How about Sarah Palin?
I doubt Mitt would choose her. She's talked about the Death Panels in Obamacare and that would remind everyone of RomneyCare and that's a no-no. And the Bush people don't like her.
How about Michele Bachmann?
I doubt Mitt would choose her either. Great head on her shoulders like Palin and just as courageous in telling the truth about Obama and a TEA Party favorite. No can't have people thinking Mitt might actually be a closet TEA Partier. Besides the Bush people don't like her.
How about Jan Brewer?
I doubt Mitt would choose her either since she has stirred up too much trouble with all those laws in Arizona trying to protect our borders from an invasion by narco-terrorists and other similarly-minded enemies of our nation. No can't be having people thinking Mitt is for legal immigration into our country and protecting our borders from an illegal invasion into our country. No that might jeopardize the Spanish vote. And besides, the Bushes don't like Jan Brewer from Arizona.
Well, who does that leave for Mitt to consider?
How about Olympia Snowe or Susan Collins or Kristie Todd Whitman. Now there are names that strike fear into the heart of Obama for sure. And most importantly, the Bushes like them and their progreessive thinking which used to be called liberal thinking but has gone back to just being called Progressive.
Now Nikki Haley might have been under consideration at one time but since that vote against the lie that is homosexual marriage in Carolina Mitt can't possibly put her on the ticket and not alienate the homosexual vote.
So we're back to the liberal wing of the GOP for VEEP!
One thing is certain: we must continue to fight.
(The Death Peddlers, Fr. Paul Marx, p. 185, 1971)
Do not be afraid. Do not be satisfied with mediocrity.
Put out into the deep and let your nets down for a catch.

Praise to the Holiest in the height
And in the depth be praise;
In all his words most wonderful,
Most sure in all his ways!

beatification of John Henry Cardinal Newman, 19 September,
