Romney Locks Up Nomination – So Who Will be the VP Pick?

It’s finally official, Mitt Romney has secured enough delegates to give him the Republican nomination for president. So who do you think should be his VP pick?

After all these months of running, The Boston Globe reported that with his Texas Primary win on May 30, Romney secured enough delegates to lock up the Republican nomination. It's pretty much a certainty now that Romney will be the one to challenge President Barack Obama in November. Up until now, Romney has been coy about naming his vice presidential pick, saying he hasn’t yet locked up the nomination. Well, he can’t say that anymore.

So who do you think will be Romney's running mate in November? Who would you pick if the choice was up to you, and why?

Mark Rubio, he is young smart and is a shinning star. He can carry a swing state. Also has the opportunity to become the first Latino President. That would be awesome for the Latino community.

Gen. David Petreaus. Foreign policy and military expertise. He could also fill Mitt's #1 qualification for taking over as president due to his leadership experience.

I hope Marco Rubio. He makes me think of a young Reagan. And as young as he is, for some reason, when I hear him, I think of the word "maturity". How refreshing it wouldbe to get someone who isn't interested in pleasing people who can throw money his way or to his friends, someone who isn't in it for a popularity contest and power.

I know what you mean Tammy, nothing says "maturity" to me like living way beyond your means and racking up mountains of debt just like Ronald Reagan. From the WSJ: "...Marco Rubio staved off foreclosure proceedings on a home he co-owned with another Republican, David Rivera, who is running for the House in South Florida. But the campaign acknowledged Mr. Rubio still carries a pile of debt on two homes, a home equity line of credit, a car loan and more than $150,000 in student loans." http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703399404575506243855555802.html?mod=WSJ_NY_MIDDLETopStories

Good thing he was smart enough to figure out he could use the Florida GOP's credit card as a back-up. According to the TBT..."U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio charged grocery bills, repairs to the family minivan and purchases from a wine store less than a mile from his West Miami home to the Republican Party of Florida while he was speaker of the Florida House." http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/legislature/article1075692.ece

"I know what you mean Tammy, nothing says "maturity" to me like living way beyond your means and racking up mountains of debt " Well hell then Brian...Barak Obama, your personal hero, dang sure is VERY mature then, eh?

I'm with you Floyd. You just can't please some people. If he has debt and a near foreclosure on his house....that's bad. But if he is fortunate enough to have LOTS of money, then that's bad. In my opinion, most anything is better than what we have!

Right Ruth...which is why Mike Beaudreau should be eliminated from the BOC as well....because anything is better than what we have right now....
