Beltway Republicans wrongly excited.... Condi Rice has many strikes against her that cannot be overlooked. First, she is pro-abortion, or pro-choice as the murderers of unborn babies like to say. Second, she served under George W. Bush, which is a negative to many voters. Third, is she the president-in-waiting that we want for future elections when Romney is gone?
Rice has described her views on the issue as "mildly pro-choice." She said in a 2008 60 Minutes interview: "I myself am someone who believes strongly in parental notification. ... I'm against late-term abortion, which is, I think, really very cruel." But, Rice added, "I have not wanted to see the law changed because it's an area that I worry about the government being involved in." (Weeky Standard)
Is mildly pro-choice something like being a little pregnant, or a little dead? There is no such thing.
Sarah Palin is the delight of the TEA Party and strong Conservatives, but even she drank the kool-aid. Palin said, “I think that Condoleezza Rice would be a wonderful vice president, and she certainly has much more experience than our sitting president does today...” . Really Sarah? Really?
How are the Republicans going to deal with this? One idea:
But picking Rice would be problematic for Romney because that would either require Romney to break his pledge to pick a pro-life VP or require Rice to change her position on abortion. (Weekly Standard)
Come on. Is that really what we want in a candidate?
If Romney wants a Black VP, why not Allen West, who would be a fantastic president-in-waiting. West is genuine, he doesn't need to flip-flop on anything.
Rice has repeatedly said she is not interested and would not accept the VP slot. I pray she keeps her word.
As to the Mitt Romney campaign, it has been suggested that all this hype about the VP pick is to stir interest, continue to bring in donations. Could be. But I doubt he will get many donations from pro-life voters. For Drudge, the hits keep coming.
Any politician who is pro-abortion should immediately be disqualified as a Republican candidate. Period. Move along.
Some things should not exist, like gray-colored meat in a grocery store meat department, or a deli waitress with sores on her lip, -- or a Republican candidate who thinks there is nothing wrong with killing unborn babies.
