Poll: Help Mitt Romney make his VP pick


ABC’s The Note reports that the Veepstakes are on for the Romney campaign:

BOSTON – Mitt Romney today revealed for the first time that he has put longtime adviser Beth Myers in charge of his vice presidential vetting process.

“I have selected someone who has been a counselor of mine for a number of years, Beth Myers. She was my chief of staff when I was governor,” the former Massachusetts governor told ABC News’ Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview.

“I’ve asked her to be the person who oversees the process of the vice presidential selection and vetting an analysis and so she’s begun that process and is putting together the kinds of things you need to do to vet potential candidates,” Romney added.

Asked whether there is a deadline for choosing his running mate, the presumptive GOP presidential nominee said he does have a deadline in mind but would not reveal the specifics.

“It would certainly be by the time of the convention,” he said. “I don’t think we’ve chosen the time we’d actually make an announcement,” Romney said during a stroll through Fenway Park, where he is scheduled to join two contest winners at a Red Sox game.

Political pundits are throwing names out there like Rep. Paul Ryan (WI), Sen. Marco Rubio (FL), and even Gov. Christie (NJ). I don’t have a clue who Romney is going to decide on, but I feel fairly certain two out of the three are out of the picture (exception being Rubio).

Your guesses?

(Video) The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a work of SCIENCE!!!


**Posted by Phineas

Don’t look at me like I’m nuts! I heard it on Egyptian TV! It must be true!!

And here’s a sample from the transcript:

Whoever does not believe me can look at The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. This is no book of poetry or stories. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is a matter of undisputable science.

There was a meeting of the Freemasons in France, and a French woman managed to smuggle out some dangerous documents, which circulated in the meeting.

Between 1897 and 1951, the secret Zionist groups held nearly 23 meetings, one of which was a large gathering, which included over 50 Zionist groups. They issued several documents: How can we gain control over the world’s minds? How can we gain control of the media? How can we turn the mighty national armies into cantons, which will fight one another? How can we gain control over the flow of capital? How can we gain control over the presidents and state leaders, and turn them into collaborators?

A French woman managed to smuggle out these documents, which serve as the backbone of The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

And the rest, as they was, was history. A fruit-loopy, conspiracy-mongering history straight from the persecution complexes of minds that can’t handle the modern world, but still a form of history.

According to this site, al-Nas TV is an Islamic religious channel specializing in programming for muftis, scholars who interpret Islamic law. In other words, important cultural and spiritual leaders for significant portions of Egypt’s population. And this is what those “scholars” are learning.

Following on from the questions asked earlier, one has to wonder just how Israel is supposed to negotiate and make genuine peace with a society suffering from cultural paranoid psychosis?

Somehow, I think the question answers itself.

RELATED: The real history of the Protocols is that they were written around 1905 by a Russian mystic who plagiarized a French satirical work that itself never mentioned Jews. He just added them to “prove” Jews were out to control the world. You can read all about it at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s site. Sadly, like Hitler’s Mein Kampf, the Protocols is very popular in the Muslim Middle East.

(Video) Pat Condell on Israel and the United Nations

Pat Condell’s back to ask a very good question: Why in the name of sweet reason would anyone who isn’t brain-dead or a Western leftist (but I repeat myself) ever expect Israel to do anything ordered by the UN, which is dominated by genuinely barbaric and Antisemitic dictatorships with appalling human-rights records?

Preach it, Brother Pat!

Oh, and he asks another good question: Why on Earth is the US still hosting and paying for this Club Med for Tyrants?
