Anne Romney Says Woman Being Eyed for Mitt’s Vice President Pick … Could they be Ayotte, Haley and Martinez?
I guess this will be called more of the GOP’s war on woman.
Anne Romney, the wife of presumptive GOP Presidential nominee Mitt Romney, stated that women are being eyed and vetted for Mitt’s pick as who will be on the 2012 Republican ticket.Wouldn’t that be something if the very party who has been continuously accused by Obama as having a war on women actually had a women on the ticket? Last time I checked, Joe Biden was an old, white dude.
Mitt Romney’s wife says her husband is thinking about picking a woman to be on his ticket this fall.
Ann Romney says in an interview, “We’ve been looking at that and I love that option as well.”
She tells CBS News she thinks the person selected for the No. 2 spot should be “someone that obviously can do the job but will be able to carry through with some of the other responsibilities.”
US Senator Kelly Ayotte (New Hampshire)
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez
Who could Mitt Romney being eying as his VP? The obvious three choices that come to mind are New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley and New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez. Ayotte probably does not bring enough to the table being a new Senator and from a fellow New England state. Nikki Haley is from a safe “red” GOP state of South Carolina. If it were my pick I would go with Martinez and I might actually chose Susana Martinez over everyone’s choice Marco Rubio. Hard for Democrats to play the women and Mexican card when Susana Martinez is the successful governor of NM, female and Hispanic.

I am not sure that Haley meets the natural born citizen requirement, but she might. If she were born here after her parents recieved citizenship she would.
Marco Rubio does not meet that test and if Romney chooses such a person, he will be rubbing salt in a wound opened by the Democrats and Obama.
Actually Nikki Haley was born in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972. I am a Nikki fan and she was quick to jump on board the Romney train and endorse him. However, I dont think she brings enough to the table. Yes she is female and a Southern Gov, but Romney will win SC in a landslide. I think Susana Martinez could be the real secret weapon for Romney. She is my sleeper that could completely energize the ticket.
Ok Red, I agree about the possibility of Martinez. Her family has been in the United States for several generations and having hispanic
roots may help Romney.
The fact that Nikki Haley was born here is not the point. If her parents were not naturalized citizens at the time of her birth, she would not be elgibile under the constitution.
Anybody seen George Rohmey’s papers?, he was born Mexico. That makes Mitt the anchor baby! If you’re down with brown, Why not Cain?
forget about Haley:
Haley is accused of taking $48,000 as a state representative from an engineering firm to serve as a “passive” consultant to find new work. She never found any.

SM: She has been accused of a lot more than that in SC, however, that is the nature of dirty politics in the state.
