The News having little of importance to cover will consider anything news worthy. A Senator from Florida and a former Secretary of State have both said they are not seeking the Vice Presidential position on Governor Romney's Republican ticket. What is most not worthy of being covered nor speculated upon by the Main Stream Media is that two very qualified people would not seek to be in that position. That is only a Heartbeat away from becoming President. It is the position of President of the Senate and used to break ties in that body (not often but importantly).
I also guess that one of the reasons that the press doesn't cover that, is that the press doesn't think elected offices are of more use to it than the behavior of Actors, singers, and sports heroes in selling ad time. They have exactly the same weight. If boring life were television worthy, there would be more of it on television. No, the media is in selling products, and selling producers and sellers ad time. Rush Limbaugh seemed humbled by being asked to front for the Republicans under Bush the elder against Clinton (the last?) because he knew what he did had nothing to do with making the country stronger, smarter or more humane. What he did was stimulate discussion not covered by Main Stream Media, allowing the conservatives an opportunity to expound and vent and show they weren't stupid. But he did it so he could sell airtime for products that would make him money. Overseas, the Armed Forces finally broadcast an hour of Rush Limbaugh's show, one of three. I would have rather have had straight Blues, or Jazz without words but I wasn't in charge. I -stopped listening at all to Rush Limbaugh when I found him outraged and ignorant of the truth during the invasion of Haiti, or was that a kind of rescue mission? No matter, he had fallen for a poor First Sergeant's complaint about not having enough ammunition for the jump into possible combat. It was not true.
I would rather on several levels have either the Senator Rubio, or the Secretary of State Rice as Presidential candidate than either Governor Romney or President Obama - but like what I wanted to listen to on the radio - I am not in charge. I think both of them would serve if Governor Romney sincerely requested their participation for that ticket. They both are still stirring up the support for the party. I lean just a little bit more towards the former Secretary, she is honest enough to say she is a little pro Choice. A true politician wouldn't take that position. I, myself, am for a woman's choice (to have sexual relations) - until she gets pregnant, then I think the unborn child should be protected until age eighteen when the mother and the doctor can go into an alley with the now grown child and fight it out to see which one has God on their side. It would only be fair. Abortion is five steps deeper into personal Hell than any woman needs to go. But jeering and cheering and crowds of stupidity all around - drown the cries of Love, and the moans of blessings unwanted. The government doesn't care, for the government has no soul and cares not for anything but itself.
Well, I hope that Governor Romney continues to do a fine search for the perfect Vice President, I voted against Senator Obama because he picked Senator Biden. Which told me more about Obama than all the lauds and lamentations I had heard from his lips and the star struck media. And for a transparent President the seal on his school records says so much. And although the dumb Democrats want to make much of where, Swiss Banks, Governor Romney has some of his riches -- they haven't said he has hidden anything from the tax man. Knowing that people that work for Obama politically may just be very stupid when they say that Romney might be a felon... it could be true, no one in politics or Washington DC has any honor left.
Or, as I told many military men on their way to the Pentagon, all the REAL Soldiers in that area, are all in Arlington, in the Old Guard or buried beneath the soil. All others are politicians, and that is sad.
