Portman for Veep?

The Rob Portman buzz machine continues unabated.

Sunda, The Washington Post ran a feature on potential vice presidential candidates - seven Democrats and six Republicans were mentioned.

Portman made the cut.

Check it out here.

Dream on. In the first place, no Repug would pick Portman. You really think they're gonna pick Bushie's OMB guy and Trade Rep guy when the Bush regime gave us record budget and trade deficits? Sheesh. They're not that stupid.

Step back from your ga-ga routine for RP. Do you think they would pick Don Rumsfeld for VP, given the way the invasion of Iraq has gone down? Even the Repugs aren't that stupid.

Besides, it is becoming increasingly obvious that no Repug has a snowball's chance this November anyway.

If you like the impact that the UN, the WTO, the IMF, the World Bank, GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, PNTR with China, open borders and the wars in Bosnia, Afghanistan and Iraq have had on our country, then you'll like Rob Portman as a Vice President. He is an avid admirer of Jean Monnet, key intellectual architect of the European Union who recognized that economic integration must inevitably lead to political integration, and he supports all the economic entanglements currently being engineered to ensnare the U.S. in the North American Union and the Transatlantic Common Market as a prelude to world government. With his previous experience in government and the connections he has developed, Vice President Rob Portman would make a fine advisor to both the Transatlantic Economic Council and the Transatlantic Policy Network.
