Pistol Packin' VP?

So according to the chattering class, New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez is a favorite for the number two job in the eventual-but-assured Romney candidacy.

I like what I see so far, but then again, I gave Sarah Palin the benefit of the doubt too......then she started talking.

I like the fact that is is pro-2nd Amendment, and I do know about her stance on gay marriage. Outside of what is typically found in the news, are there any major detractors with Martinez?

Martinez Bio


  1. It smack of another Palinesque circus trick.

    The GOP needs to drop the gimmicks and put forward serious candidates.

    Bobby Jindal.

  2. Damn shame Nikki Haley doesn't want the job. Everything I've seen tells me they won't Palinize her, and regret if they try.

    Jindal is a good alternative as well.

  3. If memory serves, Jindal is quite the fundamentalist. This could be strategy for the Romney team [should they choose him] to offset the suspected negative connotations of Mormonism......but a Jindal pick would not sway civil libertarians to the GOP this November.

    Evangelicals really have nowhere else to turn to on Election Day, dismissing Independents could turn out to be a costly mistake.

    I'm not sure Haley would join the ticket, given her current legal issues, but Palinizing is a self inflicted wound.

  4. Jindal is Catholic, as is Santorum and Gingrich. Evangelicals have nowhere to go. Catholics and Mormons everywhere, not a "real" Christian in sight... /Sarc off
