Let's get one thing perfectly clear right off the bat. The title of this "thread"
is misleading, Ron Paul isn't president YET, nor do I
personally believe that he will actually get elected.
Sad fact of the matter is, this is a throwaway election for the GOP candidates. This is why they are trotting out people like Newt Gingrich, Mitt
Romney, and others. The candidates that actually do have a shot, and aren't as completely insane as this group is, aren't running till 2016.
Statistically, incumbent presidents get re elected. The RNC knows this, and is just showing the bottom of the barrel of their ranks in order to make a
show of this election cycle. They will end up gaining more seats in the House and the Senate as people are WAY more pissed at congress than they are
at this president.
As you have seen in this GOP freak show, each candidate is getting their turn in the spotlight, right now, Ron Paul is getting his turn, edging out
Newt Gingrich, and he may even eventually get the nomination for the GOP ticket. But he won't win the election, he's frankly an internet meme, a
pathetic has been career politician who says things that he thinks the public wants to hear, while all the while working in the house doing things his
campaign contributors and special interest groups want him to.
So, to answer the question in the OP, who should be his running mate? Who cares? Hell, put Michelle Bachman in with him, doesn't matter anyway, he
won't be elected. He stands no chance against this president.
If he was smart, (which he isn't) he would wait till 2016 and make a real run at the White House. Course then, the GOP will be bringing out their
real candidates, and he still won't have a shot. Frankly, he should just retire and go on the book selling circuit and do tv shows.
