Romney Compares California To Struggling European Nations
sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com...



Romney told supporters in Iowa on Wednesday that business people think America will “become like Greece or like Spain or Italy, or like California—just kidding about that one, in some ways.”


I would say the above is attacking California for voting for a Democrate over the Republican Meg Whitman. People might not know it but Meg Whitman go started at Bain Capital. She spent 13 years there working with Mitt. Her present job at HP really does not look to good. Its showing no progress since shes been in charge. So is Mitt thinking of teaming up with Meg?

Political positionsWhitman was a supporter of former Bain Capital founder and Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney's presidential campaign[50] in 2008 and was on his National Finance Team.[51] She was also listed as Finance co-chair of Romney's exploratory committee.[52] However, after Romney stepped out of the race and endorsed McCain, Whitman joined McCain's presidential campaign as a national co-chair.[53] McCain mentioned Whitman as a possible Secretary of the Treasury during the second presidential debate in 2008.[54]


Just showing that I am not off the wall with this thread. She was Finance co-chair of Romney's exploratory committee.

I'd say no. Mostly just based on the fact that a VP pick boosts the ticket a few percentage points in that VP's home state. 2-3 Percentage points isn't going to help Willard win California. So, more than likely he'll choose a candidate from a state in which a few extra points could could make a big difference. But, Willard isn't going to win no matter who he picks as his running mate.

If he does, this should explain it:


The fourth wealthiest woman in the state of California with a net worth of $1.3 billion in 2010,

I just find the hidden meaning behind his comment interesting. It was a stab at California for not following the Bain Capital Meg Whitman Mitt Romney way by voting for Meg Whitman. She is in his head as a person who should have been ther because she would of fixed things. His thought is she can do it. So he could be making a choice and hinting about it.

It would be appropriate considering she spent a hundred mill to get elected and lost anyway.

I currently work for HP, at a location with 3000+ employees. The stock price isn't what we want it to be, but morale is up and the company is doing what it needs to do to properly position itself. Layoffs are a very unfortunate part of that repositioning, but the actual number of people leaving the company will not be as high as expected. Fixing Leo's mistakes are going to take a bit, but having met Meg Whitman and spoken with her, I believe she is taking us in the right direction.

Having her as a running mate also makes no sense for Romney. In order to have any chance at defeating Obama, Romney is going to need someone with impressive political credentials, and not one that comes from the same kind of business background that Romney himself already has. I would think he is looking more at people with experience in foreign policy, social reform, and large-scale (non-business) change management.

Maybe Romney should just go ahead and pick Palin to be his running mate. The stupid things she'd say could distract people from the stupid things Willard says.
