GOP Ticket Could Be First in 50 Years With No Foreign Policy Experience

Jul 19, 2012 Full story: www.usnews.com 38

Rob Portman, Bobby Jindal and Tim Pawlenty are reportedly presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney's final three options to be his running mate.

Mitt Romney, a conventional presidential candidate who rarely takes big political risks, is poised to do something historically unconventional and politically risky. The presumptive GOP nominee lacks foreign policy and national security experience, but Romney appears ready to buck the 50-year-old practice of picking a running mate who does.

William J. Clinton was actually a decent President after he lost his majority in Congress and had to work with the GOP controlled Congress.
Clinton (Bill, that is) was originally hated by the leftists in the Dem party as he was considered too moderate. That of couse was before they realised they needed to fear him......

Once Americans made the pitiful mistake of electing a Community Organizer with no experience doing anything for President ANY ONE put forward by Republicans would be better than what we have now.

If that would be the case, I ask why did it not work for Bush with his war in Iraq?

Or electing an oil man, so as to increase the price of his product, which in my opinion will never come back down.

Diesel a gas bi-product, cheapest fuel to refine and now since George the highest price fuel in which affect every American every day.

Oh, and all the while the big oil companies were making more profit than anyother corporation in the history of this planet. Strange!!!!!
And so it goes

You have a very simplistic view of world views. That appears to narrow your objective view of the world, but it sure makes spitting out inane comments easier.

HHHHMMM, sometimes a "simplistic view" can show more than sophiscicated arguments.

Is diesel a bi-product of refining gasoline - yes. Was diesel fuel always the cheapest fuel to consume before George Bush - yes.
Was big oil making more profit than anyother corporation in the history of this planet while George was president -yes.

If you disagree with any of these "simplistic views", show me where I'm wrong.

You seem to have "forgotten" the numerous factors that effect gas prices.

Wrong.
1 thing drive the price of gas. What we are willing to pay.
Right now Gasoline is the #1 American export. We are making gas faster then the whole world can use it. Supply and demand does not work in Oil Markets. Oil and fuels operate outside of the rest of the economy.
Natural gas and fracking is why we are making so much gasomine.
Oil refineries burn petroleum to generate heat to burn petroleum into its various parts, one of which is turned into gasoline.
WE have so much natural gas that instead of burning petroleum to make heat to make gas, we now use natural gas to make the heat to burn crude into gasoline. Basically doubling our output of gasoline. So if gas was $4, and we double the output, we can make twice as much, for half the price, then gas should be $1.50
That will never happen.

WRONG
You didn't disprove my comment.

The bottom line is oil is sold on the world market. Events in the world effects the price of crude. Your rambling about fracking still will have no effect on price for barrels of oil

James E. Carter ... His non-existant energy policy facilitated the oil embargo,creating the greatest energy crisis America had known to date.
....
First, WW2 was a HELL of a Stimulus Program! Nothin' else like it.

Second, you are obviously confused, linking the Carter presidency to the 1973 Oil Embargo that happened on Nixon's watch.

Better luck next time!
