Sen. Corker and Sen. Ernst Drop Out of VP Chase

It's very telling that after one interview with Donald Trump, Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) dropped out of consideration. For all of his conservatism, Corker at least isn't an idiot (unlike so many Repug Senators). https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-politics/wp/2016/07/06/corker-withdraws-as-potential-trump-running-mate/

Sen. Ernst (R-IA) also just removed herself from consideration. This is also significant as she is a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries. This essentially means that the Kochs don't want to go anywhere near Donald Trump. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/07/joni-ernst-trump-vice-president-225169

We live in interesting times.

1. How about Saddam? At least he won't say NO!

I hear he's very popular with some people even today.

2. I'm thinking it's gonna be Newt. Especially given the exchange he had with Biden.

14. This is Newt's path back in the game

I would be shocked at this point if it wasn't him. No other major Republican has as little to lose as him.

I would not be surprised to see Articles of Impeachment within a year of Trump winning the White House. Anyone with half a brain can see how dangerous a Trump Presidency would be.

On the flip side I am thinking that Romney still might pull it out at the convention. It would be better for the Republican party overall.

4. He should select Mr. T

Imagine his role as the attack dog in the campaign. I pity the fool that has to go up against him.

5. Right, he should dig up Saddam and have his corpse be his running mate.

10. Cruz would be a perfect fit. plus it bolsters Trump with the teabaggers.

 

Cruz is so desperate that he would take the job. A prick and a dick running together.

12. If no one in the GOP top tier wants to align with Trump, and the 2nd tier has refused him,

who's left? Some yappy backbencher or a denounced former politico, someone willing to sell their soul for a chance to play the part of the obsequious, over eager, Odie the dog, a puppet who does tricks for Trump on demand? Who can Trump turn to... whose left besides washed up celebrities and has been sports figures, or the always redeemable, cashiered ex-military nutter?
