Snyder for V.P.? Don't be Ridiculous
In the movie "Animal House" frat brother John Belushi turns to a pledge at a party and says: "Grab a brew, it don't cost nothin."
The same could be said for silly political speculation: It don't cost nothin.
The latest silly speculation is that Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder might be a viable candidate for vice president.
That theory was first floated by a Florida-based GOP consultant and blogger, based on the fact the Michigan delegates for the Republican Convention in Tampa got the city's second best hotel location behind Mitt Romney's home state of Massaschusetts. Apparently, that's a big deal.
Let's be real.
Snyder isn't going anywhere on the national stage. At least not to Washington.
And the last thing Romney needs is a Republican moderate to join the ticket.
Let's face it, Romney is a moderate parading as a conservative. The base of the party suspects that. Snyder would just confirm those suspicions.
Sure, Romney could use a boost in Michigan. He initially trashed the auto bailout. And he dumped on unions during the primary to show conservatives he values their values.
Snyder could help him out. But Snyder doesn't have to be on the ticket. A guy like Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, would make the ticket far more likeable for Romney and the party base. Of course, I'm just speculating.
It don't cost nothin.
