Head of VP Search teasing us on Thune.

From ABC NEWS:

Beth Myers, the head of Mitt Romney’s secretive vice presidential search, kept the mystery alive Friday when she gave a “Friday Follow” shout out to a number of potential running mates for the presumptive Republican nominee.

and…

#FF @KellyAyotte @timpawlenty @GovChristie @BobbyJindal @marcorubio @RepPaulRyan @newtgingrich,” Myers tweeted, spurring a flurry of speculation from reporters on Twitter about the names both on and off the list.

But soon after, Myers, tweeted a second message, rounding out the list with more names widely considered to be on Romney’s list.

#FF @robportman @bobmcdonnell @CondoleezzaRice @johnthune @Gov_Martinez @RickSantorum.”

That doesn’t exactly narrow it down.

Read it here.  The Argus is also writing about it as well:

Republicans who have campaigned for him have reportedly made his short list, including former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and Marco Rubio from Florida.

Thune told the Argus Leader he?s ?not waiting for the call? from Romney. But that won?t keep him from traveling the country during the next two months to help Romney, Senate candidates and people running for office in South Dakota.

?I don?t expect it to happen, but I do want to help,? Thune said after attending the opening of a Republican campaign office in Springfield, Va. ?I know it?s a campaign that?s going to cover a lot of ground, and a candidate can only be in so many places.?

By his own statement, he’s not waiting for the call, but it’s incredibly flattering for Thune and South Dakotans that we have a US Senator with the respect and stature to be considered.

    You?re Catholic, right, Mr. Powers? After his Zionist fund-raising trip, Willard is wrapping up his Europe trip with the Pope.

    Public Policy Polling just posted 2016 dream team results from Iowa: Thune barely registered but Rick Santorum was at the top of the heap.

    The whole primary charade was concocted and engineered by the RNC where primary voters and caucus-goers were led down a primrose path then treated to cookies.

    John Thune is a wimp, Portman too connected to war criminals, and Willard needs a wounded rabid catholic blowhard like Rick Santorum (not to mention his delegates) and will put him on the trail to assail the President without thought.

    Pennsylvania is under the microscope in the wake of their pedophile epidemic providing the perfect backdrop for the GOP?s assault on Democrats.

    The earth haters have chucked the West in their Veep strategy and will let the chips fall where they may. They have loads of money and will saturate commercial broadcasting with tripe.

    Santorum is vetted, well rested, and has been studying at the Rove school of spit-slinging.

    The last time two governors appeared on the same ticket was in 1948.

    I think Thune has a better chance to be picked as Romney’s running mate than the national pundits think. Romney’s got to motivate the evangelicals somehow Bible Institute of Los Angeles (Biola) graduate Thune fills that bill.

      P.S. Many evangelicals don’t believe mormons are even Christian so they need some stroking before they will vote for mormon Willard.
