Ann Romney: No decision yet on GOP running mate

By AP Staff

WASHINGTON (AP) - The wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says her husband hasn't yet decided on a running mate.

Ann Romney told ABC News in an interview taped Wednesday that that the campaign is "not quite there yet" on the final decision.

She says discussions about vice presidential candidates took place last week and ran into the weekend. The Romneys spent that weekend at their vacation home in Wolfeboro, N.H., where they also plan to spend this coming weekend.

Romney aide Beth Myers is leading a search that is thought to include Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, among others.

ABC News released excerpts of the interview. The full interview is scheduled for broadcast Thursday on "Good Morning America."

    Mrs. Romney, please ask Mitt to seriously consider Col. Allen West for VP! If there are any negatives, I am unaware of them, it would be a very strong ticket, and, Col. West would “mop the floor” with Joe Biden in any debate.

    When I consider who Romeny should pick to be his VP I read between the lines. Col. West showed he is capable to handle the job as VP, but after the Zimmerman/Martin incident I saw something that turned me off about Col. West. He quickly took the innitiative to side in with Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson along with Obama and Holder. He quickly condemned Zimmerman when the news first broke instead of waiting since he knows all to well that the media is liberal and biased.
    If Col. West could make up his mind just by reading all the BS that came out at the onset of the Zimmerman/Martin incident then he no better then all of the other black politicians who calimed that Zimmerman was quilty until proven innocent. I have worked for many years in a prison system which was 85% black inmates and 85% black in staff. The superintendent of this prison system was also black and acted as though he was on the staffs side until he became the superintendent and overnight he began showing his racist attitude toward the guards, especially the non black guards and staff. The first time I saw Col. West and heard him speak I picked up the same vibes I did with this superintendent. I didn’t judge Col. West based on my instincts and gave him the benefit of the doubt, that is until he made his comments about the Zimmerman case. I even kept an open mind as to the guilt or innocence of Zimmerman and still am keeping an open mind, and if when I do follow the case when if comes to court I will make up my mind based soley on the facts that are presented by both sides, but I will say I receive many emails to donate to Col. West’s campaign fund but refuse to give anything to him. If he wins the election I will follow him carefully and see if he shows any more bias towards people who are not black and hope that my assumptions were wrong, but after 15 years working in the prisons then 10 more years as a police officer I am usually correct with my instincts since my life depended on them every working day.
    Radman and thecitizen, you may feel that I am a racist and you would be wrong. I am just an older man with wisdom much more then most men of my age.
    As far as I see at this time, Condi would be the most intelligent candidate for the VP position but I think she would be best suited to be Romney’s choice for Secretary Of State, she has vast experience for that position and learned everything she knew in the universities she attended to fit that position. Since the VP candidate is more of a figurehead, I think Romney should pick carefully and choose a candidate that will ensure him the Southern vote, especially in one or more of the swing states that is desperately needed for him to win the election, and since lately their have been a slight swing toward Romney by women voters a moderate women candidate would best suit Romney’s chances to win in November.
