Mitt Romney's Wife Reveals He Has No Clue Who His Running Mate Will Be

Filed under: PolitikBarack Obama

Mitt Romney is still undecided on vice presidential candidate

The big election is only months away, but Mitt Romney is STILL undecided on the vice presidential candidate he will pick to be his running mate!

In an interview with Good Morning America that will air on Thursday, Anne Romney said:

"We are certainly talking a lot. This last week, this last weekend, there was a lot of discussion. There was a lot of talk. We're not quite there yet. And we're going to be there soon."

What's the hold up?

The Republican National Convention will he held on August 27 and running mates are usually announced before then. With Mitt leaving the country to tour Europe next week, people think he'll make the big announcement beforehand.

Mrs. Romney wants her hubby to pick someone who shares her values, which could be Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty or Ohio Sen. Rob Portman or anybody else willing to pander to the Republican base.

Anybody out there have any advice for Mitt as he makes the biggest decision of his presidential campaign?

Target's Still Supporting Anti-Gay Politicians!

Really!?

Earlier this year there was a MAYJAH backlash against Target after the public discovered they were donating to anti-gay politicians.

In August, CEO Gregg Steinhafel released a statement apologizing for their decision, adding:

"…later this fall, Target will take a leadership role in bringing together a group of companies and partner organizations for a dialogue focused on diversity and inclusion in the workplace, including GLBT issues."

Apparently his so called apology were just words on paper because they're STILL doing it!

Filings with the FEC show Target has donated thousands of dollars to these politicians since August:

Spencer Bachus — voted to ban same-sex adoptions

David Camp — supported a ban on same-sex marriage and voted against protecting gays from job discrimination

Michael Crapo — supported anti-gay Constitutional amendments

Dave Reichert — supported anti-gay Constitutional amendments

Rob Portman — supported banning same-sex adoptions

Erik Paulsen — voted against DADT repeal

John Kline — voted against treating anti-gay attacks as hate crimes

Awful!

Not surprisingly, Target declined to explain their donations.

Thoughts???
