Romney - Rice Ticket....Nahhh!

I totally agree with Matthew Archbold's assessment of the proposed Romney, Rice Republican ticket.

To me it's just another compromise on the way to saying "the means justifies the ends..".

Why is it the the Catholic has to make the compromise. We either practice our faith fully or we might as well be just another flash in the pan religious group, changing with whatever the times say today.

Salt without taste, luke warm water.

That's what happened with the Catholic Obama vote. Let down the path of total compromise. Obama has proven time and time again to be an enemy of the Catholic Church whether it be the Health Mandate, Abortion, Gay Marriage, or re-defining the Catholic mind set of "Don't convent thy neighbors goods". Ask Cardinal Dolan...

Here's Matthew's artical:
6 Reasons I Won't Support Condoleezza Rice for VP    

1) Abortion. When asked by a Washington Times reporter about her stance on abortion, she responded by calling herself "mildly pro-choice."
I guess babies killed during a Romney/Rice administration would only be mildly dead? Nope. They'd actually be all the way dead.
2) She's a professor at Stanford. Do you really think she's getting more conservative while hanging out at Stanford?
3) I don't trust Mitt Romney. I don't. He's been all over the map on too many issues. So I'm looking for a vice presidential nominee that will help me suspend my disbelief. I'm looking for someone to essentially vouch for Romney. 
4) Peggy Noonan seems to think it's a great idea. That's never a good sign.
5)  Judges. Judges. Judges. Who a presidential nominee picks for a vice president certainly gives us a hint as to what kind of judges they'll select. And that would say nothing good about Romney's selection.
6) One of her responses when asked  about abortion just bugged me to no end because when pressed by a reporter about her abortion stance, she reportedly said, "Well, I don’t spend my entire life thinking about these issues. You know, I spend my time really thinking about the foreign policy issues. But you know that I’m a deeply religious person and so, from my point of view, these extremely difficult moral issues where we have—where we’re facing issues with technology and the prolongation of life and the fact that very, very young babies are able to survive now—very small babies are able to survive—these are great moral issues."
You don't spend your life thinking about what you admit are the great moral issues? What? She's not brushing it off by saying it's above her pay grade but her answer sure seems a little dismissive of the 50 million unborn who've been killed at the hands of abortionists, doesn't it?
