Mike Pence is an interesting choice to be Donald Trump’s Vice President. Some people are questioning whether Pence is conservative enough to offset the perception that Donald Trump is not a conservative. Here’s Ben Carson talking about that issue with Fox News.
Dr. Carson is absolutely right, Mike Pence is a great choice by Trump.
Pence spent 12 years in Congress and has extensive experience in foreign affairs, he knows how the Congress works – or doesn’t work. He’s also been a fantastic governor in Indiana since he left the Congress. He’s got a solid track record as a small government conservative in the Congress and an excellent record as Governor of Indiana.
We’re going to hear people screaming about how to Donald Trump isn’t a conservative from now until November, but from my perspective he’s working hard to earn the title.
Several months ago he released a list of judges that he said were just the type of people he’d be looking for for judicial appointments and for the Supreme Court. It’s the best list of potential judicial nominees I’ve seen back to Ronald Reagan. You could arguably say Trump’s list is even better than Reagan’s.
Now he brings in Mike Pence as his Vice Presidential nominee and pence as a solid record as a conservative, is a mover & shaker in Congress, and as a governor.
Trump is doing exactly what I expect as a successful businessman. He’s carefully surrounding himself with extraordinarily well-qualified people. I can’t wait to see his cabinet picks. I’m expecting either Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christie to be tapped for Attorney General and if that’s the case look out Hillary. For starters.
I think well before November rolls around you going to see that it really doesn’t matter how conservative or not conservative Donald Trump is because he’s going to surround himself with solid conservatives who will govern as a conservative should.
That should scare the hell out of Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, assuming Ryan manages to survive his primary in two weeks.
