Panic! Romney VP app sends tease

(CNN) – At 2:45 p.m. ET, the alert came: You have a new message from the "Mitt's VP" app.

That's the smart phone program that Mitt Romney's campaign says will be the first to announce the presumptive GOP nominee's pick for running mate.

- Follow the Ticker on Twitter: @PoliticalTicker

Alas, Wednesday's message didn't contain the hotly anticipated name, only a message for supporters to "Enter for the chance to meet Mitt & his VP!"

It also didn't give any indication of when the pick would be announced.

But at least we know we're getting the messages.

    Robmey has no mind of his own. Yesterday President Obama sent out a message to have dinner with him and Michael Jordan. Now today Robmey has to come up with something. Lame Brain ideas hard at work.

    Packerfan, do you even have any idea what you are saying? What the fcuk is "Babylon America"? And how in the world do you think Obama is a king? You mean he went to war without going to Congress first, twice? That was Shrub. You mean the Affordable Care Act? Yeah, it's really bad that some people who are poor can get medical insurance rather than have to wait for an emergency so they could run to the hospital and get cared for ON OUR DIME.

    You watch Fox a lot. Right?

    Come on CNN, you already have the best News reporting in the U.S. Do you really need to streach it this far ? lol....President Obama is far more important.

  11. Obama 2012 - BEND Forward America, take another 4 long years of OBAMA FAILURE

    Way to go Romney... Anybody he picks will be better than Crazy Joe. I still think that guy needs his head examined. Obama is incompetent and Joe is nuts. Egads, no wonder this country is doing this bad.

    somehow the repugs want people to think that the twitt is a person and not a robot.

    Panic! Romney is desperately trying to change the conversation away from his tax evasion allegations.

    Mitt, I think you are supposed to have charisma or at least a personality in order for that to work.

  15. will never vote Republician again

    Show us your taxes! That's all AMERICA wants to see! Pawlenty was the worst Gov Minnesota has ever had. Left office with a huge deficit! Thanks for nothing!

    There is panic in the Romney camp. The cries for the release of Mitt's tax returns grows louder, his favorability ratings are slipping, all the lies he has told are being exposed, it appears that no one wants the VP slot, and he has turned to that race-baiter Newt Gingrich to gin up support for him.

    Will the meeting take place after or before he announces the VP? If it takes place before he announces, all his announcement hypes will be deflated by media. He better keep it secret until he announces it because whoever go to the meeting most likely will leak it to the media.

    We don't care who Mittens selects.
    We do care about his tax returns. No fake distraction by Willard is going to shift the focus from his returns. Show us the returns Willard or GTFO.

    I bet it is blank because he still has no idea. I wonder if he has done any better with vetting running mates than McCain. I don't think that is going to mean much.

    Ok...Obama produced his birth certificate, verified by every possible department of the Hawaiian government. Now, us your tax returns for the past 10 years so they can be verified. Just the IRS will do.....

    I'm an independent, & will NEVER vote for another Republican! They are being held hostage by the Teathuglicans & King Nordquist! Plus Romneyhood inspires no faith whatsoever in me with his continual evasion of the tax return issue, lame brain attempt to go to Europe & brainwash people there (very & he looks like, & seems to have the intellect of, an oversized Ken doll!
