GOP contemplates the unthinkable
This weekend Mitt Romney wouldn't rule out another run for the presidency "if the party drafted him" at the convention. Apparently if Trump wins the nomination with delegates, there's talk of a self-mutiny by which the desperate party leaders will throw out his candidacy and "draft" Romney to run against Hillary instead.
If something that bizarre happens, the GOP will be a dead party. Voters by the millions will walk out on that feckless party.
I'm not a Trump supporter, but then I'm not in the "anybody but Trump" scorched-Earth group either. And I can't say that I'd show up to vote for Romney again if the GOP installs him as the nominee over the objections of the base.
I abandoned the GOP back in 2006-7 when the bank and car-company bailouts took place, I'm certainly not going out of my way to obediently pull the handle for a milquetoast schlub like Romney.
