Is a Draft Romney movement — with running-mate Rubio — coming soon?

So, it's come to this, huh? "Is a Draft Romney movement — with running-mate Rubio — coming soon?", Web Link

"There is a growing panic behind the scenes throughout the upper echelons of the Republican Party. There is an increasing fear that the candidacies of Donald Trump and Ben Carson, whom most high-level Republicans privately believe are not fit to be president and commander in chief, could lead the GOP to a defeat on the magnitude of President Lyndon Johnson's landslide victory over Republican nominee Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.) in 1964."

We hear that 50 is the new 30. Now I'm wondering if Romney is the new Reagan? The GOP is in such obvious and complete disarray that they actually think (and some of them actually believe) that reaching into yesterday's sack of losing tricks will do the trick?

Dear GOP: What will do the trick is just about anything that resembles a leader, which you do not currently have in your fold. Dusting Romney off for another spanking isn't the solution to your party woes.

I've gotta believe that their's an adult somewhere in the GOP upper crust, but I have yet to see any evidence to support that belief.

The GOP has alienated women, gays, millennials, old folks, immigrants, minorities and so many more ... and Romney's going to ride in on his pearly white horse and save the GOP day?

Good Luck with that ... strategy.


Hate speech on hold while people are identifying their dead children in France.

While there is no question that the French bombings are yet one more tragedy that we all suffer, it has absolutely nothing to do with this topic.

Does the world stop because of terrorism? Is there no news, but terrorism? Are we to fall further victim to terrorism? Is the 2016 US Presidential election now on hold or just cancelled because of terrorism?

Get a clue, Seal, and a grip. There is more 'out there' than your little world and how you might feel on any given day - said with all due respect, of course.

Seems all the interest is on the GOP side, even with fanatics like George.

I'm giving up on you George.

Thank you, Seal; bout time.

It is not me you should be paying attention to. That, Seal, seems to have been a problem for you. Focusing on topic is where any energy you wish to expend should be expended.

The idea, or perhaps fact that you do not appreciate the gravity of the state of our politics (particularly on the national level), our severe shortcomings in leadership and the utter collapse of one of this country's oldest major political parties seems to have you buggered. I can't help that.

All I can do is continue to post what I find as bizarre coming out of this campaign for President. That you don't care for that is your problem, not mine.

To make matters even more strained, I am and have been posting on what the Review calls the "Legacy TalkAbout" - the 'old' TA and one that the Review has stated that at some point they will retire. You have to almost go out of your way to come here ... yet you do and have ... complaining every step of the way.

That wouldn't be so bad, but for the fact that you have gotten very personal, which is both unappreciated and in violation of the Review's TA policy.

"I'm giving up on you George." Good. Now we can either talk issues, or not talk at all. Either way is fine with me; your call ... again, with all due respect.

This thread is about the piece initially linked: "Is a Draft Romney movement — with running-mate Rubio — coming soon?" That is pretty bizarre, a move of desperation in discussion (let alone in reality), and a severe cry for help from the GOP. If you, or anyone else would like to comment to the topic, your comments are welcome, embraced - even in disagreement. Your continued personal attacks, however, are not welcome.

Have a nice (very windy winter's coming) day.
