I wondered how hard he could be on Trump since Trump endorsed him in his bid. Well, that didn't take long to answer. It is open season on every person past, present and future. It seems more bloody this year as the Republican establishment tries to find a way to oust Trump. Needless to say they're botching it but good.
There he stood, still with the movie star looks and beautifully tanned. His voice was firm with conviction. He sliced and diced Mr. Trump to a fare-thee-well and it rang with truth. I could find no argument with anything he said. If you haven't heard it here's the transcript.
Trump took on Romney's remarks during a rally in Portland, Maine. I watched briefly then went on with my morning chores. I couldn't listen to any more self aggrandizement in rebuttal.
Romney had an interesting ploy though. He suggested that people vote for who ever is ranked highest in the polls where it is someone other than Trump. For instance Kasich in Ohio, Rubio in Florida, Cruz has already won Texas. Should any of them actually win that would give all the delegates to them thus depriving Trump of the numbers needed.
Point being, after the first vote at the convention delegates are released to vote for whom ever they want. Thus a brokered convention. Actually the Democrats may have one themselves if Hillary's troubles catch up with her. Who would they choose? Perhaps Biden. I'm not sure. But who for the Republicans? Romney perhaps? He's said he wouldn't run but could he be chosen after the fact?
Curious times these. I have no idea how this is going to play out but I hope all who are planning to vote realize this isn't a single circle circus. It has all three rings. Our domestic woes and foreign policy are the two other than the nominee. Who ever wants it most had better distinguish himself from the field, as small as its getting to be, and start talking concrete policy and quit the name calling.
