Mitt Romney to disrupt 2016 race by inserting this third party candidate

Rumor has it that Mitt Romney is marshaling the troops in the Republican Party in a last-ditch effort to stop the Trumpster. Personally, I will not vote for Trump. I would write in Cruz still, even though that has no chance of working. I would never in hell vote for Hillary either. Romney is floating Kasich or Ben Sasse as a third party bid. I don’t know one constitutional conservative that would EVER vote for Kasich. As for Ben Sasse, I would consider it. However, I feel it is far too late. If these RINO Progressives had fully supported Ted Cruz and aggressively helped him beat Trump, we would not be here. But they feared Cruz too much because he would stop the gravy train and corruption. Now, we are about to have a nominee sooo corrupt, it makes the RINOs look almost saintly. These people are experts at losing and this time, it is fatal.


From the Independent Journal:

A band of exasperated Republicans — including 2012 presidential nominee Mitt Romney, a handful of veteran consultants and members of the conservative intelligentsia — is actively plotting to draft an independent presidential candidate who could keep Donald Trump from the White House.

These GOP figures are commissioning private polling, lining up major funding sources and courting potential contenders, according to interviews with more than a dozen Republicans involved in the discussions. The effort has been sporadic all spring but has intensified significantly in the 10 days since Trump effectively locked up the Republican nomination.

Those involved concede that an independent campaign at this late stage is probably futile, and they think they have only a couple of weeks to launch a credible bid.

But these Republicans — including commentators William Kristol and Erick Erickson and strategists Mike Murphy, Stuart Stevens and Rick Wilson — are so repulsed by the prospect of Trump as commander in chief that they are desperate to take action.

To show you how insane these people are… earlier prospects included former senator Tom Coburn ­(R-OK) and retired Marine Corps Gen. James N. Mattis. Both are good men with absolutely no chance of winning. Former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and retired Army Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal have been bandied about as potentially potent political outsiders as well. Rice is a Progressive and McChrystal has his own issues. The recruiters also delved into the world of reality television for someone who might out-Trump Trump: Mark Cuban, the brash billionaire businessman and owner of the Dallas Mavericks basketball team. Cuban is a freaking Democrat, you idiots. He has appealed to Hillary to take him on as VP. Although I will give him this… his quote via Business Insider on Trump: “There’s that guy who’ll walk into the bar and say anything to get laid. That’s Donald Trump right now to a T. But it’s all of us who are going to get f—–,” Cuban said. This is messed up. What we needed was a true constitutional conservative… one we have searched decades for and we found him in Ted Cruz. You threw that away. Now, we will either get a Marxist or a fascist. We are toast and after it all burns down, all we can do is pick up the pieces and try and survive. Well done, you morons.
