Mitt: I May Vote for the Libertarian Ticket

    The head of the never-Trump movement has gone from stopping his nomination....to finding an indenpendent alternative to run.....to now considering supporting former NM Governor Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate.  Johnson is running with former MA Governor Bill Weld, an old friend of Mitt Romney who held court this week in Utah to a bevy of Trump foes and others.
    Governor Romney has been in a sparring match with Donald Trump and this week accused the GOP presumptive nominee of "trickle down racism."
     One state Mr. Johnson has a real shot at is Utah, where Mr. Trump is unpopular and Mr. Romney has considerable influence. It's only six electoral votes though.

The Romney tradition of being a class act asshole continues.. This guy is so full of himself no one listens to him anymore.
Mr Romney had his chance for fame and he choked.His typical Republican (balance the budget on the back of the poor)) beliefs came forth last election and the worst president in history was allowed to win.
Quit being a whinner and lets get on with the road to Trump being president and Clinton being an inmate.

Romney is only pissing off republicans and hoping to endear himself with democrats. Why is it that RINO's never learn that when they make nice with democrats, the democrats always always always come back and stab them in the back?

We see that daily with our own MOC. She is so RINO that she makes Patti Ritchie look like a true Republican..
Also of interest is that Patti Ritchie has been afraid of appearing with Liz Benjamin since her first election.. Why Patti?????????

The fact is that a vote for the Libertarian is a vote for Hillary

Trump, though not ideal, is ten times better than Hillary

To anyone paying attention to American politics over the past 20 years, Mitt Romney’s pretense of high-minded independence is laughable. His bad record and bad judgment give him no credentials as a referee among warring factions. His shady dealings rival Hillary Clintons own credentials;
Romney’s motives are open to question. It was revealed recently that a “Romney for President 2016” account was opened in January at a Washington, DC bank by Red Curve Solutions, a campaign management company. The idea being floated by some pundits and “elder statesmen” is that Romney can be “drafted” at the Cleveland convention in July after the 2,000-plus elected delegates reject Donald Trump. That is one of the colorful fantasies popular in Washington these days.
The truth is that Romney has a dubious history of interfering in Republican primaries to manipulate the outcome—and more often than not, picking the wrong horse, and by that I mean the losing horse.
Romney did that in a Republican primary in Colorado in 2014, when, with the help of Gov. Chris Christie at the Republican Governors Association, another elitist enclave, he secretly funneled money to a front to finance an 11th hour Colorado radio hit piece against the leading candidate in the GOP gubernatorial primary— which happened to be Tom Tancredo.
Romney’s out-of-state “dark money” helped push the number 2 candidate — who had been the losing GOP candidate in 2006 — into the victory circle. Predictably, Romney’s chosen “sure winner” then lost the general election in November.
Sound familiar? Yep, Romney knows how to pick winners — and losers and he certainly is a loser in many ways
But let’s return to 2016 and Romney’s newest venture into king-making by way of political assassination.
Romney’s unprecedented, venomous attack on the leading candidate cries out for condemnation as totally unacceptable, traitorous behavior and also puts the exclamation mark on his attitude of F--- the people
Our nation is at historic crossroads, and a third term for Obama is a path that leads to utter destruction of the Constitution.
In 2016, the stakes are enormous, so yes, political rhetoric has gone off the rails. But even in perilous times, the people should have the final say, not unaccountable elites like the gang behind Mitt Romney.
As one of the characters in the movie “The Big Lebowski” said, “This is not ‘Nam, there are rules.”
One of the cardinal rules is, thou shalt not insult millions of Republican voters by implicitly endorsing Hillary Clinton as preferable to the Republican candidate who has followed the rules and won ten of the fifteen primaries.
This is Romney’s real message, and everyone who echoes him understands it: Better to lose the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton than put Trump in the White House.
That is what Romney is doing; he knows it, and so do the minions who follow his advice. He is willing to help elect Hillary Clinton if that is the price for “stopping Trump.” It is familiar territory for Romney and party elites: his father, Michigan Governor George Romney, did it to Goldwater in 1964 with help from Nelson Rockefeller.
Patriots have a message for all of the Mitt Romneys of the Republican Party: Sit down, shut up, and get out of the way. The Cleveland Republican National Convention belongs to “We, the People,” the elected delegates, not to you.

Republicans supporting other parties? Never heard of that. Is that a thing? Why belong to a major party, and not support it? The dumb is still in play. Romney was the down fall of the party, and they just don't get that. When he ran, his own party ate him for dinner. He lost due to his own people making him out to be the biggest dildo in history. By the time the election came, many in that party did not go out to vote. Sadness set in. So sure the Dems ate it up. If the same stupid trend rolls up this time, might as well hand Hill-Dog the keys this week.

Romney is right and the Republican party is getting what it deserves. Being the party of "no" hasn't worked out very well, which you will all finally understand when Clinton takes the White House and the Democratic party very likely takes the Senate.

8:37 You forgot your hatred of the Bush/Hitler/CIA/Grampa dynasty.

Love it when you trolls try to pose as GOP'ers.

2:03,

Well, up until 20 years ago the Republican Party at least made the effort to appear for smaller government, lower taxes, lower intrusion upon your personal life and at least showed a modicum of respect for the restrictions placed upon them by the Constitution. That's all gone away now. You don't have to be a democrat pretending to be a GOP member to hate the republican party now days. There's plenty of reasons for true republicans to hate the Republican Party at this point in our history. Ass wipes like Mutt Romney, Loophole McPain, Mitch McConnel, John Boehner, and Michael Bloomberg are no more republican than Al Gore or John Kerry.

The GOP has become infested with 1960's type liberals because the current democrat/communist party has gone so far to the looney left they have been abandoned by their own party. There are so few people left that believe in making it on their own without government oversight and in personal freedom that we have next to nothing for influence anymore. Everyone wants a handout because it's "to hard to make it on their own". When I was a young man most people would sooner put a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger rather than shame themselves by admitting they needed help from anyone else. Accepting help from someone else was the ultimate humiliation.

Tocqueville wrote, "America is great because it's people are great. America will cease to be great when it's people cease to be great". I fear we have reached that point. So don't be too hard on 8:37.

Romney didn't even support is own run for presidency, why would he support the current republican nominee?
