Should Romney run as Independent or Democrat?Submitted by kvc on Thu, 04/26/2012 - 00:16
Several posts here have suggested to me a really fun (and hopefully effective) theme to advance during the endgame to the nomination.
Should Romney run as an Independent or as a Democrat? Polls show that Paul can beat Obama while Romney can't. Is it time for Romney to drop out of the GOP race? Yeah, they say he almost has the delegates he needs to win the nomination, but that has nothing to do with reality, where Paul is winning delegates (after the beauty contests) left and right.
And, dang it, Paul keeps coming up, again and again (see Rasmussen polls of late) as the GOP candidate who beats Obama when nobody else can.
Worse, whether Paul wants or not, LOTS of his supporters won't vote for anyone but him -- nomination or not. It's not Paul himself. He just showed Americans what's going on, and people support him for that. Many, many of them will simply refuse to vote for anyone but Paul -- again, not because it's Ron, but because the principles he's taught them won't allow them to vote for slow catastrophe instead of rapid catastrophe. They want to let the world know that it has TWO CHOICES: Vote Paul and get our country back, or suffer another term under Obama's growing dictatorship. Romney administration simply isn't in the cards.
