This doesn't make any sense

Why would Romney even do this? Unless Ron Paul is closer to winning than we imagine...

Otherwise, it seems like he should just let Paul have the few hundred delegates that he earned, and try to have unity and respect in the party. That way he would pick up at least SOME of the votes of Ron Paul supporters in Maine, Minnesota, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Colorado and other swing states with a lot of Ron Paul supporters.

This strategy, though, burns the bridges, ensures that hardly any of the Paul supporters will vote for Romney (and some will even vote for Obummer out of spite) and will all but ensure losses in all of those swing states. It just doesn't seem to make any sense.
