Skip to comments.What will Romney have to do to keep from being DUMPED in Tampa?

Now that the State Primaries are almost completed, it is important to ask if Moderate Mitt from Mass. has proven himself to be able to beat unqualified, incompetent, arrogant, Marxist Obama?
The RNC made the Primary Campaign rules, and so the RNC can change those same rules. No Federal Regulator will be involved, 'I guarantee it.'
IF Romney has only a slight chance to win in November, THEN it is incumbent upon the RNC to DUMP Romney and choose a stellar Dark Horse, such as Rep. Allen West from Florida.
Nominee Allen West would nullify Obama's race card, attack Obama"care" without the baggage that Romney brings with Romney"care," be an unquestioned Conservative, be cleaner than a hound's tooth, be smarter than all known economists, solidly receive the pro-Military vote, and be the automatic favorite son of the key State of Florida.
Romney would have to really struggle to beat Allen West for the Nominee position in an OPEN Convention in Tampa.
The State Primaries were a test run, and Romney showed us that he is a weak Candidate to beat Obama, the most flawed Democrat ever to run for re-election to the most powerful job in the World.
So, in the spirit of Jim Robinson's Truce, 'Mom, Fourth of July, and Apple Pie,' let us put forth our ideas to help Romney succeed in spite of himself!
Agreed, it is a daunting task for an etch-a-sketch, mealy-mouthed, Moderate to confront the REALITY of actually losing to Obama, but if Romney can't change between now and August then he doesn't deserve the RNC Nomination.
BTW, The GOP-Elite are part of the problem, NOT part of the solution.
"If it is going to be realized that in the last week of October that Romney will probably lose to Obama a week later by at least 5 %, will you not regret that you did not do your best to replace Romney at an OPEN Convention?"
Post your ideas for or against Romney becoming the Republican Nominee here. ( Jim's truce applies on this thread, IF your manners are spotless, IMHO, and of course, Jim's Opinion).
What say all of you?
The RNC is not going to “Dump Romney”, any more than they would have McCain.
Romney’s numbers are improving weekly, as well.
These strange fantasies are not helpful. In fact, they have the whiff of trolling.
Get over it. Romney is not going to be dumped.
Go on home now...
Is this satire... Or are you serious with this analysis?
You've got to be kidding me. West would have absolutely no chance whatsoever, for the nomination, much less for the election. Let's deal in reality.
This sh*t is just stupid, pointless and destructive. Put te crack pipe away. Romney is the last man standing. He will be the GOP nominee and he is therefore, our ONLY chance to defeat obama.

I’m not sure what “trolling” is, but it just gotta be a damn site better than watching Marxist Obama get re-elected in November.
Nominee Allen West would nullify Obama’s race card, attack Obama”care” without the baggage that Romney brings with Romney”care,” be an unquestioned Conservative, be cleaner than a hound’s tooth, be smarter than all known economists, solidly receive the pro-Military vote, and be the automatic favorite son of the key State of Florida.
Whats not to like ???
His friend Herman Cain would get behind him in a heaert beat...
Herman cain has never yet endorsed Willard...
Herman made himself clear last week when he said on Neal Bpprtz he was for “unity” of the Republican Party...
What Romney needs to do is to continue to run on a conservative platform and to pick a VP who will be satisfactory to social conservatives and not hurt the ticket politically in the swing states. Obama will do the rest.

I will likely be voting for Goode.
#1: Vote Obama Out, Out, Out
#2: Vote conservative candidates into the US House and US Senate
#3: Then, if Romney tacks hard left, impeach him (he’s a white Republican; he can be impeached).
Romney is already doing what he needs to do. He has promised yet again to repeal Obamacare, and has promised again to stop any form of cap-and-trade which would be the ultimate take-over of the economy.
He’ll probably pick someone to be VP that will shake up the picture and steal the excitement from the Obamists. It may not be someone we like, though I hope it is. I would like it to be someone like Allen West but it will probably be someone like Colin Powell. Not my favorite since he endorsed Obama himself in the last election, but politically it could steal a lot of O’s thunder if a former supporter is running against him (and thereby endorsing Romney by his presence on the ticket).
We aren’t going to get a conservative this time out, but if R will at least do what he said he would do, we can continue the fight on those issues where he is weak or on the wrong side.
All he has to do to guarantee it is win about 38% of the remaining delegates. Considering most of the soft delegates are GOP-E and their souls belong to him already, he has probably already clinched.
” - - - He will be the GOP nominee and he is therefore, our ONLY chance to defeat obama.”
That reasoning didn’t work out so well for McCain vs Obama in 2008, so now that Obama is the incumbent, and Mittens de Jour is more Liberal than McCain, why should we expect 2012 be any different from 2008?
If Romney is probably going to lose to Obama, then NOW is the time to DUMP Romney and choose a WINNING Nominee. My suggestion was Rep. West, but there are many others.
The point of this thread is to test the assumption that Romney will beat Obama.
Right now the polls show that Romney has a 50-50 chance. Is that good enough, given the seriousness of this National Election? Or should we improve the odds with a better Nominee, GOP Elite be damned?!
Flame, shame or blame me, the question still remains: “Will Romney be a strong enough Republican Nominee to defeat Obama in November?”
Romney is the nominee. Get over it. He will easily have all the delegates he needs. It won’t even be close. Time to leave fantasyland and accept reality. Mitt probably has a 40% chance to defeat Hussein in November. Obama is still the favorite right now, but not by a lot.
No way Romney will pick Colin Powell. That would be very stupid, and I don't think Romney is stupid. Romney has to pick someone who will be satisfactory to the social conservatives. (Plus, Powell is too old now.)
