Skip to comments.How Mitt Romney could take down Trump: Become the Republican Ralph Nader

No, even though the votes from last week arent even all counted yet, it is, of course, time to move on to the next election. And while the discussion so far has focused on which Democrats are running and who among them is best positioned to defeat President Trump, Ive got the perfect candidate to dethrone the Donald.
Its Mitt Romney.
Or maybe Jeff Flake. Ben Sasse? Sure, whatever. Any of them will do.
Because Im not suggesting that any of these vocal Trump critics from within the presidents own party including Massachusetts re-gift to Utah run as a Democrat. I dont even want them to take on the president in a primary. We already saw how that ends.
Instead, Im asking only that one of these allegedly responsible Republicans each of whom has unleashed hell upon Trump in the form of a sternly worded speech/tweet/press release/raised eyebrow run as a third-party candidate. Its time for one of these supposed independent thinkers who just cant abide Trumps dangerous rhetoric to put their considerable monies where their mouths are.
Romney has referred to the president a con man and a fraud. Flake, an outgoing senator from Arizona, has decried the coarseness of our leadership. And Sasse, a Republican senator from Nebraska, has said he thinks about leaving the party every day because of Trump.
That all sounds great, guys, truly. But if you want to earn brownie points for standing up to Trump, youre going to have to do more than talk and tweet about it.
Youre going to have to Nader the guy.

I am sure it’s a regular dream of Mitt’s.
Mittens- more like the Republican Jill Stein.
“Mitt Romney. Or maybe Jeff Flake. Ben Sasse?”
If either of those three unseats Trump and becomes the candidate, I will go fishing that election. Or hell, it might be better to vote for Ocasio-Cortez directly instead of enduring the GOPe death of a thousand cuts.
Mitt RINO isn’t taking down anybody. I love the media trying to move heaven and earth to find anybody that can seriously take on Trump. If that person existed, they would’ve found him during the last election.
Romney has proved his instincts stink.
The only way someone could “Nader” Trump, is if that person were MORE Trump, than Trump himself.
This guy’s big mistake is assuming a “moderate” Republican third party candidate would only draw votes from Trump. If the Democrats keep going the way they are and nominate some left-wing loon it’s very likely that a squishy moderate would appear very attractive to Dems.
The Original President-In-A-Can Mitt Romney doesn’t have an imaginative bone in his body, is incapable of thinking on his feet and Trump will make an absolute fool out of him if he tries to go toe to toe in opposition.
Mitt Romney: Unsafe at Any Speed.
Wow, the stupid is strong with the Globe. Stronger than normal even for them.
Nader couldn’t Nader anybody anyhow.
Silly Mitt has no pull amongst most republicans. Trump has his base and his detractors. But Mitt is nothing to Trumps base.
Mitt, the republican fidel castro.
The president’s only real detractors are the establishment NeverTrumpers who have absolutely have no connection with the Republican rank and file voters.
Because Ralph Nader won the Democrat office?
Naders a joke - and so is Mittens so I guess the analogy works there.
Wouldn't he have to become a Republican first?
Ol’ Nestor isn’t suggesting that Romney, etc., could unseat Trump in the primaries. What he is suggesting is that a “moderate” running 3rd party could draw enough Republican votes to ensure the Dem candidate for President would win.
IMO, it would be a political suicide mission.
