Hell win in NY and CA, so what? He wont in the general
This is the money quote. It’s the fact that the GOP-E refuses to recognize. Either that, or they know full well what they’re doing and know damn well they’ve propped up another loser.
Why on earth do you think Rick Santorum can win in the general election? It is mi d boggling to me that most here believe that when you are so clearly in the minority.
Oh the GOP-e recognizes. They expect, however, that all the traditional Republican states in the South will fall in line will support Romney in the General over Obama, so in their opinions, Romney could get blown out 99-1% in a place like LA, and they still wouldn’t care because at the end of the day, the expect GOP voters to support Romney.
This is why voting for Romney is a dangerous proposition in the General. It will give the GOP-e only more fuel for shoving RINOs and Moderates down our throats.
The nominating contest needs to be tilted in the following ways: Make the Traditional Republican states WTA and the Moderate/Liberal states proportional based on the Statewide vote, not CD. You do that, a conservative might actually win the nominating contest.
Romney is a sacrificial goat for the Obama campaign. The GOP-ee is focusing on winning the Senate and keeping the House so they control the money and committee chairmanships.
Yo, dipsticks! What if Romney sucks so bad in the primaries that he totally bombs out in the general and takes down the tiers below — as in a landslide defeat? Such blowouts have consequences, but that could NEVER happen? Right. Got it.
