It's about 40 minutes to his second hour. Says if Romney loses Michigan, no one gets 50% of delegates. Says Jeb Bush will be in the room when McConnell/Christie team is picked ...

McConnell is a first string establishment guy. Christie is a liberal. They just refuse bold changes. Again, we get the shaft. I wish Palin would get in with Newt. I am so sick of the ruling class.

I assume this should be McDonnell (the governor of Virginia), not McConnell (the senator from Kentucky).

No. This is all about money and power, making certain that those who want to change the way business is done in Washington, D.C.

McDonnell has endorsed Romney (Romneycare/Obamacare)

Santorum previously endorsed Romney.

Christie, was for the ground zero mosque/could go along with that.

I read a lot about some odd-ball getting picked at a brokered convention. I think it's a deliberate scare tactic.

Seems every author forgets to mention that it STILL takes 1,144 delegate votes to win the nomination.

If the first ballot fails, they can vote for whomever they want.

And it doesn't have to be McConnell or Bush.

LOL, and it’s even worse for those of us with large touchscreens.

You spray one of those and the PC feels a 1000 inputs at once and tries to follow everything instantly and you have to pull the power and reboot.

If he means our courageous senate minority leaders he’s nuts as Jimmy Carter.....Wouldn’t vote for the other guy named either.....Christie? I’d sooner vote for Ron Paul than 2 non vetted insiders. I don’t know either of these guys....The choice will have to be from the 4 left running, you cannot just pick someone at random and run them. Thats even too stupid for republicans to do....

Some states don't release their delegates until after the second ballot.

The GOP-e is delusional. I wouldn’t trust Mitch McConnell to bring my garbage cans to the curb. Christie would bring the cans to the curb. But, he’d probably pull a Costanza and fish out a half-eaten eclair.

A Mitch McConnell/Chris Christie combination would be insane. But, fortunately, Larry Kudlow meant Bob McDONNell, not our zombie-esque, charisma-deficient Senate Minority Leader.

But that combination is still crazy. Why choose candidates from two non-crucial states instead of John Kasich and Marco Rubio from must-win Ohio and Florida?

In any case, if Romney loses Michigan to Santorum it won’t be solely because Romney is awful but also because Santorum is very good at convincing people to vote for him, even when outspent 20 to 1 — an ideal trait for a politician, which should propel Santorum to the nomination and probably the presidency.

I really can't stop laughing at Kudlow for this, especially since I'm such a Palin supporter. I mean, the Convention would turn to McDonnell?

That is like turning to Mitch McConnell!

Speaking of sombreros, if Kudlow insists on Full Metal RINO, can't we go with a guaranteed Open Borders Candidate and end the hypocrisy? You know, like this guy?

Best,

Chris

And if it does happen, the GOP will get a drubbing from top on down in historic fashion. There will be NO enthusiasm for this loser ticket. And maybe that’s what the GOP really wants.

What better way to break up the Tea Party and maintain Status Quo at the same time than depressing GOP vote.

A real ticket would mean Bonehead, cantor and McConnel would
lose their positions. Can’t have that. So depress the vote.

Dang, I figured the Mayor of Munchkin City would be up in there somewhere, as far as establishment wet dreams.

Who are they kidding though, really? In the event of a deadlocked convention, Palin will play a large role. Nobody motivates Republican voters to support a candidate like she does.
