That’s sad that it came to that. What makes them think that abandoning/alienating the social conservatives will result in either political sense or the country being turned around from its present downhill slide?
For all I have disliked Romney since his minions went after Palin in 2008, the one thing which is clear is that Romney is smart, and a clear-thinking competitor.
A small part of me, continues to hope Romney comes to the (to me inevitable) conclusion that the only way he can possibly avoid a bruising tea party insurgency making his life constant misery for the next four years - is to bring Palin onto the ticket. A move even most disgruntled Freepers would find difficult to resist.
I have not yet, dismissed the logic of the move.
It would absolutely, energize the base for Romney.
