Yeah, kind of. Is there anything productive we can do to avoid Romney and the unmentionable one? Is there a viable 3rd-party candidate? Is there a way to end up with a convention floor fight and have Romney lose? Do we need a new party?
These are questions I'm hoping can be robustly discussed on this thread over the next few days!
No and no.
There is no 3rd party candidate with any chance whatsoever of beating Obama and there will not be a brokered convention. There will be one man on the ballot that has a chance of beating Barack Obama. His name is Mitt Romney. If you want to defeat Obama, vote for him. If you want to send some kind of message or make a statement, vote for someone else and accept a second term for President Obama. But make no mistake, bury your delusions, these are your only choices.
So now what?
