It didn't keep Romney from the nomination. Why would it stop Chrispie? It's his turn. I bloody hate it, but the elite have already decided. Notice how the press magically loves Chrispie now?
The elites choose our candidate for us every time. They "nudge" the base into their chosen direction. A little praise for their guy here, an little slam for the other guy there.
Eventually, with all the praise and slams being planned in advance, their RINO(D) ends up with the pie.
No one wanted Romney, but in the end, he was the only one the REPUBLICAN talking heads were praising. All the others got slammed 24/7 or outed somehow - buy our Republican elitists. In the end, either we vote for their guy, "or the democrat wins."
Christie’s appearance will kill him. (Maybe literally)
