    Don't expect to see Mitt Romney at the Republican Party's national convention this summer. An aide to the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee confirms that Romney isn't planning to attend the convention where Donald Trump is expected to become the Republican Party's 2016 presidential nominee. The aide spoke on the condition of anonymity to share internal discussions.

    Donald Trump won the New Hampshire presidential primary in February, but Republican Party officials are planning to block his delegates from places on the rules and platform committees at the July national convention, according to NHPR. The slots would go to delegates that were assigned to Marco Rubio, Jeb Busch, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz, even though Trump won 35 percent of the vote, according to a report in Politico. The committee assignments were released in a blind-carbon-copied email from the New Hampshire Republican Party's executive director, Ross Berry, according to a story in The Guardian. A source in the...

    With his five blowout wins Tuesday night, Donald Trump has passed Mitt Romneys popular vote total from four years ago and is on a trajectory that could land him more Republican votes than any presidential candidate in modern history by a lot. Trump surged to 9.9 million votes, according to totals that include Tuesdays preliminary results across the northeast and could rise further as the final votes are counted. Thats already more than 100,000 more than Romney earned in the entire 2012 primary season and tens of thousands more than John McCain earned in 2008.

Tom Cotton (R-AR) 79% , and others on his hypothetical shortlist of third-party candidates that he could run if Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee. The Weekly Standard editor and self-styled neoconservative power broker is back to talking about a third party, declaring that a Trump victory in Indiana would force him to re-focus on his so-called Latter-Day Republicans independent ticket. A third party could help to split the vote on the Right and elect Hillary Clinton president, which would allow Kristol to stave off...

    RNC Meeting Spring News 2016 and super PAC research | April 24, 2016 | Self - RNC spring convention observation
    In addition to "grass-roots" campaign workers, there are at least eight Super PACs backed by 'shadow elites' who are driven to defeat Donald Trump and they are banking on Ted Cruz. At least one of these super PAC leaders, Katie Packer of OPP, met behind closed doors at the RNC Spring Meeting this week in Florida. Packer states that a republican candidate should "uphold orthodox GOP ideology." This smacks of irony given her past allegiance with Romney/Ryan and Ryan's inability to uphold GOP principles as Speaker of the House.

    A popular culprit is former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. His crime? Welcoming Trump's endorsement in Romneys own race for president in 2012. . . Romney didnt seek Trump's endorsement because he thought it was worth having so much as he wanted to prevent Trump from making a disruptive kamikaze run. By sidelining Trump, Romney kept Trump's politics from entering the nation's bloodstream for another four years. If only today's Republican leaders could have done the same.

By contrast, the party's nominee in 2012, Mitt Romney, didnt reach 49 percent in a poll until mid-April of that year. As YouGovs William Jordan noted, Romneys highest polling number prior to that was 40 percent, which he achieved once in mid-January 2012 and once at the end of February. Support for Trump has been over 40 percent in the last four national polls, and flirted with the 40 percent mark in some polls in early December. Single polls...

    Political consulting and morality go together about as well as that famous fish and bicycle. Lawyers have constructed a neat paradigm obligating them to handle any and all clients, a very convenient way to maintain pretext of high road while taking any road possible. So it is with political consultants. For years when asked my positions on issues, my standard response has been, I dont have positions, I have clients.

    Harry Reid spent months attacking Mitt Romney in 2012 for not releasing his tax returns. Now the Democratic leader is at it again, after Romney suggested this week there could be a "bombshell" in Donald Trump's tax returns. An incredulous Reid mocked Romney's statements about Trump's taxes when the Nevadan was asked about them on Thursday. "Ha, ha. (Romney) never gave us his tax returns. Who was the brainchild that got him to do that?" Reid said at a news conference."He gave us a summary. He never gave us his tax returns."

    During a phoned-in appearance on Fox News Wednesday afternoon, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney dropped a big ole’ a dirty bomb on Donald Trump. Speaking to Neil Cavuto, Romney said, without any evidence, that he has “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes.” As someone who suffered through every moment of Romney’s feckless presidential campaign, the first thing I thought to myself was “Where the hell was this killer when we needed him most?” Listen, I have no issue with Romney dropping a dirty bomb, especially on a Donald Trump who is the master...

    Karl Rove believes there is still time for Republicans who don't want Donald Trump to be the 2016 GOP nominee to get behind a candidate - but it's running out. In an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal out Wednesday night, the former senior adviser to President George W. Bush took stock of Trump's recent string of victories. -snip- Before the op-ed was published on Wednesday, Trump was already going after Rove on his favorite medium of attack. "Big defeat last night in Nevada for Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. @KarlRove on @FoxNews is working hard to belittle my victory....

    Donald Trump fired back at former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for wondering Wednesday if a "bombshell" was sitting in his unreleased tax returns. Fresh off his victory in Nevada, Trump fired off a trio of tweets at Romney, calling him a "fool" and a "tough guy" for his attack, adding that he should have beaten President Obama as the Republican nominee in 2012. >>>Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrumpWhen Mitt Romney asked me for my endorsement last time around, he was so awkward and goofy that we all should have known he could not win!<<< >>>Donald J.

    Donald Trump is leaving the door open to not releasing his tax returns, just hours after Mitt Romney warned Wednesday that the billionaire's tax documents could contain a "bombshell." The GOP front-runner said in an interview with CNN's Anderson Cooper that he will "make a determination over the next couple of months" as to whether he will release his tax returns... It was also an attack steeped in irony, since Romney was on the receiving end of similar claims by then-Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, when Democrats eviscerated him over his fortune and business record during the 2012 campaign. Reid...

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney stated that Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz(R-TX), and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL) ought to release their taxes for “the last two years that have already been filed” and that there’s “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes” on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel. Romney began by saying that both Trump and Democratic candidate Senator Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) were connecting with voters who were upset with the Washington, which hasn’t made progress. He added, “I think there’s...
