HE WINS

UPDATE AND BREAKING: MITT 2.0 
Mitt Romney has announced that he will be holding a press conference tomorrow morning in Utah. He will not be talking about the Mormon prohibition against caffeine and the immorality of Starbucks. He will be talking about the state of the Republican party. 

Let's give Mitt some credit. He correctly predicted the re-rise of Russia and the national security problems they now pose. He would be a credible if not potentially winning candidate against Hillary Clinton. It was not too long ago when a credible challenger's career wasn't over after a loss in the presidential race or the primaries. 

In 1976 Ronald Wilson Reagan and President Ford went into the convention in Kansas City without either of them having sufficient delegates necessary to secure the nomination on the first ballot. It was the last "open convention" Ford used the power of a sitting president and secured the delegates he needed, but went on to lose to James Earl Carter who went on to lose to Reagan four years later. And of course Adlai Stevenson lost two presidential elections to Dwight David Eisenhower. 

The point is, for everything there is a season. Romney's time might be now. Running against Obama and all of the historical weight of his presidency was a nearly impossible task in 2012. And yet Mitt is by far and away the most qualified person that the Republicans have to challenge Hillary Clinton and be president if successful. 

Mitt could be it after all. 

He wins big on Super Tuesday.

Super T winner? The venue we cannot name. They delivered 13,500 Bernie Burgers on a charter flight to Vermont yesterday afternoon and catered the entire Hillary party in Miami last night, including 5,000 Hillary hot dogs, along with Shumie Mac and Cheese ( has some stone crab and lobster flakes in it) and some luscious grouper/shrimp cerviche - all local caught.

If Byron "Whizzer" White, a former professional football player could serve on the Supreme Court ...then who else do we know who is a former professional football player who is a judge who could serve......?

You never know.

Looks like Hillary will be the next Prez.

I have no problem with that.

OK, Trump called Rubio, "little Marco." Then, Rubio said Trump had small hands and " you know what that means..."

Can you believe that idiot Marco Rubio, a fucking US Senator could tell jokes about Trump having a small dick? That is just not Presidential.

I know what you are thinking, and I think Alan Page would make a great Justice on the Supreme Court of the US.

and I thought you were going for the Nixon reference, with him losing out to Jack Kennedy in November of 1960, and then coming back to take the nomination and the Presidency in 68 and 72.

Don't forget Grover Cleveland, who won, lost, and then actually won again in three straight elections, 1884, 1888, and 1892.

Looks like Mitt is complaining about the racist coming home to roost. The virulent hatred and cheap attacks on Obama have empowered the uneducated white racist elements and a monster naturally emerged to lead them. Good luck driving them back to the lab.

And I love the Donald's response. "Hey Mitt, blow me."
