Romney will be in Cleveland, for RNC Convention

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Skinner (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: USPolitucs News Hub

Mitt Romney will be in Cleveland for the Republican National Convention. And he’ll be there for one reason, and one reason only: To steal the GOP nomination from presumptive nominee Donald Trump. So said a Romney insider on Wednesday who has been on the money with his Mitt Romney predictions for the past year-and-a-half.

"Rule changes. That’s how Mitt’s going to do it; how the GOP is going to do it,” referring to just how Romney is going walk out of Cleveland with the GOP nomination."

2. The Newshub?

Never heard of them and it looks like their presence online is minimal. Sorry if dump water on this thread but during the primaries I saw so many articles from Sanders supporters about the impending Clinton indictment from no name news sites. It would be from 19 year old "reporters" that spent a semester in high school in a journalism class claiming they had sources in the FBI saying that the chargers would be filed next thursday or some shit. Unless it is a well established news agency, I would be extremely skeptical about these random "news" sites.

If no candidate gets the 270,

what happens?

IOW, if the gop has 2 candidates, a real republican (Romney) and a pretender (Trump), what happens to a big chunk of the democratic argument?

That is: Not Trump.

Romney is not-Trump and would be running on the same slogan. As well as the other not-.

was by actions taken to level the playing field in the states by leveraging the voting process.

Add in the fact that there has been almost no coherent state strategy and we're definitely in deep doo-doo.

BTW, the current HOR is the one getting to do this special.

There ain't no cavalry.

your opinion of the "writing on the wall"? News Hub is actually a fake news site "where contributors can publish what they like" ,that's straight from their about page.

This is LBN and sources should be vetted by the poster who posts the info.

it's from a source that actually let's readers generate "news",it pays people by how many clicks an article generates regardless of whether it's factual,the guy that wrote the article is some idiot in Florida who sells Home Alien Abduction Verification Kits and who's claim to fame seems to be writing jingles for K-Mart,I found this about him on a conservative site:

Or condescending opinion

Bill Singletary...the journo who wrote the story..has written for Reuters and Miami Herald.

The only proof you can proffer that the story is false..will be in 2 weeks

Unless, of course, you have inside information of evidence, verifiable, to the contrary.

Why is your Mitt-fit in such a loud cry foul...wringer?

They have statutes about making unsubstantiated remarks about a person. Who, by the way, has his picture there and his name ( unlike his accuser..being being a nym).

Surely Reuters and Miami Herald are far better suited to make the charge...than you are.

37. "Independent Journal Review was unable to meet with Singletary in person.

When asked if he would meet with a photographer over the course of three days, he said he was busy.

Both Singletary and the account for Schorr claim to have reported previously for Reuters, Cosmopolitan, and the Miami Herald. But Independent Journal Review was unable to find evidence of Singletary’s work through search engines or a Nexis database search. Singletary was unable to provide clips of his past work, saying they were on an external hard drive he’s “had difficulty accessing.”

But Singletary said his readers aren’t concerned by the bylines."

Mitt represents the calm logical moderate Republican. Sorry but he has no chance against a blustering Trump who will no doubt electrify the crowd, that will be mostly made up of Trumpsters there to see him, with all manner of loud, illogical, and extremist rhetoric. That crowd will not stand for anything less (or more?)

35. I knew this long ago

 

I noticed that Mitt registered with the FEC on March 14 or so. I knew then that he was going to try to become the nomenee. The GOP loves them some Mittens . The Trump character has limited shelf life , he is completely floundering now , he's nothing but blutstering flop sweat. He's is a joke and there is no way the billionaires who own that party are going to allow this idiot to piss all over them . I'm telling right now, bet on it. Put your life savings on it . One way or another , Mittens is going to be a very formidable candidate.
I don't care what this source is , I am the source around here.

Blackwater was "Xe" and is now called Academi

42. The whole Romney scenario makes sense

This all makes complete sense. I could care less about the source. No news source is completely trustworthy. The proof is in the pudding: Romney either shows up in Cleveland or he does not. Has the poster above ever heard of pseudonyms?! I even went back and checked out the author's Romney articles. He called Romney's anti-Trump speech in Salt Lake City two days before Romney announced he was making the speech. The News Hub reporter was the ONLY journalist with the scoop on that story. To me, that's some damn fine reporting. So much for the 'reliable news source' argument.

Romney has kept himself in the race without having to answer to anyone. He's sought face time, been active in GOP politics and policy matters, and has never ... ever ... thought about anything else but the brass ring of the presidency. Whether he's successful or not remains to be seen. But I think that the poster in this thread who's hurling all kinds of unsubstantiated allegations at the reporter needs to due a little due diligence and study the accuracy of what's been written.

As you stated...we'll soon see

And I did converse, by email, with counsel ..when I pisted the first piece from Mr. Singletary.

The respondent even discussed the Haas v Romney case issue ( though one has to believe only pro Mitt parties would be privy to such insider information).

My threads, for years, have been telling everyone...Mitt Romney's coming...and it's queer that Im still here...to see it

Trump will run as an independent just to fuck with him.

Romney's only hope will be to hold HRC under 270 EV's, where it will then go to the House of Reps and Ryan will get him selected.
