    Ok, hear me out.

    Likely you've heard today the remarks Romney has made about Trump.

    What if Romney spent much of this year really slamming Trump, and at the same time telling Americans how much better we can do.
    What if he also spent time saying how we need to stop illegal immigration and how we must get our border secured ?

    What if he also talked a lot about jobs and the economy and how we need to keep what we've got right now going ?

    In short, what if he talked about many of the things Trump has talked about, but without all the drama, immorality, snarkiness, etc.

    Then, what if he announced early next year that he was going to challenge Trump in the primary ? Think he would have a chance ?

    Four words, "binders full of women". Nuff said.

    If the Democrats somehow succeed in their multi-year threat to dispose Trump and the GOP abandons him for Romney or another pressed-suit McCain/BobDole lookalike I'm done voting. This country can go to the dogs.

    I've no use at all for the Democrats and only slight respect for the Republicans. For 50 years all I've heard people do is bitch about politicians and corruption in DC. They finally get a guy in there, an outsider willing to bust his knuckles to try to straighten some of it out and just because the guy is blunt, willful, outspoken and very flamboyant, and yes, kinda crass at times, they want to go back to business as usual???

    So the argument is I can trump Trump and you can be proud of me? Not enough upside there to trust he wont Bush out.

    The Hill ^

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) blasted Sen. Mitt Romney on Friday after the Utah Republican said he was "sickened" by President Trump's actions in the Mueller report.

    "Know what makes me sick, Mitt? Not how disingenuous you were to take @realDonaldTrump $$ and then 4 yrs later jealously trash him & then love him again when you begged to be Sec of State, but makes me sick that you got GOP nomination and could have been @POTUS," Huckabee tweeted.

    Huckabee, an ally of Trump who is also the father of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, pushed back hours after the Utah senator blasted the "dishonesty and misdirection" described in special counsel Robert Mueller's report.

    "I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President," Romney said in a statement posted to Twitter.

    "I am appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia — including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted to inform American law enforcement," he wrote.

    Nope. Ol frog legs had his shot against Obama and he pussed out. Him and Kasich think their only hope at the Presidency is to go all in on the Trump bashing. It won't work.

    You can't win running as a Dem light, Romney's loss is proof. So is McCain's.

    Mr. Romney would stand zero chance IMHO.

    People are still pissed at him for his pathetic excuse for a campaign in 2012 and his failure to take it to B. Hussein O.

    There is no reason to think that he could defeat President Trump in the primary and even less reason to think that he could vanquish any of the Democrat Party contenders.

    If Romney wants to become President- he would do better to switch parties and join the Democrat race. He would seem very moderate compared to the other D's, and could attract crossover voters in the Democrat Open Primaries.
