    Mitt Romney has instructed his closest advisers to explore the possibility of stopping Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, a source close to Romney's inner circle says.

    The 2012 GOP nominee's advisers are examining what a fight at the convention might look like and what rules might need revising.


    "It sounds like the plan is to lock the convention," said the source.

    Romney is focused on suppressing Trump's delegate count to prevent him from accumulating the 1,237 delegates he needs to secure the nomination.

    But implicit in Romney's request to his team to explore the possibility of a convention fight is his willingness to step in and carry the party's banner into the fall general election as the Republican nominee. Another name these sources mentioned was House Speaker Paul Ryan, Romney's running mate in 2012.

    The GOP using procedure and loopholes to ignore what the voters want to cater to the lobbyists that put them in office?

    I'm shocked.

    If Trump wins Florida or Ohio it would certainly put their plan in jeopardy, if he wins both I would think game over.

    Thats the DNC's 2016 playbook. I guess they really are two wings of the same bird.

    Hillary is bought and paid for, as is everyone on the GOP side besides Trump. Trump is a major problem for the Washington establishment.

    If they pull this shit, there will be pitchforks. The DNC went against the will of the people already, now the GOP will pull the same shit?? Fuck them.

    Romney is getting killed on all forms of media for his clearly puppet speech. Fuck Washington and burn it to the ground.

    Romney = magic underwear-strangling choke artist .

    I don't get how a one term, flip flopping governor presiding over a state lagging behind the national average in education and job formation who blew an election he should have won going away, qualifies to be the spokesman, let alone driving force for anything other than a change in trash pickup schedules. :dontknow:

    If Romney has the balls to attempt something like this, we saw no evidence of it four years ago.

    If Trump is the nominee, he'll need the help with foreign policy. I'd be willing to bet Snooki knows more about foreign policy then him.

    Romney is a joke. Most of the stuff he tried to smear Trump with sounded like what people say about HIM. Funny none of this bothered him back when he was kissing Trump's ass and accepting his endorsement. Just shows what a lying sleazebag that loser really is. Amazing the clueless RNC hasn't figured out that ignoring the wishes of the voters is exactly what turned people against them.
