Following Marco Rubio’s humiliating loss to Donald Trump in his home state of Florida Tuesday, Rubio suspended his presidential campaign. Ohio Gov. John Kasich’s death watch campaign was briefly revitalized in Ohio, but has zero chance of being removed from life support. Watching him mulishly dig in his heels in order to keep this from being a Donald Trump / Ted Cruz primary borders on obscene.
From stage left, exactly on cue enters Paul Ryan, another RINO sprung from the same political gene pool as Bob Dole (1996 – losing to Bill Clinton), John McCain (2008 – losing to Barack Obama) and Mitt Romney (2012 – losing to Barack Obama). Ryan is now equivocating on whether he’d accept the nomination if Republicans are faced with a brokered convention in Cleveland this summer. That’s been the Establishment’s plan since it became evident presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is not beholden to them, could wrest control from the elites and place it in the hands of the people. The GOP power bloc doesn’t like independent minded conservative Texas Sen. Ted Cruz any better.
From the catbird’s seat, creating havoc appears to have been the Republican syndicate’s scheme from the moment it was apparent Trump might be unstoppable. Ryan at a Glance, a brief overview, should be at the top of conservative’s reading list today.
Failed presidential contender Mitt Romney’s disappointing running mate, now House Speaker Paul Ryan, is keeping his options open
“You know, I haven’t given any thought to this stuff,” Ryan fudged Tuesday night. “People say, ‘What about the contested convention?’ I say, well, there are a lot of people running for president. We’ll see. Who knows?”
