This is about as ludicrous a scheme as I've ever heard, And, if by chance, Karl Rove has dug up some ancient Druid runes and melded them with old, dark magic to cast a spell to make this happen, the conservative base would have a complete meltdown in Cleveland and I dare say, there would be a massive shootout at the Quicken Loans Arena, for sure.
Anyway, It's obvious Trump has been reading these stories too, so he's getting his people ready to do battle.
Add House Speaker Paul Ryan to the list of politicians being criticized by Republican Party presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
Speaking at a town hall meeting in Bluffton, S.C., the New York businessman sounded as if he blamed 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's loss on the selection of Ryan as Romney's vice presidential running mate.
"That was the end of that campaign, by the way, when they chose Ryan," Trump said, according toa report in the Washington Post. "And I like him. He's a nice person, but that was the end of the campaign."
The comment, which was made at a retirement community, came as Trump was responding to a question about Social Security, the Post said. Ryan, a Janesville Republican, has long been a proponent of entitlement reform. Democrats and their allies attacked Ryan's proposals on Medicare.
"Every single other candidate is going to cut the hell out of your Social Security — remember the wheelchair being pushed over the cliff when you had Ryan chosen as your vice president?" Trump said, referring to an attack ad. "That was the end of that campaign, by the way, when they chose Ryan. And I like him, he's a nice person, but that was the end of the campaign. I said, 'You've got to be kidding — because he represented cutting entitlements, et cetera, et cetera.' The only one that's not going to cut is me."
I thought my prayers had been answered by the state of the Republican primaries so far, but a brokered convention, too? Praise, Jesus!
