  •  it isn't a question of imploding, it is ? of time (0+ / 0-)

    there isn't enough time for him to implode to save romney

    ample time for implosion for the general

    but the nomination is newt's, romney just doesn't have the time to wait for a newt implosion

    •  I doubt he'll have to wait long (0+ / 0-)

      If all of this were taking place in a vacuum, then sure.  But it's not.  Newt's Republican opponents are already starting to open fire.  Perhaps more importantly, the Republican establishment (read: the 1%) doesn't want him.  Romney's their guy.  They'll do what it takes to get him the nomination.  Get your popcorn ready, because it's going to be fun to watch!

      •  Iowa is only a few weeks away and a win for (0+ / 0-)

        Newt will squash romney

        not enough time for them to defeat Newt pre iowa and he is in margin of error for NH and leading double digits in the next 2 = SC and FL

        •  Hardly (1+ / 0-)

          You mean the way Pat Robertson's win crushed Bob Dole?  No, Iowa is not decisive.  Romney doesn't have to win, he just has to place.  Besides, a month is an eternity in politics.  Rick Perry went from de facto nominee to amusing footnote in a month.  Ditto Herman Cain.
