  •  You don't think he'll fold before Sep. 25? (0+ / 0-)

    He can't get out after that date. That's the point of no return. So why do you think he in it until the bitter end?

    Have you googled Romney today?

    •  My money is that he stays in until Nov. 6 (2+ / 0-)

      but if his internal polling shows him dropping like this Ras poll, I could see him pulling out.

      Again, he's ignorant but he's not stupid.

      a sweet enough deal, why would he drop out?  He drops out, he has no chance of ever becoming Senator Akin.  If he stays in, he at least has a chance.   He owes the Republican party nothing at this point.  And I don't believe for a second his loyalty to the rethug agenda is higher than the loyalty to himself.  Why would he give up the hope of becoming a powerful man, with the potential of making millions after, unless the Republican party have him something very meaningful in return.

      I think he'll probably drop out.  Because I think the party will get desperate and offer him something huge that he can't resist.  So I think there is a game of chicken going on - and he's a participant in it.  I'm just hoping they play the game long enough that by the time the game is done, whoever takes his place won't have time to get out there and get the votes.
