An astute and very possible scenario...
"If you see Romney lose Michigan, I think there is just going to be a cry for another candidate who is not Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum," said Jennifer Duffy, a political analyst at the non-partisan Cook Political Report.
Only the innately feeble, cowardly and corrupt Republican Establishment is capable of losing the Oval Office this cycle, and they are moving at full speed to do it. The field of candidates is a joke. I do not include Ron Paul, because all aspects of the Political Class will do whatever it takes to keep him out of the race. The media blackout on his campaign is, perhaps, the most blatant political manipulation I have seen in my lifetime.
Paul's one chance: A brokered Convention, Sarah takes point and selects Paul as her VP.
Could they avoid implosion?
No, not even if Congress goes R.
But would we have a better chance with those two in the White House during implosion?
Yes. Say what you will about Sarah, but I think she is savvy enough as a political animal that if she were in office during implosion, her instincts would be to slash and burn most of what is unconstitutional, especially with Ron Paul in her ear. Most of the public will be clamoring for "stability", but implosion will severely limit what FedGov will be able to do. They'll be able to keep our foreign enemies at bay, but domestically, they simply won't have much ability to make the problems go away.
I think Sarah and Ron Paul would ride the front edge of that avalanche toward smaller and much more Constitutional government.
This discussion, at this time, is a Sparklie. Many stars would have to align for such a scenario to even be possible.
But read the story and we'll come back to this if warranted in a few weeks.
Here's the link.
