    Two has-beens wasting their and everyone else's time and money. This ain't goin' nowhere. Too bad, because Mitt showed class and talent in 2012 - but not enough gumption.

    yeah don't forget, william kristol is the guy who gave us sarah palin.

    the pundits who destroyed the party: kristol, lowry, limbaugh, and rove should all be set adrift in a lifeboat to hell.

    The funny part is the republican party establishment still doesn't get it.

    it took a while but the downscale bible thumping voters the Republicans used to manipulate into voting against their better interests have seen the light.

    The Republican Party is imploding. I hope the Repubs get their act together because the world would be less entertaining without them (especially the Tea Party folks). I simply cannot imagine a world without such intellectual giants as Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, et al.

    The republican establishment doesn't want to "get it" because they would have to face the music of reality that most American voters are thoroughly disgusted with crooked, entrenched, establishment politicians from both the republican and democratic parties. This is why both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have soared in popularity among Americans.

    And I can't imagine Hillary as president. This would guarantee it.

    Mark Cuban says he was recruited to run for president against Donald Trump, but he believes "it's too late" to enter the race.

    Mitt Romney ends recruiting efforts for an independent candidate

    Not surprising but still disappointing. I was hoping the GOP would come up with another candidate so that Sanders could run as an Independent as well.
