Then again, Romney’s already shown that he’s willing to go for broke on sabotage – whether anyone agreed with him or not. Imagine if he organized a massive “Never Trump” by Trump’s own administration? I wouldn’t trust many of them to maintain security and confidentiality, thereby easily undermining Trump whenever they chose to. Loyalty? There will be none by many of those folks. I easily see the chess game, I just don’t trust it at all.
Sending dissidents to Gitmo in large numbers, and stripping flag burners of citizenship (heck, I’d even go for stripping residency if my id ruled) is great comfort food for the id. But when people’s ids actually come out to play, watch out – whether it’s people in the street or politicians!
