I no longer see a path forward for Marco Rubio. Or John Kasich, for that matter.

I do see one for Ted Cruz; in fact, a quite doable one.  But after tonight, he and Marco Rubio need to come to an agreement (one where Rubio makes the best deal that he can).  If they do not, then you should probably get used to the idea that political discussion on this website will be coming to an abrupt end. Because I don’t care if I’m the only person to actually goes through with this in the end: I will not vote for, or support, Donald Trump*.

PS: John Kasich has even less excuse to stick around. Michigan was a must-get state; he came in third.

    The only value Kasich has at this point is keeping Ohio away from Trump.

    I’m really hoping that Cruz can win Florida somehow.

      The way for Trump to be stopped is for Rubio and Kasich to get out. Now. Today. Not next Wednesday, today.

      If people in the GOP are actually serious about stopping Trump then they have to swallow a large chunk of their pride and wash it down with some crow and throw their support behind Cruz. Doing that will require that they demand Rubio and Kasich get out.

      That’s how I see it.

    At this point, Rubio’s last action before suspending his campaign should be to get under Donald’s skin on national TV one last time, then fall on his sword for the good of the Republic.

      Somehow your thought on one last run at Trump brings to mind the scene in Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels , where Brick Top beats some other hood to death with a dildo. As Idiocracy has become Reality , Why Not ?

      My indifference is vast, and deep.

        While this is your site, it’s worth noting that there is some difference of opinion here.
        .
        Yes, Gary Johnson is running.
        .
        While voting third-party doesn’t even have the chance that comes with a hail-mary play, it has the notable advantage of being something the media must report, unlike write-ins for Michael Rodent.
        .
        I don’t recommend it for someone in a Red State, mind, but .. if you’re in a State that’s clearly going blue, consider expressing displeasure with the way the GOP selected Trump (should it come to that) by voting Johnson.

    Let’s hope we see no more of the fundamental stupidity of Romney’s cri de GOPe paymasters’ coeur.

    Oh wait, fifty-plus of the billionaire technocracy flying off to meet with the GOPe privately? We’ve got to save our phony-baloney accounting schemes and, oh, how bout 10K more H1Bs?

    Never a Stinger around when you need one…

    As a Rubio supporter…it’s time.
    .
    Now, before Florida.
    .
    Look, I was under no illusion after Super Tuesday that Rubio would win the nomination at a brokered convention. I didn’t think he would. But I had serious hopes that he could throw his delegates to Cruz in exchange for the VP slot.
    .
    But that’s over. Governor Lardface McFatterson (NJ) seems basically to have ended his campaign with one brutally unfair swipe.*** Rubio could have, and should have, ended it at that moment by pointing out how often “everyone repeats themselves on the stump and at debates, Mr. Tough on Crime Prosecutor Who Was There for 9/11.” But he didn’t. And he’s paid the price. In politics, unfortunately, it’s not about what’s right or fair. It’s about what you can get people to believe.
    .
    Time for everybody who doesn’t like Trump to unite behind Cruz. Otherwise, conservatives of any stripe are done for the next four years, and potentially finished on the Supreme Court for decades to come.
    .
    *** Amazing how he then went on to endorse Mr. Make America Great Again, We Don’t Win Anymore, We’re Gonna Build a Big Beautiful Wall and Make Mexico Pay for It. Guess tiresome levels of repetition aren’t a problem for Christie, so long as he gets a chance to stand behind the Big Guy and play butler.

  • acat says:

    When .. when *did* you see a path forward for John Kasich?
    .
    I gave up on him when he couldn’t even manage to follow Gov. Walker’s right-to-work blueprint.
