It's good to see someone with a better mainstream messaging system than the internet tell it how it is.
Even if Romney does manage to scrape together enough delegates for the majority needed to win the convention (assuming that Frothy or Newt aren't
already his Plan B, in the event that he can't win the nomination on his own), the chances of him going on to win the actual Presidency are slim, at
best. He has only won a few states by majority so far, and those majorities were Extremely close, except for a couple that were in his pocket to
begin with (in Virginia he was the only mainstream candidate, and Massachusetts, the state he was governor of). Obviously, since Romney doesn't even
have the solid backing of the GOP, he isn't kicking anyone out of the Oval Office.
As for where things go for Paul, that's less clear. Right now Paul is winning far more delegates than the Media is letting loose, with the media
using their Projection-jitsu style where ever they can. Plus many individual caucuses have been compromised due to the establishment outright
breaking the law, and their own rules, trying to rob Paul of delegates. However, Paul's campaign is still doing very well and plans to stay in to
the convention, despite what the media would have you believe. Though I haven't seen any updated delegate numbers out of their camp, I'd guess that
they're still holding Santorum and Gingrich below water.
Also, to address people claiming that Paul would never run third party to keep from hurting Rand, Paul has stated a couple times that he is
confident in his son, and his ability to do well within the GOP on his own. He made this especially clear when speculation first came out that he
would give in to Romney to get Rand the Vice-Presidency. Now, tell me, how likely is it that he would stop before a third party run just to let Rand
continue milling his prospects in the GOP, if he wouldn't sellout to Romney to get him the Vice-Presidency? Whether or not Paul will run
third party cannot be guessed at with absolute certainty. We will have to wait and see how things play out.
