Like son like father. Mitt is doing exactly what George Romney did to derail the nomination at the convention of Barry Goldwater. Mitt Romney is doing to Donald Trump what the Establishment beckons. Looking for a brokered convention. This is not the first time a brokered convention was worked by them. Pat Buchanan in an uncanny prediction of possible events back this December gives us a great lesson in how the establishment breeches no less than Moby Dick whenever they fear their loss of control. They fear it now.
“Buchanan, if you ever hear of a group getting together to stop X, be sure to put your money on X.”
George Romney (Mitt’s Father) says “Nominating Goldwater is suicidal destruction”
Pat Buchanan: Will Elites Blow Up the GOP? December14, 2015
A portion of the notes from the video:
….Rocky was cooked. But then the panicked Republican governors gathered in Cleveland — Rockefeller, George Romney of Michigan, William Scranton of Pennsylvania — to plot a path to deny Goldwater the nomination he and his conservative insurgents had won.
Sen. Barry Goldwater had just defeated Gov. Nelson Rockefeller in the final and decisive winner-take-all primary in California.
As the story is told, Stu Spencer, Rocky’s man in California, had come to his candidate and said, “Governor, I think it’s time to call in the Eastern establishment.”
To which Rocky replied, “You’re looking at it, buddy. I’m all that’s left!” The governors, and Goldwater himself, suspected Nixon was pushing Romney onto the tracks to derail his bandwagon. And, presumably, after Romney had been run over, the convention, to heal the bleeding wound, would turn to a centrist compromise candidate — Nixon.
“Nixon is sounding more and more like Harold Stassen every day,” said Goldwater. Nixon pivoted swiftly to repair the damage, offered to introduce Goldwater to the convention, did so in a brilliant speech, then campaigned harder for Mr. Conservative than did Barry himself.
