Mitt Romney voting for Ted Cruz is like Captain of Titanic changing the dinner menu


Does it really matter what Mitt Romney does from here on out?
  I don’t think he has any credibility left in politics as well as losing all his dignity.  It’s really a sad thing to see how much this man has destroyed himself in the eyes of millions.  Yes, he lost his presidential run against Barack Obama in 2012.  But, he walked away from it with grace and as a gentlemen.  All that is totally ripped away by his own hand.   

Politico reports Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee, will be caucusing for Ted Cruz in Utah next week.
The former Massachusetts governor said he believes no one will win the nomination outright by accruing the necessary 1,237 delegates, which would lead to multiple ballots at a contested convention.

“At this stage, the only way we can reach an open convention is for Senator Cruz to be successful in as many of the remaining nominating elections as possible,” Romney said in a Facebook post.

The primary has whittled from a 17-person field to just front-runner Donald Trump, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Cruz. But the way Romney put it, the GOP primary is a battle between “Trumpism” and Republicanism. 

Trumpism, according to Romney, is about racism, misogyny, bigotry, xenophobia, vulgarity, threats and violence. “I am repulsed by each and every one of these,” he said.

Romney, who campaigned with Kasich earlier this week, delivered a scathing anti-Donald Trump speech this month in which he said, if it were possible, he would vote for Marco Rubio in Florida — the Florida senator later suspended his campaign after losing the state by double digits Tuesday to Trump — and Kasich in Ohio.
