    Is that the phone I hear ringing?

    Mitt Romney is waking up to the fact that his highly negative, in some cases vicious, campaign against Newt and Rick will create problems down the road, should Mitt win the nomination.

    So Romney’s senior advisors are putting together an outreach strategy:

    Mitt Romney, mired in a frustrating slog toward the presidential nomination, has directed his top advisers to launch a multi-pronged effort to unite the Republican Party as the primaries draw to a close.

    While Romney’s public activities are geared almost entirely toward winning the nomination, his campaign is on a private mission aimed beyond spring. Senior aides and surrogates — hoping to seize a moment when even some unfriendly Republicans are beginning to see Romney as inevitable — have spent the past several weeks making calls and visits to conservative leaders and activists who have resisted Romney’s candidacy.

    In case you’re wondering.  No, I have not received a call.  I never do.

    I know exactly how Romney can unite the Republican party: Quit, or suspend his campaign and endorse a new candidate, preferably of the “next” generation of Conservative movement’s leaders, rather than also-rans.
    Sarah Palin
    Allen West
    Marco Rubio
    Scott Walker
    Paul Ryan
    Rand Paul
    Nikki Haley
    Brian Sandoval (hint, this guy could be, and is probably already, on Romney’s short list for V.P.)
    Susana Martinez

    I’m sure there at a few others that escape me at the moment.

    Romney & Co. spent months waterboarding the conservatives, it’s going to be real hard for conservatives to trust his friendly outreach, let alone show any enthusiasm for his candidacy if he should get the nod.

    If the campaign did call you, Professor, what would you say to them? What would the condition of your support be, if any?

        Hi Professor — What if Romney offered to endorse Newt and then do everything he can to help the American People restore our government to its Constitutional basis?

        That’s about the only thing Romney could do to begin to redeem himself in my eyes. And even then, I’d have to watch for a long, long time to see if he meant it.
