Will Romney Pay to Keep Bachmann, Santorum, and Paul Afloat?

Typically when you’re running for president, your aim is to get your opponents to drop out as soon as possible.  But in Mitt “I’m Also Unemployed” Romney’s case, he needs Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul to stick around to help him against Rick Perry.  They do this both by their Greek Chorus attacks on Perry and by draining far-right votes away from him in early contests.

We know that Mitt agreed to help Tim Pawlenty retire his campaign debt in exchange for an endorsement.  Given the loosey-goosey state of soft money allowed under Citizens United, Mitt can direct money to help Bachmann, Santorum, and Paul.  He can promise them jobs in his Administration, not to drop out, as you’d normally expect by promising someone State or Defense, but to stay in until he sticks a fork in Perry.

Mitt may have to support not only his campaign, but also selective opponents’.  This is his last shot at the nomination, and, if “it takes a village” to get him there, he won’t hesitate.

  1. Harris Jordan, Esquire says:

    Romney is the kind of guy who, when you look in his eyes, he looks back at you but does not see you. He looks past you to whatever stage he can jump up on and utter his voodoo economics.

    This man knows nothing of foreign policy except that he’d make friends with and hire the Taliban if he could get them to sell him their poppy flower crop at a good price for a Bain Capital newly acquired a pharmaceutical. When the crop is harvested, he’d fire them all and downsize.

    He sits atop his mountain of money and looks down at the poor masses. “What can I sell them now, he muses”.
