I can never tell if these cross-party endorsements are supposed to serve as an underhanded dig, designed to shy Republicans away from viable candidates, or if they’ve just become a form of trolling. This one, for example, is baffling, because Nancy Pelosi can only want Mitt Romney to run a third time in order to ensure a Hillary Clinton victory, but yet, she can’t possibly be daft enough to think that Republicans would see her ringing endorsement of Mitt Romney – yes, Mitt Romney – as some sort of clue that he’s the one Democrats most fear.
Either way, it’s creepy and I hope it never happens again. Because if they get together and somehow produce a hybrid child that is one half robot and one half melting skin creature, we’re truly all doomed.
Asked if Romney has any shot at defeating Hillary Clinton in 2016, Pelosi told The Hill, “No, no. I mean, he might be a nice person — no offense, no offense — [but] let’s save you time.”
A smiling Pelosi added, “Let me put it this way — I hope he’s their nominee.”
Romney, who ran unsuccessfully in the 2008 Republican primary before being defeated handily by President Obama in 2012, is now weighing a third shot at the White House in 2016. The former Massachusetts governor has been calling donors to size up support he retains after two failed bids.
I think the party will take her advice to heart, personally. Which is, of course, everyone’s greatest fear. I might not believe that Mitt is really serious about hitting the bricks a third time, but you never know how easily someone could be convinced when enticed with an endless supply of Diet Coke and a free trip to Cleveland.
