Have you observed that Mitt Romney has began to make a lot of waves over the past week or so? There is information that indicate that if Marco Rubio does not win the state of Florida that Rubio will opt out and Romney will enter the race. When this occurs it would be difficult for Romney to build up the delegates that he would need to clinch the nomination before the convention, but if he could win big states such as New York, California and New Jersey, Romney could keep Trump from getting the delegates that he requires to acquire the nomination ahead of time. That would lead to a brokered convention, and such a situation would almost certainly indicate that Romney would come out as the nominee.
To begin with a lot of people dismissed these whispers about Romney, but currently that Romney has been brutally attacking Trump these accounts are being taken a lot more seriously.
Mitt Romney supplied a capturing broadside against Donald Trump on Thursday, laying into the Republican presidential front-runner with a crisper strike than any of the party’s 2016 candidates have made against the billionaire business mogul.
“Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Romney stated. “His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat.”
Romney stated that “dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark,” pointing to his “bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third-grade theatrics.”
There’s paradox in Romney’s speech: Just four years ago, he courted Trump’s endorsement — even after Trump had led the “birther” debate against President Barack Obama, suggesting that Obama release his birth certificate to prove he is an American citizen.
The astonishing attempt by Romney to take down the Republican front-runner comes in the course of a last-ditch rush among the party’s donors and loyalists to prevent Trump from capturing the nomination.
Even before Romney spoke, Trump kicked off an anti-Romney social media address late Wednesday night, publishing a Facebook video accusing the ex – Massachusetts governor of being soft on cornerstone conservative problems, which includes immigration and abortion.
Then he struck Romney on social media Thursday morning ahead of the speech.
The business mogul, who himself has modified positions on abortion, continued hitting Romney and the Republican establishment Thursday morning in a series of tweets.
“I have brought millions of people into the Republican Party, while the Dems are going down. Establishment wants to kill this movement!” Trump tweeted.

His strike on Trump was an combination of all of the assaults that other candidates and party members have made in recent weeks.
One of his top aides in the 2012 race, Katie Packer, is heading a super PAC that is initiating attack ads against Trump. Another super PAC and the hardline conservative Club for Growth are also airing ads critical of Trump.
It might be too late: Trump has already won 10 of the first 15 states to vote, and he has a clear lead nationally over Rubio and Cruz.
Romney cast the coming months’ elections as a critical moment in history, citing Ronald Reagan and stating that this nominating contest is “a time for choosing” — laying waste along the way to Reagan’s fabled “11th Commandment” that Republicans not speak ill of other Republicans.
