    Sources told me that Mittens is under strong consideration for Secretary of State. Might be a good choice.

    Now, that would be interesting. But wasn't he the #neverTrump leader?

    I don't know about leader, but he certainly was #neverTrump.

    Are they just throwing names at a wall and see what one sticks.

    It's called a "trial balloon" and is a venerable Washington technique for gauging political reaction.

    Or they were unprepared and are just grasping at straws.

    I would have no problem with Romney as SoS. I'd view his nomination as a refreshing breath of fresh air and sanity.

    Wasn't Mittens the same Vietnam War draft-dodger who promised to send American troops back to Iraq if he was elected president?

    I'll pass.

    Trump needs to pull the Republican party together to gain consensus to govern effectively. This is a sane choice, in an otherwise bazaar time.

    I think there were a whole lot of #neverTrumps until they realized he was actually going to win.

    Look at Paul Ryan. That man deserves the butt kisser of the year award! :D

    I'm going with not true. Purposeful misinformation to find a leak.

    Good idea, but I don't think Romney would take it.

    He's at least establishment who can help control Trump so I'm ok with this. I think the best result for foreign policy with the Trump administration is to not be worse than Bush, and I think Romney could hit that.

    He'd be better than the rest of the inbred retards that have been floated around so far.

    That's not saying much, though.

    It would be in Donald's Trump (lack of) character to have his name thrown out there to embarrass Mitt.

    It was reported by NBC so I consider it very doubtful. Romney is visiting with Trump but so did mayor Bill de Blasio of NY. I guess Trump is considering de Blasio for a position in his cabinet also (maybe homeland security :) ).

    Based on that logic, Hillary Clinton is out of work so maybe Trump should hire her as Secretary of State :).

    Well, Mittens could simply change his motto to #NeverAllah

    And then Trump America will embargo Saudi oil, renew Iranian sanctions, keep arming Gulf nations to continue bombing Yemeni civilians, and continue with the inconsistent American policy in the Mid-East, where even our allies don't know they are our allies. But at least Muslim people are still killing each other en masse, and that's a good thing for Christian America!
