Is Mitt Romney, Glen Beck, or Paul Ryan the biggest sore loser in the GOP primary?
Beck says God is punishing us. Romney is still sour on being rejected by the voters not only once but twice. Paul Ryan has dreams of being the white knight and now he's on the outside looking in and most likely to be primaried out of his job.
Glenn Beck. He has nothing to lose. And he's a bit weird. He is a combination of the religious conservative tinged with the fanaticism of a recovering addict. He's the only guy I heard that actually met Cruz and likes him. I hate to pile on Cruz. Probably not a bad guy but perception is reality.
Paul Ryan has to think about the Party long term. The next 6 months are going to be very destructive to the GOP message, and the burden will fall on Ryan, who is a stand up guy. Romney is close with many of the establishment figures of the Party and he's helping them out. But we're going to lose the Senate and barely hold onto the House. So Ryan is fighting for his job. Would you want to see your chance at Speaker over before it really started?
I look upon this as a chance for a fresh start. Hillary's Presidency is not going to go well. Her aversion to risk and uncomfortably in military matters will come back to haunt her. I also don't think she has a fundamental understanding of economics, despite her advisers. So we need to be ready to go by 2020.
Ralph, I give him 0% chance (I know, not a Trump guy). But here's why:
He will run into the same problem of every other GOP candidate - controlling the message. The media hates the right. Now Trump is their target.
Ralph, I would have to say that All Three are just losers. Now they want to take it out on someone, anyone. Most likely on someone that has done better than them, especially someone like Donald Trump.
Glen Beck - he's not the biggest loser, but he will lose his media empire, because he jumped the shark (Fonzie reference) with the cheeto dust on his face skit; and that's saying something for a guy who promised ground breaking revelations he never delivered. I don't hate him - I liked the detailed chalk diagrams showing the in and out rotation of non-profits to federal positions to businesses showing how all these various high players were related and interacting.
Romney - he lost in 2012, and he didn't seem big on being politically resurrected, so he really didn't lose anything
Paul Ryan - still speaker of the house, still influential unless loses his position in 2017 - you just get alienation between him and President Trump in 2017 if Ryan continues to follow party leaders versus the party base.
The Bushes - they lost and lost BIG this election, from Jeb being the presumptive nominee to essentially everyone they endorsed losing; Cruz lost points when he hired a Bush relative and several of Bush's staffers on his team.
The only person listed whom I would give any thought towards is Mitt Romney. Of the other two, one is a madman entertainment hack and the other is a yes-man political hack. I think Romney is truly jealous of Trump, because he understands him better than others being a Wall Street goon and all.

Mueller is continuing with his investigation. Will it touch Mike Pence @ some point? If there is reason for Trump to resign, will Mike Pence be caught up in the fray? Would Paul Ryan like to become the president?
