A couple of Republican friends confess to their nightmare scenario: a collapse by both Mitt Romney and Pat McCrory.
 
Conservative Republicans have long worried that Romney might fail to stir the base. That turnout was key to the 2010 election and the gay-marriage amendment.
 
Now McCrory’s petty, panicked and petulant mishandling of the Tree.com ad has them doubly worried.
 
A Democrat who supports George Holding noted that, even in a heavily Republican district, he doesn’t want to contemplate what happens if the top of the ticket goes south.
 
That could put supposedly safe legislative seats within Democratic reach.
 
Stranger things have happened in politics.

When it became evident that Romney was going to be the GOP presidential nominee, I also had that same nightmare scenario. If you've followed any of the banter on the Forum here, Gary, you know that Mitt wasn't anyone's first choice. He wasn't even a second choice for many of we conservatives/libertarians...republicans.

I do believe that this year, how Mitt is seen and supported/not supported in NC will have an affect on the down ticket GOP candidates, including McCrory. I doubt this little Tree.com thingy is any kind of breaker for him, though. Too early in the game.

If Romney is seen by voters in North Carolina as "their choice", then republicans will probably remain in control of the legislature and McCrory will probably squeek out a win as Guv. If not, then that nightmare scenario might just come to pass.

Anything can happen in five months, but I don't see any reason to think the "collapse" scenario is anything other than wishful thinking on the part of leftists and Obama boot-lickers.
