"Is Mitt Romney running for president in 2016?"

According to Google Trends, that was the top search term about Mitt Romney and Donald Trump before Romney's speech this morning but after excerpts of his speech were released hours before.

The second most searched question was, "Why is Romney against Trump?"

According to NBC News, in his speech former presidential candidate Romney said about Trump, "His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill."

He then fired a barrage, attacking Trump's business success, intelligence, honesty, refusal to release tax returns, and morality.

According to the Politico, former presidential candidate John McCain also joined in the attack on Trump with a statement that began, “I share the concerns about Donald Trump that my friend and former Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, described in his speech today."

He added that Republican voters should "think long and hard about who they want to be our next Commander-in-Chief."

What do you think? Is Romney angling to be the presidential nominee if there's a brokered convention? Or is he just the establishment's choice to topple Trump so that another candidate can get the nomination?
