Mitt Romney is scheduled to give a big speech tomorrow about Donald Trump. I expect that it will be quite nasty and everyone else is thinking that as well. My question is: How is any of this supposed to hurt Mr. Trump? I can’t think of anyone who better exemplifies the failed Republican establishment. Romney is the very definition of an all-talk no action politician. Not only that, he changes positions like a runway model changes clothes at a fashion show. I realize that Trump is quite malleable himself, but it’s for that reason that I don’t see Romney as a very effective messenger. Actually, the whole thing reeks of actually being a stalking horse for a possible third party run.
I have never seen someone who was as desperate as Romney to become president. The only reason he didn’t run this cycle is because Jeb Bush bullied him out of the race. Just how big of a cuck do you have to be to get bossed around by the guac bowl merchant himself?
Donors who supported him last time refused to commit to his campaign. Key operatives were signing up with former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida. The Republican establishment that lifted Mr. Romney to the nomination in 2012 in the face of scrappy opposition had moved on…
Mr. Oberndorf wrote: “We are fortunate in Jeb Bush to have an extremely talented and able candidate who, I believe, has a far better prospect of winning a general election than Mitt. Moreover, Mitt has now run twice and has had his chance to be president. It is now time to cede the field to others.”…
Mr. Bush’s strategy, mainly behind the scenes, was smooth and effective, as he reached out to potential supporters, mixing wonky ideas with personal charm.
I seriously can’t think of anything that could possibly help Donald Trump more than a huge establishment failure like Romney coming out to trash him. He’s the personification of everything that’s wrong with modern politicians. Had he ran on his actual record and positions, there’s a great chance he would have beaten Obama soundly. Instead, he contorted himself into so many knots that he never stood a chance. Oh, and he stuck his foot directly into his mouth on about 1,345 different occasions. In hindsight, the following video would be one of those moments:
Keep on keeping on, Mitt.
