Romney 10

Frankly I’m more than a little embarrassed to admit that I ever voted for this guy.  Going into the 2012 election season I must admit that I had some pretty high hopes, but then came that second debate with O-Bummer and it was then I realized that I was going to be forced to contend with yet another four years of Barry O-Bummer.  And despite knowing it was likely to be all for naught, and knowing that I really had no other choice, I did what I saw as being my duty and marched off to the polls that Election Day in November 2012 and marked my ballot for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

And it’s in looking back that I sometimes wonder if there might actually have been some sort of divine intervention involved in bringing about Romney’s sudden wilting toward the end of the campaign.  Because had candidate Romney been just a bit more like candidate Trump, that might have actually made a difference in the outcome.  But it matters not at this point, because he wasn’t, and it didn’t.  But was his loss something that was actually meant to be?  Because without that loss I have no doubt that we would not have as our president today, President Donald J. Trump.

So we have to take the good with the bad.  And I would go so far as to say that America, in some ways, might even be better off today because of the fact that Romney did lose.  Because, like I said, it has been since his loss that he has, over time, revealed more of his true self, and to be honest, I doubt America would have looked much different after four years of Romney than it did after four more years of O-Bummer.  And, like I said, had there been a President Romney, there would never have been a President Trump.  And America would be all the worse for it.

All of which brings to a recent poll, one released just this past Sunday and that was conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal.  A poll that, if we can believe it, showed how it is that Romney is viewed favorably by only 18% of Americans.  And it is according to this same poll that it has been since October of 2012 that Romney’s favorability rating has dropped from 43% to 18% in the same month of 2019. The 2012 election was Romney’s election to lose, all he had to do was to fight for it.  But instead he wilted, and came across as someone who didn’t seem to care if he won.

And it was also according to this very same poll that 2% of Americans actually view Romney “very positive” and 16% “somewhat positive.”  The other measurements included are “neutral” at 37%, “somewhat negative” with 19%, and “very negative” at 19% of respondents.  And it is in his ‘home’ state of Utah that, according to a survey taken by Utah Policy and Y2 Analytics in October, Romney has an approval rating of 46% and a disapproval rating of 51%,. The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Romney was elected into office by 62% of the vote in the 2018 midterm election.

I’m sure everyone knows that Romney has been a longtime critic of President Trump.  And that he has been more than a little vocal in his opposition toward the president.  He had, at one time, been hoping to gain a position inside the administration from which he would be better positioned to carry out his treachery.  But when that failed to materialize, like so many others who the president has chosen to reject, he did the next best thing and went search for another platform from which he would be better able to lob all manner of incendiary accusations in the direction of the president.

And it was recently that Romney expressed open opposition to the president’s decision to withdraw troops from Northern Syria.  Romney tweeted out last month, “The President’s decision to abandon our Kurd allies in the face of an assault by Turkey is a betrayal.” And he went on to say, “It says that America is an unreliable ally; it facilitates ISIS resurgence; and it presages another humanitarian disaster.”  The president responded by referring to Romney as a “pompous ass” who “never knew how to win.”  Which, if you ask me, is a description that is pretty much spot on!!

Look, Romney personifies all that is wrong with so many of those who, while they refer to themselves as being ‘conservative,’ the rest of us refer to as ‘RINOs.’ Romney is a liar, a fraud and a sore loser.  Essentially the ‘father’ of Obamacare who never backed off his support of an individual mandate while at the same time pretended to be a conservative. He was a one term governor of Massachusetts and polled so badly he dared not run for reelection.  He deserved to lose, even to O-Bummer.  Hopefully the people in Utah will come to recognize the error of their ways and correct it.

If Romney truly had any class he would have, after his ‘Pierre Delecto’ fiasco, chosen to resign his seat in the Senate and skulked off somewhere safely out of sight.  But that’s not how people like him generally operate.  So come 2024 it will left up to the good people of Utah to assist him in that regard by finally, and perhaps once and for all, retiring old Mitt from ‘public service.’  I’m sure CNN would be calling on him to be a regular guest much in the same manner that they routinely call on his fellow RINO, and Trump hater, John Kasich.  These two losers make quite the NeverTrumper pair!

The time has now come for Romney to put on his big boy pants and to finally decide, once and for all, if he’s going to join with the president and be part of the solution or join with the Democrats and simply continue to be part of what has been an ongoing problem.  Either he’s going to join in the effort to ‘Make America Great Again,’  or he’s going to join with the forces who continue to be nothing more than an impediment as the president tries to secure our border, and to make America stronger both economically and militarily.  It’s time for Romney to sh!t or get off the pot.


Romney 5

Mitt Romney, aka Willard, is the definition of what it means to be a loser.  Granted, he’s wealthy, and yes he was able to get himself elected to the U.S. Senate, and after doing so has proven himself to be more than a disappointment and on so many different levels. He has continued to work against this president, despite first having sought a position in the new administration but having to settle for a seat in the U.S. Senate, even receiving the president’s endorsement for the seat he now holds.  If he so dislikes this president, or disapproves of his agenda then perhaps he should simply become a Democrat.  President Trump was, and continues to be, right about Willard.

It was on Friday that Willard apparently felt the need to announce, though it was likely that few believed him, that he is not leading any sort of NeverTrump rebellion, or coup, against President Trump from within his party.  And that can likely be considered as true if for no other reason than Willard couldn’t lead his way out of a closet.  But he is one of the leading voices from within his party among those who agree with the Democrats that our duly elected president should be removed from office.  He likely remains embarrassed for having run one of the worst campaigns in American political history and for losing to a man he should have easily beaten.

It was in an interview with Politico that Willard, who has served as a frequent, and very vocal, critic of President Trump said, “I don’t believe I’m leading a wing of the party. Because there’s no wing that’s very large that is aligned with me.”  And he went on to say, “Since I’ve been back, I have not spoken with a single senator about the impeachment process or about the implications of the process that’s going on or how I would vote.” But Willard has frequently criticized and opposed President Trump’s legislative agenda since before he even took office. And even before being sworn in Willard took to the leftist Washington Post to slam President Trump.

Willard has on multiple occasions voted against President Trump’s national emergency declaration, which allows him to secure the southern border by re-appropriating defense funds.  And he delivered a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday afternoon, issuing a sharp rebuke of the president’s move to withdraw troops from northern Syria.  Willard said the president’s decision to withdraw from Syria and to allegedly abandon the Kurds, “will stand as a bloodstain in the annals of American history.” Further, Willard attacked the “administration,” of President Trump, for speaking “cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty.”

No Willard, you’re wrong again!  Because what will stand as a bloodstain on the history of the U.S. is the willful transferring of nearly all U.S. manufacturing jobs to China, for no other reason than for the sake of profit with little thought given to American workers. That had to have been one of the most irresponsible moves ever, the transferring of millions of manufacturing jobs to another country, and literally impoverishing millions American citizens.  And it would seem to be something that Willard was, and remains to this day, very much in favor of.  And yet Willard maintains that he and President Trump see “eye-to-eye” on most issues.

Willard has chosen his side, and nothing he can say can change that. As far as I’m concerned, he is now the enemy. That goes for anybody else who turns against this President.  One may not agree with every policy his administration puts forth, and I understand that.  But to virtue signal at the expense of our President or to create dissension against him is unacceptable and intolerable. This is a political cold-war and the progressives present is an existential threat to the liberty and freedoms that we have enjoyed. If the radical progressives are legitimized in this next election, the America that we have known will be forever lost.  We must not start down that path.

So yes, I believe Willard when says he’s not leading any effort from within his party to remove the president that I voted for, and will vote for again, come the next election regardless of the things said about him.  Willard is, after all, much more of a follower. He’s likely doing exactly what it is that he’s being told to by those much higher up the food chain, the ones actually running the show.  But it’s because of his current position that the claims he continues to make, however baseless and without proof, carry a certain amount of weight.  Which makes his actions all the more treacherous.  He still never misses an opportunity to attack this president.

And it was in following the example set by RINOs like John McCain and Jeff Flake, as they duped the voters of Arizona into believing they actually shared the same values as the people of Arizona, that Willard did the very same thing to the voters in Utah.  And thus they made a grievous error in judgment by trusting this man, this Willard, to be their Senator.  Willard is disgusting, and is beneath contempt. He is a liar and a fraud.  I can never forgive myself for ever voting for this man just a few years ago, when he and Paul Ryan claimed that would save America. If only I had known then what I know now, that both were then and remain today, traitors to my country.

Willard has never supported President Trump’s agenda, which is odd, because much of what the president has done and promised to do is exactly what Willard himself ran on back in 2012. But it’s today that I’m very confident in saying that Willard never intended to make good on anything that he promised, while President Trump has made good on much of what he promised.  Willard’s obsession with putting American troops into harm’s way make no sense.  And he has yet to offer any justification for doing so. It’s easy to criticize a President who has the duty of ordering the military into battle, especially since Willard will never have to do any of the bleeding.

And finally it’s in a weird sort of way we may actually owe old Willard a great debt of gratitude.  Because had Willard not simply melted into what was really little more than a puddle of goo back in 2012 and had chosen, instead, to be a bit more like candidate Trump regarding both the ‘fake news’ media as well as his opponent, he might well have ended up winning.  And had he won we would not now have Donald J. Trump as our president.  And maybe it’s that that forms the basis of his hatred of this president.  If Willard had won, we wouldn’t have been made to suffer through eight years of Barry’s devastation.  Willard’s legacy is Trump, and it as to be killing him.


RINOs 27

I gotta tell you I am way past being fed up with our pathetic cadre of RINO ‘shitbird’ Republicans in Democrat clothing who seem all too willing to join with Democrat scum in attacking the president.  Why don’t they just become Democrats and get it over with?  Now while nothing that Mitt Romney does or says really surprises me anymore, it’s his trusty sidekick from Iowa, Joni Ernst, that keeps making pretty clear that she too is little more than a fraud who was apparently able to get herself elected under false pretenses.  Both of these gutless wonders need to be removed from office at the earliest possible convenience, as neither of them seem to be quite up to the task.

You see, it’s Romney and his fellow RINO sidekick from there in ‘The Swamp’, who now seem determined to swallow the imbecilic drivel recently spewed by an obviously demented E. Jean Carroll’s who has now apparently claimed in her new book, that Donald Trump raped her 23 years ago.  And while many of his Republican colleagues have remained silent on the issue, or come out in support of the president, Romney has now claimed that the accusation now being made by Ms. Carroll, is a “serious” allegation.  Now most people would be able to see this woman for what she is, an obviously nutcase who is doing nothing more than trying to sell her book.

And let’s not forget that it was this same RINO stooge, Ernst, who also recently played a pretty significant role in causing Stephen Moore, who was an ideal pick for the Fed just a few months back, to withdraw his nomination.  That too involved events from 20+ years ago.  So it should be fairly obvious to even the most casual of observers that she is really nothing more than another faux conservative who has no business being in the position that she currently finds herself.  She obviously conned the good voters of Iowa into believe that she was something that she most definitely is not, and once she was safely elected it would seem her true colors rushed to the surface.

And it was Romney who, in trying to justify his most recent act of treachery, said, “It’s a very serious allegation.”   And it was from there that this moron went on to say, “I hope that it is fully evaluated. The President said it didn’t happen and I certainly hope that’s the case.”  Meanwhile it was the braindead Ernst who argued that this latest accuser should be interviewed and that “additional information” is needed.  She told CNN,“I think anybody that makes an accusation like that, they should come forward.”  And then added, “But obviously there has to be some additional information. They need to interview her. They need to visit with him.”

And apparently not wanting to be left out it was their fellow RINO John Thune who referred to Ms. Carroll’s allegation against the president as “unacceptable, deplorable behavior.” Thune also said because “the President is denying them, I can’t comment on, them because I don’t know what the truth is.”  Right, so it’s in Thune that we have yet another moron who doesn’t belong in the Senate as he seems far more interested in attacking our Republican president than in taking any kind of stand against that which is so very obviously a bunch of politically motivated bull shit!  These RINOs make me sick.  There’s not a backbone to be found among them!

On Monday, during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper regarding this most recent alleged wrong doing by Mr. Trump, the accuser, Ms. Carrol, drew criticism after she claimed that “most people think of rape as being sexy – think of the fantasies.”  Carroll also said, “The word rape carries so many sexual connotations.”  But apparently even bizarre comments such as these were not sufficient to convince folks like Romney and Ernst that she’s a bit of a nut.  Because, as always, what matters most is the fact that it is at Donald Trump that her idiotic accusations are aimed.  And nothing else is really needed by these pillars of American politics.

With Romney, I think, it’s always been little more than a case of jealousy.  He had his chance to be president and, to be honest, he blew it.  His allowed his inner wimp to take over and thus simply folded like a cheap suit.  Perhaps if he had been a bit more like Donald Trump he just might have one.  With Ernst, she managed to use her prior military service to get herself elected and has pretty much been little more than a disappointment ever since the day she arrived in the Senate.  While I would like to hope that the good folks of both Utah and Iowa would correct their errors the next time these two are up for re-election, I doubt that it will happen.

But I must say I am a little curious about where all of this new found ferocity might have been back when he was running against Barry ‘O’?  I mean if he had had just half of this fierceness back then, he might have seen fit to expose what were the endless attempts by Barry to destroy America and actually have won in a landslide.  But nope, instead he chose to simply wimp out.  Now all of a sudden he decides to prove he’s finally grown a pair by choosing to trash and slander the guy who endorsed him and had been his friend.  You lost Mitt, get over it.  Put your big boy pants on and do some good for the country. Trashing the president only makes you look petty and small.

And so just when you thought Romney, traitor to his party, constituents and our beloved Constitutional Republic, couldn’t possibly sink any lower, he outdoes himself!  Romney is as close to the moral equivalent of Hitlery that exists anywhere in the Republican Party.  He literally begged for Trump’s endorsement back in 2012 only to turn against him four years later as one of the president’s more vocal distractors.  Yet he was able to convince President Trump into giving him an endorsement so he could then get elected to the U.S. Senate.  And it has been since being elected that he has been doing everything he can think of to bring down President Trump.  What a guy.



I think there is very little doubt among most conservatives that when RINO Mitt Romney was elected Senator from Utah, it was ‘The Swamp’ that had managed to gain another member while we the American people hoping to gain someone who would actually represent them, lost.  And it was in pretty short order, politically speaking, that Romney proved that we could not have been more correct.  Romney left no doubt about whose side he is now on when he announced on Thursday that he intended to join many of his fellow RINOs in choosing to side with the Democrats in opposing President Trump’s national emergency declaration, using as the typical excuse that we always hear from these RINOS, and actually making the claim that his vote does not amount to a vote “against border security.”  Of course it does!!!

And in declaring his intentions that he would vote for a resolution that would nullify the president’s national emergency declaration, Romney released a statement in which he made very clear that he has absolutely no problem it all in making it more difficult to secure our southern border.  So the Senate passed the Democrat resolution today, and President Trump has said he will veto it. The House passed the bill in February.  Romney claimed, “This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core.” He said, “For the Executive Branch to override a law passed by Congress would make it the ultimate power rather than a balancing power.”  But he seems to ignore the fact that had members of Congress done what we elected them to do, there would have been no need for an emergency declaration.

Romney blathered on saying, “This is not a vote against border security. In fact, I agree that a physical barrier is urgently needed to help ease the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and the administration already has $4.5 billion available existing authority to fund a barrier–even without an emergency declaration.”  He said, “I am seriously concerned that overreach by the Executive Branch is an invitation to further expansion and future presidents. We experience a similar erosion of congressional authority with President Obama’s unilateral immigration orders– which I strenuously opposed. In the case before us now, where Congress has enacted specific policy, to consent to an emergency declaration would be both inconsistent with my beliefs and contrary to my oath to defend the Constitution.”

And so it was then that earlier today RINO Romney made good on his threat when he joined with 11 other Senate ‘Republicans’ in choosing to side with the ‘open borders’ Democrats in voting to bring to an end President Trump’s national emergency.  RINO Romney first signaled his position in January, before the president signed a bill ending a partial government shutdown that did not contain a requested $5.7 billion for border barriers.  The other 11 ‘Republicans’ voting with the Democrats were: Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Lamar Alexander, Jerry Moran, Pat Toomey, Rob Portman, Roger Wicker, Marco Rubio and Roy Blunt.  Now while neither Lee nor Paul are usually identified as being your typical RINOs, they are, this time, guilty by association, because all of the others are RINOs! Every single one of them.

These senators have claimed they oppose any form of executive overreach, it’s just rather frustrating that they have chosen to wait until we have a Republican president to express such opposition.  Where were they when ex-president Barry ‘O’s dreamed up his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) illegal alien amnesty.  Something that some activist federal district judge ruled, in August 2018, was illegal.  And it’s been more than a few lawyers who have argued that President Trump has the authority under the National Emergencies Act of 1976 to re-appropriate money to build the wall.  Romney’s announcement comes as a Morning Consult/Politico poll suggests that nearly three-quarters of Republican voters would more likely vote for a candidate if they backed President Trump’s national emergency on the border.

This was, most definitely a vote against border security. There is simply no other way to look at it. Let’s face it, if these individuals really wanted a secure border it would have been secured long ago.  Any Republican senator who votes against your security today does not deserve your vote whenever it is that they the come up for re-election.  And it was many of these very same RINOs who remained silent when Barry ‘O’ declared 13 national emergencies and when ‘Slick Willy’ Clinton declared no less than 17 national emergencies. I am ashamed and repulsed by the Republicans who are supporting Democrats in their rebuke of Trump.  Contrary to the assertions made by these pathetic turncoats, this was all about one thing, sticking it to President Trump. These people further the wide-spread perception that Republicans cannot be trusted.

In an interview earlier this week, President Trump said he found it “hard to believe” that any Republican would vote against his efforts to secure the border.  Personally, I too find it hard to believe that ANY Republican who claims to be serious about securing our southern border would chose to stand with the ‘open borders’ Democrats over this president.  And yet, 12 of them did.  But really, when it comes to this bunch of RINOs we now have in both houses of Congress, there is nothing that shocks me anymore.  And it was Rep. Mo Brooks who said in an exclusive interview with Breitbart that any constitutional concern over Trump’s emergency declaration amounts to “pure, unadulterated B.S.”  And I must say, it’s pretty hard to disagree with that assessment of things.  Kind of makes me wonder why I even bother to vote anymore!


kasich and romney

What is it about those who we, not so fondly, refer to as RINOs that makes them think that will eventually succeed in convincing those us who President Trump to turn on him?  I mean it was long ago that we came to recognize these RINOs as, quite literally, nothing but a pack of liars who are interested in nothing other than the pursuing of a political agenda that is so very obviously detrimental to our American way of life.  And they care very little that we oppose that which they wish to do.

And it was once again in demonstrating how it is that demented minds tend to think alike, that we had RINO ‘Crazy Uncle John’ Kasich giving soon-to-be-Senator, and fellow RINO, Mitt Romney a hardy pat on this back as he enthusiastically endorsed Romney’s half-baked, and rather self-serving, Washington Post op-ed bashing President Trump’s character.  Kasich tweeted out to his fellow RINO, “Welcome to the fray.” Fray?  Is that how Kasich describes what he’s part of?  What a loser!

Kasich has built quite a reputation for himself over the last couple of years as one of President Trump’s more vocal critics, accusing the president of causing all manner of political division here in the U.S. as well as criticizing the president over his efforts to combat illegal immigration.  And I’m sure that the animus he feels toward the president has much to do with the fact that he feels he could be doing a much better job as president.  Kasich has long been a legend in his own rather feeble mind.

Kasich has mentioned in the not so distant past that he is “very seriously” considering a run for president in 2020, although he has not specified whether he intends to run as an independent or instead to attempt to challenge President Trump for the Republican nomination. Romney, who has also openly criticized the president since the 2016 presidential election, wrote in his op-ed that Trump “has not risen to the mantle of the office.” At least he was able to make it into ‘the office.’

While the two-time failed presidential candidate did acknowledge that President Trump’s policies were in line with mainstream Republicans, he chose to criticize the president’s character and to accuse him of dividing the American people.  Which I felt was a rather odd critique to hear coming from someone who has a rather longstanding reputation for being little more than a political backstabber, which is far from being the most desirable of character traits that one can come to possess.

And regarding Romney’s recent op-ed, who actually thinks that that went to press without first being run by the party elites.  After all, it’s been since before he was even elected that the RINOS have been working in concert with the Democrats to see who it is that might be next in line to stick a shiv into the back of the president.  And yet we hear nothing from the likes of McConnell, Ryan, McCarthy or any of the other party bigshots!  Might that be because they’re waiting their turn with the shiv.

And let’s be honest here, the last thing we need, and I do mean the very last thing, is a third party.  What we are in desperate need of is a true second party, because that’s not what we have right now.  And that becomes increasingly evident as we continue to see scumbags like Romney, and Kasich, attacking the president from their own party with more fervor than they EVER attacked Barry ‘O’!  You really can’t help but wonder whose side it is that these sanctimonious scumbags are really on!

And whatever happened to doing what’s best for the country? If these RINOs could just bring themselves to actually support this president, imagine all that we could do.  I’m not saying everyone has to like each other, that’s never going to happen, just accept the fact that Trump is president so we can then focus on making this country a better place for all. Right now, it’s all hands on deck to destroy the sitting president and to Hell with the country, the economy, the troops and keeping Americans safe.

I’ve said from day one that Kasich simply didn’t have what it takes, and that fact remains to this day.  We needed a “back alley, get down in the mud fighter” to win. And when Kasich said that he wouldn’t get in the mud to fight for America, I dismissed him as being a viable candidate.  This guy is nothing more than a loser in search of the spotlight and he figures the best way to get there is to go after the president. I was not with Trump initially but came to see his style as what we needed.

And let’s, once and for all, put to rest the notion that neither Kasich nor Romney are relevant anywhere other than in their own rather twisted minds and have been on the wrong side of many issues for quite some time. NeverTrumper status does nothing to move this country in the right direction, and does nothing more than to provide the ‘fake news’ media with a steady stream of ‘Republicans’ who are willing, even eager, to attack our Republicans president. Here’s an idea, move on!  The rest of us have!

And perhaps Romney should spend a bit more time thinking about his own character, or lack thereof.  Here’s a guy who destroyed American families when he raped the companies they worked for, selling off the assets to line his own pockets and leaving families without jobs, insurance and pensions and getting rich in the process.  I’ll take President Trump any day of the week over thieves in the night like Romney, Kasich, Ryan, Flake or Corker, who care little for the American people and American workers.

Romney thinks he’s morally superior because Trump cheated on his wife. But let’s be honest, we knew who Trump was when we voted for him.  We didn’t elect a Pope! Jimmy Carter was a moral man and a weakling as a leader. Rudy Giuliani was a bit of a cad but he was a great mayor. And while ‘Slick Willy’ was a scumbag and a serial philanderer he wasn’t a terrible president. Trump may not be the model of morality, he has never claimed to be and doesn’t have to be to get good things accomplished.


<> on September 21, 2009 in Washington, DC.

Mitt Romney, the loser we put up against Barry in 2012 only to have him wilt under the pressure, is not exactly ruling out the possibility of him being willing to offer himself up as an alternative to Donald Trump later this year should we encounter a brokered convention.  It was during an appearance on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the Mitt-ster said, “I don’t think anyone in our party should say, ‘Oh no, even if the people of the party wanted me to be president, I would say no to it.’ No one is going to say that.”

However, there has been much speculation, of late, that Mr. Romney might be trying to set himself up for a surprise nomination ever since last week when he unleashed what was a rather brutal denouncement of front-runner Donald Trump, going so far as to urge voters to support anyone but the billionaire real estate mogul in upcoming primaries all in an effort to force a contested convention this summer in Cleveland, Ohio.  But might Romney be doing little more than to try to grease the skids for another run of his own?

And for those of you who might have missed it, Romney lambasted Mr. Trump as “a fraud, a phony” in a speech last Thursday.  And then on the Sunday talk show, Mr. Romney said he isn’t running and plans to endorse one of Mr. Trump’s three rivals — either Ted Cruz, John Kasich or Marco Rubio.  Romney went on to say, also on ‘Meet the Press’, that he believes his Thursday speech against Donald Trump hurt the 2016 front-runner after he split Saturday’s contests with Ted Cruz.  However, I think that’s pure speculation.

And Romney was pretty quick to take credit regarding the fact that Trump was only able to pick up two of the four state contests that were held this past weekend.  And it was again on “Meet the Press” that he said, “I think I had a big impact.”  And he went on to say, “I think a lot of people were surprised by how well Ted Cruz did. He got more delegates than Donald Trump last night. He was ebullient and enthusiastic, and Donald Trump was uncharacteristically low-energy last night. I think he was really surprised.”  Well, we see things as we choose to, I guess.

Trump won Kentucky and Louisiana, but came in second to Cruz in Kansas and Maine.  Trump had been endorsed by Maine’s governor and had been expected to win that state.  Cruz appears to be “emerging right now,” Romney said, but added he wouldn’t write off Rubio or Kasich just yet.  He said, “Marco Rubio is very strong in Florida. More recent polls have him within a few points of Donald Trump.”   And added, “And John Kasich [is] leading in Ohio. So they may be favorite-son candidates or they may emerge down the road being a very strong candidate on their own.”

Romney indicated he might endorse someone after the March 15 primaries, but said he would be satisfied with anyone in the field other than Trump, who he says is “not at all the real deal” when it comes to conservatism.  So I can only guess that Romney considered himself, when do many others didn’t, as being “the real deal” back on 2012?  The fact is that many of us who voted ‘FOR’ Romney were doing little more than to vote “AGAINST” Barry.  So for Romney to make such an idiotic accusation is nothing short of ludicrous.

“I can tell you this: I’m not a candidate. I’m not going to be a candidate. I am going to be endorsing one of the people who is running for president,” he said. “One of the four is going to be the Republican Party nominee. Three of the four are people I would endorse. But I’m not running and I’m not going to be running.”  Now if that’s true, then what’s the point of any of this?  And then he said that If Trump is the nominee, he will probably write in the name of a conservative on the November general election ballot.  Old Mitt, a real team player.

And in another interview that also aired this past Sunday, on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Romney said he would have spoken out sooner but didn’t expect Trump to do so well.  He said, “But he has tapped into an anger which is very much understood.”  Romney went on to say, “What he’s done with that anger, however, is not to build it and to resolve and high purpose, but instead to take it down a very dark alley.”  What’s really pissing me off here is that Romney has to know that he’s playing right into the hands of our leftist state-controlled media.

So what’s Mitt really up to here?  Is he simply trying to sabotage Trump, and if so what’s the real reason for it?  Is it so he can somehow be seen as some kind of knight riding in on a white horse in an effort to save us all from ourselves?  If so, I thought Barry had a big ego!  And that old Mitt actually thinks he would have a snowballs chance in Hell that we would ever pick as our nominee is completely insane. Personally, I’m thinking that Romney is simply jealous when it comes to the level of success that Trump continues to have.
