MITTENS, KRISTOL AND THE REST OF THE ESTABLISHMENT … GET OVER YOURSELVES, UNLESS YOU PLAN ON GIVING THE ELECTION TO HILLARY CLINTON.
According the the WAPO, Mitt Romney and Bill Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine, met to discuss a possible third party candidate run and Romney to run as an Independent in 2016. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Enough, you had your chance to present a viable candidate in the GOP primary and Trump was the last candidate standing. No one has been or continues to be more suspect of Donald Trump than I, he is not a conservative and his actions leave a lot to be desired. However, Trump won and its time to figure out how to make Donald Trump a viable candidate to take on Hillary Clinton.
A note to Mittens Romney, YOU LOST!!! In fact you lost a presidential race that should never have been lost to a weak, lying, pathetic president. GO AWAY! And for those like Bill Kristol who are trying to pass Romney off as a conservative, he isn’t and he wasn’t in 2012. Thus why Romney lost.
Do I believe it saying right this second, Trump you got my vote like so many have done. Nope. Do I think its time for Trump to tell me what positions he is going to take in taxes, minimum wage, the economy and foreign policy, you betcha. And I expect The Donald to hold up his end of the bargain. Hey Donald, you should recognize what I am saying .. Its called the Art of the Deal.
In spite of his insistence that he will not run, Mitt Romney is being courted this week by a leading conservative commentator to reconsider and jump into the volatile 2016 presidential race as an independent candidate.
William Kristol, the longtime editor of the Weekly Standard magazine and a leading voice on the right, met privately with the 2012 nominee on Thursday afternoon to discuss the possibility of launching an independent bid, potentially with Romney as its standard-bearer.
“He came pretty close to being elected president, so I thought he may consider doing it, especially since he has been very forthright in explaining why Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton should not be president of the United States,” Kristol said in a phone interview Friday, during which he confirmed that he and Romney had a “little meeting in Washington.”
But knowing Romney’s reluctance, Kristol told Romney that if he remains unwilling to run, many top conservatives would appreciate having the former Massachusetts governor’s support for an independent candidate, should Kristol and other right-leaning figures enlist a willing contender.
“Obviously, if there were to be an independent candidacy, Romney’s support would be very important,” Kristol said. “I wanted to get his wisdom on whether it was more or less doable than I thought.”
