HEY MITTENS … MAYBE YOU SHOULD HAVE TAKEN YOUR OWN ADVICE AGAINST OBAMA …
It is rather comical when the establishment GOP blames others for what they themselves have caused. Mitt Romney, the failed, gutless, Republican presidential candidate who lost to a weak and wounded Barack Obama in 2012 now wants to blame others for the rise of Donald Trump. REALLY? Who the hell would take advice or even listen to a guy who lost to Obama because he did not take the gloves off and attack him. Instead Romney put on the mittens. A note to Romney and the mushy middle of the GOP … you are responsible for OBAMA!!!
Sorry if I don’t take advice or scorn from a man who lost a presidential race to a wounded and defeatable Obama. Dude, you lost your race, now shut up and go away. You are just as much to blame for the rise of Trump as anyone. Quit your whining and support Trump, unless you want Hillary as president.
Mitt Romney laid into the large and rambunctious group of 2016 Republican candidates here on Saturday, arguing that they deserved a share of blame for the rise of Donald Trump.
During a question-and-answer session with CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer before around 250 Republican donors gathered here for the Romney-hosted Experts and Enthusiasts summit, the former Massachusetts governor said this year’s group of primary candidates misplayed their hand. By spending months attacking each other and ignoring Trump, he argued, they made a severe tactical error that allowed Trump — who Romney has criticized as a “con man” and a “fraud” — to escape unharmed.
“Their biggest failure was attacking each other and not the frontrunner,” Romney said. “Just politically, I thought that move was not right for them.”
Romney reserved particular scorn for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who Romney endorsed late in the primary process. The Texas senator, he pointed out, spent extensive time during the campaign praising Trump. He also said Ohio Gov. John Kasich had divided the anti-Trump vote by remaining in the race long after it had become clear he didn’t have a realistic pathway to the nomination — a message he said had relayed personally to the Ohio governor. And Romney chided Right to Rise, the $100 million-plus Jeb Bush super PAC that spent heavily to tear down Bush rivals other than Trump.
“I thought it was an extremely large mistake on their part,” he said of Right to Rise
