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
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.”
Donald Trump Fires Back to Romney’s “Fraud” & “Phony” Comments … Trump Says Romney a Failed Candidate and in 2012, “I Could’ve said, ‘Mitt Drop to Your Knees’ and He Would’ve Dropped to his Knees.”
WOW, JUST HOW LOW AND VULGAR HAS THE GOP NOMINATION PROCESS BECOME?
In response to failed 2012 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s comments that were none too flattering to Donald Trump, the current 2016 Republican presidential front-runner fired back like only the Donald could and would. Earlier in the day Romney . Trump responded by saying that Mittens was a failed, irrelevant candidate from days gone by and that in 2012, Romney would have dropped to his knees, if Trump had asked him. WHAT!!! Just how low has presidential politics sunk with Donald Trump in the race? I mean really, Howard Stern might have run a less vulgar campaign. Trump is correct in that Mittens is a failed candidate who lost the the unlosable presidential race against a disastrous and failed Barack Obama in 2012. Romney was gutless and failed to bring the fight to Obama. Why, because Romney is a part of the GOP mushy middle and represents what is wrong with the Republican party and the elitist, entitled, establishment wing. But some how Romney, who was incapable of taking the mittens off and attack Obama, does so in going after Trump. Hmm, why do I smell a rat? That being said, Donald, did you really have to go there? REALLY?
Did we really need that imagery?
UPDATE: 3:20 p.m. Donald Trump responded Thursday to former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney ripping his campaign in a news conference by saying that Romney had been “begging” for his endorsement in the 2012 election.
Earlier in the day, Romney spoke in Utah of how disastrous Trump would be as commander-in-chief and criticized his approach to foreign policy. Trump responded to Romney at a campaign rally in Portland, Maine, calling the speech “irrelevant” and referencing his endorsement of the former Massachusetts governor in the last election.
“I could’ve said, ‘Mitt drop to your knees’ and he would’ve dropped to his knees,” Trump said. “He was begging. He was begging me.”
Trump added that Romney “did a big choke” in the election against President Barack Obama.
“Mitt is a failed candidate. He failed horribly. He failed badly,” Trump said. “That was a race that should have been won and I don’t know what happened to him. He disappeared.”
Trump continued talking about how he supported Romney in that election, telling the crowd that he raised money for Romney against the advice of others who feared he wouldn’t be able to win the election. Trump said there were so many people at the fundraiser that the carpet was “ruined.”
Failed 2012 Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney Attacks Trump … “Donald Trump is a Phony, a Fraud. His Promises are as Worthless as a Degree from Trump University. He’s Playing the American Public for Suckers”
SORRY, BUT I HARDLY THINK MITTENS ROMNEY HAS THE QUALIFICATIONS TO DECLARE WHO SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT BE PRESIDENT …
Let me first preface this by saying I am far from a Donald Trump supporter and no, I did not vote for him. That being said, who the hell is Mitt Romney to attack Donald Trump and interject himself into the 2016 GOP primaries? Romney represents what is wrong with the Republican party. Romney is a failed GOP presidential candidate who lost the 2012 presidential race and gave us 4 more years of Barack Obama. Sorry Mittens, your attack on Trump is as pathetic as your failed presidential run. In fact, by going after Trump you played right into his hands. As the WAPO reports, Mitt Romney did Donald Trump a BIG favor by attacking him. Yes he did. But this is yet just another perfect example of how the GOP establishment just doesn’t get it or how pissed off the American people are.
In his ripping of Trump, Romney said that if Trump’s economic plans “were ever implemented, the country would sink into prolonged recession.” Hmm really, he had nothing but praise for Trump here in 2012. What I also found rather smarmy and self-serving is that Mittens said he was not going to endorse any of the candidates and during his speech referenced voting for multiple candidates that would ultimately have the GOP primary end with no candidate having enough delegates and thus the nomination being brought to a brokered convention. So is this Romney and the GOP establishment’s end game?
In what may be an unprecedented speech by a major American political figure, former presidential nominee Mitt Romney implored his fellow Republicans on Thursday not to nominate the frontrunner Donald Trump for president.
“If we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished,” Romney said in a nationally televised speech at the University of Utah.
Romney’s speech comes as the Republican Party grapples with the distinct possibility that Trump will become the party’s nominee. While some Republicans have come around to Trump’s candidacy, a forceful Republican effort to take down Trump has failed to materialize.
Romney last-ditch bid to save his party from Trump started with tweets knocking Trump’s comments on the Ku Klux Klan and calling on him to release his tax returns.
His slashing speech Thursday was remarkable not simply for the unparalled specter of the party’s last nominee savaging its frontrunner but for the dire picture Romney painted of a Trump presidency and what it would do to the country.

Barack Obama & MSM Wrong Again on Russia: Obama to Romney During Presidential Debate … The Cold War Is Over
So who remembers this exchange between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney during the 2012 Presidential debates?
FLASHBACK … During the debate Obama mocked Romney in a condescending tone, that it was just a few months ago when Romney was asked was was the United States greatest Geo-political threat, Romney said Russia. Obama then responded with the wise-ass comment, “the 1980′s are now calling and asking for their foreign policy back”. Barack Obama stated that the Cold War was over between Russia and the United States. REALLY? The situation between Putin and Obama these days is little very Cold War’ish, isn’t it? Who wants to now admit that Romney was 100% correct and Obama is just a fool looking to just make ignorant, juvenile sound bytes? C’mon LIBS, we are all waiting for the apology.
Hmm, so I wonder what Obama has to say for himself now about Russia? As Obama and Putin are in a pissing contest over Russian planes bombing targets in Syria. Russia and Putin are vehemently defending the Syrian airstrikes and denies targeting U.S. backed rebels as Obama claims just the opposite.
How could a President be so wrong and ignorant on every issue and still get elected by We the People. There are many people to blame for this but ultimately the blame lays at the hands of the America people. Maybe you will pay the hell attention in 2016 before this country is ruined for all times.
