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.

Former GOP Establishment Presidential Loser Mitt Romney Rips Donald Trump as a ‘Phony’ and a ‘Fraud’ … Hmm, Flashback, That’s Not What Romney Said Before When Praising Trump (VIDEO)
HMM … WHO IS THE PHONY AND FRAUD?
Really, who wants to hear anything from an individual who epitomizes exactly what is wrong with the republican party and why the GOP base is so pissed off at Republicans? Oh, did I mention that Mitt Romney was a presidential loser who was so gutless and wishy-washy that he could not find the spine or CO-JONES to defeat and completely defeatable Barack Obama? But that is not stopping Mittens Romney from taking to the podium to rip 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump. Amazing. Wasn’t it the establishment who was wanting Trump to say he would support the GOP presidential nominee and not run a third party challenge against the Republicans? Well look at the establishment cry-babies now. Please tell me these fools in the establishment GOP are thinking of having Romney enter the race to challenge Trump? Does the GOP party just not get it? The Republican base hates them!
Mittens Romney – the face of establishment GOP losing politics
A note to Romney … Dude, your time has come and gone and you blew it. No one needs any advice from a middle of the road, establishment Republican who lost to Barack Obama.
Mitt Romney on Thursday will slam GOP front-runner Donald Trump as “a phony” and “a fraud” who is “playing the American public for suckers” in a major speech on the 2016 race.
“His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” the 2012 GOP nominee plans to say at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City at 11:30 a.m. ET. Romney will argue that “a Trump nomination enables” Hillary Clinton to win in November.
“His domestic policies would lead to recession,” Romney will say about Trump. “His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.”
Hmm, well that is not what Romney has said in the past regarding the Donald when he was singing his praises. So you get to decide who the real phony and fraud is. Watch the video below where Romney has only ringing endorsements and praise for Donald Trump. So what has changed Mittens?
“It’s my honor, real honor, to endorse Mitt Romney,” Trump said, with Romney and his wife standing nearby. Calling Romney “tough” and “smart,” Trump said, “he’s not going to continue to allow bad things to happen to this country.”
Romney responded by praising Trump for “an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works and to create jobs” and for being “one of the few who has stood up to say China is cheating” in international trade.
WAKE THE HELL UP SOUTH CAROLINA, NEVADA AND THE REST OF THE GOP BASE …
We all knew, well I hope most us us knew, that Donald Trump was not a true Conservative, he just latched on the the discontent and the frustration with all politicians, especially those in Washington, DC and especially with many in the Republican party who were tired of being lied to. Make no mistake about it, the Republican party has betrayed its base, but not by Conservatives, but instead by the GOP establishment and those in leadership roles. Those like Ted Cruz draw the ire of the Republican sellouts and go along to get along GOP politicians. Much like Ronald Reagan did in the 1980′s.
So a note to Donald Trump, either you haven’t a clue to what you are talking about or you are a wolf in Democrats clothing. As it is hardly the Conservatives who have sold out the base. Because we all know that it was conservatives who have political campaign donations to Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Oh, oops, that was Donald Trump. We don’t need lectures from who sold out the Conservative cause when he was actively making donations to the other side.
Chris Christie & Carly Fiorina Quit 2016 Presidential Race After Poor Showing in New Hampshire Primary
AND THEN THERE WERE SIX FOR THE GOP …
Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have dropped out of the Republican presidential race after a very poor showing in the New Hampshire primaries. Fiorina finished 7th with 4% of the vote and Christie finished 6th with about 7.5% of the vote. Carly Fiorina had a short and meteoric rise as she performed strong at times during the debates, but it just never translated to a rise in the polls. With regards to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, to be honest, his run for the GOP presidential nomination was over before it began. Pundits pondered why Christie’s campaign never got traction and why even after he knee-capped establishment darling Marco Rubio showing him to be robitoc, Christie gained nada in the polls. Really, is it that hard to understand? With all due respect to Christie, his presidential run ended when he decided to hug Barack Obama during the president’s photo-op trip to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy and what looked like a date between Obama and Christie on the boardwalk at the Jersey shore. Sorry Chris, you were toast after that and no Republican was ever going to for get that image. We had said back in 2013 for Christie to not waste his time. I guess he should have listened.
Really Gov. Christie, did you ever thing the GOP base would ever forget these images?
Chris Christie dropped out of the race for president on Wednesday afternoon, two hours after a rival candidate quit.
Carly Fiorina, one of only two women in the U.S. presidential race, left her quixotic pursuit of the White House on Wednesday after a seventh-place New Hampshire primary finish in a field of eight candidates.
And Christie, the governor of New Jersey, soon followed suit after rumors of his campaign’s demise swirled all day.
Spokeswoman Samantha Smith confirmed the news to the Associated Press, saying that Christie broke the news of his decision to staff at his campaign headquarters in Morristown, New Jersey, late in the afternoon.
Christie is also calling donors and supporters to thank them for staying the course as his poll numbers gasped for air.
Before leaving the race Carly Fiorina blasted Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton and her minions for their reprehensible comments regarding feminism and threats of going to hell to women who dared not support Clinton.
Fiorina took one last shot at Democratic contender Hillary Clinton, kicking her while she was down after a stunning defeat in New Hampshire.
‘To young girls and women across the country, I say: do not let others define you,’ Fiorina wrote. ‘Do not listen to anyone who says you have to vote a certain way or for a certain candidate because you’re a woman. That is not feminism.’
THIS POLL SHOULD NOT SURPRISE ANYONE AFTER RUBIO’S TERRIBLE DEBATE PERFORMANCE ...
As reported by the Politico, a poll conducted by the Pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC shows Marco Rubio falling after his disastrous debate performance. Donald Trump still has a commanding first place lead; however, is a mad scramble. With just one day left before the New Hampshire primaries, it should be interesting how this plays out. This may just turn out to be the RINO primary.
An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.
The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.
The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.
Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.
Although, why any one would vote for Kasich is puzzling.
