Not looking good for Captain Underoos

We can't know if KellyAnne is speaking for the God-Emperor Ascendant or not, but one would tend to imagine that she is, at the very least, speaking with his approval:
Appointing Mitt Romney as secretary of state would be viewed by many supporters of President-elect Donald Trump as a major betrayal, former Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway told CNN on Sunday.

“It’s just breathtaking in scope and intensity,” Conway said of the opposition to Romney among Trump supporters.

“Receiving deluge of social media & private comms re: Romney Some Trump loyalists warn against Romney as sec of state,” Conway wrote on Twitter on Thursday, linking to a POLITICO article about opposition to Romney.

“I felt compelled to come forward on behalf of the people who were weighing in,” Conway said of that tweet.

Speaking to correspondent Dana Bash on "State of the Union," Conway went on to say that she, too, had personal concerns with Romney getting the job of top diplomat, and she even took shots at Romney’s run for president in 2012.

“You know, Gov. Romney ran for the same office four years ago and lost spectacularly,” she said. “Mitt Romney lost Michigan by 10 points; Donald Trump just won it. Gov. Romney in the last four years, I mean, has he been around the globe doing something on behalf of the United States of which we’re unaware? Did he go and intervene in Syria, where they’re having a massive humanitarian crisis?” Conway asked. “Has he been helpful to Mr. Netanyahu?”
At this point, I would not expect either Guiliani or Romney to be Secretary of State. They don't require vetting, so if they were going to be named, they already would have been named.

KellyAnne is hilarious. She followed up that shot with a Frum-slapping chaser:
David Frum @davidfrum
Trump won according to the rules, but if I were his team, I'd go ixnay on "the people have spoken" bit. Reality is just the reverse

 Kellyanne Conway ‏@KellyannePolls
Thx for advice @davidfrum.  Just saw vid of you on CBC Election night saying Trump trying to win "solidly Dem" Michigan was "delusional."

Trump sure knows how to work the drama doesn't he?

Blogger HanSolo November 27, 2016 2:37 PM  

I think he'll pick someone good in the end and this is all to create drama so that in the end people will be happy with his choice. Trump is a master of doing push-pull (pick-up/game tactics) with both his base and the media. By meeting with Romney he's basically pushing his base away and making them nervous, kind of like he's letting an "other woman" flirt with him and make his woman jealous and he can win over the moderates, conservatives and even the press a little in looking magnanimous and like he's healing. Also, by allowing the hawkish Giuliani and Bolton names float it scares his base a little in making them think he might abandon his avoid-foolish-foreign-wars campaign position but makes the hawks think he's being open minded.

Assuming that in the end he picks a loyal, very competent and not-too-hawkish secretary of state then think of how relieved his base will feel and everyone will be talking about how he made a good choice and the #nevertrumps will have been wooed a little to his side without him having given up anything.

I'm not worried. I think Trump knows what he's doing, even if sometimes it seems like he doesn't. Of course, if he picks Romney or Bolton then I'll eat my words.

Along with the other things I said, it could be Trump punishing Romney by having his name out there which then causes Gingrich, Huckabee and many others to strongly criticize Romney. And maybe somewhat contradictory, it wouldn't surprise me if Trump would like to use Romney for something else (reform the VA for example), either now or down the road, and Trump believes so much in himself that he's willing to use people that he has fought with if it helps him achieve what he wants.

Trump's plan seems obvious. Look at the late & former Michigan Governor George Romney. After his own campaign for president, he ended up in the cabinet for HUD (probably based on being governor during Detroit riots).

Same with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, and founder of RomneyCare for the State of Massachusetts. After Trump has aired the Romney name, everyone will be happy to see young Mitt saddled with "replacing" ObamaCare.

Off Trump's back and onto Romney's back.

I don't think the AltRight fully comprehends 2016 as really a battle between two branches of Judiaca, the Likudnik identitarian expansionists (Sheldon Adelson, ZOA) , and the liberal internationalists (Goldbergs, Frum). As Paul Gottfried put it: White nationalism is good for the jews. In any case, Trump is clearly the Likud messenger, a compromised front man, financially beholden to Wilbur Ross's Rothschild bailout, a demented sexual degenerate who shared a girlfriend, Maxwell, with pedo island mossad blackmail operator J Epstein.

The thing I think Romney brings to the table, even if just the kids table, is in the run-up to 2012 he was vetted deeply by every would-be ethics cop out there. He came away pretty squeaky. The dog on the vacation thing was just an example of how silly Anti-Roms had to get.

So, assuming you are going to be prosecuting pure evil and its 301c foundation, You might want to have a replacement example who is far from evil.

At least that was the only logical back-story I could imagine in throwing his name out there.

Anonymous Babydoc November 27, 2016 5:34 PM  

32 Whatever, Nate. Talk to your shrink about upping your antipsychotics, or at least switch to decaf.

Trump wants to drain the swamp. Romney made it clear what he thought of Trump during the campaign. And from what Conway is allegedly saying today, Romney isn't in the lead for consideration for SecState anymore, anyway.

It isn't time to be nice and smiley with the left. Romney was a cuck when he was MA gov, and a cuck when he ran in 2012. Sure, he has has a history of being a successful businessman. If Trump wants to build bridges with the GOP establishment through Romney, then let him find a business-related position, but not Sec State. Obama was the one stupid enough to put his political enemy in as SecState. How'd that work out for us?

Blogger Cail Corishev November 27, 2016 5:44 PM  

Why do people want to bring back a neo-con retread like Bolton?

1. Hoping to snooker Trump into hiring as many neo-cons as possible, so they can work to undermine his administration on behalf of their Invite-the-World, Invade-the-World credo. This might work with a standard Republican who would want his cabinet to please as many people as possible, including the media; but it's rather pointless with Trump. If he hires a guy, it will be because he thinks the guy will do the job Trump assigns him well, nothing more and nothing less.

2. To discourage Trump supporters. For more than a year now, they've been insisting we were wrong about him, he was sure to betray us or just let us down. Every time they "reported" that he was about to choose an establishment VP or cabinet member, or that something he supposedly said signaled a softening stance, it was meant to discourage us. Not much point in it now that we've voted, but it's the only play in their playbook, so they keep running it.

Blogger Scott6584 November 27, 2016 5:45 PM  

Romney almost single-handedly saved the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City from becoming a fiasco a few years ago. That required a lot of international coordination. He rode that success into being elected Governor of a deep blue Massachusetts and then the GOP nominee for President in 2012. Furthermore, he amassed a small fortune as a businessman prior to all of that.

I suspect that Trump is more interested in being an effective President than he is checking off loyalty boxes for the Alt-right. Of course, he needs to make sure that Romney won't go off the reservation if he gets a plumber job in the administration. Letting Romney hang in the wind of harsh disapproval from Trump supporters let's Romney know that even if selected, Trump will have a lot of support for firing him if he doesn't toe the line.

Also, making some effort at rapprochement with the GOPe is not necessarily a bad strategic move. After all, Trump still has to get his agenda through a Congress full of cuckservatives, and bringing someone like Romney aboard may ease their concerns.

I'm not advocating for Romney, and I would be very leary of giving him such a powerful post. But those who are saying there is NO JUSTIFICATION for even interviewing or considering Romney are being obtuse. He would not be in charge of immigration enforcement as SOS.

If you go back 35 years ago, Trump's main agenda has ALWAYS been fair trade agreements. The SOS would be the point man for international relations vis-a-vis negotiating a plethora of bilateral trade agreements AFTER ripping up Free Trade agreements. Trump is not anti-trade. He's just wanting to make sure that America gets a fair deal when engaging in trade. He could do worse than having a multi-millionaire businessman as his point man on those deals.

Anyway, this could explain why Trump is thinking the way he is. Trump has been 10 steps ahead of everyone for the last 18 months. I am inclined to give him the benefit of years doubt that he can control Romney if he chooses him as SOS. I wouldn't automatically view it as a betrayal. I am willing to admit that Trump is way ahead of me when it comes to political strategy. So, I am giving Trump wide latitude on his choices.

Blogger Scott6584 November 27, 2016 5:50 PM

That's true, but as I understand it, State runs the refugee resettlement programs and the visa programs at our embassies. That seems like a good reason to have a Sec. of State who's on board with the overall Trump immigration plan, and not one with warm-hearted ideas about saving the world's needy.

That's not a shot at any candidates supposedly up for consideration; just saying a candidate's record on immigration and playing global nanny is relevant.

It probably depends on the state. Back in 1988, I worked for the local Repugs. Both parties had groups of representatives show up at the county courthouse and we counted every absentee ballot. We opened every envelope, matched the name against the voter roll and the ballot was either counted or challenged. At the end we voted on the challenged ballots.

Bob, I voted for Romney in 2012. I was a Cruz suppprter early on. What pissed me off was the GOP cucks making such a big deal out of Trump needing to sign the loyalty pledge (when the cucks assumed Jeb! was going to be the nominee) then when Trump won the nomination, the cucks felt no need to show loyalty to Trump. We are in an existential fight against the left, and the pattern of "honorable losing" the GOPe kneejerks into every freaking time they run into leftist, anti-American opposition drives me insane. When dems spew about the need for "bipartisianship", the GOPe just bend over like the cucks they are, and give the left everything they want. Cruz at least starting supporting Trump in the last 6 weeks or so of the campaign, whether it was sincere or not. Please enlighten me if Romney ever did so.

I truly hope Trump drains the dammable swamp. He has managed to win the White House, so he must be smarter than I am. From my vantage point, I dunno if bringing in political enemies in the spirit of building bridges will result in a net postive outcome.

If you view the GOP establishment as a subsidiary of the democrat party it makes the political calculus so much easier to understand.
.
Ryan and McConnell are going to do everything that they can to advance the democrat's political agenda without actually registering as democrats (because they would lose their seniority).
.
Since Reid crossed the Rubicon with respect to the 60 vote threshold, and not allowing legislation to come to a vote, there is quite simply NO WAY BACK. The next time the democrats are in the majority they WILL USE IT. So the only question is are the Republicans going to fight to WIN or are they going to intentionally LOSE?
.
Romney is a capable guy but: “When you strike (at) a king you must kill him" - fuck him, he lost. Every cabinet position needs to be staffed by the most right-wing hard-ass that Trump can find. In a nation of 320 million I'm sure that we can find plenty of capable and experienced executives who can be trusted to execute the will of the people without "growing in office".
.
It may be necessary for Trump to cause a metaphorical "bloodbath" in the Republican party before they will help him execute the agenda of the American people.
.
SO BE IT...

It strikes me that there are two principles in play with the talk about appointing Romney as SecState.

1) Trump's signature negotiating method - start with the high ask, and negotiate down from there to what you really want;

2) Friends close, enemies closer.

Appointing Romney or someone like him is a fast way to co-opt and compromise the vast majority of the #NeverTrumper movement among the Establishment GOP. SecState is high STATUS, but if POTUS wants to, all diplomacy of consequence can be routed through the White House and the power of SecState reduced to a pitcher of warm spit. But the moment the #NeverTrumpers flip to #ProTrumper, they discredit themselves and will never again be able to credibly oppose Trump. And a high status, easily castrated office like SecState is just the kind of bait that the Establishment GOP types would jump at.

Romney was the most public face of the "Reasonable" #NeverTrumpers. The high ask. Had Trump's supporters had a "meh" reaction to Romney, Trump would've grabbed the win and run. As is, he'll probably now negotiate down a step or two. Maybe end at Mitch McConnell.

Once a significant portion of former #NeverTrumpers are co-opted and compromised, they are useful weapons to tear down their own previous positions. Sending the likes of George Will and Jonah Goldberg against the David Frums and WaPo "Its all the Ruskies!" voices is far more "credible" than sending a long-term #ProTrumper like Kellyanne Conway. People who were "allies" just eight weeks ago tearing at each other radically discredits the remnants of #NeverTrumpism and the related "The Russians are Coming!" proto-panic the MSM is trying to beat into being with war drums as we speak.

And in response to @42 Napoleon 12 pdr, if anything, SecState is LESS dangerous than Treasury. The control levers for the financial status quo Trump has proclaimed to be his main target all run through Treasury and related organs like the Fed and SEC, not Foggy Bottom. State can easily be made inconsequential very quickly.

So right after we won all the dreamers were like "oh yaaa it'll be so cool when the never trumpers come back on our team yaaa"

The biggest mistake Donald has made in 18 months is letting the traitor Jew emulator (((mor_0n))) named mitt Romney anywhere near his camp. I don't think these east coasters understand how fucked this cabal is out west. (((Mormons))) cucked the intel depts and flooded them with their pet Mexis out here...

Fuck you all. Go back to the purple sage.
