Is Romney criticizing Trump or campaigning for him?

I don't know about you, but I suspect Trump's numbers are going to go up in reaction to Romney's much-ballyhooed attack on him:
"Here's what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud," Romney said. "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat."
 
Romney lambasted Trump on foreign policy, casting him as "very, very not-smart" in his comments about allowing ISIS to take out Syria's leadership and for proposing the slaughter of the families of terrorists.

"Mr. Trump is directing our anger for less-than-noble purposes. He creates scapegoats in Muslims and Mexican immigrants. He calls for the use of torture. He calls for the killing of innocent children and family members of terrorists."
This strikes me as more than a little akin to throwing Brer Rabbit into the briar patch. What's he going to do next, accuse Trump of liking apple pie, marrying hot women, and wanting to keep America too American?

Mike Cernovich will no doubt note that by saying Trump "gets a free ride to the White House", Romney has made the mistake of assuming the sale.

Meanwhile the Mexicans are campaigning for Trump too, it seems:
In a televised interview late on Wednesday, Finance Minister Luis Videgaray categorically rejected the proposal.

"Under no circumstance will Mexico pay for the wall that Mr. Trump is proposing," he said. "Building a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea based on ignorance and has no foundation in the reality of North American integration."
Yes, I'm sure that will convince many Americans not to vote for Trump. If they keep this up, Trump is going to win in a landslide after promising to nuke Mexico City and deport all of the contributors to National Review. What are they going to do next, roll out George W. Bush to attack him?

Every time the mainstream media, Barack Obama, Pope Francis, the Chinese government, the Clintons, Vicente Fox, Miley Cyrus, Marco Rubio, etc. attack Trump, his popularity surges, so a new attack from a failed presidential candidate and Republican-In-Name-Only will only help Trump.

In fact, Trump’s national poll numbers may even explode past 50% as so many GOP voters hate Romney and didn’t vote for him in 2012.

no one will take Romney’s tirade against Trump seriously except for the panicking establishment and its lapdog media.

Romney had to have been promised a brokered convention now or another shot in 2020. I thought he was an okay guy. Not a good conservative but an okay person. Now he's just another Cuck. He sought Trump's endorsement when he ran. Now he's actively stumping for the Dems. Cuck doesn't begin to describe him. Iago maybe? His name needs to be associated with Quisling and as infamous.

I just received a letter from the Republican National Committee, wondering where I've been lately, since they haven't heard from me. Translation: "You haven't been sending us money anymore. Boo hoo. Boo hoo."

They said they needed my financial support to "Stop Hillary." I took the form, and wrote across it in big red letters. "Why would I send YOU money to attack MY candidate? I'm voting Trump!"

Yes, it cost me a stamp to send it back, but I want them to know why they've lost my support. And, it made my husband laugh is ass off (with approval), so it was cheap entertainment all around.

This election cycle has been very interesting, no doubt.

All the attacks by folks who have froe years said we had to suck it up and vote for the compromise candidate are showing their true colors. A bunch of swine. The more they attack the more they solidify support behind trump. They seem to think folks do not see his faults; folks do but they see he is the only candidate seemingly dealing with the important issues of the day.

I think Cruz did himself some damage when he went on the attack after super-Tuesday. In his speech he lied about Trump at least two times (obamacare support, anti-gun) and said that all the other candidates should drop out so he, Cruz could be the establishment candidate to deny trump the nomination. Downright creepy. Wife's comment was his speech made one think Trump showed good judgment went he said Cruz was nasty and a liar.

So oddly enough after that speech our votes went from Trump first Cruz second to Trump first , Carson second, Kasich third and Cruz 4th.

He even read a quote about every democracy eventually committing suicide, which was hilarious in being simultaneously weird and irrelevant for the moment, but entirely appropriate in the context of this election... against his side. This was a terrible clumsy blunder on the GOP establishment's part, sending out an unliked moderate who lost the last election even against Obama to claim Trump was such a threat that everyone had to band together.. and vote for no one specific, just anyone but him. It was like a simultaneous cry of desperation and an attempt to get the bully to hit you in front of the teacher so he'll get in trouble. Not even wrong, not even beta.

assuming the sale

Assuming the sale is a very effective closing technique. This time next year these anti-Trump-posers will be lining up for a chance to lick his boots and remain politically relevant.

My biggest fear of Trump in the White House is that he won't pursue the policies that he is campaigning on. My fear is that he will compromise. He's the only major candidate running that is even talking about doing some of the right things for America.

I've always wondered if the neocons really believed what they were selling: endless small wars, open borders, amnesty, unlimited free trade, and programs which benefit the elites. After reading their panicked articles over the last couple of weeks I've concluded that most actually believe it and realize that Trump represents a true threat to their near-monopoly of power over the GOP. I'm sure that some simply benefit from the arrangement with money and power with support, but it's true ideology for perhaps the majority of them.

The threats of the brokered convention and spending whatever it takes to defeat him are real, but they are just threats and they now have to pull it off. Given their track record of cowardliness and surrendering their future is in doubt.

If Trump wins the GOP will likely become a nationalistic and populist party and the neocons will have to try to find a place with the Democrats or disappear.

Oh forget the main point of my [post.

Romney was the chap who as head of Bain capital made a lot of money off of looting companies in trouble. Typically this involved a reorg and loading the companies up with debt prior to selling them to unsuspecting dupes. Of course the workers got screwed in most of these deals but Romney made out quite well.

Why would any pro Trump voter give a fellow who is clearly for the investment class over the worker or citizen of the USA any preference over a fellow who at least making signs of caring for the US middle class?

Whatever you think of him, you've got to admit that Trump's campaign has beautifully demonstrated one thing: the irrelevance of the mainstream media/republican establishment.

They thought they were smart and influential, but the unprecedented success of Trump* has shown two things: 1) these media "experts" don't know jack shit, and 2) the people don't give a shit about them and their hoity-toity opinions.

"Don't vote for Trump!"
...
"He's not a serious candidate! He's a clown!"
...
"He's not a true conservative!"
...
"You can't trust him!"
...
"He's a hatemonger!"

"Racist! Sexist! Homophobic! Nazi!"

I don't get this brokered convention talk. Surely the GOPe isn't foolish enough to believe somebody other than Trump can be the Presidential candidate. The only thing a brokered convention gets them is the ability to force Kasich or Rubio on his ticket. If they opt to put anybody else at the top they might as well concede the election to Hillary right then and there and save all the oligarchs their money.

The worst thing I have seen about Trump in the last couple weeks as an article Drudge linked that said the Koch brothers weren't planning on entering the fray against Trump. In the article however the Koch spokesmen said that they don't see any particularly effective method of attacking him so they consider it just a waste of money. Which means the libertarian globalist are a hell of a lot smarter than the neocons, because they know about the best thing Trump could have at convincing the Bernie Bros to vote for him is that Koch opposes him.

When Thomas Sowell tells me that Trump's ideas are bad, I believe him. But just as Scott Adams notes, Trump is bad in the 2D realm that Sowell is working in.

Romney? He's a good man, but he also lost. And one of the reasons that he lost was that he refused to fight, so the very people he needed wouldn't come out for him.


There's a scene in The Dark Knight Returns where I noticed that the depicted social commentators were actually trying to argue that Batman was somehow worse than the Joker. Their line of reasoning basically boiled down to the fact that Joker killed people, but Batman did much worse: he passed judgment on people.

This isn't a parallel situation. But for some reason, this makes me think of vigilante stories where the authorities try harder to stop the vigilante than they ever did to stop the criminals, and the cognitive dissonance that radiates through the stories. Trump is much more like a real vigilante would be - more like Rorschach than Batman - meaning he's a mixed bag of good and bad ideas. But despite the fact that I don't like him and don't want him to win, I can only feel embarrassed by how bad the strategic skills of the GOP leadership are.

To get Trump's supporters to abandon Trump, you need something that isn't being offered: someone whose opinion Trump's supporters respect. There are people who might fit this bill - Rush comes to mind - but none of the people they're dragging out do. How many of the people that are supporting Trump actually voted for Romney?

Well, Vox, some people are indeed suggesting that George W. Bush should be rolled out to attack Trump:

"It might even require the last two Republican standard-bearers, Mitt Romney and George W. Bush, to weigh in. This isn’t unreasonable to expect: Bush’s views on reaching out to Muslims, and on immigration and the danger of nativist appeals do not exactly square with Trump’s views. And Romney may have already begun."

"I’m angry at forced diversity and constant, frequently unjustified complaints about racism/sexism/homophobia/lack of trans rights. I’m particularly angry at social justice warriors and my main reason to vote Trump is to see the looks on your faces when he wins.
It’s not that I like Trump. It’s that I hate those who can’t stand him. I want them to suffer the shock of knowing all their torrents of blog posts and Tumblr bitch-fests and “I just can’t ...” and accusations of mansplaining didn’t actually matter. That they’re still losing. And that things are not getting better for them. They’re getting worse."

Pure. Comedy. Gold.

@23 - Why should Trump compromise, i.e. what is in it for him? He is getting older, and wants a legacy other than being just another corrupt crony. His family is doing fine.

Put another way, look at his hotels - would he "compromise" to turn any into a "Motel 6"?

Yes, (((Republicans)))

"William Kristol, editor of the conservative Weekly Standard magazine, said he would work actively to put forward an “independent Republican” ticket if Mr. Trump was the nominee, and floated Mr. Sasse as a recruit.

“That ticket would simply be a one-time, emergency adjustment to the unfortunate circumstance (if it happens) of a Trump nomination,” Mr. Kristol wrote in an email. It “would support other Republicans running for Congress and other offices, and would allow voters to correct the temporary mistake (if they make it) of nominating Trump.”

How nice of Kristol to look out for us.

(((Max Boot))), a foreign policy adviser to Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, said that if efforts to block Mr. Trump fell short, he would vote against a Republican nominee for the first time in his life. I would sooner vote for Josef Stalin than I would vote for Donald Trump,” said (((Mr. Boot))), who expressed optimism that Mr. Trump could still be defeated. He added: “There is no way in hell I would ever vote for him. I would far more readily support Hillary Clinton, or Bloomberg if he ran.”

For those who don't know who Boot is, he a Council on Foreign Relations member, who worked for Project for a New American Century. He's a NeoCohen's Neocohen.

"This isn't a parallel situation. But for some reason, this makes me think of vigilante stories where the authorities try harder to stop the vigilante than they ever did to stop the criminals, and the cognitive dissonance that radiates through the stories. Trump is much more like a real vigilante would be - more like Rorschach than Batman - meaning he's a mixed bag of good and bad ideas. But despite the fact that I don't like him and don't want him to win, I can only feel embarrassed by how bad the strategic skills of the GOP leadership are."

I hadn't thought about comparing Trump to a vigilante, but it actually makes some sense. If the police refuse to protect the population, then the people will turn to a vigilante who will. And the outrage of those in power is always more vociferous against the vigilante who presumes to threaten their exclusive right to power than it is to the criminals who threaten the people.

@90 Trump is an asshole when it comes to business. He welches on his subcontractors and doesn't pay them unless he needs them again for something or they sue them. He tries to get as much stuff done on spec as possible with the "You will make it up on the job" which usually never materializes. He licenses out his name without ensuring adequate safeguards are in place by his business partners. And his bombastic nature has gotten him into legal trouble over false advertising a few times. One of which being Trump University. And any honest account is that it is a bait-and-switch scheme, but it is unlikely that Trump will have found to done anything except perhaps lied in a commercial, because as with much of his empire, he isn't really in charge of it.

we are not talking about a moral man here. But then neither is anybody else, and at least Trump is saying the right things.

Blogger Scott6584 March 03, 2016 4:43 PM  

Trump hasn't locked anything up yet.

Of the 15 states that have voted, Trump has won 10, and lost 5. Yes, he has a lead, but it is not as commanding as it appears.

Trump has a delegate majority is 6 states. Cruz has a delegate majority in 1 state. The other 8 states didn't give a delegate a delegate majority to any candidate.

On the Delegate Count, it stands as follows:

319 - Trump
226 - Cruz
110 - Rubio
25 - Kasich
8 - Carson
4 - Bush
1 - Fiorina
1 - Huckabee
1 - Paul

While many correctly say that Trump has yet to reach a majority of the delegates, that can also be said about all of the other candidates.

The Anti-Establishment Candidates were Trump, Cruz, Carson, Fiorina, and Paul. Between them they have 555 delegates, while the Establishment candidates have only 140 candidates. But the 2 remaining Establishment candidates are still refusing to drop out. Incredibly, both Rubio and Kasich are still claiming that they are the one candidate who can beat Trump.

Those backing Cruz want Rubio and Kasich to drop out, so that there is a clear choice between Trump and Cruz. But the problem is that the Establishment (as evidenced by Mitt Romney's speed today) is still unwilling to accept the reality that the base has finally and fully rejected them. They still don't understand.

But even if Rubio and Kasich dropped out, and gave the voters a clear choice between two outsider candidates - the liberal Trump vs. the conservative Cruz, it is unclear who would benefit more from a clean two-man contest. The reality is that the Establishment candidates are much more liberal than Cruz, and the voters supporting Establishment candidates may prefer Trump over Cruz.

Even as a Cruz supporter, I have no idea how that would work out. Suppose 2/3rds of the voters for candidates other than Cruz support Cruz, while the other 1/3 support Trump. Then the delegate count would be 371 for Trump vs. 329 for Cruz. In other words, Trump still wins.

For Cruz to have a chance, he has to garner 80% of the non-Cruz, non-Trump vote just to tie Trump. I honestly don't see that happening. So, whole Trump still has a long way to go, i.e. he still needs 918 delegates, and only has a 93 delegate lead over Cruz, it is still a tall order for Cruz to overcome Trump and win even in a two man race. But the unwillingness of the Establishment holdovers to clear the field makes it even harder for Cruz to overcome Trump.

Bottom line: Trump is on a clear path to win the nomination.

This money was instead shunted to leadership within the University to advance their personal financial interests.

Whether or not Trump himself was involved personally is almost immaterial. You judge a man by the company he keeps, and these people clearly had his blessing.

@Scott "Bottom line: Trump is on a clear path to win the nomination."

As a Cruz supporter, the scenarios you laid out didn't consider what would happen if Trump didn't reach a majority and there actually was a brokered convention. The scenario would make Cruz the kingmaker instead of all the prognostications that the establishment candidate would prevail.

Cruz was treated badly from all around. He was never endorsed by other Senators including Sessions. The Republicans never wanted Cruz be a credible candidate to beat Trump so they hitched their wagon with loser Rubio and Jeb. Trump also badly damaged Cruz with conservative voters. Losing the south is a big blow to Cruz. Therefore, Cruz can decide to bow out and support Trump with the guarantee of either a VP slot or a Supreme Court appointment. Trump already made overtures to Cruz by talking nicely to him. In contrast, Trump directed his fire at Rubio.

We'll see how many delegates Cruz or Rubio acquire in March. Then the horse trading begins and we'll avoid a brokered convention.

I hope they roll put Bob Dole so he can renounce Trump




Dole has already stated that he prefers Trump to Cruz, because Cruz is "too conservative".

Ya know, I seem to remember back in 2012, how you and Paul Ryan got busted for voter fraud on election day, giving out free food in exchange for votes. That is a real big deal in the state of Wisconsin. Isn’t it lucky how the two of you somehow managed to completely avoid any charges at all? I wonder why that is? It wouldn’t have anything to do with then Waukesha County District Attorney Brad Schimel (a friend to Paul Ryan and Scott Walker), declining to file charges, would it? Why would Schimel do such a thing when, in Wisconsin, what you and Ryan did is considered a very serious thing. In fact, Democrats have gotten in a lot of trouble for doing the exact same thing. No conflict of interest here, right? Maybe it’s just a coincidence.

In 2002, Republicans went after Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Jim Doyle, for giving away free food for votes.

In 2006, the Executive Director of the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Rick Wiley, filed legal complaints against Democrat candidate Kathleen Vinehout for giving away hotdogs.

In 2011, the Wisconsin Republican Party once again went after a Democratic candidate for giving away free food.

In 2012, Republicans went after a Racine faith based group associated with the Democrat Party, for giving away food.

I find it incredibly amazing that only a few short months after Schimel refused to take up charges against the two of you, he is rewarded with Wisconsin’s favorite Attorney General JB Van Hollen suddenly announcing he won’t seek reelection, and then Schimel (who was previously busted for drunk driving) just as suddenly decides to seek the seat of Attorney General?

Incredibly, Schimel’s run for this open office was completely unopposed by any Republicans. There was no Republican primary. In Wisconsin, this is unheard of. Just a coincidence I suppose.

I suppose it is also a coincidence that, in exchange for coincidentally letting you and Super Boy off the hook for election violations, the money immediately starts pouring in to Schimel’s campaign account from some pretty high powered people, elected officials, candidates – and of course numerous people who just happen to work for Reince Priebus’s law firm, Michael Best and Friedrich?

By the way, you need to explain to Americans what is going on with this Mitt Romney Sex Tape that has exploded all over twitter with the hashtag #MittRomneySexTape If you are hiding something, you should just come out with it right now. Also, since you accused Mr. Trump of being a fraud and a con man, please explain to the American people how your campaign bilked donors out of millions of dollars, which you never refunded, but instead, you keep your failed 2012 campaign account alive, so that a company called Red Curve Solutions (a friend of yours) can continue to pay themselves for a campaign that no longer exists. It does not take FOUR YEARS to wind down a campaign. You are shameful. Your actions are fraudulent.

Romney? He's a good man


Why do people insist on this? I find Romney weak and pusillanimous and doubt a man of that sort I can be good. However he is obviously a Cuck which also precludes goodness.

I met Marco Rubio and he seemed nice.

I said "Hey Marco, did you just come here from a foam party?"

But no, he was just pleased to see me.

The globalist billionaires who own the Democratic Party and the globalist billionaires who own the GOP want the same things, for the most part. So there's very little difference between the two parties overall.

Blogger Escoffier March 03, 2016 6:44 PM  


the vigilante is a direct threat to cop's supposed monopoly of force AND he's predating the same prey ( nominally criminals, far too often normal citizens ) that the police do.


Do you have a cute for your assertion that vigilantes 'far too often' target non criminals?

Romney is an able administrator. But as a man that aspires to be POTUS his performance is pitiful just pitiful. It pains me to watch it.

Anonymous DavidKathome March 03, 2016 8:40 PM  

I am very skeptical of the charges against Trump University. The lawsuit by the New York attorney general was filed because Trump turned him down when he came by to ask for a handout.

As your statement was poorly worded it was easy to take other wrong way 'round. Also, I should think a reasonably intelligent person would realize I was posting from a phone which auto corrected the word cite. Apparently this excludes you from the candidate pool.

Romney proves that moderates that shoot at their own side are worse than scum. If he had the balls four years ago to talk about Obama that way, it might have at least been a horse race...

Anonymous Hoss March 03, 2016 11:05 PM  

I'm constantly amazed that the only time Republicans get any balls is when it's time to step to the mic and talk shit about other people on the right (or, supposedly on the right). God forbid they harnessed any hostility for the actual opposition. I've said it before, voting Republican is like committing Polish suicide.

i should think that a reasonably intelligent person would have taken note of the entire rest of my post ... and been able to draw the correct conclusion about the valence of my statement simply based on context.

the "other wrong way"? welp, never mind, that's certainly not a speeling [sic] error.

I tell my conservative friends, if the illegal invasion/immigration issue is not taken care of, nothing else will matter---free trade (who's going to work?), taxes (who's going to pay?), abortion (who's going to care?), corruption (they're used to it), etc. There will be nothing left to conserve.

Isn't Romney that guy who pretended, like McCain before him, to run against Obama?

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/12/mitt-romney-didnt-want-to-be-president-son-claims/

This guy, like McCain, turned the enthusiasm up to eleven and basically said "I think my opponent would make a Grrrrrreat! president!"

And I saw it the whole danged time. Tagg Romney's statement vindicated me. Romney, like McCain, did everything but put a Hope and Change Obama Symbol bumper sticker on his podium.

People said I was crazy. Then Tagg came out and said what I'd been saying the whole time.

The G.O.P. wing of the Democratic Party needs to go bye-bye.
