Some Guy Named Mitt Romney Denounces Trump On Behalf Of A GOP That Hates Its Own Alleged Base

SALT LAKE CITY — Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, plans to deliver a sharp broadside against Donald Trump today, slamming the GOP’s leading candidate as pandemonium sweeps the Republican Party.

In a forceful, top-to-bottom indictment of Trump, Romney will call on fellow Republicans to reject the billionaire businessman’s candidacy in an election “that will have profound consequences for the Republican Party and more importantly, for the country.”


Romney, the latest GOP mannequin to lose the presidency, will be preaching to the converted with this diatribe.

No one listened to him before, nothing has changed.

It’s a great race in the states, I hope Canada can emulate this when the opportunity to dump PM Useful Idiot arrives.

Sadly our conservative party wants to become even more useless and unrepresentative of its base than Romney.

The Romney diatribe

  • the nation is upside down.

    • Has been for many years. It is government by the political class for the political class.

  • simus1

    RINO Mitt bestirs himself long enough to flog “the people’s choice”.

    Well, that is another floor at Goldman Sachs heard from.

  • Ron MacDonald

    Had the GOP spent the same amount of effort going after Obama as it has Trump the US would be much better off today.

    • The GOP is seriously clued out.

      • Clausewitz

        It’s no longer about GOP vs Democrats, it’s about Elite’s vs the Serfs.

        • G

          That sums it up perfectly.

      • john700

        They are, but if Trump were a Clinton plant, what would he do differently from what he is doing now?

        – make some good ideas look bad (illegal immigration, muslims) – check
        – destroy any other candidates with a chance to beat Hillary (Cruz, Rubio) – check
        – divide the party – check
        – offer the black vote to Hillary on a platter (the KKK thing, can anyone explain that?) – check

  • old_gent

    The Republicans are determined to lose again.

    • Well they will, but Trump will win.

      • Xavier

        Never underestimate the GOP’s appetite for treachery.

  • Ron MacDonald

    What are the odds Justin will go to bat for this asshole and his wife and son too?

  • Xavier

    Isn’t Romney the guy who alienated the Conservatives in ’12?

    • Norman_In_New_York

      Romney is a loser preaching to losers.

    • He didn’t exactly energize folk as I recall.

  • The Butterfly

    They are so clueless if they think this will change anything.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    Here, from the New York Post, are eight reasons why Trump will win the whole enchilada.

  • adam

    Here’s the bottom line. No, Trump isn’t really a Republican. He’s not a conservative. He wants to be president, and there are only two ways to get there, via they Democratic ticket and via the Republican one.

    He knew he couldn’t beat Hillary on the Democrat side. He looked at the Republican field, and realized that he could win there. The Washington Post had a story yesterday detailing how he’s been running the general election from day one.

    The Republican establishment is whining and moaning because Trump isn’t one of them, but the fact is that no Republican establishment candidate can win a presidential election in the US any more, given the demographics. We saw it with Romney, and with McCain.

    • Mal

      We’ll see.

    • John

      They can’t win an election by merely aping the Democrat’s ‘progressive’ agenda.

      Trump has dropped that whole tact by attacking the biggest sacred cow progressives have always worshiped; mass immigration both legal and illegal.

      That subject has galvanized Americans and drawn them to Trump.

    • DD_Austin

      What we saw with Romney, and with McCain is the “republicans” fixing the
      election with losers, the purpose of the republicans isn’t to win, it’s to keep
      anyone else from coming in from the outside and being a real oppostion.
      The “republicans” aren’t against the “democrats”, they are the “democrats”

      Switch also explains the pants pissing about Trump from “both sides”

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Assuming that both Romney and McCain were also real Republicans.

  • lgeubank

    That headline put the situation in a nutshell.

  • luna

    Trump has run a “say anything” campaign because even if he loses, he knows he’ll hand Hillary a victory.

    Trump has done more damage to Hillary’s opposition, then to Hillary. To be fair the primary should be focused within the party, but Trump has seriously damaged the republican party.

    I say this as an independent, by which I mean I vote for people, not parties.

    • TerryA

      You’re nuts.

      • luna

        Because I’m not a member of Trump’s cult of personality?

        • TerryA

          Because Trump hasn’t damaged the GOP, they did that to themselves and people are tired of the same old bullshit.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          luna, I have always appreciated your point of view but I don’t think you really understand what is going on with Trump.

          • luna

            Thanks, do you think you can help me see the light?

            By the way, if you mean I don’t understand Trump-mania your absolutely correct.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’m going to try but I need a few minutes to reason it out in words.
            It’s more of a feeling that I have difficulty articulating.
            And I am an extremely conceited writer.
            Give me some time, tonight.
            Maybe an hour.

          • luna

            Take your time.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Both parties fear him.

          • luna

            Actually for Trump it’s not only a win-win because he either gets the office or helps Hillary. But even if he loses, he’s reinvigorating his brand, which John Oliver pointed out, Trump valued his brand at 3 billion dollars.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            I’m too busy arguing with my teen aged daughter right now.
            There’s no win right there right now.

          • luna

            Good luck with your daughter.

          • luna

            Not sure if this helps, but I found it entertaining.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Can Oliver be funny?

    • Clink9

      Trump is bringing in way more Republican voters than the last election.

      And he’s getting Dems to switch over. Can’t understand the math of someone winning and damaging the party.

      All politicians are scumbags, but Donnie’s the only one on the planet willing to at least say the right words on muzzles and border protection. If he doesn’t follow through, it will make the US civil war look like a picnic.

      • luna

        It’s true the Trump campaign is energizing lots of people. Nader (spoiler alert) also energized lots of people, with a series of large super rallies exceeding 10,000 in attendance. In October 2000 Nader had an audience of 15,000 (paying $20 each) at Madison square garden.

        Is it possible that Trump could be “saying the right words” out of ignorance? I highly dTrump knows anything about Islam. Ignorance is dangerous especially at the highest office.

        Trump and Cruz are both running negative campaigns, both are using fear to bring out a large numbers of voters.

        • Clink9

          Trump is saying what everyone is thinking. These guys have access to all kinds of polls so I really doubt he’s gotten this far by accident.

          They are suffering from years of Obama fatigue and Trump has tapped into that.

          Washington is a filthy pit of snakes and Donnie is pissing them ALL off. The US will not survive another same old, same old president. Just look at Europe.

          And if he doesn’t deliver? …… Invest in ammo companies.

  • The Butterfly

    Do the GOP elite not know that the internet exists? Do they not know that stuff like this is exactly why we hate them?

    • luna

      The problem with politicians isn’t that they flip flop, it’s that they live in the spot light & they are dishonest.

      When Obama ran he didn’t really have a record of accomplishments to scrutinize, and scrutinizing his background was of course racist.

  • Flyboy

    After cowering and giving Obama a pass in the 2012 campaign, Romney has nothing worth saying in 2016.

  • Xavier

    I have some concerns about every candidate, but there’s little point in alienating friends and trashing the blog like some other Conservative sites are doing. We can (or at least, should) respectfully disagree without descending to behaving like liberals.

    Unless you’re a troll. Then it’s on like Donkey Kong.
