here we go…

divisive?

Romney on Trump:
wouldn’t it be interesting if Romney gave this speech while not impersonating a plank of wood?

“He’s playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat,”

His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University…

…Trump says he admires Vladimir Putin, while he has called George W. Bush a liar. That is a twisted example of evil trumping good….

Think that’s gonna work?

    Nope. If Romney had attacked obama like he’s attacking Trump, we’d be looking at his re-election and not a hillary/trump matchup. He can go fuck himself.

    The Robot with a hate Trump chip emplanted in his brain. Another looser repeating the same statments over and over and I have to admit I voted for him.

    The Establishment is totally aware that they have been acting in their own interests, and are not in denial about what the base wants, knowing full well what we elected them to do. However, they are massively contemptuous of us outside the Beltway people, and continue to look after their self-interest instead of ours.

    They simply will not acknowledge that the rise of Trump is a manifestation of a big chunk of Republicans and some Dems giving DC the middle finger, and Tuesday they finally saw the rising tide.
    I hope they drown in it, whether it be Trump or Cruz who washes over them.

    Unless Rubio gets out now, I’m afraid it will be Trump, the loose cannon.
    Trump may be a good administrator and a strong leader, but I believe he’ll see leadership as doing everything his way by fiat.
    IOW, everything the Founders, fed up with kings and dictators, didn’t want the presidency to be.
    Fact is, we’ve already endured seven years of a really bad job (for America) of management by fiat. Even if Trump were to be beneficial and benevolent, what of the next in line? We must return to a rule of law, not of the whims of men, and IMHO, our Constitution is the place to start, or should I say, to return to. We need a Restoration.
    I’m not optimistic, what with a gargantuan, un-elected, entrenched bureaucracy selectively strangling some and doling out goodies to others, but a president who has a respect for the Constitution would be a good start.
    That would be Cruz.

    I love Romney. There, I said it.

    Knowing what I know about the Mormon church and his duties within it, I think he would have made a great president. The media pretty much destroyed a good good man.

    I’m all about character/qualification these days…we’ll never get a perfect candidate ( altho Cruz is close with regard to qualifications if lacking in likability…but I’m not voting for BFF )and until we stop insisting on one we’re going to continue to be disappointed. Pobody’s nerfect.

    Okay, I’ll take the high ground and not mention that Mitt got beat up by Candy Crowley.

    I will always dislike anybody who actually seeks that job,
    unless they want to pare it back to its constitutional scope.
    However, I’ll probably always vote for the lesser of two weevils.

    Okay, Romney was an acceptable candidate, but he didn’t close the deal.
    Next!

    Ooooh, McCain jumped on the pile, too!

    One might like this Trump guy a little, if only for turning over rocks and lettin’ us see what skitters out.

    At least Mittens attacked Trump from the right as well, which is richly deserved. Unfortunately, most of his attacks were from the left, or on scandals everyone already knows about and Trump fans apparently don’t care about. The latter attacks (plus McCain’s piling on) only serve to pour gasoline on the brush fire.

    Trump’s “response” was his standard stream of grade school playground insults and self-aggrandizing non sequiturs. No doubt his fans ate it up, as always.

    (4) Don’t feel bad Geezerette. Not only did I vote for Mitt, I raised Money for him.

    (9) Fawkes, I did not see any playground type taunts from Trump responding to Mitt, though I’m sure they happened.

    I DID see where Trump posted a video of him endorsing Mitt four years ago. Mitt seemed to be OK with him then. Huh. That’s odd.

    The media pretty much destroyed a good good man.

    I’d say it was his handlers — or his willingness to listen to his handlers — are highly to blame. Every time he talks publicly — *not about polytix* — he sounds like a great fella.

    When he *does* talk polytix, he sounds like a stiff, a badly-programmed robot, an alien among us.

    wtf?!?

    I will always dislike anybody who actually seeks that job,

    Agreed!!

    I had no problem voting for Mitt. He was a good man then and he is now. Problem was it was his election to lose and he did.
    Everything he said about Trump today is true. If anyone has a problem with the endorsement of Romney by Trump, IMO shit happens when you run for president.

    Yes, Mitt was one of the best qualified presidential candidates in recent memory. His track record speaks for itself. But if qualifications were all that mattered, John Kasich would win this race.

    (15) Dave, True about the whole Trump endorsing Romney 4 years ago thing, but then Mitt needs to shut his pie hole about Trump not rebuking David Duke (Even though he HAS in the past.) You can’t be held responsible for how your supporters live their lives. If Trump is as bad as Mitt said today, he should have shunned him 4 years ago. Bad form on Mitt.

  19. Fawkes News (Choose Cruz or Lose)
    Posted March 3, 2016 at 6:59 pm |

    ^ Sooooo… Mittens should be held responsible for repudiating Trump now, but failing to 4 years ago… but Trump should not be held responsible for pretending forgetting he didn’t know knew who David Duke was now, because he disavowed him 16 years ago?

    Non sequitur writ large.

    On the concern that Trump will be a dictator – Heck, he already has every democrat and republican adamantly opposed to his very candidacy. What possible chance might he have of actually enacting Trumpian Policies as Chief Executive?

    Think about this:

    If Trump makes it to the Oval Office, he will most likely (I’m guessing) have a blizzard of initiatives straight out of the gate. Whatever form they take will – of course – have to conform to established precedent. He’ll do the same thing every incoming president does which is begin to put his imprimatur on the federal bureaucracy. The most noticeable thing will be the dems no longer set the agenda – he will. One of the things that has been so frustrating these last few years is watching the gop react to the dems rather than proactively pushing the dems back on their heels. Trump, I believe, will effectively change that dynamic. Trump, by setting the agenda, will force more right/left debate out into the open rather than the GOP getting railroaded into uniparty assimilation [or face the moral opprobrium of our pretentious, leftist, moral 'superiors']. This is the one positive I have high hopes of seeing come to fruition – erasing the lopsidedness of the dem prez always blaming “the party of no”. Shrillary, too, is full of kind words for the gop, no? This says Trump is a middle-of-the-roader, not a true-blue conservative, but if we can’t get a Barry Goldwateresque “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice” then I’ll settle for this “loose cannon” that LOVES HIS COUNTRY.

    Bottom line is, he can’t be dictator and he may not be the greatest statesman but he has a lot of electoral political capital with which to begin governing. And no matter what, Trump at worst is better than Shrillary or Bernie at their best. If megalomania sets in it will be easier to impeach Trump than it was to elect him; bipartisan support will never be easier!

    ^ I will always dislike anybody who actually seeks that job,

    Barnhardt’s Axiom: “The fact that a given person is holding or seeking high-level public office is, in and of itself, proof that said person is morally and/or psychologically UNFIT to hold public office.”

    My own variation on the theme (which I came up with long before hearing of Ann Barnhardt: “Anyone actually wanting to run for public office should be disqualified for that reason.”

    Barack Obama is all but a dictator now with his pen and phone, even now as a Lame Duck. In the unlikely event he is elected, The Donald™ need only step into the oval office with the tested pen and phone at the ready. An even worse outcome would be The Donald™ loses in a landslide, and gives Shillary the Presidency, with pen, phone, and both houses of Congress at her disposal.

    Dictatorship? Not so much.

    Just watched the debate. Glad to learn that small hands doesn’t necessarily mean small… gloves.
    I mean, seriously??? A national debate broadcast around the world; and around this country parents had just told their children, “watch, this is representative government in action.” And then they hear… that!

    Can I ask why the unmitigated viseral hate for this man?? It’s not just a hate for even the imagined things he’s suppose to have done it’s a snarling teeth baring drooling hate for him. Why not for anyone else who has done even worse than him?? Why does everyone have this hate for what he’s accomplished in his life?? Which to tell the truth is much more than most who hate him. If those who don’t think he would make a good President and would prefer someone else who is more to their beliefs but this hate of him is far more serious than just a person who they think doesn’t qualify for the job. As far as I’m concerned this ground swell of hate for this man is gone way too far it has nothing to do anymore with whether he would make a good President or not. It’s turned even those who would be a better choice into people I don’t even recognize anymore. These people and their unreasonable hate for him must have an agenda of their own and I fear is isn’t what’s best for our country. I fear them more than I fear the possibility that he would be the next person to run for the Republican president. I saw none of this when President Obama was running and was elected twice.

    I wasn’t a Mitt fan, especially when he threw in the towel after the first debate. I still voted for him, because he was the candidate who actually loves America and would have been a decent CIC. I didn’t like how he shot his big guns at other republicans but used a water pistol against El Bobo.

    I’m definitely NOT a Trump fan. Rubio is too much an “open borders” guy. Cruz is my first pick, always has been.

    However, all three love America. I believe any one of them would turn the country in the right direction.
