Regretful Mitt Romney should shut up, he didn’t back Ted Cruz

Mitt Romney lost in 2012 but maintains a delusion thought that he should be in the 2016 race. In fact, Romney said Wednesday at the U.S. Chamber Institute’s Legal Reform Summit about not running, “I get asked on a regular basis, boy, why aren’t you running this year. I ask myself that now and then, too.”

Really? Spoken like a true, arrogant, big government conservative.

Back in March, long after the race was over and John Kasich remained to syphon away support from Ted Cruz, Romney propped up the Ohio Governor: ““Unlike the other people running, he has a real track record,” Romney said of Kasich ahead of the Ohio primary. “He has the kind of record that you want in Washington…”

Kasich won Ohio and you know what, it still didn’t matter.

After Iowa and New Hampshire, the race became a two-person race and Romney refused to back the right horse. Where were you then?

During this new speech, Romney repeatedly referred to “politicians” as though he wasn’t one. He refuses to back Trump, but wants to appease the Washington establishment, even tweeting:


Be sure to head to the polls for GOP Senate, House and statehouses; they are essential to defend and advance constitutional conservatism.

Don’t be fooled. Romney’s effort to stop Trump came a little too late and his version of “constitutional conservatism” is progressivism or he would have backed Cruz.

“The only path that remains to nominate a Republican rather than Mr. Trump is to have an open convention. At this stage, the only way we can reach an open convention is for Senator Cruz to be successful in as many of the remaining nominating elections as possible,” Romney said in a statement posted to Facebook in March.

Romney also cut a robocall on behalf of Cruz, telling Utah voters: “This is the time for Republicans across the spectrum to unite behind Ted. He is the only Republican candidate who can defeat Donald Trump, and at this point, a vote for John Kasich is a vote for Donald Trump.”

Can you imagine that now?

An open convention, a mechanism for the GOP to give the nomination to anyone other than Trump….could have been “legal” but would have created even more chaos and division.

In fact, can’t we just assume that Romney’s remarks were nothing more than an effort to keep his own name in the RNC foray.

There still are articles fueling this nonsense. “In retrospect, it may be that Romney was the only candidate who could have stopped Trump,” says one Chicago Tribune post.

Romneycare, praising Obama’s foreign policy, being moderate to soft on social issues and refusing to reach out to evangelicals, yep…sounds like a winning ticket – for the Hillary Clinton campaign. (BTW, in July, Romney polled even with Clinton, read HERE)

I’m no Trump supporter and I disagree with Cruz on most issues, but the pro-Trump media circus, the backroom Breitbart protesters and the Kasich, Rubio stubbornness gave us Trump.

bald man put white in white house tshirt Romney rallyThat’s it.

Deal with it GOP.

Deal with it Gov. Romney.

When the wreckage clears, maybe then we put a party together which will stand for something. The socialists invaded the Democrats, the angry mobs are backing Trump, the pot regime are running the libertarians and Jill Stein is more interesting get the Green Party on arrest reports than ballots.

America’s political landscape is dystopian nightmare.

Back in January Jeb Bush  insisted, “[T]he idea that somehow we’re better off today than the day that Barack Obama was inaugurated president of the United States is totally an alternative universe.”

Yes and the response in that universe was to select a moderate, misogynistic, arrogant, spoiled reality television star to face off against a failed former Secretary of State who leaked her emails to the world’s worst hackers.

Gov. Romney, there is no place for you here. Senator Cruz had a track record against this nonsense which was a pleasant contrast to your progressive agenda and ideals.

Now step back, be quiet and watch the “show” you helped create.
