… has the unmitigated GALL to lecture the American people on the presumed and imminent danger of a Trump presidency? This, from a man who could not bring himself to recognize and warn against the very real danger to this country brought about by the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama?
Here’s part of what Mittens, aka Clown #1, shared with us:
Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. … 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. … 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. He cheers assaults on protestors …
Okay. How do you perceive that? Here’s what I hear:
To Romney and his ilk, We the People are “suckers”, but we’re too stupid to know it. Trump’s a “phony” and “fraud”, but we’re too stupid to recognize that, so we need Romney, our better, to point it out for us, to lead us to the right conclusions.
When Romney says that Trump’s purposes are “less-than-noble” in his approach to illegal immigration, to dealing with terrorism, or with handling “protestors” who try to shut down the free speech rights of those with whom they disagree, he’s telling us–who AGREE WITH TRUMP–that we, too, are “less than noble.” Romney, on the other hand, is noble so he will instruct and lead us peasants to the correct conclusion. It’s his duty, after all: Noblesse oblige.
Noblesse oblige is a French phrase literally meaning “nobility obliges”. It denotes the concept that nobility extends beyond mere entitlements and requires the person who holds such status to fulfill social responsibilities, particularly in leadership roles.
Do you hear him now?
You’re not listening to your betters, People! Listen up!
They just don’t get it yet, do they? They may NEVER get it.
Clown #2, John Kasich, foolishly tweeted,
in support of Romney’s tirade, thus virtually ensuring that his own candidacy will go down in flames. Advice for Kasich, from none other than Mother Goose:
It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt …
Clown #3, John McCain, piled on:
I share the concerns about Donald Trump that my friend and former Republican nominee, Mitt Romney, described in his speech today. I would also echo the many concerns about Mr. Trump’s uninformed and indeed dangerous statements on national security issues that have been raised by 65 Republican defense and foreign policy leaders. … I want Republican voters to pay close attention to what our party’s most respected and knowledgeable leaders and national security experts are saying about Mr. Trump, and to think long and hard about who they want to be our next commander-in-chief and leader of the free world.
Consider the irony. McCain adamantly refused to criticize his opponent, Barack Hussein Obama, in 2008. In fact, he harshly criticized those who dared to even use Obama’s actual middle name. When citizens expressed their heart-felt concerns, way back in 2008, about the potential and very real danger to this country of an Obama presidency, McCain said,
I have to tell you. Sen. Obama is a decent person and a person you don’t have to be scared of as president of the United States. … He’s a decent family man [and] citizen that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues and that’s what this campaign’s all about. …
Well, we were scared, we are scared, and we will remain scared until there’s a drastic change for the better in the direction of this country and its leadership. They didn’t listen to us in 2008 or in 2012. They still aren’t listening to us, so why in the name of God’s green earth should we listen to them now?
How times change. Now we suddenly have a candidate McCain and Romney do believe that we should fear. But, you may ask, isn’t Donald Trump also a “decent family man and citizen” with whom they just happen to have “disagreements … on fundamental issues?” Guess not.
When have you ever heard those two LOSERS, those two former Obama opponents, tear into Obama like they’re tearing into Trump? Do they truly care about the country or just their own power in the form of the Republican party?
Had either of them “grown some” in 2008 or 2012, then perhaps our country wouldn’t be in the horrific state that it’s in today. Ya think?
On the other hand, maybe the current state was the goal. Perhaps each man was chosen to lose. And lose they did. That possibility is exactly why We the People are not going to allow the likes of Romney or McCain dictate to us whom we should select as OUR nominee for president, especially if their goal is to ensure that our candidate, as in 2008 and 2012, DOES LOSE.
Do they fear Trump because he just may win and thus halt the globalists’ dream of fundamental transformation of the USA?
In the same article, McCain was quoted as saying he respects Obama and will be respectful of him as his opponent. Why a different policy for Trump?
Romney said, with regard to the nominating process:
if we make the right choices, America’s future will be even better than our past and better than our present. On the other hand, if we make improvident choices, the bright horizon I foresee will never materialize. Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.
Surely Romney and McCain believed in 2008 and again in 2012 that “we” made the “right choices” when somehow those two became successive nominees to oppose Obama. But those “right choices” did nothing to ensure that America would have a better and brighter future. Did they?
In fact, in the face of a clear threat by Obama to “fundamentally transform” this country into something our Founders would not recognize as their own country, McCain and then Romney did not and would not FIGHT to save our country by making use of even 10% of the amount of opposition research that is and was available with which to most assuredly defeat Obama.
No, Obama’s “fundamental transformation” has happened, thanks to those losers, and now they expect us to listen to their advice?!!!
Imagine if either of them had said,
if we Americans choose Barack Hussein Obama as our president, then the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.
That statement would have been true then, in 2008, as it was still true in 2012, and as it remains true today.
Every day, day by day, the prospects for a “safe and prosperous future” for this country are “greatly diminished” by the globalist, Marxist policies and programs of Barack Hussein Obama. Can anyone doubt it?
In his hissy fit, Romney warned that Trump doesn’t have
the temperament of a stable, thoughtful leader. His imagination must not be married to real power.
We’ve seen over the past 8 years what harm an unthoughtful man, with an unstable temperament and a dangerous imagination, can do to this country. Where was Romney to warn us against that threat in 2008? In 2012? Today?
Too little, too late, Mittens. You have ZERO credibility with We the People. Don’t you get that? ZERO.
Romney also said of Trump:
Think of Donald Trump’s personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics. … Now imagine your children and your grandchildren acting the way he does. Will you welcome that? Haven’t we seen before what happens when people in prominent positions fail the basic responsibility of honorable conduct? We have, and it always injures our families and our country. ..
Did Romney similarly criticize these “third grade theatrics?”
Of course not. But why not?
Ironically, Romney called for Trump to release his tax returns. Did he ever call upon Obama to release the myriad documents that We the People have asked for over these past 8 years? Again, no! Why not?
Here’s the most outrageous claim Romney made:
We have been blessed with great presidents, with giants among us. Men of character, integrity and selflessness have led our nation from its very beginning. None were perfect: each surely made mistakes. But in every case, they acted out of the desire to do what was right for America and for freedom.
No. No they did not. Most certainly not in the case of the most recent president–the person you, Mittens, should have defeated.
Nobody can truthfully or credibly argue that Obama has always “acted out of the desire to do what was right for America and for freedom.”
Freedom. Of all things! The nerve.
That clueless statement is more than enough reason to allow anyone to totally discount anything Romney has to say.
He doesn’t get it. He’ll never get it.
This most-excellent essay explains why people support Trump. Just an excerpt:
Donald Trump is the only Republican candidate who seems to have any inclination to act strictly in America’s interest. More importantly, he is the only Republican candidate who is willing to even address the problem. Trump was right to say that we need to stop letting more Muslims into the country or, at least, examine the issue. And like when he said the obvious about Iraq, the first people to condemn him and deny the obvious were conservatives. Somehow, being conservative now means denying the obvious and saying idiotic fantasies like “Islam is the religion of peace,” or “Our war is not with Islam.” Uh, sorry but no it is not, and yes it is. And if getting a president who at least understands that means voting for Trump, then I guess I am not a conservative.
… I really do not care that Donald Trump is vulgar, combative, and uncivil and I would encourage you not to care as well. I would love to have our political discourse be what it was even thirty years ago and something better than what it is today. But the fact is the Democratic Party is never going to return to that and there isn’t anything anyone can do about it. Over the last 15 years, I have watched the then-chairman of the DNC say the idea that President Bush knew about 9-11 and let it happen was a “serious position held by many people,” watched the vice president tell a black audience that Republicans would return them to slavery if they could, watched Harry Reid say Mitt Romney was a tax cheat without any reason to believe it was true, and seen an endless amount of appalling behavior on the part of the Democrats which is too long to list here and which I am sure you are aware. And now you tell me that I should reject Trump because he is uncivil and mean to his opponents? Is that some kind of a joke? This is not the time for civility or to worry about it in our candidates.
We’re not laughing at the clowns in the Republican circus. They don’t even know that they’re clowns, but they’re going to find out soon enough.
We the People will have the last laugh. Sooner or later. We will. We the People always do. Don’t they know that by now?
