Mitt Romney: GOP Establishment Fail

DONALD TRUMP GAINS STRENGTH AFTER FORMER MASSACHUSETTS GOVERNOR LAUNCHES ATTACK Mitt Romney – hand-picked by the “Republican” establishment four years ago as the candidate most likely to defeat Barack Obama (oops) – has been blasting GOP frontrunner Donald Trump lately. “Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Romney said during…


Mitt Romney – hand-picked by the “Republican” establishment four years ago as the candidate most likely to defeat Barack Obama (oops) – has been blasting GOP frontrunner Donald Trump lately.

“Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud,” Romney said during a high-profile address last week. “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.”

“Dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark,” Romney added.

Tough talk, huh?

Of course it is …

It’s all part of the “Republican” party’s last-ditch effort to keep Trump from getting the GOP nomination.

As is his custom, Trump wasted little time in firing back – recalling how Romney prostrated himself to receive Trump’s endorsement in 2012.

“He was begging for my endorsement,” Trump said.  “I could have said, ‘Mitt, drop to your knees’ – he would have dropped to his knees.”

Ummm …

So, who won this clash of GOP titans?  Trump did … like a boss.

According to a new Morning Consult poll released this week, Romney’s speech “had very little effect on the GOP frontrunner.”  In fact, it appears as though Romney’s attack actually helped Trump.

The poll of more than 2,000 registered voters – conducted from March 4-6 – found that 31 percent of GOP respondents said they were more likely to vote for Trump following Romney’s speech, compared to 20 percent who said they were less likely and 43 percent who said Romney’s tirade had no impact on their thinking.

Yeah … that’s an “establishment fail” right there.

Romney also got badly bruised in the process, wilting under questioning about his prior support for Trump.

“Why’d you say nice things about him four years ago?” NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Romney on Meet The Press over the weekend.  “Why did you say so many nice things about his business career when clearly you’re not impressed?”

“You know, he’s made a lot of money for himself,” Romney responded.  “And I’m gracious enough in a setting where someone has endorsed me to point out that he’s been successful, made a lot of money.”

Todd pressed Romney further – but received nothing resembling a compelling explanation.

“You laid out a whole bunch of things that you thought disqualified Trump, not just his business background, you thought his support for terrorists could lead to a trade war, you were pretty critical of the vulgar language that he uses, the insulting of Muslims. But, you know, he was pretty insulting of Muslims four years ago,” Todd said.

Romney offered nothing in response other than to regurgitate his attacks …

Karl Rove made the GOP the Party of Stupid and gave it to George W. Bush. Trump has stolen it. Karma.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:26 am

Finally, people like me have a voice in politics thanks to Rove.

Roger March 8, 2016 at 6:45 pm

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:20 am

Morning Rocky.

Rocky Verdad March 9, 2016 at 8:24 am

Not me.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:24 am

Sure it is.

Rocky Verdad March 9, 2016 at 8:31 am

He speaks the truth.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:33 am

The truth is ugly, like me on the inside.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:34 am

Trump sure does.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:38 am

Blaming everything on brown people just like neo nazis.

I don’t know, will Kenny still make you take out the trash?

Didn’t mean to hit a nerve,bro…LMAO!!!

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:44 am

The only people who get on my nerves are minorities. You’re a racist too, guys like us have to stick together in today’s society.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:25 am

Rocky’s not racist enough to wear the hood like me.

Andy March 9, 2016 at 7:21 am

Romney, the Ruling class, Establishment, of both parties can ALL go to the Devil! We are FED UP with all of you!
ALL you have given is is a FAILELD Government, a Country in DECLINE, POROUS BORDERS and a DISMAL AND QUESTIONABLE Future!

Bible Thumper March 8, 2016 at 7:04 pm

Polling on the questions suggesting that Romney’s had the opposite effect and actually helped Trump are notoriously wrong. There is plenty of evidence that advertising effects peoples buying decisions positively, but when poled they will claim the opposite.

People want to answer poll questions in a way that is socially approved. They don’t want to admit that others have influence over them. Endorsements are always underrated by polls.

Trump will probably do well tonight because of the open primaries, but not as well on the 15th, when the primaries are only open to Republicans.

Truthmonger March 8, 2016 at 7:24 pm

BUT when the advertising is from an undesirable source (such as the RNC at this point), it DOES tend to gel opinion. We HATE the GOPe at this point, so when they attack Trump it’s a sympathetic response (enemy of my enemy is my ally). You’re losing power, and you can’t understand why. Pathetic.

Hank March 8, 2016 at 7:28 pm

Well let me tell you how Mitt affected me. Because of the BS the GOP establishment has pulled, if its not Trump its nobody for me, and I think a lot of other people too. I will stay home. Lets see how the establishment does without that 40% of the party they have been ignoring for decades now.

stumpknocker March 8, 2016 at 8:06 pm

looking for that 1000 year reich thingy huh?

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:25 am

I sure am.

Too bad March 9, 2016 at 12:09 am

The GOP establishment knows that if they steal the primary from Trump that Hilliary gets elected, in fact, they prefer it.

Squishy123 March 8, 2016 at 10:34 pm

Romney’s magic underwear didn’t help him this time.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:20 am

He probably got skid marks in them, I do all the time.

MauldinGuy March 8, 2016 at 11:51 pm

Donald Trump knows the people hate the GOP Establishment. The more the Establishment comes after him the better he does.

He knows the people hate the Washington DC Establishment. The more they come after him the better he will do.

The Clintons are the real leaders in DC-they represent all that the Establishment is-crooked, greedy, etc.

Trump is a genius. He will be president

Uh huh March 9, 2016 at 12:11 am

““Dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark,” Romney added.”

and losing is Mitt Romney’s hallmark.

Bible Thumper March 9, 2016 at 7:44 am

Trump has victory speech beside display Trump products including raw meat
Rather than deliver a conventional victory speech, the billionaire held a news conference and conducted what looked in parts like an infomercial, arguing that products that bear his name, like bottled water and wine, are commercial successes.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:14 am

What a beautiful event it was.Brilliant and he owned the press.Get over it liberal.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:17 am

Have you noticed that who ever gives the response to the SOTU effectively ends their national political life?:


They are always exposed as being frauds when they speak,

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:24 am

And I supported all of those at one point. Even the brown ones because I thought they were race traitors. But none of them are actually racist like me.

Rocky Verdad March 9, 2016 at 8:15 am

I have great steaks, they’re really great, let me tell you!!! And wine, I have a wine farm, or whatever it’s called, I can tell you. Believe me, my steak and wine are really good. They’re so good, I don’t sell them to people unless they stay at my hotels, because you have to be really successful to stay at my hotel. Believe me.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:20 am

LMAO!!! Trump stuck it to everyone of you American hating,socialist,illegal immigration loving lowlifes last night.

It just kills those of you that want to see America fail and destroyed when someone speaks of the greatness of this nation and making it better than ever.

Rocky Verdad March 9, 2016 at 8:23 am

Drunk again? I hear that Trump wino hangover really sucks.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:24 am

Did ya fuck ugly this morning?How does it feel to have a communist winning your party’s nomination?LMAO!!!!

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:24 am

I fuck ugly whenever I masturbate.

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:29 am

Bernie is the one that wrote articles about that subject.Pervert.”A 1972 essay by Vermont Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is getting some attention today, because it’s weird as fuck. Bernie opines that men masturbate to images of women who are “tied up” and abused, while women fantasize about “being raped by three men simultaneously.” Oh, you’re paying attention to the election stuff now”

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:31 am

Bernie is Jewish and I’m a Klansman so naturally I don’t like Bernie. I prefer Trump along with David Duke and the other KKK members and white nationalists.

What does PilF stand for anyways? Pedophiles I’d Like to Fuck? Wouldn’t you like that!

PilF March 9, 2016 at 8:36 am

Better empty the trash can before Fits gets in.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:39 am

Go ahead brother, we’ll wait for you to get that done.

Rocky Verdad March 9, 2016 at 8:32 am


Todd March 9, 2016 at 3:09 pm

Opines? Those are both easily verifiable facts.

Pogo March 9, 2016 at 8:21 am

Trump is about as smart as I am, you can’t make fun of special needs people like us.

erneba March 9, 2016 at 10:38 am

The establishment Republicans just don’t get it. This is not so much about Trump as it is the abject frustration the electorate has for the Republican Establishment.

Krazy Kat March 9, 2016 at 11:31 am

It is mind boggling. The Ruling elites, corporate crooks, banksters and their media shills
have now come out and decreed: Stop it!
This is OUR party and OUR country.
WE bought it and you little peons need to get in your place!”

Now they say “Don’t vote for Trump.” But they offer no alternative. “Oh, vote for Rubio in
Florida and Kasich in Ohio—we’ll sort it all out later.” They find chaos and self-destruction
preferable to letting the unwashed masses decide on their own candidate!!

emmiekate March 9, 2016 at 3:19 pm

Mitt Romney and these other political crooks need to keep their FUCKING mouth shut!!!
