I heard this speech live and could not take notes because I was driving, the following is what I remember.
Romney referred to great leaders of the past who rallied Americans together when things were dark in order to condemn Trump who is rallying for a divisive cause, then he cited leaders who led us through rough times when the threats were from other world leaders/nations; completely ignoring that our anger today is at OUR OWN GOVERNMENT who is acting against us.
Romney cited several lies about Trump (not renouncing the KKK, not being legitimately successful, not understanding China); Trump is wrong on China but his position is exactly the same as Romney’s. there were others I am forgetting but the point is the moment he regurgitated the lies he lost all credibility on the legitimate criticisms.
Romney had the gall to mention how Trumps tax plan would “balloon the deficit” as if the GOP who has been holding the purse for six years has not increased our debt faster than any time in our countries history. Romney still thinks the GOP has credibility on the issue of spending!
Romney refused to directly admit that he wants the Establishment Rubio but he cited the strategy of voting for whoever was second strongest in every State to keep Trump from amassing enough delegates to win; anyone with a brain knew that he was advocating letting the Establishment controlled convention use the lack of one candidate with enough delegates to take over the nominating process and pick their own shill.
Baffling that these idiots are this clueless about what the electorate is mad about, Romney basically gave a speech declaring that those who oppose Trump are doing so because they like the way the GOP has been operating and want it to continue; I would bet that Romney has no idea that he communicated that and most likely further solidified Trumps support and won Trump some new supporters as well.
I do NOT support Trump and I have seen some signs of hope that Cruz can make a fight out of this but this speech by the buffoon Romney probably just gave Trump 5 more points which will offset the 5 that Cruz probably just got by Carson admitting defeat.
Which is probably fine with Romney since he hates Cruz just as much, what a douche-bag. The only reason Romney gave this speech was because every elected Republican is scared to death to come out against Trump, they are cowards who know they will likely lose their seat if they rail against the outsiders; so they trot out a guy with nothing to lose to try their “idea”.
Moronic idea from GOP morons, same crap different day.
