Romney shows his superficial side

I once admired Mitt Romney. I thought he was a role model. But bitter over his failed presidential campaign in 2012, Romney wants to extract revenge.

Oh not on the man who defeated him (and who likely cheated and spied on his campaign).

No, Romney is feuding with the man who did what he could not do: defeat a Democratic presidential nominee.

During the campaign, Romney insisted that President Trump was no conservative.

But President Trump has accomplished more for conservatives in a shorter time than the last two Republican presidents.

He rolled back 1,000 regulations, pushed Republicans to pass a tax cut, got the corporate tax rate cut from 35% down to 21%, got NATO allies to pony up that 2% of GDP devoted to military spending that they promised, and has ditched the TPP and the Paris climate thingy.

Romney brushed all that aside in an interview with NBC News. Instead of praising Trump's actions, Romney attacked his words.

"Romney praised the president's actions on tax policy, regulatory and public land policy and said he'd 'be with him' on policies he agrees with, but 'if the president were to say something that I consider highly divisive or racist or misogynistic, I'll call him out on it because I think it's important for people to know exactly where one stands,'" CBS News reported.

Good gravy. What a superficial man. He is more concerned with style than substance. Romney sounds like a Clinton.

"I don't think that I would point to the president as a role model for my grandkids on the basis of his personal style," Romney said.

"He has departed in some cases from the truth, and has attacked in a way that I think is not entirely appropriate. I think that his policies have been by and large a good deal better than I might have expected. But some of the things he has said are not ones that I would aspire for my grandkids to adopt."

Did Romney ever call out Obama for his lies such as You Can Keep Your Doctor?

No because someone might call Romney racist. Trump is a politically correct target for all that frustration Romney has over losing a race that really should have been his.

I prefer to think of Romney as the man who prepared a last will and testament for a terminally ill boy.

Actions, not words.

    1. Romney and McCain are running neck and neck for biggest sore loser. We got stuck with Sotero but that has led to PDJT. if either of the biggest losers had won we wouldn’t never have turned the corner as a country.

  2. Romney stands as a testament to the GOPe.

    Donald is an American first. The contrast could not be more stark. Romney losing to Jug-Ears in '12 was a blessing in disguise.

  5. NeverTrumpers and the GOPe remind me of the Pharisees and the Sadducees. They didn't much care for that upstart "Jesus" guy from Galilee because he was doing things differently.

  6. Romney is a lib deep state insider, bought and paid for, and with more emotional investment in virtue signalling than in defending the common man.

    Let him go to dressage tournaments with his hundred thousand dollar horses in quiet retirement.

    We don't need people on our side like him. It's just a matter of time before they stab you in the back and give you up to the enemy.

  7. Too bad Romney can't get an orange spray tan, like less superficial folks. His wife probably doesn't mind being in the same zip code with him either. Speaking of accomplishments, hows that Nobel prize coming along?

  8. If there is a problem with Romney it is that he is incapable of being an intensely Morman person and a politician. Unlike the wave like electron he cannot be in two states simultaneously. He preferred to be considered pious for not attacking and finishing off Obama when he was exsanguinating on the arena debating sands, his own spear stuck in his throat. Instead he walked away and recieved a fatal wound in the back from one of the Monarch's fat slaves, a wholly deserved loss. Imagine him as CNC, I cannot. I hope Utah does in his political career for good.

  9. Romney was born in the wrong place in the wrong age. He would be much more naturally at home in an 18th Century European salon wearing a perfumed powdered wig, long white stockings, and silver buckled shoes.

  10. Mr. Surber's problem with Romney's comment about Trump making "highly divisive or racist" statements is interesting coming from someone who wrote in this very blog that Obama was a "race-baiting president."

  11. "Not a role model because of his personal style" -- but he's in the news, what did Trump say that he didn't like? And when did he say it? Last week? month? year? decade? Was it in a speech, or a tweet? or "privately"?

    Romney and all who say they don't like Trump's words need to point to what he says -- heck, 50+ million Americans are "following" him.

    Now that I'm following him -- I LIKE what he says, most of the time. Like this one:
    "With the #RightToTry Law I signed today, patients with life threatening illnesses will finally have access to experimental treatments that could improve or even cure their conditions. "

    Only the intellectual lazy will say they don't like some words without quoting some.

    As for 3 wives, that is not the role model I want for my kids -- but it's both understandable and forgivable. And if the Dems want more honor in marriage, they should be promoting it more. The "fidelity in marriage" voters have already lost in the general culture.

    Funny, maybe the #MeToo movement will help bring it back after it accuses enough (mostly Dem) men of being unfaithful, mostly truthfully.

  12. How Mitt lost that race, I don’t know. Well, I do know. He didn’t FIGHT. Welcome to the 21st Century, Mittens, where politics is a blood sport and nice guys finish last.

  13. "But President Trump has accomplished more for conservatives in a shorter time than the last two Republican presidents."

    Think how far we'd be if those GOPe politicos were supporting Trump. And voting the way they pledged to vote. Trump has accomplished a lot with one hand...the other hand protecting his back from Repub snakes.

  15. Romney's idea of what a 'conservative' is: someone who tries to manage the redistribution behemoth Democrats created just a little better than they can.

  16. A revealing moment in the movie "Mitt" comes after he unexpectedly won the first debate with BHO. Incredibly, he drew no confidence from it. Instead of thinking, "This guy isn't ten feet tall!" he continues to think BHO is ten feet tall. He was defeated before he walked onto that stage in the second debate. And he spent the third debate AGREEING with BHO most of the time!

    Your fifteen minutes are up Mitt. Get lost.

  17. I'm sorry but Romney only has a superficial side to begin with. He is more of the McCain brand of RINO than a Republican and definably not a conservative.
