I just watched a portion of Mitt Romney’s speech, from earlier today, bashing Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump. Mr. Romney had very unkind things to say about his fellow Republican, calling him “a phony … a fraud” and saying, “He’s playing the members of the American public for suckers.”
That’s some bold, blunt talk. One cannot help but notice it’s the kind of language that applies most accurately to the current occupant of the White House, a Democrat named Barack Obama. And one has to wonder, why didn’t Mr. Romney make such determined statements when it really mattered … in his stump speech against Barack Obama in 2012?
If he had consistently shown such verve in confronting Obama back then, it’s a good bet Romney would be our President today. And Trump, bless his heart, would not be running for the office now. Most importantly, however, we might well have avoided these additional four, agonizing years of the Obama Administration’s dishonesty, incompetence and lawlessness.
So, where were you, Mitt? When we needed you?Follow @PolitiQuick
