Mitt Romney: ‘Dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Mitt Romney says Donald Trump lacks the temperament and the integrity to be president — and that the GOP should pick one of the other three candidates.

He says, the only serious policy proposals that deal with the broad range of national challenges we confront today, come from Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and John Kasich. One of these men should be our nominee.”

He tells a University of Utah audience that “dishonesty is Donald Trump’s hallmark.”

The 2012 GOP presidential nominee says Trump imagined that he saw Muslims celebrating the September 11, 2001 attacks in New Jersey.

He adds: “His imagination must not be married to real power.”

      That is true. None of them can be fully trusted. The thing is though, that you can not solve a problem unless you first correctly identify what the problem is. The only candidate from any party who is willing to openly state what the problems even are is Donald Trump. So if we are going to elect a liar and a cheat anyway, we should at least elect the one who is willing to speak to the actual issues that the American people want to address, rather than address the issues that the PACs and Big Corps and leaders from other countries want to push forward as an agenda. At the very least, Trump is the only one to recognize openly what the will of the American people even is. Nobody has been willing to do even that since Truman. So if nothing else, electing Trump will keep the will of the American people in the conversation. “We the people” will matter again. Not much, but if anyone else is elected the will of the Americain people will stay in irrelevance, and perhaps sink down into non-existence. It is like an abusive relationship. If you tell someone their opinion means nothing long enough, and treat them like it for long enough, eventually they will come to believe it and will act like it, and it will become the truth. But keep the belief that your opinion is valued, and even if it gets ignored the will remains and the strength remains, and the fight remains. Americans have been beaten down by their politicians long enough, I’d say. Time to get out from under the oppression of these cookie-cutter abusive thug politicians.

    Oh please. Romney is just another panicked establishment Republican who is butthurt because their elitist enclave is being taken from them by the people. Well guess what, Mitt? It is too late! You and your cronies can cry all you want, but the REAL Republicans are taking their party back from the establishment and are going to do our part to get our country back from the hands of the traitors currently in Washington DC!

    A note for you Democrats…you will have some catching up to do come next election, but I urge you to find a non-establishment candidate of your own who is not going to give you the same old runaround that you have been getting for the last 50 years as well. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying watching these establishment suits like Romney be the ones to do the squirming for a change! You should try it with your party, I promise you that we will all be better for it.

    It is unfathomable to me that the Republican party is allowing one of its member politicians to speak so disparagingly about one of its own candidates.
    If they didn’t want Trump as a candidate they should have told him no at the beginning.
    Once they said yes, they ought to be expected to support him just as much as they support any of their other candidates.
    This is an embarrassing, classless, and boorish display of inhuman ugliness on Romney’s part, and if the GOP doesn’t severely reprimand him for it they will be showing their true colors in a fashion which justifies the Republican population’s overwhelming support of Trump as the GOP nominee.
    If this is the sort of behavior which the Republican party believes to reflect the values of American Republicans, they are very much mistaken.
    Shame on Mitt Romney!

      “If this is the sort of behavior which the Republican party believes to reflect the values of American Republicans, they are very much mistaken.”

      That is a very well made point, Dorothy. And I think it speaks volumes that the GOP can not even see that their behavior as a party contradicts the values they claim to hold. You hit the nail right on the head.
