Mitt Romney Endorsed Donald Trump……. Before Selling His Soul To The Devil

“Donald Trump has shown an extraordinary ability to understand how our economy works. To create jobs for the American people. He’s done it here in Nevada. He’s done it across the country. He understands that our economy is facing threats from abroad. He’s one of the few people who stood up and said China has been cheating. They’ve taken jobs from Americans. They haven’t played fair. We have to have a President who will stand up to cheaters.” – Mitt Romney

After Donald Trump endorsed Mitt Romney in February 2012, Romney stood before the world and stated what is written above, seen in the video below.

It is now 2016 and Donald Trump is the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nominee and Mitt Romney has just sold his soul to the “establishment devils” as he has been bought and paid for and is now being used like a puppet by the GOP political establishment in an all-out, desperate and panicked attempt to stop what is being called the “Trump Phenomenon.”

Romney is now calling Trump a “Phony,” a “fraud” saying Trump is playing Americans for suckers…… yet after seeing Romney praise Trump in the video above we  have to ask…. who is being phony? Who is the fraud? Who is attempting to “play Americans?”

Here is another flashback, via The American Mirror, showing Mitt Romney at the Washington Ideas Forum in September stating that he would “support the Republican nominee.” He went on to say he didn’t think Trump would be that nominee because his party, the Republicans, has “historically, has nominated a mainstream conservative.”

Last but not least, one more flashback…. whether you love Trump, hate him, support him or support another candidate, what this clip from an Oprah appearance by Trump in 1988 shows that his positions on the economy, the very things that Romney praised Trump for in 2012, are the same. While Trump’s positions on other topics has changed over the years, he is honest in his criticisms over how America’s economy has been handled and he has held that stance for decades.

At ANP we have seen through the comments that many are supporting Trump and many are not, some trust him, some do not…. as it should be, every individual has the right, the obligation, to do what they feel is the right thing whether it is to vote, not vote, support a specific  candidate or support another……. but there is no dispute that Trump is leading in the polls, has accrued the most delegatesand the majority of primary/caucus wins to date.

Whether any of us as individuals plan to support Trump or not, the majority of those who have already cast votes, via the GOP primaries and caucuses, have chosen Trump and for the establishment to attempt to sabotage, make back-room deals and buy and sell the souls of those who many once thought could be trusted, like Mitt Romney, is a blatant attempt to thwart the will of the people who have already spoken.

When GOP establishment leaders declare they would support Hillary Clinton over the frontrunner of the race in their own party…. we see who are really the frauds, the phonies and the ones trying to play Americans for suckers.

Then again, this is not the first time Republicans have betrayed their party, their constituents and their base, as this flashback image from Drudge reminds us.

[UPDATE] Trump has a very good question, via his Twitter account, where he asks “Why did Mitt Romney BEG me for my endorsement four years ago?”

MITT ROMNEY’S FACEBOOK PAGE: “CURRENTLY RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT” Entry changed after screenshot circulates on social media

mittromney2-460x307On the day that the former Governor of Massachusetts slammed Donald Trump as a “phony,” eyebrows were raised after it was discovered that Mitt Romney’s Facebook page stated that he is “currently running for President of the United States of America”.

“So… this is the current “About” section of Mitt Romney’s Facebook page,” tweeted NBC Nightly News editor Bradd Jaffy, alongside a screenshot of Romney’s official Facebook profile page.

The bio states that Romney is “currently running for President of the United States, Republican.”

That sparked interest because there is speculation Romney has re-inserted himself into campaign politics over the last couple of weeks because the GOP establishment is preparing to run him against Trump if Marco Rubio fails to win in Florida.

“I think that there is a relatively strong chance that the establishment tries to find an opening for Mitt Romney to run,” political consultant John Yobtold CBS News.

“The establishment will pull out every trick in the book to stop Donald Trump and one of those tricks will be trying to get Mitt Romney to run.”

Even though Romney would stand a slim chance of beating Trump’s delegate count, he could emerge victorious in a brokered convention or even run third party to siphon votes away from The Donald.

The Facebook entry was quickly changed after the screenshot circulated on social media.

Some pointed out that the entry was probably just an error because the page hasn’t been updated since the 2012 elections.

And that probably tells you everything you need to know about Mitt Romney’s relevance four years later.

 

Take a Close Look at This Rand Paul Tweet Calling Out Mitt Romney & Jeb Bush — Do You See the Error?

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called out Governor’s Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush on Twitter Thursday afternoon — but made a glaring error in one of the posts.

jeb-george-bushThe Kentucky senator, playing off news that Romney and Bush were meeting privately, sent out two tweets with the aim of poking fun at them.

“Jeb Bush apparently gave Mitt Romney a ‘third time’s a charm’ bracelet at their meeting in Utah today,” Paul tweeted.

That was accompanied by a Common Core jab at Bush.

“Mitt Romney’s friendship to Jeb Bush at today’s meeting in Utah,” he tweeted.

Immediately after sending the latter tweet, individuals on Twitter ridiculed Paul for misspelling the word “friendship” in the attached graphic. Missing the letter “d,” it was spelled “frienship” instead of “friendship.”

The senator deleted he original tweet, conceded his mistake and attached a corrected image.

“Lay off,” he wrote. “It was a common core post. We don’t have to spell it right!”

Paul, Romney and Bush are all thought to be pondering 2016 White House bids.

Romney/Sandoval 2016?

Can a more perfect Republican dream team be imagined going into 2016 than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval?

Romney recently advanced dramatically when his name was added to a poll in Iowa. Since then, punditry and the press have been in mad pursuit. It might even be fair to call this sudden and surprising Romney rise a political phenomenon; that is, something unexpected and unprecedented spontaneously arising as if on its own accord from nature and with a sense of authenticity that connects with and determines the direction of the times. Romney continues to deny that he is running, but as the Concord Monitor has noted, the language shifts incrementally from “not running” to “not planning on running.”

We in New Hampshire and Massachusetts know Romney well and there is little doubt in our hearts and minds that if, when the race advances, danger or instability lurks and our status and responsibilities in the world are challenged, he will without hesitation consider the call.

romneyAnd Romney awakens again in our world as new lights rise in the West. A star was born earlier this month in the debate between California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and Republican challenger Neel Kashkari. We see the new rise against the old with the vital Kashkari, who as Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said recently, “could be the face of a new GOP,” debating against “Governor Moonbeam.” Brown, like Bill and Hillary, an endless reenactor of his own life. His era has passed, 50 years now, and in 2014 and 2016 will see its final day as T.S. Eliot said, not with a bang, but a whimper.
New rises against the old in the Republican party as well, even as the party is on the verge of defaulting back to patterns of retreat to self-righteousness and nostalgia, nursing and nurturing the superiority of failed, dated and doomed positions. And Rand Paul aside, how many arrivistes in the newly empowered Tea Party today turn out to be only newly minted mini-McCains and Lindsey Grahams?

But what could better symbolize the West rising today in economy, wit and population better than Tesla Motors? And what could more symbolize the rise of the New West than the arrival of Tesla’s battery manufacturing gigafactory outside Reno, which could pump $100 billion into the state’s economy, according to the Los Angeles Times, brought to Nevada by the dynamic and able governor, Brian Sandoval?

Possibly the Tesla deal answers Jack Kerouac’s fateful post-World War II question: “Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night?” Let this be our answer and our destination. Let this shiny new car be the symbol of America rising to first days again in the West. And let the governor who brought it to Nevada be America’s messenger.

“By negotiating a colossal deal with California-based Tesla Motors for it to build a massive battery factory close to Nevada’s state capital, cowboy-booted, tailored suit-wearing Mexican-American Republican Gov. Brian Sandoval has demonstrated he has the tools, brains and sense to lead the GOP out of Obama-inflicted doldrums,” Raoul Lowery Contreras wrote here at The Hill recently.

Economy and population all head west today and have been doing so since the end of World War II. We enter today an age of empowerment and energy rising in the Western states; California, Texas, now with Nevada entering into the first rank.

“Can a Mexican-American candidate save the GOP?” asks Contreras. Indeed, can there possibly be a better East/West matchup for former Massachusetts Gov. Romney in 2016 than Nevada’s Sandoval?
