GOP treating Romney as Conservative Savior for Hitting Trump Are You Kidding Me?

Brett Mav­er­ick: Jim­son hadn’t been in the game 10 min­utes before I when I knew why he was there. He was the real expert mak­ing his two brace men look like a pair of ama­teurs He was there to get his money back and he had already slipped a cou­ple of smooth tricks might past me. But I had him spot­ted now and he had all the money back he was going to get.

Today will be quite a day at CPAC the annual gath­er­ing of true believ­ers in the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment. and a lot of the peo­ple there are angry about two things:

The lack of Can­noli due to my absence

Don­ald Trump speak­ing on Saturday

Also today Mitt Rom­ney is going to get up before the crowd and give a speech explain­ing why Don­ald trump is not a true con­ser­v­a­tive and why he must be stopped.

Now let me begin this post by say­ing with­out equiv­o­ca­tion that I believe Ted Cruz is the best choice for the GOP nom­i­na­tion and that ques­tion­ing if Don­ald Trump means it when he says he’s con­ser­v­a­tive is legitimate.

But the idea of Mitt Rom­ney giv­ing a speech about how Don­ald Trump being a dan­ger to future of the coun­try and to con­ser­vatism can have only one reaction …

Are you kid­ding me?

Is there a sin­gle con­ser­v­a­tive at CPAC who remem­bers Rom­ney as the gov­er­nor of Mass­a­chu­setts? Of Rom­ney will­ing to see us out on Oba­macare, on Gay Mar­riage, on Global Warm­ing, on Bor­der secu­rity? Has any­one for­got that it was the Mitt Rom­ney team that tried to sup­press the Ron Paul peo­ple when he already had the game won?

Yet as I lis­ten to this Mitt Rom­ney speech I see con­ser­v­a­tive after con­ser­v­a­tive retweet­ing and cheer­ing his words.

Mitt Rom­ney says Trump is play­ing us for suck­ers. That is cer­tainly pos­si­ble and it’s a legit­i­mate question.

But there is absolutely no ques­tion the GOP estab­lish­ment have played us all for suck­ers for years and worst of all, all of us in the con­ser­v­a­tive move­ment know this.

Yeah Trump is an ego dri­ven can­di­date, yes in many ways Trump is all about him­self, yes he thinks he’s smarter than every­one else, but every­body knows this. It’s obvi­ous he thinks this stuff, he doesn’t try to hide it.

But for God’s sake, isn’t that a per­fect descrip­tion of the GOP Estab­lish­ment? Isn’t that a great descrip­tion of Mitt Romney?

The GOP estab­lish­ment is ego dri­ven, they are all about them­selves, they think they’re smarter than every­one else, the dif­fer­ence is they do their best not to tele­graph it.

Rom­ney warn­ing con­ser­v­a­tives that Trump is not one of is us like Lucy going to Char­lie Brown say­ing: “I don’t trust that girl hold­ing the foot­ball for you to kick.”

All Mitt Rom­ney has done today is record a com­mer­cial for Hillary Clin­ton to be used if Trump wins the nom­i­na­tion, which by this absolutely pos­i­tively stu­pid move he has enabled and if you doubt that ask your­self why do you think the MSM which just a few years ago were attack­ing Mitt as a heart­less soul­less out of touch fool who is full of hate for the com­mon peo­ple are prac­ti­cally stand­ing to line to com­pli­ment him?

An even bet­ter ques­tion is: Can any­one remem­ber Mitt Rom­ney being this force­ful against Barack Obama?

Bot­tom line Mitt Rom­ney & the GOP are gam­blers run­ning a crooked game in town warn­ing us rubes that the new­comer is a crook, not because he might be, but because they don’t want him cut­ting in on their action.

And if we con­ser­v­a­tive don’t rec­og­nize this then we deserve to con­tinue to be taken for suck­ers as we have been.

Today is day 1 of CPAC and for the 2nd year straight I’m in Mass­a­chu­setts rather than Mary­land. Hope­fully now that I’ve been called back to work I can use DaTip­Jar to pay down my debts so next year I can afford CPAC.

Today we’ve at $22 of our $61 dol­lar goal, $39 to go to make our goal and maybe cut into our deficit of $1285 and 21.06 days.

So if you’d like to help us keep up the pace please con­sider hit­ting DaTipJar

Today will be quite a day at CPAC the annual gathering of true believers in the conservative movement. and a lot of the people there are angry about two things:

The lack of Cannoli due to my absence

Donald Trump speaking on Saturday

Also today Mitt Romney is going to get up before the crowd and give a speech explaining why Donald trump is not a true conservative and why he must be stopped.

Now let me begin this post by saying without equivocation that I believe Ted Cruz is the best choice for the GOP nomination and that questioning if Donald Trump means it when he says he’s conservative is legitimate.

But the idea of Mitt Romney giving a speech about how Donald Trump being a danger to future of the country and to conservatism can have only one reaction …

Are you kidding me?

Is there a single conservative at CPAC who remembers Romney as the governor of Massachusetts? Of Romney willing to see us out on Obamacare, on Gay Marriage,  on Global Warming, on Border security?  Has anyone forgot that it was the Mitt Romney team that tried to suppress the Ron Paul people when he already had the game won?

Yet as I listen to this Mitt Romney speech I see conservative after conservative retweeting and cheering his words.

Mitt Romney says Trump is playing us for suckers.  That is certainly possible and it’s a legitimate question.

But there is absolutely no question the GOP establishment have played us all for suckers for years and worst of all, all of us in the conservative movement know this.

Yeah Trump is an ego driven candidate, yes in many ways Trump is all about himself, yes he thinks he’s smarter than everyone else, but everybody knows this.  It’s obvious he thinks this stuff, he doesn’t try to hide it.

But for God’s sake, isn’t that a perfect description of the GOP Establishment?  Isn’t that a great description of Mitt Romney?

The GOP establishment is ego driven, they are all about themselves, they think they’re smarter than everyone else, the difference is they do their best not to telegraph it.

Romney warning conservatives that Trump is not one of is us like Lucy going to Charlie Brown saying:  “I don’t trust that girl holding the football for you to kick.”

All Mitt Romney has done today is record a commercial for Hillary Clinton to be used if Trump wins the nomination, which by this absolutely positively stupid move he has enabled and if you doubt that ask yourself why do you think the MSM which just a few years ago were attacking Mitt as a heartless soulless out of touch fool who is full of hate for the common people are practically standing to line to compliment him?

An even better question is: Can anyone remember Mitt Romney being this forceful against Barack Obama?

Bottom line Mitt Romney & the GOP are gamblers running a crooked game in town warning us rubes that the newcomer is a crook, not because he might be, but because they don’t want him cutting in on their action.

And if we conservative don’t recognize this then we deserve to continue to be taken for suckers as we have been.
