Why Trump is President and Romney Isn't

The for­mer gov­er­nor of Mass­a­chu­setts Mitt Rom­ney gave a per­fect illus­tra­tion of the dif­fer­ence between him and Don­ald Trump this weekend.

The Utah GOP Sen­ate Can­di­date had this to say about the press:

Repub­li­can Sen­ate can­di­date and for­mer pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Mitt Rom­ney on Thurs­day defended the media “as essen­tial to our Repub­lic,” break­ing with Pres­i­dent Trump, who has called the press “the enemy of the people.”

“I can­not con­ceive of think­ing or say­ing that the media or any respon­si­ble news orga­ni­za­tion is an enemy. The media is essen­tial to our Repub­lic, to our free­dom, to the cause of free­dom abroad, and to our national secu­rity. It is very much our friend,” Rom­ney wrote in a blog post on his cam­paign website.

The good folks at twitchy decided to give him a refresher course on just a sin­gle issue, the Rom­ney Dog story:

Hon­estly, we just Googled “Mitt Rom­ney dog car” and instantly found sto­ries from the Wash­ing­ton Post, the New York Times, NPR, the New York Daily News, TIME (“Romney’s Cruel Canine Vaca­tion”), the Toronto Star, Slate, the Huff­in­g­ton Post, Forbes, The Hill, ABC News (“Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney’s Pooch?”), the Daily Beast, the Boston Globe (“What Our Fas­ci­na­tion About Mitt Romney’s Dog Says About Our Cul­ture”), the Seat­tle Times, the Chris­t­ian Sci­ence Mon­i­tor, Jezebel, the Texas Observer (“Romney’s Dog Story Will Make You Hit the Roof”), the Daily Mail …

You’ll notice one of those sto­ries is at The Hill where that ini­tial quote above came from. I did a search of “Rom­ney Dog” at The Hill and found from the elec­tion season:

Authors bite at Rom­ney dog tale in new book

Obama pokes fun at the war on dogs, drunk texts from Hillary Clinton

White House spokesman: Rom­ney in the ‘dog­house’ in pres­i­den­tial canine clash

Rom­ney: Would ‘cer­tainly not’ put dog on car roof again

Rom­ney regrets putting dog on the roof of the car
Mitt Romney’s dog rides on the roof, while his Cadil­lacs ride the ele­va­tor in his man­sion!
Pro­test­ers at West­min­ster dog show crit­i­cize Romney’s treat­ment of pet pooch

Dogs Against Rom­ney speak out!

Axel­rod tweaks Rom­ney over strap­ping dog to car roof

ASPCA, PETA crit­i­cize Rom­ney for dog on top of car dur­ing roadtrip

Romney’s ‘dog on a car roof’ story won’t go away

Sea­mus (That’s the Dog)

Rom­ney Takes a ‘Ruff’ Vacation

That’s 13 count them 13 hit pieces on the Dog on the roof story alone, and that’s from a sin­gle main­stream media site.

Now let’s look at Don­ald Trump’s response to Axios on this issue of the press

In an inter­view to be aired Sun­day on HBO, Don­ald Trump admits to Axios that he doesn’t really con­sider the media the “true enemy of the peo­ple,” but says that’s the “only way of fight­ing back” he has against false reports. If the media would report fairly, Trump tells the agi­tated inter­viewer, he’d be the “nicest pres­i­dent” ever.

When pressed, Trump denies that any­one has advised him to tone it down. “Hey, I’m here!” Trump exclaims. “It got me here!” It’s the same basic “Rom­ney didn’t win, did he?” that Reid offered up when con­fronted over his smear tac­tics against Mitt Romney:

There’s a rea­son why Don­ald Trump is Pres­i­dent and Mitt Rom­ney path to the US Sen­ate was not the state that he gov­erned and imposed Rom­n­ey­care on but the safest pos­si­ble seat in the nation for the GOP in gen­eral and for him in par­tic­u­lar. As a per­son on twit­ter noted

Or to put it another way. More impor­tantly there is a rea­son why Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is sought after by can­di­dates in key races across the nation to appear with them draw­ing thou­sands of folks in nation­wide ral­lies streamed every­where while Mitt Rom­ney a for­mer GOP pres­i­den­tial can­di­date in a safe race is prac­ti­cally invisible

Which one would YOU want on your side?

The former governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney gave a perfect illustration of the difference between him and Donald Trump this weekend.

The Utah GOP Senate Candidate had this to say about the press:

Republican Senate candidate and former presidential nominee Mitt Romney on Thursday defended the media “as essential to our Republic,” breaking with President Trump, who has called the press “the enemy of the people.”

“I cannot conceive of thinking or saying that the media or any responsible news organization is an enemy. The media is essential to our Republic, to our freedom, to the cause of freedom abroad, and to our national security. It is very much our friend,” Romney wrote in a blog post on his campaign website.

The good folks at twitchy decided to give him a refresher course on just a single issue, the Romney Dog story:

Honestly, we just Googled “Mitt Romney dog car” and instantly found stories from the Washington Post, the New York Times, NPR, the New York Daily News, TIME (“Romney’s Cruel Canine Vacation”), the Toronto Star, Slate, the Huffington Post, Forbes, The Hill, ABC News (“Dog on Roof? What Was It Like for Romney’s Pooch?”), the Daily Beast, the Boston Globe (“What Our Fascination About Mitt Romney’s Dog Says About Our Culture”), the Seattle Times, the Christian Science Monitor, Jezebel, the Texas Observer (“Romney’s Dog Story Will Make You Hit the Roof”), the Daily Mail …

You’ll notice one of those stories is at The Hill where that initial quote above came from.  I did a search of “Romney Dog” at The Hill and found from the election season:

Authors bite at Romney dog tale in new book

Obama pokes fun at the war on dogs, drunk texts from Hillary Clinton

White House spokesman: Romney in the ‘doghouse’ in presidential canine clash

Romney: Would ‘certainly not’ put dog on car roof again

Romney regrets putting dog on the roof of the car

That’s 13 count them 13 hit pieces on the Dog on the roof story alone, and that’s from a single mainstream media site.

Now let’s look at Donald Trump’s response to Axios on this issue of the press

  In an interview to be aired Sunday on HBO, Donald Trump admits to Axios that he doesn’t really consider the media the “true enemy of the people,” but says that’s the “only way of fighting back” he has against false reports. If the media would report fairly, Trump tells the agitated interviewer, he’d be the “nicest president” ever.

When pressed, Trump denies that anyone has advised him to tone it down. “Hey, I’m here!” Trump exclaims. “It got me here!” It’s the same basic “Romney didn’t win, did he?” that Reid offered up when confronted over his smear tactics against Mitt Romney:

There’s a reason why Donald Trump is President and Mitt Romney path to the US Senate was not the state that he governed and imposed Romneycare on but the safest possible seat in the nation for the GOP in general and for him in particular. As a person on twitter noted

Or to put it another way. More importantly there is a reason why President Donald Trump is sought after by candidates in key races across the nation to appear with them drawing thousands of folks in nationwide rallies streamed everywhere while Mitt Romney a former GOP presidential candidate in a safe race is practically invisible
