I’m not the biggest fan of Mitt Romney. He’s a RomneyCare, big-government, big-business conservative in the mold of the 1970’s GOP instead of the Reagan revolution. He lost the 2012 election because he failed to engage Obama on Benghazi and ignored his own poor demographics.
Donald Trump saw this coming and poo-poohed the man he endorsed in 2012, saying Romney begged him.
Why did Mitt Romney BEG me for my endorsement four years ago?

I’m sure Romney did not beg anything. It’s just another lie from the Trump lie factory. Like I said, in 2012 Romney was my “hold my nose” candidate. Trump is my #NeverTrump.
And on this topic, Romney should be taken seriously. He blasted Trump today in a speech from Salt Lake City, Utah.
He’s playing the members of the American public for suckers. He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat. His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill. I’m convinced America has greatness ahead. And this is a time for choosing.
Yes. It is a time for choosing.
