Trump Cuts Loose on Mitt Romney: He is a 'Pompous Ass' Who 'Choked' and 'So Bad for R’s!'

Quote
mediaite.com · by Caleb Howe · October 5, 2019

President Trump began this week’s Saturday morning rants in the usual fashion, bashing the media for being “fixed” and “corrupt”, but after those few tweets were out of the way he focused his weekend wrath on Senator and former primary opponent Mitt Romney.

“Somebody please wake up Mitt Romney and tell him that my conversation with the Ukrainian President was a congenial and very appropriate one, and my statement on China pertained to corruption, not politics,” Trump began. “If Mitt worked this hard on Obama, he could have won.”

The tweets were obviously in response to Romney taking to Twitter on Friday for his own rant against the President, calling out Trump’s “brazen” appeals to China and Ukraine for his own political gain and describing Trump’s actions as “wrong and appalling.”

It was "His Turn," having lost to McStain four years before.  His job was to throw the election to the Lightworker, just like his predecessor, and he gladly performed his assigned task.  I assume he still has the same paymaster these days.

Romney is a "Happy Warrior"...for the wrong side.

And, as I always have to point out to the extremists on either side of the Trump War on TBR, I am not a "Ever" or a "Never" Trump.  I'm a spectator here.  Well, maybe a little more, but not much.  Mrs. Liberty calls me the "loudmouth at the end of the bar."

I didn't vote for Romney and won't again if he should try for the presidency.  But I agree with you as to class.  This beating down by Trump of everyone that he doesn't like got old within a month of his presidency.  Almost 4 years later, this tactic is smelling to high heaven.  Instead of getting into Twitter squabbles with his enemies, real or imagined, Trump should be doing his job. I might have overlooked his reality tv fights if he had been a serious president, but why would I vote for him next year if he didn't do squat during his first term?

Trump and his fans have redefined the word "conservative" by throwing out the values you and I and so many other conservatives were raised with.  Instead of Trump practicing those same values and beliefs, the word has been altered to fit him.

I don't mind a president being a fighter -- in the sense of defending this country against hostile nations.  Lord knows, this country was weakened by eight years of Obama bowing down to our enemies.  But Trump wastes time on silly squabbles that do nothing but entertain his fans.  Meanwhile, like Obama, Trump cozies up to the likes of Kim and Putin.  This country has real enemies out there.  But Trump is too busy arguing with critics to deal effectively with those who want to destroy us.

I, for one, do not miss the days of GOP candidates folding up like cheap suits every time the Rats fling obvious lies at them.  It was Romney himself who filled the voters with anger and disgust when he caved to Candy Crowley's unethical criticism when he dared to accurately quote Obama re: Benghazi.  He not only failed to assert himself, he phoned in the rest of the entire campaign.

Romney his own self ensured the rise of a candidate like Donald Trump.  It's little wonder he takes Trump's style as a personal affront to himself, because it is.

So it's a calculated strategy.  Just what exactly has this "strategy" gotten him and the nation, besides the admiration of his adoring fans? 

Seems to me Romney is criticizing Trump for personal gain -- another run at the presidency perhaps?  Whatever it is, Trump is foolish to go off on Romney.  Basically, by responding in this way, Trump is playing into Romney's hands.  Might be more effective to just ignore the twerp.

It's hard turning a leviathan like the US government on a dime. It's harder for any president to do it virtually by himself against what Trump has been up against. In three years.

Anyone who thinks Trump has failed because he hasn't reversed certain trends, like illegal immigration, welfare, etc by now is being patently unfair, to put it gently. But he is winning some key battles in court, appointing decent judges and laying the legislative groundwork for further progress.

And it would be nice if the GOP stepped up at some point.

It's hard turning a leviathan like the US government on a dime. It's harder for any president to do it virtually by himself against what Trump has been up against. In three years.

Anyone who thinks Trump has failed because he hasn't reversed certain trends, like illegal immigration, welfare, etc by now is being patently unfair, to put it gently. But he is winning some key battles in court, appointing decent judges and laying the legislative groundwork for further progress.

And it would be nice if the GOP stepped up at some point.

 :amen:

FWIW, he's also starting to bring to light how corrupt the entrenched establishment really is. This may also be why we aren't seeing more push back from the Pubs.

   Good points all @skeeter

   But waiting on the GOP to step up is an exercise in futility.

I realize they've got just as big a stake in the status quo as do the rats. Frankly, I'm afraid it'll all just revert to form once he's gone. Maybe sooner.

Thank you. I like some of Trump's policies but this twitter war BS has go to stop. It is old and tiresome.  I remember when I was young that Decency was a Conservative value.

Amen and he isn't one to call anyone a pompous ass.  He is the definition.  I can't stand his childish tirades.  How could any foreign government take him seriously?  What is really funny is that he recently gave Romney his full support.

His judgment of "the best" has been very evidently not the best.  He fires most people he hires.  And most of them I wouldn't let step in my front door.  Not the liberal ones for sure.  Cohen, Amarosa, Bannon...………  And I sure wouldn't have liberal Kushner at the head of every decision.

What are you referring to -- the court challenges to Trump's EOs or the nomination of judges? 

If you're talking about the judicial nominees, I don't know yet whether these judges are good or bad.  Still too soon to tell.  I understand SCOTUS has several major issues this term
  Let's see how they rule on these matters before deciding whether the new guys are good or bad and whether Trump is a hero or a goat fir nominating them.

And if naming decent judges is all he's done in almost four years, well, that's not much of a track record.  Had he not wasted so much time on so many trivial matters, Trump might have accomplished a lot more.

The Republican president, who launched a stream of invective at Democrats and the media this week as an impeachment probe in Congress widened, tweeted that U.S. Senator Mitt Romney was a "pompous 'ass' who has been fighting me from the beginning."

Romney, who lost the 2012 election to Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama, criticized Trump on Friday for asking China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

First of all, RINOs is a misnomer.  The Republican Party has been moving left for some time.  these guys aren't Republican in name only.  They are the real Republican Party these days. 

Secondly, whether you like past Republican presidents or not, they did do more.  Maybe not what you or I would have wanted, but they did work.  They took their jobs seriously.  They didn't waste their time on frivolous squabbles, go golfing every other day or run around the country endlessly campaigning.  Starting with Obama, the presidency has become a do-nothing job.    Now Obama at least, being the community organizer he is, had others do his job for him.  The Democrats wanted Obamacare; they worked to get it.  But I don't see Trump having that.  And as for Obamacare, Obama sold that POS to the nation.  That was his role in it.  What is Trump's role in getting things done?  What is his job?  Apparently, nothing since he fritters away the hours on stupid *bleep* like this squabble. 

So please tell me -- how do Trump's endless Twitter wars benefit the nation?  What do they accomplish?  Have they fixed our illegal immigration crisis?  Have they rid us of Obamacare?  Have they given us meaningful tax reform?  Have they curbed this country's runaway spending?  Have they resulted in treaties with our friends or any meaningful agreements with our enemies? 

If you or I spent so much time tweeting BS all day, our employers would have fired us.  Since we voters are supposed to be the employers of the politicians we elect, we should be showing Trump and the rest of the Republican bums the door.    Why any voter would want to keep these lazy lumps around is beyond my comprehension.

Swine like the mud and have no use for pearls, or put another way, if the facts and arguments you are offering were recognizable to Trump supporters they would not be Trump supporters.

Your facts and logic are not factual or logical to Trump supporters.  Even the stuff we all watch with our own eyes.  They won't and can't see it the way we see it.  Just as you and I won't and can't see from their perspective.  I think this is because I'm right and they are stupid, insulting, and condescending.  And they think I'm wrong, stupid, insulting, and condescending because I refuse to see it their way.  This makes it hard to honestly debate the issues of the day.

Last week I watched President Trump, only days into an impeachment investigation for secretly soliciting a foreign government to dig up dirt on his political foe, publicly soliciting two foreign governments to dig up dirt on his political foe on TV.  Sen. Rubio saw Trump making a joke.  He said Trump was trolling the press (who fell for it again.)  Congressman Jim Jordan saw President Trump courageously rooting out Ukrainian corruption as he has a Constitutional right and duty to do.

It's very hard for me to see that POV when I don't want to, and I don't like it.

Ridicule has a long political history that precedes Alinsky.  @sneakypete ridicules because it is one of his strongest skills and it is very easy for him.  It is much easier than explaining his thoughts to someone who he believes, perhaps justifiably, doesn't want to hear his opinion or believe it, and will only disregard it and maybe call him Alinsky like.  I don't want to put words into his mouth, but I think this is what he is trying to say. 

@Applewood you are much better at the thoughtful, well crafted, logical arguments.  Why sweat @sneakypete 's insult "dumb it down?"  Today Pete replied to one of my posts with a comment about my mom's penis.  Change your attitude if you want a dialogue with @sneakypete .  Right now, he doesn't want to hear your opinion or believe it, and will he will only disregard it and call you worse than Alinski like.  Or you could find someone else to argue with.

There are good reasons for the president to get his message out on Twitter.

An illegitimate process is underway. Nancy Pelosi and the democrats are running a pretend impeachment where the media mine the proceedings for sensational headlines and dutifully push a narrative of “mounting evidence” of serious Trump wrongdoing.

What’s behind this? An anonymous informant (who is NOT a whistleblower)—a mid level CIA informant—making interpretations of something he claims he heard the president say, in other words, he was spying on the president during a conversation with a foreign leader, where the president was rightly doing his job.

And here you are telling the president how and where he should speak, on a platform where he dominates and his message is heard by millions—rather than being silenced and lied about by a duplicitous left wing media.

I’ll be generous here and say simply that you are wrong.

True,and the number 1 reason is he doesn't need the approval of the globalist media to do it,and they don't get to edit what he says. He can "speak" directly to the voters with no filters and no editing. There is a lot to be said about that in this day of corporate-controlled media.

And they are going to do their damndest to string this along right up to election day in order to sway the traditional "unaffiliated voters" to vote Dim.

I personally think Trump has a plan to pull a "Lucy" on them and like with Charley Brown,pull the football away just as they try to kick it.

Providing of course they don't just destroy each other before the election.

I saw up thread someone using the word ‘class’, noting neither Romney nor Trump sould be considered classy.

I disagree. The forces arrayed against Donald Trump are lawlessly conspiring and lying to the American people, using their positions in congress and in the bureaucracy to push an insane vendetta against Donald Trump because he beat Hillary. Trump knows this. Now they are trying to impeach him.

I’m sorry, but Presidential demeanor and acting all “classy” just isn’t gonna cut it. I don’t think using soothing diplomatic language will assuage their insanity nor lessen their intent to rid themselves of Donald Trump, this threat to their lucrative dominion.

It takes class to fight back hard when it seems the world is against you and you know you are right.
