Skip to comments.Thirteen Undiplomatic Statements by Mitt Romney About Donald Trump
Posted on 11/28/2016 7:12:34 AM PST by detective
Failed 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney is lobbying to be picked as Donald Trumps Secretary of State, so perhaps Trumps team should review all of Romneys undiplomatic statements from 2015 and 2016 about the future Commander in Chief.

Romney has shown he is not to be trusted.
IMO, considering Romney for any position of significance in a Trump administration is an unwise move.
Wow I knew Romney is awful but I did not know just how much garbage he had spewed to try to derail the Trump Train.
Romneykins must not be SofS, or anything else in this admin. I hope and pray that Trump is merely toying with him.
And in regards to what Romney may,or may not have said in the past...what's past is past.Ditto for what DJT may have said about Romney.
We must all remember that the definition of "diplomacy" is the ability to tell a man to go to hell in such a way as to make him look forward to the trip.
And no...I am not,and never have been,a "never Trumper".
That's certainly possible...but not necessarily true.Now that Trump has won it's possible that Romney has come to accept that and in accepting it he just might be of use to Trump.Of course the Rats (and David Brooks) will *never* accept Trump but that doesn't mean others who once opposed him won't.
Trump needs to take him at his word.
Romney is the front man for the Mormon "Mafia" which has significant influence in the FBI and CIA.
Perhaps Trump should widen his search for SOS, just a wee bit.
I’m starting to think we have no idea who Trump has tapped as SOS. :-)
Was Romney lying in 2012, or was he lying in 2016? The man has publicly shown that he has not an ounce of personal integrity.
Perhaps it’s time “they” choose a new front man. Romney is too much like the other one, Reid. Same product, slightly different label.
I don’t excuse but understand how one candidate for President might say intemperate things about another candidate. However, the reason I oppose Romney for SoS is simply because he has never shown a sufficient commitment to liberty and the free market. As nice a fellow as he may be, his RomneyCare destroys liberty and imposes unacceptable socialistic government policy in the private lives of (formerly free) citizens. RomneyCare was used to validate ObamaCare.
They are probably considering Mike Lee.
I don’t think Michelle Moons realizes that what she is watching play out right now is the public shaming of Mitt Romney by Trump.
“I oppose Romney for SoS is simply because he has never shown a sufficient commitment to liberty and the free market.”.......
If Romney was any good, he would have been POTUS long ago, then why consider recycling him as SoS? He’s still a loser.
I am quite sure there are a large number of people in the FBI and CIA who would be surprised to know what you are claiming.
Romney has NO BUSINESS even being considered for this post....hopefully is was just a show to Trump.
Him, or perhaps Jason Chaffetz. He has had a good conservative record. He is so committed to being ultra right. I like a guy who is concerned about how the government spends my money.
Meanwhile, after pussygate broke, Jason Chaffetz couldn’t wait to run to a microphone and disavow Donald Trump.
A “wall” isnt going to work - there are bulldozers and ladders in Mexico.
The biggest problem is the first sentence of Amendment XIV:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
That needs to be amended out of the Constitution.
Birthright citizenship may have been appropriate 150 years ago, but it creates millions of problems in the 21st Century - US children with illegal foreign parents.
What I suggest is:
The first sentence of Amendment XIV is hereby repealed.
Every child born in the USA after April 30, 2017 shall be born with the citizenship of their mother as of 10 months prior to giving birth.
No foreigner may be granted US citizenship unless the foreigner is over age 22 and has paid United States federal income tax in excess of the value of one ounce of gold on personal US earnings in each of the prior four years.
[Thats to make it impractical/impossible for Democrats to give a scofflaw mom or her newborn US citizenship.]
[Why use mom’s citizenship? Because we don’t want one male US citizen sperm daddy in search of easy money to create hundreds or even thousands of US children with foreign mothers.]
