    The political-media establishment has provided more than a few tempting targets to push back on in the past 48 hours, but nothing rankles me more than the sudden nostalgia liberal Democrats are heaping on Mitt Romney. Trump has inspired some sort of Romney renaissance among the left, openly telling Republicans and the media how much they admired and respected the last Republican candidate; that he was at least fit to lead! As an operative who worked on Mitt Romneys presidential campaign, I can tell you that this hilariously bogus argument from the left lacks even a modicum of self-awareness. Yet...

    Former Republican nominee Mitt Romney said earlier this month he thought Donald Trump could win the presidency, citing Hillary Clintons high unfavorable numbers and the unpredictability of the race. Romney was speaking with Republican consultant Mike Murphys Radio Free GOP podcast released two weeks ago when he made the comments. You have to give Donald Trump credit, he was able to bring a rhetoric and a style that he had perfected over his career to the political sphere and connect with people and become the nominee, Romney said. Despite the fact that I and a lot of other people thought...

    Via Red State, Romney already said hed take a look at Johnson in an interview with CNN last month (excerpted in the clip below) but that was hypothetical and qualified by concerns over libertarian support for legal weed. Johnson and Weld are telling you now that things are in motion. Does Romney have anything to lose at this point by going the whole nine yards and endorsing a third-party candidate? Hes already gone eight yards in refusing to back Trump, and he saw what sort of reception Ted Cruz got for the lesser offense of politely avoiding an endorsement. Any...

    Donald Trump can be an effective president, and he's going to win with you or without you, Republican Chairman Reince Priebus told several hundred of the party's top donors and strategists Saturday. Trump is setting a dangerous example for Americans by promoting "trickle-down racism," and the party must look beyond this presidential election to find its future, the 2012 nominee Mitt Romney told the same group later that morning. Delivered within moments of each other at Romney's annual business and politics summit at a five-star ski resort, those opposite messages were enough to cause whiplash. That's a hazard of being...

"Ted Cruz was basically praising Donald Trump through the whole process," Romney told discussion host and CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer. And Kasich was in well after the time...

Now, with Trump as the GOP nominee, those same Republican fundraisers, business titans and longtime friends of Romney are back to huddle far from Trump Tower. Attendees caution that Romney's annual summit -- The Experts and Enthusiasts, or E2, retreat -- is not an exclusive conclave for the #NeverTrump movement. Yet it is the closest thing...

    It was two weeks before Election Day when Mitt Romney's political director signed a memo that all but ridiculed the notion that the Republican presidential nominee, with his better ground game could lose the key state of Ohio or the election. The race is unmistakably moving in Mitt Romney's direction, the memo said. But the claims proved wildly off the mark, a fact embarrassingly underscored when the high-tech voter turnout system that Romney himself called state of the art crashed at the worst moment, on Election Day. To this day, Romneys aides wonder how it all went so wrong...

Clinton noted at a New Jersey campaign rally that Trump had yet to release his tax returns and said he would slash taxes for the nation's wealthiest people if elected president. Hours later, Romney issued a withering post on Facebook, accusing Trump of hiding a damaging revelation in his tax returns. "There is only one logical explanation for Mr. Trump's refusal to release his returns: there is a bombshell in them," Romney...

Romney didnt seek Trump's endorsement because he thought it was worth having so much as he wanted to prevent Trump from making a disruptive kamikaze run. By sidelining Trump, Romney kept Trump's politics from entering the nation's bloodstream for another four years. If only today's Republican leaders could have done the same.

By contrast, the party's nominee in 2012, Mitt Romney, didnt reach 49 percent in a poll until mid-April of that year. As YouGovs William Jordan noted, Romneys highest polling number prior to that was 40 percent, which he achieved once in mid-January 2012 and once at the end of February. Support for Trump has been over 40 percent in the last four national polls, and flirted with the 40 percent mark in some polls in early December. Single polls...

    During a phoned-in appearance on Fox News Wednesday afternoon, 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney dropped a big ole’ a dirty bomb on Donald Trump. Speaking to Neil Cavuto, Romney said, without any evidence, that he has “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes.” As someone who suffered through every moment of Romney’s feckless presidential campaign, the first thing I thought to myself was “Where the hell was this killer when we needed him most?” Listen, I have no issue with Romney dropping a dirty bomb, especially on a Donald Trump who is the master...

    Donald Trump fired back at former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for wondering Wednesday if a "bombshell" was sitting in his unreleased tax returns. Fresh off his victory in Nevada, Trump fired off a trio of tweets at Romney, calling him a "fool" and a "tough guy" for his attack, adding that he should have beaten President Obama as the Republican nominee in 2012. >>>Donald J.

    Tripwire Alert – Understanding Why Mitt Romney is Making Ridiculous Claims About Donald Trump’s Taxes…. Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney is going “full Mississippi” with claims about Donald Trump’s taxes.  It doesn’t matter that there is no basis for the ridiculous assertions – the truth and/or facts are not what matters when you go “full Mississippi”…. it’s a strategy! The absolute worst thing Donald Trump could do is to respond to it.  Responding to the provocation is exactly what they want.  Dismiss it like you would swat an annoying gnat.

    Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney stated that Republican presidential candidates Donald Trump, Texas Senator Sen. Ted Cruz(R-TX), and Florida Senator Sen. Marco Rubio(R-FL) ought to release their taxes for “the last two years that have already been filed” and that there’s “good reason to believe that there’s a bombshell in Donald Trump’s taxes” on Wednesday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel. Romney began by saying that both Trump and Democratic candidate Senator Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) were connecting with voters who were upset with the Washington, which hasn’t made progress. He added, “I think there’s...

    Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will endorse Sen. Marco Rubio, the Huffington Post reports. The details of the endorsement are being worked out. It's ironic since Romney, who was largely an absentee governor in the last nine months of his administration, is endorsing someone who didn't bother showing up for work in the Senate that much. "Romney spent the day in Utah on Saturday and could potentially be in position to bestow his blessing upon Rubio before Tuesday's Nevada Republican caucuses-a contest that Romney won easily in both 2008 and 2012." "Romney's backing will provide Rubio with the highest-profile endorsement...

    The Seven Stages of Grief are usually rendered as shock, denial, bargaining, guilt, anger, depression, and acceptance. The GOP Establishment’s emotional train is just pulling into Depression Station, and it will tarry there awhile before chugging reluctantly on to Grand Acceptance Junction. Oh, they might never really accept Donald Trump’s emergence as the Republican nominee – quite a few of them are deadly serious about sabotaging the election and throwing political control of the United States to Democrats in perpetuity, if Trump wins the primaries. What they’ll never accept is that the Trump phenomenon is real, and it says more...
