Romney Lays Out the Path to Victory

Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican nominee for president and a leading critic of Trump’s campaign, showed why he lost an election that by all rights he should have won with his speech last Thursday in Salt Lake City.

He says of Trump: “His domestic policies would lead to recession.” Message to Romney: We are and have been in a recession since 2007! It has been this administration’s policies, funded by Republicans that have caused this. The only bright spot has been in the energy sector, this in spite of government policy, not because of it. Yet still, if you listen to the Washington economic elite, this is a bad thing for business. It is bad for the stock market. Well, if you look around, while the stock market had been booming, 94 million people stopped looking for work. Of that, 50 million were women. Black youth unemployment has been 50 percent. Like all Washington establishment believe, if it is good for people, it is bad for Washington and their contributors, so it must be a bad thing. What exactly, Mr. Romney, in The Donald’s policies could possibly make this worse?

Romney went on to say: “His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe.” Less safe than what? Now? You mean to say that by putting restriction on our borders until we get a handle on who exactly is coming here would actually make us less safe? Do you mean to say his polices would lead to ISIS taking control of Syria, Lybia and Iraq? Wow! Who knew that this administration was following Trump’s policies all along?

Then, using Democrat talking points, Romney says: “His coddling of repugnant bigotry is not in the character of America.” Trump has been repudiating David Duke and the KKK since 2000, when Trump left the Reform Party (the party created by Ross Perot) after Duke said he was a member. Typical of Romney, he goes after Republican conservatives instead of Democrats. Why do you think he lost? Instead of going after Trump on some made up allegation that has no basis in fact, why did he not instead ask why Hillary Clinton won’t disavow the race-baiting Al Sharpton instead of going on bended knee looking for his endorsement? Why did he not ask why Hillary does not disavow Black Lives Matter, which is responsible for inflaming racial tensions based on false narratives?

Worse, why did he not use this presser to educate people about the real KKK? This organization was created as the military arm of the Democrat Party after the Civil War to intimidate white people and stop blacks from exercising their newfound freedoms. Why did he not point out that Hillary herself (and the YouTube post is out there) embraced the late West Virginia Sen. Robert Byrd, saying she looked upon him as her mentor? Robert Byrd was the former senate majority leader in the ‘80s. In his youth he was a kleagle in the KKK, meaning he was a recruiter. Yet, according to Romney, Trump has the racist tendencies.

He goes on to explain that he understands the anger that the national electorate feels; the anger that has led to Trump’s rise within the party. Gag me with a spoon. He still does not understand the anger Republicans still feel about him and the pathetic campaign he ran against Obama. He still does not understand the Republican voters are sick and tired of having their leaders going after them instead of Democrats, and why their leaders do not use the same passion to defeat Democrats instead of Republican conservatives.

I told you if Trump supporters break the Super Tuesday firewall, the establishment would go nuts. You have their new candidate, Rubio, doing Don Rickles impressions. Now, you have the loser of 2012 telling us who we need to vote for to win. We were also told by this same establishment that Romney, the father of Obamacare, was the only one who could beat Obama. You saw how that worked out. The Republican base is saying “screw you!” You gave us President McCain. You gave us President Romney. You disavowed us. You gave the Democrats a pass and beat us up. Now, it is our turn. Right or wrong, we are going to do it our way. We already know your way is the path to defeat.

We are also not fooled by you. We know that if Trump were not in the race and leading, you would be doing this to Cruz.

This is what I say. What say you?

What Is Cambridge Analytica?

Cambridge Analytica is a research organization. Apparently, it is funded by the Mercer family, second only to the Koch brothers on the liberal hit list. Both, through their philanthropy, spend millions on various needy organizations like hospitals. What makes them liberal targets is their funding of various conservative think tanks and candidates. I digress.

Trump Dumps on Amazon; I Dump on Trump

President Trump attacked the online retail giant Amazon earlier this month, accusing the behemoth corporation of paying “little or no taxes to state and local governments,” and taking advantage of the United States Postal Service and “causing tremendous loss to the U.S.”  

Not true! Since April 2017, Amazon has collected sales taxes in all states that levy ...

‘Sister Act’: A Musical Like Nun Other

Of all the Broadway musicals I’ve seen over the years at Westchester Broadway Theatre, only a handful have elicited the noisily enthusiastic audience response I observed at the recent opening night of “Sister Act.”

There were outbursts of applause in the middle of some numbers, and several clever turns of phrase sprinkled in the dialogue landed squarely, to the delight of big ...

Seen Any Good Ol’ Movies Lately?

As I become more, uh, mature, I find myself enjoying older movies more than newer movies. The trio of films presented here for your consideration are three of my all-time favorites. They share great stories, great screenplays, great directing, great acting. They also have in common ratings in the 90s on Rotten Tomatoes, and a place of distinction in the National Film Registry, a highly selective ...

Cleaning the Empty Nest

Part of the shock of being a part-time empty nester is when the kids come back to visit and I have to watch my house transform overnight from a pristine haven of OCD goodness to a place that looks like an explosion happened at Forever 21.

After my kids moved mostly out, I put away whatever tchotchkes they chose to leave behind and then I put on a hazmat suit and cleaned their rooms until they ...

Tipping the Scales in My Favor

As I was settling into bed one night, I happened to catch my husband out of the corner of my eye.

He was getting on the scale.

“WHAT ARE YOU DOING?” I yelled at him. He jerked his head around and looked at me with alarm.

“What? I’m weighing myself.”

I jumped out of bed and yanked him off the scale. 

“You can’t do that now!” I ...
