Meh

Look, it's still a reasonably free country, and Mitt Romney can say whatever he wants. I don't disagree with all of the points he made against Trump in his speech the other day.

But in spite of the fact that Mitt has demonstrated considerable smarts as a businessman, and he's a decent guy, he's always come across, in the political arena, as a kind of doofus. And I certainly think this is a fair question: "Why Didn’t Mitt Romney BRUTALLY Blast Obama Like He Did Trump?" For that matter, why didn't he actually endorse one of the other Republican presidential candidates before now? This is a basic fact about RINOs: their most fervent, genuine contempt is reserved for people in their party who don't accept the GOP establishment's estimate of its own worth.

Not just their estimate of their own worth, but their estimate of their own brilliance. I think Cruz, or Trump, could easily beat Hillary, except for the GOPe doing their best to screw things up once again. They'll probably turn a probable landslide into an improbable defeat.

Yeah, very selective. Very patronising, "they" know what's good for "us".

If the GOP leadership hasn't become oligarchs, they certainly are on the fast track.

I never understood how Obama could win a second term, even against Mitt Romney (who I was convinced had a chance). Well, he lost, and he should go away now. He's not being helpful.

Right now, I'd say, they're the servants of the Oligarchs.
