In 2012 I wrote a blog post nailing down the reason the republicans wanted Romney to run against Obama: so Obama would win. And he did. Its the same reason why the republicans ran 16 people besides Trump–all of them would have lost to Hillary Clinton. Trump was the only one who could beat Clinton as he was unknown and unpredictable. The democrats could not win against him even with their massive, and known, vote fraud.
The GOP elite never wanted to beat the democrats and haven’t wanted to for a long time. As long as they can beat their chests and whine about the democrats, and not actually do anything they can participate in the graft…so they are just fine letting democrats win.
The election in 2012 against Obama should have been won. It was Romney’s to lose and he lost it. But hey, when dogs nationwide are against you…
And I thought that was the end of the story with Romney. His “reward” for running and willingly losing the election, though, was Paul Ryan as speaker, through which his Bain Capital was bailed out along with the Puerto Rico bailout pushed by Ryan.
But here he is again, and in a most interesting situation, is probably having a daily diet eating crow since he met with Trump. I don’t think the body language in the video of him leaving the meeting looked positive about any position. I hear he is preparing an apology to Trump and his supporters because he’s interested in the job, but I don’t think that will convince anyone he is sincere. Romney’s attacks on Trump went to his person, his integrity, and his honor.
Romney and the #nevertrumpers almost blew it for the American people, the “republicans” and Trump; actively supported all of Trump’s opponents; and probably would have been in the Clinton administration. Remember this cabal of people in the photo. Romney and Ryan still want the presidency. Placing Romney anywhere near SoS position will enable the GOPe to have an alternative route around Trump. However, President Elect Trump would not have made it this far without knowing that this drama and intrigue is underway.
So there is a much larger strategy underway that we don’t know in floating Romney out there as secretary of state. We can observe that it has caused an informative reaction across the spectrum which is very interesting to watch….and there seems to be something strategic going on, discussed in the video below.
I don’t think the nation can afford two presidents… as losers seem to try to create their own kingdoms.
