Quote of the day: Romney’s failed attack on Trump

Analysis: True — If Romney had shown the passion against Obama that he now shows against Trump, he would have been elected president in 2012. Mitt Romney started a dialogue with his wide ranging, at times, uncharacteristically personal attack on Trump.

Rubio is Romney Redux

Politico: At every campaign stop, Marco Rubio calls it “the biggest lie in American politics” — the notion that Republicans are the party of the super wealthy, and hopelessly out of touch with the working class and minorities.

It’s at Where’s Mitt? by Michael Walsh. A sample: The more I ponder the chimerical presidential campaign of Mitt Romney, the more I’ve become convinced it was all a practical joke played on gullible suckers by the GOP’s krack kadre of kampaign konsultants, a phantom “run” designed to hoover as much money out of the fat cats’ wallets…

Why Romney lost — America goes into the darkness

Melanie Phillips points to Obama’s agenda to increase the power of the state over the citizen at home, and to neutralise American power abroad.  Then she nails Romney’s loss to his failure to understand any of this, to confront it and tell voters why they should reject it: Romney lost because he refused to provide an alternative…
