But there were rising GOP “stars” Chris Christie, Paul Ryan and Rand Paul lining up to be feted at a Romney retreat earlier this summer. But earlier this month there was Romney urging Republicans not to defund Obamacare, which don’t forget was actually Romney’s horrible idea before Obama’s. Instead, Romney urged the Republican Party to “rally around electable candidates.”
You can’t make this stuff up.
Dan Balz of The Washington Post was recently on my show to discuss his new book Collision 2012 about last year’s presidential election. In the book, Balz said the Romney family took a poll about dad running for president in 2012 and Willard himself wasn’t in favor of running. Romney didn’t want to run, but now he just can’t stay away. Romney has now officially flip-flopped on everything.
A man that wants to portray himself as a reluctant warrior has become a zit that won’t pop. And he’s not alone. Whether it’s Bob Dole or John “little ball of hate” McCain, several past GOP nominees have come out of the woodwork to provide their unsolicited un-sage advice on why the GOP has lost the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections. And what do Romney, McCain, and Dole have in common?
They’re all losers. They’re all men a majority of the American people rejected when they had the chance to select them as commander-in-chief. So here’s a simple question: if the “advice” these guys are giving is so good then why didn’t they win?
Of course, nobody in the mainstream media will ask such a question because these are the standard-bearers for the Republican Party they want—lovable losers. Not to mention the party establishment each of these men represents and the mainstream media have a common foe.
