After following this courtship of Trump and Romney, I just cannot see the objective. Everything seems clouded by chaos and that aroma of elitism.
I can’t understand an appointment to Secretary of State for Romney. There are other places he could be squeezed into. Like a cabinet of commerce to focus on jobs.
Secretary of State? He does not have the foreign policy experience with all these countries. He could be a turn around guy but not the scope of State department.
Now that he is dug in so deep as the front runner, it would be hard to not pick him.
Democrats are almost giddy about his choice. But they had nothing but contempt for Romney in 2012. They had him exporting jobs and selling out America all over the world. His dog is still on top of that station wagon going down the highway. Now they have such admiration for Romney in 2016. They’re waxing nostalgia about him.
What about those confirmation hearings? Every statement he made about Trump will play on a loop and Dems can do what they do best, push an alternative reality. That is probably the reason they are happy. Romney will have to answer for every one of those comments, which Dems agree with. Repubs will be forced to defend Mittens as an all-star choice.
Remember State is one of Dems’ favorite departments. What a circus that will be. So that gives them all the ammo to undermine Trump’s legitimacy. Dems whole plan is to start to defrock Trump from the beginning. Romney is cut from central casting to play a lead role. Of course Mitt doesn’t care about being used by the Left. He has been their willing pawn all along. Useful idiot comes to mind.
Maybe it is supposed to remove him from the bleachers and the 2020 lineup? I don’t see either. Maybe it is a setup for ‘good cop bad cop’? I don’t see a benefit to Romney.
So I have some real mixed feelings about Mittens turning State Department hero.
