Huffington Post, March 3, 2016: Mitt Romney Lambasts Donald Trump As A 'Phony' And 'Fraud' In Blistering Speech
Mitt Romney, playing the role of party elder and statesman jumped into "Trump land" today blasting Donald Trump:
"Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud," he said at the University of Utah. "His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat."
There's more, but that's one of the lines being highlighted by the media. It was a formal carefully planned speech read from a teleprompter. Of course there are other Republicans speaking out as a part of the Stop Trump movement. It just goes to show what lengths the party establishment is going to stop Trump from winning the nomination.
I wonder, though, that at this late date if Romney is offering up himself as the alternative nominee if Trump has not obtained 50 percent of the delegates by convention time. At a contested convention there are several rounds of voting in which delegates are no longer bound to their candidate from the primaries or caucuses.
The Republican establishment hates Ted Cruz almost as much as they hate Trump. And Rubio is a light weight. Only Kasich is left, but he faired so poorly since entering the contest a long time ago, he will also be regarded as weak.
So Mitt Romney rides in on his "white horse" to save the day.
Just a wild thought...
