Mitt Romney: The Dumbest Smart Person?

Original Article

Posted By: Magnante, 1/30/2020 5:19:34 AM

There's a great line from the movie I, Robot that often springs to mind when it comes to politicians. (snip) "You are the dumbest smart person I know!" "Dumbest smart person" should be engraved on an award. Mitt Romney and the three other Republicans considering calling witnesses in President Trump's impeachment trial would be the final four. Clearly, Romney, Collins, Murkowski, and Alexander are all smart people. They're successful. They've managed to get elected to the Senate. Romney himself is a near-billionaire in his own right. But they are willfully blind to the obvious-to-everyone-else tactics of the Democrats.

Or is Romney just the most envious bitter contrarian of all? The others are just virtue signaling fools who get attention because the media loves rogue Republicans. The advice the author gives should be heeded, vote to acquit because the Articles of Impeachment brought forth are unconstitutional. Game, set, match. Do not give them any opportunity to drag this fiasco out indefinitely. They have already done too much damage to the country.

To me, he appears almost pathologically self-centered, though he tries to cover it up most of the time. But, only a deeply self-centered person would consider putting a personal payback ahead of the welfare of his Country.

People like Romney and the others go into politics for two reasons: 1. That’s where the money is, and 2. They are ill equipped to do anything else requiring a skill set.

Why concede that Romney is smart? Sure, he was elected Senator and is a billionaire businessman, but he was born wealthy. His Father was George Romney, chairman and President of American Motors, Governor of Michigan, HUD secretary under Nixon. Mittens was born with more money than many of us will ever see cumulatively in our entire lifetimes. His career in business was consisted of selling junk bonds to take over productive companies, then selling off the components for a profit. I just don't buy this axiom that he is "smart".

WHY would the voters in their States reward them by voting them back in next election? I would think that they should worry about that when contemplating voting against the wishes of the voters who put them in that Senate Seat. I would send my last dollar to those states to see the Fab Four voted out of office. They do not deserve to be called Republicans. Instead of Romney "voting his conscience" he should be voting for the people he serves!

The premise that all consultants are smart is wrong. They just have the talent of convincing people that they are and use the current buzzwords. As for Romney, nice try but No. He lost a debate to a drug-addled kenyan who was prepared to go to a fund raiser in Vegas and that was all he was prepared for. Any good high-school debating team could have embarrassed either one of them.

Everybody is labeled "STUPID" by someone, and it's not usually a friend. And we know not everyone is indeed stupid. PDT, Pelosi, Biden, Mitt... Politics is an ugly undertaking. It involves calculations and motivations that go unsaid or unnoticed. The conflict is always portrayed simply, left vs right, Dem vs GOP, lib vs conservative. It makes heroes/enemies of us all, depending on point of view. Who called who "deplorables"? Mitt is doing what's in Mitt's best interests. He is the UNIPARTY's boy, and he is champing at the bit to challenge PDT for the nomination -- or at least deny him another term. He's not alone. The UNIPARTY wants PDT gone by January '21. But the numbers aren't flowing in that direction. And Mitt is getting impatient. Don't discount a Mitt-led "third party" moderate Republican (RINO) run in November to at least split the vote in key states.

FTA: "But they are willfully blind to the obvious-to-everyone-else tactics of the Democrats. Romney especially — as a businessman — should know better.... But they are willfully blind to the obvious-to-everyone-else tactics of the Democrats.... It is not about impeaching Trump." I have completely lost patience with the idea that Mitt Romney is a dupe in all of this. That he is somehow being tricked into playing the Democrats game. That he is being deceived. Mitt Romney knows exactly what he's doing: intentionally damaging our President. He is not blind to the Democrats' strategy; he is part of it. He's participating in it willingly, knowingly. Romney re-entered politics to be the crucial GOP voice and vote validating dishonest Democrat narratives. In Mitt's mind, it IS about removing President Trump from office and restoring his father's Republican Party. In other words, it's about rescuing his daddy's GOPe from us. Mitt Romney came back to attack and, if possible, destroy President Trump. He's not being deceived by the Democrats; he's been deceiving us. Fortunately, the small group of OABRs (Original "Anyone But Romney"), ably led by 'Himself and others has now grown into a Greek chorus on this site. No serious L-Dotter dares claim that Mitt Romney is on anyone side but Mitt's. The days of establishment reassurances that "Governor Romney will be a fine Senator" are long gone. The last functioning Romneybot appears only periodically, and appears completely confused when he does. I would grant him the alabi that it is sometimes hard to see co-religionists clear, except that the estimable Straitpath saw through Romney decades ago and saw that he clearly was not a conservative. Romney's number is up with us. Now we need to make sure the numbers are with us when he comes up for re-election in Utah.

Nothing smart at all about Romney. He is a self serving, finger in the wind, no core principles sleaze bag. He is the stereotypical politician, and Utah should hang their heads in shame for electing him. He is a big league crook who hasn't been caught yet, and so is his son.

Mitt Romney has no concept of the Average American worker or business man. President Donald Trump who grew up in a middle class borough of Queens, knows and respects the forgotten average American. Sure, his father helped get the young Donald started in Real Estate. First by putting him charge of some of his properties. Then he helped him financially with either a loan or a check...not sure which. The ambitious and very smart son knew what he wanted and went straight to Manhattan and won the bid on a run down hotel near Grand Central Station. He was 27 yo with a burning desire and a savvy brilliance as a deal maker. Against the many naysayers at the time, he turned that property into a huge success. Donald Trump became the talk of NYC and from that point forward, the rest is history. He may have gotten a helping hand to start out, but his success came from his vision and a lot of hard work as we see demonstrated everyday as our esteemed hard working President. His story is absolutely amazing. Even though he became a phenom in real estate, he was always accessible to his employees and treated everyone with respect. Mitt Romney can't shine President Trump's shoes.
