Go get 'em Donald!!!

January 24, 2015 by Matthew Burke

Speaking at the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday, Donald Trump gave a rousing speech, telling attendees to loud applause and cheers that neither Jeb Bush nor Mitt Romney should be the Republican nominee for the presidency in 2016.

Trump began by lambasting 2012 GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, who we were all told by establishment Republicans was the “most electable” candidate, similar to other “electable” establishment darlings like Bob Dole and John McCain.

“The 47 percent statement that he made, that’s not going away. The Romneycare from Massachusetts, it’s not going away. You think they’re going to say, ‘Oh, we wont bring that up this time’?” Trump asked rhetorically about a potential third Romney run at the Oval Office.

Trump continued to hit Romney for choking during the final weeks of the campaign, saying that a failed Obama presidency should have been easy to defeat. Romney was significantly ahead in the last weeks of the 2012 campaign and was accused of going soft towards the end of the campaign, failing to attack Obama on issues like the Benghazi coverup. Trump followed up by asserting that Romney is incapable of “closing the deal.”

“But more importantly, he choked,” Trump contended, speaking of Romney. “Something happened to him in the last month. He had that election won. Let me tell you something. That election — sort of like a dealmaker that can’t close the deal. I know many of those guys. They get it up to the one yard line, they go [panicking] ‘aaawwwaaa,’ and can’t close it.”

Trump predicted that the 2016 presidential election will be tougher than that of 2012, when beating a failed Obama should have been easy.

“You can’t have Bush,” said the outspoken Trump, turning his attention to former Republican Governor Jeb Bush, as the crowd erupted in thunderous shouts of “No!” “The last thing we need is another Bush,” he stated.

“He’s totally in favor of Common Core; that’s a disaster,” Trump said about Bush’s infamous position, while saying that education decisions should be returned to the local level.

Trump then delivered a jab to Jeb for his support on amnesty, his notorious comment that foreign invaders were coming to America illegally out of “love.”

“He’s very, very weak on immigration. Don’t forget, remember his statement, ‘They come for love,’” Trump quipped. “What? Come for love? You’ve got these people coming — half of them are criminals, I mean, they’re coming for love? They’re coming for a lot of other reasons,” Trump said.

Yes, even if he just serves to bash Milt, JEB, and even Crispie, it will be worth it.

Too bad some the Ga-Ga Pubbie idiots need reminding of the obvious.

I am convinced Romney threw that one debate. Was it the last one, where every single sentence began with "I agree with the President on that"?? I remember that they were sitting down.

I ran out of shoes to throw at the television.

Honest to God, a two-year old could have handled it better.

Why it matters that Donald Trump is attacking Mitt Romney Christian Science Monitor by Mark Sappenfield

The Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday was a platform for conservatives considering a run for president, and Donald Trump was on the attack. It hinted at what lies ahead.
With all due respect, the Republican Party could probably do with a lot less of what was heard at the Iowa Freedom Summit Saturday.

On one hand, that might seem strange, considering that the Iowa Freedom Summit was all about getting America back to its "core principles of pro-growth economics, social conservatism, and a strong national defense," according to the event website.

What could be more Republican than that?
snip
But then Donald Trump spoke.
He called Mitt Romney a "choker" for losing the 2012 presidential race to President Obama, and then said that Jeb Bush's brother – former President George W. Bush – was the man who gave America Mr. Obama in the first place.

Wow.

Democrats would call that a two-fer. In one fell swoop, Mr. Trump brutally exposed the potentially fatal weaknesses of the two Republicans who might well have broader appeal than any others on the presumptive Republican ticket (New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie possibly excluded).
