Editorial: Romney failed once again leadership test (Birtherism)


Mitt Romney wants to have it both ways — he wants to distance himself from Donald Trump’s remarks on President Obama’s birth, but not from Trump himself.

Trump continues to push conspiracy theories about Obama’s birth.

On Tuesday, Trump once again embraced the discredited birther movement by declaring on CNBC that “there are some major questions here that the press doesn’t want to cover.”

“Nothing’s changed my mind,” Trump said, reaffirming his doubts about the president’s Hawaiian birth certificate. “I walk down the street and people are screaming, ‘Please don’t give that up.’”

In response, Romney sought to distance himself from the conspiracy comments while still embracing the man who made the remarks.

“You know, I don’t agree with all the people who support me, and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” Romney said. “But I need to get 50.1 percent or more, and I’m appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.”

1. Notice all he cares about is winning, 50.1 percent or more remark

shows that. Which is also wrong since the Electoral College comes into play.

2. He looks at the Presidency

the way my dog looks at a squirrel, wants it BAD, but if he ever got it, would have no idea what to do then.

3. Romney has proven time and time again that he can be lead around by the nose

by any group that will further his quest for power. They control him and his "message" and his "plan" is subject to change. He cannot be trusted.

4. Trump does it to jerk the teabaggeratti awake again

And I suspect he wants very badly to get even with Obama for the massive ego crushing Correspondents' Dinner steamrolling he got from Obama.
