Mitt Romney's Top Strategist Says Hillary Clinton Would Be A Better President Than Donald Trump

The Republican Party's top strategist in the 2012 election would rather see Hillary Clinton as the next president than Donald Trump.

"Personally, I think Hillary Clinton would be a better president than Donald Trump because I think that Donald Trump is a dangerous person and is someone who would embarrass America," Stuart Stevens, who advised 2012 nominee Mitt Romney, said Tuesday on Bloomberg's "With All Due Respect."

"I have no desire to see Hillary Clinton as president of the United States," he added. "But if this is the choice -- I will not give her my vote, but I can't support Donald Trump."

Stevens joins a growing number of Republicans who are speaking out and pledging not to back Trump if he wins the GOP nomination. Rep. Scott Rigell (R-Va.) emailed supporters Tuesday and said he refuses to back someone "so lacking in the judgement, temperament and character needed to be our nation's commander-in-chief." Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) said he will look for a third-party candidate if Trump makes it to the general election.

EDIT: I appear to be guilty of Failure To Communicate, as some of your responses seem to evince a belief that I support Romney and/or Stevens. NO. I voted for Obama in 2012, just as I had in 2008, and will be voting for his "third term," i.e., Secretary Clinton, in November. My apologies for any misunderstanding.

21. Yes. Met a very sad end.

There's legitimate speculation on whether her suicide was actually a suicide. She pissed off the Mob.

4. That's setting the bar mighty low, doncha think?

Personally, I think Monty Hall would be a better president, too.
Granted, he was born in Canada, but apparently that's no longer considered a problem.

Republican specialty.

They clearly could not care less about America, unless they can make huge profits off of it.

At least they wear flag pins.

7. Mitt Romney's place in the history books will always be, well,...nonexistent.

 

He probably just wanted to read his name in the news one more time. He and Trump would matched set, come to think of it. Trump is the smarter of the two, and far less evil, though, I have to say. Trump is just a PT Barnum of politics. Mittens is more like the Jeffery Dahmer...

The real question should be who isn't more qualified... Ted Cruz is less qualified, Dumbya Bush might be

What's up with the snarky jab at Sanders?

12. Hillary is naturally the choice

for establishment Republicans and Democrats, the corporate elite and the very wealthy, the military industries, the private prison industries, the neoconservative think tanks, and just about everyone whom real Democrats despise.

I'm not sure why Hillary's supporters think these accolades from establishment conservatives is a good thing lol.

14. republican gamesmanship.....

or is that gamespersonship?

There is a scripted chorus emerging from the leadership to try to derail the bozo. They just picked hillary cuz she is the frontrunner.

It's really meant to scare the base. I can't believe for one minute they won't all become chris christie once the coronation takes place.

And it's a wonderful sight.......

24. Republicans Will Flock to Her Side

Clinton will attract many Republican votes, she is Republican Lite plus a Neocon Foreign Policy. For them, what's not to love? She may even give the 99% a few crumbs to keep them quiet. Perfect solution.
