Now Mitt Romney is attacking Bernie Sanders

Source: Salon

Asked his thoughts on the tightening delegate battle between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders on the Democratic side, Romney called Sanders “an authentic guy, an honest guy,” but “incredibly misguided.”

“What Bernie Sanders knows is simply wrong,” Romney continued. “He’s not gonna help people come out of poverty, he’s not gonna build a strong middle class with policies that have been a failure around the world.”

Mitt Romney is planning to enter the race, in June, and he just got a wake up call.

It is a fact that Mitt's family has taken control of Michigan Republican party (after he lost his "home" state, in 2012), with a niece now the head thereof. But all the plans of mice and men, are to no avail, when polls had Hillary ahead by double digits, and she lost Michigan.

Sanders v Romney, in the general election, would be a clear, super, win, for our side, as they are polar opposites.

So I have to livestream anything worth listening to, without the internet I'd have access to nothing but mormon/GOP brainwashing... which is what NPR has become for the most part these days. But I can't stand to listen to the only other station around which is golden moldy oldies that I've heard too many times.

The powers that be have worked dealings to keep Bain Capital's iHeart, afloat, in order to assure their POTUS runs. But that may all come to an end, real soon. Especially if Romney doesn't steal the nod, at the convention.

Creditors are already claiming iHeart is in default.

all of his "products" which Mitt criticized. Trump may have thought it promoted his brand and made him look good but all it did was make him look like the two bit late night TV hustler that he is. In terms of winning and losing it was probably a wash and will not make and difference as far as the primaries go. But it definitely will not help Trump in the general election, if he gets that far, which I don't think is a given, not that Mitt has changed that outcome one way or the other.

44. yellowcanine.... you are a venerate.... and have seen it all. You have to - at least - consider

 

the possibility, of the fact that we are ALL (both right and left) getting played.

Romney realized, when he poked his head out, for the 3rd run, back in Jan. 2015 - that our story (eToys/Racketeering) would kill his chances (the proof is overwhelming, profuse and has been out there - WAY TOO LONG).

This dynamic was compounded by Jeb Bush entering into the fray.

So Mitt had to find a way to (cheaply) nix our eToys story and assure the demise of Dallas Dynasty III. And his strategist came up with simple, but brilliant, plan.

Mitt owns iHeart (Rush, Beck, etc); which could make many extra millions for Bain's iHeart (at full rack rates - as required by law that no one politico get a cheaper rate than another).

It worked pretty damn well, as all the media really hates the Bush family.

Yeah, they took his hundred million dollars and gobbled it up; but they also paid attention to the fact that the Koch brothers promise of putting in $894 million, is still sitting in the banks.

Meanwhile, Romney's Rush, Beck, Mark Levine, etc., keep stirring the pot by putting Carson, then Cruz, then Rubio, then Trump, up to the fore. This guarantees no clear front runner. That is, until, the media started loving Trump (and how the GOP hates him), and our side pays over a billion, throughout all entities, to bring The Donald back to reality.

Trump is so strong that Mitt had to make a huge splash, to try to thump him.

Gamefully!
(possibly/ probably)

Just sayin..........

It's possible...... it's possible.

More likely it would be Kasich or Cruz, possibly Rubio.

Also think it could be Trump/Cruz - Cruz throws all his delegates to Trump in exchange for the VP slot. In fact, I think this may be the most likely outcome.

28. Has anyone calculated the number of families Mitt has destroyed?

Mitt's business model has been to purchase companies on credit, with little or no money of his own, saddle the acquired company with the debt, then sell the company. He gets the profits and leaves others the pain.

In many (most?) cases the company, now with a huge debt burden, limps along until it is shut down and bankrupt. Thousands are now unemployed.

How many livelihoods has Mitt Romney been responsible for killing? How many families has he destroyed?

In my opinion he is a huge, hypocritical dick.

Go crawl under a rock, Mitt.

I would love to see a debate between Romney and Sanders. Romney would be filleted!

The great thing about this Democratic primary is how a segment of the population is finally being educated on how the 1% financiers have been totally screwing this country's middle class stating in the 1980's.

For the youth vote - look up NAFTA, CAFTA and China in the WTO.

Look up banking deregulation in the 1980s and 1990s.

The middle class manufacturing sector of our country didn't just simply fade away. It was a cold, calculated maneuver by pukes like Romney to benefit on the dismantling of that part of our country and send it to China and Mexico.

Don't let people tell you that managed trade is bad. It is VERY good for everyone, except the 1%. Jobs, jobs, jobs at the expense of corporate profits that go the obscene pay of CEOs.

47. Correct - Red Oak - that is why Mitt is attacking Sanders.

 

He has a much closer opponent, with Hillary....

Whereas Romney represents everything that Sanders wants to Bern.

56. Actually, don't you think he's attacking the anti-establishment candidates

 

(both Trump and Sanders) because the corruption part of the Establishment today is his bread and butter? Ergo, Romney doesn't care if it's Hillary or Cruz ... or Rubio ... or heck even Bloomberg - just as long as the nation's chief executive can be bought?

68. I see what you're saying.

 

Thing is, Trump is bought, and has been buying - fixing - deals (in NYC, no less).

Sanders is the enemy of Right and Left establishments.

As DWS said, the Super's are to make sure people like Sanders, don't have much of a chance.

63. No press has ever reported that Mitt benefited from the "Worse Corporate Merger of all time"

 

Romney owned The Learning Company that merged with Mattel, in 1999, by MNAT law firm, in Delaware.

Mattel investors immediately lost over $3 Billion; and The Learning Company was given away - for free (Gores Technology).

No federal investigation and/or prosecution ever happened, about how the books were cooked.

Bet you don't know why that is - either!

55. Concur Botany....

 

Get in for as little as you can - and steal as much as you can, from as many as you can, as quickly as you can.

However, Romney ups that even one better.

When the entity files bankruptcy (such as Jumbo Sports, Kay Bee or eToys) you file bankruptcy, stiff all the creditors, place in (illegally) your own persons, and even handpick the federal prosecutor to investigate your cases.

Then, you own them all again - with NO debt, in a rinse, lather, repeat, fashion.

It's not legal; but that's not a problem for a Sheldon Adelson Mitt... who can shut down Task Forces.

If by some sick twist of fate Romney is the GOP nominee in the fall and Sanders the Democratic nominee, I think Bernie slices him to bits in every swing state there is, including Michigan.

to even get the nomination, it has to come from a convention floor fight. so you need at least 2 sacrificial lambs willing to stay in until then to keep Trump from getting a majority. Cruz will do it because he's a fanatic, but Rubio and Kasich look like they've both had enough of this crap. and even with the 4 of them running, Trump may just win the nomination outright with a majority this week.

mittens is sharpening his claws for nothing.

Bernie is incredibly vulnerable because his record is relatively thin. All the stuff in this article will be writ large and it will destroy his candidacy.

There's the honeymoon in the Soviet union.
And then all the "sex" bs.

We need to pay attention to this. For two reasons:
One it reveals the man.
Two it is the material the GOP will use to destroy him.
