Romney attacks Donald Trump

Romney attacks Donald Trump. The GOPe is going all-in to sink the candidate who is winning its primaries. Wow. (I wonder if they will bring this up.)

Mitt Romney has instructed his closest advisers to explore the possibility of stopping Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, a source close to Romney’s inner circle says.

Romney taken to task by the Lion of the Blogosphere:

Romney accused Donald Trump of lowering the quality of discourse, but then proceeds to call him, throughout the speech, a “con man,” a “fake,” a “phony,” and a “fraud.” …

He hypocritically criticizes Trump for not releasing his tax returns, but back when he was running for president it took him a long time to release his tax returns, and he used the same sort of excuses that Trump uses to delay releasing them. ..

He repeats the same misrepresentations of Trump’s statements that the liberal MSM has been using against Trump. He especially hits him on the KKK thing, which is a misrepresentation of how Trump responded to an obnoxious question from CNN’s Jake Tapper whose intent was to make Trump look like a racist….

He says that polls show that Trump can’t beat Hillary, but in early 1980, polls showed that Carter had a massive lead over Reagan, bigger than Hillary’s lead over Trump.
