Mitt Romney Stunned Everyone With This Speech To Help Hillary Clinton

Throughout this election, failed 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney has been one of Hillary Clinton’s top surrogates.

He’s trashed Donald Trump at every turn and plays to the liberal media in attacking the GOP nominee.

And he just gave a big speech that has many experts believing he wants Hillary Clinton to win.

Since losing in 2012, Romney has remade himself as the face of the Republican donor class.

He’s endorsed moderate or left-leaning Republicans in primaries where they faced Tea Party challengers.

And during the GOP primary, he gave a series of speeches ripping Donald Trump.

Now just two weeks before the general election, he’s delivered remarks designed to undermine Trump’s final appeals to unite the Republican Party to achieve victory against Hillary Clinton.

Appearing at one of the citadels of the Republican establishment – the Washington, D.C. headquarters for the pro-government Chamber of Commerce – Romney laced into Trump.

Politico reports:

“Legal reform was ostensibly the subject of Mitt Romney’s address at the ornate U.S. Chamber of Commerce headquarters Wednesday afternoon. But just about every sentence from the measured 2012 Republican standard-bearer offered a study in contrasts with the fiery, bombastic Donald Trump — and it was clear the well-heeled audience missed him, greeting Romney with a standing ovation.

 

“Title the speech ‘I told you so,’” Chamber President Tom Donohue said he had suggested of Romney’s keynote. “Of course, he’s a little too polite [for] that.”

 

And in his speech, which clocked in at just under 13 minutes, Romney was polite, taking only veiled and mild swipes at both Trump and Hillary Clinton — a far cry from his successor’s frequent bouts of name-calling. But more subtly, with his optimistic assertions that America is “the greatest nation in the history of the earth” and his nods to businesses started by first- and second-generation immigrants, Romney offered a clear rebuke to Trump’s often-dark nativism.

 

“I’ve watched the presidential debates, I’ve looked at the give-and-take, there’s been almost no discussion of those things I’ve described,” he lamented after sketching out economic and educational challenges facing the country. “The national debt and how to deal with it, reforming entitlements, I don’t think either candidate for president has said they’re going to reform entitlements one way or another.”

Many critics interpreted Romney’s remarks as a permission slip for establishment Republicans to sit on their hands or vote for Hillary Clinton in November.

Romney – and other Republican elites – is betting that if Trump loses, they can reassert their dominance in the party and push through their globalist agenda of amnesty, trade deals, and foreign wars.

Politico also observed that Romney’s remarks were a direct challenge to Trump’s campaign themes:

“And 13 days before the election, there was no hint at an olive branch. Instead, Romney made a point to talk up America’s values and accomplishments, even as he sketched out its challenges. It was another sharp contrast with Trump, who, with his slogan “make America great again,” routinely paints a picture of a country in decline.

 

“A nation which is an innovative nation should win” in a changing economic climate, Romney said. Hitting an optimistic note, he continued, “That’s exactly who we are.”

 

Romney’s use of “win” appears an obvious challenge to Trump, whose chief complaints about the country’s current state is that it doesn’t “win anymore.”

Trump’s core themes of “Making America Great Again” by putting “America First” are a nationalist challenge to the globalist agenda of Romney and other American elites.

Trump believes in policies that put American interests first in trade, immigration, and foreign policy.

Romney – and other globalist-minded Republicans – believes in subverting American interests to those of the worldwide community.

This is why many conservatives believe Romney has worked so hard to elect Hillary Clinton –because she clearly shares his belief in mass immigration, global trade deals, and reckless foreign wars.

Do you believe Romney’s speech will hurt Trump’s chances of victory?

    Romney is a POS and his days as a politician are over, he should be thrown out of the Republican Party. He thinks his money can buy what ever he want and Trump has proven Romney and Cuban wrong. They need to give it up Trump has proven to be the better man , he has taken on everything they through at him and still stands above both of them. The RNC should be ashamed of what they have done to the republican party. My last Vote as a Republican will be for Trump.

  • I’m disappointed to say the least. Romney and the other #NeverTrumpsters including Paul Ryan, John McCain, Mia Love, Mike Lee, the Bushes, the National Review, and others who claim that they neither endorse or will be voting for Trump are hurting the Republican Party. Of course Trump isn’t perfect, and has said some bad things, but at least he has apologized. Remember that he said those things long ago when he was even a Democrat. Now that Trump has a proven, conservative platform and has converted to being a Republican, has worked hard to win the Republican nomination, has spent $millions of his own money in the process, should we not give him a chance over a known criminal who is the most corrupt person to ever seek the presidency? Trump says that he is running hard because he loves America and I believe him. He says that he will select judges to the Supreme Court who will uphold the Constitution and I believe him. Look at his children who have grown to be phenomenal, productive and well educated people. That says a lot to me about Trump’s character. I think that he was the only Republican who has any chance of beating the Clinton machine and the corrupt Democrats as they are being given $Billions of free press by the lame stream media. Look at the massive crowds that he is drawing! It is a phenomenal movement. Hillary is not drawing 1/10 as many to her rallies. Even in Utah, Mike Pence had a huge crowd, while Tim Kaine had 30 and most of them were his staff and the press. Kaine was so embarrassed that today he canceled his next rally in Florida. We need to unite the Republican party if we are going to have any chance at all to win this election. There is too much to lose by not getting behind our only candidate and pulling together. Even after he wins and I think that he will, he will need a majority in Congress to help him “drain the swamp” and clean up the corruption in government. I hope that the Never Trumpers will reconsider the importance of this election and jump on the band wagon to support Trump and make this a big win for America!

      I agree with you but I believe that the corrupt government we have at present will do and say ANYTHING to keep their position in politics. Mike obummer stated that when her crooked
      hubby got the democrat choice for president was the first time she was proud of this country. I now feel the opposite way about having Killery in line for president. NO ONE can come up with a good excuse why she is not indicted and in PRISON! This PROVES just how crooked our political and attorney generals office really are. FORGET the safety of our country, just cover our own asses! Political corruption has gotten WAY out of hand and they are petrified that Trump just might change the government back into something we can be proud of once again. YES, I’m a dreamer but, I also believe in GOD!

      Stephen, You should send this letter to the e-mails of Romney, McCain, Ryan, etc. I feel exactly as you just commented!

  • drbhelthi

    Ah, Mitt Romney, the deceitful Mormon with his support of the fraudulent health insurance industry, offshore banks, and the New World Order.

  • GrizzMann

    Rino’s always admire their losers.

  • dave3200 ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵀʳᵘᵐᵖ

    The voters selected Trump. The voters continue to strongly support Trump. Romney and his establishment OWO friends oppose the people. Romney is useless scum.

  • David Stewart

    I spoke to one younger person about the election; fellow said he just couldn’t vote for a Mormon, so he voted for a Muslim instead! Guess Mittt is all full of resentment, still!

  • patriotictothecore

    Romney and the other traitors should be ashamed for not supporting the core values of the Republican party for the good of the American people. They need to look at the big picture, not just their own agendas. Bottom line… if our country isn’t kept safe, with economic growth – nothing else matters – we all lose. Wake up boys.

  • CrystalClaire

    Now we know for CERTAIN the NWO loyalist took a deliberate nose dive for Obama! He was never for us! Thank God we bypassed all the RINOs this time, & nominated Trump! Now that Hillary’s shell is cracking, he’s very likely to be victorious!!! We also owe a great deal of debt to Julian Assange, for usurping the Hillary-complicit media. I know it’s not over, & these snakes won’t go quietly, but just remember, new moons are for new beginnings! Things often turn around positively, as it converts to it’s waxing state. And Halloween isn’t just for devils. There is great pivot power in this “in between” time of year. This year – those two forces are aligned. Sadly, there are a lot of wrongfully dead – thanks to Hillary, & in their restlessness, they may be doing unseen work to help us to vanquish her. They can see, beyond what we suspect, ALL that needs to be exposed; & not just for our sake, but for the whole western world! A lot of innocent blood has been spilled, thanks to (Obama & Hillay enabled) ISIS. And at this point, the whole world NEEDS US to break loose from our chains! We know they’re using switcharoo voting machines, so voters in those states must be extra vigilant! We know they will throw every abominable smear at Trump. But we also know……. he won’t give up! He will fight them tooth & nail, every step of the way! When it’s over we’ll likely see an economic collapse; the one they’ve been staving off – to make Obama look good. There could also be T attacks, riots, with encouragement from BO, so brace yourselves. Look what he’s let out of prison, & in from foreign countries! Look how it’s practically become his yearly Christmas tradition, to have riots aflame somewhere! This change of power could be full of unprecedented drama, but for the sake of the future, we must endure, & prevail! It will be worth it!

    democRAT ick ans !

    Let Romney run his mouth. Every aware voter knows that Romney actually “threw the election” between himself and Obama. with his 47% remarks, and his backing away from Obama in the debates, was an intentional move. This guy is a POS and frankly I’m glad that he lost in his bid even though I certainly don’t like what Obama has done to this nation. But Romney is an underhanded “mole” who has his own agenda which has nothing to do with the welfare of this nation.

  • Mike

    For the record, Romney is an afterthought and an IDIOT that is why he needs to stay out of politics. He was in a race in 2012 that ANY reasonable Republican could have won easily, as a matter of fact Romney went out of his way to lose. He is a loser, always was and always will be and NO reasonable person would listen to him.

  • Ed Akerman

    And to think I gave him money twice. In Mass for Gov and 4 years ago. Little did I know he was such a lying rotten slug, After years of watching the Mormon’s sing beautiful Christmas songs, now I’ll see his traitor face on the TV. If Trump loses I place the blame on him. I’ve never hoped for bad things to happen to someone, but after this traitor turned on our conservative party, I’ve changed my mind. If he happens to get hit by a truck I’d sent a Thank you gifts to the driver. And that’s not me!
