Guys, Donald Trump sent out a tweet last week that pretty much summed up the difference between him and Mitt Romney. Donald Trump said, “The @GOP should not agree to the ridiculous debate terms that @CNBC is asking unless there is a major benefit to the party.”
Compare that to the primary debate where George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney if states should be allowed to ban birth control. It was a trick political question along the lines of, “Governor Romney, when did you stop beating your wife?”
You can watch the video above and see that Romney tried to answer the question with enough incredulity that he would deflect any perception that he himself opposed birth control.
But he failed. Not in the way that he answered the question or what he said. In fact, he could have read from Dr. Suess’s Green Eggs and Ham. The words he spoke were meaningless. The fact that the question was asked allowed the liberal media to saddle him with the reputation of birth control opponent.
Romney failed when he agreed to participate in a debate moderated by Democrats.
George Stephanopoulos is a Democrat. He was a strategist for Bill Clinton. What business does a Democrat have moderating a Republican debate?
I’ll tell you what business he had. He was just doing his job. His job is to create strategies for Democrats. The birth control question was a Democrat strategy.
Some of you guys right now want to interrupt to tell me that Stephanopoulus is a former Democrat strategist. Now he’s an impartial news anchor for ABC news.
Oh, excuse me! He retired from Democrat strategizing. Now he’s completely impartial because he works for the media. Oh. Okay. Only you and Mitt Romney believe that.
Some of you also want to interrupt me and point out that if he can’t answer questions from Democrats he doesn’t deserve to be president.
Yea. That’s true. But this is the Republican primary. Republicans watch it to decide what candidate they want to represent the Republican party. Therefore republicans should host the debate to ask questions appealing to fellow republicans.
So I’d say Romney doesn’t deserve to be president because he didn’t have enough leadership in his own political party to organize a debate hosted by Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Mark Levine.
Meanwhile Donald Trump shows that he has the gumption to dictate the terms of the debate. He isn’t so gullible to believe that CNBC is an impartial news organization. That’s leadership.
You know what? I think Mitt Romney followed some unwritten rules here. I think the Donald broke those unwritten rules because he wants political power.
(I have an upcoming post about unwritten rules and political power. Stay tuned to www.feedingjimmy.com for more.)
But anyways, I want to end here by going somewhere that many will think is a low blow.
I think that Romney goes along with these silly things because of the false morality taught by his false religion Mormonism. He probly thought that it was the honorable thing to do.
Honor is a vague thing. But scoundrels will define honor in such a way to make otherwise good men defeat themselves. That’s why you need true wisdom from God to discern what’s truly honorable or not.
Meanwhile Donald Trump learned his lessons in the mean streets of the Manhattan real estate world. If you let a scoundrel define honor for you, you’ll lose your shirt.
America needs less honor. It’s killing us. We gave an honor to Barack Obama. The greatest honor of all. The united States Presidency. And scripture says:
Like one who binds the stone in the sling,
is one who gives honor to a fool.
