Romney can ignore Trump’s zany ideas in exchange for support

Donald Trump: The Mouth That Bored

Mitt Romney doesn’t care if off-the-wall billionaire Donald Trump is a “birther” who supports the discredited movement that questions President Barack Obama’s citizenship.

The presumptive GOP Presidential nominee wants Trump’s support and is willing to overlook the real estate mogul’s support of crackpot ideas to get it.

Says Romney:

You know I don’t agree with all the people who support me and my guess is that they don’t agree with everything I believe in.  But i need to get 50.1 percent ore more and I’m appreciative to have the help of a lot of good people.

In other words, bring on the fruitcakes and the crazies.  If they have money and a follower or two, Mitt Romney will embrace them…if not their wild and crazy ideas.

This has some shaking their heads, including conservative columnist George Will, who Sunday called Trump a “bloviating ignoramus.”

Said Will on ABC’s “This Week:”

I do not understand the cost benefit here. The costs are clear. The benefit – what voter is gonna vote for him (Romney) because he is seen with Donald Trump? The cost of appearing with this bloviating ignoramus is obvious it seems to me.

Donald Trump is redundant evidence that if your net worth is high enough, your IQ can be very low and you can still intrude into American politics. Again, I don’t understand the benefit. What is Romney seeking?

    Is it possible that Gov. Romney has no taste in other humans? What does Trump have to do for Romney to show displeasure for his support? What is lacking with this many is a sense of judgment when it comes to others. He had no reaction when Limbaugh called a young law student a “slut.” What bothers other men just passes over his head. Could it be something from his religion that classifies women as somehow less valid than men?

    In my world all Americans should be considered equal unless they break some law and spreading lies about a birth certificate cuts into a serious charge against President Obama’s Mother. It took years before women were allowed into the Mormon faith and only the breeders are considered equal. Are American voters going to vote for Romney when he clearly treats women as being owned by their husbands.

    Romney is not a complete man. He has no emotional reaction when women are verbally attacked and I would assume he would not lift a finger if a womanis attacked by a man.

    I read a story this morning about two young men who took a sledge hammer to a horse. Nobody came to help the horse and the authorities had to put the poor critter down. Is this the new American male? Could it be that men like Romney are the new example of American men? How about that lab who was put in a carrier and strapped on the roof of the car? Our young boys beat the hell out of weaker boys and rape young girls. Where is the reaction?

    Does anyone really want a man like Romney in the White House while approving of probing young women’s privates under the lens of a camera? Yhe lack of dignity involved in this probing procedure puts women in a category of a lab rat. I haven’t seen this much lack of respect since the days of Hitler’s testing of children.

    Hitler wanted the perfect Aryan German breed of humans and how far off is Romney with the restrictions set by his own cult? Where is the repulsion from the men here at CHB?

    What’s happened to “The Donald” is what I believes happens to some older men…as they age, they sometimes seem to not be able to shake weird thoughts or beliefs. In some men, it could be a minor brain short-circuit that a wife, if she is a common-sensed, grounded one, could easily correct by telling her husband that that is a really nutty thought, and her verbal dope slap gets him back on track. For many men as they age, good women keep them mostly focused and based in reality.

    But, in “The Donald’s” case, I don’t know if his girlfriend has the relationship real estate to bring him back from his delusional cliffs.

    It’s a sad commentary on the Rom that he’ll entertain any and all support without question…The old “ends justifys the means” argument could come back to haunt him.

    This “birther” crap has to be put to rest; it is ridiculous and a waste of our national time.

    The reality is that a person does not need to be born in the United States to be president; he or she could be born anywhere in the world, even on the moon, Mars or Uranus and still be eligible.

    The First Congress, that was full of Founders, made that perfectly clear when it specified that a person born of American parent(s) overseas only has to come to the US by age 14 and live five years before adulthood to retain presidential eligibility. “Natural-born” means born of American parent(s), where that occurs is meaningless. Obama was born to a good old Kansas Girl who went to high school in Washington state. He is “natural born.” Being born in the US is “native born”; but we don’t expect Donald Trump to have enough intelligence to know the difference. A birth certificate would only be of value on this issue if it proved the parent(s) to be American citizens. No birth certificate does that. The media needs to start telling our fools just that.

    Obama my have been born to a Kenyan (born) father but Mitt Romney was born to a Mexican (born) father. Where is the idiot Trump on that?
