A few hours before last night's 247th GOP Debate (the first without Dr. Ben Carson, which will free up an additional 30 seconds of time for the remaining candidates to divide), former presidential candidate Mitt "It Would Be Rude To Bring Up Benghazi" Romney took to the airwaves to attack current GOP frontrunner Donald "Flaccid Fingers" Trump.
Romney, using language stronger than any he ever aimed at B. Hussein, accused Trump of being "a phony" and "a fraud" whose "promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University." Romney added that Trump would be an economic disaster, throwing us into recession, initiating trade wars, and driving businesses and entrepreneurs from our shores.
Romney eventually finished his harangue saying Trump has a reckless temperament and "when it comes to foreign policy, he is very, very not smart."
Zing! Bang! Pow! Zooooom!
But... Hope n' Change doubts that this will bother Trump and his loyal legions in the least. Quite the reverse; we think this will help solidify support as his fans decide that their hero is under attack from all sides, and that the old-guard GOP really is the enemy Trump's been warning about. Which may translate to a general election in which they'll pull the switch for Trump, but not help down-ballot Republicans. Consider (assuming you have liquor within easy reach) the "great deals" which would be made by a president Trump working with a Democratic House and Senate...
Because it's really the Democrats who are getting all of the benefit out of the flame wars and food fights occurring between the GOP candidates and the elite and powerful party puppet-masters.
Granted, it's not unusual for the GOP to shoot itself in the foot at election time. But perhaps a ban on using automatic weapons to do so might be worth considering.
