Actually, no. Mitt Romney will not be the next Secretary of State. Nor will he be the Secretary of the Treasury, Attorney General or Secretary of Defense. He’s not going to run Homeland Security, Transportation or Health and Human Services.
My best guess? President-Elect Donald Trump will appoint Mitt Romney to the important position of Secretary of Kiss my entire ever-lovin’ ass. At least that’s my hope.
Romney showed a disgusting lack of faith in the American people, or more accurately, Conservative America. He was so arrogant, it wasn’t enough to simply stay out of it and keep his beliefs (or lack thereof) to himself, he had to speak them, over and over again. He insulted and maligned Trump so horribly, it caused massive jaw-droppage when he mentioned Romney as a possible SecState.
“Has Trump lost his mind?” many asked. Not the first time that question has been floated. No, he hasn’t lost his mind. He’s simply putting a faithless, rabid dog down in such a way that it won’t be coming back. Let me explain.
Some said it was payback for The Donald. Romney dissed Trump, so the “never forget” Trump is simply leading Mitt around by the nose, before dashing his hopes and telling him, “no, you can’t have that job, Mitt. Psych!
No, that would be the selfish thing for Trump to do. What he’s really doing, I believe, is showing us all how faithless, two-faced and truly stupid Romney is. He’s allowing Romney to, after getting a wink from Trump, completely reversing himself, put the flip-flop in the public eye, making it impossible to miss. Think about it. After seeing Romney go from “Trump is the worst” to “Yay Trump!” does he have more or less credibility with you? He lies pretty well, doesn’t he? The problem is, which is the lie?
And that’s how Donald is outplaying Romney. He recognized, in the failed Mormon Republican candidate, that the man’s hunger for power and overconfidence in his winning smile, someone who wouldn’t think twice about doing a 180 reversal. It also shows how little Mitt thinks of you and me, that we’ll believe any bullshit he’s spouting at the moment, because he’s just that smart, just that good.
Mitt Romney is a modern day robber baron. He makes buttloads of money by destroying, not producing anything. His Bain Capital makes money buying businesses that own assets that can be sold off, regardless of the effect it has on the business or the people who work there. Bain Capital is the worst kind of business, a parasite that feeds on the life force of a business, then moves on when they’ve extracted everything they can from it.
I know this because I worked for a company that was purchased by Bain, and watched them completely destroy it. What they did that wasn’t dishonest was simply stupid. The whole fiasco has cost thousands of hardworking people their livelihoods, damaging or destroying many of their families. It will end, just like planned, in bankruptcy, where thousands more will be left holding the bag, suppliers, creditors and employees all having to kick in to allow the Bain principles their payday.
No, Donald Trump isn’t about to let Mitt Romney into his cabinet, but he wasn’t satisfied to let him off the hook to lie again. If Romney wasn’t a joke before this, he sure is now.
