“Here’s what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He’s playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat,” said Romney.

Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted Romney for acting like Trump. So did Fox News opinion writer Julie Roginsky.

David Stockman provided hard evidence about how Romney made his fortune. And I can add to the list a couple of details they missed.

Hannity Unloads on Rubio’s Suicide Mission

Please consider Hannity Unloads on Rubio.

Hannity said Rubio’s onslaught is “turning into a suicide mission.”
“Donald Trump showed a side of himself last night — I’m speaking objectively here. I’m not taking sides in this,” Hannity said. “But Donald Trump showed a side of him that was very different last night. You could even use the word ‘presidential’ in the way he approached. He was magnanimous when it comes to Ted Cruz and his victories, how tough it is to run for president, you know, and what I’m watching here is the kitchen sink, scorched earth, MMA bare-knuckle brawl, thorough nuclear attacks.”

Back at Fox News, opinion writer Julie Roginsky, asks “Who is the Real Phony and Fraud?

Super-Fraud Proof

David Stockman provides the answer: Mitt Romney is the Real Super-Fraud: Here’s the Proof, Chapter and Verse.

Now that’s a screaming case of the pot calling the kettle black if there ever was one. Mitt Romney has lashed out at The Donald for being a “phony and fraud”, but consider this. During his 16-years at Bain Capital, fully one-fourth or $600 million of the firms cumulative $2.5 billion of profits were scalped from companies which went bankrupt soon after Mitt and his partners got out of town with the loot.


Loose Ends

Stockman provides example by example in brilliant detail as to who’s the “super-fraud”.

Let’s now return to Romney’s speech to clean up some loose ends.

In his speech, Romney stated “At the last debate, all he could remember about his healthcare plan was to remove insurance boundaries between states. Successfully bringing jobs home requires serious policy and reforms that make America the place businesses want to plant and grow.”

Curiously, no one pointed out the obvious fact that Obamacare and Romneycare are essentially the same thing.

Turning to recession, trade, and foreign policy Romney stated “His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He wants to bring jobs home from China and Japan. But his prescriptions to do these things are flimsy at best.”

Romney on Trade

The policies on China Romney blasted Trump for were his own!

I am a huge free trade advocate. In this case both Romney and Trump are wrong.

Romney blasted Trump over Tariffs although his own policy suggestions were essentially the same. Romney is not only a hypocrite, but a hypocrite with a memory problem.
