Romney — Should Trump offer the olive branch, or make him squirm?
Remember, Romney wasn’t exactly playing ‘nice’ during the Primaries.
Here are a few of Romney’s ‘spicier’ insults (via: CNN):
“Dishonesty is Trump’s hallmark: He claimed that he had spoken clearly and boldly against going into Iraq. Wrong. He spoke in favor of invading Iraq. He said he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey celebrating 9/11. Wrong. He saw no such thing. He imagined it. He’s not of the temperament of the kind of stable, thoughtful person we need as leader. His imagination must not be married to real power.”
Who he supports:
“Given the current delegate selection process, that means that I’d vote for Marco Rubio in Florida, for John Kasich in Ohio, and for Ted Cruz or whichever one of the other two contenders has the best chance of beating Mr. Trump in a given state.”
What he thinks about Trump personally:
“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 members of the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.”
Does this sound like sour grapes at all?
Trump didn’t seem worried. It’s not like Romney actually WON either of his runs at the White House. So… now that Romney’s #NeverTrump tactics have failed, the ball is in Trump’s court.
Romney came visiting Trump Tower on ‘The Donald’s’ own terms. What are they discussing?
Will he be serving ‘crow’ on the lunch menu? Will Trump take this opportunity to smooth over the rifts in the party, or should he shut out Romney for some of the things he has said?
There are two sides to the question.
There is the boring pragmatic political ‘what’s best for the party side’. You can answer that if you prefer.
The more interesting one is the personal side of it. Which do you find more satisfying — to Hell with the eventual fallout?
Here’s your question. Have fun with it.
Comments, as always, are ‘open’, so you can add as much detail to your ‘why’ as you like.
