Captain Underoos is delusional enough to think that he had a chance to win the Republican nomination in 2016:
The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said he often asks himself why he did not run again and expressed regret for not doing a “better job” communicating his conservative economic message to the public.
“I get asked on a regular basis, ‘Boy, why aren’t you running this year?’ I ask myself that now and then too. But I did that once,” Mitt Romney, a former governor of Massachusetts, said at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Legal Reform Summit this week in D.C.
Romney said the general public might have gotten the wrong impression about his economic plans.
“People on the other side of the aisle have made that a centerpiece of their campaigns, which is the idea of income inequality and the lack of progress for middle-income families, and it’s something which, gosh, I kick myself as a Republican nominee for president for having not done a better job communicating this,” he said.
“When you speak, as you do in a primary, to people who are strong Republicans and conservatives, you begin to speak in shorthand because they’ve heard the kind of remarks that I’d make, they’ve heard it time and again, and they sort of understand what you mean. So when I’m talking about making America the most attractive place in the world for entrepreneurs, and when I want to make America a terrific place for small business and big business, when I want to see corporations thrive and grow in America, what my primary audience hears is something which they can connect with,” he added.
The reason Romney didn’t run again is because a) no one except Wall Street and the Fortune 1000 supported his globalist economic plans and they are supporting Hillary anyhow, b) he’s a terrible and incompetent candidate, and, c) he would have gotten fewer votes than Jeb Bush.
No Americans trust the globalist Republicans anymore or are buying their immigrant-in-a-poker program. Trickle-down economics trickled down only to the H1Bs and immigrants. The ironic thing is that Mormons may be the only portion of the electorate dumb enough to collectively a) reject racial identity politics while simultaneously b) practicing aggressive religious identity politics.
You can get offended by my observation if you like, but you can hardly deny it. Taken as a political demographic, Mormons won’t vote for white American interests, but they’ll vote for a Mormon every single time.
