I fail to understand how an endorsement by Trump helps Romney one iota.
#1: Romney, the son of a man who was born in Mexico, not the United States, is going to tie himself to one of the leading detractors of President Obama's birthplace...even after the President presented his long form birth certificate? A bit of irony here?
#2: Romney, a super rich American who obviously can only relate to those in his own class is welcoming the endorsement of another super rich American who obviously cannot relate to anyone other than those of his own class.
#3: Romney, who seems totally unattached from low and middle income Americans, is attaching himself to The Donald, who basks in the spotlight and is always seeking publicity for himself and his television show.
I could understand The Donald endorsing Gingrich. They both have very grandiose egos and very grandiose ideas. In many ways they seem to be cut from the same cloth.
But why would Mitt Romney want to stand beside The Donald? The Donald has proven consistently that he will make as many outlandish remarks as the Mittster has himself. So he sure can't help deliver the message.
You would think that they would have called it a day long ago. But instead the "birthers' and their latest political "pimp," Donald Trump won't stop. The so-called MSM, especially cable news has covered this non-story nearly every day for weeks. Many of these same "news" outlets earlier debunked the birther's absurd false claims. No matter, now every bigoted utterance of "The Donald" is cast as "news." CNN birther pimp Ed Henry kept it up at the WH briefing even after CNN's own Anderson Cooper dispelled the phony claim against the president once and for all. Today, the president caved to "birthers" and released his long-form birth certificate here. But will it end it? Of course not. The side show is by design. And it is designed to work up those who hate our president. Last time anyone checked that included over 40% of Republicans.
