‘Trickle-Down Racism’

Damn! Even Republicans have had enough of the Chump’s racism!

Mitt Romney: A Trump Presidency Would Spawn ‘Trickle-Down Racism’

So the GOP’s last nominee will not be voting for its next one.

Mitt Romney delivered some searing criticism of Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign on Friday, hitting the presumptive Republican nominee for his own attacks on Latinos, Muslims and women.

“I simply can’t put my name down as someone who voted for principles that suggest racism or xenophobia, misogyny, bigotry, [for someone] who’s been vulgar time and time again,” Romney, one of the GOP’s most vocal Trump critics, told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer. “I don’t want to be associated with that in any way, shape or form.”

Citing Trump’s recent racist remarks about U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is handling two lawsuits accusing the for-profit Trump University of fraud, the previous Republican presidential nominee said that even if Trump tones down his rhetoric, he’s already revealed his true colors.

“He indicated what he believes in his heart about Mexicans and about race by the comments he made about Judge Curiel, and he may try to distance himself from that, but we know what he believes,” Romney said.

He also noted that Trump refused to apologize for his remarks.

“I don’t want to see trickle-down racism. I don’t want to see a president of the United States saying things which change the character of the generations of Americans that are following. Presidents have an impact on the nature of our nation,” Romney said. “And trickle-down racism, trickle-down bigotry, trickle-down misogyny, all these things are extraordinarily dangerous to the heart and character of America.”

He added, “This is not a matter of just policy. It’s more a matter of character and integrity.”

Don’t Hurt Him, Charles!

I can’r see any way possible this election turns up positive for Republicans. I mean – they have pissed off just about everyone in America except white males over 50.

They pissed off the majority of women with their War on Women – 51% of the vote…

They pissed off black folks, who weren’t going to vote for them anyway – 13% of the vote…

They pissed off Hispanics, of who Cubans are the last Republican holdouts – 15% of the vote…

Not to mention pissing off, and trying to screw serially – teachers, unions, federal and state workers, and poor people

They have several Governors and a dozen or more State Representatives under recall by their local constituencies…

They have voted against or filibustered every single effort to move the country out of a recession – they created.

If the Rethuglys get 35% of the total vote this year – I would ask for a recount, as they have hacked the voting machines…

Again.

Barkley to Romney: ‘We’re going to beat you like a drum’

According to always-outspoken Charles Barkley, Mitt Romney’s “going down” in November’s presidential election.

The former pro-basketball star and NBA hall-of-famer turned hoops-analyst made the comments Sunday night during the airing of a playoff game between the Boston Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks.

Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, and his wife Ann were at game, which was held at Boston’s TD Garden. A picture of them in the crowd was shown on TNT, which along with CNN is part of Time Warner’s Turner Broadcasting division.

“We are going to beat you like a drum in November. But don’t take it personally. I like you. You seem like a nice guy. But you’re going down bro,” Barkley said on the TNT broadcast, after seeing Romney in the crowd.

Barkley, a former Republican who switched his party affiliation to Democrat, has previously spoken out about the race for the White House. In December, he described the GOP presidential candidates as “idiots” for their criticism of the president.

Barkley twice weighed runs for the governor’s office in his home state of Alabama, but never took the plunge into campaign politics.
