Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is refusing to repudiate Donald Trump even though the billionaire continues to believe that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen.
Speaking to reporters aboard his campaign plane on Monday, Romney said he did not agree with Trump but stopped short of saying that Obama’s birth certificate was real. The former Massachusetts governor was traveling to Las Vegas where he will be attending a fundraiser with Trump on Tuesday.
“You know, I don’t agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don’t all agree with everything I believe in,” the candidate explained.
In my humble opinion Donald Trump no more hurts Romney than Jeremiah Wright and Governor Blogoveich hurt Barack Obama during the 2008 campaign. The media stood firm on being quiet when those among other names were brought up to question Obama’s past dealings and relationships with these individuals and the media gave Obama a pass. Now they want to question Donald Trump who has access to Mitt Romney on a daily basis. Is that because “The Donald” was so against China and how they are destroying our businesses that they want to put the kabash on that before it starts.
The question is “Can the Donald help pull in votes for Romney”? My answer is maybe. Donald Trump is an arrogant businessman with a great sense for building up and maintaining solid business adventures. He’s has a following due to his television show and his self-named real estate ventures across America are legendary…but a politician? Trump is good at getting is message across and while he dabbled in running for the POTUS, he was picking up Tea Party support in huge numbers. While he was on top he dropped out and that could be the major problem that I see in trying to help Romney. America doesn’t like a quitter – ask Ross Perot. You lead the people up the mountain and leave them there will cause many people to second guess your intentions when you are serious trying to help.
Sure “The Donald” can help pull in votes……but in my opinion, at least a few more people will pile onboard and that’s more if he didn’t.
