Media Laughed At This BIG Claim Romney Made In 2012, It Now Looks Like He Was Right…

Mitt Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts and presidential candidate who lost to President Obama in 2012, was the target of mainstream media’s attack on his character and ability to be a president.  At one point in the attacks, the mainstream media tried to indicate that Romney was a high school bully.

Romney’s knowledge of world events and hot bed areas of terrorism were also scoffed at.  During a final presidential debate in 2012, Romney warned that Libya, Syria, and Mali were hot zones of terrorism. As Washington Examiner correspondent Becket Adams wrote, Romney noted that security in North Africa had fallen into terrorist shambles during the Obama years.

“Mali has been taken over, the northern part of Mali by al Qaeda type individuals…With Mali now having North Mali taken over by al-Qaeda, with Syria having [Bashar al-Assad] continuing to kill, to murder his own people, this is a region in tumult,” Romney said.

That’s when the scoffing by media began.

Adams described the media’s attempt to humiliate Romney;

“I bet Romney couldn’t point to Mali on a map,” Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas said at the time on social media.

Longtime Clinton ally and CNN contributor Paul Begala added elsewhere, “POTUS has mentioned Israel at least three times Romney has cited Mali twice. Really.”’s Matt Yglesias joked in a note of his own, “Romney going for the vote of single-issue Mali voters. Obama for people who don’t like Osama bin Laden.”

He added later, “Teachers unions have thrown Northern Mali into chaos.”

The media had Romney’s number, but they should have been investigating Romney’s claims instead of trying to make their incumbent hero look like a shoo-in.  That’s because Romney got it right.  His fateful predictions tragically came true. On Friday, Islamic fundamentalist terrorists stormed the Radisson Blu Hotel in Mali, killing more than two dozen people.

Romney got it right, but apparently Americans got the president they wanted.  Now, the American people are the ones doing the scoffing, joined by the throngs of governors who’ve said Obama’s plan to bring tens of thousands of so-called “refugees” into the U.S. is simply asinine.  After all, Obama has ISIS “contained.”

Yeah right.

Rush Reveals BIG Story He’s ‘Been Holding’ To See If Media Would Cover (It Didn’t)

A conservative leader who has given hundreds of Americans a voice rather than a few monopolies, reacted passionately to a top member of the Republican establishment wistfully recalling the good old days.

“Mitt Romney is on record…as lamenting and complaining about the fact that there is now a conservative media, both on talk radio, in print, in broadcast, and on the World Wide Web,” conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh told his audience Monday.

According to Rush, Romney told podcast host David Axelrod “that the demise of legacy media had empowered conservative insurgents like this show and others, which has prevented collaboration in Washington.”

Limbaugh said he held off commenting on the story for almost a week to see if Romney’s words attracted significant media attention. Only Breitbart reported the comments.

“Romney lamented that more Democrats are considering themselves ‘liberal’ and ‘in my party, there are more and more who feel they are more insurgent than towards the center of the party,” Breitbart wrote.

“And I think that divisiveness is one of the things that has led to Washington having such a hard time getting things done,” Breitbart quoted Romney as saying on the podcast.

Limbaugh offered a different analysis.

“It is my contention that busting up the Democrat Party monopoly and the mainstream media — I do believe it’s led to divisiveness, but it’s not because of us. The divisiveness and the reason there is so much partisanship and mean-spirited, extreme rancor is all on the Democrats, if you ask me, and the media,” Limbaugh said.

“They have lost their monopoly. They have reacted in extreme ways, complete with anger and frustration and a desire to destroy the upstarts,” he said.

Limbaugh believes that the danger he sees is not just that Romney longs for the days when news was heavily controlled.

“He’s not just speaking for himself,” Limbaugh said. “This is the thinking within the Republican Party Washington, D.C. This is the thinking.”

Limbaugh warned that it is not only the Democrats that are part of the downfall of this nation.

“We are witnessing the decline our country right in front of our eyes. We are witnessing the transformation of our country,” Limbaugh said. “We are witnessing a particular party do it with glee, and we are scared because the party we thought that we supported to stop it isn’t interested in stopping it. They’re interested in stopping us. Meaning, opponents of what’s happening.”

Ann Coulter Just Revealed Her ‘Dream Team’ Presidential Ticket – Many Won’t Like It

Conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter sparked some impassioned debate this week when she posted a tweet containing her ideal Republican presidential ticket. A vocal supporter of primary front-runner Donald Trump’s immigration rhetoric, Coulter included the brash billionaire to lead her “dream team.”

While a few social media users added to the anti-Trump backlash she has already received, plenty of her fellow Trump supporters jumped in to lambaste her vice-presidential pick: 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

Of course, several commenters asserted that her dream more closely resembled their nightmare.

A common issue with the viability of such a ticket, many users noted, is that Trump and Romney seem to harbor some animosity toward each other.

After Romney Bashed Trump’s Chances Of Winning, Donald Crushed Him With One Brutal Fact

In a clash that symbolizes the collision between the Republican Party’s establishment and its surging outsiders, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump fired back on Sunday at the party’s 2012 nominee.

Mitt Romney “choked” and “blew an election that never should have been lost!” Trump exploded on Twitter, after Mitt Romney appeared on a Sunday talk show and downplayed Trump’s candidacy.

Romney, appearing on CNN’s State of the Union, was asked by host Jake Tapper if he would vote for Trump if he were to win the GOP nomination.

Romney was quick to affirm that he would support the party’s nominee.

“I don’t believe that’s going to be Donald Trump,” Romney added.

“I don’t think it’s likely that Donald Trump will be the nominee, but it’s obviously too early to tell,” Romney added. “At this stage numbers go up and down, candidates have bursts of support.”

Romney noted Trump’s strength has been a surprise.

“Donald Trump has had a lot of support for a long time, and so I think a lot of folks think, ‘Well, this could (go) a lot further than, than people had expected.’”

Unsurprisingly, Trump fired back via Twitter.

Trump tweeted Sunday:

Trump noted that the Romney was famous for his own campaign gaffes.

Mitt Romney Just Said Whether He Thinks Trump Will Win The GOP Nomination

Prominent Republicans – even those not seeking the party’s presidential nomination – have faced media questioning regarding Donald Trump’s emergence as an unconventional front-runner. 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney responded to one such inquiry during an interview with James Bennet, editor in chief of The Atlantic.

Romney confirmed that he “will support the Republican nominee,” qualifying that he does not believe that person will be Donald Trump.

“My party has historically nominated someone who’s a mainstream conservative,” he said, “and someone who has a foundation in foreign policy that gives people confidence that they can guide the ship of state in troubled waters.”

While he did not dismiss those in the field without experience in elected office, Romney maintained that Trump is not the type of candidate likely to earn the nomination. Specifically, he criticized Trump’s “absurd and dangerous” opinions on America’s involvement in Syria.

As for the candidates Romney believes could meet the qualifications to win over primary – and general – election voters, he included Chris Christie, John Kasich, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Lindsey Graham and potentially Carly Fiorina.

“I think each of them has staked out territory which is not extreme,” he said, “and so I don’t think I’d conclude that it’s impossible for a Republican to be able to win the general election. As a matter of fact, I think we will win the general election in part because we have such strong and capable people as the ones I’ve mentioned.”
