Who Is The Real Mitt Romney?

My timeline is being filled up with black folks admiration for Mitt Romney because of his stance against Donald Trump and his votes for Trump's impeachment in the Senate. I wonder how many of these folks remember that in 2012 when Mitt "Mr 47%" Romney was running for President against Barack Obama he displayed his true nature when he gave a speech to a group of white businessman who had paid $50,000.00 per plate to hear the "real" Mitt Romney. Well, the real Mitt Romney took to the dais and basically said that 47% of democrats were poor folks, black folks, people of color who were leeches to society. This 47% were only looking for government handouts and not thriving or striving to overcome any obstacles.

Yeah, Mr. Truth and Justice himself has changed the emperors clothing to become this vengeful knight against Donald Trump. Now, understand, had Romney felt that Jeb Bush wouldn't end up being the republican nominee in 2016 and not Donald Trump. Romney would've run for President but Jeb Bush's campaign collapsed. Romney also felt that either Marco Rubio, Scott Walker or Jeb Bush would win the nomination. By the time it was a clear cut win for Trump for the nomination, Romney realized he had made a huge mistake.

He's never been Trump supporter and he didn't support Trump in 2016. He's pissed that Trump actually won the Presidency and he didn't. So, when I read all these black platitudes coming on my timeline for Romney I take each with a grain of salt. The true Romney spoke to those $50,000.00 donors about his real vision of America. When the cameras were off in 2012. Had Scott Prouty not videotaped and released that speech. It is presumed by many that Obama may not have gotten a second term. That's what pissed off Mitt Romney, not that he said what he said but what he said should have been kept a secret. The fact of the matter is that Romney mentioned the Clinton emails as an issue in 2016. Trump used those emails to lock up his nomination and his eventual win.

So when Mitt "Mr. 47%" Romney speaks as my Native Americans would say he speaks with a "forked tongue". I will not forget that now Mr. Truth and Justice, Mr. Defender of Democracy basically threw 1/2 of America under the bridge a little less than 8 years ago. What has changed? The fact that he has to address Donald Trump as Mr. President. Any way he can get not to have to do that Mitt Romney will take the bait and cast the line. It has nothing to do with his religious beliefs. It only deals with his animosity toward Donald Trump. I'm not falling for his new found belief in fair play and honesty. So, why is so many of my black friends? I guess they forgot who was Mr. 47%.
