Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney is charging into the increasingly divisive White House race with a verbal lashing of Donald Trump and a plea for fellow Republicans to shun the front-runner for the good of country and party.

Romney is branding the billionaire businessman as “a phony, a fraud” whose “promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University,” according to a speech Romney planned to give at the University of Utah on Thursday morning. The Associated Press obtained excerpts of his remarks in advance.

  • Someone pointed out to me today how funny Donald Trump is. Now that I think about it, it’s absolutely true. Who else could come up with a proposal to have a wall built between the U.S. and Mexico and have Mexico pay for it? Deadpan humor at its best! Mexican ex-leaders respond with outrage! Everyone is a straight man to Trump. No wonder the world is in such sad shape: no one is able to laugh any more at the absurdities of the human situation.

  • “a phony, a fraud” whose “promises are … worthless.”

    Sounds like a working definition of all politicians. The problem is the electorate. Most people appear to vote primarily out of self-interest and self-validation. Honesty is secondary. That is why, in the absence of a society with shared values, we have what has been called “the tyranny of democracy.” Tyranny of democracy resembles an authoritarian state, and democratic values such as respect for diversity and for the common good are lacking.

    The ideal leader from a Jewish standpoint is one who serves as a role model for such values as ethical behavior and respect for educated opinion and legitimate authority.

    This situation with the Republicans sorta reminds me of Bayit Yhudi.

    The party tried to reach out to a wider sector of voters. But the ultraconservatives within the party freaked out and sabotaged the success of the party.
