Yeah, Rmoney, great time to be seen with this hairpiece motherfarker, just as he's starting the Birther derp up again.

I think to consider Rmoney an idiot is foolish.

How tone-deaf is the Romney campaign right now?

There's a good chance he'll be introduced by Trump, who loves nothing more than attention (good or bad), and will want to keep Birther derp in the 24/7 "news" cycle.

If Romney were programmed with either principles or campaign savvy, he'd publicly denounce Trump and refuse to work with him. But he wasn't, so he'll stand next to any idiot with dollars for him.

What does Romney have to gain from this event, other than dollars?

Now, I get that both campaigns are designed to extract money from the public. But the Romney event is exclusively for the very wealthy, because it's $2500/seat to walk in the door, and $10,000/seat for a "VIP reception". It's being hosted in an extremely glitzy hotel in the middle of a state with a completely broken economy. The VIP guest is Donald Trump.

For contrast, I looked up what the next event is on barackobama.com. (I tried linking to it, but Fark rejected it for "soliciting donations".)

Instead of doing the $2500/seat thing, it's a lottery drawing from anyone who donates to the campaign between 5/21 and 5/29. The smallest donation on the Obama page is for $15, although there's also a write-in, so I guess you could give less. But the idea is that they'll raise money from thousands of people buying $15+ 'lottery tickets', and a couple people will get a "VIP reception" at an undisclosed location in NYC, and the guest is Bill Clinton.

I can't think of a clearer example of the distinction between the two parties.

I've got karnal igged with the description "boring rightwing no personality". Even if you want a flame war with a shill there are far better farkers to engage.

Now please stop quoting him (though having his worthlessness as a Farker confirmed is nice).

Principles aside - this is politics, after all - what the heck is Romney's campaign thinking?

"Trump, popular tv show, this'll get his millions of fans on board!"

No, the message is, "Trump - stereotype of rich d-bag, reinforces every negative stereotype about Romney that we need to overcome"

His campaign thinks they can sell him like any product - just re-brand. New and improved! Now with 50% more centrism! Guaranteed to make your future brighter and your White House whiter!

Worst communications strategy of any modern era presidential campaign, by far.

A chance to publically denounce Trump, then taking the money and running?

That'd be a coup.

Isn't that the same lottery you enter in order to "win" a government paid organ transplant under ObamaCare?

"Gosh, I really hope mommy wins the lottery! She'll die otherwise. But hey... At least she has a chance!"

Stupid libs. You make Hitler look like Capt. Kangaroo!

That's what I don't get. If this was a $10,000/seat VIP reception targeting some conservative-friendly voting bloc, I'd get that. I could see Romney scheduling a joint fundraiser with some Focus on the Family-type leader and trying to bridge the evangelical-Mormon gap by railing about abortions and other social issues. It might fire up some people aren't yet warm to Romney, but would never vote for Obama.

But who the hell does Trump bring to the table? What's the upside? Is Romney so out of options that Trump is the best remaining guy to help him raise big money this week?

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will be in Las Vegas on Tuesday, speaking to press in the afternoon and collecting campaign contributions in the evening at an event hosted by Donald Trump, who officially endorsed him in February.

Neither event is open to the public.


No cries of Wall Street-fellating elitist snobs from the right? Oh nevermind, no one that helps the poor and downtrodden are there so it's ok.

I see you're having a hard time not channeling George Will on this point. I'm having the same issue, and normally I can't stand Will.

They have a unique perspective on the problems of the true common man -- like what to do when one gets loaded on $500/glass vintage port at the Yacht Club Art Auction and one buys the exact same Faberge Egg the wife brought home from her weekend shopping jaunt to Paris, or how to deal with the embarrassment of Porterhouse being caught using *domestic* monocle polish.

Just how devout is Romney when his faith tells him gambling is a mortal sin, yet he glad-hands a casino mogul in the heart of Sin City?
Romney's entire life story tells me he worships money above all.
What would Joseph Smith (let alone Jesus) do?

chimp_ninja: If Romney were programmed with either principles or campaign savvy, he'd publicly denounce Trump and refuse to work with him.


I don't know that any Republican should "denounce" Trump, necessarily. Republicans seem to like the idea of Donald Trump even if they're not crazy about the practical results. But appearing with him a lot is definitely not a good idea: as the late Hitchens would've said, Trump "isn't a serious person."

This one probably calls more for the kind of thank you that carries an unstated but implied "that will be all."

The whole birther thing from Trump seemed staged, it was a crescendo of derp that had it's zenith right before Obama made the announcement about Bin Laden and then it was gone he was also at the correspondents dinner right around that time being the straight man and he donated to Rahm Emanuel's campaign iirc.

IMO Trump's "team" is whoever will keep the status qou going and the only change a no personality douche like Romney would make will be for tax cuts for the rich and that's the status quo.

The exact same thing, as he was a money grubbing conman. Smith, not Jesus. Jesus would headbutt some bankers.
