If the buzz is true and Mitt Romney is to be our next Secretary of State, all I can say is Holy %$*&^$#@!
Mitt Romney? Really? The same guy who told you that you are a “phony” and a “fraud,” you are “playing the American public for suckers,” and your “promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.” That guy? Secretary of State?
My first reaction to this news was shock, then anger. After all, Mitt has really shown himself to be what I consider a traitor. He aided and abetted an enemy of the United States, one Hitlery Clinton. Now he is going to be Secretary of State? Wow!
On the other hand, this could be a brilliant stroke. Mitt Romney may be an establishment hack, but he is actually the perfect face of America – movie star good looks, celebrity status, and stellar résumé, a solid representation of America from a sales and marketing perspective, and if The Donald is nothing else, he is a sales and marketing genius, the bonus I have been most anxious to see play out.
In addition, this could be a stick and carrot to the establishment, letting them know that even though there is a new sheriff in town and the game is about to change, there is room for all who are willing to accept and embrace the change. It is called “America First.”
Thus, I defer to Donald Trump’s superior hiring ability and sales and marketing genius, and I am praying daily for his success, as my children’s and grandchildren’s futures are depending upon it. All in all, I consider Donald Trump’s arrival on the political scene at this crucial moment in history no less than Divine Providence.
