Why is Mitt Romney staying in the limelight after being defeated by President Obama in 2012? Maybe, just maybe Romney is hoping for a brokered convention where, after Trump and the other goons fail, he can still be nominated by the GOP establishment to carry his party’s banner in the 2016 presidential race.
Why else would Mr. 47% be pandering to the 47% of Americans who, in his words, are “mooching” off the government? In what turns out to be yet another flip flop for Mittens, he is now in full support of raising the minimum wage.
0Mitt Romney, the GOP’s 2012 presidential nominee, has been encouraging party leaders to develop better policies to address wage stagnation. For instance, he supports raising the federal minimum wage, a departure from Republican orthodoxy.“As a party we speak a lot about deregulation and tax policy, and you know what? People have been hearing that for 25 years, and they’re getting tired of that message,” Romney said in a recent interview. He added, “I think we’re nuts not to raise the minimum wage. I think, as a party, to say we’re trying to help the middle class of America and the poor and not raise the minimum wage sends exactly the wrong signal.”
