ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Mitt Romney’s scathing remarks about Donald Trump’s competency to be president are hypocritical, to say the least — particularly given that in 2008 Romney betrayed the Republican Party in his feckless presidential debate against President Obama.

Indeed, even though Mr. Obama lied about calling Benghazi a terror attack, his assertion during the debate that he did call it an act of terror was supported by highly partisan CNN debate moderator Candy Crowley — without serious objection from Mr. Romney. This was a cowardly act that proved he was no match for Mr. Obama. Clearly Mr. Romney was not up to defeating Mr. Obama or stopping Mr. Obama’s corrosive path against our national security and economy.

Surely Donald Trump is a political phenomenon in this 2016 election against Hillary Clinton, but he also has what it takes to win and recover our economy and domestic security. However, his and America’s chances will be seriously reduced if disorganized Republican leaders don’t get their acts together, defeat Mrs. Clinton and increase Republican control of Congress.

Alas, if they don’t it will be a cowardly betrayal of America and our people. I wasted my vote for Mr. Romney in 2008. My vote for Mr. Trump will not be wasted.
