GOP former presidential candidate Mitt Romney gave advice on NBC’s “Meet the Press” today on how to win a presidential election.
Romney ran in 2008, only to lose the GOP nomination to Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona), and also lost in 2012 to President Barack Obama.
According to Salon.com, Romney was lending his wisdom to whomever is the GOP candidate in 2016 and runs against Hillary Clinton, assuming she runs (video below).
“I’m not running for president,” stated Romney. “The playbook, I believe, is to look at her record. You have to say it’s been a monumental bust.”
Romney claimed the U.S. could somehow magically "shape events" and "prevent bad things from happening." He tried to blame Clinton for world events that happened after she left the Obama administration, such as the Russian invasion of Kiev, Ukraine and the ISIS invasion of Iraq.
"The United States of America has long had the capacity to shape events and to influence events," said Romney, notes Mediaite.com.
"But what you’ve seen from this administration, whether from Hillary Clinton, with the reset button to Russia, which, by the way, should have been called the repeat button, this administration from Secretary Clinton to President Obama has repeatedly underestimated the threats that are faced by America, has repeatedly underestimated our adversaries," claimed Romney.
"Whether that’s Russia, or Assad, or ISIS, or al Qaeda itself, it has not taken the action necessary to prevent bad things from happening. It has not used our influence to protect our interests."
