Former Massachusetts Gov. and 2012 GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney announced Friday he is voting for Sen. Ted Cruz in the Republican caucuses in Utah, saying Mr. Cruz is likely the best shot at denying Donald Trump the party’s presidential nomination at this point.

“The only path that remains to nominate a Republican rather than Mr. Trump is to have an open convention,” Mr. Romney said in a statement on his Facebook page. “At this stage, the only way we can reach an open convention is for Senator Cruz to be successful in as many of the remaining nominating elections as possible.”

Mr. Romney recently campaigned for Ohio Gov. John Kasich in Mr. Kasich’s home state, and said he would have voted for Mr. Kasich in Ohio.

“But a vote for Governor Kasich in future contests makes it extremely likely that Trumpism would prevail,” Mr. Romney said.

    WHO GIVES A F WHO THIS LOSER (MR) VOTES FOR?

  • Barbara Dewey

    Who cares who you vote for Romney, I’m voting to take back America, Go Trump. USA

  • Connie Wolfinger

    Romney, I cannot believe I voted for you at the he he last election. You made a fool of yourself with that speech of yours last week. You are just scared that you will lose your precious job, and all the money that has been handed under the table for years.
    Problem is, you owe someone something.
    Don’t deny it, Mormans should tell the truth, right?
    Trump is not a real politician. And you know what? That’s what I want. I don’t want a lifelong politician anymore, who thinks he can get away with anything he wants. You, owe people, Trump owes nobody anything.He does not have to owe you favors because you donated to his campaign, whereas, you do.
    It’s a real sorry situation. I really USED to like you, but now, after that stupid speech you made, I can truthfully say, that I actually hate you.
    You looked and sounded like the idiot you are.
    I won’t even wish you good luck in the future. Get a job with the Mormans, maybe you can become a missionary.

    Good for Romney….does he want a ‘medal’ or a ‘chest to pin it on’. He’s a has-been. Go home…tend to your personal business and leave politics alone. Romney didn’t have the guts to fight for the office of President in 2012 and therefore lost. Now he has the guts to come forth and flap his jaws. I have less respect for him letting the ‘establishment elites’ dictate what he needs to do. I voted for him in 2012. He was, we the people’s prayer for hope and change..which we still have not gotten. Bankruptcy of this country is all we’ll get at this point if another Democrat is elected.

  • Anthony

    Don’t worry Romney is like the New England weather, give him another 5 minutes it will change, he change back and forth so many times and so fast that it makes him not dependable that’s why he lost against Obama the weakest link we ever had running for President became the winner.

  • kathy diamond

    To run for President or to support someone who is running for President for the sole purpost of upsetting another candidate is not a good enough reason to run for President. Sounds like Cruz & Mitt The Morman are like minded.

  • Robert Early

    So, Cruz is way ahead in Romney/MormonLand. And is that supposed to be good news for Cruz??? I don’t think so. He would fare better to reject Romney’s endorsement.

  • Lee Fleming

    You are entitled to your vote. I am voting for Trump!

  • ai

    I made a mistake about you, Mitt

  • RuFus92

    That will probably be a loser voting for a loser.

  • RuFus92

    I had very serious doubts when I cast a ballot for him last election, given the choice of him or Obama, now I see my misgivings were well founded. He would of proved about as devastating as Obama has been.

  • Robert Early

    Who cares who you vote for Romney. Don’t you understand? You are politically dead; and starting to foul the air.

  • Libya21

    Just what I expect from an asshole named Romney!

  • Bill Petro

    You lost in the last election, why should We the People listen to you now??? Shut up and read your Book of Mormon!!!

  • Douglas McIntyre

    I’m Voting For Trump! And totally disappointed with you Bums in the Republican Party for the Way you have taken it upon yourselves to take away my RIGHT To Vote My Choice!!!

    You Fools in the Republican Party can have my card back….because others around the World are Watching You and They Are Saying America wants us to Vote, The Freedom of Votes Etc., Etc., Etc… and Yet the Americans Don’t Respect Freedom and Rights of Others to Vote their Choice!

    Christians Around the World Have Begged Obama for help…to keep them from being Killed at the Hands of Muslums…..and now That he is only a few Months from being Kicked out of our White House….Communist Kerry, now openly states “CHRISTIANS ARE BEING KILLED BY THE THOUSANDS”…a little late now isn’t it! And people have a problem with Trump!!!! What the F**K is wrong with Americans any more!!!

  • paulyz

    Who cares RINO Looser!

  • Looking Inside

    Who cares what cares what you think Mitty? Uh, no one! You are a washed up old has-been who has no respect for what the people want in this election. Go home, put your feet up, have a toddy and remember you are a FAILURE!

  • Dennis B Anderson

    Anyone for a path for immigration should be counted as presidential feces and should be flushed immediately. I have some sympathy for some mexicans that have been in the states some 20 years and still not citizens. You have to ask yourself why they arent what held them back before you get all misty. I know our country is more relaxed then any other thats pushing the immigration issues.
    I say to them fix your problems where you came from dont bring them here here it saves nothing. Romney I would have voted for him but he helped get us here. Now hes backing a mexican with Canadian credentials that are questionable. Hey why not we elected a black man from Kenya. In this case Obama is guilty until proven other wise. Trump even offered him 3 million to see his history jacket , but no sale. Why was this black mans jacket concidered off limits? First niger in the white house I want to be able to see whats up with him. How can anyone be elected president of the united states with 2 SSI cards and went to occidental College on a Indonesian schlorship for free and not get called on it? You will get more of the same with Cruz more illegals getting a path to citizenship and this piece of work Romney is backing the same ole $cheieit.

  • Ron

    Mitt…PLEASE just shut up and go away! NOW!!!

  • Russ

    If the truth was know he probably plans to write in his own loser name. Get off the screen Cromney!!

  • 3CatLady

    Maybe if Rommalma talks enough, he will ensure a split vote between Cruz and Kasich and let Trump get his 1237 “dedicated” delegates who should vote for him on the first ballot if the Rules Committee doesn’t tamper with the rules as they stand now. We need a shakeup in Washington which was what they said when Lincoln was elected. Go Trump!

  • yogiman

    You’re exposing your ignorance, Mr. Romney. Rafael Cruz cannot be a natural born citizen of the USA through citizenship through Canadian citizenship. Canada did not accept dual-citizenship at his birth.

    Ted Cruz renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014… yet he run (and won) a seat in the Senate in 2012 as a citizen of Canada.

    Do a little study on the definition of natural born citizen. It certainly isn’t a child with parents of two different nations.

  • Phil Esposito

    Just go crawl under a rock you toad.

  • Sherylynne

    Of course, Romney is voting for Kasich. And, then, of course, Romney is voting for Cruz. They are ALL POLITICIANS. To actually have someone in the White House for the PEOPLE is scaring the hell out of them. Kasich is on the bottom of the barrel and he’s delusional enough to think he’ll be the next President. Then, you’ve got the Canadian who NO ONE likes. He likes to boast he has stood up against Congress, to imply that is why he is not liked. Not so. He is, simply, unlikable. If our government doesn’t like him, how is he going to connect with world leaders? How will he ever get anything through Congress? Romney is a loser. Bush is a loser. And, we don’t need no damn loser because THEY pick losers. We’ve had enough losers. We’ve had enough special interests. We’ve had enough wholesale selling of government positions and self-serving presidents. TRUMP 2016!

  • Bill Blackstone

    He announced this because he is pushing a contested nomination. Another ploy by the establishment. Did you believe the KKK crap? No! Why then this? Go Trump.

  • Luke

    If I were cruz I would denounce romneys approval or cruz will have to suffer the stench of the GOP establishment.

  • jcadla

    Upaces said it as well as I could…hence, this quote: JC….

    “You Coward, Romney…You knew you won and you didn’t even fight back!

    Yes! He was winning; and disappeared…only to come back a few days later AFTER Obama was announced as the POTUS…he said, “It was out of my control.”

    How could anyone trust anything he says after that!!!

    Romney was and still is a loser in every sense of the word. Why don’t you go home and stop embarrassing yourself and everyone else…

  • Jim

    NOTICE: Just one more bought and paid for politician backing another bought and paid for politician. Sorry folks, no matter what they try to tell you, Ted Cruz is just another bought and paid for politician – part of the GOP Establishment.

  • hankmacaw

    Romney – you are a loser – you are a proven loser and no one give a dmn what you say.

  • Sue

    Who cares, Romney. You were a loser in 2012. You are a loser today. Vote, go home, and try to feel important. You aren’t. Well, you might be if you bring about chaos at the Republican convention. Then, Trump supporters will stay home, not vote, and you’ll have handed the Presidency to a criminal. Way to go!

  • Gerry Costa

    Romney was a loser and he has just succeeded in making Cruz the same –GO TRUMP !!!!

  • Dawn

    Romney, just go away. We don’t give a flying you know what for any
    endorsement you make.

  • Veteranasm

    kasick last week cruz this week , mitt is a progressive POS that is going to destroy the gop !!

  • TOM

    Who gives a fukk???????????????????????? Mitt you are as bad as Obama and Kasich

  • used_to_be_a_liberal

    Judas Romney, it appears that very, very few people care about anything that you have to say anymore. From me to you Judas, go to hell.

  • bill

    Romney and the GOP chumps in desperation to keep their secrets from being exposed. Putting every effort to keep the border open and full blown amnesty in action.

  • Charles Reed

    If I was Ted Cruz I would not be happy with Romney telling the world that who he voting for me. Good bye Cruz, now we know you sold out to the ELITE too.

    • bill

      Of course this just shows how much power their Super Pac’s and big donors have on the GOP.

      • PatriotGal

        bill, to that point, it proves that Lyin’ Ted is part of the establishment pols and will bow down to them no matter what he promises the voters now. TRUMP 2016!!

        • bill

          I would not put it past the GOP chumps to take Trump out beyond anything political.

          • kathy diamond

            bill, I’m worried about that also

          • Margaret Thomason

            GUYS, TRUMP IS IN GOD’S HANDS THOUGH HE MSY NOT REALIZE IT. HE IS THE MAN THAT GOD HAS CHOSEN FOR THE TASK OF POTUS. IF GOD IS IN THEN WHO CAN STAND AGAINST HIM AND US THE AMERICAN CITIZENS!!!

          • kathy diamond

            Margaret Thomason, What a wonderful thing to say. Thank you. America needs a honest man more then anything. I believe in him

          • bill

            Right now I know a couple in a Christian food ministry who supporting Trump. They believe there are many important issues that must be met before any social issues to be addressed.

          • bill

            These are the growing pains like a woman in labor. American is at a turning point because of the darkness that has over come. lawlessness of our politicians a society in a sewer pit and some of the worst parenting then anywhere else in the world. There will be blood shed and violence unlike any other time in America’s history. America has already been transformed it can not function the way it has.

          • kathy diamond

            bill: I totally agree. I truly believe, that if they steal the nomination from Trump the PEOPLE WILL REVOLT like nothing this country has seen before. I also believe that THEY know this and are so used to us acting like sheep that they are in denial. That would be a big mistake. God Bless Us, and God Bless America

        • kathy diamond

          GO TRUMP, ALL THE WAY TO THE WHITE HOUSE

  • Citizentobe

    How many disappointments this loser is going to give us…?

  • Upaces

    You Coward, Romney…You knew you won and you didn’t even fight back!
    Yes! He was winning; and disappeared…only to come back a few days later AFTER Obama was announced as the POTUS…he said, “It was out of my control.”

    How could anyone trust anything he says after that!!!

    • Sherylynne

      Did you miss when, after the 2012 election, Romney said he only ran for office because his FAMILY WANTED HIM TO! He’s got a lot of nerve to be peddling a contested convention. He makes me ashamed to be a Republican. Loser. Loser. Loser.

      • John Carney

        I agree Romney is a loser, he needs to go home and SHUT UP !!!!!!!!

        • Margaret Thomason

          JOHN, I 000% AGREE WITH YOU. MY VOTE IS FOR DONALD TRUMP. THE NERVE OF TED CRUZ SENDING ME AN EMAIL THIS AFTERNOON ASKING FOR MY VOTE SO THAT HE CAN BEAT DONALD TRUMP. I DID NOT RESPOND BUT DELETED THAT EMAIL.
          GO DONALD GO!! GO DONALD GO!!!

          • John Carney

            I am not 100% convinced that Trump Is the answer we need,but from where I sit He can not be any worse than what we have in the White House now!

          • Margaret Thomason

            JOHN, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO VOTE FOR WHOM YOU WISH. IM NIT GOING TO SWAY YOU IN ANY WAY, BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT SPOKE TO ME AND TOLD ME THAT DONALD TRUMP IS THE MAN GOD ALMIGHTY HAS PUT HIS HAND ON TO BE OUR PRESIDENT. I CAN ONLY TELL YOU TO FOLLOW WHAT YOU FEEL, BUT AS FOR ME, I AM FOLLOWING GOD’S DIRECTION.
            GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR DECISION.

          • John Carney

            Thank you

          • Margaret Thomason

            John, I will say this much though. Be strong in what you feel and believe in. But most importantly, before you go to the polls to cast your vote, pray first and ask God our Father to direct you to whom will be the best man for this position. In all things acknowledge the Lord God and He will direct your paths.
            What I’m trying to say, is don’t listen nor believe every thing you see and hear on the tv screen nor the internet. Let God reveal and speak to you. You’ll never go wrong if you let God Almighty direct you.
            Take care and God be with you.

    • kathy diamond

      Upaces, You Can’t. This guy had the Presidency in the bag, and he took orders from someone & threw the nomination. He is a coward, sneaky, user, phony. With that fake smile on his face he campaigned with Cruz just to hurt Trump, he must have received another order. What a creep & he misused his Religion as a tool to sway the mormans and THE MORMANS fell for it. Are they a religious group, or a CULT?

      • Upaces

        I didn’t consider that point of view. Thank you!

        • kathy diamond

          Upaces, Pathetic isn’t it

      • Margaret Thomason

        Kathy, Mormons is a CULT NOT A RELIGION.

        • kathy diamond

          Margaret Thomason, Oh My God. I was guessing by the way they followed Romney. That is awful
