Romney, the Tariffs Guy

Apparently that "free trade" crap doesn't apply to Establishment candidates.

"Mitt Romney has vowed to impose tariffs on China the day he becomes president," the liberal Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson wrote in late September 2011. And indeed Romney had.

The position that makes sense:  punishing Red China (among others) for mercantilist actions and stripping decent jobs from Americans CAN be held by such as Romney, but not such as Trump?

Don't get me wrong.  I'm #NeverTrump.  But I happen to be an American, not a Globalonist tweed-blazer-with-pipe-and-slippers twit.
