Simple, short, and sweet:

The Republican establishment which is married to the big interests, the donors, and corporate America does not want someone like me (that is not working for the elite that controls the party).

I receive NO MONEY from the rich corporations and i will work for the average American.

The establishment wants a member of the establishment as the nominee, make no mistake about that.

At most call Romney an ass kisser loser and move on. No need to refute all points in Romney's speech.

Trumps ratings could go up on the polls.

Well said. This may be the best "non"-endorsement Trump ever got.

I'd make it even more simple, and shorter:

Laugh and then say, "Who cares, you lost."

This meme that a multi-billionaire businessman is some kind of anti-establishment figure who's going to take on "corporate America" on behalf of average Americans is absolutely hilarious. I can't believe some people buy into it.

Was Trump part of corporate America? Seems to me he was a pretty independent real estate tycoon. I'm not aware of him being on the boards of any corporations other than his own.

Please enlighten.

Keeping with the Bada-Bing approach thus far. This

He should say, "Mitt is right. I would be very bad for America. I just did this to show how stupid and gullible Republican voters are. I proved my point, and am now suspending my candidacy."

I would say I DVRd the speech and haven't watched it yet.

What's even funnier is you seem to want to believe that HILdebeast, who is bought and paid for by corporate America, is somehow the people's champion

Knowing Trump, his response will be something like this and he won't touch on any of the points Romney made. Trump knows how to play the game. Let them keep insulting him and just roll with the punches. He knows majority of America loves him and he isn't going to rock that boat.
