Game on: Obama Calls Romney

Romney won the GOP nomination last night, which Romney's Rump Trump-a-Dump thundered upon. It shows a great lack of awareness on Romney's part. Trump went on a birther rant across the TV world, and on CNBC Trump actually promoted his new Trump mattress. Seriously. It's made by Serta. Trump doesn't promote others. He promotes himself. Romney should've known that.
This morning, Obama called Romney to wish him well:
President Obama telephoned Mitt Romney on Wednesday to congratulate him on securing the Republican presidential nomination, and told Mr. Romney he looked forward “to an important and healthy debate about America’s future,” a spokesman for the Obama campaign, Ben LaBolt, said.

The president, Mr. LaBolt said in a statement, “wished Governor Romney and his family well throughout the upcoming campaign.” That may be the gentlest thing Mr. Obama says about Mr. Romney for the foreseeable future, as both candidates settle into a steady streams of attacks on each other in an increasingly rancorous campaign.
