Here´s How Mitt Romney
Could Win in 2020

National Interest, by David Pring-Mill

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 11/18/2018 6:22:15 AM

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

I´ve already had my fill of this retread. Romney should run as a Squish-O- Crat.

Without the machinations of his "church" to twist whatever rules he needed twisting to "win" in Utah, he won´t stand a chance nationally.
We despise him in Utah but the rules were skewed for him.

What the hell is a Pring-Mill? Certainly not anyone who actually likes this country. Pimping a Socialist darling like Romney will not garner him any merit badge in the real world, only the snobbery lobby of the elitist left!

How charming that someone thinks there is any interest in gentlemanly political debate. Clinton was a manifest cad Obama got his start by destroying a man by using salacious private divorce testimony and now we have Trump - the first Republican who fights back. It is not going to get better.

Pring-Mill doesn´t speak for me. But President Trump sure does! I´m a conservative who is never weary of POTUS Trump leadership style. Thank God for our President Trump!
In fact, my blood boils when Romney "challenges" POTUS Trump. Mitten Romney never once challenged Obama´s leftist machinations.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!!!!!!!!! I am a conservative Republican and I have nothing but contempt for a man I once held in high regard and voted for. Not only because of his sniping from within the ranks, but also because he just sat there with a stupid smile on his face while Obama ran all over him in the 2nd debate, after he had won the first handily. He either is a total wimp or listens to advisors who are brainless. He never fights back (not that I don´t think Trump overdoes) but just sits there with that stupid smile on his face.

I don´t think he wants to run again. I think he wants to be handed the presidency if/when Trump is impeached, which will not happen, but Romney is dreaming of it imo, and so are those who put him there. Then he can restore the former terms of trade with China, which is the issue underlying everything.

I was a big Romney supporter in 2012, and I don´t regret it, because he would have been vastly better than Obama. Only an idiot would have come to a different conclusion and yet my fellow Americans gave Obama a second term. I still don´t understand that.

In the era of Trump, Romney has been nothing but a disappointment.
I am all in on Trump in 2020. Romney´s not even a blip on the radar.

In 2012 and earlier I supported and voted for Mitt Romney like I did McCain (because of Palin) anybody but Obama was my thought. Hell, I would have voted for Samuel the Goat Herder over Obama.
We have Donald Trump a fighter why should we go back to darker days with go along to get along uniparty hacks? It´s all in when 2020 gets here and the elitist Republicans have two years to learn that and start supporting the President.
Mitt Romney better learn that too.

FTA: "His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president."

Refined Republicans of the NR/country club stripe admire the image, not the the policy positions, and lofty rhetoric versus actual results. We love the globalist Poppy Bush because we could see ourselves as elite Yalie insiders. We love the liberal GW Bush because it´s fun to have a pretend cowboy as president. And we love the liberal Mitt Romney because we like the cut of his jib. As for me, if Romney runs in 2020, I´ll vote Constitution Party again, same as in 2012.

The Obamacare mess is rooted in Romney. He had the chance of a lifetime in the debate to take out Obama. He buckled under pressure. Why he ran for Senate is unknown but I guess he had nothing better to do. Trump is a leader. Did you see those two schmucks (Brown and Newsome) next to Trump yesterday? They had Nothing to say to the press and seemed uninterested in the fire debacle they created. Romney is of the same ilk as the Dems.

If the wimp Romney were to upset the street smart Trump in the 2020 Republican Primary Election, enough conservative Republicans would stay home on Election Day that the Romney Republicans would loose the General Election by a mile.

Trump might even run as an Independent and win the General Election, or if not, would counterpunch Romney so hard that Romney would not stand a chance. Electing Romney would be putting a RINO in the White House.

Mitt wouldn´t stand a chance against Trump in 2020. 2024? He would likely have to battle Pence, and would likely lose. Switching parties wouldn´t help Romney´s cause either. His best chance would be against a hypothetical incumbent Democratic President, but we don´t know when that would be. Mitt´s time may have come and gone.

Mittens will be president only in his mind. He was a lousy candidate against the 0bomination, yet he´ll fight to the death against Trump-give it all he´s got. Does he think he can go to Washington as a senator and challenge the president? Sure, that´ll make a lot of us happy. He just needs to go away; we are not all under the Utah system. Republicans are not in the habit of elevating our losers. That´s what dems do.

For months, we´ve been hearing about Mitt Romney´s good intentions in running for Senate, and his willingness to support our conservative agenda, from the same folks who backed him as the Conservative Who Can´t Lose in 2012.

For more than a decade, OP and I have been among a second group who explain what Romney will actually do based on what he actually is: An unprincipled political opportunist with no discernible commitment to anything except advancing himself and protecting the liberal Republican Establishment that his father was such a persistent cheerleader for.

I´m not always right, but if the first group referenced above is telling us Romney isn´t interested in the presidency and won´t run against the sitting president from his own party in 2020, there´s a good chance that´s exactly what will happen. I´ve gone even further and suggested that Mitt Romney will become a influential voice in opposing President Trump and, possibly, a decisive vote in removing him from office if given the chance.

That would be why some don´t want Romney to exercise his influence in the Senate. As I´ve said before, Mitt thinks President Trump stole his Daddy´s GOPe from him, and I think he plans to steal it back.

[For the record, I wrote the above at 9 a.m. this morning, and clicked preview instead of post by mistake. It was not written in direct reply to any of the above, and it is absolutely not directed at #28, who was as eloquently for Romney as I was emphatically against during the 2012 primaries. Once Mitt became the nominee, I supported our candidate, and I agree wholeheartedly with #28´s assessment now.]

Our president is already considering toning down some of his rhetoric. Orrin Hatch was a supporter of the president and anyone who can´t see the value of more constitutionalist judges as produced by the president´s election isn´t very smart IMO.

McConnell is establishment but gets his goal of more conservative judges done because of the power of President Trump.

It will be interesting to see how it all plays out. I doubt Mitt will grandstand like Jeff Flake. And for sure he will be calling or receiving calls from Orrin Hatch until he is settled in to his own role/job.

Mitt doesn´t need the senate to run for president-he has the name and the fame to do without the aggravation of mixing it up in the Senate IMO.

Susan Collins on 2020 GOP primary:
‘I see nothing wrong with challengers’
Boston Globe, by Staff    Original Article

Senator Susan Collins of Maine said Sunday she welcomes potential Republican primary challengers to President Trump while also declining to endorse the president’s 2020 reelection bid. Collins, who helped defeat Republican attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act through Congress in 2017, argued that primaries help shape policy by allowing ‘‘a lot of viewpoints to surface.’’ Several other Republican senators and elected officials have already endorsed Trump’s 2020 aspirations, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, and Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

In the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was asked on many occasions whether he would “accept the results” of the election if he were to lose. Democrats and their media allies demanded that he make a solemn vow to “accept the results.” It was never entirely clear what anybody thought the alternative to acceptance was: Donald Trump’s raising a revolutionary army and marching on Washington like Francisco Franco breaking the Siege of the Alcázar?

As that rarest of species in Manhattan – a single female and therapist who supports the policies of Donald Trump – I am routinely informed by my dates and peers that, in addition to my common, domestic lifestyle, I am "destroying the world." Finding someone whom I can share my life with is a priority, and I am on a mainstream dating site. After a favorable email exchange with a divorced guy, things moved to a phone conversation. He asked what I do. I said I am a therapist.

Paul Ryan: The Establishment

On Jan. 3, 2019, current House Speaker Paul Ryan gets to retire at the ripe old age of 48, but don´t worry -- we won´t be done with him at that point. He has many years of lobbying for six or seven figure salaries ahead of him until he is inevitably recycled by the GOP establishment to do what he does best: undermine and sabotage the ´America First´ agenda of President Donald Trump. Ryan has done such a poor job that it has become impossible for even the paid sycophants of Conservativism Inc. to whitewash his record.

In recognition of the brave and altruistic Americans who risk their health and safety for the greater good, Pentagon officials announced Thursday that the U.S. military would honor the sacrifices of NFL players by wearing their jerseys throughout December. “Every week, these men are out there on the gridiron, putting their bodies on the line for our country. Having our soldiers wear these jerseys and caps is the least we can do to show our support,” said Pentagon spokesperson Robert D’Amato, who announced that all active-duty soldiers would be sporting gear from all 32 teams to raise awareness

Biden/Romney 2020: It could happen

With his instant name recognition, early-bird polls consistently place former Vice President Joseph R. Biden as the top Democratic contender for president in 2020. Now comes a call for Mr. Biden to go rogue — or at least independent. “Biden should run on a unity ticket with Mitt Romney. It could totally work,” writes Juleanna Glover — who worked as an adviser to former President George W. Bush, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the late Sen. John McCain, and former presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush and Rudy Giuliani — and now serves on the Biden Institute Policy Advisory Board.

This is foiling the devious plans of Pope Francis, who deliberately scheduled his “abuse summit” six months out in the hopes that few would care about it by then. News of that quickie gathering of bishops scheduled for next February commanded little respect from the laity before this week, but even less now that its primary American organizer has been announced —

The Steward of Middle-earth

In 1975, Christopher Tolkien left his fellowship at New College, Oxford, to edit his late father’s massive legendarium. The prospect was daunting. The 50-year-old medievalist found himself confronted with 70 boxes of unpublished work. Thousands of pages of notes and fragments and poems, some dating back more than six decades, were stuffed haphazardly into the boxes. Handwritten texts were hurriedly scrawled in pencil and annotated with a jumble of notes and corrections. One early story was drafted in a high school exercise book. A large portion of the archive concerned the history of J.R.R. Tolkien’s fictional world, Middle-earth.

The fundraiser will be the PAC’s first.

Mitt Romney, who becomes a U.S. Sen. in January, has signaled he will be a thorn in President Trump´s side by slamming his reaction to Saudi Arabia´s role in the murder of dissident Jamal Khashoggi. Incoming Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, condemned Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s restrained response to Khashoggi´s brutal killing in Istanbul last month, calling the lack of punishment for Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “inconsistent” with “American greatness.”

It has been speculated that Mitt Romney’s Utah Senate seat could serve as a prelude to another Presidential run. In the most ambitious version of events, he could even challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 primaries, newly legitimized and augmented by his actions in the Capitol Building. This would allow moderate Republicans to reclaim their party’s mantle and unroot alt-right influences. But would Romney do it? His willingness to unequivocally challenge Trump could be seen either as a pro or con by Republicans, depending on their opinions of the sitting president.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs a break. The Bronx-bred democratic socialist heading into her freshman term in the House of Representatives announced Monday she’s taking some time off to take care of herself before she officially starts her new job — and she’s taking her supporters along for the ride. “I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure to be an eventful term,” the incoming New York congresswoman tweeted. “For working people, immigrants, & the poor, self-care is political — not because we want it to be, but bc of the inevitable shaming of someone doing

MSNBC host Joy Reid and her guest Elie Mystal spent a segment fantasizing about Ivanka Trump being in the “crosshairs” and openly scheming about how the best way to “get” President Donald Trump would be to go after his children. The sinister conversation, in which they urged the left to put the mother and wife “in their crosshairs” occurred on Saturday’s show. “This is the first time that we have Ivanka . . . in the crosshairs . . .

Dinesh D’Souza described Michelle Obama´s college thesis as “illiterate and incoherent.” The far-right author and filmmaker launched a scathing attack on the former first lady after she claimed that people at the most powerful organizations in the world were “not as smart” as some portrayed them to be. “Anyone who has read Michelle´s college thesis—a document so illiterate and incoherent that it was written, as Christopher Hitchens put it, in ´no known language´—will chuckle heartily at this one,” D’Souza wrote on his Facebook page, sharing a link to a Newsweek article that reported Obama’s remark.

The father of Jakelin Caal, who died in United States Customs and Border Protection custody, has reportedly hired a pair of attorneys and is challenging the Department of Homeland Security´s claims of how his daughter died. Nery Gilberto Caal released a statement, through attorneys, on Saturday, claiming that he and his daughter — whom Border Patrol says died of prolonged hunger and dehydration — were properly fed, and that they had not spent days in the desert before declaring their intent to seek asylum at an official border crossing in New Mexico last week.

AFP reported Saturday that “experts” say “Western powers fighting Islamist groups around the globe are condemned to a never-ending battle if they only tackle the symptoms and not the underlying causes of jihadist insurgency.” That is true, but these establishment “experts” have no idea of the actual underlying causes, and are recommending the same counterterror remedies that have failed again and again. “The West is on the road to winning all the battles and losing the war,” warns Katherine Zimmerman, who wrote a recent report for the American Enterprise Institute. On that, Zimmerman is actually right. But she and her

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) declared President Donald Trump was not going to get the U.S.-Mexico border wall “in any form.” “President Trump should understand there are not the votes for the wall in the House or the Senate. He is not going to get the wall in any form. Even the House which is a majority Republican, they don’t have the votes for his $5 billion wall plan. Ryan, afraid of what’s going to happen, sent all the House home until Wednesday night, a day and a

There are stirrings of discussion these days in philosophical circles about the prospect of human extinction. This should not be surprising, given the increasingly threatening predations of climate change. In reflecting on this question, I want to suggest an answer to a single question, one that hardly covers the whole philosophical territory but is an important aspect of it. Would human extinction be a tragedy? To get a bead on this question, let me distinguish it from a couple of other related questions. I’m not asking whether the experience of humans coming to an end would be a bad thing.

Joe Lieberman, former ´conscience of

Joe Lieberman, a Democrat-turned-independent who has backed Republicans, has found friends in yet another party: the ruling Communist Party of the People´s Republic of China. The former "conscience of the Senate" has been hired to represent China´s ZTE telecommunications company, which is basically a front organization for Chinese intelligence services. ZTE is under pressure in light of overdue U.S. government efforts to prevent it from entrenching a stronger position in the U.S. economy. With the U.S. now in a new cold war with Beijing, no former U.S. official, let alone a foreign policy hawk like Lieberman, should be serving ZTE.

An actress and model claims she had a clandestine eight-year affair with Woody Allen that began when she was 16 years old and underage – and included threesomes with the director and Mia Farrow in his penthouse, according to a new report. Babi Christina Engelhardt, now 59, told The Hollywood Reporter that she first caught the then-41-year-old Allen’s attention in October 1976 at famed eatery Elaine’s on the Upper East Side, where she dropped a note with her phone number. “Since you’ve signed enough autographs, here’s mine!” the star-struck girl scribbled. Allen soon invited Engelhardt

Chuck Schumer clearly thinks that he’s got a winning issue with blaming President Trump for a prospective “government shutdown” Friday, if no budget bill is passed that includes $5 billion for border wall improvements. Since he promises that no such money will be forthcoming from the Senate, he obviously anticipates the public reacting in horror over the Christmas holidays as federal employees labeled “non-essential” stay home. But Rep. Thomas Massey, a libertarian-leaning GOP House member from Kentucky, has published an amazing graph that shows how meaningless this “disaster” really is for almost everybody:

Death of The Weekly Standard

Neoconservatism is dead, long live American conservatism. That’s what I thought when I learned The Weekly Standard would be shuttered by longtime owner Clarity Media. The Standard was a creature of a particular time and place—the 1990s, the Bush-Clinton ascendancy, and Washington, D.C.’s insular, self-referential political class. As such, it never really fit within the broad flow of historic American conservatism. It was always, and intentionally, something different. So perhaps the magazine’s opposition to Donald Trump, his voters, and the America First agenda should come as no surprise. Max Boot described the magazine as “a redoubt of neoconservatism” in 2002
