Run, Mitt, Run
Washington Post, by Dana Milbank

Mitt Romney: Your country needs you. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has been reluctant to announce a primary challenge to Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah, the longest-serving Republican senator in history. But America needs Romney to step up, to restore dignity to the Senate — and to save the country from the embarrassment Hatch has become. Hatch, long the picture of conservative rectitude, was once a conscientious legislator, even partnering with Ted Kennedy when he thought poor kids were getting a raw deal. But Hatch, the Senate president pro tempore, has undergone a grotesque transformation this year, his 84th on earth

Now that Hatch is unabashedly in the Trump column, the WaPo turns on him big-time.

The LIE-berals know they can´t get a Demon-RAT elected in Utah, so a RINO Republi-CAN´T is the next best thing.

And Mitt is the king of the RINO Republi-CAN´Ts...

Dana Milbank has never gotten over the fact that Slick Willie chose to stain a certain blue dress instead of Dana´s favorite blue shirt...

Mitt, you lost an un-losable election in 2012. Trump won an un-winnable election, except for the exceptional American electorate!

The liberal media will support the wimpy Romney up until the general election is set between Romney and whatever liberal Democrat who runs against Romney, then the liberal media will drop Romney like a hot potato and will support the liberal Democrat.

Mitt Romney is a perfect example of the type of politician that people became so sick of that they elected Donald Trump. Saying absolutely nothing in interviews to carefully avoid offending anyone, and part of the old establishment and goals of the uniparty. I really hope that other poliicians will change, but I fear that Trump is a unique one-of-a-kind, and we´ll return to the same old thing once he leaves the scene.

Now why would a liberal hack like Dana Milbank want Mitt Romney to run? Do you want him positioned to run against Trump in 2020 to split the Republican vote? That´s the only reason Dana wants Mitt to run for the Senate. He wants him to pull a Hillary who spent only 2 years in the Senate so she would be positioned for the presidency.

Why would any Republican listen to Dana? When they aren´t a Republican? Go ahead and listen to Dana, Mitt, and ruin any reputation you have left. After Mitt´s performance in 2012 and the way he attacked Trump in 2016, he´s finished.

Anyone else get the impression that Dana doesn´t think the Democrats can win against Trump in 2020? The Democrats want to put up another socially divisive America-hater pro-Muslim pro-Socialist pro-Communist globalista Democrat. Basically, another Obama. Don´t know who the Democrats will put up, but it will be someone in that meme. Problem is they cannot win with that. Too many people have caught on to the Democrats, and will never vote for them as they are. They need to split the Republicans to win.

The only test for office right now is the capacity for frank, truth-telling on a daily, combative basis. Because the Left is built on a foundation of lies that have gone unquestioned for two generations.

Retire, Dana, Retire.

Milbank is clearly out of touch with American voters.

He condemns Orin Hatch for supporting Trump, who won the support of the American voters and was elected President.

Milbank is nothing but an elite political hack who just doesn´t want to accept reality.

American voters rejected the failed policies of Hillary and Barack and tasked Trump with draining the swamp they populated.

If Dana is for it, it is a bad thing. This is a certainty, if you have no other information.

Romney is not a person I have ever liked. I voted for him, there was no doubt he was the lesser of two evils.

But, he is still an evil. I don´t like him, I don´t like about 85% of his politics. I wonder if Utah can be hoodwinked into voting for this jerk.

#27 comment gives a clue to why turnout for Mitt wasn´t same for Mitt as for Trump in some demographics--the safe minority to diss because the nation exempts them from hate crime laws for being mainstreamed.

Hatch will run in order to keep the finance committee in Utah fiscally conservative hands? look at the economy stats for Utah during the obama disaster years.

Orrin Hatch also voted for every democratic judicial appointee etc because he has believed that the party with executive power has the right to name judges etc. How constitutionally conservative of him. He was handpicked by President Reagan to run in Utah for a sure seat in GOP hands.

Why is Utah so securely in GOP column? Moral values and even more so for states rights-rights for freedom of religion.

Dana Milbank whistling in the wind because Mitt the Mormon will NOT run against Orrin Hatch. Cooperation, the antithesis of Pride and competition, still high in states majority subculture. Community above self?

I watched him years ago on the PBS panel shows on politics. He and E.J. Dionne and all the other fun Lefties. I remember his legs not reaching to the floor when he sat on a chair like the other grownups.

He has always been out of touch with the American people. He may be a diversity person. Representative of the height challenged?

Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith, the state’s commissioner of agriculture and commerce, is expected to be named by Gov. Phil Bryant during a news conference today in Brookhaven as the interim replacement for Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. Hyde-Smith, 58 of Brookhaven, would be the first woman to serve the state as a member of the U.S. House or Senate. As the interim senator, Hyde-Smith is expected to run in the November special election that will be held to elect a replacement to complete Cochran’s current term that ends in January 2021.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is under attack in his race to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, in a new ad released Thursday labeling the former Massachusetts Gov. as an establishment “flip-flopper” with “liberal Massachusetts values.” “The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney,” the ad narrator states. “But Utah voters have a better choice.” The ad released by right-wing primary challenger Utah attorney Larry Meyers, brings back popular lines of attack that were used during Romney’s run for the White House in the 2012 election cycle, accusing Romney of changing his position on key issues important to Republican primary voters.

One of the Senate’s chief dignitaries is apparently done mincing words when it comes to policies — and those who back them — he disagrees with. Supporters of President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care overhaul are “the stupidest, dumbass people” Sen. Orrin Hatch has ever met, he said Thursday at a conservative think tank lecture, CNN reported. The 83-year-old Utah Republican, who is retiring at the end of his term next year, was delivering remarks about the GOP tax code overhaul at the American Enterprise Institute when he shifted gears to torch the Affordable Care Act.

With Orrin Hatch retiring, erstwhile GOP nominee and onetime prominent Trump critic Mitt Romney seemingly has a clear path to becoming Utah’s next senator. But a hard-right faction within the state’s Republican Party has taken a drastic step that could derail him. Over the weekend, the faction passed a bylaw that allows Utah Republicans to expel any candidate that qualifies for the ballot via signatures — the route Romney plans to take.

Mitt Romney is finally going to Washington. And Romney is going there on a mission: to bring “Utah’s values” to the nation’s capital, he explained in a video last Friday kicking off his campaign to replace the retiring Orrin Hatch in the U.S. Senate. A Senate campaign launched from Utah is neither the starting point, nor the D.C. destination that Romney had long envisioned. A decade ago, the former governor of Massachusetts had hoped to make a trek to the White House south from Boston, where he built his sizable fortune and national profile.

Mitt Romney´s extensive resume has many Republicans looking to him to take on a role in the Senate as a political and moral counterweight to a president many in the GOP see as divisive and undignified. First he has to get elected. The 2012 GOP nominee for president announced Friday he is running for the Utah Senate seat being vacated by GOP Sen. Orrin Hatch. Romney, 70, is among the best-known names in U.S. politics. He has been a successful businessman, governor of heavily Democratic Massachusetts, Olympics rescuer and, more recently, one of his party´s fiercest critics of President Donald Trump.

During the interview, which took place on March 13, Clinton alleged that Trump is undermining the presidency in exchange for personal and familial gain. “He has undermined the office and used it to enrich himself and his family,” Clinton said. “Disregarded laws, ethical standards.” “He’s crossed into a territory of behavior and actions that are unpredictable, that are erratic, that are undermining the stability of the global order,” she continued.

Science fiction author Kim Stanley Robinson is one of the best-known names in a genre known for looking forward. However, not all writers in the genre look to the future for their ideas -- plenty are obsessed with moving backwards, from liberty back to tyranny. Robinson recently penned an op-ed in The Guardian that favors removing humans from most of the world, forcefully herding us all into cities.

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation.
