Romney takes swipe at Trump
over ´s---hole´ comments, race relations

Fox News, by Bernini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:tisHimself, 1/15/2018 6:13:05 PM

Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”

Why shouldn´t we insist on the best? That´s the problem with "politicians". It took a political outsider to ask what now seems like an obvious question.

I had great hopes for Romney and was a strong supporter in 2012. He turned out to be a ´lightweight´ performer and not a strong Republican and not even a Conservative light.

He should run as a ´JFK´ Democrat.

Hey Mitt you might want to expand your news circle of influence beyond CNN and NBC. You might hear there are disputed accounts of what was said in that meeting.

If this is the best you can do I suggest you rethink running for Hatch´s Senate seat.

Romney knows the truth. But like any faithful d´rat, he wants to ´fly´ with the lies above it all. Apparently he thinks that will make him ´look better´ or more ´ethical´ somehow. If there was any doubt ...now we all know. Romney is just another s---rat with an R after his name. This should make McConnell want to spend another million to help him keep ´filling the swamp´ where some of the creatures are retiring.

Romney thinks he can copycat Trump with tweets, but it won´t work. Bitterness and jealousy does not attract much of a following.

I lived in the Dominican Republic in 1981. It was a hell hole then and has only gotten worse. It had a problem with illegal immigration from its next door neighbor Haiti. Haiti has gotten exponentially worse due to the earthquake. People don´t typically flee paradise. People do need to make their own countries better. Often I wonder if fighting is foreign war isn´t better then taking in millions of their people as refugees.

Romney is booster of global tyrants, encourages them to continue corruption and abuse of their citizens since US taxpayers will always be forced to take them in. Romney is the exact opposite of a decent, honest person. He´s very lucky he´s not in jail for running a $1 billion fraud in 2012. His son freely stated in Boston Globe and elsewhere that Romney had no interest in the job of pres., hated the whole idea of running, would´ve dropped out if he could have. Romney is a standard Sabotage Republican: to prevent us from getting the candidate we need and to constantly demean Republican voters. Romney, the GOP E, and the Democrat Party stand for exactly the same things: extreme globalism, open borders, endless foreign wars paid for by US taxpayers, massive free trade deals, and that the US is merely an ´idea,´ represents no geography, therefore US taxpayers are global slaves. Republican voters, half the electorate, still have no political party behind them.

He seems well dressed usually, I´ll give him that. As far as ´decent´ I think some of the companies he hollowed out and flipped would question that. Honest? Like saying one thing one day and retracting it before the day is out? Doesn´t lie? Come on, no one it that naive. He´s lying right now because he loves the pious ´high´ road and the press is encouraging this tool, till they tear the dope apart.

As far as cursing, no one knows what off the record tapes are hidden in leftist drawers, and if cursing is the new standard for holding office, every democrat I´ve known will have to leave.

I suppose if you need a lightweight, ´professional´ politician who is very rich and looks like a 1958 movie version of a President, Mittens is your man. Plus it will help him get his own PLANET after he dies according to his made in Palmyra, NY religion.

After time, there are certain adjectives that come to mind when national figures take it upon themselves to repeatedly criticize President Trump, adjectives such as arrogant, haughty, lofty, pompous, pretentious, and snobby. A Proverb also comes to mind, “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18)

Referencing America’s history being “inconsistent and antithetical,” it would be wise to consider the words of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower: “Neither a wise man nor a brave man lies down on the tracks of history to wait for the train of the future to run over him.”

I feel as if I´ve waited my entire life for the wonderful release of no longer having the preening, self-aggrandizing, morally-superior, backstabbing John McCain in the Senate. Now, the minute he´s leaving, we´re going to get another one in the form of Romney? Please, Utah voters: don´t curse America the way Arizona voters have done for so long. You can do better! Just because he´s a big name doesn´t mean he should be handed the job on a silver platter so that he can put his own ego above your interests in Washington.

We may not get Beyoncé at the Met Gala this year, but at least we get ... Mitt Romney? Um, yes, the 2012 Republican nominee for President arrived with his wife, Ann Romney, at Anna Wintour´s annual extravaganza. The former Governor of Massachusetts, who is currently running for a Utah senator seat, followed the black tie dress code, stepping out in a tux, while Ann arrived in a collared emerald grown. Romney is one of the most well-known Mormons in the public sphere, so it´s surprising he and Ann didn´t embrace the religious theme with a bit more gusto. At the very least,

Liberal commentators and media figures mocked former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for saying that “hot dog” is his “favorite meat.” Romney, now running for a Utah Senate seat, made the comment at a dinner organized by his campaign, according to a profile of the candidate by the Washington Examiner. “My favorite meat is hot dog, by the way. That is my favorite meat,” Romney said. “My second favorite meat is hamburger. And, everyone says, oh, don’t you prefer steak? It’s like, I know steaks are great, but I like hot dog best, and I like hamburger next best.” Social media users were quick to jump on Romney for the quote,

Former GOP presidential nominee and current Senate candidate Mitt Romney praised President Trump´s first year in office on Tuesday, saying it was similar to what the first year of a Romney administration would look like. In response to a question from a voter in Utah, Romney seemed to indicate that he largely approved of the policies pursued by the Trump administration during Trump´s first year in the White House, calling it "better than expected," the Washington Examiner reports. “His first year is very similar to things I’d have done my first year,” Romney said.

California Rep. Tony Cárdenas, a junior member of Democratic leadership, is denying through a lawyer allegations of child sex abuse raised in a lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles County. The lawsuit did not name Cárdenas, describing the defendant, John Doe, as “an elected politician in Los Angeles County.” California law prevents the naming of the defendant in court filings for civil cases involving child sex abuse “until there has been a showing of corroborative fact as to the charging allegations against that defendant.” But for reasons not explained in the statement his lawyer Patricia Glaser provided reporters, Cárdenas has decided

The 76-year-old Nobel laureate, whose songs in his 13 album “Bootleg Series” include the titles “Moonshine” and “Copper Kettle,” says he will debut a line of whiskeys next month. “You don’t always find inspiration,” he said in a statement to The Guardian. “Sometimes it finds you. We wanted to create a collection of American whiskeys that would each tell a story.” Dylan is partnering with liquor entrepreneur Marc Bushala, and their distillery will be located in a former church in Tennessee.

Romney Loses Utah GOP Convention
Derailing Senate Coronation

Months before 84-year-old Utah senator Orrin Hatch announced his retirement, polls showed Mitt Romney easily winning the race to replace him. When Romney received Hatch’s blessing to enter the contest, and quickly secured an endorsement from President Trump, he had every reason to think that he’d sail to victory. But that’s not how things work for Willard Mitt Romney. Romney was narrowly defeated at Saturday’s Republican state convention, receiving 49 percent of the vote to state Representative Mike Kennedy’s 51 percent. That means he’ll have to face a primary race, like some pleb who wasn’t governor of Massachusetts and the 2012

"I will make that decision down the road," Romney, who is running for US Senate, said in an interview with CNN as he waited for his turn to speak at the Utah GOP convention where he was vying for his party´s nomination. "As a person of political experience, if I endorse someone, I´ll want to know what´s in it for Utah and what help would he provide for

Major names on Wall Street and in the Republican establishment are buying into Mitt Romney´s run for Senate, particularly as Republican lawmakers are looking to him as a future leader within a congressional caucus that is struggling to find its identity. According to first-quarter filings, Romney has been quietly receiving the financial backing of some of the most powerful names and donors in Republican circles, such as former Goldman Sachs CEO and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson. The early contributions are not necessarily big, but they indicate a coordinated effort to push the former Massachusetts governor and presidential

There is a kind of modernity to the 19th-century story of New York archbishop John Hughes, in terms of three issues we still have cause to ponder in the United States: namely, the nature of community, the utility of any form of identity politics, and our national embrace of — and, in some quarters now, new skepticism about — multiple cultural identities. Hughes gave thought to the forces that were necessary to forge a tight-knit community, and his answers, if dangerous in our own day, seemed more reasonable to him. He did not share Bishop Benedict Joseph Fenwick’s gentleness when

Tim Draper is a rich man, but he understands he doesn´t know it all. His first attempt to divide California into six states made very little sense. So he went out and got some people who are experts on the subject. The result, Cal 3, is a political masterpiece. This could work. When California was admitted to the union in 1850 it had only 92,000 people, most of them scrambling for gold in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. That´s why California´s county lines are so screwy. Los Angeles County now has 10,000,000 people. Alpine County has 1,000. Cal 3 divides the

In today´s public dialogue, there´s a lot of talk back and forth over the transgender issue. And why not? Transgenderism has been made into a cause celebre by the cultural elite. Many, myself included, view this as part of the ongoing effort by the Left to separate America from God and tradition. For that reason, it is worthwhile to delve a little deeper into the issue than what is normally provided by what is claimed by transgender people themselves.

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

The man who is sixth in line to be king of Great Britain is getting married today and America has lost its mind. What does it mean to be sixth in the line of royal succession to an office that depends solely and exclusively on who your father is? It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

Boston — Black students at Harvard University are organizing a graduation ceremony of their own this year to recognize the achievements of black students and faculty members some say have been overlooked. More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

John McCain always said he’d go down fighting, and so he has, dickering from his deathbed over CIA nominee Gina Haspel and pre-emptively disinviting President Donald Trump from his funeral, then leaving as a legacy some fierce final words for the leader of his party, who is now a political enemy. All Trump displays is “a reality-show facsimile of toughness,” the six-term Arizona senator and former GOP presidential candidate, who for a generation of Washington politicians has defined genuine toughness, writes in his forthcoming memoir. The irony of McCain’s curtain-closing contretemps with the president is that it is clearly

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.

A Cambridge professor with deep ties to American and British intelligence has been outed as an agent who snooped on the Trump presidential campaign for the FBI. Multiple media outlets have named Stefan Halper, 73, as the secret informant who met with Trump campaign advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos starting in the summer of 2016. The American-born academic previously served in the Nixon, Ford and Reagan administrations. The revelation, stemming from recent reports in which FBI sources admitted sending an agent to snoop on the Trump camp, heightens suspicions that the FBI was seeking to entrap
