Romney 2020? Republicans speculate
that Romney´s likely Senate run is
the start of something much bigger

Business Insider, by Allan Smith and Eliza Relman

Posted By:tisHimself, 1/21/2018 2:16:43 PM

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and

Total nonsense and BS - he’s going to run as senator but not even bother to serve half the term?

The man is a fool and I’m ashamed I ever had to vote for him.

Not again. Romney is smart and very successful but he lacks one thing. That one thing is the ability to get into a nasty political fight with a low life democrat. Democrats will lie and cheat and do anything to destroy you and your family. Its why he lost to Obama. With all of the red flags about Obama, Romney let him skate of every issue. He refused to go after Obama for whatever reason. Trump has the ability to go after someone and protect himself. Its why he won. He refdused to roll over for the Clintons or anyone else. Romney should just stay home. Got it.

Mittens is DONE, and if the RINOcrats endorse even a hint of AMNESTY or keeping the LOTTERY, or continuing to allow CHAIN MIGRATION, the RINOS will be weakened.

If the memo showing direct interference and a conspiracy of collution going on and the House republicans don´t let the public see it and Hithery, Comey, Rice, Lynch, and Nobama don´t get properly outted, the GOPe is finished for completely going along with the scandal

This guy is such a loser, a globalist and anti-Trumper that he is probably a Barry Soetoro/Valerie Jarrett and George Soros favorite. It may be impossible to stop a guy with that kinda support behind him.

Plus Swamp Master McConnell is willing to spend millions of our dollars on him. Imagine the wave of commercials that will be coming out.

I guess we can expect to see a wave of illegals to start lining up in Utah for the votes just in case the average Utah citizen isn´t brain washed enough to vote for this carpet bagger.

If Romney runs for and wins the senate seat, well, I am not going to second guess the voters of Utah, a state I have never even visited. And IMO any Republican is better than any Democrat when it comes to the key issue of votes on judicial nominees.

Having said that though, I do wonder why traditionally GOP states such as Utah and Arizona have such thin benches. Why haven´t their state legislatures bred promising talent for the national level?

I have contributed to Republican candidates running in other states. I will contribute to the most conservative, likely Republican winner in the Utah Senate primary (if it isn´t Romney); and to the demon-crat if Romney gets the Republican nomination for the Senate.

Never again Romney.

And since the article raises the idea of senators running for president, why repeat the insanity? A senator is a kibitzer, (one who looks on and often offers unwanted advice or comment).

If the wimpy Republicans nominate Romney over a sitting President Trump in 2020 they will lose the election because a big percentage of Trump supporters would stay home, there is no doubt about that.

The Republican Party has been known as the "Stupid Party" for a longtime,and there is a small chance that they might try to do that, because especially the DC Republican politicians would love to get rid of Trump, so that they could get back to the business of making money even if the Democrats are running things, that´s how the Republican segment of the DC Uni-party has worked.

Born to serve?

As we try to assess what Mitt is up to I think we project our own insides onto his motives.

He felt that he was a flawed candidate when asked to run again or after his 2012 loss. It would take a very significant need of the country or his well liked GOPe or his vision of what the GOP should be is my assessment.

He sent himself out to be an opposition voice to obama when GWB was setting the Bush clan´s example of not interfering with a sitting president.
I don´t think the dems took the Bush example of class to heart. LOL?

Democrats steal elections, and Republicans throw elections.

Romney´s goal has less to do with winning, and more to do with Trump losing. RINOs would be perfectly content with a Democratic President.

Democrats are tyrants and bullies. Republicans are sneaks and backstabbers.

Mitt Romney’s Mormon Mission
Slate, by Max Perry Mueller    Original Article
Posted By: Tishimself- 2/20/2018 11:26:37     Post Reply
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 kicked off his run to replace Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) Friday. As Romney makes his bid to become a new Never Trump pole in the U.S. Senate, here are some of his most notable forays into politics since losing to Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. 1. Trump is “A Fraud, a Phony:” Romney’s most celebrated re-entry to the political seen came with his March 3, 2016 disavowal of then-candidate Donald Trump, who was surging on his way to succeed Romney as the Republican nominee. “Here’s what I know.

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

Mitt Romney said Friday that the nation must act swiftly to address the scourge of gun violence, stating that he was open to tougher measures like "enhanced background checks" if they would help keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. "What happened is unthinkable and unimaginable," he said after offering prayers for the victims of the Florida shooting. "We must take action to prevent tragedies like this from happening again." Speaking at a fundraising dinner held by Utah County Republicans in his first official appearance as a U.S. Senate candidate, Romney said he hoped to see the state generate

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.

A travesty occured in the chambers of Congress last night and early this morning. Republicans in Congress exposed themselves as hypocrites and frauds by passing an unconscionable two-year budget deal that will explode this year’s deficit and add $1.5 trillion to the debt. This is a level of spending that is three times larger than government spending in President Obama’s final year in office. A majority of Republicans in both chambers of Congress voted for the bill, and President Trump signed it Friday morning. Whatever pretense of fiscal conservatism the Republican Party once professed has vanished from all but a few

One day last March, Mitt Romney and Senator Orrin Hatch sat together in a hotel suite on the top floor of the JW Marriott hotel in downtown Washington, a few blocks from the White House. After eating lunch, Hatch revealed why he had called to meet with Romney, who happened to be in town to deliver a keynote address before an annual meeting of the American Apparel & Footwear Association. The seven-term Republican senator had been mulling retirement, and he had an idea: It was time for Romney’s political comeback.

Mitt Romney hasn’t even officially announced his candidacy for U.S. Senate, yet Republican leadership is already seeing stars. According to a Republican donor with direct knowledge, Senate GOP leaders have expressed an early interest in having Romney succeed Colorado Senator Cory Gardner as chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The role involves leading the Senate GOP’s fundraising arm and helping recruit and vet prospective GOP candidates for the upper chamber. A Republican source close to Romney confirmed that the idea of the Utah Republican taking over the NRSC has generated chatter in recent weeks. On Thursday afternoon, Gardner placed a call

Former Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal put forward some tepid criticism of President Donald Trump in an opinion column authored for the Wall Street Journal Wednesday (Jan. 31). Jindal credited Trump with putting conservative judges on the federal bench, helping to pass corporate tax breaks and rolling back environmental regulations, but Jindal also declared: "Mr. Trump is a man, not a movement; he embodies executive strength, not a philosophy." "It is possible that it took him to broaden us and that our subsequent existence will depend on his disappearance," Jindal wrote of the Republican Party in the Wall Street Journal piece. "We need

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

Former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson served only three years in that role; she was reportedly fired in 2014 for an ill-founded complaint about her compensation and for her "brusque" workplace manner. Her editorial competence was not questioned, however. In the era of #MeToo equalizing the perpetrators of rape with those of inadvertent microaggressions, perhaps no one remains in elite New York media qualified to make such a judgment, anyway. This week, Abramson´s reputation seemingly landed her a 4,000-word New York magazine cover story, which resurrects the sexual harassment complaints against Justice Clarence Thomas:

Outspoken leftist and "Grey´s Anatomy" star Ellen Pompeo challenged Fox News host Laura Ingraham, whom she referred to as a "b****", to a physical fight on Friday. For real. "Someone tell this b**** to meet me outside," wrote Pompeo, referring to Ingraham, via Twitter. "Im [sic] so not in the mood for playing nice or polite this week." (Snip) The actress was reacting to a video clip, which she quote-tweeted, of Ingraham suggesting NBA star LeBron James quit the political activism and "shut up and dribble" — a reference to her 15-year-old book titled "Shut Up & Sing." Pompeo continued the taunting,

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook and chair of the Economic Security Project, has a proposal to attack the problem of rising income inequality through a basic income, a system of wealth distribution in which people receive a standard salary just for being alive. And he wants to pay for it by raising taxes on the one percent. (Snip) To pay for this, Hughes proposes bringing tax rates on the top 1% of earners in the country to 50% — which is in line with the historical average, he said. The idea is to provide people with a reliable income

DALLAS, Texas-A leader in Dallas politics does not want the National Rifle Association to meet in his city. Mayor Pro Tem Dwaine Caraway is urging the NRA to find a new home for its annual convention. He says the meeting is not appropriate in Dallas in the wake of last week´s school shooting in Florida. Caraway also points to the past tragedies in Dallas, including the 2016 ambush that killed five Dallas officers, and the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. "It is a tough call when you ask the NRA to reconsider coming to Dallas. But it is putting

GOP Utah Senate candidate Mitt Romney is changing his tune on President Donald Trump from where he was one year ago. Trump endorsed Romney late Monday evening, giving the former failed presidential candidate “full support and endorsement.” Romney responded almost immediately, thanking the president for his kind words and for backing him the upcoming election. “Thank you Mr. President for the support. I hope that over the course of the campaign I also earn the support and endorsement of the people of Utah,” Romney tweeted late Monday evening. Romney’s statement Monday is strikingly different from ones he has previously made

Los Angeles County´s homeless population is increasing faster than the supply of new housing, even with the addition of thousands of beds in the last two years and millions of dollars beginning to flow in from two ballot measures targeting the crisis, according to a long-awaited report by the region´s homelessness agency. The report showed that officials two years ago far underestimated how much new housing would be needed when they asked city and county voters to approve the tax measures. (Snip) Providing permanent housing for the county´s chronically homeless population would require more than 20,000 new units, about 5,000 more

“From my cold, dead hands!” – Charlton Heston Liberals love to fantasize about confiscating every gun in America. It may be their most beautiful dream. Liberals get control of the Supreme Court and ignore the Second Amendment; Washington makes gun ownership illegal; almost all the guns come pouring in or are destroyed; a few hapless Jim Bobs who won’t get in line get shot up by the cops and then the government is free to do anything it wants and if people don’t like it, well, what are they going to do about it without guns? Let me suggest a less happy,

President Trump said Tuesday he has asked the Justice Department to regulate "bump stocks," the firearms accessory that can be used to make semi-automatic weapons fire at a rate similar to automatic weapons. Trump´s move came less than a week after the Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, and several weeks after a shooter in Las Vegas used bump stocks to killed dozens of people. "Just a few moments ago, I signed a memorandum directing the Attorney General to propose regulations to ban all devices that turn legal weapons into machine guns," Trump said. "I expect that these critical
