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.

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.

Many liberals and critics are under the mistaken belief that President Trump is violating the rule of law and civil liberties by criticizing the Robert Mueller investigation and by ordering the Justice Department’s Inspector General to investigate whether or not the FBI spied on his 2016 presidential campaign. In fact, the president is behaving totally lawfully, and it is Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein who are acting unconstitutionally and who are violating Trump’s civil liberties. Presidents George Washington, John Adams, and Thomas Jefferson all gave orders to federal prosecutors to

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.

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.

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.

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

President Trump cannot block people from his @realDonaldTrump account just because he doesn’t like their political views, a Manhattan federal judge ruled on Wednesday.

The judge stopped short,

The NFL Players’ Association (NFLPA) on Wednesday criticized the league for its new national anthem policy. In a statement, the union said it would review the new policy and “challenge any aspect of it that is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement.” The union accused the league of contradicting its previous statements, and of ignoring players’ wishes in developing the new policy, which instructs that all team and league personnel should stand for the national anthem. “The NFL chose to not consult the union in the development of this new ‘policy,’” the union said in a statement. “NFL players have
