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

Original Article

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.

Nobama showed up sparingly for two years after being a senator--

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.

Romney Is a Misfit for America

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

Sometimes we look back a decade or so and reconsider our word choice. For instance, I used to call General Electric — with its heavy lobbying, its intimate ties to the White House, all its bets on green energy, on embryonic stem cells, on Obamacare, on industrial policy — the “for-profit arm of the Obama administration.” Those words were ill-chosen. Specifically, in describing GE, it was a mistake to use the word “profit.” No company has spent as much on U.S. lobbying since 2000 as General Electric. And no component of the Dow Jones Industrial Average has performed worse since 2000 than

Two newly minted gun control activists from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida are defending the FBI, while demanding that NRA "child murderers" dismantle and disband.

Adam Rippon, the openly gay figure skater who helped the United States win a bronze medal in team competition and became one of the biggest breakout stars of the PyeongChang Olympics, has gotten his first big break before the Winter Games have even concluded. Rippon, a darling of the competition for saying things that have been at turns smart, creative, and refreshing for viewers, has been hired by NBC as a correspondent for the rest of the Games. NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

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

Now that the gun control advocates have had their fifteen minutes of fame, let’s start focusing on the real issues impacting the rise in school shootings since that infamous day in Columbine in 1999. Issue number one that no one in the mainstream media or government wants to acknowledge: fatherlessness. Specifically, the impact of fatherlessness on the boys who grew up to become school shooters. Dr. Warren Farrell, author of the new book The Boy Crisis, explains: Minimal or no father involvement, whether due to divorce, death, or imprisonment, is common to Adam Lanza, Elliott Rodgers, Dylan Roof and Stephen Paddock. In the

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

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence. Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as
