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

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.

The only way Mittens would run for POTUS in 2020 is if PT decided not to seek a second term. If the demoncraps prevail in 2018 and create a total gridlock, PT might decide to chuck it.

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.

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,

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

Romney Loses Utah GOP Convention

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

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.

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.

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

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.

WINDSOR, England – Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s big day has come, and the sun is shining outside of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle where early guests arrived about four hours before the royal wedding is set to begin.

Those guests will watch the wedding from a designated area outside of the castle, while
