Romney open to new gun measures
CNN, by Maeve Reston

Original Article

Posted By:Tishimself, 2/18/2018 1:54:54 AM

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

Severe conservative alert.

FTA --- After speaking with reporters at the end of the night, Romney -- who once traveled in a fleet of SUVs with a full Secret Service detail -- stepped into his pickup truck and drove off alone.

We get it. Romney is a man of the people. /sar

It´s sickening to think that after all these years of waiting for the self-aggrandizing, backstabbing RINO McCain to finally get out of the Senate, he´s not even gone yet and is already about to be replaced with his clone.

Republicans who betray conservatives do so because they have presidential aspirations and want the press on their side. But if they actually enter the presidential political arena the media will turn on them instantly. The media could not wait to dump on their pals McCain in 2008 and then Romney in 2012. How stupid is Mitt Romney? Very.

Stinking carpetbagger is just obeying his owners. What another poster said is true. What good is it to get rid of one sellout (McCain) if we are to replace him with another sellout (Romney)? Dont we have too many of those now?
Utah voters, it may be time to consider the democrat. The GOPe is just so stupid, after all that has happened in the last year and a half they still dont get it.

Utah is the state that brought you Black Gun coffee and Christmas Carols played out with AR-15s on steel plates. As I drove through the famed Emigration Canyon after work last week when the weather was warm, I saw a truck parked on the shoulder and a fellow scrambling up a coulee with a long gun and target. This, just minutes outside a major metropolitan area. In the fall, those same roads just outside town are wall-to-wall archery hunters. I don´t think Romney is the guaranteed success the media thinks he is. But we need a viable alternative.

Keeping guns out of the hands of the mentally ill sounds like a good idea. However, since the government can´t keep heroin out of the hands of the addicted, it isn´t likely to work.

This is what Romney does.

Mitt Romney serves the left more effectively than one of their own. A Democrat would be just one more partisan operative waging political war against the Republicans. Whereas a Republican who reaches across the aisle provides crucial validation that the Democrat positions aren´t just anti-American insanity.

Mitt Romney will be that Republican. He will provide crucial ammunition to the Democrats and the media when they really need it. I repeat: When ObamaCare was passed, not one Republican voted for it. That prevented the media from presenting ACA as a bipartisan initiative, and forced the Democrats to wholly own a piece of political garbage.

Mitt Romney will give them that vote. He will position himself as a Republican statesman willing to reach across the aisle to secure what´s best for the American people. In reality, he´s a salesman who specializes in selling us out.

This is what Romney is. Vote for him, and you imperil our President and the country we are trying to save.

Anybody But Romney.

I think we´re overreacting here. Romney was a disappointing presidential candidate, to be sure, but let´s not let that distort our assessment of his remarks in this instance,

Take another look at the article. The headline is crafted to elicit a knee-jerk response. The state-based initiatives Romney endorses here would not threaten our Second Amendment rights in any way, and might even do some good at the margins. And as to ´enhanced background checks", well, none of us wants psychos to have access to guns and proposals of this sort are going to run aground in a tangle of HIPPA and privacy laws.

Like everyone else here I´d prefer to see someone more conservative than Romney take this Senate seat, but if no one with conservative cred and statewide appeal is available, hey, you gotta go with the army you have.

With respect #26, not being fooled is one thing. That´s a good start. But if the state´s political machinery cannot produce an appealing alternative, what then? Sit back in a huff ad let a Democrat take the seat? That would be far worse than Mittens. Think judicial nominations.

Romney is running for POTUS. He will pose himself as a moderate (whatever that is these days). Call for "common sense" gun control and show that he is open for amnesty. He thinks that will beat Trump in the primaries and then beat whoever the Dems throw out there. He might be right about beating the Dem candidate but he can´t defeat Trump.

Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith, the state’s commissioner of agriculture and commerce, is expected to be named by Gov. Phil Bryant during a news conference today in Brookhaven as the interim replacement for Thad Cochran in the United States Senate. Hyde-Smith, 58 of Brookhaven, would be the first woman to serve the state as a member of the U.S. House or Senate. As the interim senator, Hyde-Smith is expected to run in the November special election that will be held to elect a replacement to complete Cochran’s current term that ends in January 2021.

The Republicans’ central Senate super PAC is making a major push to ask its donors to give directly to GOP Senate candidates, including by enlisting top GOP strategist Karl Rove to solicit donations. There is heightened urgency for candidates to step up their fundraising game after Tuesday’s 18th Congressional District race in Pennsylvania, said officials from the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC that is a part of the American Crossroads network of big-money GOP groups founded with help from Rove. GOP outside groups poured heavily into the race — a reliable Republican district that President Trump carried by 20 points in

Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is under attack in his race to replace retiring Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, in a new ad released Thursday labeling the former Massachusetts Gov. as an establishment “flip-flopper” with “liberal Massachusetts values.” “The D.C. establishment loves Mitt Romney,” the ad narrator states. “But Utah voters have a better choice.” The ad released by right-wing primary challenger Utah attorney Larry Meyers, brings back popular lines of attack that were used during Romney’s run for the White House in the 2012 election cycle, accusing Romney of changing his position on key issues important to Republican primary voters.

One of the Senate’s chief dignitaries is apparently done mincing words when it comes to policies — and those who back them — he disagrees with. Supporters of President Barack Obama’s 2010 health care overhaul are “the stupidest, dumbass people” Sen. Orrin Hatch has ever met, he said Thursday at a conservative think tank lecture, CNN reported. The 83-year-old Utah Republican, who is retiring at the end of his term next year, was delivering remarks about the GOP tax code overhaul at the American Enterprise Institute when he shifted gears to torch the Affordable Care Act.

With Orrin Hatch retiring, erstwhile GOP nominee and onetime prominent Trump critic Mitt Romney seemingly has a clear path to becoming Utah’s next senator. But a hard-right faction within the state’s Republican Party has taken a drastic step that could derail him. Over the weekend, the faction passed a bylaw that allows Utah Republicans to expel any candidate that qualifies for the ballot via signatures — the route Romney plans to take.

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´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.

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions.

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it
