Romney ‘Can’t Understand’ Why Trump Would ‘Disparage’ ‘Heroic,’ ‘Honorable’ McCain

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 3/20/2019 8:08:56 AM

Freshman Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Tuesday evening said he cannot understand why President Donald Trump would “disparage” the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), whom Romney described as “heroic,” “courageous,” “patriotic,” and “honorable.” “I can’t understand why the President would, once again, disparage a man as exemplary as my friend John McCain: heroic, courageous, patriotic, honorable, self-effacing, self-sacrificing, empathetic, and driven by duty to family, country, and God,” Romney tweeted.


That´s because you are a pathetic moron who hasn´t been paying attention to McStain´s record of voting against the interests of his constituents and this country!

I don´t have any trouble believing that at all.
I´m positive he doesn´t understand.
I have no doubt he also doesn´t understand why PDJT was elected (hint: DJT actually campaigned and put forth some effort)

Mittens is a nitwit.

McCain circulated the utterly bogus and discredited fake “dossier” that Hillary paid for, in an attempt to undermine and reverse the 2016 election in what basically amounts to supporting a despicable “DeepState Uniparty” Coup Attempt.

That is sedition, and possibly outright treason. You loser doofus!!

Mittens is a nice man, but he has little in common with persons people who see their way of life being dismantled on a daily basis by the the socialists and attacks from the media.

The RINOs stand up for each other, but NOT the base of the party who wants republicans to stand on principle and NOT on what will sell out the nation.

It is not just that Nobama and the socialists gained an 8-year foothold moving at light speed towards socialism that has now come home to create a real threat to our way of life that upsets the base, it is that Mittens/Ryano so easily peddled the sell of our stability by kicking the can down the road on so many issues by their allegiance to the RINOs.

The evidence of this is how NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN voted for Nobamacare, but now the RINOcrts have taken over the party and WON"T vote AGAINST it or to protect our national security from the INVASION at the border.

The RINOs keep rolling over and playing dead because only a few still fight against the wave of idiocy that is proposed by the left.

Mr. Wikipedia tells me that Mitt got several deferments and various reasons. IMO, his daddy was the governor of Michigan and he could. This is only one of many things that Romney doesn´t understand. The Mittens received two 2-S student deferments. One 4-D ministerial deferment while a missionary. And, two additional student deferments thereafter.

Well, gee, Mittens, maybe it had something to do with that dossier and his spiteful vote to keep inflicting the country with 0bamacare. Not to mention all the other evil things he did during his career.

And I’m with #6 on both Romney and McCain.

Like rarely disparages like. That´s why Romney sees no problem with McCain - cut from the same cloth, politically.

The rest of America originally honored McCain as the ´representative´ of Vietnam POWs. But as he abused his status and our regard, we got fed up with him. The luster off, we saw him as the disingenuous Rat that he was. I´d rather not talk about him at all. But if certain people keep pushing his ´virtues´ I´ll start remarking about how they were anything but!!

For some reason,Romney seems committed to inheriting the title of republican "Maverick" that McCain so proudly held.

Sort of like a consolation prize for being rejected in the presidential campaign. Maybe that is how McCain saw it, too.

Mitt is "campaigning", rounding up the #NeverTrump crowd and other GOPe dissidents in the hopes/expectation that Trump will NOT be a candidate in 2020 after he is put through a political steam-wash-and-rinse cycle that will include "serious" threats of impeachment going into primary season.

What do you think Weld is doing, getting Mitt´s band back together? Running for President?

Amusing if only because when looking back to 2008, Romney supporters did as little as possible to help McCain and were proudly responsible for the character assassination of Sarah Palin.

They were and remain allegiant to big government country club Republicanism. They continue to walk among us.

The quick shot on this is to say I can´t understand why Mitt Romney can´t shut up. There´s no reason for a statement like this, and no benefit to the Republicans from making it. Every time Romney speaks, he aids and abets the leftist narratives that are being constructed to destroy our President. Anyone with basic political integrity or even rudimentary party loyalty would keep his mouth shut and let our enemies do the criticizing.

But, of course, I understand exactly why I Mitt Romney´s making statements like this, and so does anyone else who´s been reading this site for the last 15 years. Politically, he has never cared about anyone other than Mitt Romney. He is a completely unprincipled political opportunist. In this case, he re-entered politics to pursue one specific agenda. To bring down the Trump revolution from within and restore the Republican establishment that his father did so much to create.

None of this is a surprise to anyone. What is surprising is those who spoke so eloquently in support of putting Romney in the Senate, who reassured us that he would be "fine," who vouchsafed that his conservative Utah constituents would keep him in line, have nothing to say at this point. Not even the usual alibis: that Romney was being misquoted, that his intentions were being misrepresented by an unsympathetic media.

I sometimes wonder about such folks. Were they really that stupid? Or are they so self-deceived, that they saw no conflict in deceiving others so blatantly? The less charitable assessment is they knew exactly what they were doing and supported Romney dishonestly because they agree with his agenda: Destroy President Trump and bring back the perpetual Republican establishment that brought us guys like Jeb, George, George, and John.

Woke Mittens! When McCain was running against you for President he and Governor Huckabee both conspired against you in one state. GET IT! McCain is an EVIL man, the only thing saving his reputation is his war record which is fake news. The part of the BS that gets me about McCain is the war story that he didn´t want to go home and leave the other captured soldiers behind in Vietnam. False he didn´t want to face his father and Grandfather because he was a songbird, he also tried to commit suicide.

I left the Republican Party the week John McCain pressed his thumb down to save Obamacare. He had campaigned and was in part re-elected to remove it and then changed his position to pettily payback Trump. Mitt forgot to add the word “hypocrite” to his list of McCain’s qualities.

Mitt Romney is nothing more than a Perfumed Prince,a Fop.

He never has had a connection with the majority of the American People. Not as a Corporate Raider with Bain Capital, not now.

Politicians such as McCain and Romney see the U.S. Senate as a House of Lords, and we need to stop electing them. It is not in our best interest.

I thoroughly disagree about Romney being a nice man. Nice men do not say and do things that Romney does currently and in the past. He is a guy who would willingly betray you, all while smiling oh so sincerely at the same time.

He is a pathetic example of a man who cannot succeed in the real world, not like Trump has done. It is starting to come out about some of his financial manipulations of companies while he headed Bain Capital.

I think that all the company bankruptcies from being deliberately front loaded with mountains of debt just so he and the managers could make money should put paid to Romney´s alleged skills at money making.

Romeny, are you actually so stupid and uninformed that you actually believe that McCain was honorable? McCain was a lot of things, but in the last 30 honorable is NOT one of them. I wonder how much honor he ever had, perhaps some in the POW camps, perhaps. Claims vary.

He pretended to be honorable, he claimed honor, but it was not true, at least for the last 25-30 years.

As one other poster has pointed out. Benedict Arnold was a genuine hero (more than McCain ever could even claim) before he wrecked it all by being a traitor. McCain wiped off entirely the very small bits of heroic and honorable conduct that he did by his despicable, mean, lying, political backstabbing in his later years, and probably corruption in the Keating mess.

You do not get a free ride forever if you do a small good thing. A man is judged by the totality of what he does.

McCain does not make it, no matter what fools like Romney say.

McCain sent David Kramer to spread the Dossier throughout the press AFTER Donald Trump was elected. McCain personally handed the false Dossier to FBI Director James Comey. McCain gave US the thumbs down and Obamacare lives on, it could have been saved if he only had told beforehand he was going to vote no. McCain-Feingold was a way of giving President GW Bush a black eye. McCain was a warmonger that responsible for Syria, Libya, who met with al-Baghdadi before he was the Caliph. McCain was a Globalist. McCain was small enough to plan his funeral to ensure President Trump and Sarah Palin were excluded. A truly small man, like vulture Mitt Romney.

Maybe because the guy was a vain vindictive skunk who went to extreme lengths to betray his party’s chosen candidate for President both before and after the election, leading to the Constitutional crisis of one executive department trying to control the government thru their unconstitutional manipulations. History will be far harder on McCain than Trump has been.

I am sorry that McCain was held prisoner during the Vietnam Nam war. I’m sorry his family has to hear what McCain was doing behind the scenes. In the end he did not think of his country or party, but only his own wounded pride.

Meanwhile the country is in a civil war.

He can´t understand it because he is McCain II: a squishy, unprincipled turncoat who loves to stick knives in the backs of fellow Republicans as long as it gets him TV time.

And in response to #31: Gov. Huckabee didn´t "conspire" with McCain to beat Romney. I worked on that campaign, and Huckabee flat-out beat Mittens by using his weaknesses against him to overcome his vast financial advantage. In fact, Fred Thompson conspired with McCain to sink Huckabee, coming into the debates and repeating a lot of garbage talking points about him not being a real conservative that too many Republican voters swallowed and some still parrot. They foolishly believed Thompson was a serious candidate, which he wasn´t. He was just a stalking horse for McCain. As soon as he fatally wounded Huckabee, he dropped out.

Huck still had a chance in a brokered convention if McCain had been kept from getting enough delegates, but Mittens then conspired with McCain, dropping out and throwing his support to him, and so we were stuck with Turncoat John for a candidate. I still have headaches from having to hold my nose hard enough to vote for either one of them in 2008 and 2012, which is testament to just how bad Obama was.

Not following, #41. Romney lost the GOP state convention vote to Mike Kennedy. During the follow-on primary, Kennedy was an option that Utah Republicans walked away from. Maybe they liked the way things work in Washington today. Orrin Hatch certainly felt Mitt Romney was the man for the job, and no one had spent more time in Washington making things the way they were than Orrin Hatch.

Utah had options. They chose Romney.

Trump was asked a question.. and Trump is every bit the maverick is McCain , two peas in a pod..John MCain rode on his family military record his courage as a prisoner, once out of the service he became more bitter of his own followers, being a maverick was his belief, but never fully supported The Bushes, lip service to Reagan and dispirsers ofcthe Republicans, so his finger was always in their eye... I bleed for his wife who played Back bencher, she is the accomplished one, raised the children, did the charity work, don’t believe she wrote a book and John probably 3 or more, fell to addiction and fought it off, she is the beautiful rich Lady that John used to advance his world travel life style.. John was no saint, his wife is.. God keep her safe!

What's Mitt Romney's problem? 22 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 5/21/2019 2:43:23 PM
After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Few things offend Bernie Sanders as much as people escaping from command-and-control government systems, even minority students whose parents are desperate to get their kids a decent education. The socialist wants to turn George Wallace on his head and not block black children from attending traditional public schools but block them from exiting them for something better. The New York Times the other day wrote a long, devastating report on the then-Burlington, Vt., mayor’s love affair with the Sandinistas in the 1980s. So many decades later, his reflex is the same: If the Sandinistas wouldn’t favor it, he’s not inclined to like it much, either.

A brazen thief stole chemotherapy medication from an Oklahoma City man’s doorstep just minutes after it was delivered, delaying his treatment for brain cancer. James Mills, 43, said his planned round of chemotherapy on Monday would not happen after a hooded suspect swiped the potentially life-saving delivery from his porch on Saturday. “I checked the door and didn’t see the package,” Mills told KFOR. “I double checked and they said it had been delivered. I check the security cameras, and I saw the UPS driver deliver it, then about eight minutes later another individual comes up, grabs it and takes off.”

Spurned Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland — whose chance at a spot on the high court was derailed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — may have a key say on whether President Trump’s financial records are released to the House. Trump’s lawyers on Tuesday appealed a lower court’s decision ordering that the records be released to the House Oversight Committee to the Washington, DC, Circuit Court of Appeals — which Garland heads as chief judge. President Barack Obama nominated Garland to replace Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016 after Scalia’s death. But McConnell refused to even schedule a meeting of the Senate Judiciary Committee to consider Garland’s nomination,

Authorities have discovered a second homegrown Muslim terrorist training facility owned by a terrorist organization presided over by the son of jihadist iman Siraj Ibn Wahhaj. The FBI found the camp near Tuskegee, Alabama, and reportedly described it as containing a “makeshift military-style obstacle course.” Details are few. Researchers at WPMI-TV, an NBC affiliate in Mobile, Alabama, uncovered the existence of the second facility after combing through legal documents and reported on it April 29 but the national media only picked up the story in recent days. The April 29 report states: NBC 15 News uncovered a
Contempt vote on hold as House takes ´inventory´ of additional contempt charges against Trump administration 19 replies

Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., said Wednesday the House won’t take up a contempt measure against anyone in the Trump administration before the Memorial Day recess, which would push off any action until June at the earliest. Hoyer, told reporters Democrats are waiting to “take an inventory,” of more contempt charges against Trump administration officials related to the president’s refusal to fully cooperate with sweeping House investigations by six different committees. The Judiciary Committee last week voted to cite Attorney General William Barr with contempt of Congress for refusing to provide Congress with the

U.S. Attorney John Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut, attorney Joe diGenova said on Tuesday. It was revealed this week that Attorney General William Barr tasked Durham with examining the origins of the federal Russia investigation. In a Fox News interview, diGenova said Durham, who is a U.S. attorney in Connecticut, has been working for a couple of months. "Durham has already used a grand jury in Connecticut, they´ve already gotten documents, he´s already talked to the intel people," he said.

Presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY., warned Wednesday that “radical” Supreme Court Justices like Brett Kavanaugh put abortion rights in grave danger. "We used to believe in precedent in this country,” Gillibrand said during an appearance on MSNBC. “But under President Trump, he´s trying to upend the entire court system." Gillibrand was reacting to news that broke late Tuesday that the Alabama State Senate had passed a measure virtually outlawing all abortions within state lines— including in instances of rape or incest.
John Paul Stevens: Heller gun control decision the worst in 35-year Supreme Court tenure 22 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 5/15/2019 11:58:18 AM
Retired Justice John Paul Stevens is lambasting the Supreme Court´s 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision broadening gun rights, calling it the “most clearly incorrect” ruling of his 35-year career on the high court. “Heller is unquestionably the most clearly incorrect decision that the court announced during my tenure on the bench,” Stevens, 99, wrote in his new memoir, The Making of a Justice. The retired justice penned the main dissent in the Heller case, which established the right to keep guns for self-defense in the home. Joining Stevens’ dissent were Justices David Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg,

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., on Wednesday introduced an immigration bill aimed at curtailing the record-high number of immigrant families traveling from Central America to the United States in hope of attaining asylum. Graham´s bill would allow the Department of Homeland Security to immediately deport most unaccompanied children from Central America; double the number of federal immigration judges in order to more quickly decide asylum cases; force all asylum-seekers to apply for credible fear at processing centers in their home countries; and allow those in
Workers at ‘Soviet-style’ Park Slope Food Coop fighting for union 8 replies
Posted by ladydawgfan 5/13/2019 8:22:40 PM
It’s not all kumbaya and kombucha at the Park Slope Food Coop — where life under its socialist-tinged grocery store is apparently so oppressive that the paid workers are trying to unionize. Employees of the Brooklyn food collective recently alleged unfair labor practices by the co-op in a filing with the US National Labor Relations Board. In response, the crunchy-granola collective’s iron-fisted management threatened and punished those who support the effort — with one union-busting boss telling workers they “should have a backup plan” if their collective bargaining doesn’t bear fruit, according to a copy of the labor complaint

Vice President Mike Pence on Saturday elevated President Trump as a defender of religious freedom and told Liberty University graduates to muscle through criticism from the “secular left” as they live out their Christian faith, saying they’ll “be blessed” for it. Speaking to a friendly commencement crowd in Lynchburg, Virginia, Mr. Pence criticized the Obama administration for forcing nuns who care for the elderly to fight birth-control rules in court. And he slammed the “bevy of Hollywood liberals” who’ve promised to boycott Georgia as the state passes strict pro-life legislation.

Ocasio-Cortez says growing cauliflower

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday that growing cauliflower in community gardens is part of the “colonial” attitudes that her Green New Deal will stamp out. The New York Democrat, who introduced the proposal to tackle climate change by radically transforming the economy, posted a series of Instagram videos filmed in her home state talking about community gardens as a “core component” of her proposal. “What I love too is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It’s so important,” she said as she filmed a community garden in the Bronx. “So that’s really how you do it right.

The Nevada Senate approved Tuesday a National Popular Vote bill on a party-line vote, sending the legislation aimed at upending the Electoral College to the governor. Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Some Form of Socialism

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion. The Roper/Fortune survey is one of the oldest trend questions measuring attitudes on socialism in the U.S. Gallup's update of the question in an April 17-30 survey finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., joined the legion of “Game of Thrones” fans disappointed by the show’s finale. “I’m sad,” said Ocasio-Cortez in a video of the two legislators posted to Warren’s Twitter account Tuesday. “Disappointed about it.” “I was just really… meh,” said Warren. The pair bemoaned the arcs of the female characters who seemed prime to rule at the end of the series. Instead, one “went crazy” and the other settled for ruling only part of the continent. The lawmakers were not alone in their distaste for the series’ treatment of its female characters

The political zealotry of the federal judge who ordered ten years’ worth of Donald Trump’s financial records be turned over to the House Oversight and Reform Committee chaired by Elijah Cummings has been revealed with a highly unusual provision of his order. (snip) The remedy for potential political bias in a federal judge’s ruling consists of the appeals process, with the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and ultimately the Supreme Court able to reverse such a decision. But Judge Mehta’s order forbids this

After taking President Trump's endorsement to get himself elected senator, Mitt Romney has made quite a show of turning on Trump. The last two incidents have been notable: He declared GOP "maverick" congressman Justin Amash "courageous" for joining the Democrats and calling for the impeachment of President Trump in the House. He also made this ad hominem attack on Trump over the weekend, playing Puritan for us: On Sunday, Romney was back at it, attacking the president's character. "I think he could substantially improve his game when it comes to helping shape the character of the country," Romney said on CNN.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 19 replies
Posted by MissMolly 5/22/2019 3:57:46 AM
Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, accused the White House of "intimidating" former White House Counselor Don McGahn from testifying on Capitol Hill and said it was becoming "more and more difficult" to not consider President Trump's impeachment on Monday night. Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court. "You are dealing with a lawless president who is willing to go to any lengths to prevent testimony that might implicate him, that does implicate him," Nadler said. Nadler expressed that Trump's "lawless behavior"

The U.S. Postal Service on Tuesday started a two-week test transporting mail across three Southwestern states using self-driving trucks, a step forward in the effort to commercialize autonomous vehicle technology for hauling freight. San Diego-based startup TuSimple said its self-driving trucks will begin hauling mail between USPS facilities in Phoenix and Dallas to see how the nascent technology might improve delivery times and costs. A safety driver will sit behind the wheel to intervene if necessary and an engineer will ride in the passenger seat. If successful, it would mark an achievement for the autonomous driving industry and a possible

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
