What's Mitt Romney's problem?

Original Article

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.

Comments:

Williard is still mad that PDT ran for President and WON, while his meager efforts and crappy campaign did not produce the same results. Problem is, Mitt wanted to run but didn't have the intestinal fortitude to fight for the victory.

His problem is as old as the hills. It is just plain old jealousy. I'm surprised his face hasn't turned green by now.

I suspect that most of us on this site have hardly been surprised at how Romney has tried to take up the mantle of 'maverick' after the passing of McCain. Perhaps 'gadfly' would be more apt.

His problem is that he is a nasty, hateful; evil loser RINO who desires to see his name in print.

GOP politicians coming out of Utah seem to have a portion of their brains missing or deformed. Call it the John McCain syndrome.

He's a globalist and a leftist. And Trump beat him politically, and that apparently angers him, much like McCain.

What's his problem? He's a two faced liar who picked the perfect weak, stupid non man, Paul Ryan, for a running mate. Together they made a dumb, conniving, back stabbing partnership...for whom I voted. Still can't believe it. Today I see the real man— formerly so carefully cloaked —who is out to do whatever harm he can to President Trump. And all under the guise of the Mormon magic underwear he puts on before doing his dubious deeds. Just go away, Mitt. I might have voted for you but I'm now all grown up and promise I'll never vote for anything you or Ryan or your ilk have your fingers in again. Never. You've shamed yourself enough and there's no need to keep spewing your phony..."oh, how much I care" routine.

Romney ran for president and got his butt royally kicked. Just like John McCain. Meanwhile, he thinks he is superior to Donald Trump, yet Donald Trump won and is his president now!!!! Same for John McCain (or at least until McCain took that quick trip to Hell). His jealousy is eating him alive, and so he is going to be as big a thorn in President Trump's side as he can -- no matter how destructive that is to this country!!! Just like John McCain did. In other words, he has become a full fledged Lie-Beral, and would be right at home in the Demon-Rat Party!!! For all Demon-Rats, it's about their own power, not what is best for the American people!!! Lie-beralism is the ultimate form of selfishness!!!!!

Romney is almost as anemic as Low-Energy Jeb(!). Trump ran rings around his competition and has the stamina of a person half his age. Losers like McCain and Romney can't figure out why anyone likes Trump. They should figure out that showing up is 95% of success. Hillary didn't bother to worry about entire states that she thought were in the bag for the democrats. Romney was not too proud to show up hat-in-hand for a job from Trump a couple of years ago. I think Romney is a bit upset that his superior attributes were not snapped up by the Trump administration. Just a case of sour grapes.

Don't blame us Mormons for Mitt and Harry Reid. I don't like his actions any more than you Catholics out there like those of Nancy Pelosi. I am constantly amazed that Mitt can only see fit to criticize those who are trying to give him and his family a chance at the freedom to be what every religious soul should want to be. I realize that PDT ruffled his feathers, but it seems that Mitt is willing to lose his soul and all that he stands for in the cause of getting even with those he is supposed to forgive.

What's his problem? He's another one whose nose is way out of joint because he feel s that he was owed the presidency and didn't get it. Then, he thought he was owed a cabinet position and didn't get that. He's mad because he had to settle for Senator.

Other than being a lightweight, not very smart, boring, untalented, cowardly, overly ambitious, moron Mormon who handed four years over to Barack Obama without a fight, Mitt's okay. It's unfortunate that good hair is no longer a qualification for the presidency. Yes, and as jealous as the plain daughter who has beautiful sisters.

Bernie Sanders flips off urban minority kids 1 reply

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.”
Trump’s subpoena appeal headed to

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.

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

"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

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,

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

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.

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.

Jerry Nadler’s cynical, cowardly show 27 replies

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

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

TAMPA, Fla. - The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops is urging Gov. Ron DeSantis to spare the life of convicted Tampa Bay serial rapist and murderer Bobby Joe Long. In a letter to the governor, the bishops asked DeSantis to commute Long's sentence to life in prison, specifically pointing out mitigating circumstances in Long's case. The letter reads, in part: "Since his sentencing, modern medicine has learned a great deal about the effects of brain trauma.

Australia’s dysfunctional, unpopular, conservative government (the Liberal and National parties, currently in coalition, sit on the right in Australian politics) held onto power for a third term in Saturday’s national election. This happened despite the fact that most analysts expected it to lose a large number of seats; despite being (seemingly) out of step with the nation’s emerging consensus on climate change, marriage equality, religion, and race; despite a chaotic tenure in office that has seen three leaders since 2016; despite a threadbare

If there was a reason President Donald Trump chose the small Pennsylvania town of Montoursville to hold a campaign rally, no one in the media is saying what it is. In the absence of any answers, let me suggest one, admittedly more speculative than proven but a possibility nonetheless. In 1996, during the midst of Bill Clinton's desperate drive to become president, 16 French club members from the Montoursville high school and five of their chaperones died in the crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of Long Island. Although the phrase has been much abused, there is none better than "cover-up" to describe what followed.
