Senator Mitt Romney has slammed Donald Trump for saying that he would accept dirt on a political opponent from a foreign government, saying the president’s remarks are “simply unthinkable.” Mr Romney, who was the 2012 Republican nominee for president before winning his Senate seat last year, said during an impromptu interview with reporters that he would contact the FBI immediately if a foreign government approached him in that way.

After watching Mitt go all scorched earth on his fellow Republicans, I have no doubt he would use any and all dirt he was given regardless of source and regardless of veracity.

The president is the executive branch. There is only one boss and that is the president. All other employees are inferior to the president. If The Trump comes across some foreign information, he can decide for himself if he wishes to get the FBI involved. He is not obligated to provide the FBI with anything. The FBI works for the president, not the other way around. Speaking to George Steph was a brilliant move by Trump. When the indictments are handed down, the JunkMedia will conveniently steer clear of Comey's FBI taking forged information from a foreign agent.

President Trump was asked a hypothetical question by a known Democrat political operative connected to the Clintons, and gave in his hypothetical imprecise answer by way of his Queens vernacular, that is now being misrepresented by the Democrat political operative, other liberal media operatives, and much of the Democrat Congress.

I am scratching my head on this one. Didn't we just spend 30 million dollars looking into political dirt on Pres. Trump just because his political opponent Hillary Clinton paid to have political dirt spread on him! She not only accepted it; she paid for it. Why hasn't Mitt et al slammed her for what she did! Huh? Huh?

Should I suppose he also denigrates Hillary for the Russian situation? Or is he a hypocrite and a liar? Oh, yes... politician... Have you noticed, people who seek public office are remarkably similar in psychological profile to serial killers? They tend to lack empathy/sympathy for their prey (voters), they are good at manipulating people, and love to be in control. They may be sadistic with certain 'trigger' types. Why do we elect these degenerates, again?

Mitt Romney is a fatuous hypocrite. His campaign for the Republican Party nomination in 2012 was the dirtiest I've ever seen. He laughed openly with liberal reporters about using opposition research to destroy GOP rivals he couldn't defeat on principle. The accusations against Newt Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum were pervasive and dishonest. One commentator on this site referred to it as "the Great Romney Tμrd-hurling Machine." It was a primary campaign devoid of principle and purpose. Then his minions went after Santorum's wife over abortion. Karen Santorum almost lost her own life trying to save their baby in a pregnancy that was killing her. Doctors finally had to refuse her pleas because their ethics wouldn't allow them to kill one patient to save another. Attacking a man and his wife over an issue so personal to them speaks to a lack of character in Romney that is truly appalling. Removing Mitt Romney from public life should be considered an act of basic political hygiene.

If President Trump could not hypothetically “listen” to what world leaders in the future want to tell him about alleged leftist and liberal Democrat corrupt activities, how would Trump be able to inform the FBI about those conversations, so that legitimate and non-political FBI criminal investigations could be commenced and the perpetrators prosecuted if lawfully appropriate? Common sense will tell you that hiding the allegations of high level Democrat corruption from the FBI would not be personally or politically beneficial to Trump.

From the craphead who got his butt kicked by puny obama who was losing the night of the election. Remember when obama was almost in tears at some rally no one attended on election night? They had to manufacture crowds at his events, and he knew he was going to lose, then poof! a win for the mulatto light-bringer. And, of course, baby Romney said nothing at all about the widespread cheating. He shut his mouth and went home dutifully, just like John McCain. Traitor. We haven't forgotten, you worthless, spineless loser. You need and we need you to shut up now. Pretend we're democrats asking you to shut up.

If hypocrisy equals people, Democrats in Washington are China. The latest example of such bold duplicity by the Democratic Party is the secret "A-list" of potential Supreme Court (SCOTUS) judges Democrats refuse to reveal while they turn blue on Capitol Hill screaming for more transparency from the Trump administration. Democrat leaders and activists working for Alliance for Justice are keeping their SCOTUS list under lock and key. Why? What do Democrats want to hide? Perhaps it's the fact that this list of potential justices for SCOTUS contains the names of the most liberal, activist judges in the land?

Much as with the border invasion, Senate GOP leaders Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn don’t believe our unprecedented spending is a problem. They only perk up when the Trump administration tries to combat either of those problems. Then, they say they care about the problem but just oppose the administration’s solution, of course, without offering their own. In just the first eight months of this fiscal year, our government has spent $3 trillion. That is $255 billion more than at this time last year and nearly half a trillion more than during the first eight months of FY 2016.

In this great country, it's not a crime to be a Christian — at least not yet. But the Left is working on it. Free expression of religion is not just shunned. It is ridiculed and mocked. Anti-Christian bigotry is the only form of acceptable intolerance remaining in this country — to be encouraged and incited by our "tolerant" liberal friends in academia, the media, and entertainment. Christian principles were foundational to the American Republic. Yet what matters to the Left is silencing the Christian influence of this nation.

It so happens that the issue that launched the recent fracas on the American Right is in my own dispiriting beat: the effects of gender-identity policies on children. Disputes about “strategy” aside, conservatives can all agree that a culture that permits the sexualization and sterilization of children’s bodies is a rotten one. As I’ve written before, there are plenty of people on the left who think so too. Take the case of “Desmond is Amazing,” the toxic brand created for eleven-year-old Desmond Napoles: a “drag kid,” a fashion model, and a global LGBT icon.

Progressive Liberals have their own Sunday School. Of course, given that they tout a Trojan Horse religion, they get away with not calling it what it is.
