Snit Romney

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 10/21/2019 5:00:02 AM

I want my vote back, Mitt. Give me back my vote. In 2012, I voted for this insufferable establishment icon, this inept goof who the Democrats wish every Republican would emulate. Some nights, I wake up sweating and screaming when I relive it in my nightmares. I should have taken my ballot, lit it on fire and flushed it down the Schiffhole. But Romney does serve a purpose, as hard as that is to see through his pathetic antics. His perpetual groveling for approval – including, hilariously, from Donald Trump himself who just broke him right in front of our eyes over the Secretary of State gig – is so shameful

Wonderful essay, and so are the ones featured in the sidebar. FTA: “That’s [secure borders] what we’re interested in, not refereeing between tribes on the other side of the globe.” And from the Kevin McCullough essay available at the above referenced sidebar: “He [Mick Mulvaney] also irritated them to no end in blatantly explaining that the aid America gives to any group of people that are not American will be on a basis that is assessed on a primary consideration of how they cooperate with the interests of America!

All I can say, is don’t get me started on Romney. He is, without a doubt, the most vile, backstabbing, sanctimonious political phony to come down the pike since John McCain and that says a lot. Scratch the surface of a guy like this and I guarantee you will find a puffed and fluffed reprobate. He is a liar, untrustworthy and the poster boy for everything that is wrong with the ruling political class.

2012 - think of the choices. Ugh - BO or the creep. I don't want my vote back because I did NOT vote for either of them. BO for the obvious reasons. Creepy because he is too stupid to be president. He believes in Joseph Smith and fairy tale he wove 150 years ago that has consumed millions of well meaning people and totally deceived them. Why? So Joe could have more than one sex partner. Imagine - a whole religion based on sex.

In 2012, Barack Obama was ripe for the picking after a terrible four years, but somehow we nominated a turkey named Mitt Romney. All he had to do was show some spine, and show he was different from the Democrats. He couldn't even do that. Candy COWLEY beat him up in public and stole his lunch. Romney also showed he was very little different from the Democrats so why vote for him. What is the voter to do when there are no real choices?

Fine article. The fake Mitt, and we came to find out also about the fake liar Paul Ryan. Like peas and carrots. I have voted for Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush I, Dole, Bush II, McCain, Romney, and Trump. What a waste of my life in voting for these Republicans. I got two right, Reagan and Trump. Even though Bush II was great friends with my great buddy from Nam, Giff Foley. Foley and I served in the same Marine squad together.

Romney didn't want to win the big prize, he just wanted to run and make money from the campaign. Then there is the fact he foisted the sleaziest little creep who ever served as Speaker, Paul Ryan. I think that with the news today of his twitter handle Pierre Delecto, he exposed an even nastier part of his prersona, and it is probably every bit as creepy and pervy as we suspect. Wet finger in the wind Romney has no core principles to guide him, and this is the end result. A walking and oozing sore on our Congress.

Voted for him when he ran because the alternative was just too awful - later proven to be so. Romney tippy-toed around during his 'too timid, too tame' presidential bid. If only he'd been as tough on his Dem opponent as he is on Trump. Mitt is extremely unhappy because Trump triumphed, and he didn't. He wants to replace Trump - any way necessary. Sorry Mitt - you're done!

Romney is so full of himself that he thought that he had a divine right to be Secretary of State. When President Trump did not choose him, he became a vindictive "Never Trumper." Somebody this temperamental would have been a bad choice for any position of responsibility.

I actually grieved when Romney lost. I thought we needed a president who could focus on business, unlike Obama. Had Romney campaigned against Obama as strongly as he has against a sitting president of his own party, he might have won. I loathe Romney now and rejoice in his flailing and whining. The real Mitt Romney stood up and revealed his true identity. McCain II. I am elated that we finally got a business-oriented president who loves this country enough to fight for it and get his hands dirty. Thank you, President Donald J. Trump!

I am so GLAD that Schlichter wrote this and that it is a Must Read today. We should be copying it off an mailing it to Mitt by the thousands. Rubbing his nose in it. He is the worst kind of loser. Why did some here like him? Well, because he seemed like a gentleman. Genteel. Their idea of how the rich conduct themselves. (If they only knew.) Schlichter exposes him as being as plastic as his hairdo. And in the process exposes the Mitt fans who should have known better after 2012… the ones who kind of still plug for him in their hearts… Feh.

Mike Huckabee on Romney: “The man’s 72 years old,” Huckabee emphasized. “Having fake Twitter accounts on social media, that’s the work of kids, cowards, couch potatoes and perverts like Carlos Danger. What on Earth does a United States senator do calling himself Pierre Dilecto? If he’s got something to say, man up and say it.” “Let us all realize that this guy is not a team player,” he continued. “He’s still bitter because Donald Trump got elected and he didn’t. He needs to get over it.” Classic

Pierre Delecto was pulled from behind the curtain late last night on Twitter – too late for Kurt to be aware of this revelation of Mittens' shame when he filed this piece. I can hardly wait for the inevitable sequel, now that this arrow has been added to Kurt's quiver. Jack Posiebic was posting "scrolls" of the postings of Pierre Delecto (some of them disturbing) on his own Twitter timeline last night, and I believe they can still be seen there if you scroll down far enough now. This is relevant because, per Posobiec, Pierre Delecto has done multiple tweets attacking none other than Kurt S, truly, as Posobiec notes, a "badge of the highest honor" in the roll call of Kurt's achievements. I fully expect Kurt to place Pierre's lofty distaste front and center in his book promotions. The damage Candy Crowley laid on Mittens will be nothing compared to the mega-damage Kurt will lay on Pierre. Count on it.

Politics involves binary choices. If my choice is Hussein or Mittens I'll go with Mittens every time. Mittens had his feeling hurt when PT didn't pick him for a cabinet post and is getting even by acting petty. Juvenile but maturity is not found with many politicians today.

The last four years of political punditry and analysis have been objectively wretched. Regardless of your feelings about the present political moment, precisely no one can defend the quality of the analysis that dominates the airwaves and pages of our corporate media. They told us throughout the 2016 campaign that the notion of Donald Trump winning the presidency was a joke. The mockery increased as election day drew near. From the Washington Post: “Donald Trump’s chances of winning are approaching zero.” At 10:20 P.M. on election night, The New York Times assured us that “Hillary Clinton has an 85% chance of winning.” They gave Hillary a 95 percent chance of winning Michigan,

SINGLE-PAYER HEALTH care can work. Government-run systems operate in other industrialized countries and often achieve comparable or better overall results, for less money, than the health-care patchwork in the United States. So why aren’t Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) proposing something that resembles those systems? The two presidential candidates promise far more generous benefits than other countries offer. They pretend that the United States wouldn’t have to make any of the trade-offs other nations have had to make. They promise fantastically generous benefits, no premiums, co-payments or other cost-sharing, and a miraculously low price tag. It’s fiction.

A growing number of Republican lawmakers are urging Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin, a fellow Republican, to either provide evidence of the voting “irregularities” he has alleged or concede Tuesday’s election to Gov.-elect Andy Beshear, who defeated him by 5,189 votes. “The best thing to do, the right thing to do, is for Governor Bevin to concede the election today so we can move on,” said Rep. Jason Nemes, R-Louisville. Senate President Robert Stivers, R-Manchester, first raised the possibility of the tight election being decided by the Republican-led legislature Tuesday night when he explained the process that would occur if Bevin decided to challenge the results of the race.
The Difference Between Schiff and Shinola 8 replies

The moment House Speaker Nancy Pelosi chose Adam Schiff to be the point man for the House “impeachment inquiry,” the effort to create a credible case against President Trump was doomed. The overarching case the Democrats have made against Trump is that he is a deeply dishonest man and this fundamental flaw in his personality has inevitably manifested itself in a variety of impeachable offenses. This was the primary theme of the Russia collusion hoax, and it is the basic narrative underlying the Ukraine scandal. Consequently, the decision to put a man of Schiff’s well-documented mendacity in charge of the inquiry was a colossal blunder. Before Russiagate collapsed,

The horrific murders in northern Mexico this week by drug-cartel gunmen are a stark reminder that the United States and our southern neighbor still face significant security challenges. Yet the violence overshadows a policy success story on border security: the Trump administration’s effort to curb the flow of would-be migrants at the border, preventing our border-security infrastructure from being totally overwhelmed and cutting down on opportunities for human rights abuses of migrants and human trafficking by criminal gangs. The reason you don’t see breathless hyperbole about “children in cages” dominating news cycles anymore is because

Voters in Tucson, Arizona had to make a decision yesterday about Prop 205. The measure would have designated their municipality as the only sanctuary city in the state, placing significant restrictions on police in terms of when they can check on the immigration status of suspects. Supporters of the measure also said it would make the city a more “welcoming” place to (presumably illegal) immigrants. Tucson’s progressives that had pushed for the referendum described it as something that would “send a strong message to Donald Trump.”

"I always stop there when I talk about this out in the world because I want to remind white folks that y'all were running from us. This family, with all the values you read about: You ran from us.
