Romney’s Discreditable, Dishonest Vote

Original Article

Posted By: Harlowe, 2/5/2020 11:00:54 PM

What an unexpected sorbet Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah) served up on Wednesday afternoon. (Snip) This odd man, so overbrimming with conscience and full of consultation with the Almighty, has finally revealed his purpose in returning to public life. His incandescent conscience managed to be a self-enriching asset-stripper at Bain and Company. He possessed a near-Olympian talent for flipping in all four directions on practically every public policy question from abortion and healthcare to taxes. But he could not manage his spirit of vengeance. As an authentically scriptural man, Mitt Romney would know that it is the “God of Vengeance, God to whom vengeance belongs.”


Mr. Black’s compositions are always well worth reading and this article is especially compelling as he interlaces facts with studied opinion to emphasize the significance of the facts he presents. As an example, “In cobbling together the righteous fairy tale previously utterable only by chronically dishonest people such as Representatives Adam Schiff ... and Jerry Nadler ... and Speaker Pelosi ...Romney descended from the prophet’s chair in the Mormon Tabernacle to the gutter of American public life.”

Why did Romney vote for more witnesses when he thought there was already enough to convict? His vote was based on jealously and personal animosity, not on the evidence (or lack thereof).

Who refers to himself as "profoundly religious"?! He described himself as a “severe conservative” during the 2012 campaign. Who does that?

Don't worry, Msr. Pierre Delecto consulted with Moroni before making that stupendous lone vote. He will go down in history with the lone House Republican from Louisiana (single-term) who voted in favor of Obamacare.

Good article but Romney didn't meet his wife when they were both LDS missionaries in France. He met her before she converted to LDS and she converted to marry him.

Conrad Black hits the nail on the head. His career as a Republican is over. He is a Judas! He joined the forces of Schiff, Nadler, Pelosi and Schumer. He is worse then the Dem hissing house women at the SOTU. . His jealousy and hate for President Trump has driven him half crazy. Wondering what shady companies those boys of his sit on their boards? Something doesn’t pass the small test. I feel the need to write a letter the Utah GOP.

Black is brilliant, but this was hardly unexpected. Mitt Romney has been predictably dishonest his entire life, and his number was up on this site more than 10 years ago. In reply to severe reassurances about his election to the Senate, I said this: "Those who claim that Mitt Romney is reliable in politics are simply being disingenuous. Romney has always been better at attacking Republicans than defeating Democrats. He has been completely inconsistent in holding to any political principle beyond expedient self-advancement. This time, however, Romney is more than just another politically dishonest opportunist. Mitt has a mission: He wants to reverse the takeover of his daddy´s GOP by President Trump, and he will stop at nothing to achieve this. He will provide crucial aid and comfort to our political enemies by validating progressive narratives designed to achieve impeachment. But, of course, you know all of this already. Mitt Romney is reliable in only one sense. He will always let you down." - Reply Posted by: Sunhan65 9/11/2018

I suspect the Dems are trying to woo him over to their side of the aisle. For now, we need the number his seat provides. Sen. McConnell has said that Romney has been supportive of many issues. Remember that Leader McConnell is filling judgeship vacancies. This is so important. It is rather odd, isn't it, how easily all this religiosity drips from the mouths of some of the most pompous hypocrites and critics of faith.

How can a person be legitimately “profoundly religious” as Mittens Romney says he is and at the same time hold “profound hate” for another human being as Romney obviously does when it comes to President Trump? From now on, chances are great that Romney is going to be out in the cold in DC as far as the vast majority of Republicans are concerned.

Mitt has hated and envied the President for a long time. This was his "gotcha" moment. Hardly a religious person. How many people refused to vote for a Mormon with special drawers ? How many remember he was MittCare and an inspiration for Zippy Care while in MA? He only moved to Utah for the Mormon vote. Look at their payback for electing him. They should recall him. He is what my mother called "nice nasty"

The Bible passages quoted by Mr. Black are meaningless to Mittens. He follows the Book of Mormon and I have no knowledge if it has comparable teachings. All LDS folks I've met in my life were good people; friendly, quick to help and highly professional in their work. It appears that Romney is to LDS as Pelosi is to Catholicism; both wrapping their mendacity in false piety. I sure wish I knew Romney so I could shun him. I doubt the Post Office will allow us to send him daggers. Maybe a harness for a jackass so Pelosi can be comfortable when she rides him. I hope he enjoys his exile.

#28, that article is just nonsense, a political hatchet job against a Republican. Their theories fit Obama and BillyJeff far more closely than Romney. But, Romney is a backstabbing piece of garbage, pretending to be high minded. The good news is that he has permanently wrecked his political career with this one. He is DONE as a Republican, maybe the Dems will take him, but probably not.

Unfortunately # 15 is right. We need every Senate "R" we can muster for the all-important judicial confirmations. Romney is a skunk, but he is our skunk for at least the next five years. Even if constitutional, sporadic recall efforts won't amount to anything. Politics is the art of the possible. Hip hip, hooray.

#32, Mitch pretty much said this yesterday. Something like "My job is to pass bills through the Senate, and I have to keep as many votes as I can to get that accomplished." He went on to say something roughly like ' it might be temporarily satisfying to point fingers and say things, but in the end that doesn't help me pass bills' . I will say bad things about Romney, but for the next 5 years, we have to get his vote, and Mitch knows that yelling at Romney now, however satisfying now, won't help get judges confirmed and bills passed. Hard political truths are sometimes really a PITA. I learned this in the 90s when I worked with our state legislature to pass many gun rights bills, all which still stand in what is now one of THE most gun owner friendly states in the union, partially some of my doing. But the process is pretty painful at times. I did have the very interesting opportunity to work closely several times with a Democrat legislator, and we laughed and worked well together, even though each of us knew that concealed carry was the ONLY place where we agreed. We never let that get in the way. Politics is a very weird game to play, but played well, it can make for good laws. I still despise Romney.

Immigration experts and House Republicans are balking at the New Way Forward Act, a Democratic bill that is being described as an embrace of “open borders” and likely to be the most “radical” legislation ever introduced in history. Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, along with several other progressive House members, introduced the New Way Forward Act in December 2019, to seemingly little fanfare. The bill, among many things, calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, would make it more difficult to deport convicted criminal aliens, empower immigration judges to nullify deportation orders, and also calls for the return of previously deported illegal aliens.

I see that various pundits are competing to write the political epitaph for Joe ‘son-of-a-bitch‘ Biden. That’s entirely understandable. It’s been clear for some time that Biden is on the threshold of senility, and it is only my charitable disposition that prevents me from speculating about which side of the threshold he occupies. And then there was the desolation wrought by the Democrats’ impeachment entertainment. From the start, it was clear that the chief casualty of that amateur theatrics was going to be Joe Biden and his sniff, sniff, sniffing son Hunter. Everyone who is not Bill Kristol understood that the bullet of that purely partisan hit job would miss President Trump.

Joe Biden brought his “No Malarkey” tour to a New Hampshire debate stage on Friday night. But in promising to tell the truth, he accidentally exposed his own doleful (or I should say, Bob Dole-ful) prospects in Tuesday’s opening-gun primary. In his first words of the debate—the moment when candidates are usually the most scripted—Biden confessed, “I took a hit in Iowa and I’ll probably take a hit here.” It was a novel campaign strategy; few candidates ever say, “Vote for me because I’m going to lose here.” If his comments were a brief misstep in an otherwise smooth debate, it would have been one thing.

The Democrats and Democrat-Socialists held a debate last night in New Hampshire following their disastrous caucus in the state of Iowa. Following the debate Chris Matthews went off on the hardcore Socialist wing of the party. (Photo) Chris Matthews: The issue of this campaign is that word socialism. Some people like it. Younger people like it. Those of us like me, who grew up in a cold war and saw some aspects of it while visiting places like Vietnam, like I have, and seeing countries like Cuba, being there. I’m seeing what socialism’s like. I don’t like it. OK? It’s not only not free. It doesn’t freakin’ work!

At a time when Confederate monuments are being pulled down, it would make sense to think that the military geniuses who defeated the real live Confederates might in conversity be honored, right? Not in an age of idiocy. So, the 200th birthday of General William T. Sherman, destroyer of Atlanta and much of the South across the Civil War, the master strategist who, alongside U.S. Grant. led the Union forces to victory, goes virtually unnoted. It shows that the Confederate statue pulldown isn't really about winners or losers.
