Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Thursday expressed support for removing the names of Confederate figures from at least some U.S. military bases. Speaking to reporters on Capitol Hill, Romney said he would support a measure to rename military bases honoring confederate leaders “in some cases.” When asked about President Trump’s blanket opposition to renaming bases, he replied: that’s “not where I’d be.”

There are 99 other members of the Senate. Why on earth does anyone think we care what the junior senator from Utah thinks or says?

What is wrong with this man? Does he really want the Democrats to be in charge--the same ones who trashed him when he was running for President?

So predictable. He has no convictions other than to be the opposite of Trump and to get media coverage for it.

I had a change of heart on this issue last night. I am now all in favor or renaming and tearing down monuments to DEMOCRAT confederates. Not because they were confederates but because the were democrats. In fact we should make sure that everyone is aware that they were DEMOCRATS.

Someone PLEASE ASK Mitt Romney this question, "Sen. Romney, were past leaders of the Mormon church wrong to exempt blacks from membership in the church? Bonus question: What do you think about Brigham Young's comments about blacks being cursed by God?" http://www.utlm.org/onlineresources/sermons_talks_interviews/brigham1852feb5_priesthoodandblacks.htm

Romney believes that if he had the power to do this that if he picked and chose some of these bases to be renamed that the anarchists would say "Gee, thanks George, you have wisely chosen the bases that need to be renamed and wisely chosen to leave the bases so named because we were wrong on those". George actually believes the anarchists would respect his wisdom and authority--what a first class idiot.

Sorry, hit send too soon... It's pretty clear that Mitt the mutt is running interference for the Mormon church as they would be very vulnerable to destruction in Salt Lake City especially. Street gangs have moved in there in large numbers and are roaming all over the city. Not only that but every building they own could become a target just as easily as their central "temple" in SLC.

Pierre Delecto can call the ''bases'' whatever name he want to call them since his opinion doesn't matter even a little bit. He could be factual, if he so chose, and call them by their original designation as Forts. Facts matter little to RINOs or Democrats. Before and during WWII the nearest fort to my home was called a ''camp.'' Yeah Rah for the 101st!

Good questions. The press gives Romney all the coverage he needs because he is a Republican who attacks our President. In return, Romney gives them what they want: false "bipartisan" labels on the Left's agenda items and "prominent Republican" validation of their dishonest narratives. He feeds them the pull quotes they need to pursue the destruction of our President. He is precisely the kind of Republican the Left needs. Romney is not without convictions. In a very limited sense, for the first time in his life, Mitt has a mission: Romney returned to public life to destroy Trump and restore the GOP establishment's control of the Republican Party. His personal agenda was clear in everything he said before, and it's been proven in everything he has done since. Romney doesn't care if the Democrats are in charge, and he never did. He just wants his daddy's Republican Party back. Those of us who've understood Romney for decades warned this would happen, and now it has. What's wrong with Romney would take the rest of this thread to list, and I invite you to try. What's wrong with us is that enough people believe any "R" in a column is worth risking Republicans like Romney.

Mitt know the only way he can make the news anymore is to say he'd do the opposite of what Trump does. His only relevancy is as a tool for the resistance. Of course, we'll never know what he'd do, because he lost and gave us eight years of Barack Obama. Any way you cut it, he's dead weight.

A new nickname for Romney OP? Weasel Boy. hmmm, I like it. Romney needs to remember the old saying about road kill. You find it in the middle of the road because it just cannot make its mind up about which side to choose. Romney is one of the worst moderates in the congress we have. Having it both ways makes him vulnerable. At least McCain chose a side, even though it was usually wrong.

Notice that none of the folks seeking to rename military bases that were, perhaps, named after Generals who served in both the US Army and in the CSA ranks, have bothered to notice that we have a lot of places that are named after a NAZI, and not just a fake Nazi, but the real deal. His name was Wernher von Braun. There's a whole complex of office buildings leased by the gub'mnt itself named after him. There's the Von Braun Complex is an office building and conference facility supporting the Missile Defense Agency and US Army Space and Missile Defense, and the Von Braun Center (VBC), known as the Von Braun Civic Center (VBCC) No doubt there are others! Many of the products of his work are on display in museums, including those he produced for Germany, e.g. V2 Rocket at the Smithsonian itself. Not a one of the fascist pigs at either AntiFA or BLM have said a word about these places.

1) I don't know who has the authority to change the names. But if Congress wants them changed then pass a law changing them. 2) Romney's answer will not satisfy anyone. Some will want every name changed, others none. And how will those who agree to only some changes agree about which ones? 3) It wouldn't end with renaming the bases. Next will come demands to burn some books and art. And rename cities and counties and states. And the word "America" came from white guys in Europe, it will have to go.

At first, I tried to find a reason to sympathize with whatever predicament the FBI Agents found themselves that caused them to kneel down. There is conflicting reporting about whether the Agents kneeled in order to minimize the potential for confrontation with a much larger group of protesters who were calling for them to do so, or whether the Agents were, in fact, demonstrating sympathy for the views being expressed by the protesters.

Conservative syndicated columnist Jonah Goldberg slammed Kayleigh McEnany for her role as White House press secretary, calling her “grotesque” on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday.” After playing a clip of McEnany sparring with reporters, host Chris Wallace said, “Unmasking is pretty routine. It’s an effort by people in an administration to find out who a masked person is. It happens in the Trump White House. It happened I think 16,000 times the year before last. What’s a crime is leaking it, but unmasking isn’t. In addition to which, I have to say that if Kayleigh McEnany had told Sam Donaldson and me what questions we should ask, that would not have gone well.”

A forthcoming Australian scientific study concludes that the coronavirus causing the global pandemic contains unique properties suggesting it was manipulated in a Chinese laboratory and was not the result of a natural occurrence. Five scientists who conducted the study discovered an unusual ability of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, as the pathogen behind COVID-19 is called, to easily infect humans. The scientists said there is no sign so far that the virus can be found in other animals, including bats or the exotic wildlife sold for fresh meat at a market in the Chinese city of Wuhan....

Despite a sophisticated alert system and a decade of air defense drills, the arrival just after midnight of a wave of B-29 bombers plunged Toyama into chaos.

Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx pushed a completely fraudulent Imperial College study to lockdown and destroy the greatest economy in US history.

Rice, who is reported to be among shrinking list of Biden vice presidential contenders, has the advantage of a longstanding close relationship with Biden, unlike any of the other names on the list. But Biden's want for “familiarity and comfort” are luxuries the nation doesn’t have time for in this singular time of crisis, Post columnist Dana Milbank writes.
