Mitt Romney Swings For The Fences To Make Himself Relevant

Mitt Romney was once the darling of the Republican party. In fact, even the leftist Democrat media thought he was the best thing since sliced bread. To that end he was OK as a candidate as long as it was clear that he’d never win against the chosen Democrat candidate (Hillary). Now that Mitt is the newly-minted Senator from Utah, he has decided that he will be the “elder statesman” schoolteacher for the Senate.

The Trump presidency made a deep descent in December. The departures of Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, the appointment of senior persons of lesser experience, the abandonment of allies who fight beside us, and the president’s thoughtless claim that America has long been a “sucker” in world affairs all defined his presidency down.

Lesser experience? Are you KIDDING ME??!! Mitt? Guess what? You don’t have experience on the world stage with regard to diplomacy. And DUDE…your work regarding the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake is NOT foreign policy in any way, shape, or form.

 Romney says the world hates us for our stance on the international level in terms of foreign policy, yet in the same paragraph he states the following:

A president should unite us and inspire us to follow “our better angels.” A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect. As a nation, we have been blessed with presidents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit. With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.

Look…I’ve definitely wanted our president to dump his Twitter feed. However, I also am clearheaded enough to look beyond his Twitter and ascertain that there is so much this Trump Administration has done for Americans that the positive repercussions will be felt for a long time. North Korea and China are blinking. Trump is working to get us out of the Iran Deal, as well as the stupid climate change Paris Accord.

I’m pretty damned thrilled that North Korea is blinking. Do I think it will last long term? Only time will tell, but North Korea and Kimmie need to be watched very closely.

The EU? The open borders is killing Europe. Just look at what happened over the last few days in Germany and elsewhere.

Before you say…Oh, wait! She’s a Trumpster! No, no I’m not. Do I support our President? Yes, I do. Do I have the constitutional right—First Amendment—to tell our President…along with Chuckie Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, “Spartacus” Booker, screeching Kamala Harris et al…to go POUND SAND if I don’t like their stance? You’re damned right I do! Why?

First AMENDMENT wins every damned time!

There are many times when I haven’t agreed with Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Reagan. As for those prior to Reagan? I wasn’t following any of them closely enough because A. I was between zero and 18 years of age, or B. I hadn’t been born yet.

These statements are telling:

In other words…Mitt has positioned himself as a virtue-signaling Republican who actually identifies as a leftist Democrat.

Not only that, but he’s attempting to position himself as an elder statesman of the Senate.

Keep in mind, this was the same guy who praised Trump six ways to Sunday after a dinner, yet then turned around to call Trump a phony and a fraud.

Romney is definitely parroting the well-known political playbook of “point the finger at everyone else in order to make sure you don’t know I’m stupid” gambit.

Quite frankly, I was never a fan of Mitt Romney. I didn’t think he was viable as a presidential candidate given that I found his issues regarding foreign policy, taxes, and immigration to be a bit weak.

But now that he’s a new senator, he decides to swing for the cheap seats to garner what? Media attention? The media who loves to hate anything Republican? Careful, Senator Romney! Watch where you step!

    Mitt Romney? Meh.

  • President Trump’s speeches are very inclusive; media commentary then lies about them, claims they are full of dog whistles and secretly coded racist messages. These lies take on lives of their own and become the narrative.

    Romney is just another member of the gang trying to destroy President Trump; and deep down this is all about making the world safe for elitists who wish to rule us.

    I prefer semi-honest imbeciles like Occasional-Cortex to snakes like Romney.

  • GWB says:

    Shouldn’t that be “Swings For The Lack of Fences”?

  • windbag says:

    Expect his face on the cover of The National Enquirer next week under the headline “Flake and McCain Love Child.”

  • Skillyboo says:

    Seems he’s making a play to join the democrat party.

    • Scott says:

      Could be.. if he’d been an even halfway viable candidate, he woulda kicked the crap out of the JEF in 2012

    • GWB says:

      Mostly just to join the in-group of technocrats on Capitol Hill. It’s a fairly bi-partisan group of those who would rule over us.

    Mr. Romney was once the darling of the Republican party?
    Great effort has been put fourth to supplant GOPe folk from the swamp.
    Please bear in mind that SOME folks self identify as “Independent” on “official forms”,
    because too many so-called representatives have proven to represent contrary to campaign rhetoric, and “assumptions of “party” association.
    I know of ONE (Conservitive, originalist traditional liberal FROM gum’mint) that hawked up and spit out any faith in Mr. Romney’s public service, beginning with his “efforts” in Massachusetts, and socialist/fascist , so-called Romneycare.

  • Bob McFee says:

    I feel betrayed. Relations between Romney and Trump looked good before the election. Then I find that it is a lie, and that he really is a Trump hater. Still, if he supports the president’s judicial picks, it will still have been worth it. The other option would be to vote for a Democrat. I voted for his rival in the primaries. He’s gonna be counting on us forgetting this outburst. I hope that isn’t true. We’ll see.

    It’s all about money. Mittens has cast his lot with the Globalists and will be accepting their money to spread their message. There’s trillions of dollars at stake between the Globalists and Main Street. If the President is successful in his trade imbalance correction, lots of Globalists will lose their shirt in their overseas investments. They will support with cash anyone willing to help them stop the President. Mittens won’t be the only one. He just got his shot in first and he was paid to do it.

  • DaveP. says:

    Said it before the election and it’s worth repeating now:
    The kind of person who tells me that Mitt Romney, John McCain, and Jeb Bush are Republican or Conservative enough to be President… has no standing to tell me that Donald Trump is not.

    • GWB says:

      And I’ll reiterate two things:
      Republican =/= conservative, and hasn’t for a long time. It’s just that it’s closer to conservative most times – though they’ve been ‘growing’ away from it at an alarming rate.

      Trump is not a conservative. The Republican party has moved far enough to the left that he looks like one, though. And, of course, he does something very few Republicans have done in the last 30 years: fight back.

      John McCain, Romney and !Jeb! certainly are *Republicans*. They just stopped being (or never were) principled ones who were *conservative*.

  • Ken says:

    “Before you say…Oh, wait! She’s a Trumpster! No, no I’m not.”

    Thanks for letting us know! I mean, can you imagine if anyone believed you thought Trump is doing a great job? The most imperative thing for you to do is to signal to everyone your virtue you’re as critical of our president as anyone else. “I support Trump, but…”

    You’re just another lackey in the but brigade. Giving quarter to the enemy, and Romney is the enemy, is stupid.

  • Ben says:

    Mitt is a 2 headed snake and he is one that might become part of the swamp I never liked him from the get go. Trump has dome more for the working people in 2 years with the Dems and the REP that has fought him! I will stand with Mr Trump what he has done before he became president does not make me agents him!! What he does as are president is all that I care about He has done the working people more good that the last 2 president so I am with him 100% God bless this man and his family

    Few of the Presidential Nominees that ran against Trump have been able to overcome the personal insults Trump inflicted.. Exceptions are Rubio and Cruz who look at the issues and support Trump blasted on whether or not they will benefit the country. MCain, The Bush family, Kasich and Romney in particular do not have it in them to overcome it.

    Also I doubt Romney understands what is at stake, he needs to read Killing the Deep State by Corsi and Trump’s Enemies by Bossi and Lewandowski. He is not a supporter of the Constitution by any stretch of the imagination.
