Nolte: Mitt Romney Is an Idiot

by John Nolte:

As the freshman senator from Utah, Mitt Romney is a long way from the presidency. That has to be especially tough on a two-time presidential loser with You-Know-Who sitting in the Oval Office, a guy who took the brass ring by doing the exact opposite of what you did.

My opinion of Mitt Romney has changed over the years. When he lost the Republican nomination to John McCain in 2008, I thought he was a classy guy with a future. When he lost the general election to Barack Obama in 2012, I thought he was a good man with a glass jaw. When he repeatedly got on his high horse to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidential campaign in 2016, I thought he was an opportunistic sleaze bag gorging on sour grapes and his own monstrously selfish sense of virtue.

But now, after reading his Washington Post jihad against Trump, I finally figured what Mitt Romney really is … an idiot. Read the rest of this article HERE.

Well I guess he couldn’t stand it any longer, so at 8:19 Friday morning, the games began.

Mitt Romney to Announce Senate Run Thursday on Social Media

UPDATE: Mitt Romney announced late Wednesday that he will be delaying his announcement about a Utah U.S. Senate bid due to the deadly shooting at a high school in Florida.

ORIGINAL STORY:

Mitt Romney will launch his Utah Senate campaign Thursday morning with a low key announcement on social media, and will make his first public appearance a day later near Salt Lake City with a keynote address to a gathering of grassroots Republicans.

Romney teased his run for Senate in a Feb. 1 tweet, saying that he would have an announcement to make on Feb. 15. On Wednesday, Romney previewed his campaign again in a short Facebook post. Sources in Utah told the Washington Examiner that Romney that will officially jump into the 2018 Senate race with a digital announcement, rather than holding at a staged rally with supporters.

Romney for a couple of weeks has been scheduled to be in Provo on Friday to headline the Utah County Republican Party Lincoln Day dinner. Like most of the state, Utah County is heavily Republican. The region is also among the most populous and politically influential in statewide campaigns. Continue reading at washingtonexaminer.com.

An Unfond Farewell to Un-Statesman Orrin Hatch

Many say that Hatch is stepping down to pave the way for a run by Mitt Romney. “Hey, I’ll trade you one RINO… for another RINO.”

by Michelle Malkin

The longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history announced this week that he will finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally retire.

That’s seven “finallys” — one for each of the consecutive six-year terms Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, served. He begin his occupancy in 1976, when all phones were dumb, the 5.25-inch floppy disk was cutting-edge, the very first Apple computer went on sale for $666.66, the Concorde was flying high, O.J. Simpson was a hero, Blake Shelton was a newborn, the first MRI was still a blueprint, and I was a gap-toothed first-grader wearing corduroy bell-bottoms crushing on Davy Jones.

This encrusted longevity will be marketed by Hatch, 83, and his supporters as proof of his “statesmanship.” Indeed, The Atlantic magazine described him this week as “an elder-statesman figure in the GOP.” Newsweek likewise reported on the farewell announcement of the “elder statesman.” And Hatch’s own press minions have disseminated press releases quoting other entrenched politicians such as Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., hailing their boss’s “reputation as a statesman.”

But that word doesn’t mean what Beltway barnacles think it means.

Merriam-Webster defines a “statesman” as a “wise, skillful, and respected political leader.” Earning the approbation of other office-clinging politicians doesn’t make you a “respected political leader.” It makes you an echo-chamber chump.

Wise? Skillful? Hatch was a Big Government business-as-usual dealmaker. His wisdom was of the wet-finger-in-the-wind variety, claiming a Reagan conservative mantle during election cycles and then throwing constitutional conservatives under the bus once comfortably back in his well-worn Senate committee seats.

Hatch joined with his old pal Teddy Kennedy to create the $6 billion national service boondoggle and the $8 billion-a-year CHIP health insurance entitlement.

He preached about the “rule of law,” but was an original sponsor of the open-borders DREAM Act illegal alien student bailout, and, despite claiming to oppose it, he voted to fully fund the unconstitutional Obama amnesty during the lame-duck session.

He crusaded for “fiscal conservatism,” yet voted for massive Wall Street bailouts, 16 debt ceiling increases totaling $7.5 trillion, and scores of earmarks totaling hundreds of millions of dollars for porky projects. He ends his four-decade reign as the Senate’s top recipient of lobbyist cash. Continue reading at conservativeinsider.com.

Bannon Decimates Mitt Romney At Rally for Roy Moore

Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon decimates two-time failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney after Romney’s anti Roy More tweet.

 

Bannon spoke at a rally for Alabama Republican senatorial candidate, Judge Roy Moore on Tuesday night. This video covers the portion where he dealt with Mitt Romney. Transcript below:

Let’s talk about another beauty, Willard Mitt Romney. Now I want you to understand something, it was Willard Mitt Romney’s comment yesterday, his tweet or whatever it was, that and the only reason I’m going there Mitt, because he started it. Mitt you had to go there. All the insults you made about the president of the United States, put all that in back of us. You know he interviewed you for Secretary of State, everything’s fine. But no, Judge Moore’s got to run, you got to jump in here.

Honor. What did he say yesterday? Honor and integrity? Honor, that Judge Moore lacked honor and integrity. And that’s why he couldn’t vote for him, right? Couldn’t support him. Couldn’t support him.

Judge Moore is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Judge Moore served his country, in one of the toughest wars we’ve ever had, Vietnam. And he went over there, he went over there, for his country, his state and his family. Mitt, that’s honor and integrity. And by the way Mitt, while we’re on the subject of Vietnam and honor and integrity, you avoided service brother, right? You didn’t serve, Good. Ok Mitt, Mitt. Here’s how it is brother: Now the college deferments, it’s you know, that’s, that’s how it is. You know, we can debate that, but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary when guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity.

And now I’m going to get personal. You had, you ran for commander-in-chief. You had five sons. Not one day of service in Afghanistan and Iraq. We have 7,000 dead, and 52,000 casualties. And where were the Romneys during those wars? You want to talk about honor integrity brother, bring it. Bring it down here to Alabama. You have the guts to get on the stage, you have the guts to get on a stage of a man that served in Vietnam. And you expect us to believe honor integrity?

Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinky finger then your entire family has and his whole DNA. And you know why he’s on Judge Moore. He’s still bitter about Donald Trump. Embrace it Mitt. He is President of the United States, and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, something you so miserably failed at.
