Traitorous NeverTrump Mercenary and Credibly Accused Gay Hair-Rapist Mitt Romney: I Vote to Convict
Updated: The NeverTrumpers Rush to White Knight for Mittens!

On Fox now.

But apparently he's already leaked his vote to his liberal media allies: He's voting to convict.

This is what he already told very liberal very partisan liberal hack McKay Coppins:

"This has been the most difficult decision I have ever had to make in my life," he told me yesterday afternoon in his Senate office. Roughly 24 hours later, Romney would deliver a speech announcing that he was voting to convict President Donald Trump on the first article of impeachment--abuse of power. For weeks, the senator from Utah had sat silently in the impeachment trial alongside his 99 colleagues, reviewing the evidence at night and praying for guidance. The gravity of the moment weighed on him, as did the pressure from members of his own party to acquit their leader. As his conscience tugged at him, he said, the exercise took on a spiritual dimension.

...

In the end, the evidence was inescapable. "The president did in fact pressure a foreign government to corrupt our election process," Romney said. "And really, corrupting an election process in a democratic republic is about as abusive and egregious an act against the Constitution--and one's oath--that I can imagine. It's what autocrats do."

...

He also knows his vote will likely make him a pariah on the right. Already, he says, he's experienced firsthand the ire of the base. At an airport recently, a stranger yelled at him, "You ought to be ashamed!" During a trip to Florida with his wife this past weekend, someone shouted "Traitor!" from a car window.

Oh you poor dear. You should compare notes with Anita Sarkesian.

In his Senate speech, he's whining about "abusive texts and emails."

I imagine he is plotting a third-party bid, or will signal that he'll run as a Vice Presidential running mate with a Democrat.

Update: Shut up, Wesley.

You know, people will say "Ben Shapiro is pro-Trump now" or "Erick Erickson is pro-Trump now."

Or, "Rich Lowry is softening on Trump."

Rich Lowry, the guy who seized on the opportunity to slander kids for wearing MAGA hats?

Oh yeah, he's totally "coming around on Trump."

No, they're still NeverTrump. They will always be NeverTrump.

What they're doing is career protection. The NeverTrump audience is only 10% (or less) of the Republican audience, so anyone who hopes to have a career based on popular engagement -- as opposed to just having a billionaire patron and audience of one, as many of the AEI grifters do -- has to at least pretend they're "open" to the believes of the 90% of the party they not-so-secretly despise.

They're forever doing this dance where one week they'll say they've decided, after long thinking and many prayers, to support Trump, etc., etc., and the next week they're suggesting he should be impeached.

Both sides, y'all!

I wouldn't mind this as much except it's clearly dishonest, mercenary behavior. These aren't their genuine thoughts -- their genuine thoughts remain virulently NeverTrump.

They are just trying to Con the Rubes as usual by occasionally saying "Trump is preferable to a Democrat" while all the rest of the time they're babbling out Democrat talking points.

People don't believe me. They think these people -- who have been guilty of self-serving mercenary careerism all their miserable social-climbing media suck-up lives -- are "straight shooters."

That these ridiculous egotists are really re-evaluating their past righteous Twitter Convictions.

When have they ever done that before?

But, fine. Trust their claims. Pretend they don't have a blindingly obvious reason to adjust some of their rhetoric to pay their rent.

But still: My theory explains their behavior. Yours doesn't.

Discuss.

GREAT Question: If Mitt is so honest that his integrity is beyond any dispute --

Do NeverTrumpers believe he was more pro-abortion than Ted Kennedy when he ran as a pro-abortion Republican in Massachusetts?

If he lied then, why not now?

And further: Who says he's telling the truth now?

Which Boomer Rubes are stupid enough to believe that Mitt Romney never lies for political advantage?

So, Romney keeps his seat, but he's finished for good as a voice anyone listens to. And he's a one term Senator who won't run for re-election.

Posted by: Tom Servo at February 05, 2020 02:10 PM (Kpl3J)

I realized that we simply need a conservative party -- and if it's not the Republican party I wouldn't be voting for them.

So when they nominated McCain and Romney -- I refused to vote for either.

And given the ensuing years I am extremely happy that I did not. They would both have dragged the party even further to the left.

235 AP: The tarmac at Salt Lake International Airport was packed with Utahns welcoming home their senator, Mitt Romney.

Men and women wept as the senator, also weeping, descended the steps to a red carpet as strains of "Wind Beneath My Wings" played over loudspeakers. Women locked arms, singing "did you ever know that you're my he-ro..."

A cage door opened, and hundreds of white doves emerged, rising into the blue Utah sky.
It was, one Romney supporter said, "the perfect way to welcome our guy home."

255 With respect to this vote, I don't particularly care how Romney votes. His reputation is already baked into the cake. He's a spineless weasel. This vote today by him changes no outcome.

But what it does signal, is that Romney will not vote for Trump's RGB replacement should the time come. And that does affect outcomes.

So it means, the GOP must increase their Senator caucus.

Romney is a spiteful, jealous man (I use man loosely).

And the fact that there was a bi-partisan effort to not advance the articles lost to mists of time.

Leak it to the Washington Post via Buzzfeed.

Slowly, he raised his face to the sky, his features tightened with the strain of the last three months. A beam of sunlight caught the crest of his nose, depicting the Rushmore-worthy visage of a man unbowed, a hero, a citizen of conviction who bucked cynicism and placed his sacred political honor on the scale. Suffused in the warmth of the moment, he closed his eyes, the stain of recent sorrow streaked on the sun-tanned cheeks.

567 Romney positions himself for 2024 White House bid with Trump impeachment criticism
https://t.co/82me1j3Ack

Mitt Romney is stoking suspicions that he is eyeing a third White House bid in 2024 after the Utah Republican broke with his party and insisted on witnesses at President Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate.

Along with centrist Susan Collins of Maine, Romney was one of just two Senate Republicans to join the Democrats in a failed vote to subpoena fresh testimony. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee might yet acquit Trump on two articles alleging abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, but consistent criticism of Trump throughout impeachment, a GOP rarity, capped by support for witnesses has some Republicans convinced Romney is jockeying to reclaim the party.

"Mitt Romney is a bitter, jealous man who looks at President Trump and wishes he could be him. This is about Romney's ego, nothing else," said Jason Miller, a Republican strategist who advised Trump during the 2016 campaign and co-hosts a podcast with Steve Bannon, the president's former White House counselor.

A second Republican strategist neither affiliated with nor opposed to Trump agreed that Romney's maneuvering during the four-month impeachment process was calculated. This veteran operative predicted the senator would be active after the November elections, trying to restore the internationalist, "Chamber of Commerce" Republicanism that dominated the GOP before the elevation of Trump, a populist and a nationalist.

"He is cynically betting on an electoral disaster in 2020," this Republican said, requesting anonymity in order to speak candidly and preserve relationships with key establishment figures. "I think he believes he will be the only guy who will look like he was in the right on the road to hell."

Fine, that's a fair point, but delivering it in tweets does not work well for complex and extended arguments. And his phrasing "legitimate" does not work well.

Romney has a legitimate voice in the same way anyone in a free country does, but he's made several absurd, false and possibly even lying points in his statement, which ware not legitimate in any way.

3) Trump was investigated during the election by the FBI, and the results of the investigation were continually leaked to the press, along with numerous distortions and assorted bullshit. After election the investigations and leaks continued, including those from Schiff. Yet NONE of the people doing this are being held accountable to remotely the SAME degree as Trump.

No he doesn't give a damn about Utah and he doesn't give a damn about the senate. This is all just for that phony nice ego maniacal shit stain to have on his resume for 2024.

I think we need to go back to Senators being selected by the states. However, they need to only serve at the will of the state. In other words, a state can replace their senator at any time.

I don't knjow what the legislature is like in your state, but I cannot comprehend how anyone would think them more honorable, educated, informed, or sane than the voters at large. The whole "everything would be better if the Senate was elected by elected officials" thing is ridiculous. Its like the gold standard argument. All you're doing is removing the same effect by one step.

People vote for those who reflect their culture and ideals, how does anyone think it would be different if those people then voted for Senators??
Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at February 05, 2020 02:45 PM (KZzsI)

=========

1) It was just a question without an answer.

2) There's no implication that state legislature's are "better" in any way.

But, if the people of Utah are really against the impeachment of Trump, and their state legislature had an indirect say in it, the people would be telling the state legislature what the senator should do, and that could include a recall.

let them go down alive to the realm of the dead,
for evil finds lodging among them.

The Utah Policy survey showed that for the first time since his election, a majority of Utah voters approve of Trump's job performance, echoing his surge in national surveys.

According to the poll analysis, "The survey, conducted for UtahPolicy.com and 2 News by Y2 Analytics shows 52% of likely voters approve of President Trump, while 45% disapprove, giving the president a net-positive approval rating of +7."

The same outfit in October found Romney's job approval underwater, at 46%-51%.

756 It's not in the Constitution and the courts love them some Constitution when it empowers the State.

The Constitution plainly states in no uncertain terms that anything not overtly stated in it is exclusively the power of the people. Arguing that something isn't in the constitution is an express argument for the voters being able to do it instead.

The courts DON'T love them some Constitution when it empowers the People.

The media will call him a maverick and true statesman until he runs against a Dem. As long as he never opposes another Dem, he will be popular with the media. That is what tripped up McCain. They loved him until he took on Obama. What he did later was too gross to mention in this comparison.

Neither is Erick Erickson.

In fact, if we have to do this stupid game, I will argue that I am a person of higher moral character than either of them because I have principles that remain steadfast. Yes, I may be profane, but I am not tossed hither and yon by the winds of change. If and when my principles change, it is because I have considered whether I was wrong initially or if circumstances have proven that said principles do not, in reality, support that which I seek to achieve.

And I say this knowing full well Erickson's personal and family health struggles.

I'm a better person than either of them.

And no. This is not being true to his oath. This impeachment was run without due process in the House and makes no reference to a crime (the latter point is arguable, but I think Dershowitz made a good case). This was not constitutional. This was a railroading without due process, without rights, without transparency, without justice. Voting in favor of this railroading is a violation of his oath to defend the constitution - not an upholding of it.

The thing that strikes me over and over is this: Congress critters are elected by the people - stop laughing! - and as such they have forgotten that. And don't care. They get into that "family" (as in the mafia term) and then go along their way to get rich and stay in power forever.

The last two SOTU addresses showed more and more of how the Dims, and the GOPe don't care about the people who voted for them. They don't care about the nation's well-being. They damn sure don't care about helping the President or this country get better and stronger. They have proved that they are the enemy within. And a lot of Congress is truly an enemy within.

828 when Tucker went after him on Truck Drivers losing their jobs with Driverless Trucks, Little Ben didn't care.

I didn't agree with Tucker on that, either though. He was doing a big government right winger act: we have to have government step in and save these jobs! That's not how small government or free markets work.

835 Sorry ace, the second half of your post is a ridiculous conspiracy theory. Ben Shapiro and Erick Erickson like and dislike things about Trump. That isn't abnormal, it's why Trump's approval is so low considering the economy. They aren't trying to fool the rubes by pretending to like some of the things Trump does. I think some of their takes are superficial, ill-informed, and just plain wrong, and I agree with most of your takes and for the most part don't really like listening to them (Shapiro can be ok, Erickson is grating to me) but they aren't lying about what they believe.

Most of these people, esp. the NeverTrumpers, should be ignored by anyone of consequence (now, we're not really of consequence, so we can do what we want.)

This is because they are mostly seeking attention; especially with regards to this impeachment its a publicity stunt (AOC foolishly revealed this.) Trump tends to jam the airwaves with his content, the powerful shouldn't let those who do not deserve standing in the public square to have it just because they said something that ought to be corrected.

They aren't going to lose jobs they will be phased out.

Trucking companies aren't going to dump rigs that cost, what, $500k each and buy an electric fleet.

They will drive those trucks into the ground and phase in driverless as they phase out standard trucks.

886 We should flip the Doug Jones seat, but given GOP penchant for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory we can't take that for granted. So gotta make sure we win that one. But also need to go for broke to flip the Michigan and Minnesota senate seats. These are doable. Trump will win Michigan again and he has a great chance to win Minnesota this time (he came 1.5 points from taking it last time. We should also go for broke on the New Mexico seat which will be open since Udall is retiring. We also have a decent shot at New Hampshire which Trump would have won in 2016 if not for illegal crossover votes from Massachusetts.

Run the table on those (not likely but a person can dream) and that's a five seat pickup.

Also have to defend our most vulnerable seats (Arizona and, yep, Maine.)

All of this should be doable in 2020 with PDT at the top of the ticket. With the accomplishments of his first term, he will have coattails and bring down ballot candidates across the finish line with him. Let's go for broke to increase our margin in the Senate and in so doing marginalize the power Romney, Murkowski, and Collins have to create mischief and intrigue with their little ego trips. Let's make sure Trump can get judges confirmed in his second term to his heart's content without needing to pander to the Traitorous Trifecta.

916 Both here, with Trump, and in the UK, with Brexit, it has astounded me to see how many long-time politicians have chosen to destroy their careers rather than to accept where the people were leading, long AFTER it was obvious that this choice would end their careers.

In the UK, on December 12, over 80 MP's lost jobs that they could have kept for another 3 years at least if they would have agreed - and now they'll never hold jobs in government again. The Never Trumpers are going down the same road here. Is Pride really that important to them all? Apparently it is.

937 886 We should flip the Doug Jones seat, but given GOP penchant for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory we can't take that for granted. So gotta make sure we win that one. But also need to go for broke to flip the Michigan and Minnesota senate seats. These are doable. Trump will win Michigan again and he has a great chance to win Minnesota this time (he came 1.5 points from taking it last time. We should also go for broke on the New Mexico seat which will be open since Udall is retiring. We also have a decent shot at New Hampshire which Trump would have won in 2016 if not for illegal crossover votes from Massachusetts.

Run the table on those (not likely but a person can dream) and that's a five seat pickup.

Also have to defend our most vulnerable seats (Arizona and, yep, Maine.)

All of this should be doable in 2020 with PDT at the top of the ticket. With the accomplishments of his first term, he will have coattails and bring down ballot candidates across the finish line with him. Let's go for broke to increase our margin in the Senate and in so doing marginalize the power Romney, Murkowski, and Collins have to create mischief and intrigue with their little ego trips. Let's make sure Trump can get judges confirmed in his second term to his heart's content without needing to pander to the Traitorous Trifecta.

Only because, as republicans, we are not used to exercising power. Trump has been ill-advised by those in his inner circle, so he has been hesitant to do what desperately needs to be done.

On the first day of his second term, Trump needs to unceremoniously fire every political appointee in the government. These people need to be replaced with real Americans, plucked from across the country and put in charge of what Washington insiders used to run.

Their mission would be to rearrange and deliver the services that each agency is tasked with the best service and value to the American public. I suspect that every agency would be able to operate at a higher level for half the price than we have now.

On top of reorganizing, I would expect just about every agency to move out of Washington and relocate in states across the country. This would dilute the deep state and the cesspool known as Washington D.C.

Now is the time exercise the power of the American people. Fuck everyone, we're coming through...

991 There are certain lines you don't cross.

Trump treaded on some of them with his campaign bullshit about Cruz' family and so forth.

But this one is clear: the Democrats impeached Trump for jaywalking. He may be entirely guilty of some of what they impeached him for, but none of it comes close to 'high crimes and misdemeanors'. And indeed muscling small states to investigate corrupt US officials is, IMO, entirely within the Presidential purview. Don't give me the 'quid pro quo' bullshit unless you're willing to argue that half our Presidents ought to have been removed from office.

They want you dead, Ben. They want your family dead. I'm not exaggerating.

Now, not everyone in the Democratic Party is on that wing of the left, but... that's like saying "he's not one of those kind of Klansmen" i mean they didn't ALL want to lynch blacks and burn them on crosses, but for God's sake, most of them did and you're not just hanging out with them but wearing the uniform and cheering.

They are generically conservative but a fast talking Dem can seduce them back to the old ways. Hell, Manchin pushed anti 2a now this? But he is a good ol boy and has a lot of time to make it right.

1071 I'm from Utah, and I can tell you that Mitt's shine has worn off pretty good.

There's a reason we put him in: Romney saved the Salt Lake Olympic Games, and he was essentially the first credible Presidential candidate from Utah, which tends to be ignored nationally. So he was a shoe in for election.

I didn't vote for him, because while I'd been a big Mitt guy earlier I'd seen too much. And now much if not most of the Utah voters have seen the true Massachusetts Mitt, and while we may not like Trump, we certainly don't like liberals and leftists either. After all, the rest of the state delegation is fairly conservative--even our Democrat rep is mostly conservative for a Dem, though he signed his death warrant by siding with Pelosi on impeachment so he's out of there, and I think he knows it.

I don't think Mitt will run for reelection, because I think he knows he's toast if he does.

1078 It really, truly, no kidding, for realz IS Good vs. Evil. There is NO middle ground. No compromising. No talking it over. No reaching across the aisle. No bi-partisan. It isn't. It just is NOT that way any more and hasn't been for a while now.

The Left/Dims hate us. With a blinding rage induced hate of a thousand suns (which are going to burn out because climate change, damn you all!) and it's not going to end. Ever.


This is the way it is now. It's not politics. It's not culture. It's life. Period. They hate us. They would slay all of us if they could. Since they can't, they will try to harm us and "end" us in whatever way they can.

So, here we are.

He's young so he doesn't know that for longer than he's been alive the left has been trying to not just destroy everything he claims to believe in and stand for but him personally and physically. They want you dead, Ben. They want your family dead. I'm not exaggerating.

Now, not everyone in the Democratic Party is on that wing of the left, but... that's like saying "he's not one of those kind of Klansmen" i mean they didn't ALL want to lynch blacks and burn them on crosses, but for God's sake, most of them did and you're not just hanging out with them but wearing the uniform and cheering.

There is no common ground left with the radical left. They're off in lunatic devil land, there's nothing to shake hands over.

Kasich in Ohio went "Never Trump" and did not even go to the National Convention in Cleveland (his own state) in 2016. He is a dead man in the state Republican Party. No one wants to touch him now. I think he had dreams of running for the Senate (against Sherrod Brown). That's up in smoke too.

1142 The problem with trying to be even handed and objective about things is that it can lead you to fixate on that instead of the reason you're doing it.

What I mean is this.

There's a difference between being driven by a sense of honor, fairness, and logic, not to mention a love of the truth, to want to find the facts and reality instead of a kneejerk "rah rah team" reaction to everything. To try to see the whole issue and what is going on rather than simply an emotional "I love this" or "I hate this" response/

I try to do this, even if unsuccessfully most of the time.

But the problem is you can become fixated on the goal rather than the cause; you can become interested in "seeing things from both sides" all the time and being the Adult In The Room Who Always Sees Both Sides. That's an easy trap to fall into because it feeds self righteousness "Thank God I'm not like the mob".

God (and the horde) forgive me if I fall into that trap, I try not to.

1144 Mitt Romney was formerly a governor of Massachusetts and now he's a senator from Utah. He's a political opportunist, a carpetbagger and always has been. He lost the presidential election for the Republican Party and more importantly for American Conservatives with serious damage to the social fabric of this country. Romney was too timid to Challenge Obama on the debate stage but he has no problem voting to convict Donald Trump when there is no chance of conviction. Obamacare was modeled after Romneycare and Romney himself is a pale version of Obama. Mitt Romney will never be President of the United States. His plan is obviously since he is tired of being a Republican Senator to present himself as a possible "bipartisan" Vice Presidential choice for whatever Democrat sneaks across the finish line for the Democrat's presidential nomination. Further the Democrats are desperate enough to consider him.

By the way, the challenger, Ned Lamont, was from an old Bolshevik family "victimized" by McCarthyism.Anyhooo, Lieberman got beat in the Dem primary, THEN RAN AS AN INDEPENDENT, AND WON.
In other words, the CT Democrats had no room for JoeLieberman as far back as 2006.Then Ogabe took office, and they went from Menshevik to Bolshevik stage. To this very day.

1157 I have no idea what motivated Mitt. If they want to say he's not a "traitor," hell, I don't know whether that's the right word or not. I do know, however, that he is a naive buffoon who has no idea of the nature of the political knife-fight that the Democrats are playing. Obviously, he has learned absolutely nothing from what happened to him when he ran for President. The Democrats skinned him alive with the most vicious mud-slinging campaign imaginable, and he stood there, took the whole thing and never fought back. And now he's just watched them try to do the same thing to Trump, and he just doesn't get it.

He is exactly the kind of Republican that the Democrats want - the "Loyal Opposition Loser." He is bad for the Republican Party and bad for the country. He should get the hell out of politics and leave it to people who have the sack to fight back against the nastiness that is the Democratic Party.

Reagan's biggest failing was allowing Bush 41 and all his acolytes


My understanding is that it was the price of winning in 1980. Not a "failing".

Meh, Bush 41 is Obama's Biden. He added nothing, but all the important people will tell you he delivered a wavering group of GOPers.

1159 Dear AnnaS

I'm a nobody in politics or social media (pathologist in real life). I picked the name because my email address if said quickly by someone who doesn't know how to pronounce my name sounds like Soze, and a long time ago a friend of mine started calling me Keyser soze from the movie the usual suspects, hence the name

Mitt should have already learned this lesson in 2012, but he's too
desperate for affirmation from those who will never actually respect
him. #ExpelMitt



They are not wrong...

Mitch: Mitt, you are hereby removed from all current senate committees and are now the Junior Senator for the Senate Mop Counting Committee.

Then he can go play the martyr. Right now he is reduced to bitching about mean tweets like any SJW pink hair.

1162 Sen. Mitt Romney - a crying on the outside, laughing on the inside type of clown

Posted by: Boswell at February 05, 2020 03:36 PM (32YRo)

1163 I think the conflict here is that some people want Jesus for President. What would Jesus do if He were in the White House?

Would he tweet nasty things? Would he attack his political opponents and mock them? Would he drag others into the mud and dare them to out wrestle him?

And I think most people would say no, Jesus wouldn't do that. So they are opposed to Trump on a personal level. Plus all his adultery, etc. If you wanted Clinton gone because he was a serial adulterer and how can you trust that, it's hard to say that Trump's ok while Clinton wasn't. Except, of course, did Trump do something in the White House? No.

Me, I am glad I am not the Supreme Judge. But the way I read the Bible, Jesus wanted us to love each other... but He was no wallflower when it came time to call out the elites of His day. Trump says stuff, but he's not come close to what Jesus called the Pharisees and Scribes. And most Christians, I think, believe Jesus was God of the Old Testament as well. And the God of the Old Testament could sling some pretty good fire and brimstone when He wanted. So Trump would seem to be in line with the more "muscular" side of Christianity. At least, my view.

But if you are looking for Jesus as your President, Trump is pretty far from that ideal. Course, compared to a Bernie or a Biden? Trump's a saint!

1164 Mitt, little penguin, represents his jealous self, not his constituents.

He has never recovered from President Trump being elected vs his smarmy and polished turd of himself.

It is a pity Mitt cannot look in the mirror and realize that HE threw the election to Obama in that second debate. Over Benghazi.
He is a traitor to the nation and the state of Utah.

1165 People don't believe me. They think these people -- who have been guilty
of self-serving mercenary careerism all their miserable social-climbing
media suck-up lives -- are "straight shooters."



Oh, I totally believe you. The ones who don't are the people who are convinced that people are essentially good, decent and trustworthy.

1167 "The people of Utah probably agree with him"

Not. A Republican Utah lawmaker has submitted a bill to the legislature to permit recall elections for Senators. That should let you know how much the people of Utah agree with him.

Posted by: Brent Glines at February 05, 2020 04:00 PM (RszGw)

1168 The fundamental issue about Romney voting to convict is that there is no justification for that vote. The notion that the President exerting his legal authority and availing himself of Constitutionally protected rights to defend the executive branch are impeachable offenses means that any president can impeached by any congress and then convicted in the senate. It's east to feel enraged about Romney, especially if you supported his limp-wristed run against Obama, but the bigger issue is a fundamental lack of understanding of his role as jurist in this trial.

Posted by: IanDeal at February 05, 2020 04:08 PM (vgGyZ)

1169 I voted for this 'guy" with a bit of reluctance. I thought Romney was a milquetoast squish not quite as bad as the treacherous vainglorious media whore McCain. Turns out Mitt is just another unprincipled RINO who will betray our republic for a positive article in .the NYT. I'm donating to the recall effort. We don't need a teenage mean-girl representing Utah. Romney is NOT Brigham Young. He is just a sad little e-girl in an old man's body who will swallow a cucumber for "likes."

1170 The senate website is "under maintenance' in case you wanted to tell Ms Mitt what a POS she is BYW.

Posted by: gretl at February 05, 2020 04:20 PM (buP4J)

1171 The truly sad thing is is that you cannot recall a Senator or a House member. No provision for it in the Constitution, alas.

Posted by: Vance at February 05, 2020 04:22 PM (KbgjX)

1172 Balls. Expulsion is the only remedy and that's too high of a bar. The GOP could expel her.

1174 Don Surber put it best: "On March 3, 2016, the native of Michigan who was once governor of Massachusetts went to Utah to use his Mormonism to denounce Donald John Trump." Consider the microphone dropped.

Posted by: hurricane567 at February 06, 2020 01:06 AM (Jj4hG)

1176 I have always presumed that Romney is a decent sort. Be that as it may, it turns out he is just wrong about a whole bunch of important things.

Like so many Never Trumpers, he appears to be clueless as to what's really going on.

What's really going on is that a bunch of hateful, power hungry, dishonest socialists are trying to completely undermine everything that made the U.S. a bastion of freedom and prosperity.

In short, they want they call socialism but will quickly devolved into full blown communism, and they are willing to use any means necessary to get there.

They despise or patronize most Americans and they are at heart anti-American.
