The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year.
Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday.
"BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in a tweet, which featured a photo of a troubled-looking Romney.

Matt Schlapp (@mschlapp) January 31, 2020 It is unclear whether Romney was expecting to attend this year's CPAC next month.
Romney recently slammed Trump's critical statements about former national security adviser John Bolton, whom Democratic House impeachment managers have fought to have as a witness. Bolton announced earlier this month he would testify if subpoenaed, and excerpts of his unpublished book have leaked to the press in recent days containing allegations of Trump pressuring Ukraine to help collect information on his political rivals.
He has made a career of trashing people by tweet, Romney told the New York Times. It is part of his shtick, and its working for him."
This CPAC news comes after Utah state Republican Rep. Tim Quinn introduced a bill that would allow voters to recall a sitting U.S. senator. Quinn, 56, claimed the bill was unrelated to Romney but said it was a good mechanism in place to make any senator, current or future, a little more accountable to those who elected him...

Looks like The Donald is leaning down to give the bozo Mo a hotfoot.
Strip him of ALL Committee assignments.
Governor,Senator Mitt Romney the epitome of a Good Mormon
Mormons make Muslims seem civilized and well reasoned. Picture people jumping out of fiery towers to their death. Yeah Mitt you are despised - welcome to the John McCain level enjoy your stay.
I was mostly arguing why it wouldnt be Romney - hes traditional, AND a loser, AND was never VP.
Pence may indeed be too traditional for these times, but hes not a loser and he does have the VP thing going for him, which at least gets you an audition.
For example, does anyone think for a minute that Slow (and crooked) Joe Biden would be even a consideration, much less a strong contender, had he not been Obamas VP?
Excellent! Thank you, Matt and Mercedes Schlapp.
Amen to that! I've had more than my fill of this effete RINO traitor.
Dont dump on Ann . Mitt is a profound jerk but best to leave the family out of it
Good. He should be constantly reminded what a Piece of Obama he is. Scumbag bastard.
“Strip him of ALL Committee assignments”.
I concur. both he AND Collins should be temporarily removed from their committee assignments pending an internal Majority Leadership investigation where a never ending list of potential witness may be called to be deposed

Mitt Romney (D-Kolob)
No. Just no.
Dont remember where I read it, but I believe a Utah legislator has filed a bill to be able to recall the carpetbagger!
Romney, you are FIRED
Dude will be 90 but who cares the Democrats need someone
Metaphor for the whole thing:
Mittens is Chong-Li, the Dems are the crowd, Schlapp (and you and I) are the judges.
Oh, by the way...thats our President looking on, getting ready for the championship bout.
Romney will never be president. I once voted for Romney, but came to genuinely hate him after his vicious March 3, 2016 speech in which he unloaded on then candidate Donald Trump. Here are some excerpts from that disgusting speech:
Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished.
First, the economy: If Donald Trump's plans were ever implemented, the country would sink into a prolonged recession.
I am far from the first to conclude that Donald Trump lacks the temperament to be president.
Dishonesty is Trump's hallmark...His is not the temperament of a stable, thoughtful leader. His imagination must not be married to real power.
Think of Donald Trump's personal qualities, the bullying, the greed, the showing off, the misogyny, the absurd third grade theatrics.
Trump relishes any poll that reflects what he thinks of himself. But polls are also saying that he will lose to Hillary Clinton.
Here's what I know. Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing the American public for suckers: He gets a free ride to the White House and all we get is a lousy hat.
His domestic policies would lead to recession. His foreign policies would make America and the world less safe. He has neither the temperament nor the judgment to be president. And his personal qualities would mean that America would cease to be a shining city on a hill.
Time has shown that Romney was 100% wrong in what he said that March day. Between the two it is Romney who lacks character. During his run for the presidency, Romney went to Trump looking for support and a fat donation. After Trump won, Romney went to the President-elect and begged for the Secretary of State job. During his senate run, Romney sought and received President Trump's support and endorsement. Romney is a snake...apologies for insulting snakes everywhere.
