    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) says he would consider retiring if Mitt Romney ran to replace him. Hatch told National Journal in a Wednesday interview that he hasn't made a decision yet on whether he will run for reelection in 2018. "I know I made a comment that I'll likely run for reelection. I haven't made that final determination," he said. "There are a bunch of reasons to do it, a bunch of reasons not to do it."
  • Is Trump silencing Ryan like he did Romney?

    03/17/2017 7:43:19 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 20 replies
    If you follow the logic of an unnamed White House staffer in the Atlantic, the whole idea that former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney was being considered to be President Trump's secretary of state was a ruse from the beginning. Romney was one of Trump's biggest critics before the election. And after Trump declined to pick him for secretary of state, how could he criticize Trump going forward and not have it look like sour grapes? “ ‘Judas Iscariot got 30 pieces of silver; Mitt Romney got a dish of frog legs at Jean-Georges. And even at that, it was the appetizer...

    Facing a sea of antagonistic, left wing Washington reporters, President Donald Trump should have opened his mesmerizing White House press conference last week this way: "Most of you covered me (pause) ...

That would have been a play on the words President Barack Obama used at his first appearance before the White House Correspondents Dinner in May 2009, shortly after he was first elec 1

    Bill Maher would happily hand over the $1 million he donated to then-President Barack Obama in 2012 to Mitt Romney if it would alter history. HBOs Real Time host sat down with CNNs Van Jones for an interview set to air Friday night and discussed the law of unintended consequences now that President Trump is the 45th U.S. commander in chief. The comedian lamented his Priorities USA Action donation aimed at stopping Mr. Romneys presidential ambitions. Oh, the Bush years. I wish, Mr. Mahertold the CNN host.

But let’s be real: A freshman senator at age … 71, which is what he’d be on election day 2018? As good as he looks and as healthy as he seems, it’s rare — maybe even unprecedented — for a senator to be popularly elected to a first full term in his 70s.

Im not going to open a door and Im not going to close a door. All doors are open, Romney said after mentioning the 2018 Senate race.

    In the Chronicle Review, a Stanford historian interviews George Nash, distinguished chronicler of the political right, with the pretty tacit intent of bashing Trump supporters. "It might be preposterous in this, the year of Trump, to even think about conservatism as an intellectual movement," Jennifer Burns writes. "Trump's unexpected rise seems to lay bare a simple fact -- that conservatism has not only lost the battle of ideas but ceded the terrain of sophisticated thought altogether." "But a deeper understanding of the intellectual currents that have coursed beneath modern conservatism is essential to explaining why those currents now appear to...

Yes, he said that. That is frightening coming from a Presidential candidate. Instead of spending the ensuing years studying jihad, Romney appears hardwired for delusion in his latest remarks.
