Skip to comments.Mitt Romney, Looooooser Again

Tired of all this WINNING yet? The S&P 500 closed at a new record high on Wednesday, as the Dow Jones Industrial average surged by 483 points, and the NASDAQ also recorded significant gains. The markets were buoyed by the acquittal of President Donald Trump by the Senate along with positive indications of progress in developing a vaccine for the Coronavirus. The WINNING is glorious.
In other news, Mitt Romney is still a LOOOOOOOOOOOSER. The junior Senator from Utah finally managed to secure a place in history, albeit alongside fellow American loooooooosers like Benedict Arnold and Aaron Burr, becoming the only Senator in the long history of our nation to vote in favor of removing a president from his own political party.
After telling the execrable Chris Wallace in an interview that Romney himself requested, think about that that he would vote yes on both articles of impeachment, Romney then went out and delivered a speech, complete with fake tears, on the Senate floor, blaming his idiotic decision on his religion. The gutless hypocrite then tried to have things both ways, actually splitting his vote, voting yes on Article 1, but no on Article 2.
What a buffoon. What a gutless, mendacious looooooooser this guy is.
Hilariously, within moments after the impeachment trial had finally, blessedly adjourned, the Trump campaign issued an ad that it had already created in anticipation of the Romney betrayal. Check this out:

Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump Embedded video 115K 5:45 PM - Feb 5, 2020 Twitter Ads info and privacy 56.4K people are talking about this The ad, of course, was met with much tsk-tsking and pearl clutching from the two dozen nitwits who remain in the #NeverTrump faction of the GOP, to whom Romney remains a looooooooser hero for his actively tanking the 2012 election against Barack Obama His Own Self. But nobody cared, least of all President Trump, who also sent the corrupt media mavens into howls of outrage by tweeting out this gem a little later:

In the end, all the loooooooooser Romney could accomplish was to hand the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies a talking point that will last a day or two. The inept creep is so ineffective at influencing his colleagues that he wasnt even able to bring fellow RINOs like Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski along with him into the annals of traitorous infamy.
Romney believes he is safe from the voters back home despite his mendacity, since he doesnt have to face them again until 2024. But voters especially those of the conservative stripe tend to have long memories about the special kind of deceit Romney practiced in getting elected to his senate office in 2018. Remember, Romney ran as an extreme conservative, and promised voters he would strongly support the Presidents goals. Remember, too, that Romney repeatedly sought a high position in the incoming Trump Administration, and made many public statements filled with glowing praise about the President at that time and during his campaign.
But hey, Romneys probably going to be running for the presidency in 2024 thats what this vote was really all about. Hes just positioning himself as the titular leader for an anti-Trump rebellion within the GOP as the Trump second term winds down. Thats another looooooooser of a proposition, but Mitt loves loooooooosing.
Romney bragged to Wallace that he has voted with the President 80% of the time. But that percentage would actually place him among the most disloyal members of the senate Republican caucus. Hell, simply voting to confirm all the federal judges and senior political appointees whose confirmations have come before the Senate would get a Republican within range of the 80% mark.
If he was truly voting his conscience as a deeply religious man, surely Romney must do the same where appointments to the federal judiciary are concerned, right? Yet, of the dozens of appointees to the courts that have been confirmed by the Senate since Romney showed up, his conscience has managed not to find a reason to oppose a single one of them.
But those were quiet votes, away from the glare of the lights that accompany the TV cameras. It seems Romneys religion and conscience only manage to engage when they tell him that voting against the President will grab him hour upon hour of favorable coverage from all the corrupt media Democrat toadies who defamed him during his 2012 run and who hate his guts every other day of the year. Thats a special kind of religion and conscience Mendacious Mitt has going for him there.
A political party with any pride and backbone would expel Romney today. But were talking about the Republicans here.
That is all.
Romney can kiss 2024 good-bye.
Mitt COULD claim the party left him. And he would be correct in that assessment.
We know mitt is working for the democrats. What if mitt is working for the russians too ?
What if mitt is working for the russians too ?
His chief of staff is working for the Ukrainians.
Junior Senator from Utah. More like lame duck Senator.
like Ryan, the GOP will do NOTHING except bow to the freak.
BOYCOTT the GOP until he is removed.
It is time for the Party of Trump
The final results of the Dem Iowa Caucus are in, and Mitt Romney is the winner.
If you are a Mormon, your real leaders are harry reid and mittens mcromney.
Romney may very well be safe back home because of the Mormon vote that does not like Trump's personal life.
Mormons vote against their otherwise conservative values in the same way that Catholics vote for pro-choice Democrats against their otherwise conservative values.
Wait until he runs for president this election as an independent to siphon votes from Trump.
I understand God Himself directed the very extreme conservative, Pierre Delecto to vote for conviction.
I really doubt that, unfortunately.
Strong faith and lack of critical thinking have nothing to do with one another. He refused to recognize a flawed, rushed, and corrupt impeachment process in the House. The Democrats took a giant poop in the well if the Senate, and his God told him they were a pile of golden tablets.
If he runs, he certainly won't do so because he wants to live in the White House. After the 1912 campaign, his son Tagg said, "He wanted to be president less than anyone I've met in my life. He had no desire... to run."
THATS a fact!
I cant help thinking the insufferable Romney assessed that he will not be re-elected in Utah? Maybe he doesnt care. Maybe Ann decided to put the Utah carpet bag back on the shelf and pick up the Mass carpet bag, for moving back to Boston.
Romney is one political streaker. His sanctimonious *Smallness* precedes him everywhere and he cant shake who he is. (Trump nailed him as sanctimonious.)
The thing is - i dont understand what Romney’s end game was.
1. Did he just want to re-establish his ‘credentials’ with the MSM? They will forget him in a couple of weeks
2. Was there a Repub party play? I just dont see it
3. Was he just lashing out? He should have gone all-out then and moved to an Independent
He just did not think this through
