Skip to comments.Mitt Romney 'formally not invited' to CPAC after impeachment vote on witnesses
Posted on 01/31/2020 5:46:04 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
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 Bolton announced earlier this month he would testify if subpoenaed, and excerpts of his unpublished book have leaked to the press in recent days containing allegations of Trump pressuring Ukraine to help collect information on his political rivals.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...

Yup. Pierre delecto has Hillary-itis and a sore loser. I’m sure Trump knows he wants the nomination and wont give him. The endorsement . Trump always remembers a diss..
Yup. Read the archives on FR during the election. Everyone here was frustrated and rumors that he intentionally lost to obamatard.
Lol. Why do you have to be a member of the gop to vote? I never was . if I like the candidate , I give directly to the PAC..
He better run as a Dem.
But he’s a old white male..there is no way he could run for President as a dim..oh wait..most of them are old white males.
Romney must know at some level that his pals at CNN and Dems in the Senate hate him as much as we do. What a shitbag. He has ruined his fathers reputation, such as it was. He is now Michael Avenetti with a clean suit.
Ritt Momsey...persona non grata.
The secret French character, Pierre Delecto on the internet!
His claims to fame are very few. A Judas he is , and now he will be forever remembered in his betrayal.
I come from a long line of worriers and I'm already focusing on 2024 but...Romney is nowhere in that scenario.
Shunned like an irreverent Mormon.
Here's your engraved non-invitation, Mittens.
Romneys father ruined Detroit in 67.”””
Can you clarify???
What Romney doesn't like is that, as opposed to weasel politicians, Trump says what he means and does what he says. Better one person who bluntly tells the truth about what they think, as opposed to a room full of calculating, self-serving politicians who have made a career of obfuscation.
Will they hopefully be checking for magic underwear at the door?
(Kidding lighten up )
If it wasn’t for Twitter, we would never hear the actual words from Trump.
Twitter lets the public hear Trump—unfiltered & unedited. That is the way all the rest of us talk to each other-—I like Trump doing this. I don’t trust the media to NOT edit & twist any interview they do with him.
Yeah....the inventor of Romneycare....right
......”Hard to believe GREAT statesmans like Romney and McCain lost their POTUS elections against Obama”.....
McCain outright handed the election to Obama, it was easily seen and heard during the debates. He never intended to win.
As for Romney, like Hillary nobody likes him, without the mormon membership voting for him he would never make it on his own... they think he’s the annointed one to change the world..
He (Romey) has to be CORRUPT. No other explanation makes sense. Same goes for the other one.”””
Romney has made million in his business-—He buys out bankrupt companies & breaks up the assets & sells them for a large profit. Perfectly legal, but somewhat distasteful.
In the Trump economy, Romney’s ‘business’ must be on the skids.
As long as Trump keeps the economy rising, there are more jobs, rising stock market & fewer targets for Romney & his corporate vultures.
Romney must hate Trump for all of that.
He blew it after doing a good job on running the Olympics in the US many decades ago. After that, it was The Me Only Club.”””
The Utah winter Olympics was in serious trouble hen Romney & OTHERS came in.
Romney took all the credit he could suck up, but there were MANY OTHER people who managed to get the winter Olympics back on track & make it all happen.
I had a friend of 30 years who was Mormon. He didn’t like Romney, but felt somewhat attached to him due to being Mormon.
That person died in Nov 2019 & I am glad that he never lived long enough to see Romney’s vote yesterday. He would have had a final heart attack.
By using the word shtick, Romney illustrates his profound lack of understanding.
Donald Trump seized the power of Twitter to exclude the media from power. The President also eliminated the daily press briefing.
In so doing, the President conquered the press and eliminated it as the primary voice.
Mitt just isn’t
