    Former Republican Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey claimed Friday that voting on articles of impeachment would be “unfair” to President Joe Biden. “I think it would be unfair to vote Articles of Impeachment because there’s no evidence there..”

    Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, says Republicans want the border "closed" as part of a potential congressional agreement for additional emergency spending requested by the White House and criticized "clueless" Democrats who want to negotiate border provisions. "Dems want $106B—GOP wants a closed border. That’s the trade. But clueless Dems want to negotiate the border bill. Not going to happen," Romney said on X, formerly Twitter. "Is an open border more important to Dems than Ukraine and Israel?"
  • Is this the smoking gun to finally remove Ronna McDaniel?

    11/28/2023 1:41:16 PM PST · by Tench_Coxe · 30 replies
    If there’s one RINO bum whom the America First base would love to see removed, it’s Ronna McDaniel. When this woman isn’t spending thousands on plastic surgery and fancy new clothes, she’s busy advancing the interests of the GOP establishment. Thanks to Ronna, we’re stuck with RINO candidates who have zero interest in promoting the America First agenda, and that’s precisely how she wants to keep it. Unfortunately, President Trump hasn’t fully thrown his weight behind removing Ronna, and that’s understandable to a certain extent. After all, she’s firmly entrenched in the RNC, and ousting her would be a messy...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) signaled that nearly any candidate in the 2024 field, of either party, would be an “upgrade” over another term for former President Trump. “I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans — maybe not Vivek [Ramaswamy] — but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,” the retiring senator said Friday in an interview with CBS’s Norah O’Donnell. “I’d be happy to vote for a number of the Democrats too,” he continued. “It would be an upgrade, in my opinion, from Donald Trump...

    Former Republican presidential candidate and outgoing Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said he would vote for a Democrat if former President Donald Trump or political newcomer Vivek Ramaswamy secure the Republican nomination.CBS News host Norah O’Donnell asked the retiring senator for his preference in the 2024 Republican presidential field.“Anybody. I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans, maybe not Vivek, but the others that are running would be acceptable to me and I’d be happy to vote for them.

    Utah Sen. Mitt Romney revealed the two GOP presidential candidates he refuses to support under any circumstance in a “Person to Person” interview that aired on CBS News. Romney responded that he would support “anybody” except former President Donald Trump and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy when asked by Norah O’Donnell if there was anybody he liked in the Republican field. “You know, I would uh, I’d be happy to support virtually any one of the Republicans. Maybe not Vivek. But uh, but the others that are running would be acceptable to me, and I’d be happy to vote for them,” Romney...
  • DeSantis says Romney 'never fought for us.' An unearthed yearbook photo shows he once campaigned for him

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Tuesday took aim at fellow Republican Mitt Romney, painting the outgoing senator as a member of the "surrender caucus of Republicans" who "never fought for us in the beginning." "I don't really know Mitt Romney," DeSantis said in response to a question about a Romney-backed gathering of presidential candidates last month. But a black-and-white photograph from DeSantis' Harvard Law School yearbook unearthed by ABC News indicates that at one point, DeSantis campaigned on Romney's behalf. The image shows the cheerful-looking law student wielding a "Romney for Governor'' sign during the 2002 Massachusetts gubernatorial campaign --...

    The Federalist ^ | 10/30/23 | MARK HEMINGWAY
    Last month, Mitt Romney announced he will retire from the Senate after one term. Romney, who is 76, cited his age. That was undoubtedly a major consideration for a guy with a platoon of grandchildren. It’s also true that Romney is unpopular with Utah voters and had no real chance of reelection after becoming the most prominent elected Republican antagonist of Donald Trump. With Romney’s 30-year political career ending with a whimper, there would naturally be a forceful attempt to shape his legacy as something other than a failure. Fortunately, Romney already made plans for this. The Atlantic’s McKay Coppins,...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said on CBS’s “Sunday Morning” that former President Donald Trump represented “a failure of character,” which is changing the psyche of our nation. Anchor Norah O’Donnell said, “You were once the party’s nominee, and now you’re a pariah in the Republican Party.” Romney said, “Yeah, that’s saying it in a gentle way, yeah. I mean, yeah, no question. I don’t really have a home in my party. I come from a tradition of, you know, Ronald Reagan and George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush and John McCain. Those are the people that have shaped...

    Romney not knowing what Burisma was in the middle of the impeachment about Burisma is not terribly surprising. But proud ignorance is not a virtue, and it’s certainly not principled.Mitt Romney’s longtime stenographer McKay Coppins has a new book out called Romney: A Reckoning. The book is an airing of silly and surprisingly petty grievances from Utah’s unpopular junior senator, who lost a winnable presidential campaign against Barack Obama in 2012 and is now being driven out of the Senate by his inability to win reelection.Much of the book details Romney’s growing appreciation of his Democrat colleagues and their policies...

    h4>In the middle of the horrors unfolding throughout the world — horrors supported by Democrats and funded by Barack Obama and Joe Biden — how about some good news? Honestly, does the news get any gooder than that cuck Mitt Romney permanently limping out of public office while limply trying to stop Donald Trump? Better still, this news comes from the Incredible Shrinking Washington Post’s Maeve Reston, a credibly-accused racist who made a project to personally destroy Dr. Ben Carson with lies.Anyway, here’s a clip from today’s episode of Highlander 2: The Cuckening:Alarmed by the dominance of Donald Trump less...

    Oprah Winfrey reportedly suggested running for president alongside Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on a unity ticket in 2020 to thwart former President Trump’s reelection hopes. Romney disclosed to The Atlantic staff writer McKay Coppins that the media mogul pitched the unity ticket with the moderate senator “to save the country,” according to book excerpts published by Axios. Coppins’s book “Romney: A Reckoning” comes out next week. Romney said he deflected the idea, pointing to his belief that such a push would benefit Trump’s reelection chances. A source familiar with Winfrey said she was never serious about running, though some confidants...

    Romney made the remarks Tuesday evening during a Q&A with his former running mate and former House Speaker Paul Ryan at the E2 Summit in Park City, a gathering of influential Republican donors and thinkers. Four presidential candidates spoke to summit attendees earlier in the day Tuesday, including former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who was at the dinner Tuesday night; former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley; former Vice President Mike Pence; and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum. Romney said he’s encouraged Democratic senators — including Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey and Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia — to...

    Senator Mitt Romney and former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan are holding a two-day summit that began Tuesday. It is described as a “closed-door” summit in Park City, Utah. The Republican presidential ticket from 2012, who lost an election that should have been winnable, brought together four current presidential candidates. The four are Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Chris Christie, and Doug Burgum. This is an 11-year-old summit called the E2 Summit. It focuses on foreign policy, tech, and finance/business. Those attending the summit are “well-heeled, well-wired Republicans” who want to find an alternative to Trump and fund that candidate.The...

    The two men who were on the 2012 Republican presidential ticket are holding a closed-door event with a few 2024 candidates – but noticeably absent from the lineup are Ron DeSantis and Vivek Ramaswamy. Sen. Mitt Romney and his former running mate Paul Ryan are hosting the two-day summit in Park City, Utah with the goal of finding an alternative to Donald Trump winning the GOP nomination next year. The candidates at the forum Tuesday and Wednesday are former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, former Vice President Mike Pence, former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum.

    en. Mitt Romney said House Republicans were on a “pathway to chaos” after eight of them voted with all House Democrats to oust former Speaker Kevin McCarthy from his leadership position. The small, angry group of Republicans who toppled McCarthy had him in their crosshairs after he headed off a government shutdown by bringing a bill to the floor Saturday that extended funding for the government for 45 days. With McCarthy gone, a shutdown may be more likely, given how difficult it will be for Republicans to pass all of the necessary spending bills by the mid-November deadline. Romney, R-Utah,...

    I knew there was something wrong with Mitt Romney, really wrong, when my mom – a daughter of Pennsylvania’s steel mill country, but a dedicated Republican, told me back in 2012, “I just don’t like him.” Of course, those steel mills are all gone now, moved to China by guys who either were, or looked exactly like, Mitt Romney. Now he’s finally calling it quits as a senator, apparently by popular demand. His departure is cause for celebration. Mitt Romney is a bad person who pretends to be a good person. He is the blow-dried embodiment of everything awful about...

    When Mitt Romney announced his retirement from electoral politics on Wednesday after one term in the US Senate, he made no mention of his deep roots in Massachusetts. But those who have known him for decades say they saw unmistakable echoes of his time as governor of the state in his pragmatic streak in the hyper-partisan US Capitol. The Utah Republican, 76, said he was leaving content with his work, noting that in the first two years of the Biden administration, he was at the center of several significant bipartisan pieces of legislation, including the infrastructure bill, a gun safety...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis had absolutely nothing on his schedule for his official duties as Governor of Florida on September 14, 2023, which also happened to be his 45th birthday. Instead of spending his birthday in Florida on Thursday, a weekday, in which he is supposed to be working as Governor of Florida, a job he is paid to do with Florida tax payer money, DeSantis spent his birthday fundraising for his failed Presidential campaign in New York City with elitist Wall Street donors.DeSantis kicked his birthday morning off with a breakfast fundraiser in New York City that was hosted...

    …many private-equity experts have long explained that the goal of Bain and similar companies was never to create jobs per se — but to generate profit for itself and its investors. If this … tape again causes Romney problems, though, it is likely to be because of its tone. His 47 percent language was seen as labeling nearly half the country as moochers who would never take responsibility for their own lives. This time, it's that word "harvesting," which brings to mind, for instance, organ harvesting from the recently deceased.
