    Sen. Mitt Romney says President Donald Trump is "very likely" to become the 2024 Republican presidential nominee if he runs. "I don't delude myself into thinking I have a big swath of the Republican Party," Romney, a two-time Republican presidential contender and 2012 presidential nominee, said in an interview with Politico. "It's hard to imagine anything that would derail his support," Romney said of Trump. "So if he wants to become the nominee in '24, I think he's very likely to achieve that."
  • Trump reasserts dominance over GOP (Romney weeps)

    Mitt Romney and Josh Hawley, polar opposites in today’s GOP, agree on one thing: Donald Trump’s status as Republican kingmaker. After the former president’s endorsement of a former critic rocketed J.D. Vance to the GOP Senate nomination in Ohio, the two senators can’t help but see things the same way. Hawley (R-Mo.), who led Trump-backed election challenges in the Senate last year, observed that “he’s the leader of the party, that’s clear … If he decides to run, he will be the nominee.” And while Romney twice voted to convict Trump in impeachment trials, speaking out against him more than...
  • McCarthy said removing Trump by 25th Amendment ‘takes too long’ on post-Jan. 6 tape

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said in the aftermath of the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol attack that removing former President Trump through the 25th Amendment “takes too long,” according to the latest leaked recording of a call with top House GOP colleagues. McCarthy, who is aiming to be Speaker if Republicans win the House majority in November, also said that what Trump did was “atrocious and totally wrong” but expressed opposition to impeachment on the call.
  • Kevin McCarthy’s leaked recording shows that he’s the lesser of two evils in the GOP

    But Democrats should be careful what they wish for, as McCarthy’s potential demise isn’t necessarily a good thing when considering the alternative. Yes, his behavior is despicable and cowardly. But here’s the thing: In the rare moment of candor in which a leaked recording has permitted the world to listen in, McCarthy at least seemed to have the ability to recognize when something is way off. At least he exhibited some modicum of human sensibility, enabling him to recognize gross injustice and culpability, if only to quickly sweep it under the rug for political expediency. snip But it could be...
  • ‘Puppet Of The Democratic Party’: Tucker Carlson Trashes ‘MSNBC Contributor’ Kevin McCarthy

    Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson ripped into House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy on Tuesday over recently released audio recordings of the California Republican criticizing then-President Donald Trump and fellow GOP representatives in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot. McCarthy promised members of his leadership team, including House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and then-Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney, that he would encourage Trump to resign in a Jan. 10 phone call. After the top House Republican denied having the conversation, two New York Times reporters released an audio recording of the conversation. The two reporters released...
  • Kevin McCarthy struggles badly in Fox News interview over leaked Trump tape

    House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy escaped the wrath of former President Donald Trump after the California Republican was caught on tape stating he planned to ask Trump to resign following the Jan. 6 riots — but that doesn't mean the saga is over for him yet. On Monday, McCarthy visited the southern border with other Republican lawmakers, and did a brief interview with Fox News national correspondent Bill Melugin. Melugin asked McCarthy about the leaked tape, as well as the lawmaker's assertion that reporting done by New York Times political correspondents was "totally false." "I never told the president to...

    WSJ ^ | Jan 6 | Karl Rove
    The GOP has a duty to condemn the riot and those who refuse to acknowledge it. We’re in an acrimonious period of partisan tribalism and have been for some time. Both parties are guilty of overwrought denunciations of their political opponents. My criticisms are often aimed at Democrats; on the anniversary of Jan. 6, I’m addressing squarely those Republicans who for a year have excused the actions of the rioters who stormed the Capitol, disrupted Congress as it received the Electoral College’s results, and violently attempted to overturn the election. These apologists say those who stormed the Capitol were innocent...

    Rep. Jim Banks says it's unnecessary for Democrats to spend almost $40 billion to expand Medicare to cover more services when the program is currently headed toward insolvency ============================================================================ Turning the tables on Democrats who argue Republican opposition to Obamacare has denied Americans health care coverage, a key GOP lawmaker is warning that President Biden's Build Back Better Act would lead to roughly 2 million people losing their employer-based medical insurance. "Democrats have always sought to make as many people dependent on the federal government for health care as possible, while eliminating every other option that could drive down prices...

    The Congressional Budget Office on Thursday released its “official” cost estimates for the House tax and entitlement bill, but don’t believe it. The CBO gnomes aren’t lying about a 10-year deficit estimate of $367 billion. They’re obliged to score the bill under rules that Democrats have rigged with multiple tricks that disguise the real cost by trillions of dollars. Democrats phase out the biggest programs in the bill while paying for them with 10 years of tax increases. They phase-in other programs and off-load costs to the states. The Penn Wharton Budget Model estimates the House bill would cost nearly...

    Sen. Mitt Romney says if Congressional Democrats and President Joe Biden are set on passing a $3.5 trillion spending bill without a single Republican vote, then Democrats should be responsible for raising the nation’s debt limit. “Right now it’s my colleagues across the aisle who are raising the spending. They should be the ones who raise the debt ceiling,” Romney said during a wide-ranging visit with The Tribune’s editorial board. The fight over the debt limit is a high-stakes game of “chicken” playing out in Congress, where Democrats have very slim majorities in both the House and Senate. The debt...

    Senator Mitt Romney said that he believes former President Donald Trump would win the Republican presidential nomination if he ran for office in 2024. "He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party," Romney said at a New York Times event on Tuesday. "I don't know if he'll run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I'm pretty sure he will win the nomination." Romney, the GOP presidential nominee in 2012, said that "a lot can happen between now and 2024," adding that he is not "great at predicting." However, he said he expects...

    Republican senators Mitt Romney and Tom Cotton will introduce legislation aimed at raising the minimum wage while addressing concerns about illegal immigrants taking American jobs. In tweets posted Tuesday by both Romney (R-Ut.) and Cotton (R-Ark.), the senators revealed their plans to put forward a bill “that would increase the minimum wage while ensuring businesses cannot hire illegal immigrants. We must protect American workers.” “Congress hasn’t raised the minimum wage in more than a decade, leaving many Americans behind,” Romney tweeted. “Our proposal gradually raises the minimum wage without costing jobs, setting it to increase automatically with inflation, and requires...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R., Utah) on Thursday unveiled a proposal for a monthly child allowance, in which most parents of children younger than six would receive $350 and parents of kids ages six to 17 would receive $250. Romney’s Family Security Act is similar to a Democratic plan to increase the child tax credit from $2,600 to $3,600 as part of Biden’s coronavirus relief legislation. Democrats want to boost the tax credit, make it “fully refundable” so that lower-income parents qualify, and have the Internal Revenue Service disburse the payments in advance on a monthly basis, essentially creating a child...

    Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Thursday on CNN’s “Situation Room” that President Donald Trump’s leadership through the coronavirus pandemic had been “a great human tragedy.” Anchor Wolf Blitzer said, “Yesterday on the coronavirus, it was the single deadliest day of the pandemic. More than 2,800 Americans were reported dead just yesterday alone, more than 100,000 people are hospitalized all across the country. The CDC director says the next three months will be, in his words, the most difficult time in the public health history of this nation. So here is the question, Senator, where is the president’s leadership? He’s obsessed...

    Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah is stressing that the country’s politics has “moved away from the spirited debate to a vile, vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.” And the 2012 GOP presidential nominee warns that the "rabid attacks kindle the conspiracy mongers and the haters" to launch "dangerous action” such as the recent kidnapping plot against Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Romney, the most vocal Republican critic of President Trump in Congress, took to Twitter on Tuesday to take aim at the president.

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) took a shot at President Donald Trump Tuesday, lobbing a veiled accusation that the president has gotten “cozy” with dictators such as North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. “I have no idea what’s going to happen with my party. I represent a very small slice of my party. The party has taken a different course. My party was very strong anti-dictators, anti-authoritarian leaders, anti people like Kim Jung Un and Vladimir Putin, and now the party seems to be more comfortable with people like that,” Romney stated during a webcast hosted by the Center for Strategic and International...

    Moreover, they will not be satisfied if Joe Biden wins the presidency. They want to marginalize anyone who has supported Donald Trump, making it impossible for them to hold office — or to express their views. The Post reported: [“Republican” strategist John] Weaver also said that “dispatching Trump does not dispatch Trumpism” and cited Fox News host Tucker Carlson, as well as Republican Sens. Tom Cotton (Ark.) and Josh Hawley (Mo.), as other potential party leaders he hopes to sideline. “The next battle will be making sure those from his ilk do not get the next Republican nomination,” Weaver said....
