Seven years after running for president as the GOP standard bearer, U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney on Monday described himself as a renegade Republican and said that he is not part of the Republican establishment these days.
In a wide-ranging speech at the Sutherland Institute, a conservative think tank in Salt Lake City, Utahs junior senator argued against socialist proposals being discussed on the Democratic presidential debate stage such as Medicare for All and free college tuition. He also lamented that neither party is interested in talking about the debt and the deficit.
I guess I should consider myself a renegade Republican because I still believe that deficits and debt matter a lot, Romney said.
The freshman senator and onetime presidential nominee went on to criticize several aspects of President Donald Trumps trade and foreign relations policies.

Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.
Horseht. he was always part of the UNiparty establishment.
People in Utah are getting shafted. NEver should have voted for one of their own Mormon without accountability. He will switch democrat in the middle.
Yeah... when I think “rebel”, I think “Mitt”.
Mittens never was ‘”part of the Republican establishment”. Lighten up Mitt, you loser you. You gave Obama his second term. Idiot.
He never was a Republican.
He was Harry Reid’s spy along with Flake and McCain
At least he admits he is a Dem.
Guess the Magic Underwear won't protect ya from kiddie-diddling charges, eh, Mitt-licker?
“Romney Says He’s No Longer ‘Part of The Republican Establishment’”
What happened!? Did they throw him out?
And exactly just how much did Romney trim from the State budget when he was governor of Massachusetts, eh?
Maverick and Renegade. A couple of MRs. Oops! Not sposed to call them mental retards. Sorry.
Trumphas is the rebel. Romney is the sad pile of dirt.
Oh look, another backstabbing, lying, egomaniac Republican.
How disgustingly common.
Mittens didn’t have time for that when he was diddling kiddies and child sex trafficking...
Just checking out the predictable snide remarks.
Has the Utah Republican Party censured Romney yet?
My brother actually met Romney at a small private function and had a chance to talk with him. He said he was dumb. I guess the voters of Utah were dumber.
This UT resident finds this carpet bagging LIB loser to a true nitwit . Renegade . ..no. Nitwit...YES.
He would have some credibility on that point if HE had talked about that in 2012. He had zip to say about it.
Scaramucci, Bill Kristol and George Conway are probably
BEGGING Mitt to primary the president. They are pouring on the complements and declarations of faith in Mitt’s potential greatness. “Yes You Can!!” they chant in voice messages.
If he had any courage and honesty, he would have said this BEFORE running in the Republican Senate primary race in Utah.
