    U.S. Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said Friday he supports President Donald Trump's push for a border wall that has led to a government shutdown and questioned why Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi won't agree to "another few miles" of barriers on the U.S.-Mexico border. Romney also said he plans to keep working with other senators to find interim solutions, such as legislation that would make sure essential government employees still working get paid now. The 2012 GOP presidential nominee and new Utah senator acknowledged that it "takes two to tango" but backed Trump's position and chided Pelosi for hers....

    Newly-elected Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Monday called for conservative Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) to resign from the House because of his remarks questioning whether white supremacy is "offensive." ďI think he ought to step aside and I think Congress ought to make it very clear he has no place there,Ē Romney told CNNís Manu Raju on Monday. A spokeswoman for Romney confirmed the statement. Romney is the latest high-profile Republican voice to condemn Kingís comments made in an interview with The New York Times in which he said, ďwhite nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization ó how did that language...

I don’t care what consenting gay adults do in the privacy of their own home.But I do care about spiraling health care costs that, for decades, have been growing substantially faster than the rate of inflation.There’s already a very low cost way for sexually active gay men to substantially reduce their risk of contracting HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

    Former Nevada Sen. Harry Reid is pushing for a Mitt Romney challenge to President Trump in 2020, saying Thursday that Trump has no conscience. ďIíve had dealings with the man,Ē Reid said of Trump. ďI think heís amoral. I donít think he has a conscience.Ē Reid said he and Romney had differences in the past. But he said he likes Romney and thinks heís ďa moderate voice the Republicans need.Ē He also insisted that he had claimed Romney hadnít paid ďhis fair share of taxes,Ē rather than no taxes and said he was glad he had raised the issue.

    Sen. James Lankford will occasionally take issue with President Donald Trumpís tactics and rhetoric. But heís not sure what Mitt Romney was thinking with his biting condemnation of the president before he was even sworn into office. ďIt kind of felt like the same thing Trump does to everybody, Romney does to Trump. Smack you, and then want to negotiate,Ē said Lankford, a Republican from Oklahoma. ďIt is funny to me that while he was complaining about President Trumpís personal attacks, he was personally attacking President Trump. I donít know if he sees the irony in it.Ē
  • Romney and the Never Trumpers Are Hiding Behind "Character" (Really good)

    RUSH: I have been alleging, alluding to the Mitt Romney piece, and I want to dissect this very briefly, and not so much as to go after Romney, but rather what Romney represents. Romney represents the greatest blown opportunity in modern American politics. Romney represents the 25-year-old Republican establishment. He also represents the Never Trumpers, which are part of the out-of-touch Republican and in some cases conservative establishment. They are so out of touch and they're so focused on things that are not relevant today that were 25 or 30 years ago. They have been unable to adapt. They're still...

    ďHoist with his own petardĒ is a phrase taken from Shakespeare and means someone destroyed himself with a weapon (a petard, that is, small bomb) intended for another. President Trump has hoisted the #NeverTrumpers on theirs and is about to do the same thing to the now irremediably lunatic Democrats. Christopher Bedard has done a brilliant job describing the downfall of the #NeverTrump scribblers. Itís worth reading it all, but here are some highlights: The Never Trumpers say they donít recognize a Republican Party where the core tenets are neither free trade nor foreign democracy promotion. But maybe they just...

    Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) needled fellow Republican Sen. Mitt Romney (Utah) in an op-ed in The Washington Post on Friday, arguing that the GOP doesn't need "more distractions." "The mainstream media and Democrats want to further divide Republicans, and now Romney has played right into their hands," Perdue wrote. "Jeff Flake (Ariz.) filled that role before his retirement; the last thing we need now in the Senate is a Jeff Flake on steroids. We certainly donít need more distractions. We need constructive leaders who want to get things done." Perdue invoked Flake, a vocal critic of President Trump who retired...

    Incoming freshman Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) took to the pages of the Washington Post to chastise President Trump for his "unbearable impoliteness. Those of us in public service have a moral obligation to conduct ourselves with the utmost civility, no matter what. Trump's claim that he is only punching back at those who attack him doesn't absolve him of this responsibility." "When I ran for president in 2012 I was vilified by the media and Democrats," Romney recalled. "Lies aimed at besmirching my character were commonplace. Even the moderator at one of my debates with President Obama incorrectly corrected me...

    n a recent op-ed for The Post, ďThe president shapes the public character of the nation. Trumpís character falls short,Ē Mitt Romney made the same mistake that many Republicans did in 2012 ó a mistake that cost him the White House. With his attempted character assassination of the president, a fellow Republican, Romney put self-interest ahead of the larger national interest: conservative Republican governance. The op-ed brought to mind 2012, when many Republicans chose to divide the party by continually bashing each other. Romney eventually discovered that many discouraged GOP voters decided to stay home on Election Day.

    The MSNBC host cited the 25th Amendment, which covers the governmentís ability to remove a sitting president. MSNBC morning show host Joe Scarborough believes Donald Trumpís odd 90-minute press conference Wednesday is evidence enough for the government to invoke the 25th amendment and remove the president from office. On Thursdayís ďMorning Joe,Ē Scarborough questioned Trumpís fitness to be president, pointing to the Wednesday press conference and a Tuesday Washington Post op-ed written by newly seated Utah Sen. Mitt Romney, in which Romney criticizes Trumpís character. If the Cabinet or Congress were acting appropriately, Scarborough said, they already would have taken...

    My opinion of Mitt Romney has changed over the years. When he lost the Republican nomination to John McCain in 2008, I thought he was a classy guy with a future. When he lost the general election to Barack Obama in 2012, I thought he was a good man with a glass jaw. When he repeatedly got on his high horse to sabotage Donald Trumpís presidential campaign in 2016, I thought he was an opportunistic sleaze bag gorging on sour grapes and his own monstrously selfish sense of virtue. But now, after reading his Washington Post jihad against Trump, I...

    Arriving in Washington for his new gig as Utah's junior senator, Mitt Romney jumped right in to revert to form, putting out a Washington Post attack op-ed decrying President Trump's lack of "character" and calling on Republicans to reach across the aisle. Gad, his act is old. Here Trump has given us the best economy in decades, and Mitt has almost nothing to say about it other than that he agrees with it. Trump also never wavered on the appointment of Supreme Court justice Brett Kavanaugh and has fought like a lion to get more constitutionally minded judges appointed. Trump...

    Decepticon caucus senator-elect Mitt Romney (U-DC) appears on CNN to outline why he stands in opposition to President Donald Trump. Understanding the unspoken background color here is important. The Decepticon Caucus in the senate is comprised of senators who represent the interests of Wall Street; and every principle of finance and commerce that intersects with Wall Streetís multinational interests. In essence the Decepticon Caucus is the defensive force protecting the global financial elite; ie. ďThe Big ClubĒ. U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Tom Donohue is the mechanism used by Wall Street multinational banks, corporations and billionaire influence agents to pay...
