  • OPINION: New Year, New Congress, Same Old Romney

    Ronald Reagan’s “Eleventh Commandment” reads, “Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.” The former president’s sage advice went ignored once again last week by the freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney when he published his anti-Trump oped in The Washington Post. Romney didn’t have a problem accepting Donald Trump’s endorsement for Senate to get the job in the first place, but hey, that’s politics, right? Like most positions Mitt Romney takes, I guess he was against Trump before he was okay with Trump before he was against him again. Romney lamented in his article that the president hasn’t changed his...

    Massachusetts government forces health insurance companies to pay for drug that costs $24,000 a year so gay men won’t have to wear condoms I’m a libertarian. 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. The Centers for Disease Control states:When used the right way every time, condoms are highly...

    The first public thing Mitt Romney did in the year 2019 -- on Jan. 1 -- was publish an attack on President Trump in the Washington Post, which, as we know, has not lacked for attacks on Trump. He did not even wait until being sworn in, two days later. I campaigned for Sen. Mitt Romney when he ran for president, including a closed-door meeting with him to raise funds among wealthy Los Angeles Republicans. As it turns out, I worked to elect a somewhat foolish man with few identifiable convictions. (For the record, I would do so again, since...

    Two days before he was sworn in as Utah's junior U.S. senator, Mitt Romney published an op-ed in The Washington Post, publicly broadcasting, once again, his disapproval of President Donald Trump. Disappointing, but not surprising. Something seems to compel those in the never-Trump crowd not only to perpetually obsess over Trump but also to constantly remind us of their profound distaste for him -- lest it escape our top-of-mind awareness. A few things popped out at me when I read Romney's piece -- apart from his flagrant hypocrisy in reigniting his public relations campaign against Trump after abandoning it when...

    Okay, was I shocked that Mitt Romney came out with his January 1st OPED in the Washington Post bashing the President? No…I just thought it would have been a few weeks before he went all Jeff Flake 2.0 against the President. Geez Mitt, we don’t need any more surrender monkeys! So Mitt, how do you want us to remember you, Mitt “Benedict Arnold” Romney or Mitt “Neville Chamberlain” Romney…Because right now, most real Americans that watched you run and fail for president don’t see this as your brightest moment, they see this as your bitter sour grapes moment, face...

    Just like in 2012, Mitt Romney folds like a cheap suit. – Maybe it was the backlash of outrage emanating from the GOP base in the wake of his idiotic opinion piece in the Washington Post; perhaps it was President Trump’s refusal to take his bait; or maybe it was the Twitter tongue-lashing he received from his own niece who chairs the Republican National Committee: Ronna McDaniel ✔ @GOPChairwoman POTUS is attacked and obstructed by the MSM media and Democrats 24/7. For an incoming Republican freshman senator to attack @realdonaldtrump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and...

    Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said Wednesday that he hasn't decided whether to endorse President Trump in the 2020 election, but ruled out mounting a primary challenge himself. "I haven’t decided who I’m going to endorse in 2020. I’m going to see what the alternatives are," Romney said in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper. "I think it’s early to make that decision, and I want to see what the alternatives are," he continued. "I pointed out there are places [Trump and I] agree on a whole series of policy fronts, but there are places that I think the president can,...

    [PHOTO] Well. The failed, slime-master, Little Mittens “Kitten” Romney, forces himself down our media-guzzling throats once again. Romney is in the news bigly today, trying to tear down President Trump while simultaneously promoting his own self. This is actually a non-agenda promo, because the little slut just says whatevever he thinks will make Trump bleed—whatever twisted imaginings pop into his swamp-soggy skull. By spewing whatever malicious, made-up, liar-lies manifest themselves inside his pumpkin, Romney scavenges whatever gleeful attention he can suck from the mad-dog, anti-Trump, commie media. Big Leftist Media and its saber-toothed enablers are Ever Ready to jump on...

    President Trump’s 2020 campaign manager on Tuesday fired back after Sen.-elect Mitt Romney (R-Utah) wrote a searing op-ed criticizing the president's character. In a tweet, Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale invoked Romney’s failed 2012 presidential bid, accusing the incoming senator of lacking the ability "to save this nation." “The truth is @MittRomney lacked the ability to save this nation. @realDonaldTrump has saved it,” Parscale wrote on Twitter. “Jealously is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it. So sad, I wish everyone had the courage @realDonaldTrump had.” Parscale’s reaction came shortly after Romney penned a Washington Post...

    Days before he officially becomes a U.S. senator, Mitt Romney took to the Washington Post to fire a shot across President Trump’s bow, saying Mr. Trump had made a “deep descent” in December and is hurting the national character. In an op-ed column published online Tuesday evening, Mr. Romney, now a Republican senator-elect for Utah, came down hardest on recent moves in foreign policy and Cabinet positions related to that. “After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the...

    A conservative-leaning watchdog group says House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are the biggest congressional scofflaws of 2018, for their anemic handling of the settlement slush fund that used an unlimited pot of taxpayer money to pay off congressional staff in exchange for signing legal papers barring them from taking public their claims of sexual harassment and other mistreatment by their congressional employers. Congress members briefly claimed to be shocked at the victim-gagging slush fund when the media reported on it, but in reality, members of both parties in the House’s leadership oversaw it for years....

    “CONSERVATIVE” OPPOSITION TO ENDING OBAMACARE MAKES ME SICK A Howard Kurtz article on Fox News this morning, Why Some Conservatives Don’t Like the Ruling Against Obamacare,” is mis-titled. There should have been quote marks around the word “conservative.” No self-respecting conservative would ever oppose a ruling striking down Obamacare, as has just happened when a federal judge in Texas ruled the law unconstitutional. Think about it—how is it possible for a law MANDATING that you buy a product be Constitutional? Medicine is a product. The practice of medicine is a commercial service. That’s free enterprise.

    Third Way: As Democratic candidates line up to vie for their party’s 2020 presidential nomination, a #NeverTrump GOP activist and establishment lobbyist is courting the like-minded to form a coalition around former Vice President Joe Biden and U.S. Sen. Mitt Romey, RINO-Utah, who has lost two bids for the presidency. Juleanna Glover, during a day-long meeting of anti-Trumpers that getting to the “path to 270 [electoral votes] might not be that hard,” Breitbart News reports. Glover’s plot is for Biden to pick Romney as his running mate and for them to run on a one-term party unity ticket pledging to...
  • Poll: Six in 10 say higher health care premiums are 'major concern'

    Six in 10 U.S. adults say they worry about having to pay higher health insurance premiums, according to a Gallup poll. The poll finds that 61 percent say having their premiums raised is a “major concern,” higher than several other health care-related problems. Democrats focused heavily on health care on the midterm campaign trail and won back the House majority while saying they would preserve protections for people with pre-existing conditions. The poll, though, finds that premiums are an even bigger concern for the public than pre-existing conditions. Forty-two percent of adults said being denied coverage for a pre-existing condition...

    Mitt Romney is finally heading to Washington. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee won a seat in the Senate for his adopted home state of Utah in Tuesday's election. "I will be only one of a hundred United States senators, but I believe that one person doing the right thing at the right time can have a lasting impact," Romney said on Election Night. For Romney, it was the right time. In 2012, he waged a hard-fought presidential campaign, complete with an endorsement from then-businessman Donald Trump. After losing to President Barack Obama, Romney stepped out of the public eye. Four...

    Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney tore into President Trump on Monday after Trump challenged the intelligence community's assessment that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, calling Trump's behavior "disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles." Romney's comments came hours after Trump held a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in which he questioned whether Russia was behind efforts to meddle in the 2016 election. "President Trump's decision to side with Putin over American intelligence agencies is disgraceful and detrimental to our democratic principles," Romney, who is running for Senate in Utah, said in a...

    Mitt Romney is mapping out plans to become a major player in the Senate — positioning himself to be the spokesman of a listless Republican Party establishment that’s been steamrolled by President Donald Trump. The failed presidential candidate turned Utah Senate hopeful has made it clear to senior party officials that he intends to make a splash with his all-but-certain arrival on Capitol Hill next year, according to nearly a dozen senators, major party donors and confidants who’ve spoken with him.
