Skip to comments.With Romney's Comeback Rumors Swirling, Former Hillary Clinton Staffers Blow A Gasket
Posted on 01/09/2018 10:24:54 PM PST by Oshkalaboomboom
Well, 2018 brought us some Senate news for the upcoming midterm elections. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) decided to not run for an eighth term in the Senate. The road is clear for Mitt Romney who is a heavy favorite to replace Hatch. Also, how will the Trump White House feel about a vocal Never Trump politician catching a second wind in public life? Yet, for now, its what if Romney runs, he hasnt made it official yet. If he does, hes pretty much guaranteed to win the election. As we all speculate, Hillary Clintons former campaign staff sort of blew a gasket. Romney can have another bite at the applehes a two-time presidential loser, like Clinton, but shes the one that has to remove herself from politics. Ugh! Its the patriarchy at work (via Free Beacon):
Clinton alumni and boosterslike former press secretary Brian Fallon, Nick Morrow, and Eric Boehlertdecried what they viewed as a double standard for Clinton and Romney.
Fallon wrote that Romney should focus on knitting rather than politics, referencing a Vanity Fair video last month in which writers jokingly offered New Year's resolutions for Clinton, including one female writer who suggested she could take up knitting.
Though it was part of a series of videos mocking other politicians and Vanity Fair is an openly left-leaning publication, Clinton backers and other liberals ripped the joke as sexist, and the magazine subsequently apologized.
Mitt Romney lost and the media is begging him to run for office. Hillary Clinton won the popular vote and they told her to take up knitting. Sexism at work.

Strange how losing male presidential candidate Mitt Romney is being immediately discussed as a replacement for Orrin Hatchs senate seat and isnt being told to take up knitting!

Isn't Mitt Romney supposed to take up knitting and go away forever? Or is that just Dem women?

Mitt Romney may run for Senate? I thought failed presidential candidates were only allowed to take up knitting.

Yeah, whatever, guysHillary has a book that torched pretty much everyone, blaming Joe Biden, Obama, the FBI, James Comey, the media, Bernie Sanders, the Democratic National Committee, and the Russians for costing her the 2016 election. She has a super PAC that fights the Trump agenda and is projected to give monetary support to 2018 candidates as well. Maybe the bitterness of losing in 2016 still stings with the alumni of the Hillary campaign. I guess she could run for something else if she wanted to, but she said shes done with running for office. Yet, plans can change. Oprah Winfrey said she was a no-go on 2020, nowshes reportedly mulling a run. I hope Hillary goes away, but she is useful as a GOP punching bag. As the Clinton camp whines, Romney could become Utahs next senator.
Prop up Orrin, anybody but the Bishop.
For all of his faults, Mitt didn’t have to be told to go away.
Of course the media want him to run (and lose!) again. That's why they encouraged him in the first place.
Run for the Senate, if you wish, Mitt. But please don't get any ideas about running for President again. Three strikes, you're out.
Mitt should stick to knitting mittens.
How can a man that lives in Massachusetts run for Senator in Utah?
It's been years since Mittens lived in Massachusetts.
In any case, even before he became Governor of Massachusetts, the question was seriously raised, in the light of his role in the Salt Lake City Olympics (2002), should he go for governor of Massachusetts or of Utah?
If he had chosen the latter, he probably would have won, and he would not have had RomneyCare around his neck in 2012.
Of course, Mittens being Mittens, he still would mostly likely have found a way to lose!
Really? I just read where Romney quietly changed his address.
for one thing Romney doesn’t have 40 years of countless scandals and dead bodies trailing him...
He had more class than to hang around after the election like Obama and Hillary did. We just wish Mitt would stay away.
Can’t use the word”class” in the same sentence with Hillary or Obama....
Romney began RomneyCARE after his company raped
other companies and through the people to the ground.
RomneyCARE was made to shut the people, thrown from
the raped companies, UP.
Mr. ROmneyCARE should leave America and go
back to Mexico with his polygamous, socialist agenda.
Some people just never go away.
If Hillary wants to run for Senate again, be my guest. Maybe she can move to another state where she has a good shot to win.
Interesting post on vote counting fraud. You going to make it a stand-alone thread?
I agree...i live in MA
I can only imagine how much mandatory Medicaid is costing this state.
