Mitt Romney’s Sanctimonious Nonsense Helps No One

We were really hoping for the best when we heard that Mitt Romney was stepping up to run for the Utah seat vacated by retiring Senator Orrin Hatch. Romney hasn’t been completely silent when it comes to his once-vicious criticism of Donald Trump, but he’s definitely toned it down since the 2016 election. Hell, he even auditioned for the role of Secretary of State under his former enemy – how peeved could he still be that Trump succeeded where he (miserably) failed? And since he mostly kept criticism of Trump under his hat during his Senate campaign, we thought surely he’d put all of this nonsense behind him.

Well, turns out not.

In a scathing op-ed for the Washington Post on Wednesday, Romney excoriated President Trump for lacking the “character” to properly lead the nation.

“To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation,” Romney asserts. “A president should unite us and inspire us to follow ‘our better angels.’ A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect. As a nation, we have been blessed with presidents who have called on the greatness of the American spirit. With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring.”

Yeah, and so what’s the solution, Mitt? Are you going to run against him in the primaries? That should make your loss to Obama look like an all-time great victory.

In a tweet responding to the insulting op-ed, Trump was surprisingly restrained.

“Here we go with Mitt Romney, but so fast! Question will be, is he a Flake?” Trump wrote. “I hope not. Would much prefer that Mitt focus on Border Security and so many other things where he can be helpful. I won big, and he didn’t. He should be happy for all Republicans. Be a TEAM player & WIN!”

Be a team player and win.

Exactly.

We’re all (ostensibly?) on the same side here, Mitt. There IS no NeverTrump Republican side, counter to what you may believe. There are people fighting to remake this country in a conservative, America First way, and then there is everyone else. It doesn’t really matter if your name is Nancy Pelosi, Paul Krugman, Nicolle Wallace, or Bill Kristol, you are either playing for the left’s team or you are on Team Trump.

Which is it going to be, Mitt? Make your choice and make it now.

What do you think?

  1. mitt romney is a member of the mormon church..where lots of inbreeding has gone on since the church started….mitt is the results of type inbreading..fathers breading daughters brothers and sisters..trump needs bring one of the guys from the caravan up to wdc and get him to remove mitt romney

  2. I think he is a pompous ass and that is one of reasons he lost out to Obama. He thought he was wonderful and as soon as Barack challenged him he folded. I cannot imagine why Utah elected this creep!

    • There are many decent and GOD loving “Latter Day Saints”; but some , like Mitt and others use the congregation to foment evil as with the socialists movement, sad, very

  3. “To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation,” Romney asserts.
    No, the fact is that the public character of the nation is represented in the people selected to occupy the presidency. As a Mormon, rejected in the selection process for the presidency, Romney should be acutely aware of this fact.
    The line of critical distinction with respect to the character of the presidency—which still represents the character of the public—is found in the year 1960. What resulted from that election not only represented the changing character of the nation, but deeply affected, formatively, that character. In general, the concept of discipline and personal responsibility with respect to morality and ethics was lost in the cultural and sexual revolutions of the 1960s, the rebellion against authority, which took many forms from protests and demonstrations to avoidance of the draft to serve in the military, to outright militant actions and conflict with and against police and national guardsmen. Increasingly, there has been a trend of progressive disrespect for the office of the president and the person who occupies that office, often initiated and promoted by the media and the press, the “means” of the public character, collective hypocrisy, justifying opposition to political policies which, objectively, are beneficial for all the people. It is the general confusion and dysfunction with respect to morality and ethics, politically represented by pandering, partisan-political compromisers, which are no less purposeless and offensive than the distractions of presidential behavior. The 15 or 16 former republican candidates for president in 2016, if representative of political-establishmentarian values and higher character, were not able to convince the primary electorate that those values and higher character were either representative or
    sufficient to confront and deal with the concerns and issues which were debated before the nominating convention.
    It is significant that government is shut down because of the disagreement over the status quo of “same old, same old, government,” funding itself, and the resolution of the immigration, illegal alien and border security problems which require definitive, permanent solutions.

    • Mormons are COMMUNISTS…….always have been……….

      AND YES……..they’ve been IN-BREEDING for a long time…….
      EXPLAINS A LOT ABOUT ROMNEY………

      • Lance, you know so much about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that just isn’t correct. Obviously, you aren’t entitled to make declarations like that unless you have witnessed it, because that kind of behavior is grounds for excommunication. We joined the Church in 1971, having been brought up in another Christian denomination, and as adults we investigated, read numerous books written by members of the Church and some by outsiders who proved they knew nothing correct about the Church. Mitt is not the result of inbreeding, but of privilege of being important in his own mind. To the rest of us, he was just another member. He obviously has forgotten the most important thing about faith…you can’t build faith in others unless you live your faith. Our faith tells us not to judge others unless we want to be judged. Mitt surprised us by his lack of civility regarding President Trump, whom we are pleased with, despite his slight short-comings (Twitter, I’ll admit is one of his foibles, but I prefer he keeps doing it to rile up the left.) We want President Trump to succeed and be re-elected in 2020. Perhaps by that time, Mitt may grow to admire Trump’s tenacity in getting things done that the majority of the people need to happen: Border wall, stopping Planned Parenthood from murdering babies, and a host of other his other good ideas.) Please be so kind as not to speak about that which you know nothing about…heresay is all you can claim.

  4. Mitt was not even sworn in as a junior senator before he made a fool of himself. How did Utah elect a Jeff Flake as a senator??? Mitt needs to grow up and realize what a bafoon he made of himself. He was all to happy to have President Trump support him in the senate race only to stab him in the back??? Go figure! Mitt your job is to represent Utah, our country, America and the constitution, not yourself!!

  5. I am sure people in Utah who voted for him are sorry he is in DC. He is crazy and a disgrace to republicans! He needs to just shut up and back our president!

    • Their voting for ROMNEY just shows how stupid MORMONS are………..
      of course, COMMUNISM is made up of nothing but ‘STUPID’ beings………

      AND IT’S A WIDELY KNOW FACT…….’STUPID’ CANNOT BE FIXED…………

      • I am amazed at how uneducated you are about the so-called “Mormons.” Yes, growing up we heard about that “cult” and it wasn’t until we were young adults with a young child that we were transferred to an area where there was a plethora of Mormons (the correct name for the Church is “the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” and we abhore communism. We believe in each person’s ability to make their own choices, live their own lives so long as they don’t harm others in any way, live clean and moral lives, be the spouse of only one partner of the opposite sex, and raise children to be honest by setting good examples. We take our religion seriously…you certainly wouldn’t like it if we put you down for another religion or none at all, would you?

  6. Mr. Romney is way too familiar in my life….I was born and bred in Michigan and; unfortunately am extremely familiar with ol’ man Romney, Mitt’s father and how he originally did all he could to bring the State of Michigan fall on its knees way before Detroit had their temporary downfall.
    Unfortunately, Mitt was “visiting” Massachusetts for a spell…naturally, I live in Massachusetts!
    You can tell he is/was a “hatchet man” and the route he took to bring down Massachusetts; along with his “Health Care System”.
    Mr. Romney is nothing more than a snake-in-the-grass for all the people he has screwed over the years; along with his “high-end attitude”…
    If some citizens think that President Trump is a controversy….well; I can’t imagine Romney doing anything but claiming he’s a Mormon and further discombobulate our Nation!
    Say what you will…I wouldn’t even attempt to trust Romney…at least President Trump has done incredible accomplishments, (against all odds) and makes promises to the American People and
    does his utmost to make those promises materialize – no matter who’s against him!!

  7. Mittens has shown once again what a vindictive, spineless loser he really is. Voters in Utah must really be at a loss for good candidates to elect this gasbag

  8. Mitt Romney now is the public face of the Mormon Church. He runs as a Republican, then immediately helps the Democrats and the Media and the Washington Elite to ruin President Trump and force him out of office. MORMONS ARE DESPICABLE. Never vote for mormons again because of Romney’s lack of character and honesty to the voters of Utah. America wants the Washington Elite out of our government and ruling over us. Romney is the very definition of a RINO (Republican In Name Only) and all RINOs are Washington Elite and American voters want you all out of our government. I’m sure most Mormons now want you out of office also Mitt Romney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You are an embarrassment to their faith.

  9. This has to be the stupidest comment I have ever seen. I am not a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints and what you say is not true as it is illegal and has been for years. I was angered by Romney’s comments about the President also but it has absolutely nothing to do with his religious faith or practices.

  10. I can not believe him ! I do not believe his hateful ways, people that live in glass houses should not throw stones. I am sure his church and the state of Utah are unhappy with his hateful ways .He is not much of a Christian or a American

  11. I have a mormon relative and I have RESEARCHED IT ALOT.
    I PRAY FOR THEM AS THEY ARE IN A VERY FALSE CULT.
    it seems MORMONS are so pious & SO CERTAIN THEY ARE THE ONLY
    ONES GOING TO HEAVEN.JESUS is God in the flesh & MORMONS do not
    Believe JESUS is God. But mormons believe He is just their good profit.
    & they believe so many FALSE teachings that are against GOD. Its so sad
    AS most of them ARE good people but the RELIGION itself is totally FALSE. BELIEF
    In Jesus And WHO HE REALLY IS is the only way anyone can enter ETERNITY WITH Him.

  12. You know what ? There’s liable to be a rotting apple in every bushel….”twit” Romney is one.
    The families of the LDS I grew up around – were composed of people that were (IMHO) better people than I.
    Me ? A scrappy, carousing lil Catholic!

  13. I am very disappointed in Mitt Romney as a Republican and as a human being. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he is also disappointing!

  14. Web search this to prove this is truthful.
    Romney is a proven criminal of the NWO and UN who want Control of USA and the world.
    . He demonstrated his hate for Biblical Christians and our Republic’s Constitution.
    . He laundered Iran-Contra money from Mena AR airport Drug Drops (Gov. Clinton and CIA Director Bush) and “Bribed” legislative into silence by having them invest (with huge gains) in Bain Capital (Panama) and they blamed Noriega as the money laundering drug runner with riots in Panama.
    . He set-up THE ORIGINAL Obama Care as Mass Governor.
    . Why would any American Patriot even want him anywhere … not alone as a legislator?

  15. A loser, A malcontent, A ill mannered Gentleman, A naive man old enough to not be, A major phony, A high and mighty person with a” can’t get it personality.” A man who will take crumbs with zero pride, A Man needing public approval regardless of integrity. Who is he?? Clues
    Ut. Ma. wants to go to D.c.
    And remember never turn your back on him as you figure who he is, so easily.

  16. No one pays any attention to Romney except they very much dislike him! I will give Trump this. He gave him a change but the dude sprays hate every time he opens his mouth and he does not get it that Americans except for the trolls and roaches love President Trump andback him totally and the Hags like Polise can pretend all day long but the truth is all she is doing is turning all her imported votes against her party because of her actions! So you go ahead you old nag and see where it gets you!

  17. Mitt, affectionately known by his liberal fans for being unable to compete for the minds and hearts of reasonable minded voters in his race for the White House was also referred to as “dandy boy” who dressed in a blue blazer, a tieless open white dress shirt without tie, in denim trousers appearing on the campaign trail daily as a fungible likeness of present day liberals and editors of an official speech volume of correct speech and thought.

  18. Mitt is a LOOSER that thinks if he follows the money he wins BUT if he follows what he thinks is the WINNER he will win BUT you can’t have both & still win. POOR POOR MIT WHAT TO DO ???

  19. Senator Romney had his opportunity to blow Obama out of the water
    on the 2nd debate and he blew it, indecisive? I would say yes
    and he wants to be president and lead the Nation, where? to the final abyss?
