Benevolent Misanthrope: Ken S.: I know all you purity people will hate this but I think it is great. If he actually took a moral stand and seriously endorsed Biden I think Utah could flip. Trump is only 3 points ahead of Biden in the latest polling there and most everyone in Utah hates Trump. Mormons, unlike some other forms of Chritianity today actually have an underlying ethical and moral underpinning.

He's not going to endorse Biden.  He's going to challenge Trump at the convention.  Too many high-up Republicans are looking for ways to not vote for Trump - they would sure as shiat vote for Romney, and I will lay good odds there is a huge amount of backroom talk going on about it right now.

It won't work, of course - he'll end up damaging Trump, Trump will get nominated, the Base will vote Trump and some people might write in Romney... but the best he will do is lower Trump's votes in November.  Which is a worthwhile endeavor in and of itself.

Or is he dumb enough to try to run as an Independent?


Maybe your right but I just don't see it. A few maybe could walk away from him before the convention but no one is going to challenge Trump at the convention. If they actually succeeded and deposed Trump 30% of the Republican voters wouldn't show up and it would be a disaster for them in November.

You are probably right about Mitt not endorsing Biden but I could see him doing a non-endorsement  endorsement.

In these troubled times everyone must search their own conscience about how to vote in November. While I disagree with Joe Biden on many areas of policy I know him to be a decent and honourable man who I believe could lead our country forward. I do not believe that President Trump has the character needed to run the monkey cage at the zoo.

Okay, I may have lost Romney's voice towards the end, but you get the idea.

Mittens sure ain't dumb. He's positioning himself to scoop up the remnants once Der Fuhrer drives the true believers off of a cliff.

I don't hate this at all.

Romney may have ethics, he may just be pandering. But part of dragging people kicking and screaming into the century of the fruitbat is allowing them breathing room to fake it till they make it. When the oldest generation is 99% on board or faking it, the youngest generation won't have the hate passed down.

Maybe my grandpa was racist as fark. If he hid is to theoretically satisfy my father to be allowed to see me, mission accomplished.

Yes, kids, once upon a time, there were Republicans who weren't bugfark nuts.

Eh, not so much. We first sent military advisors there in 1947 and our last troops left in 1975. Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, LBJ, Nixon, Ford. Three Democrats, three Republicans. Now, I will agree that our involvement ramped up under LBJ, but Nixon wasn't exactly keen to slow it down. If anything, his choice to spread the war outward to Cambodia and Laos inspired Kent State and a myriad of other protests in this country in 1969, 1970, and 1971.

As a matter of historical "what if", Kennedy discussed pulling our troops out of Vietnam sometime in 1964, if not in late 1963, but, well, he had to go to Texas.

This is certainly a good thing, as it portends shifts toward progressivism.

That said, Romney has massive influence and money, and his response needs to be proportional to that.  Joining a march is great, but that's enough for, like, a casual racist in a small town with no money to do to balance the scales.  Romney has a lot of things to answer for, especially when it comes to communities of color and the queer community, before he's "one of us."

tl;dr:  acknowledge this as a good thing, but don't go sucking his dick just yet.

Ken S.: Remember how conservative Utah is when you look at those numbers. Character does matter to them.

Character doesn't matter that much--niceness does.  Mormons are racist, queerphobic, megalomaniacal monsters; they're just super polite about it.

scottydoesntknow: Mittens was the only "republican" willing to vote to have Trump removed. He's essentially an independent now. Only reason he hasn't been excommunicated by them is because he holds a lot of sway in Utah.


I think ol' Mittens has been positioning himself to become the leader of whatever life raft of sanity escapes the Republican ship when it finally goes down, assuming the ship can't be saved by jettisoning the dead weight. Cynical calculation or not, we need someone to do that if we're going to make it through this intact as a country, and I'm not seeing much in the way of other good candidates out there for the job, not since McCain died and the rest with his ethics were primaried out by hardliners.

Worth considering that those that disapprove of how he's doing could also include people who don't think he's being tyrannical enough and are simply disappointed that he hasn't ordered carpet bombing of major city centers yet.


As for MItt, Let's see how his actions over the next few weeks stack up. I'm far too cynical to take public displays at face value...

It's no longer Republican v Democrat. It's America v Trumpland. I'll never forget how most of the Republican Party sold their soul for Trump, and will be happy to remind them, but anyone willing to publicly break away and sway a few more votes is someone I'll take right now. My enemy's enemy, and Trump has made a lot of enemies among the Republican Party.

The W supporters who used to accuse you of hating god, the country and your mother any time you disagreed with them?  They almost immediately rebranded themselves as tea partiers and acted as if they'd opposed those ideas the entire time.

The Trump fans are going to try to pull something similar.  I just hope they don't get away with it, as they did in 2010, and come back into power almost immediately.

As a Christian, I never dreamed that I would live long enough to see evangelicals marching for racial justice and to end police brutality. I feel a little bad for referring to evangelicals as KKKristians for the last few years. I guess I'd better be mindful of my own eye before I worry about the mote in somebody else's eye.

Jennifer Rubin, MSNBC's favorite "Never Trumper", wanted arbitrary bans against Muslims long before Trump got the taste for them. In 2011, after the terrorist attacks in Norway, she wanted an immediate ban against Muslims. And even after it was discovered that the perp was an anti-Muslim Christian extremist, she still wanted a ban against Muslims because reasons.

"Never Trump" conservatives are nobody's allies. They're people who want all the shiat Trump brings to the table, but don't want the "Trump" label attached to it.

They even let me pay in bitcoins.

Kick The Chair: Are Mormons the ones who's God changed his mind about black people?

Church leaders taught that these restrictions were commanded by God. In 1978, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve, led by church president Spencer W. Kimball, declared they had received a revelation that the time had come to end these restrictions. After this revelation, people of African descent could hold priesthood offices and could be granted temple admittance.


I don't know what the Mormons would call that.

In our denomination it is referred to as increasing light (as in the light of God/Jesus).
We believe  that everyone has the light of God within them and that everyone is capable of being a conduit for that light.
Many of us (including me) also believe that the capacity to receive and share the light of God increases and improves with each generation as humanity grows.

iheartscotch: Mittens sure ain't dumb. He's positioning himself to scoop up the remnants once Der Fuhrer drives the true believers off of a cliff.


I think he's envisioning a scenario where he could gain a lot of power after November:

D's take WH AND Senate: McConnell takes the fall, he steps in as minority leader in the Senate.
D's take WH but not the Senate: Works out a deal with the D senators to become majority leader. D's all vote for Romney + a few embarrassed R's + Romney.

R's may fall in line publicly, but in private, they will not hesitate to shiv their colleagues to gain power for themselves. Right now, they're all toadying up to McConnell, but when they get out of power, McConnell's aura will immediately disappear, and it will be every man for himself. Relative to all other R's, Romney will come out looking the cleanest and won't have the stain of Trump all over him. Plus, it's not like UT is going to throw him out - they are LDS before R's. R's could call him a RINO all day, but as long as UT likes him, it doesn't matter. Lastly, and I think someone covered this, R's would be wise not to crap on Romney too much: going back to the LDS thing, if they take too many digs at their guy, they may decide to vote for Biden out of disgust.

It's still gonna take some work to get Biden to work on n, but it could happen. Mormons are the hardest religion to fit into a box, and they really didn't like Trump. Sure, he won, but McMullin got a ton of votes... They didn't like his adultery, they didn't like the way he talks about others, they didn't like his foul mouth, they didn't like the things he's done, and they really didn't like the anti-immigrant thing.

Of course, they didn't want to elect "that woman", so they held their noses and voted for Donnie. Or threw their vote away on McMullin.

Now, let's fast forward 3 1/2 years. All of those things they didn't like about Trump? They seem positively quaint in comparison to now. He turned pretty much everything they didn't like up to 11, and shows no sign of letting up. Utah has weathered the current financial crisis relatively well, but it's not thanks to ANYTHING Trump did, and most people here know that.

I'm not too confident that it will happen, as red as the state is overall, but I wouldn't exactly be surprised if Biden took it. It would make me feel a lot better about this state's future, because right now, it seems like the most psychotic Republicans are almost all they elect. Romney hasn't been bad, and Huntsman was great. We have mayors and such, but state legislators are somehow the most rabid assholes in the state. Mike Lee, Orrin Hatch, Jason Chaffetz, Mia Love, they've all darkened our doorstep here in just the last few years. Maybe if the state votes Biden and the world doesn't end, they will at least elect more Huntsmans and less Lees, Loves, and Chaffetzes.

One can always dream, right?

schnee: Yeah. Maybe he'd have more impact if he stopped caucusing with MoscowMitch


And therein lies the problem with the Republican party recruiting Rmoney to replace Bunker biatch on the GOP ticket.

Rmoney may have stood up to him, but no one else in the party did (except Amash). So, if the GOP selects Rmoney as their nominee, will the other Republicans suddenly no longer be beholden to whatever powers compromised them into obeying Bunker biatch at every turn? Will they suddenly be as free from blackmail as Blanche is now that he's out of the closet?

I don't think voters are going to forget how compliant every Republican was/is.

Nor are the people who hold the kompromat on every Republican.
