If you're referring to the vote after the impeachment, he went 1 for 2 and only because enough of Utah hates Donald. It wasn't a principled stance against the corruption in his own party; it was a calculated guess that the big orange dumbass won't be a factor in Romney's 2022 re-election prospects.

I appreciate the fact that he had something on his mind besides party, but that something wasn't country or government or sanity or humanity. It was Mittens.

What is this


Mitt Romney after a press conference in September 2012 following the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi by Islamic militants that resulted in the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. It was an election year and Romney was running for POTUS so he immediately called a press conference after the attack to severely criticize Obama for being soft on America's enemies, lack security, weak foreign policy, etc., etc. After his performance, the press conference ends and Romney turns around and walks off the stage with the biggest "I really nailed that farker!" smirk in the universe.

Only after Donnie didn't let him in the club.

There is literally no example of a Republican doing the right thing before they lost the chance to get in on the action.


I can cut a lot of people a slack for taking interviews for Secretary of This or Senior Advisor for That during the transition, or taking the job through the first year or two.  In any other administration, these positions have the influence to guide the office in the direction that one feels is right. Even if the president himself is a dullard or reckless, advisors can do more good from the inside than they can by biatching about it from the outside. Kelly, Mattis, McMaster all were trying, in my opinion, to keep the whole thing from going off the rails - and who knows: maybe without their influence in the early days, the flailing mess we have now might have appeared in year 1 and we'd be in a shooting war with Germany by now.

So yeah, Romney was looking for a job during the transition.  I can fault the guy for a lot of things, but being willing to serve even a repugnant president when there could be an expectation (or at least hope) of moderating some of the more odious tendencies is not one of them.

But fark anyone who has boarded that ship in the last two years, after it was clear that expert advice is neither sought nor accepted and that anyone with a backbone rapidly irritates the president and is quickly shown the door.

Trump maintains a 90%+ approval rating among Republicans.   They aren't going to dump him under any circumstance, and any Republican that tried would find themselves losing a primary fight with a "real conservative."

The only reason RMoney gets away with it is because he is from Utah, and Mormons, being actually true to their faith, find Trump kind of repugnant.

Mitt isn't looking to be the next GOP nom.  I think he knows the GOP is as dead as last week's fish.  I think he is looking to lead up a new party of "not insane, actual conservatives."

4 1/2 months from now when it's time to start talking about prosecuting the criminals and traitors for their crimes and treason:

"Well oh gosh, shouldn't we let the past be the past? We need to move forward... We're facing a massive pandemic, the American people don't have time for recriminations... we don't have time for the next President to attack his predecessor using the legal system... Why is Biden being so petty?..."

That said, I actually would agree that Biden needs to be clear that there is a legal wall between the President and the Justice Department, and push for laws to cement that in the US Code, because the type of crimes committed by Barr can never be allowed to happen again.

Whereafter Biden's AG, upon a thorough review, legitimately concludes that all these motherfarkers are guilty of too many crimes to count and Biden can't stop them from having all the criminals indicted and jailed.

Yes, he is probably thinking about 2024 or 2028, and he knows that between now and then the alt-right idiots that Trumputin has empowered are going to basically get purged across all of Washington.  So by throwing in against him now, he's setting himself up as the party savior by getting them back to their roots of simple greed.

It's like this: In ye Olden Tymes, the Republicans were basically the Ferringi.  They cared about big business, they cared about Wall Street, they cared about sucking up to the rich.  Yes, they had their closet racists but that still doesn't change the fact that their three primary concerns were money, money and money.

Trumputin is the pinnacle of what they've devolved into, which is to say Species 8472.  Their constituents are no longer Wall Street, they're racists, hate-mongers and science deniers who's only unifying factor is a blind hatred of everyone who doesn't look, think and act like themselves.  Monsters deluded into thinking that they're somehow genetically superior to everyone else despite having the IQ of cabbage.

The point being is this: You can at least reason with the Ferringi.  If you went up to Quark and pointed out that solar power is more cost-effective in the long because it doesn't require fuel he'll say "Stop - you had me at 'more cost-effective'"  If you we told the Ferringi that America's minorities will someday be the majority they'll start thinking up new marketing campaigns to sell them stuff, because in the end they don't care about the color of someone's skin so long as they've got money in their wallet to spend.

So Romney's plan is sound and frankly I wish him luck.  Not in winning elections, but in pulling off his Stauffenberg maneuver.  I'd like to see him reform the GOP back into a foe that sits across the chess table and thinks about their next move rather than the syphilitic, tantrum throwing crybabies than have rallied around the king of syphilitic, tantrum throwing crybabies we have today.

Why do I want this?  You want to know why so many Democratic politicians have become Wall Street puppets?  Because the Republicans have been abandoning Wall Street in favor of rural racists.  Let those Mammon worshipers in the GOP have Wall Street back and maybe the Democrats will become the party of the little guy again, eh?  I'm tired of seeing Democrats slacking off just because Trumputin has lowered the bar so much that, well, how many of us have vowed to "Hold our nose and vote for Biden" in November and ask yourself, seriously, how many of us would still be saying that if his opponent wasn't that piece of orange slug jizz?  So yeah, I want to see the Democrats have a worthwhile opponent to fight again, because that's what will keep them sharp and keep them fighting.

Ross Perot's candidacy had no effect on the outcome of the 1992 election.  It's Republican revisionist history and an attempt to delegitimize Clinton's presidency.  Perot drew from both parties equally.  Exit polls showed Clinton would have won if Perot wasn't in the race.  Clinton was also way ahead in the polls when Perot had dropped out of the race for a time.

Jgok: Mister Buttons: It was a dick move, and I forget what point he even even tried to make to earn the smugness.

But, if every smirk or eyeroll I have done in my life was recorded... It would be a bad read.

That was the start of the Benghazi roadshow. That shot was taken as he left the podium at his presser the day after the Benghazi attack.

The bodies were barely cold when he did that. The ambassador's family hadn't even been notified of his death yet before he went and announced it to the world.

This was supposed to be a memorial for the fallen, not a political campaign event. And it wasn't the only time he did that. Several times during his speech you can see him trying ― and, multiple times, failing ― to keep from smiling or smirking as he made political jabs at Obama.

Then, when he turned around and thinking that his face was out of view of the cameras (not realizing that there were some behind him), he gave that smirk, and it wasn't a brief smirk either. It was sustained. For at least two seconds.

Actually, he didn't even wait to turn around away from the cameras he knew about before doing that:

You'd be surprised I think.

These pieces of shiat KNOW we don't live in an outright autocracy that lacks any pretense of the rule of law a la Russia (no seriously - much of the world suffers under malgovernment that makes the most criminal and corrupt things the Trumpist traitors have done look like a boring tuesday).

But it's also true that a huge fraction of what they've gotten away with is because it wasn't explicitly legally codified... because there had never been a need to.

Like 9/11, and like traitor Oliver North getting away, it represents a one-time exploit that will be legally closed up.

- Stop caucusing with the GOP. Doens't mean he caucuses with the Dems, just don't
- Oppose anything proposed by Trump and his administration on the principle of spoiled fruits.. This includes Judicial nominees
- Go a step further and caucus with the Democrats.
- Avail himself every Sunday for the circuit to oppose Trump
- Support candidates who oppose those that enable Trump (in both chambers) that would necessarily mean endorsing democrats
- Endorse Joe Biden.
- Every time Trump lies or otherwise acts unpresidential in a tweet or other relase, tweet about it in response.
- Call for resignation of sitting senators and representaives who enable trump
- Challenge  other "moderates" like Collins and Murkowski to oppose Trump more fully

ViolentEastCoastCity: Rent Party: North_Central_Positronics: Ken S.: I will be impressed with him only if he heartily endorses Biden.

Mittens knows he's the shoe-in Republican candidate if the rest of the party somehow grows a set and dumps Dump before the election.   With everything that's happened in the last 4 years, I wouldn't even call this scenario a long shot.

Trump maintains a 90%+ approval rating among Republicans.   They aren't going to dump him under any circumstance, and any Republican that tried would find themselves losing a primary fight with a "real conservative."

The only reason RMoney gets away with it is because he is from Utah, and Mormons, being actually true to their faith, find Trump kind of repugnant.

Mitt isn't looking to be the next GOP nom.  I think he knows the GOP is as dead as last week's fish.  I think he is looking to lead up a new party of "not insane, actual conservatives."

He drove around with his dog on the car roof, and wears magical underwear.  That's the NOT insane conservatives??


sadly, yes.

He doesn't need to be involved in such a campaign.  Ross Perot wasn't in 1992.

It might only mean so much - but he can honestly say he's the only Republican that voted for impeachment, and he's called Trump out as unfit multiple times. When the time came, instead of justifying POTUS' Lafayette Square clearing, Romney marched with supporters in support of BLM. Publicly defying the "conservative" grift machine and POTUS at the same time.

I don't have a lot of love for Mitt Romney, but credit where credit is due - in what small crevasses it has receded into. But also, yeah, kind of undercuts himself if he won't endorse Biden over Trump in the election once Trump is sealed as the GOP nominee (which he will be shortly). If/when Trump is officially the GOP nominee and Romney throws his endorsement to Biden I'll respect him. If he won't... Well, that's not a good look. And it makes little sense for him.

Or in 4 years, either way works for Romney. The next four years are going to be rough for America (and the world) and whoever is at the helm is going to have a rough time. The incumbent on 2024 is going to have a tough election regardless of party.

He could resign from the party, and/or start voting against Trump's agenda more frequently (he's currently at 81% on 538's tracker).

The 2024 Primary will be Mittens vs. (a) Trump


Nah, there won't be a Trump in the mix because Biden and the soon to be Dem controlled Senate and house will pass comprehensive election security laws that will make it more difficult to collude with Putin to win elections. Sorry!

Oh god, I can see it. He'll say he's grown as a statesman and is willing to reach across the aisle. Moderates will eat this shiat up and the GOP will still fall in line.

Basically we'll be farked in 2024


Landslide loss, with Biden, Obama, AOC, and basically everyone left of Goebbels and/or not worth at least nine figures vigorously backing VP Duckworth's run.

(I mean... please, dear Aliens In Charge Of The Sim Configuration? Don't we deserve something after the last few years?)

It was a dick move, and I forget what point he even even tried to make to earn the smugness.

But, if every smirk or eyeroll I have done in my life was recorded... It would be a bad read.

There is a remote chance that Trump could stroke-out on the toilet while rage-tweeting.

If, at the RNC, they're looking to name a new nominee besides Trump, maybe he's trying to position himself as the replacement, since the enthusiasm for Pence is at Jeb Bush's "please clap" levels.
