It's weird that Romney is now the voice of reason within his party. Mind you, he would have raided the Federal piggy-bank fairly thoroughly, but nowhere near with the same verve and audacity as Donnie, and that is f*cking low ass bar for comparison.

It's not 'heroic' to state the obvious. Or at least it shouldn't be.

I picked him to win. The presidency in 2024 at 1000:1.

That is a bet I hope not to cash.

Rmoney won't remain an R for much longer.  The Trump crowd will drive him out or just not vote for him.

Utah is a special case. MIttens will have that job as long as he wants it. Who's going to try and primary him from the right?

Of he actually meant what he said, he'd cross the aisle and vote for bills that Manchin and Sinema won't. Until then, he's all talk.

I don't think that works in this case.
In Utah, a little more than 67% of adults have had at least one dose.

Romney is just an out of touch asshole ready to serve the richest of the rich, but at least he has some semblance of decorum. Trump is a vicious barbarian psycho criminal traitor. When Romney lost, he took it with dignity. When Trump lost, he tried to get a mob to murder his own VP.

Out of the two, I'd take Romney any day of the week.

This ^^^

This is definitely truth, imo -- there is an opportunity for him to really show his true colors as an American  -- a human being  -- by voting for a federal baseline of voting rights standards.

He some of the right things sometimes, but he often fails to separate himself from the herd of reactionary conservatives supporting the new Jim Crow stuff

At least the richest of the rich are as ill served by the rabble overthrowing the government they spent all that money to buy just to install a boorish clown as dictator as the rest of us are.

Something something politics makes strange bedfellows.

He is not the voice of reason. He is an evil asshole that will literally snatch money from starving people to enrich himself. His fighting this Trumperism is just self preservation. He knows history, and he knows if this Nazism takes over America, it is only a matter of time before they came for Mormons, you know, him.

"After all, [former] President [Donald] Trump and his supporters take credit for developing the vaccine," Romney said, "why the heck won't they take advantage of taking the vaccine they received plaudits for having developed?"

No one in their right mind gave them any credit for the vaccines, but to answer his question... because they are assholes and idiots, usually in that order.
He knows that... *shrug*

Remember, in 2012, another Mormon was in the running for the GOP nomination, and he was superior to Romney in every way except, unfortunately, popularity: Jon Huntsman, former Governor of Utah.

/Newt Gingrich was also in the GOP primaries that year. I remember some comedian remarking that Newt'd had 50% more wives than both Mormons in the race combined.

Romneycare, that program Obamacare was patterned after? What about it?

Either way, I'm not saying Romney is good, just that at the very least he follows established rules of behavior. We've seen the way Romney handles a presidential loss. He didn't deny reality and claim he won, and he didn't whip a mob into such a frenzy that they were ready to hang the vice president in broad daylight.

Romney is bad, but we've survived many years of typical bad Republicans. Trump is in a class by himself.

Romney is at least capable of faking decency or at least an understanding of decency.  Decency is of such little value to donnie pissfreak that he doesn't even understand the benefit of trying to fake it.  Decency and compassion are liabilities as far as the disgusting orange fatberg is concerned.

Who's "we"? Cos a whole lot of people who are part of my values of "we" farking well haven't. That's why some folks keep pointing out that for marginalized populations Trump wasn't notably different from his Republican predecessors. (And not nearly as different as some of y'all like to think from his Democratic predecessors, unfortunately)

I prefer to put it this way: I thought he wanted to rob us, not kill us. As such, if my only choices were him of the modern GOP, I'd pick him....but I'd still look for a bullet to put in my skull.

From my understanding a lot of Mormons were not part of the Trump cult. They just voted for him cause he was good for their agenda. I think I even saw some polls where Trump had a net negative approval rating in Utah. That's not to say all Mormons felt that way about Trump. James Woods seemed to be just fine with him.

They had an alternative in 2016: Evan McMullin. I think he got more votes there than Hillary. The SLC area is yellowish-gray on a map that colored counties by RGB coloring relative to percentage of vote between GOP, Dem, and Other.
