Dear President Romney,

 

Thanks for doing a great job as President. Please hang tough.

It’s sad that two years into your presidency, the MSM and FBI/DOJ is still investigating your campaign and other activities. I’m trying to keep score, so to speak, here are the big ones:

– Full financial forensics analysis of the Mormon Church because you visited tabernacles at most campaign stops. Where is the outrage from Congress?

– Your “Notebook of Women” has transformed into a DOJ investigation into polygamy, saying that some of the families you visited at tabernacles were, in fact, yours, putting you in violation of US law — making false statements and other ridiculous charges. The New York Times has spilled ink on the subject nearly every day since you narrowly beat Hillary. The Clinton email server barely got a paragraph.

– Visiting Mormon tabernacles in foreign countries during the campaign so they want to charge you with accepting donations from foreign nationals. The treason charge because the missions you visited were in third-world socialist countries is way out there. Which also prompted the Intelligence Community to get a FISA warrant for suspected international fraud and terrorist support activities — you fed a Muslim baby!

– The IRS has jumped on the bandwagon by investigating all your tax filings during your years with Bain. This takes the cake since the DOJ/Obama leftovers hired Lois Lerner to lead the investigation.

– A re-hash of the 2002 Olympics financials?! You saved the taxpayer millions of dollars and they accuse you of profiteering and fraud. When will it end?

On the civilian side:

– ACLU has filed multiple charges against you, the Mormon church and God for “Separation of Church and State” violations, that by accepting money from Mormons while electioneering for a government position was illegal. I think it was really the usage of the “Mormon Miracle” when the economy leaped to 3.2% GDP first quarter. The real scandal is Obama taking credit for it.

– Church of Scientology has hired a legion of celebrity-hired lawyers (thanks Tom Cruise!) forcing the release of “secret” Mormon practices and claiming that Mormonism is not a Christian religion. CNN was blasting this 24×7 during the Christmas holiday run-up.

– The National SPCA is asking a judge in Massachusetts to have all pets removed from your home while they have protesters march in front of your home with placards reading “Dog Hater” with a picture of a dog chained to a car trunk hood. Ridiculous. But I see a local judge is reviewing the case and the Massachusetts State Police are prepared to go in with an armored vehicle, stating, “will shoot all resisting animals if necessary.”

I think you should start using Twitter and take your message right to the people.

Good Luck,
@JimGoneWild

    That is what gets me. The MSM is acting like expected. The Democrats are about what I expected. The NeverTrump is a surprise. I did not expect the establishment GOP to join with the Democrats as much.

    Yes. Which leads to the question: exactly who/what is really their common foe? What are these unusual bedfellows allied against?

    Taking the personality/person of Donald Trump out of the picture and inserting almost any other political figure I can think of — like Mitt Romney — brings into unusual focus how skewed much of the thinking/assertions and punditry is regarding the current President.

    I disagree.

    Neither the MSM, nor the Daily Kos, nor Salon, nor New York Magazine, nor The New Yorker, nor Slate, nor Vox, nor The New Republic, nor Atlantic would go after Romney like this.

    Romney was not a Birther, but Trump was.

    In 2008, after McCain won the Florida Primary, Romney promptly got out and endorsed McCain. Trump kept threatening that if he didn’t win the nomination, he’d run Third Party.

    Romney never bragged about all of the married women he was bedding, because it is likely that the only woman he ever had marital relations with was his first, and only, wife Ann. Trump cheated on Wife 1 with Wife 2, then cheated on Wife 2 with Wife 3, then cheated on Wife 3 with a porn star and an almost year long relationship with the Playboy Bunny of the Year for 1968.

    Romney didn’t cheat people, anyone could invest in Bain Capital.

    Romney answered to a Board of Directors, and the voters of his state, Trump has answered to no one since his father came down with Altzheimer’s Disease.

    Romney released his tax returns which showed extremely high charitable giving, Trump won’t release his tax returns, and the so-called “Trump Foundation” got shut down for flagrant self-dealing, the cardinal sin of any fiduciary.

    Romney did not try to escape public service, he served on a two year mission for his church.

    Romney is a faithful member of his church, Trump parades around talking about “Two Corinthians.”

    Unlike Trump with only a bachelors degree in economics (not business), Romney had both a MBA and JD from Harvard.

    Unlike Trump who had five bankruptcies, and inherited his money, Romney was a dogged investor.

    Unlike Trump who ran a sham “Trump University,” Romney saved the Salt Lake City Olympics.

    Romney is a life-long Republican, Trump is a Populist who took invaded the Republican Party to take advantage of our stupid “plurality wins all delegates” rules.

    Both Romney and Trump have five children, Romney from his only wife, and Trump from three wives. (One can only speculate about the number of abortions and illegitimate children in Trump’s countless affairs and casual insemenations.)

    In August 2018, Romney said that it must be electorally disqualifying to equivocate on racism, Trump has played cute games about David Duke during the 2016 election, and then White Supremacists concerning Charlottesville. With response to Trump on Charlottesville, Romney tweeted “No, not the same. One side racist, bigoted, Nazi. The other opposes racism and bigotry. Morally different universes.”

    That sums it up: Romney and Trump exist in morally opposite universes.

    Romney is smart, Trump isn’t, in fact he apparently failed to comphrend that the Mattis resignation letter was a rebuke until he heard TV commentators tell him so.

    Romney is a leader who people wish to emulate. Trump is a bully, and I, for one, refuse to be led by him, or to be complicit in his bullying.

    I disagree.

    You know, there’s some stuff here with which I don’t disagree, and I actually appreciate the time taken. It is, however, filtered through the realm of subjectivity and Trump animosity that undermines the valid points. Not all of these items relate to governing and some of them are simply distortions. But I’ll keep in mind that Romney is smarter than Trump because he failed in 2012 and Trump succeeded in 2016.

    As I read this post by @jimgonewild I read that it is irrelevant whether Romney is a better or worse person than any other President. It’s an argument that over the past decade the press and portions of the government bureaucracy, have stooped to such a level that no matter how good a person is, if that person is a Republican, the press and its cooperating portions of the government bureaucracy will tint, color, assemble, twist, or manufacture allegations of wrongdoing against that person.

    How can you argue with this? The MSM is there to promote statism no matter what.

    Gary, I think your beef is more with the electorate and the GOP Ruling Elite. 

    When people “behave badly” (who is to blame here and for what?) or the system is breaking down, I’d say look at the incentives.

    Yeah, antifa (who are actually very, very “fa”) are just kind-hearted people opposed to racism and bigotry.

    Suffice it to say that Romney’s understanding of what went down in Charlottesville is the understanding of someone who only watches CNN.

    And that is a problem.

    I have very conservative friends who don’t really look for news outside of the mainstream outlets, and have a wildly different view of current events than I do. They’re conservative, they’re more conservative than me in some cases. But they really don’t know what’s going on, thanks to the news media.

    I just got this LOL

    “This book is very tough.” – President Donald Trump

    The Bush Crime Family smashes through the layers of lies and secrecy that have surrounded and protected our country’s most successful political dynasty for nearly two centuries. New York Times bestselling author Roger Stone lashes out with a blistering indictment, exposing the true history and monumental hypocrisy of the Bushes. In Stone’s usual “go for the jugular” style, this is a no-holds-barred history of the Bush family, comprised of smug, entitled autocrats who both use and hide behind their famous name. They got a long-overdue taste of defeat and public humiliation when Jeb’s 2016 presidential bid went down in flames.

    Besides detailing the vast litany of Jeb’s misdeeds — including receiving a $4 million taxpayer bailout when his father was vice president as well as his startlingly-close alignment with supposed “enemy” Hillary Clinton — Stone travels back to Bush patriarchs Samuel and Prescott, right on through to presidents George H. W. and George W. Bush to weave an epic story of privilege, greed, corruption, drug profiteering, assassination, and lies. A new preface to this paperback edition features explosive information, including the family’s Machiavellian plan to propel Jeb’s son George Prescott Bush forward as the family’s next political contender.

    The Bush Crime Family will have readers asking, “Why aren’t these people in prison?”
