QotD: Brainwashed or Light Rinse

 

In honor of Mitt Romney, who really knows how to tick off Republicans, I have a quote from his Dad and the stunning response.

In 1967, as he prepared to challenge President Lyndon Johnson, Romney took a completely different position that U.S. involvement in Vietnam had been a mistake from the beginning. In a TV interview with a Detroit station, he was confronted with the previous statement and basically accused of a flip-flop. (Plus ca change.)

Romney Cuts Through His Own Cant

 

Mitt Romney, a one-term governor of a liberal northeastern state, will be sworn into the U.S. Senate today. 

It’s well known that Donald Trump was not my choice for the Republican presidential nomination. Nice guy that I am, I can’t even say that I was my own choice in the 2012 general election. It’s something I like to think I had in common with the 2008 Republican nominee, the late Senator John McCain: play nice, lose with honor and make a seamless transition back into the political establishment.

Ordinarily, the second-place finisher in a presidential election doesn’t have a second political act. But the times aren’t ordinary and Mitt Romney, the 2012 GOP nominee, is now a US Senate candidate in Utah. Hoover research fellow Lanhee Chen, Romney’s 2012 policy director, discusses what compelled his former boss to make the run and whether Romney will be a Trump White House ally or nemesis.

Ben Shapiro Compares Mitt Romney To Donald Trump

 

In 2011: Mitt Romney has about as much charm as a Ziploc bag, and his support for Romneycare in Massachusetts should immediately put him out of the running. Though brilliant, Newt Gingrich is chameleonic and impossible to peg down to principle; therefore, he’s unacceptable to many primary voters. Sarah Palin is polarizing; Haley Barbour bears […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

 

Mitt Romney’s speech criticizing Donald Trump wasn’t warmly received by everybody. Some pointed out the Romney is an out-of-touch elitist RINO who just doesn’t “get it,” and he was a terrible candidate. I won’t argue the point. More

Romney: The “Bombshell” in Trumps Taxes

 

Governor Romney is about to take incoming from the Trump firing squad. This afternoon he stated there is a bombshell in Trumps yet to be released taxes. While Romney hasn’t endorsed any remaining candidates, one would assume he prefers the GOPe ticket over Trump. If his taxes are not released posthaste, are we looking at a window for Rubio or […]

The Case Against Fiorina Ramps Up

 

I’m sorry to spoil the victory lap among Fiorina supporters, but Debra J. Saunders of the SFGate has taken a fair bit of time to spell out the pros and cons of Carly Fiorina in an article which ran at their site. After extensively chronicling Fiorina’s debate performance, strengths as an orator, executive history and contrast […]

Is this a stupid idea?

 

I was thinking about the push in some Ricochet circles for suggesting that the whoever the GOP nominee is next year they should choose a woman VP to combat the woman-Hillary nexus. I am not sure this is a good idea. Nominating a woman VP is a tired old political trick that has never worked […]

Romney 2016, say what?

 

Congressman Jason Chaffetz has thrown Romney’s hat into the ’16 race. Perfect. While we’re at it, let’s add some gravitas and run John McCain for VP. Or maybe overcome the war on women stigma by running Carly Fiorina on the ticket with Romney. Or there is Jeb waiting in the wings to reach the 100’s […]
