President Trump tweets support for Mitt Romney. [Lumps Out]
OK Utah, here’s your sign:
This is an example of Trump becoming a politician, rather than staying as the genuine pro-America people’s candidate/President. I see no good reason to do this since we all know this won’t change Romney behavior if he gets elected. Romney showed us who and what he is…it seems that politics will never be cleaned up by the voter, and this move by President Trump is a bad move.

Oh give it a rest— Trump can not stop him from running as he is a ” favorite son” in Utah …why start out in a fight if he can bring Romney to his side as others have done ? I do not like Romney but apparently you have no clue as to the politics in Utah.

Exactly, and Romney has it in the bag. Dems are winning special elections for whatever reason, we need a GOP sweep for midterms. Better a RINO with an arm we can twist than a Dem.
I saw an interview before his announcement on Fox with RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, who basically promised Romney wouldn’t go against Pres Trump if he did run, so we’ll see, they will hear a bunch of screams if he votes like McCain and screws us. The RNC knows we voted for Pres Trump’s policies. Someone mentioned he has children who want to go into politics, maybe he’s doing this to clean up his image to give them a better name as well. So I am going to be hopeful. There was a time Pres Trump supported Romney before he entered politics.
Same with Arizona, forget 80-something controversial Sheriff Joe. We have to be smart and pick winners.
I agree Kaco— but I have to tell you this excessive caterwauling gets on my last nerve. Trump makes a decision someone does not like and viola Trump is now the swamp. It is just stupid. Trump values loyalty as do. I am not even going to pretend to understand all that Trump deals with on
a daily basis…it is mind boggling most days— I figure if we get 80% of what the country needs I am good with that. I am old enough to know you do not always get 100% of what you want. I think you either trust President or you don’t. He is not fighting this hard to fail. I wish people could understand this.

There are a lot of big issues to tackle, illegal immigration and immigration reform is a big one I hope to be solved. I wish the Dreamers weren’t thrown in with DACA, though, so don’t know where that’s going to go. And of course, trade, another biggie.
I think the President is doing the best he can with what he has to work with. Romney is a done deal and he knows that, he can’t control everything, but he will do his best, he fights every day for us with no pay. He deserves better than the crap that’s been piled on him from the Left and RINOs with all the bad biased press and corruption. But he has a better disposition to handle the “slings and arrows” than us, and like his doctor said, he wakes up every day fresh.

Driving down the road and doing some shopping today, I kept seeing Help Wanted signs all over the place! It’s strange!
And over the past couple of days, the Lord has made me grateful for the Mexicans and some of the others that swamped us…LEGALLY!
Orlando has some good Mexican Grocery Stores that are way more reasonable than the chain stores. And, where you might have difficulty buying bulk beans and stuff at a regular store, you can find them there…including, HFCS free crackers and PAN Masa Harina, which is made from white corn and so far not GMO. So, I’m not having to pay organic prices for it.
And I can get my pick of 30, 40 lb bags of brown rice and soy sauce and noodles at the Oriental market. I still haven’t figured out how all of these “Preppers” believe that brown rice goes rancid quickly. It doesn’t. Plus Oriental markets carry a lot of dehydrated foodstuff cheap!
I’ve now got an Hispanic family living on my one side. He’s a plumber and they work like crazy.
I’ve got a Vietnamese woman rehabbing a mobile on my other side and I have yet to talk to her. She’s having some guys do work on the property before she moves in.
Both of them are into gardening. One raises chickens. They are both buying those homes.
And the change in ATTITUDE in the air down here is great! People are hopeful again!
But also, people are diving into prepping! And my gutt feeling this year is to get my ducks in a row!
I love Trump, I think he’s done a great jobs so far, but I’ve still got a bad feeling. Can’t quite put my finger on WHAT, but something bad coming down the pike. Thought the market correction might have been it, because I’ve had this gutt feeling for awhile now, but that’s not it.
So, I believe we have a reprieve. And maybe that’s all we’ve got.
I didn’t do a garden at all during the election. Now, I’m making up for lost time. Just this feeling of “you’ve gotta get this done”, type thing.
And I do remember during the Primaries, pleading with God, “Give us more time to get ready Lord, and keep waking people up before it’s too late!”
I got reminded of that this month.
Do not be surprised if the oligarchs/ bankers crash the stock market (world’s biggest ponzi scheme) to blame it on our POTUS. The stock market runs in cycles, we are overdue for a 1929 style crash so that a few wealthy people can scoop up the pickings for pennies on the dollar.
Check out books by James Dale Davidson and William Rees-Mogg. Both Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump are battling the New World Order and Islamic invaders. The stock market is a bubble because of too many years of below-market interest rates.

That TV show Bull, recently had a small scale example of what caused the crash in 1929. Pump up the stocks and then sell. Leave the smaller fish holding the bag…same with Bitcoin and other crypto currencies, except there, there’s no there there! No actual proof that it has any value. Nothing to back it up and if you lose your key, OH WELL!
Some good books on the stock market RACKET by James Dale Davidson and William Rees-Moog.
Crash the market, most people dump their holdings to cut their losses, then the bankers and oligarchs swoop in to pick most of it up for pennies on the dollar. Stock market is a bubble due to years of artificially suppressed interest rates. Thanks to the Federal Reserve and Rothschild bankers!
Excellent points, Sayit. The POTUS is stuck in a poker game with a rigged deck and the dealer dealing seconds.
Lesser men would have crumbled LOOONG before now. I am sure that PDJT has weighed his options and is charting the best course he can. He IS being forced to choose from a bunch of lousy options, IMHO.
If you remember, the entire Trump Admin. was initially vilified by BB (Bannon, specifically), as being too Globalist / Establishment for Americas interests. It appears to me that those same people (Tillerson, Cohn, McMaster, Ross, Ligthzinger, Mulvaney and even the new head of DHS) are doing alright by us.
I will remain cautiously optimistic about the President’s success, much of which will be dependent on the midterm results. He needs backup in congress, and WE have to step up to deliver that backup. We must vote in the biggest numbers EVER recorded for midterm elections
“We must vote in the biggest numbers EVER recorded for midterm elections”
There is safety in numbers. We must secure 2018 ! This is OUR job so talk to every person we know and get them to the polls. Trump is doing his job – we need to do ours.
Agreed sayit….tons of people have become wsy smarter than PT today. Most of the names I don’t recognize.
I just react to the nonsense and I should know better. It is like Trump has a 500 lb rock on his shoulder and his objective is to get up the hill and they are pulling at his shirt to ask a dumb questions–why this hill.. who said this hill.. are you tired, why is the rock white etc etc completely oblivious to the 500 lb rock on his shoulder …
There are others that are running for the Republican nomination.
Looks pretty solid. Everybody knows who Mitt is, so, Utah, give this guy a chance, or take a chance on another alternative.
Dems are winning special elections because they are presenting new fresh and younger faces with charisma.
No, dems win special elections because the media helps them ruin their opposition candidates with lies like they did Moore, and also because dems are the best at vote fraud.
Doug Jones isn’t a fresh young face and he has the charisma of a dog biscuit.
I got an earful from my aunt from Huntsville today about the situation Alabama (the recent Alabama special election). She was in NY for her sister’s funeral. I inquired about what is really going on down there. She said that the “old guard” GOPe is controlling things. They are putting up old fart candidates with serious character defects, instead of a young, quality candidate. So Republican Alabama sent a dem to the Senate. Thanks, GOPe
And that’s my point, which you conveniently ignore, and that is that Trump will NOT bring Romney to his side. So…instead of getting a good candidate, America get Romney. Better for Trump to say nothing than kiss up to a snake.
You do not know that. You are guessing. Get this through your mind..Romney is a done deal I doubt there is anyone in Utah that will oppose him. Trump will figure out how to work with him. THAT is why 2018 is important to get as many conservative seats as possible.
Coast, can we “reason together” ? Romney/Mormon/Utah. Synonymous. This was a very Reaganesque thing for Trump to do; reminds me of Reagan’s Big Tent.
I am sure they have talked and have decided to work together on the things they agree on. I am not worried for Trump; he knows what he is doing.
People were upset when Trump rightly endorsed Strange and look how that turned out – a loss in the reddest of red states.
Exactly! This, this, this! Anyone who doubts President Trump’s choice of candidate need look no further than the Dems winning in Alabama against a sketchy candidate who didn’t take campaigning seriously and was backed by traitor Sloppy Steve. It’s not blind loyalty. Just remember Donald Trump’s choice of music after every single rally he has ever held: ‘You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you’ll find, you get what you need.’
Thank you MAGA ….
Seems like POTUS treated Paul Ryan with the same misplaced respect and look how that turned out.
Is this the heir-apparent backstabber to inherent the “Silver Shiv” from John McCain?
We can now expect more snatching defeat from the laws of victory in the finest tradition of Republican kneecapping of its party’s President. This is yet another attempt to hold Trump’s successful efforts at bay until the globalists can claw their way back to the top.
“jaws of victory”….
Heh, the only one who actually has a silver shiv is DJT.
As much as I like Trump, I am truly wondering why he would endorse this cull. And I am starting to seriously doubt that ANYTHING is really going to change. Next thing you know, he’ll be endorsing lyin ryan, turtle mcconnell and looney lindsy graham. This is all becoming really painful and annoying to watch as it seems the Swamp critters are staging a come back. Sorry, but the glitter has really worn off this entire charade as far as I am concerned. Reckon I’ll go sit by the fire with a hot chocolate for few months, let this insanity continue and check back in – oh – maybe a year from now. I suspect that not much will have changed or actually happened given how things are “progressing” at this time. Trumps words say it all – “All talk – no action”. This can be debated forever but until someone takes command and heads start to roll – or hang – what ever – this sure is seeming like a waste of time following current events.
After all Trump has done for the country in a short time that is your reaction? Did you expect him to wave his magic wand and viola Presto all is fixed? WOW.

We need GOP seats and Romney is going to win the election anyway. Better to just call it a day and act like Romney is on his side, power of persuasion, it would make Romney look bad if he starts acting like a fool against Pres Trump.
Impala, imagine the resistance that Trump’s policies instigate on a Global scale, then square it; I am really tired if the whining on our side because Trump can’t just snap his fingers and make it all go away.
He has done a Phenomenal Job beating back the Beast of Globalism, against odds that no one else was willing to bet against. Let Trump handle it; we don’t even have an inkling of what he has to deal with on a moment by moment basis.
Yeah, you get your hot chocolate and don’t forget your snow shovel!
Trump is really quite humble for all his bravado.
Is this part of his negotiating to soften an opponent?
Is Trump trolling Romney?
Remember during Romney’s second debate he rolled over and quit. To Oldbama… “I just want to clarify that you killed Bin Laden and you saved GM”. GM could have saved itself with bankruptcy reorganization. The bond holders got little as the government went against 150 years of business law. The bond holders should have gotten that 40%.
Now the unions that bankrupted GM own
40 % and the federal government owns 60%.
Romney is a globalist goon.
Maybe, just maybe, Mitch is finding out that he can make money in a manufacturing economy as well as while hollowing out (actually, decimating) one. And since hollowing out an economy is not supported these days, he just might change tracks.
I wonder how many of these “globalists,” are actually opportunists rather than marxist/centralized-power propagandists, or true believers. Once they find that the track to prosperity is a manufacturing one, they just might jump at the “opportunity.” Actually, this is the behavior of good capitalists. Find the main chance. Today “globalism” appears to be the engine that couldn’t.
An aside. On a trip to Death Valley, CA, mining and manufacturing plants that had been out of business on the last one, were humming away. “Ghosts towns” (in their impoverished appearance) along the way also appear to have new life. MAGA
The problem that builds for PDJT with the base is how much corruption of language is possible before it gets too much.
Yesterday Mittens was beyond the pale now he’s a great man for the Senate.
Maybe that’s just how America functions….words mean nothing in post modernist USA.
Prediction, Romney will win Utah and turn into another McPain Pain in the Rear for Trump.
And we will be on Ronna McDaniel and the RNC like white on rice if that is the case.
Trump did the same thing with the Democrats after the 2016 election.
“I can work with Chuck Schumer”, democrat reply resist and no compromise.
“I choose not pursue an investigation against Hillary, she has been through enough”, democrat reply Russia-Russia assault.
For those who are fans of Frank Herbert, there is a line in the book DUNE. “The art of kanley still exists”, it was a custom whereby enemies threatening to eliminate each other had give their adversary a way out.
My take is that PDJT (VSG) cannot stop him from running and as a favorite of the Utah Mormons is going to win – so why go out on a pre-sawed off limb to oppose. Yes Romney is a RINO, yes he is a globalist … BUT BUT (big buts) it is clear he was blackmailed and neutralized by Obummer in the 2012 election and PDJT (with this day lighting of the deep state espionage swamp ongoing) HAS the DIRT on Romney and will use this info to control him bigly. We need R’s in congress, Believe me, Romney will support all of PDJT’s judge nominees and proposals faced with teh leverage POTUS already has.
It doesn’t matter to the average person what Trump has on romney or how he will leverage it. People don’t like romney.
Look at all the intelligent conservatives on this thread acting like dems; in denial over this. Unfortunately, PT is human and can make mistakes. This endorsement is one of them. To those who say ” we need more republicans”: what have they ever done for us? To those who say ” you can’t always get what you want, and eventhough romney sucks, he’s better than a democrat”: how is romney, in any way, better? You sound like the rinos, caving in and saying “oh well, we’ll get it right next time.” To those of you who think romney will change and work with PT: you’re in denial. Regardless of what PT thinks or has planned, it is the people who will vote. They will not vote for a squish, rino, traitor, or slimy, smiling politician. People do trust PT, but not romney; it’s common sense.
Mitt is an open borders, CoC corporate globalist and welfare statist
Imagine if PDJT had stood up and articulated calmly why he coudn’t support such a person for the Senate. To oppose Mittens knowing Mittens will probably win would do wonders for the base by the ‘say one thing that sounds like core policy then do something else’ President. That, alas, is not the NYC way.
Holding my nose while I swallow the medicine. Hope ol Judas will cooperate with POTUS.
Holding my nose while I swallow. I trust POTUS, but my faith is stretched!
Could this be a method to create a discussion on the merits, or lack of, a Sen Romney from Utah? And in doing so, cause people to ask questions like, “hey, wasn’t there this Ward person that told us McCain would be trouble”.
I do not live in Utah, and I am searching for more people like Mark Meadows in my part of NC to support. Yes, we need a Conservative Majority in the House and Senate. Not simply a majority of folks who place an (R) behind their name. We need statesmen not representatives from the Peoples Democratic Republican Party or the Peoples Socialist Democratic Party.
We need people to represent us that actually have lived in our county not merely purchased some acreage and a PO Box.
We need people who are supported by the residents of the State and not some conglomerate lobbying firm(s).
We need people who will actually ACT on our behalf and not just hire a good caterer for the campaign BBQ Bash.
I would think that if we do not see such people soon, the Ladies Auxillary of the Church of J. Moses Browning will insist that the men of the congregation take their positions whilst they keep the powder and shot coming.
You people need to relax. This is hilarious. Romney hates Trump and Trump is just toying with him. This actually hurts Romney as conservatives such as myself who voted for Trump don’t care who he endorses and won’t vote for Romney. But this will cause major heartburn for the 18 percent of the democrats, based on current polls, who will vote for romney and the moderate/uninformed republicans who don’t like Trump because they fall for media lies. I couldn’t care less if he is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, as am I. I think for myself and vote for candidates based on whom I feel is the best choice, and Romney is never the best choice. Despite all the assertions otherwise here in the comments, Mormons do not vote as a block and are not told how to vote. We are simply encouraged to vote and to be civic minded. While Romney will win as no one serious will challenge him, despite his glass jaw and lack of spine, I don’t think it will be the landslide so many predict.
These “polls” cannot be trusted.
I give zero credence to these silver-tongued prognosticators with the crystal balls that claim the ability to forecast the outcome solely due to this pre-election posturing.
I got an earful from my aunt from Huntsville today about the situation Alabama (the recent Alabama special election). She was in NY for her sister’s funeral.

President Trump is my guy. No one else wanted to be my guy, no one else fought to be my guy, no one else has taken one-thousandth of the abuse President Trump has taken while being my guy. So anyone who is weak in the knees because they don’t get every little thing they hoped for, well, you can go join the three progs picketing on the street corner. You’re more like them than you know.
America was lost without TRUMP, and it still would be! There are still the enemies of America to be defeated, and our glorious leader is the only person in my lifetime who has the intelligence to make it happen. He is playing 5 level chess and these losers like Romney are just the best of the worst, another Flake or McCain, slightly better than a democrat. Believe in Trump; he’s the salvation of America. Everybody else is talk, he is action !! MAGA! PS.- RIGHT on DAVE !
It seems to me that way too many people want instant gratification, instead of trying to take a step back and look at the BIG picture -long term like the Japanese culture does. American businesses only look ahead a few years at most, the Japanese plan for what might be things be like 25-50 years for now. For Most things. I am thinking of those reactors near the coast. In hindsight, that was not a great long term strategy for their placement.
In Europe, they design houses to last centuries, in America, decades. It took many decades for the swamp to fill with rotten politicians and policies. It is not going to be drained overnight, either. For all you complainers out there, I ask one thing:
WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE IF HILLARY WAS IN THERE?
Obama – Part three and four. I rest my case.
