Mitt Romney Op Ed

Recommended Posts

Romney was a Republican that was making a ton of sense until he pulled a "Trump" on his 47% comment. Ultimately, that comment doomed him.

His analysis in the article seems to be spot-on. Perhaps he is thinking about the WH again.

The MSM are loving MIttens now:

As 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney released an op-ed attacking President Trump in the Washington Post January 1, the networks couldn’t help but rave over the Republican infighting and Romney’s potential 2020 run. Revealing their hypocrisy, ABC and NBC had plenty of time to praise the incoming Utah senator, when they held contempt for him before he became a critic of the president.

What do you TDIMS have a problem with in the article? 

To a great degree, a presidency shapes the public character of the nation. A president should unite us and inspire us to follow “our better angels.” A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect. 

 

 In a 2016 Pew Research Center poll, 84 percent of people in Germany, Britain, France, Canada and Sweden believed the American president would “do the right thing in world affairs.” One year later, that number had fallen to 16 percent.

16% how sad is that....

Before Mittens became a critic of Trump the left and the MSM called him a racist, sexist bigot who failed to pay any taxes for 10 years among other things. Let's just start with the hypocrisy. Romney actually was about as much of a boy scout as they come but you would have never known that from how the left and the MSM portrayed him when he ran for president in 2012.

And keep that thought about having a problem about what an article is actually saying instead of dismissing an article out of hand when you don't approve of the source of the article.

Pointing out the hypocrisy from the left  and the MSM is not punting but fact telling. They love Mittens now because he is criticizing Trump whom they hate. They were not always in love with Mittens though...their new found love for Mittens  has more to do with their Trump hate than anything about Romney.

A christian supporting an amoral, adulterer piece of garbage that doesn't following any of Jesus's teaching. - That is hypocrisy.  I understand why you hate Mitch. He is standing by his faith, while you are wiping your ass with yours.

Wrong again. I don't hate Mitch like you hate Trump. I just think he is a RINO who will take up the mantle that John McCain left of being the republican darling of the MSM. Christians aren't voting for pastors in case you don't know, they are voting for president and I will take a pro life president Trump any day of the week over abortion loving Hillary Clinton. And your TDS is showing again....

oh now Romneys "the swamp"...lmao. I'll fully acknowledge the MSM is annoying as shit when they give a republican an on air rimjob as he's criticizing Trump. But at the same time, even if he makes incredibly valid points that no one can refute.....he automatically becomes a "rino". Which means republican in name only.....which is funny cause Trump isn't much of a republican. He's something else, and if you're fine with that..ok. Just not sure he isn't essentially his own party anymore. Love how Ron Paul was derided for years by you old queers yet Trump comes in and essentially parrots a lot of what Paul has talked about for decades.....and now you guys take Trump to the root. Really get your nose in that bush.

Evangelicals Stick With the Defender of Religious Liberty

The Left is losing its collective mind these days. And why not? Just when they think President Donald Trump is cornered and his presidency ready to implode, his poll numbers inch upward. When the mainstream media sends its reporters into the “foreign” territory of the American heartland to see whether Trump’s support has waned, they’re chagrined to discover just the opposite: His base is hardening. But there’s one group among the president’s base that really irks the Left: evangelical Christians. With the tapes recording a discussion about an alleged Trump payoff off a Playboy model in the headlines these days, could evangelicals be ready to jump ship?

Nope. Trump continues to enjoy high poll numbers among those who identify as evangelicals. Why?

John Fea, chairman of the Department of History at Messiah College in Pennsylvania, seems to have it all figured out. In a recent (wrong) opinion penned for USA Today, Fea asked, “Why do so many evangelicals believe in Donald Trump? Because they privilege fear over hope, power over humility, and nostalgia over history.”

Fea characterizes evangelicals as “intellectually lazy” in waging a “failing war against thickening walls of separation between church and state, the removal of Christianity from public schools, the growing ethnic and religious diversity of the country, the intrusion of the federal government into their everyday lives (especially as it pertains to desegregation and civil rights), and legalized abortion.”

In truth, Fea wants (racist) evangelicals to succumb to the secular agenda instead of seeking to repel its corrosive effects on our culture. Instead of seeking new leadership to protect the sanctity of the unborn, promote the primacy of marriage between a man and a woman, and reject the Rainbow Mafia’s thought policing, evangelicals should celebrate the new world in which they find themselves.

That world, by the way, has left Christians vulnerable to crippling lawsuits and wrecked livelihoods for refusing to bake a same-sex wedding cake, for erecting a cross in the public square, and for reciting a prayer before a football game. Their First Amendment guarantee of religious liberty has, for years now, been under withering assault by intolerant leftist secularists.

For decades, Republicans at all levels of government gave campaign lip service to the hopes of Christians around the country only to turn their backs on those same voters once in office. Why, then, continue to elect these well-meaning but mild-mannered choirboys? Instead, why not throw in behind a serial philanderer who’s delivering the strongest pro-life message in our history and seating a conservative Supreme Court that will defend religious liberty for the next generation?

And just how has Trump backed up his rhetoric? Ralph Reed, head of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, recently stated that Trump, in contrast to Hillary Clinton, “was strongly pro-life and released a list of conservative judges from whom he promised to select Antonin Scalia’s replacement.” Moreover, Reed continued, “He pledged to defund Planned Parenthood, move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, end the harassment of churches by the IRS, withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and defend religious freedom. He has kept every one of those promises.”

Evangelical Christians now sense a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to advance the principles and values of Christianity that are today being attacked from multiple angles. As a result, they’re willing to overlook the moral failings in their president’s personal life.

But it’s not only the leftist push against Christian traditions, mores, and values here at home that’s driving support for the president. It’s the broader objective of saving all people of faith from oppression in other parts of the world.

The Washington Free Beacon’s Susan Crabtree writes, “[Former U.S. Senator and Kansas Governor] Sam Brownback, who serves as the ambassador at large for religious freedom at the State Department, pledged a new U.S. government commitment to halting the persecution of religious minorities around the world and called on other countries to join the campaign.”

Some 80 countries sent representatives to the summit where Brownback spoke this week about worldwide religious persecution, particularly against Christians, and the need to spread the ideals of religious liberty beyond American borders. At the summit, Brownback asserted, “Religious freedom really, truly is for everyone. It’s a right given by God, and your presence is an encouragement to people of faith around the world that someone cares about their plight.” He added, “Unfortunately, a large majority of the world live in countries where the freedom to practice their own faith is extremely limited … and in some cases deadly.”

Moreover, Vice President Mike Pence spoke Thursday about religious liberty, which he called the “first freedom of everyone in the world.” He rousingly addressed threats to religious liberty in China, North Korea, Iran, Turkey, Europe, Nicaragua, and even here at home. And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a declaration calling on governments around the world to defend that liberty. The document states, “Religious freedom is a far-reaching, universal, and profound human right that all peoples and nations of good will must defend around the globe.”

It should be no surprise that evangelicals continue to support a president who has delivered more than they ever could have imagined. Her childhood Methodist background notwithstanding, a President Hillary Clinton would have dealt a crushing blow to any hope of restoring (or even limiting the damage to) Judeo-Christian values in our country.

In the end, evangelicals are not the narrow-minded Bible-thumpers the media wants us to believe. They’re actually politically astute, and they know a winner when they see one. And in the minds of Christians across the country, President Trump has been a champion for the values and principles they believe in.

Oh no, you googled crap to make you feeling better about being a fake christian. Here you go. Here some 'real' Christians that aren't cheerleaders for amoral, sexual predator.

When politics undermines our theology, we must examine that politics. The church’s role is to change the world through the life and love of Jesus Christ. The government’s role is to serve the common good by protecting justice and peace, rewarding good behavior while restraining bad behavior (Romans 13). When that role is undermined by political leadership, faith leaders must stand up and speak out. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The church must be reminded that it is not the master or the servant of the state, but rather the conscience of the state.”

You could justify the vote, but you can't justify defending an amoral piece of garbage.

Rand Paul SLAPS Mitt Romney for ‘virtue signaling’ over Trump

 

Rand Paul isn’t wasting any time slapping his soon-to-be Senate colleague for his op-ed attack on Trump.

Paul referred to Romney as a “big government Republican’ who never liked Reagan and then implies that Romney is a faux conservative because he’s more worried about virtue signaling about Trump’s character than Trump’s “actual conservative reform agenda”:

 

Like other Big Government Republicans who never liked Reagan, Mitt Romney wants to signal how virtuous he is in comparison to the President. Well, I’m most concerned and pleased with the actual conservative reform agenda @realDonaldTrump has achieved.
https://www.cnbc.com/2015/10/05/when-did-republicans-become-obsessed-with-reagan.html 

 

And this is part of what I suspect would happen. Romney comes out swinging a bat at Trump and not only alienates people who want to see Trump succeed at solid conservative agenda, but also his own Republican colleagues who have participated in accomplishing a conservative agenda.

The only friends Romney has truly made with this op-ed is Democrats and staunch anti-Trump Republicans. And the media, of course.

Even Shapiro wondered on Twitter what Romney was thinking with this strategy:

 

Even if you agree with the sentiments here, I don't get the strategy. If this is just seeking Strange New Respect from people who hated Romney in 2012 the same way they hate Trump today, that's not likely to reunify conservatives around the principles Romney is espousing.
