    When Trump was deciding to run for President in 2015, he interviewed with Romney.  He decided Romney was too weak to run for president and he was right. He also decided the rest of the 16 declared candidates cannot win either. That was why he decided to jump in. The rest is history.
    Romney just won the Senate seat in Utah. He has just proven Trump right.
    This man, which I respected, and voted for in 2012, cannot win in the current environment. What do I mean? A good person is not the test to be President on 2012 or 2016 or 2020.
    It takes a tough person to withstand the attacks coming from all sides including the biased media. Romney is barking up the wrong tree. His latest OP ED shows that he has not learned from history...his own. He want to be liked by the press but they will never support him. By attacking Trump, he is doing their bidding at the moment but wait till he try to run again...

      No republican candidate will be elected as POTUS after the farce Trump has made in the Oval Office, Jack. I don't believe you have to worry about Mitt or any other candidate from the right for a few years after DT's fall from grace.


      After all, there's over a dozen investigations into him, his family, and his cronies going on as we speak.

        Yes, and no Russian collusion.
        I would not make these bold predictions...
        Remember your history.
        They said this in 2008 when Obama was elected. They said the GOP will never win another major election...
        8 years later, they lost everything...such is politics.

          The Russian collusion will turn out to be Trump's downfall. Among many more transgressions, that is.

          I feel great about my predictions, Jack!

            You are delusional. There was never an inkling of Russian collusion. The whole affair was made up by the DNC and the FBI to protect Hillary. They wanted an insurance policy in case Trump won. That is how they plan it to take him down. These investigation by Mueller will end with a dud. Mark my words. Come back here in a few months.

                No, I don’t watch Fox news. I rely on Fox Business Channel, Drudge report, Michael Savage and Mark Levin and the Great one - Rush. These are the people I trust for reliable news. You might want to check them out.

                Michael Savage is an independent Conservative. He has written many best selling books and have been on the air 20 years.
                He is actually friends with Trump. If anyone knows Trump, the real Trump, Michael does. He does not mince words. He will decide issue by issue. He is like me. He supports Trump when he does good and calls him out when he does wrong as we all should with any President. Don’t you agree?

                  Well, this explains a lot.

                  Drudge Report, Michael Savage, Rush Limbaugh, Levin - everyone one of those people is an alarmist, lying sack whose history of lying is well-documented. People have written books about their inaccurate statements and paranoia.

                  To use those guys as the basis for your world view is sad beyond belief. No wonder you like Trump - a screaming, paranoid blowhard. It would seem you admire screaming, paranoid, blowhards. These people don't work in the news business. They work in the alarmist, entertainment, exploitation business - and in that sense, they are doing nothing wrong. They are not hiding their intent, but it's like getting your news from E!

                  Clearly, no need to respond to anything you post anymore.

                  Here's the skinny on Rush, for example:

                  https://www.politifact.com/personalities/rush-limbaugh/

                  Only 5% of what he says is "mostly true". Hilarious. Here's another:

                  https://www.politifact.com/personalitie … rely-true/

                  But you are ingesting and regurgitating this stuff as though it's true. Scary. More good stuff:

                    Sure, believe what you want. That is why you are mis guided. Rush has an audience of 20 million listeners daily 3 hours a week.
                    He and Levin and savage and O’Reilly have written numerous best selling books on the infamous NYT best seller lists. Though they refuse to review any conservative books...
                    Keep you head in the sand and watch CNN and MSNBC and tell me who is trusted...
                    Drudge was the one who broke the news about Bill Clinton and Monica...

                Another bit of wisdom for you. Impeachment of a President is a political move. It has nothing to do with the law or crimes that comes under the law...
                Just like Bill Clinton survived impeachment even though the evidence was over whelming.
                In Trump’s case, there was never any underlying crime. If he would be impeached by the Democratic controlled Congress, it would be because they want to hurt him politically... and they would fail just lime with Clinton.
                The country was doing well economically speaking under Clinton just as they are dojng well now jnder Trump. Impeachment would be highly unlikely...

      Jack,

      I like what president Donald Trump said about Romney.  "If he fought Obama as hard as he's fighting me, he would have become president."

      I thought that was the best response. 

      Each time you start a thread it seems to always be overwhelmed with those with serious cases of TDS.

      Forget the wall...we need to have some public money to find a cure for this public problem.

          Jack, a wise man once said "It's not how you handle winning that matters, it's how you handle losing.  Anybody can handle winning.  How you handle losing will reveal more about who you are than winning."

          I think losing has revealed what mentally and emotionally unbalanced children are on the left and control the Democrat party.  It is a shame to see.

          I do hope President Donald Trump continues with his tweets and comments.  I like watching the children on the left throw their fits.  It is who they are.

            Hmmm. There are babies on both sides. When Obama won the presidency, it took all of a few minutes for Republicans to call for him to be hanged and memes to come out showing just that. Do I have to repost that one? And what about the Republicans who called Michelle Obama a transvestite? And what about the Republican who yelled out "liar" during Obama's address to Congress? Had any Democrat ever done that to a Republican president? Just a few examples off the top of my head.

              Gee, a quick look at the news will reveal that Obama didn't experience a fraction of what President Donald Trump and his supporters have experienced. I don't recall a republican member of congress yelling "We're going to impeach that mother F***ker."  Do you have any idea of the things that have been said about President Donald Trump's family?  Whoa, I could write a lot about that topic.  Ever seen the memes about President Donald Trump?  A Bernie Sanders supporter shot Republican congressmen.  Donald Trump supporters have had eggs thrown on them, chanted by Democrats until they leave restaurants, had their MAGA hats taken, beaten up and more.  The main stream media was then and is now an extension of the Democrat party.  Sorry, Obama had a rather easy ride compared to President Donald Trump.

                When it comes to who received more harsh criticism there’s no question.

                However, Trump is not the first Republican president in history and the previous ones have not received anywhere near the same level of criticism.

                To pretend that the way Donald Trump is viewed and treated is simply a result of Democrats being sore losers is silly. It’s him, as a human being, that repulses people.

                  Couldn't disagree with you more Aime.  He's the first president since Ronald Reagan who is willing to fight against the biased media and those who attack him on the left.  It is him, he's a fighter.  Now, because the children of the Democrat party get their emotions hurt and like children say he's a bully, so be it.  I hope he continues and I'll continue laughing at the fits thrown by those on the left.

                    You’re not really disagreeing with me at all though, are you? You’re acknowledging that it’s his behaviour that elicits such a response. The difference is that you see it as acceptable and put a positive spin on it where other people see it as being crass and inappropriate for a leader. You are free to enjoy his behaviour just as others are free not to.

                    My point was that it’s not some inherent quality of the left that causes an uproar every time an election is lost - it was this particular election and this particular president, because he’s divisive and he’s an instigator and the right thrives on that just as much as the left hates it.

                The political right collectively advocated for Obama to be hanged (or, they didn't object much to such memes)

                What has happened to Trump that's worse than that? And what did Obama do to deserve such treatment other than to be black? Trump has done quite a bit to deserve such vitriol.

          Gee Randy, I hate to point this out to you, but you can impeach President Donald Trump all day, every day, but unless the Senate convicts him, he will stay in office. Since it would take 60 senators and the Republicans have 53, I don't think that will work.  I guess you can still dream.

              A Massive Blue Wave of Democratic Righteousness was primarily hired by the people in our last midterm election to CANCEL Bozo Trump's / republican's atrocious Corporate Welfare Tax Cut Scam which unconscionably transferred trillions of our money to the filthy rich while exploding our deficit, to fight for Medicare for ALL, PROTECT Social Security and Medicare, PROTECT our environment, to Raise the minimum wage for ALL workers and of course to hold Bozo Trump accountable and if that means IMPEACHMENT which it looks like it does because his behavior is beyond insane and corrupt with court docs indicating he is essentially an un-indicted co-conspirator, it must be pursued along with indictment to ensure and re-affirm the USA is STILL a land of laws and no man or woman is above them:

            Yes Mike, but if the evidence of his corruption is bad enough, then the senators who didn't vote for impeachment would sign their own retirement forms. If it's shown Trump had a deal with Putin to help him win the election in some manner--we already know they did--would you still want him to be in office?


            Besides, he will be indicted anyway when he leaves office and there's no hard and fast law which says a sitting POTUS can't be indicted. It's simply a policy the Justice Dept. made and can also unmake if they deem the crimes serious enough.

                    After the committee's request that Trump order an FBI investigation of Kavanaugh, and his action in doing just that, it seems apparent that the President can order an FBI investigation at will.

                    Will we now see 20 or 50 of the lead people pushing for multiple "investigations" (read: dirt finding missions, using the FBI as a tool) under investigation themselves?  That would be most interesting!

            It takes a 2/3rds majority of the Senate to impeach.  That's 66 votes; 47 Democrats and 19 Republicans.  Or the equivalent with a few independents thrown in.

            Rather unlikely.

            The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

            Mile, that depends on what Trump of accused of, the GOP Senate will be protection for Trump being removed for other than substantive charges. That is OK. But if he goes too far, I would not rule out some Republican Senators supporting Democrats in favor of his removal from office.
