The Sad State of the GOP – Nearly Censored Romney, Nearly removed Cheney, …


 

The operative statement is that Mitt Romney “nearly” got booed off the stage. Just as he got “nearly” censored by the Utah GOP party 798-711. Just as Liz Cheney “nearly” got removed from leadership of the GOP party.

Then we have Susan Collins chiming in about the absurd “big tent” nonsense. Sure, every party needs to include those who would oust by impeachment their own party President. What an absurd interview with Jake Tapper on CNN on Sunday. Of course she adds in her support for Liz Cheney. One thing for the Dems, they are prepared not only to support their senile old fool Biden to the death but follow him as he takes them over the cliff. Non dare challenge their leadership Pelosi.

Hope springs eternal or so it says. Tucker Carlson summed up the situation perfectly on Friday’s show. The coup de grâce is having on board Frank Luntz.

WASHINGTON – Sen. Susan Collins was “appalled” at the treatment fellow Republican Sen. Mitt Romney received Saturday by his state lawmakers, many of whom wanted to punish him for trying to impeach former President Donald Trump.

“We are not a party that is led by just one person,” Collins, R-Maine, said Sunday during an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper. 

Some Republicans in Utah suggested a censure of Romney, R-Utah, for his impeachment vote in January. Romney was one of seven Republicans who voted to convict Trump.

On Saturday, Romney entered the chamber in Utah to a chorus of boos from his fellow lawmakers, but the vote to censure the senator ultimately failed 798-711 in the state GOP convention. 

Does anyone really believe that Liz Cheney will be gone anytime soon? Where have I heard that before. Not unless Wyoming sends her packing, but then again rumbles are out there that she wants to run for President and take on Trump. Good luck with that.

Bonus: Note her mask indicates KN95 – KN means it was made in China… Just saying…

Gooden declared, “Liz Cheney has promised she will campaign on impeaching Trump ‘every day of the week.’ Good luck with that, Liz! PREDICTION: she’ll be out of her GOP leadership role by month’s end!”

Tucker on why you probably don’t recognize the Republican party

That’s the best from the swamp today.

    The voters know what these people are and yet they still keep voting them in! There is no excuse for the voters in Utah not to know that Romney has no real stance on anything but apparently that is what they like about him. The voters keep falling for the line about the party having to move to the center to be effective. Becoming more like Dems is not the way to beat the Dems…

    I saw most of the CNN Collins interview and it reiterated why I like now to watch CNN…for the humor. I laughed through much of it…at Tapper’s SO SERIOUS questions…at his ridiculous inferences she swallowed up, though I did like what she said about why people are Republicans; I was kind of surprised.

    Am looking at some pretty good indications …TX’s recent election…62% to the Republican…kind of blows holes in our woes about how TX is going to go Red. Not so fast.

    I watch enough TV to see MANY parents speaking out, many young BLaCks embracing Conservatism and doing something about it…seeing much better stuff than those stuck relying on the internet. Got to see the people…and they’re not happy.
    Am I saying no Americans like the goodies Biden’s pushing on us, and which Hillary just said was JUST what AMericans want!, Of course not! People LOVE goodies! But there are still enough Americans who see through it, voted against it, 70 million in November…oh, and Sept, Octo and December, apparently! (smile), and I’m hanging tight America could survive all of this because people are WAKING up to the WOKE.

    Wife had fox on over dinner last night. Since I haven’t watched TV, let alone ‘news’ for years now, I thought I’d sit through it.
    First was Mark “The Great One” Levin’s show who had as a guest Josh Hawley. “A real American” who talked about the problems with China and “Big Tech” and how we have to rein them in. Didn’t get into any mechanics of how that might actually happen or even be approached by even him, let alone the repubs. Of course he has a book that he and Levin shilled several times throughout the 20 minutes or so they did their useless lip service self-enriching BS routine.

    Then on came some guy whose whose name I forget, had a slight Australian accent I think. He had some female senator (name forgotten also) and some black dude, former military, and the two of them yapped about how the ‘problem’ in urban areas and the black youts – is lack of family. Well duh. Did they talk about getting Welfare changed so black female breeders don’t get their checks reduced if daddy(s) are living in the house ? Course not, that might have a positive effect on the particular situation. That would also assume black dads actually want to live with the women and help raise the kids…

    Telling black momma’s their babies are not going to have much of a chance in the world without a healthy family environment is like telling African savages to use condoms.

    No, the female senator with a Texas accent yapped about “incentivizing” and “empowering” these urban areas so that (I’m guessing here) something useful might actually happen since they didn’t actually get to the nuts and boilts of the BS they were spewing. Talk about bullshit bingo word salad sessions….

    No doubt there were people energized by all of these self enriching useless bags of oxygen consumers thinking “Wow, I think we are finally on to something here !” lol and pas the air sick bag please.

      We don’t watch TV here, except for movies … same kind of fiction you see on the “news” programs, but more entertaining and far more plausible. I congratulate you for being able to sit through it and actually swallow food at the same time. I may put you in for a Silver Star medal or refer you for a psych eval. We’ll see. The infotainment clique sort of reminds me of those “searching for ghosts” programs on reality TV where there is no reality and no one ever filmed, recorded, or captured a real ghost.

        Oooh, a silver star psych eval ? I think those are tthe kind with the really good looking seductress therapists right?

        Since you mention ghosts… My wife used to watch. Drove me up the wall even walking by the TV. One guy on one of the shows would frequently say “Let’s do an EVP, Do you think we should do an EVP? Let’s do an EVP”.

        Like – Let’s have a board meeting and decide if this potential paranormal event is worth the investment of 2 minutes of 9 volt battery time on a 9 volt battery that lasts probably a year in our EVP scanning device….
        Some of the shows were much worse.

      Being the cynic I am I’m always under the impression I’m the only one not watching FOX et al (I just used I’m three times in one sentence) for the same reasons you aren’t. I’d much rather piss on my own shoe than watch these booksellers patronize each other.

        There may be a post in this as it never ever changes. The ‘it’ is that politicians come on and talk about the problems, saying “we understand the problem(s) and how there has to be change. This can’t be allowed to continue!” and I’m sure lots of people listen to that and conclude “Well, here is someone finally going to do something”.
        No. They’re not. They didn’t even Say they were going to do anything. They just expressed that they know what the problem is. The correct assumption would then be “Well, hell this person Knows what the problem is but they have No Intention of doing anything about it because if they did they would have said so and they didn’t.” [Yea, they did say Buy My Book though]. Who buys those books anyway ?

    Repeal the 17th Amendment. This piece of progressive trash has rendered the US Senate irrelevant to its intended task. The Founders saw the need to maintain a robust and aggressive dual sovereignty in our Republic to prevent both the states and the federal government from going rogue. The 17th Amendment neutered that ability of States, as independent and sovereign republics to control their representation in the Congress. Senators should work for legislatures and represent the legislators as the voice of the people in each sovereign republic who founded the federal government. Popular election and specific terms in federal law destroy that power of the legislatures. Intentionally.

      There was a time when I agreed with you, 100% … but then, I didn’t know as much about state political machines. I remember the 1939 film “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,” where the boys back home manipulate candidates and votes to get their man elected. For many years, I thought, “Sure … Hollywood,” but then there was the election of JFK in 1960 when Papa Joe called in all his favors from labor and the underworld when literally gangs of thugs and union men went from precinct to precinct in our largest cities making damn sure their candidate won against Richard Nixon. Whether appointed by state legislatures or selected through the state-wide beauty contests, our system is rigged to favor the powerful and to hell with the republic. I’ve lost all my optimism.

        Politics follows culture. Our culture is crumbling because we cannot agree upon the most fundamental of truths. That being said, I chose my place, my physical place, my cultural place and my political place with great care understanding that we are creatures of community and choosing your community well is the only chance to live the life you see fit to live. That first place was the Marine Corps for many years. Now it is Northwestern Arizona. I can afford to live anywhere. I chose this place not just based on geography but more so on demography and cultural/theological and political leanings. A robust federalism is our only defense now. The hubris of the progressive movement can only be countered with a firm ‘no’ backed up by the capacity to resist. My neighbors are mostly veterans of the Christian persuasion. They hunt deer and elk. We will stand and fight knowing that our time here is temporary and our reward is elsewhere. The sad truth is that the last great hope for human existence on the face of the earth is fading away. That is the real tragedy.

      I can add the basterdazation of the State election laws have done us no favor either. The so called jungle primaries and California in particular’s process insures almost forever Dems to rule. Wile the 17th was a start, the lack of a mandate process for States have let open a pandora’s box.

    Except for reading 5 articles on the border on Sunday evening, I did not come up for air this weekend. When I heard on the morning-drive radio show (5:30-6:10 a.m.) that Romney got booed, it was good news to me. However, if there are no consequences for these swampers, this is just the perpetuation of the swamp.

        @HP
        True story: In 2005 refereeing at a basketball showcase tournament at Rutgers NB, after a game the head coach from Camden HS said he was impressed with my officiating and asked if I was interesting in officiating in the Camden area- over the rim ball not for the faint of heart thanks to the rabid fans- he could get me assignments. So not known for being especially quick on my feet, figuratively, this 5’6” white boy referee said I appreciate the offer but living in north Jersey I couldn’t get there in time. Following some games in several Jersey City HS venues refs get police escorts out of the area. Surely it’s safe to assume this is the case in a majority of the country’s urban areas.
        One thing for sure the NJ of our younger days exists only in or memories.
