Mitt Romney (R-UT) confirmed Thursday that he will not mount a primary challenge to President Donald Trump, stating that the president will be the Republican presidential nominee and likely win re-election in I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats !

When Mitt Romney ran against President Barack Obama in 2012, he called Russia the “No. 1 She called for the entire nation to use backup paper ballots, a step that Tom Steyer, the billionaire hedge-fund manager who gained a name — and a place on the debate stage on Tuesday night — with an

The moment that took all of the air out of Mitt Romney's 2012 campaign was when, in a debate with President Barack Obama, he dug into a peripheral issue that he thought was safe: foreign policy.

Romney threw all of his weight at Obama over the relatively limited attack on a U.S. embassy that had resulted in the death of an American ambassador. It blew up in Romney's face when he demanded that Obama call the attack an incident of terror, only to be fact-checked by moderator Candy Crowley. She remembered that Obama had in fact referred to the thing as an "act of terror."

Romney undecided on impeachment, stands by Trump criticism

  Romney undecided on impeachment, stands by Trump criticism SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Mitt Romney hasn't yet decided whether President Donald Trump should be impeached, but the Republican senator from Utah on Thursday stuck by criticism that has earned him a stream of insults from Trump on Twitter. Romney said that while he thinks some things the president has done are wrong, it doesn't necessarily mean Trump should be removed from office. "I will keep an open mind until and unless there is some kind of decision reached by the House, and then I will evaluate that information at that point," he said, referring to the House impeachment inquiry.

Two Democratic activists in this swing district knocked on the door to the home of one of the big white whales of the 2020 election cycle: The elusive Obama-to-Trump voter. The 2018 midterms offer Democrats a measure of confidence about their chances of turning the state blue in again 2020 .

Barack Obama's lackluster first debate in 2012 against Mitt Romney nearly cost him the race. (CNN) The sheer panic Democrats felt in 2012 after Mitt Romney demolished Barack Obama at their first presidential debate They want their president to earn their vote and on that night President Obama fell short. For the first time, Romney surged into the lead over Obama in Gallup and Pew polls.

All of that is boring and so beside the point of what's going on in the U.S. and yet Democrats are ready to repeat that same dumb mistake. Like Romney, Democrats running for the presidential nomination believe that talking about a safe topic -- that is, a subject that won't hurt them with the national media or that President Trump can't grab them by the throat with -- puts them on solid footing.

It doesn't put them on solid fooding, and it actually puts all of us to sleep. At the primary debate on Tuesday, all of the Democrats said the same thing that war-hungry Republicans in Congress have been saying -- That Trump did the wrong thing in declaring a pull-out of Syria.

The Kurds, the Kurds, the Kurds! Even the Democrats who explicitly claimed to support a pull-out -- Elizabeth Warren and Tulsi Gabbard -- paid lip service to the idea that we had betrayeed the Kurds!

But who are the Kurds? Is there a single Democratic voter sitting at home watching this and thinking to himself, "Thank God we got to the real subject close to my heart -- the safety of the Kurds, our brethren 6,000 miles away"?

And what about independent voters?

I know the media care about this but, as with Libya, that's not going to decide the election.
