    Looks like the impeachment vote is getting a hearty "meh" in Utah.

    https://www.deseret.com/utah/2020/2/...onvict-divided

    The poll also found 37% of Utahns less likely to vote for Romney in the next election and 36% more likely to vote for him in light of his Senate vote, while for 22% it had no impact. Romney would come up for reelection in 2024.

    Fascinating. That is encouraging.

    Mitt still has a higher approval rating than that weasel Mike Lee. That makes me very happy.

    Probably because Mitt votes more in alignment with Trump's position than Lee does?

    Oh for shame. Trump's not gonna be happy. But POTUS will get a citation, so all is good.

    Bills to censure Romney and recall a U.S. Senator are dead on Utah's Capitol Hill

    However, the House and Senate will proceed with a citation thanking President Trump for his work for the people of Utah. That is slightly different than a proposed resolution Speaker Wilson floated after Sen. Romney's vote.
    As if Mitt even needed to worry. He's bigger than all of them.
    Give 'em Hell, Cougars!!!

    For all this His anger is not turned away, but His hand is stretched out still.

    Not long ago an obituary appeared in the Salt Lake Tribune that said the recently departed had "died doing what he enjoyed most—watching BYU lose."

    Well, it's not mocking a disabled reporter or suborning mob attacks of opponents, but it is goodness.

    Did you share it, or are you ashamed of Jesus?

    Interesting column on the reaction in Utah to Romney's vote.

    https://www.sltrib.com/news/nation-w...is-judas-many/

    Utah is one of the rare places where the few Romney-style Republicans who remain are relatively safe from a challenge from their right, where speaking out against the president can be an act to admire, not an apostasy.

    With the most vitriolic condemnation of Romney coming from outside Utah, there has been something of a rallying effect around the senator.

    Can a Republican take on Trump and survive? Mitt Romney is proving it’s possible.

    At a White House event on Feb. 10, featuring the nation’s governors, Trump again turned his attention to the senator. “How’s Mitt Romney?” the president asked Herbert, Utah’s governor. “You keep him. We don’t want him.”

    Had Herbert been inclined to seize the moment to take the president’s side, he hardly could have had a better opportunity. Instead, he ignored Trump’s remarks and asked about the national debt.

    Herbert, who did not support Trump in 2016 after rescinding an earlier endorsement, was among the many Republican leaders in Utah who spoke out against the legislative push to reprimand Romney.

    . . . . . . . .

    Wilson said he still hears from “Republicans friends and neighbors who are mad as hornets” about Romney’s vote. But many, he said, “have taken a deep breath” and just want to move on.

    “We’ve got work to do. And Mitt Romney’s done a lot of great things for this state,” he said.

    Similar dynamics were at work within the state GOP, where central committee member Brandon Beckham drafted his own censure resolution.

    Romney’s vote, Beckham said, “brought embarrassment to our party” and should be formally rebuked. But he soon found that not everyone agrees. Within hours of announcing the resolution, Beckham said his Facebook page was full of criticism and abuse.

    “There’s a lot of sympathy for Romney with his statement about religion and God,” Beckham lamented. “It’s almost like he’s a prophet in the way that he’s untouchable. He can’t do anything wrong.”
    You better believe it, Brandon.

    Mitt Happens!!!

    Here's some entertainment for you: https://www.facebook.com/groups/RecallRomneyNow/

    There's some REAL crazies out there - who are 100% convinced that they are right about everything and that everyone agrees with them.

    Stand your ground. What he did is incredibly dumb.

    Oh, I did. I can't stand the crazy wing of my party. I disagreed with Mitt's vote but I think he was earnest. There's certainly room for him under the tent of the Republican party.

    I have no problem with people disagreeing with his logic or conclusions. But to say that he should be recalled for not being loyal is insane. This isn't nazi germany.

    He's like a lot of LDS mid-singles men and shares a house with a few others. I haven't been over there in a few months. It's possible he moved and got his own place.

    At the point where the dems present a reasonable alternative? Nominate Bloomberg and I'll vote democrat for the first time in my life.
