    I’ll be voting for Mitt over whatever well intended soul or party gag the democrats stick on the ballot. Mitt was right about Russia and he was right about Trump!

    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."

    One of the grandest benefits of the enlightenment was the realization that our moral sense must be based on the welfare of living individuals, not on their immortal souls. Honest and passionate folks can strongly disagree regarding spiritual matters, so it's imperative that we not allow such considerations to infringe on the real happiness of real people.

    I believe religion has much inherent good and has born many good fruits.

    I wonder if SU would vote for Romney. Probably not, because Romney's LDS.

    It was really well done. No fear-mongering. I like it.

    Amen. I like a campaign that focuses on why I should vote for someone, not against someone else, without demonizing immigrants or those with different opinions.

    Mostly sarcasm mixed with a little bit of hope he does it so Mormons who do like Trump will wake up and realize he's not worth it.

    But how will he win without the evangelical vote?

    Salacious news about Trump and his affairs and alleged sexual misconduct tends to ATTRACT Evangelical votes, I think.

    Gotcha. Utah already doesn't necessarily support him and would go for ANY viable candidate over him in the next election. We'd be better off if he went off on the evangelicals so that he loses them for the next election - but I'm afraid he's right about being able to shoot someone in Time Square and many of his supporters not caring. #FakeNews.

    There was a recent poll someone posted here showing 61% of mormons approving of Trump. LDS were above most others. What I pointed out at the time was 1, that there wasn't a separate category in that poll for Evangelicals who undoubtedly would have been probably in the 80s. Mainline, non-Evangellical Protestants tend to be much more liberal. And 2, that 61% support among mormons for a GOP president is actually pretty crappy by historical standards. That number should be in the 90s for a Republican. Still, 61% is much higher than what it should be. But I agree he'd lose a Republican primary in Utah against any viable challenger.

    Sorry, didn't get teary-eyed but I breathed a big sigh of relief. It will be nice to have a a morally courageous statesman replace the deteriorating servile Hatch. Romney will single-handedly make Utah's congressional delegation no longer a complete embarrassment.

    Here a couple of small things I've appreciated from Mitt since he lost his POTUS election.

    When an old, ugly racist police commissioner for the township where Romney has a summer home used the N-word to describe Obama, Mitt forcefully and publicly called for his resignation. https://www.csmonitor.com/USA/Latest...oner-to-resign

    When president fuckhead pretended he was going to nominate Romney for SOS, Mitt did his due diligence and sought the advice of past secretaries, especially evil Killary! (who urged him to accept if offered). https://www.politico.com/story/2017/...e-trump-239370

    I'm not a republican. I don't agree with Romney's politics, but I'm glad to have a pragmatic statesman headed to DC to replace a wilted apparatchik.

    Times Square is nowhere near 5th ave you rube!

    That video makes me want to move back to Utah just to vote for him. Does that make me a carpetbagger?

    True. Romney seems to be a very honorable person.
