    Frank, you should run as the Libertarian... you would be great. I would donate the first $5 toward your campaign.

    Matt Schlapp, another asswipe sporting a Trump tramp stamp.

    These guys are running scared.

    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."

    "Pathetic" that someone would run for senate when they shouldn't have trouble getting 80% of the vote? Are they just out of touch, or is it more about being frustrated that not everyone is falling in line with Trump? Since it's Fox I think we know the answer.

    It’s hard to ignore the endorsement by a sitting president, so Mitt really couldn’t have done much differently. Still, when you’ve dissed the prez like he has, thanking him now just feeds into his flip flop stereotype.

    He will fight him plenty in the Senate. What candidate has ever said, "I won't accept the endorsement of the POTUS"?

    Reread the tweet. Mitt thanked the POtuS for his support, then pivoted to how much more important the support and endorsement of the people of Utah are.

    In other words, thanks, but this over here is what matters, so GTFO.

    I expect Mitt will make this race very much about Utah and will steer away from talking about the POtuS unless asked.

    Mitt Romney’s Mormon Mission

    https://slate.com/news-and-politics/...n-mission.html

    For Romney, though, the Senate mission is personal. Service is a key component of Mormon missionary culture. And political service is a trait Romney inherited from both his father, George, who ran for president, and his mother, Lenore, who ran for the Senate. As the most prominent Mormon politician of his generation, Romney is running, in part, to safeguard his own legacy. That requires saving his church and his party—the two institutions Romney has dedicated his life to—from the dangers of Trumpism.

    “Romney is fundamentally a Republican Party guy, a true believer in its principles, which he also truly believes are the best principles by which to govern the country,” said Russell Arben Fox, a Mormon and political science professor at Friends University. Other Mormon politicians have been cowed by Trump’s combative style and popularity with the Republican base. Romney assumes that with his reputation and talents he’ll be able swoop into Utah—as he did in 2002 with the Salt Lake Olympics—and save the Republican Party from a total-Trump takeover.
    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.

    Woot

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

    Mitt Romney will never stop being owned by Donald

    The far right folks in Utah are going nuts on Facebook. One of their biggest gripes was that Mitt wouldn't support Trump. It was funny to watch the reactions when Mitt got the Trump endorsement.

    Exactly. It's ridiculous. There is no other reasonable explanation for why someone from the same party running for Senate should get their negative attention. The reason why these guys and other Trump supporters like the Utah GOP chairman would get so bent out of shape over a prominent and very popular (in Utah) person running for Senate is because they assume Trumpism has some kind of "right" to take over the party or country, while even though at the same time realizing they're in the minority in the general population. They wouldn't give a crap if they weren't scared/angry.

    May favorite extreme right "deep state" conspiracy theorists radio guys are really mad about Mitt running. "Mitt being elected would be the absolute WORST thing that has ever happened for Utah."

    Really? Not just the worst, but the ABSOLUTE worst? Um. OK?

    They're really mad that there are at least 2-3 other candidates (R) who have been in the race longer than Mitt and campaigning longer than Mitt, but are being totally ignored by the mainstream media. Because deep state.
