Mitt Romney Wanted to Stand Out Among His Peers – Trump Accommodates Him

The Evening Campaign Update

As President Donald Trump rolls out his administration’s guidelines for Opening America Up Again, only one Republican U.S. senator will not be asked to provide input into the process.

Early Thursday afternoon, the President listed the names of Republican and Democrat members of congress who would be a part of his coronavirus congressional advisory group. That list includes over two dozen Senate and House Democrats, 21 House Republicans and 52 of the 53 Republican Senate members.

The only GOP senator left off the list? Mitt Romney, who not coincidentally was the only GOP senator who made the despicable decision to vote to convict President Trump on one of the two hoax articles of impeachment that the Democrats concocted last fall.

Cool.

Also conspicuously missing from the advisory group roster are the names of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Democrat leaders in the House and Senate, respectively.

Here are some other notable names you will not find on this roster:

Adam Schiff

Gerrold Nadler

Stenny Hoyer

James Clyburn

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ilhan Omar

Rashida Tlaib

Ayanna Presley

Indeed, not a single member of the Democrat Party’s house or senate leadership teams, or any of the four nitwits who make up the infamous radical leftist “squad” in the House appears on the roster of the advisory group.

Apparently, the President is more interested in getting things done than in dealing with hyper-partisan circus clowns.

Good choice.

    Sorry to see Mark Warner’s name on the list; he parroted the Russian-disinformation from Russian agents for a very long time. And his serf, Richard Burr, who has serious integrity issues related to stock sales and the virus, and who can’t seem to get his act in gear (must be hard, playing “bottoms” to Warner.) And “China-girl Feinstein, same, with her “complicated” relationship with China and sale of assets. And Loeffler, same stock issues (to put it mildly.)

    Let’s hope this is like the Masque of the Red Death for some, one of Poe’s more elusive stories.

    That all being said, it was really gratifying to see Mittens not even being considered. When you see who IS being included, it really is nice to see him dis-included.

    Romney is a pathetic RINO.

  3. rooster8894 - April 17, 2020

    Not sure I like the idea of all these politicians, the ones who created this fiasco, trying to fix it.

  4. Gregg - April 17, 2020

    At first glance, this list of Democrats shows me who President Trump thinks he can possibly, remotely work with.

    It is telling that he thinks he can get anything of substance from the likes of Feinstein of Blasely-Ford and 20 year China chauffer fame; Warner, de facto leader of the Senate Intel Committee; Durban of Schiff-hole countries lie fame; Whitehouse, D-RI – Senate lightweight; Leahy, aka Leaky Depends fossil; and Klobuchar aka Salad Fork and failed presidential candidate (anyone who loses to Biden is a failure – regardless of the circumstances); the rest of the Dems are only a little less abrasive, but equally anti-Trump in their own right because they ALL voted to convict Trump.

    Interesting that Dem ‘moderates’ Jones and Manchen are NOT on the list.

    On the house side, Debbie Was-a-man-sergeant-Schultz was left off, and only one NY Dem included. Also TX Cuellar, but not Gohmert, and not the Hawaiian Heroine, or the NJ Dem defector to the GOP.

    Thanks Dave for providing the list – that is why you are my go-to source.

    This failure to include ‘Mittens’ on the commission should just about seal his doom as an repub. Wanna bet he switches parties some time soon?
    What would really be beautiful is the voters of UT remove him from office. If possible.
    President Donald J. Trump never fails to amaze me with the moves he makes to keep this republic going. And he has formidable opposition, but he just keeps “trucking on”.
    Luving it.
    MAGA2020.

    1. Gregg - April 17, 2020

      Dear guidvce4,

      I remember Sen. Jim Jeffords (RINO VT) became an ‘Independent’ to caucus with the Democrats thereby changing the 50-50 (with the VP breaking ties) GOP senate to the Dems in 2001. This happened prior to the 9-11 attacks during Bush Jr’s first year when he really needed GOP senate support.

      Isn’t it amazing how every ‘Independent’ senator ALWAYS caucuses with the Democrats? I mean, why not become a Democrat? Many ‘Independents’ are more true Democrats, always supporting Democratic Administrations; most RINOs however, find great difficulty supporting Republican Administrations.

      At any rate, a Romney defection wouldn’t have any impact at this time, so probably won’t happen now. It could happen if the GOP were to lose three seats this year to create another 50-50 tie in which case a Romney defection to ‘Independent’ would probably happen which would give Schumer control of the senate.

      While that would be disastrous, it is unlikely to happen even though there are many more GOP senate seats up this year, but the vast majority are in safe red states and some Dems are vulnerable. If the senate were to flip or the house remains Dem, we are lost as a country because the MAGA/KAG agenda would be effectively stalled.

      Prediction: Trump wins 40 states in a near landslide with 52-53% of the popular vote with 350+ EV votes and the GOP net gains 1-2 senate seats and 50+ (possibly up to a hundred) house seats with a Dem wipeout in all down-ballot races. Mutt McRomney stays a RINO – we and Trump are stuck with him until 2024 – maybe Utah wises up and recalls or primaries him or he realizes he has no influence anywhere and retires due to health or to take care of his wife, etc.

        Or maybe Mittens is found in a muddy ditch on the outskirts of town beaten half to death in his magic underwear.

        1. Blackie The Kat - April 17, 2020

          …..can you say happy ending fairytale?………………

  6. Gregg - April 17, 2020

    Either of the Bushes or Ace McLame would have named at least one of the squads’ bimbos just to be ‘bipartisan’, undoubtedly with the advice of that mental-midget political ‘guru’ Carl Rove.
