Well it’s official, another fossil in Congress is finally calling it quits. This time it’s Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch who announced in a video message on Tuesday that he will finally retire at the end of his current term — after serving four decades in the U.S. Senate. First of all just let me say that there is no reason on God’s green Earth why anyone should be permitted to remain in Congress for 40 years, or should not be gone long before they reach the ripe old age of 83 years old.
Anyway, Hatch announced that there comes a time for each good fighter to hang up the gloves. “For me, that time is soon approaching.” He went on to say, “After much prayer and discussion with family and friends, I’ve decided to retire at the end of this term.” He said he will miss serving in the Senate but looks forward to time with family, especially his wife Elaine. Hatch added, “I may be leaving the Senate, but the next chapter in my public service is just beginning.”
And who is it that’s said to be at least considering a run for Hatch’s seat, well none other than ex-Massachusetts governor, and failed 2012 Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. I find it pretty rather hard to believe that in the entire state of Utah no one can be found who would better suited to represent the people of Utah than Mitt Romney. So Utah now needs to import this loser from Massachusetts or what, exactly, a Democrat will win the seat?
As far as I’m concerned a vote for Romney is little more than a vote for those of the ‘resistance’. In case you forgot this is the guy who gave us Barry ‘O’ for another four years. He folded like a cheap suit in the debates after having Barry on the ropes in the first round, without even trying. And then in the next round instead of coming out swinging he simply took a dive. And to be honest, to this day that I don’t think that he really even wanted to win, he just wanted to run.
And let’s face it, what is it that Romney has ever actually accomplished other than to run for public office. He just keeps running for office while always being on the prowl for some cushy political appointment. And Honestly, do we really want, or need, another John McCain who’s only purpose in life seems to be to take advantage of every opportunity that might present itself, no matter how trivial, to thwart President Trump ? We need a MAGA advocate, not another RINO wannabe.
And as long as we’re being honest here, I think it’s pretty easy to see that Romney is little more than a self-serving, arrogant, elitist. His desire to serve the public interest is as phony as a three dollar bill. He serves only himself and his own rather sizable ego. He opposes those of us who proudly wear the moniker of ‘Deplorable’ because we’re simply not sophisticated enough to understand the nuances involved when it comes to being part of the global community.
So at the end of the day, what we may very well end up with here is having a guy who was born in Michigan, was the governor of a very liberal state, and who doesn’t actually live in Utah becoming the next Senator from Utah. How nutty is that? I mean, what the heck is the difference between Romney and that well-known New York carpet-bagging liberal named Hitlery? Not much apparently, as they have far more things in common than there are differences between them.
