Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, February 16, 2018

Praising Utahns' "can-do pioneering spirit" and calling out federal dysfunction, Mitt Romney launched his campaign for the U.S. Senate in a brief video Friday. "Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington," the 2012 Republican presidential nominee says in the 2-minute clip. Romney said he decided to run for Senate to help bring Utah's values and lessons to Washington.

"Utah is a better model for Washington than Washington is for Utah," he said.

Utah has balanced its budgets, while the federal government has not. Utah exports more than it imports; Washington has that backwards, Romney says in the video. Utah welcomes immigrants, while Washington sends them a message of exclusion, he said.

The video shows scenes from around Utah, Romney talking to residents over breakfast at a restaurant and photos of his family. When Romney speaks to the camera, it is from the Utah Olympic Oval in Kearns.

Here is a link to Romney's campaign site.

In Utah, 'running for office' is just a formality.

"Romney, who spent much of his professional life in Massachusetts, where he served as governor, is best known in Utah for turning around the scandal-ridden 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. He now lives in an upscale neighborhood in Holladay."

Does his home have a car elevator?

Hmmm, I wonder if Mitt, little Bob Corker and Cruz will vote to save Trump from impeachment. The mid-terms will be interesting.

Good for him.

The good governor from Massachusetts has a lot to offer Utah.

Let's be real. He's running for president. He's betting the repub race to the ethical and moral bottom will blow up in their face, and he'll seem like a good alternative in a couple years.

NOT! Another two-faced rich conservative --------. Give him time to figure out what he's for - it could all change depending on which way the wind blows and the cash flows.

I want Biden to answer for dismissing Mitt's Russia warning.
Maybe he could plagiarize a response?

Maybe Hillary can emerge from Chelsea's Triage Bed & Breakfast with a new Reset Button and we can all have a hearty fake Clinton laugh about this whole ordeal?

How about a little hot sauce and a fake negro accent?
