Also from the 2008 presidential campaign, remember these?...Huckabee
produced a TV ad which directly attacked Romney personally (not on issues) then
called a press conference to tell people that he was going to take the high road
and not show the ad on TV -- then he showed the ad to the reporters, and thus
the nation.One TV spot Huckabee produced had a Christmas message.
In the ad, there is a white Christian cross illuminated and clearly visible
behind Huckabee's head. The cross is formed by a center partition and two
shelves of a bookcase, yet there are no books and shelves are removed to form
the distinctive cross. People recognized it right away and asked Huckabee about
it. His response was to chuckle about it and deny it was intended to look like
a cross. It was just a bookcase he said. Later, in an interview with Meredith
Viera, she asked if Huckabee and his team had not noticed the cross in the
ad."Absolutely not!" was Huckabee's reply.Huckabee has shown himself to be dishonest and as having a particular penchant
toward going after Romney and this latest salvo is par for Huckabee's
Huckabee set his own low standard of dishonesty in the 2008 presidential
campaign, when his whole reason for being in the contest was to derail Romney.
Remember how Romney was always the target even when McCain surged ahead.
Huckabee was asked by reporters why he seemed to only be focused on Romney and
all Huckabee could come up with was that Romney was late to the conservative
cause. Of course, McCain was most well known as not being a conservative.Back in 1998, as a preacher and state leader from Arkansas in his
denomination, Huckabee was one of the speakers at a conference in Salt Lake City
where the convention topic was "how to minister to Mormons." Yet in an
interview with New York Time Magazine writer Zev Chafets, Chafets asked Huckabee
about Romney's religion. Huckabee replied "I don't really know
much about it" but then after a short pause added, "Don't Mormons
believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?" This is a well-known and
decades old dig at the LDS Church, yet when Huckabee was later asked about the
comment, he claimed that he was simply asking a question of the interviewer --
because Chafets seemed like a knowledgeable guy.
Gas prices under Obama were mentioned in an earlier comment.In the
presidential campaign year of 2008, there was a spike in gas prices that
remained above $3/gallon for 8 months. During that time both Nancy Pelosi and
then-candidate Barak Obama laid blame on the Bush/Cheney administration for
letting the oil companies write their own energy policies and thus line their
pockets at the expense of hard-working Americans.Before George W.
Bush had left office, the price at the pump was below $2/gallon. After Obama
came into office, gas prices rose again, and this time remained above $3/gallon
for over 32 straight months.I don't attach gas prices to the
@ fatherof7"I do not condone Donald Trumps behavior..."Definition of condone: Accept and allow (behavior that is considered
morally wrong or offensive) to continue.I can think of several
things that would look like "not condoning." Merely saying the words
isn't one of them.Don't believe what they say. Believe
what they do.
@karenR No I would not accept the same type of behavior from my children
that I could write a book about what I do not like about Trump. Let me repeat.
I do not condone Donald Trumps behavior and I won't waste space using
negative adjectives to describe him. He's the president. He's not
going to be impeached. We're stuck with him for at least 18 more months
and probably another four years. In the meantime, if Trump can continue to
dismantle the destructive transformation implemented by the prior administration
I will support him and I feel my own congressmen should do as well. Can we not
separate behavior from policy? Granted, if he had the social skills and
character of a Ronald Reagan, Ike or even Mitt, Trumps accomplishments would, no
doubt, accelerate.Trump' arrogance will not allow him to see how his
own social ineptness prevents him from getting more done and what we've
learned is that no is going to persuade him to change his behavior. In the
meantime, Mitt and every other conservative legislator need to stop worrying
about what they can't fix about Trump and get to the business of getting
something positive done in Washington. Give me a Statesman!
So you voted for Obama, Huck? I never would have guessed!
Romney continues to flip and flop his way to fame. It's obvious the guy
can't keep his lies and statements straight. I thought the people of Utah
were smart enough to see through his charades but I guess some people only look
at church affiliation. I am, BTW, a member too but I will never again (did it
on his first Presidential run) vote for Romney in ANY political race.
He's a disgrace to the people of our great state.
Good job Mike. Mitt is digging a hole he may never get out of. Mitt...are you listening to your constituency? I voted as a
Republican...start acting like one!
I don't like Trump personally but will vote for him because he is tough on
illegal immigration. Also he is much more reasonable than Dem candidates who are
so far into Looney Tunes land with their socialist and environmental policies.
Sarah was caught in a huge lie - one of many. In this administration you check
your integrity at the door. But the apple doesn't fall too far from the
tree...She basically stopped doing press conferences. It must be
exhausting to lie that much.
So many opinions; so few facts.
Daddy Huckabee is struggling with the fact that Romney called out Daughter
Huckabee for her "slips of the tongue" when defending Trump. Deal with
it Daddy - your Daughter is all in with Team Trump and everything that goes with
Democrats love Mitt Romney.
I don't always agree with Mitt, but I do respect his willingness to speak
the truth as he sees it and to advocate for a higher level of conduct.
@ fatherof7Karen R. here."Yeah. My kids understand
appropriate behavior and they live their lives accordingly."You
answered a question I didn't ask. The questions were:Would you
accept from your children the same behavior you could write a book about on
Trump? Did you teach them that leading their endeavors in this way will
strengthen them and the enterprises they lead?I'd really
appreciate hearing your response to the questions I asked.
Romney has the courage to say what the majority of Republican leadership thinks
but are too frightened of Trump to actually say. 80 percent of this country are
appalled by Trump’s behaviors. Even many of those who support his
politics. But it is the rare Republican leader who will actually stand up
against it. I’m proud of Romney for that. He can rest assured that the
majority of his constituents also support his courage in doing this.
@Karen R.Yeah. My kids understand appropriate behavior and they
live their lives accordingly.
Funny. I feel the same way when I think that Huckabee ran for president too.
Interesting to see the people who bashed Romney when he was running for
president suddenly turn into Romney fans. Romney just has an inferiority
complex. Trump has more money and Trump beat Hillary while Romney made a
pathetic run for the presidency and couldn't take a punch. Trump is far
from perfect, but he is far better than Romney.
''2012 presidential candidate’s '' The best predictor
of future behavior is past experience. The behavior in the 2016 campaign from
FBI, DOJ, was a repeat from the 2010 to 2012 election, i.e. government spy on
the opposing party, to learn donors, schedules, strategy, responses, focus,
plans, allies, endorsements. Not to smear, because the media needed no help for
that. But real intell about the political plans.
"Romney takes a harder stance against Trump than he ever did with Obama. I
guess his principles align more closely with Obama's. "Perhaps.... just perhaps that is because President Obama never did the things
Trump has been reported as doing in the Mueller Report. Did you possibly
consider that? What Romney is doing is the most loyal thing he
could do for both his party, and his country. He wasn't elected to be
"loyal to Trump". He was elected to defend the constitution of the
United States and represent the people of Utah in Governance of this nation.
Not one part of the oath of office he took was to be a Trump surrogate. If he
sees someone bringing dishonor to the Office of the President, it is his duty to
put nation above party.Seems many people don't respect that -
and believe loyalty to Trump is his job. The only way to bring honor and
respect to the Republican/Conservative cause is to live by the principles for
which conservatism stands to represent.Trump's attempt to
obstruct justice brought dishonor to the Office of the President... no matter
Huckabee always reminded me of the character "Elmer Gantry", a
silver-tongued preacher portrayed by Burt Lancaster in an Academy Award winning
role. Once, when gas prices were soaring during the Obama Presidency, I
received a call from a Huckabee advocate asking me what I thought of
Obama's responsibility for prices soaring. I reminded the caller that gas
prices had dropped earlier in Obama's Presidency, and asked if Obama
deserved credit then, as well as blame now. The caller could not answer the
question, and when I asked for a phone number for a senior staffer to whom I
could ask the question...He hung up on me. Mitt, so long as Mike
Huckabee is questioning your intelligence, character, patriotism or
loyalty...you have nothing to worry about.
Everything Mitt says about Trump is spot on. What makes me sick is that so many
other Republicans simply won't call a spade a spade. Mike Huckabee is a
@ fatherof7"I could write a book about the things I do not like
about Donald Trump but I could write volumes about the positive things he has
done to strengthen the country I love."I'm curious: Would
you accept from your children the same behavior you could write a book about on
Trump? Did you teach them that leading their endeavors in this way will
strengthen them and the enterprises they lead?Where are all the
conservative religious people that claim to believe that behavior impacts the
soul? Is this were true, wouldn't we see them using their influence with
Trump to demand better behavior even as he implements the policies they like?
Why is it that we instead see them flocking to his rallies, to cheer him on when
he's at his worst? Why does it look like this is the part of him they like
most?Here's something I learned while observing religious folk
in my childhood: Don't believe what people say. Believe what they do.
I voted for Romney and I totally regret that decision. So far he has been a
huge disappointment. Huckabee is right. Six years of Romney telling us how
righteous he is ....ugh.
Romney takes a harder stance against Trump than he ever did with Obama. I guess
his principles align more closely with Obama's. He probably should change
and run as a democrat.
Huckabee didn't get close, never had a shot, and got beat by Romney. So,
who cares what Huckabee thinks. Mike is the same narrow-minded individual who
has publicly attacked anyone who has different beliefs, without understanding
what those beliefs are.Trump didn't even get 50% of Utah's
votes, and has very low ethics. The report should surprise no one. Trump
can't effectively collude with his own staff, why should anyone expect him
to be capable of colluding with a foreign power.Mitt is correct.
Mitt goes which ever way the winds are blowing. And the wind blows mostly from
Huckabee is playing papa bear for his daughter and is one of the entrenched
republicans who can’t seem to muster up the courage or objectivity to go
against trump. Plus he doesn’t think highly of Latter Day Saints.
@ uncle artie,“Nowhere have I seen anyone quote the original
authorization memo or the secret scope change memo from Rosenstein. How did an
investigation into Russia collusion morph into an investigation of obstruction
of justice?”The original authorization to Mueller has been
well documented since he was given his investigatory charge. The “change
of scope” memo you refer to was not secret and is easily found on the web.
It served only to provide specificity to Mueller’s May 2017 charge. The
two unredacted elements of it were discussed at length in Paul Manafort’s
challenge of Rosenstein’s appointment of Mueller. Judge TS Ellis, the
District judge overseeing Manafort’s appeal, was given an unredacted
version of the memo and ruled in favor of the government’s ability to
investigate Manafort’s action as within the scope of Mueller’s
charge.You question how a collusion investigation could morph into
an investigation of obstruction of justice. During the investigation it was
determined that Trump tried to protect himself and his associates and thwart the
special counsel’s efforts. Mueller punted on the OOJ question but it was
certainly relevant to a thorough investigation.
I wonder how Huck feels about his daughter lying at press conferences to protect
I supported and give Mitt my vote in 2012. However, the more he comments and
expresses his public disdain for our president the less likely it is that I will
ever support his future political ambitions. I could write a book about
the things I do not like about Donald Trump but I could write volumes about the
positive things he has done to strengthen the country I love.I'd like
to know what Mitt and never Trumpers have against reducing the size of
government, appointing constitution loving judges, protecting our borders,
getting the economy going again etc, etc, etc. Mitt's diatribe as to
why Donald Trump was unfit to be president at the outset of the 2016 election
fell on deaf ears because the American people are sick and tired of mealy-mouth
politicians who promise but fail to deliver. We saw something in Trump that,
for too long has been absent in the public square - SPINE. If not for the
entrenchment of the deep state in Washington, Trump would have "drained the
swamp" as he promised. I suggest that if Mitt Romney values his
political future, he lays aside his dislike for Trump the man and get on board
with Making America Great Again.Trump 2020!!
Way to go Senator Romney. Keep up the good work.
Oh HuckleberryStill trashing Mitt because he beat you twice.Still
defending your daughter and Trump for their boorish/prevaricating behavior.Still needling Mitt, lets be honest, because he's a "Mormon".Mitt tells the honest truth.He wasn't arguing for the removal
of Trump, pay attention, don't be so defensive Huck.He's
prodding Trump to act like a dignified grown up so that he may be re-elected
with his great agenda. Memo to Mitt: Don't waste your time!Taking advice from Huck and his daughter, will not serve Donald
well.If there ever was a hanger/clinger on, it's Huckabee. What has he achieved in life compared to Mitt Romney?Be grateful
that people close to him (Trump) stopped him from his own basic instincts. Otherwise he would be in very deep water.The criticisms and
counsel which Trump's own advisers gave him, are simply the same which Mitt
was speaking of.We're all tired of the liberal media bias and
spin, and likewise, we're also tired of partial sycophant's,
defending Trump on every issue.Objectivity is what Mitt is
about...Spinning and knee jerk attacking is what defines Mike Huckabee.
It sickens me that Romney threw away the Republicans' shot at making Obama
a one term president by A) Showing his disdain for working Americans as
expressed in his 47% comment, and B) Picking a lightweight VP nominee who
failed so miserably in his debate with Biden.
I guess Mike Huckabee couldn't keep his religious bigotry bottled up
forever.Candidates generally don't vet nor endorse their
contributors. Accepting contributions does not require one to be beholden to
that person forever or to reciprocate. Were that the case, we would never hear
the end of how every decision is bought and paid for. Romney was absolutely
correct to stand up against the moral character of Trump during the 2016
campaign. It's unfortunate that more Americans didn't stand up against
the character of BOTH major party candidates and put their weight behind 3rd
party/Independent alternatives.It was pathetic of Huckabee to claim
that Romney "begged." He's the kind of man who would serve his
country if called upon to do so, even during the administration of a president
he disagrees with. Of course he accepted the invitation to meet with Trump to
discuss the possibility. I doubt he ever lost any sleep not being selected. And
in hindsight, considering how frequently cabinet members are churned, it seems
more a blessing than a curse to have been omitted.We'd be much
better off in the back end of Romney's second term right now than where we
It makes me sick that Romney getting sick about Trump's behavior makes
Take the next step, Sen. Romney. Join John McCain in turning thumbs down on
this dangerous man and his gang of enablers. It's not about party.
It's about ethics, respect and reason.
@ 1covey, so it's OK then to have a corrupt President? Have we gotten so
low as a nation?
Boberino - Farmington, UTApril 21, 2019 9:38 a.m.@utah chickI did vote for Mitt Romney but I wasn’t very happy about it.Maybe you should have taken your time to do some research chosen a
candidate on their views, rather than R & R.
Thank you Senator Romney. You are doing a great job. Also, thanks for sticking
true to the real Republican principles and not the detour that Trump and
I have not read the Mueller report, but I just finished reading an online
analysis of the report by a group of legal experts. I have some
thoughts upon this whole debacle. The House of Representatives and Senate both
did bi-partisan investigations into Russian collusion and both exonerated Trump.
Mueller's team was not bi-partisan, they all had links to the Democratic
Party - literally 18 angry, Trump hating Democrats.Nowhere have I
seen anyone quote the original authorization memo or the secret scope change
memo from Rosenstein. How did an investigation into Russia collusion morph into
an investigation of obstruction of justice? What was the evidence of Russia
collusion or obstruction of justice that might have been a valid reason to
initiate the investigation?Statements such as 'Trump may have
obstructed' or 'Trump's team wanted to collude' are not
valid. They are just spin, but those are the types of things Romney seized
upon, and to which Huckabee reacted.I believe the real fun is about
to begin, not with spin statements but with real hard evidence that will stand
up in court to prove treason at the highest levels of government.
To take a different tack : Politics has been likened to making sausage - not an
effort for those with weak stomachs. And to be selective in criticism is unfair.
Expected better of Romney, when I voted for him. He is fast losing my confidence
when it comes to issues beyond Utah. Next time, run for the State legislature if
you want my vote.
I never thought I would side with Huckabee over Romney, but I do and agree with
Mike. Romney is not a conservative and should have run as a Democrat if he were
politically honest. The sheep voters of Utah got what they deserve.
I might not necessarily agree with Romney on absolutely everything, but I agree
with him on the things that matter most: morality, honesty, eliminating
corruption, and restoring dignity to our national government. As long as Romney
stays the course, he will have my vote every single time.
Seems fair, I am sickened by Huckabee’s weaponization of his twisted self
serving version of religion. I guess that’s the beauty of free speech.
Read Mitt's comments through, word for word, sentence by sentence. Is there
anything he said that is not true, and that fair-minded people cannot agree
with?Also, as you and your family prepare to sit down for your Easter
Sunday dinner, if you had to choose either Donald Trump or Mitt Romney to have
at your table, to dine with your loved ones, who would you choose?I would
choose Mitt, but then I'm not a good example, because I share some history
with one of these two. No, I'm not LDS. But I was born and raised in
Queens County, New York, where I became familiar with Donald Trump long before
he became a "reality TV" performer.
Romney is a progressive globalist nothing more, he's no different than a
democrat perhaps worse.His true colors have come out and utahns
would be good to choose another representative for the state at the end of his
term.Trump is not easy to like, but his policies for the most part
have done the country well and that can't be argued unless you are blinded
Huckabee? Sounds familar...Oh yeah. Isn't he the father of
the woman implicated in the Mueller report for lying multiple times to the
public about the reasons why Comey was fired?I feel for him. You raise your kids the best you can, but cannot control the life
choices they make and the people they choose to be.
@utah chickI did vote for Mitt Romney but I wasn’t very happy
I am with Senator Romney.. His criticism of the Trump administration is
justified. I have never liked Mike Huckabee since the 2012
Presidential campaign and his comments add to that distaste.
Awesome petty bickering due to an administration based on lies and chaos.
You can tell a person by their friends and also by their enemies. Thanks to the
ex-governor of Arkansas for the endorsement of Romney.
So the political ducking and dodging seems to perpetuate itself in one form or
another. During the last election I voted nothing but Democrat all
the way. When I got to Romney, a Republican, I voted for him. Thought he would
have the moxie to stand up against "the dark side" of our American
universe. Thus far I am proud to say that my vote was not wasted.
None the less, the duckers and dodgers are still out there. More for
fending themselves than having much regard for the public they serve.
We want our representatives to be honest, non partisan, "tell it like it
is", and when they are/do, we attack them for being traitors. Maybe there is
something wrong with us? When our president (Trump presently) does
something good, he should be praised and supported. When it is bad, he should be
condemned and resisted. There will never again be a clear-cut candidate for
leadership. Those days are gone. What we are left with now is choosing between
the lesser of two evils.
I'd like to see Romney and Huckabee have a debate based on morality and how
it translates to Trump and his administration.That's a debate
where 35% of the electorate would be covering up their ears.
The worst kind of parent is one who makes excuses for their kids no matter what
they do. It is probably the worst thing they could ever do for their kids -
turning a blind eye when they do wrong. Rather, a good parent will reprove
when appropriate to teach their kids right from wrong.This blind
admiration of a man who clearly has some personal issue is not doing him, not
this country any good. We should be able to reprove those even in our own party
when they do wrong. When you fail to speak up when they do small things wrong,
it leads only to a path of great wrong decisions.If Trump's
fans really cared for him, they would speak up when he does wrong rather than
constantly attacking those who do speak up about it. The worst thing a parent
can do is hide from their children when the do wrong. A true loving parent will
correct their children do wrong... not make excuses for them or lie for them.
Well, Mike, your opinion has been noted and certainly you're entitled to
have it. Whatever moral, political or religious pronouncements you have made or
will make going forward are worthless, as you have chosen to stand as a trump
Thank you Senator Romney for speaking up against lies, dishonesty and the poor
example of a President that Trump is. I am sad that our president cannot tell
the truth, has been unfaithful to his wife and is a poor example to our children
and our country. I would hope that all of us would pray for our President and
hope that he would stop this behavior.
@Mainly Me,“Huckabee has it right. Mitt seems to be trying to
work both sides of the street.”There are no two sides of the
street in regards to unvarnished truth. To believe otherwise is the problem with
partisan ideologists and particularly Trumpers. Even in the face of
overwhelmingly compelling evidence of Trump’s deceit and attempts to
obstruct justice, which should sicken any decent observer, it is instead Romney
who is cast by many here to be the wrong-headed one.I am amazed by
the responses of the “yeah butters” who hide behind “but the
economy”, “but our southern border”, and “but the
Supreme Court” to buttress their unwavering support for Trump when they
should be demonstrating Romney-like indignation. I would say the same of those
who held equally deplorable support for Bill Clinton during the Monica
scandal.Right is right and wrong is wrong regardless of your
One thing we can all agree on, if you're on the wrong side of the
Huckabees, you're definitely on the right track. Meanwhile, every other
member of Utah's D.C. delegation sits on their hands as idle witnesses to
the dismantling of American democracy marches forward. Sad!
Huckabee has over time revealed who he really is. He loves to wear his religion
on his sleeve and portray his folksy nature. But he supports a President who, by
objective standards, is morally unqualified to be President, among other
reasons. And, Huckabee is proud of a daughter who routinely lies, cited even in
the Mueller Report for doing so, and shows zero remorse. I'll take Romney
any day, because while I'm not a supporter, I do believe he is trying to do
right. I just remind him to reflect on his oath of office and do the right thing
by the Constitution, not the Republican Party, which has lost its way.
Romney's criticism of Trump is exactly right. We need to get Trump out
of the white house in 2020..
Romney is doing what he should. The Trump White House is a disaster. Yes, some
policies and outcomes have been good, but that doesn't mean that it is ran
well. Dishonesty at the highest level should not be tolerated. One
of my biggest complaints with Congress is that many members seem to align with
party more than anything else. They stay on their side calling out the other
like it's evil (it's not). Romney is setting up himself up to be
someone who can actually broker compromise with the Dems. He's not so
blindly sided with his party that he ignores blatant red flags. He applauds some
Trump policies while rightfully calling out appalling behavior.
If Romney is 'sickened' by dishonesty, why is he in politics ? Romney
seems to be very selective in his choices for opprobrium.
An interesting note. If you remember, during the 2016 campaign, Mitt Romney was
very critical of Donald Trump. This led to Donald Trump making very vulgar
comments regarding meetings that he had with Mr. Romney during the 2012
campaign. Gov. Huckabee's statement is much tamer (and not
vulgar), but the use of 'begging' seems to be in reference of things
that Donald Trump had said.I applaud Senator Romney for standing up
and expressing how he felt. His oath is to uphold the Constitution. His oath
is NOT to follow the party line. This is NOT a Republican or
Democratic party issue. This is about our country.
I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by
individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President,"
Romney posted."I am appalled that, among other things, fellow
citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia —
including information that had been illegally obtained; that none of them acted
to inform American law enforcement," Romney wrote.It sickens me
to see 1/3 of the country throw away their patriotism, morals, and Christianity
for the sake of Donald J Trump.

The thing that bugs me here is that Mitt doesn't have to make these

Romney should stay with the Reagan doctrine: If you can't say something
positive, keep silent.
I went to Huckabee's twitter feed because I was curious to see what his
statement of reaction to the Mueller report was to compare. Turns out that his
twitter feed is a hate-filled series of rants against various people and groups.
His tweet about Romney was just his rant of the day.
Water Rocket: Romney has not seen more of the report than the
public. At this point the same version available online to the public is only
version to which Romney has access.
Huckabee is a wolf in sheep's clothing who supports his daughter while she
tries to make like Trump is honest. Romney has supported Trump when he thought
Trump was doing good, but he has the courage to speak up when the occasion
warrants it. Remember that Romney has seen more of the report than the public
Huckabee is trying to tear down a brave man who stood up against a corrupt
administration. Hopefully more will find the courage Senator Romney did and
speak truth to power while they still can.
I was wondering what Huckabee thought about his daughter going down in history
as one of Trump’s greatest enablers. Now I know.It’s
amazing how many Washington types are willing to give up their entire
reputations to support the Trump train wreck. I guess they deserve it.
I agree with Huckabee.
There was a time when I felt that Mr. Huckabee made sense. Over time, however,
I have found it necessary to change my mind. And finally, his daughter’s
performance as White House spokesperson has caused me to question my sanity
regarding my initial judgement.
I'm a Trump supporter, and I agree with this message!
Funny, it makes me sick that either of these two were once serious contenders
for the presidency. Actually, it's not funny; it's sad.
Huckabee has it right. Mitt seems to be trying to work both sides of the
If Mike Huckabee doesn’t like Senator Romney for things Romney believes
about President Trump, Romney is on the right track.

Mitt Romney seems to have a knack for weighing in on the wrong side of
everything. I sure wish he would think first before giving his opinion. In
this context, I am not sure why he is commenting at all.
Huckabee is 100% right!
Well I guess we know where Sarah got her moral compass from. The
idea that a "man of the cloth" would exchange his values rather than
accept that President Trump may have a few flaws.... it amazing to me. Every
President has had flaws. Carter - fundamentally an honest and decent man, that
didn't translate into a great leader during a very hard time.
Reagan's term was tarnished with Iran/Contra. Bush No. 1 - went back on
his "no new taxes" pledge to try to balance the budget, Clinton - need
we say more, Bush II - turned his back on the financial hard cores to keep
American banks and industry solvent during the financial crises, and Obama
crossed one to many red lines.I would take Mitt over Huckabee in a
nano-second. I would rather trust a man who stands by his convictions rather
than blindly accept what is plainly detailed in the report. He and his
daughter... two peas from the same pod.
Evidence of Huckabee’s hatred of Romney goes back to the 2012 campaign
when he attacked Romney’s religion. This anger comes from deeply held bias
against the Church of Jesus Christ. Romney chose country over party
and he should be applauded not shamed.
Mitt Romney is very disappointing.
Mike Huckabee. Father of main Trump enabler, Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
Trump's documented, by independent sources, to lie at least 12 times a day,
publicly. Sarah has a career defending his lies. Not exactly a moral platform to
be criticizing Romney.
Huckabee's comments were way to nice.
I agree 100% with Huckabee! lol, Romney was literally begging to be Secretary
of State - now he’s sickened by Trump again. Give me a break. Romney’s comments cannot possibly be sincere. He just needs to go away
- his 6 year term cannot end fast enough for me.
I'm glad Romney spoke the truth about the President. I can't
understand how anyone can realistically support Donald Trump. He is so
thin-skinned and immoral.
