Great idea! Send Mitt on a series of unimportant trips around the world. Kind of
like when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.Have a great trip,
Mitt. Take your time and stay a while. Don't worry about us, we'll be
just fine without you.
Good to see an adult represent America abroad. A welcome change.
One of my colleagues and mentors once used the term "location
revelation" to describe that fact that you gain much greater insights and
perspective when you have been "onsite". Issues, challenges, and
solutions become much clearer after having met with people "on the
ground" to an area.But there are people in Utah and in the
country that love to pile on, criticize, and mock. I guess it's akin to
the playground bully who has a big bark but really doesn't have the ability
to back it up. To them, nothing Romney does will be satisfactory.I
am a very big Mitt Romney fan. History has revealed repeatedly that he is a man
of reflection, a gentleman, a statesmen. I guess in this culture of sound bites
and 24 hour news cycles, of cynical polarism, extremists will move to reject
someone willing to come to the table to listen to others, even compromise to get
There goes Mitt, building his global image. You'd think he was running for
president or something.He's the RINO version of Herbert
Humphrey, who said, "America is a great country, where anyone can grow up to
become president....except me."
Suggestion: Be sure to take your MAGA hat with you when you represent President
Trump's administration and our country!
Now, if we can just keep him out of the country. . . It is a sad fact of life
that Romney has no ability to keep his mouth shut at appropriate times. Oh
well, he likely won't cause any long term problems, because he will say
whatever he thinks the people he is meeting with want to hear.
As I see it, they could learn just about as much from a briefing by State
Department specialists, the career experts.As I see it, it will be a
meaningless trip by two second tier political officials, neither of whom have
anybody's "ear" and whose findings will be similar to what one
could read in National Geographic or Reader's Digest.Our junior
senator was quite vocal about POTUS in the media and this is his reward, a nice
middle east trip to meet and greet second tier political officials, to hear from
local embassy officials on the situation and take some group photographs for
the "I Love Me" wall in the den/home office. All at government expense.
No serious business transacted because they represent nobody.I do
wonder if there will be vote or senate business that will be transacted while
these two senators are away that might be important or perhaps they want to miss
being involved in for the record.I really think this is not much of
a news story. Political junkets happen all the time.
Why are we letting this junior senator and failed presidential candidate
represent American interests in this vital and volatile part of the world? He
has shown that he cannot be trusted, and that he will undermine our Leader
Trump's authority whenever he has the chance.The people elected
our Leader to restore America's dominance and authority on the global
stage, after that other guy spent eight years apologizing for American
greatness. We need someone who will carry Trump's message loyally and
Good on you, Mitt. Pursing peace is always the business of the people of
Utah.I hope things go well and good luck!
I wonder if he will comment on “how sickening” he is over Islamic
terrorist killing over 300 Christians on Easter Sunday. Silence from the RINO.
Mitt Romney is not going to just be a seat-filler in the Senate. He is a good
example of what every politician should be... fair-minded and supportive of
those policies that are right, but willing to "call a spade a spade"
when necessary. I am glad that he is going to the Middle East and hope he will
be able to ease the concerns of those leaders and demonstrate to them that there
ARE some mature leaders in America.
Two Democrats on their way to strengthen foreign relations. He he
The trouble with US politicians is that they all fight to be on important
committees. Then, they ignore their constituents needs and issues at home and
distract themselves with other issues. Kind of like shopping for wheels and
stereo for your worn out daily driver, when it needs a transmission and tires.
We need our politicians, that we send to Washington, to get thing done for Utah.
I'm happy he'll meet needs of the Foreign Relations Committee,
let's see this trip parlay into some business ties for Utah as well.
