Utah GOP Convention Attendees Boo Mitt Romney

Utah GOP Convention Attendees Boo Mitt Romney

The delegates also rejected a resolution, 798-711, to censure Romney over his impeachment votes.

The Utah GOP convention showered their senator Mitt Romney with boos and shouts of “traitor” and “communist” on Saturday.

From The Salt Lake Tribune:

“Aren’t you embarrassed?” said Romney trying to deflect the chorus of catcalls that greeted him as he took the stage.

“I’m a man who says what he means, and you know I was not a fan of our last president’s character issues,” said Romney as delegates attempted to shout him down. Accusations that Romney was a “traitor” or “communist” flew from the crowd like so many poison darts.

The cacophony of disapproval only ended after outgoing party chair Derek Brown scolded delegates to “show respect” for Romney.

“You can boo all you like,” said Romney. “I’ve been a Republican all of my life. My dad was the governor of Michigan and I was the Republican nominee for president in 2012.”

Utah Republican Chair Derek Brown told people to “show respect” to Romney.

Romney thanked Brown. Applause began in the crowd.

“Yeah, I understand I have a few folks that don’t like me terribly much and I’m sorry about that,” Romney also said. “But I express my mind as I believe is right and I follow my conscience as I believe is right. I’m not a fan of the current president’s policies.”

Romney concluded, “We need to come together in strength and unity.”

The delegates also rejected a resolution, 798-711, to censure Romney over his impeachment votes.

    Romney talking about character is really something. Truth is that Romney resents Trump because Trump is a better man in every way. Romney is second and lower rate. Romney is an example of a poorly raised rich brat. It is all too common for wealthy people to fail their children in the way poor Mitt was failed.

“I’m a man who says what he means,”

A lie is a very poor way to begin a conversation. Mitt Romney does not represent his constituents. He represents his own financial interests. This is why he hates DJT: DJT cut off the corruption gravy train, at least temporarily. The problem was never DJT’s character, but Romney’s.

          Every link is just a list of lies, marxist311 is a paid propaganda artist.

          I’m not convinced anyone would actually pay someone so unable to formulate an argument that doesn’t consist of “show me the study,” “I read this at some pseudo-scientific leftist rag,” and “you’re stupid because I’m right.” Even the marxist propagandist mills have standards.

          @ fuzzy slippers

          With all due respect, my arguments don’t exclusively consist of linked studies which you are well aware. The sources I’ve provided are pretty good thanks, both from the scientific perspective and the content. You dont seem able to argue against the substance of what I actually say.

          I do appreciate the sentiment with regard to removing death threats, so on that particular point thank you.

          Your idea of “pretty good links” and ours couldn’t be further apart. We’ve tried to explain our stance in a thousand ways, but you are extremely closed-minded, only open to a point that meets your imaginary and quite delusional criteria; you aren’t here to have a meeting of the minds, you are here to demand we speak your language, dance to your tune. That’s why when you sit on your high horse and chortle over your imagined “wins” here, we laugh at you.

          There was NO death threat made against you–make no mistake about that. I would have to consult with Professor Jacobson over such a thing, but I am pretty sure we would report an actual death threat to the proper authorities. Honestly, though, I don’t think anyone here thinks enough of you to issue, much less carry out, a death threat. And again, to be very very clear, NO death threat has ever been made against you. What we will not permit is vile personal attacks on our commenters, and yes, that includes you.

          @ fuzzy slippers

          My interpretation of your comment toward Barry was that it was of that nature. Apologies if I’ve misinterpreted that.

          That out the way. If you don’t understand logic , reason and sources that’s your issue. Not much I can do about that. You have failed at every turn to actually engage with the arguments. You’ve hand wavey dismissed links I’ve used without any reasons why they might be incorrect nor rebutted any argument I’ve presented with any logical or coherent argument.

          As for explaining your stance sure you’ve tried and as I’ve pointed out on numerous occasions your arguments (when you can be bothered to even present one) has been flawed. Of course there have been occasions where I’ve actually agreed with you or others on specific points which is a damn site more than I can say for you when you’ve been found to have a baseless opinion. That strikes me at best to mean you have an entrenched position and at worst to be intellectually dishonest. To call me close minded when you’ve never once even acknowledged there is another side to the argument, when you continuously dismiss ‘the lefft’ from any argumentation and philosophical perspective even when that covers a whole range of views is the height of arrogance and dishonesty.

          Three “reports”, one by Ralph Nader’s people, one by the notorious CREW, and one by international loonie bin “Global Witness”. Three far-left orgs with no credibility between them.

          Here’s the Nader crew’s “ten reasons”.

          1. Trump is the most corrupt president because he hired a lot of corrupt people. Whom, you might ask? “Scott Pruitt, Ryan Zinke, Tom Price, Diane Auer Jones, Mike Pompeo, and many others”. Evidence of their corruption?. Why, they worked to reduce regulations, and they have expertise in the fields they were assigned to; that’s evidence enough in the eyes of a Naderite.

          Plus, “Meanwhile, six former Trump campaign and White House aides — Paul Manafort, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, and others — have been criminally convicted” of charges unrelated to their service to Trump, but which would never have been brought against anyone who didn’t work for Trump. To a normal person that’s evidence of corruption by the prosecutors, but to a Naderite it means Trump is corrupt.

          2. The Secret Service has had to rent rooms at his properties where he has stayed. Somehow this is corrupt, as if he chose to stay there just so they would have to do that. And various corporations, lobbyists, foreign governments, etc., have occasionally chosen to stay at hotels he owns; no evidence is given that this choice had anything to do with his ownership, or that they paid more than they would have elsewhere, or even that he was aware of where the Hell they were staying, because to a Naderite that is obvious.

          3. He cut taxes. Naturally most of the benefit went to the people who pay the most taxes, and who pay vastly more than their fair share. Meanwhile he’s still working his way out of the big hole he fell into years ago, so he pays little tax; this of course reflects on his purported success as a businessman, but how it’s corrupt, and especially how it shows his corruption as president, is left to the Naderite imagination.

          4. He’s gutted 0bamacare. How this is corrupt is obvious if you’re a Naderite. Not if you’re a normal person.

          5. His failure to sufficiently panic and overreact to the Wuhan Disease, and his reluctance to murder the economy quite so dead as the Naderites would like over it, is of course evidence of corruption.

          6. His willingness to talk about Democrat election fraud, and his refusal to pretend like everyone else that it doesn’t exist, is corrupt. Of course. Oh, and Russia, Russia, Russia, Ukraine, Russia, Census, Russia, Stormy Daniels, Russia.

          7. Russia, Russia, Russia. What this has to do with corruption, even to a Naderite, I can’t imagine.

          8. Russia. He fired government employees who devoted themselves to undermining him. And he failed to fall to his knees and worship the news industry, as all good presidents should. What this has to do with corruption, see above.

          9. He tried to influence the DOJ that is supposed to work for him, to perhaps do a little actual justice. What this has to do with corruption, see above.

          10. “He has driven racism and racist violence.” Blah blah blah. What this has to do with corruption, see above.

          Mark, we are not ignoring these “ten reasons he’s corrupt”; these are all reasons we support him. These are all arguments for him, not against him. And none of them are evidence of corruption. Most of them don’t even have any surface resemblance to corruption. They’re just examples of the insane hatred that has been poured on him, which has made even his opponents such as myself rally around him.

          I’m not even going to bother with CREW’s “report”. CREW has already proven itself to be the scummiest scum in the scum pond. I was a little curious about the Global Witness “report”, so I had a brief look at it. Basically it consists of (1) stuff about his life before politics, which therefore by definition can’t make him corrupt; (2) complaints about his daring to stay at his own property, just like every other president who had any property worth staying at; (3) the old insane leftist complaint that presidents have no right to conduct their own business, or even have someone else do so on their behalf.

          Mark, none of this has even the slightest sniff of corruption. For you to use this as the basis for a claim that “Donald Trump was utterly corrupt” discredits you.

          It’s a pretty misleading article. If you look at the full text of the NYT article it shows Trump paid those large amounts based on the minimum payment criteria but when the tax filings were then due he offset his taxes based on the credit accrued because of the losses within his various businesses. The total he actually owed the IRS according to the filing was $750. His liabilities were rolled forward so either he was refunded or rolled forward the reserve as credit.

          bhwms in reply to mark311. | May 3, 2021 at 3:18 pm

          Thank you @Millhouse for taking the time to rebut this nonsense.

          I’ve seen this tactic from other Leftist/Marxist activists in other forums. They make an assertion, we challenge it, they post a bunch of links – not as backup, but as the statement itself, and expect us to do the research: follow all the links, digest the content, and formulate rebuttal for each assertion made there. It is a tactic designed to exhaust us, not debate. I like real debate – this isn’t it. But thank you again for bringing it back to sanity.

          “If you look at the full text of the NYT article it shows Trump paid those large amounts based on the minimum payment criteria but when the tax filings were then due he offset his taxes…”

          And what’s your point?

          Did he obey the IRS regulations, or did he disobey them?

          He took all the writeoffs and deductions he was entitled to, just like I do, or like any American does who has a savvy enough accountant. If he had done anything else, you know that the Pelosi impeachment squad would have been all over him like Joe Biden on a Brownie Scout. But they weren’t which should tell you what the correct answer is.

          You don’t get to say, “He’s a rich guy, he paid a lot less in taxes than I think was his fair share, and therefore he’s corrupt.” And that seems to be your entire argument.

          Dealing with your points in turn

          1) You may have missed that in the first article provides links to each persons activities. Scott Pruit for example for his spending habits with public money.

          I would also point out that Trump was notorious for promoting political hacks and yes men to positions not for there qualifications but for the fact that tended to agree with him no matter what, Scott Pruit being a good example because he rejects the science for climate change.

          The issue with regard to Manafort et all is there strong association with Trump, and given that he pardoned them for those crimes isn’t a good indication of his stance on corruption is it. Given he ran on a drain the swamp platform he was pretty lenient to those who were convicted of corruption esque charges.

          2) Now you are being silly, Trump organisations which he has failed to distance himself from making money due to his promoting of Trump businesses with foreign gov etc is a clear breach of the emolument clause of the constitution. He made a mint from backroom deals with a select number of groups and it was quid pro quo these groups were lobbying for favours. I’m not clear why you get to pick and choose which parts of the constitution matter to you.

          3) He cut taxes for the rich, and characterising that as fair is absurd when the proportion of taxes the rich pay in the States is absurdly low.

          On your specific point about Trumps taxes there are several issues here. The first is that Trump has always claimed to be a successful business man and the tax records show clearly that this is massively inflated. The second issue is that most of his debt is tied up up with a few lenders who will want it back and it would appear that he would struggle to pay it back which is why any talk of a Trump media platform is pure nonsense, he hasn’t the money on his own to do it.

          You are also failing to recognise that Trump has already been ordered to return money for illicit use of $2m dollars via his D Trump foundation that’s a matter of record. He has already been caught misusing funds and found GUILTY. You don’t get to hand wavey dismiss that, its public record.

          4) Well what was Trumps plan for the post Obamacare world then. ITs public record that he wanted to replace it with ‘something terrific’. ITs amazing that when it comes to policy the only words Trump can summon up are hollow adjectives with no substance. Perhaps you could enlighten me on what Trumps policy platform was on health care beyond cancelling Obamacare?

          5) No you are right covid 19 is evidence of his incompetence rather than being corrupt. The US is amongst the worst performing countries in the world on all metrics for covid 19. And before you say it the UK has done very badly too, Bojo hasn’t been great either but at least he didn’t pretend to the public that it was nothing when privately he knew it was bad. Again that’s a matter of public record after his interview with Bob Woodward.

          6) What election fraud, the fraud that all court cases have dismissed as utter nonsense, the court cases where Trumps own legal teams didnt even make that claim, Odd that. The endless recounts and audits that showed no significant difference, the state investigations and federal investigations that showed nothing out of the ordinary, the ludicrous trump expert witnesses that proved to be utterly moronic so much so that they couldnt even get the state they were in correct,. Dont give me the fish net analogy. In order to make a case for saying there MIGHT be fraud you have to have something but what’s clear is that there is practically NOTHING to make that case.

          Again you seem to dismiss the Hatch act, that’s a legal requirement but no because its Trump he gets a free pass.

          AS for Russia don’t get me started, the was clear evidence of wrong doing and as usual Trump supporters claim oh nothing to see here that’s not what he meant even when the plain language suggests otherwise, even when in the background he has held back money for Ukraine’s defence

          Well his former lawyer seemed pretty clear on who was guilty, given his position that’s at least a strong hint that something was at issue. Given Trump’s character it seems entirely plausible and on that basis at least worthy if investigation.

          7) Russia, you must admit there relationship was a tad too cosey and given his failure to implement laws that he was legally required to do so that is another splash of paint to the picture.

          8) What a load of shit, how dishonest do you have to be to claim he fired them for undermining him. He fired whistle-blowers because of the wrong doing they highlighted. Again you dismiss his actions oh its fine to dismiss those running investigations into him. How do you think the US checks and balances system operates? Come on Milhouse, you can o better than that. To suggest that the people around hum and underneath him have to be drones who have to obey him like some kind of fucking Monarch is ludicrous to the extreme

          9) Again its a matter of public record that he directly tried to get his friends of and reduce sentences. That’s why there were a number of resignations.

          10) I can see why you wouldn’t think that shouldn’t be included as part of a corruption document. I’m not overly impresses by his record but I’m not going to press that point.

          I have to say it looks to me like you are bending over backwards and twisting in the wind in order to interpret Trumps behaviour as ‘clean’. If you consider multiple breaches of the constitution, the hatch act, prejudicing the DOJ, blackmailing phone calls and being caught fiddling charity money to be the actions of someone who should be supported I have to question whether you actually believe in the rule of law, and constitutional government at all. I have to say I’m disappointed i thought you were smarter than this, you normally show a lot of integrity why aren’t you applying that to Trump?

          mark311 in reply to mark311. | May 4, 2021 at 6:22 am


          There was a lot to write down so the links seemed the best option. I’ll take that criticism on board though. I’ll include an argument to go with the links in future.

          I don’t think your characterisation is fair but take the point you make.

          mark311 in reply to mark311. | May 4, 2021 at 10:35 am

          @Henry Bowman

          Well there are several threads to the tax issue, Firstly in isolation of course trying to legally reduce tax laibility is what everyone would naturally do. Of course TRump has an advantage over most people since he can afford expensive lawyers to sort his tax affairs out. From my point of view thats not overly fair when he is busy trying to cut taxes for himself and his rich peers. The second thread is that at the same time as telling the IRS that he was broke he was telling lenders that he wasnt in order to refinance himself. He has a rather stark history of shafting lenders which is why very few will now extend any sort of loan facility to him. This leads to a point about where are his liabilities because it isn’t with any American lenders is it, this is rather opaque given he has singularly avoided any every turn to give out details of his financial arrangements even though he claimed he would give his tax returns. His story quickly changed to this perpetual audit nonsense. OF course from your point of view its Trump it doesn’t matter when he lies that’s fine, just the way he is, doesn’t matter as long as he give you what you want. That’s not a great basis to run a country is it.

          I’m really not into cults of personality. Defend the policy not the man, partly because he cant be defended. The sooner you realise that the sooner you can move onto someone genuine who might provide a reasoned platform for the Right. Hey maybe its Tim Scott, he sounds reasonable, and intelligent. Vote for him not the man who pretends to be poor to get out of taxes and objectified his own daughter, who spent a year claiming that Covid wasn’t serious but then told Bob Woodward that he knew it was really bad. It doesn’t take a genius to see that he doesn’t care about you or anyone else.

        Some talk has negative value, Mark311 has excelled in producing negative value.

          In this case I wrote a refutation of his first article but found what I wrote was foul enough (in the other direction) it was best left unsaid.

          That said he actually does sometimes have something of value to say, is here engaging with us and we should be glad he is, although the articles he posted I think are worst than horse manure because at least horse manure is adding nitrogen to soil (so has some uses).

          Remember those are articles he posted he didn’t write them and he is not your enemy.

        Well Biden is a politician and has been for a long ass time. So that ain’t a good start. He certainly is not angel. He has had issues with protecting donors interests like the credit card industry and health insurance companies.

        Are there cleaner politicians I’m sure there are and Biden certainly has some baggage for sure. The issue however is that Trumps platform was draining the swamp and he made it considerably deeper. He made Biden look positively angelic.

          Dimsdale in reply to mark311. | May 2, 2021 at 7:23 pm

          So Biden is draining the swamp? With trillions of deficit on top of the ones you complain President Trump let through? China connections, corruption in the Ukraine, racist legislation all combine to make “Mr. Nice Guy” not so nice. His economic ignorance will destroy our republic.

          His history of political corruption, which overshadows anything the left tried to pin on President Trump in their zeal, Biden’s use of his son, Hunter, as his bagman makes anything you can contrive about Pres. Trump look like peanuts.

          mark311 in reply to mark311. | May 3, 2021 at 1:28 am


          Well the China connection and Ukrainian talking points don’t have a great foundation. At this stage they appear to republican talking points.

          As for adding to the deficit I’m not clear that’s related to corruption or draining the swamp. The Democrats have used these mechanisms to pay for policies they want, they haven’t hidden that, it’s been there open policy to fund various things that they think are good. You may disagree on the policy but that’s a separate questions.

          As for Biden draining the swamp. He never ran on that platform Trump did.

          In terms of Trumps own corruption I hate to say it but he was pretty bad, the list of of wrong doing was large. I won’t repeat myself though you can either explore the links I posted or not. If you want to remain ignorant about the man that’s your choice.

          Danny in reply to mark311. | May 3, 2021 at 2:03 am

          Biden abused his position to enrich his son, and abused his authority as Vice President to start an illegal (one which I would say is borderline if not actually fascist) investigation of his opponent simply for being an opponent and no if you are investigating a Logan Act violation you are irredeemably corrupt and evil.

      to be fair, at the convention 3 years ago, he did not win over the state delegates either. He used the “new” rules the party elite instituted after we ousted Bob Bennett to put himself on the primary ballot, and the good people of Utah were deceived by his slick personality and his “I saved the Olympics” to vote for him. I know that there a lot of Utahns who are disgusted by his antics, and will not vote for him again

    Ok, that’s funny.

Personally I think booing someone like Mitt Romneycare is a waste of time. It only feeds his already gigantic martyr complex. It would have been better to stage a noisy – very noisy – walkout after the censure resolution failed. Don’t let the Franz von Papen Republicans like Romneycare pretend they have some sort of mandate from Republican voters to enact the Communists’ agenda.

The GOP cannot be salvaged; you can only drive a stake through its heart, bury it and salt the earth where it once stood. If there is to be an effective opposition to Communist rule it won’t come from fellow travelers like Romneycare.

Romney did a lot of things the 4 years that Trump was president to undermine him. There was no strength and unity then. Romney did that because he didn’t like Trump. Guess what, many people do not like Mittens.

Romney not being able to defeat one of the weakest presidents in the history of this country says it all

I’ve known a local minister here for 25 years and his character is unimpeachable.

however, I would not allow him to light my BBQ or mow my lawn

character does not equal intelligence

He’s toast….that vote defeat was just to save face for the party, even by people that aren’t fans of him.

If the Utah GOP members are stupid enough to put him up to win the nomination then he will lose a near guaranteed seat to the left. He needs to be primaried if the party wants to keep that seat.

I own a home in southern Utah. I will establish residency here to make sure he doesn’t win again. I will got against him in the primary and if he wins, god forbid, against him in the general. RINOs hurt our cause far more than Democrats. Romney always does what is best for Romney. Remember him sucking up to Trump to be SoS…

Also, there was an old Johnny Carson joke about his dad really being a Democrat.

I will celebrate his upcoming retirement.

A carpet-bagging opportunist that still manages to be a wussy loser.

Remember when I told y’all what a grifter Romney was, back 4-6 years ago?

It is a good thing to see people wake up. There are very few good and decent republicans at the national level. The GOPe is nothing more than a backup to the democrat marxist party.

    Oh, I’ve been ringing that bell for ages, too. I cannot abide Mittens, and have long long been writing about what a disgusting, untethered, unprinicipled pile of poo he is (pre-LI, back on my own blog). He is a slimy smarmy nothing of a man. So he’s absolutely perfect to serve as poster boy next to Liz Cheney’s poster girl for the neo-con, progressive, anti-Trump GOPe.

    4-6? I had him as a governor, more like 20. He was a backstabber then, same as Weld, Celucci, Snow, and all the other high-ranking “Republicans” from Massachusetts.

      Barry in reply to henrybowman. | May 3, 2021 at 7:40 pm

      “4-6? ”

      I’m not referencing how long Romney has been a backstabbing self centered narcissistic traitor, rather just the time of the runup to the previous election and primary

These kinds of displays are bad for the people doing them. Romney could probably count on higher approval rating courtesy of the people booing him.

    Among some Republican voters and maybe Indies, but the point was to express absolute disgust at his voting to impeach President Trump when there was zero evidence not only that he instigated an “insurrection,” but that there even was one to begin with (notice how the leftist propagandist media has stopped calling it that? Ever wonder why?).

    Romney personally disliked Trump, which is fine, but he is so petty and ridiculous that he let that dislike color his judgement. He’s done that his entire career, as a Democrat, as a Republican, as whatever he thinks best suits his purpose that week. I would have booed Romney back in ’08 . . . because he deserves to be booed at every event he attends. He’s been on every side of every issue since time out of mind; he’s smarmy, slimy, and repulsive. There are more than a few boo-worthy pols on both sides of the aisle, but he’s up there in the top 10.

In my fiscally conservative, pro-libertarian view, Republicans will have to get past this Trump-thing to re-take the House in 2022.

I am seeing this in NJ as Hirsh Singh is getting increasingly vitriolic as he goes into 100% attack mode against the de facto nominee, Jack Ciattarelli who is an experienced, likeable, hopefully-electable candidate.

The real opposition is Phil Murphy and his minions in the teacher’s unions and redistributionist big-government agenda.

    In my fiscally-conservative pro-libertarian view, I don’t give a damn if Republicans, as currently constituted, re-take the House. Now, talk to me about constitutionalists re-taking the House, and watch me get excited. But that won’t happen until constitutionalists either seize or supplant the GOP. (I don’t use the word “re-take” here in deference to Alice’s Law of Tea.)

      Barry in reply to henrybowman. | May 3, 2021 at 7:45 pm

      It’s a good point Henry.

      Remember how the republicans accomplished so much conservative stuff back when they controlled all 3 branches of government?

      Funny how this works. They can’t stop the democrats marxist agenda in power or out. Why, it’s almost as though they agree with the marxist party.

Romney booed not only by Republicans, but in Utah, And most assuredly by Utah Republicans who are Mormon. Huzzah!

That’s gotta smart,

Stop voting for him! He is complaining about Biden and he voted to impeach Trump, make up you mind, dummy!
