Romney votes against Trump pick over comments attacking Obama
By Tal Axelrod - 05/14/19 05:23 PM EDT

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) voted against one of President Trump’s judicial picks Tuesday over past controversial comments the judge made about former President Barack Obama.

Romney, who faced off against Obama in the 2012 presidential race, cast the lone GOP “no” vote against Judge Michael Truncale, who was ultimately confirmed to the Eastern District of Texas by a 49-46 margin.

Truncale raised eyebrows in 2011 when he called Obama an “un-American imposter.”

He later told the Senate Judiciary Committee that he was “merely expressing frustration by what I perceived as a lack of overt patriotism on behalf of President Obama,” adding that he did not subscribe to the “birther” theory.

...hmmm  I'm beginning to think that Mittens is going to be just as bad as McCain.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

I know.

These inbred country club Pubs are so tiresome. I never realized how much they've hurt conservatives, populists and nationalists until I saw Trump take office and actually try to do what he said he would do.

Ghost blew by with:
"This guy really is lost.  Someone call Joseph Smith."

Romney is a direct descendant (great-great-grandson) of Parley P. Pratt, who was an associate of Joseph Smith and who was influential in the early LDS church. Mr. Pratt had 12 wives...

I said the reason Romney is against president TRUMP & illegal invaders is THIS. I said his dad was born in Mexico, they still have LDS compounds in Mexico  I said, I am sure he still has some relatives there.  I said 1st cousins, at least. Here is proof.
Liberals here,,,the LEFTS,,want this here in USA. He address's  FAST & FURIOUS with DOJ Eric Holder & OBAMA. WHERE IS THE INVESTIGATION?  They worry about a sneeze with president TRUMP. The comment about mormons not allowed to have guns is, IN MEXICO. So many LDS responded from Utah..they had guns! THIS IS IN MEXICO! They still have guns.

And he is 100%,  correct and even MORE SO, if that is possible!  MITT has bad mouthed our sitting president, who is legitimate...and Mitt  breaking the 12th ARTICLE OF FAITH in LDS religion.  He knows about the ARTICLE'S OF FAITH. HE WAS BISHOP..at one time.  Boy...did I have it wrong about him, but it was HE or Obama.  At that time it was anyone..over obama, but VOTER FRAUD pushed in the, liar,  con artist, illegal obama again!

I totally agree! I posted a while back, when Mitt got in office, I said..."here is another McCain". Others think so too. 
Why don't real republicans infiltrate the demon-rats and vote REPUBLICAN..then!  We have demon-rats as republican's. 
This the ONLY way to keep our constitution.  We have so many RINO'S  in the GOP.

One more Mitt and maybe some judges don't get confirmed.  Any one know who the 4 Senators are who failed to vote?

Romney Votes Against Trump to Defend Obama

    2019-05-14 Source: TTN by: TTN Staff


By Mark Taylor

Senator Mitt Romney was the only GOP Senator to vote against a Trump judicial nomination. The reason being that the nominee, Micahel Truncale made disparaging comments about former President Obama.

According to Politico:

    Mitt Romney was the only Republican senator to vote against one of President Donald Trump's judicial nominees on Tuesday. And he did so in part to defend former President Barack Obama.

@Right_in_Virginia

Like McCain, he’s trying to earn brownie points with the media. And in the short term they will probably clap for him.  But if he were to ever run for president again,  they would go back to giving him the 2012 treatment

 It seems like a very trivial reason to vote no on. I would understand it more if the judge said something negative about Romney in 2012. But why does Romney feel it’s his duty to avenge Obama?

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
