I wouldn't give Romney or Trump points for having class, but Mittens is just being a jerk here.
The current culture deviated radically from previous human experience, ruthlessly reducing each woman and man to mere political units to be manipulated, balkanizing them into communities according to their likes and dislikes, so everything from cars to candy bars could be more effectively marketed, robbing them of their privacy, denying them both a real community of diverse views and the possibility of personal evolution by censoring the world they saw through the Internet to make it conform to the preferred beliefs of their self-appointed betters. - Dean Koontz

I don't consider myself a Trump supporter, but I do believe our President needs to be given credit for certainly being more conservative then Bammy and "W".  His patriotism has been refreshing.  It is a shame that the RINO's and the left have created witch hunts and thrown out numerous roadblocks to tie his hands so he doesn't succeed.  In spite of that he's made progress on asylum, the wall and has brought unemployment to 50 year lows.  So ... in that aspect I think I'd certainly vote for him over one of the bat crap crazies running on the left.

I'm with you.

He deserves some credit and some support.

It's hard turning a leviathan like the US government on a dime. It's harder for any president to do it virtually by himself against what Trump has been up against. In three years.

Anyone who thinks Trump has failed because he hasn't reversed certain trends, like illegal immigration, welfare, etc by now is being patently unfair, to put it gently. But he is winning some key battles in court, appointing decent judges and laying the legislative groundwork for further progress.

And it would be nice if the GOP stepped up at some point.

 :amen:

FWIW, he's also starting to bring to light how corrupt the entrenched establishment really is. This may also be why we aren't seeing more push back from the Pubs.

   Good points all @skeeter

   But waiting on the GOP to step up is an exercise in futility.

I realize they've got just as big a stake in the status quo as do the rats. Frankly, I'm afraid it'll all just revert to form once he's gone. Maybe sooner.

Thank you. I like some of Trump's policies but this twitter war BS has go to stop. It is old and tiresome.  I remember when I was young that Decency was a Conservative value.

Amen and he isn't one to call anyone a pompous ass.  He is the definition.  I can't stand his childish tirades.  How could any foreign government take him seriously?  What is really funny is that he recently gave Romney his full support.

.@MittRomney has announced he is running for the Senate from the wonderful State of Utah. He will make a great Senator and worthy successor to @OrrinHatch, and has my full support and endorsement!

His judgment of "the best" has been very evidently not the best.  He fires most people he hires.  And most of them I wouldn't let step in my front door.  Not the liberal ones for sure.  Cohen, Amarosa, Bannon...………  And I sure wouldn't have liberal Kushner at the head of every decision.

No, for me it got old before he was elected president!

Trump should be doing his job. I might have overlooked his reality tv fights if he had been a serious president, but why would I vote for him next year if he didn't do squat during his first term?

@sneakypete

What are you referring to -- the court challenges to Trump's EOs or the nomination of judges? 

If you're talking about the judicial nominees, I don't know yet whether these judges are good or bad.  Still too soon to tell.  I understand SCOTUS has several major issues this term
  Let's see how they rule on these matters before deciding whether the new guys are good or bad and whether Trump is a hero or a goat fir nominating them.

And if naming decent judges is all he's done in almost four years, well, that's not much of a track record.  Had he not wasted so much time on so many trivial matters, Trump might have accomplished a lot more.

The Republican president, who launched a stream of invective at Democrats and the media this week as an impeachment probe in Congress widened, tweeted that U.S. Senator Mitt Romney was a "pompous 'ass' who has been fighting me from the beginning."

Romney, who lost the 2012 election to Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama, criticized Trump on Friday for asking China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous “ass” who has been fighting me from the beginning, except when he begged me for my endorsement for his Senate run (I gave it to him), and when he begged me to be Secretary of State (I didn’t give it to him). He is so bad for R’s!

First of all, RINOs is a misnomer.  The Republican Party has been moving left for some time.  these guys aren't Republican in name only.  They are the real Republican Party these days. 

Secondly, whether you like past Republican presidents or not, they did do more.  Maybe not what you or I would have wanted, but they did work.  They took their jobs seriously.  They didn't waste their time on frivolous squabbles, go golfing every other day or run around the country endlessly campaigning.  Starting with Obama, the presidency has become a do-nothing job.    Now Obama at least, being the community organizer he is, had others do his job for him.  The Democrats wanted Obamacare; they worked to get it.  But I don't see Trump having that.  And as for Obamacare, Obama sold that POS to the nation.  That was his role in it.  What is Trump's role in getting things done?  What is his job?  Apparently, nothing since he fritters away the hours on stupid *bleep* like this squabble. 

So please tell me -- how do Trump's endless Twitter wars benefit the nation?  What do they accomplish?  Have they fixed our illegal immigration crisis?  Have they rid us of Obamacare?  Have they given us meaningful tax reform?  Have they curbed this country's runaway spending?  Have they resulted in treaties with our friends or any meaningful agreements with our enemies? 

If you or I spent so much time tweeting BS all day, our employers would have fired us.  Since we voters are supposed to be the employers of the politicians we elect, we should be showing Trump and the rest of the Republican bums the door.    Why any voter would want to keep these lazy lumps around is beyond my comprehension.

So in other words, you can't  tell me what the benefits are to the US of Trump's endless, time-wasting Twitter squabbles because there aren't any.

No,I am telling you it is a waste of time to try to explain something to someone who doesn't want to hear it. Or even think about it.

Deflecting.  There is no good reason for wasting time on Twitter, so instead of admitting it, you ridicule me by saying I'm too stupid to "understand it."  I think that's an Alinsky tactic.  If so -- well, nice to know I'm debating issues with an Alinsky disciple.

LOL! You have no more interest in debating than I do. All these arguments were made and the dust settled long ago. You staked out your position as a NT'er and there is nothing anyone can say to make you change your mind,so live with it.
