Life has a Valentine’s Day message for Donald Trump and that is “go screw” when it comes to his personal vendettas. Just this week the Army declared it was not going to do any “investigation” into punishment of Alexander Vindman, Andrew McCabe skated, and now, Trump will be furious to learn, his arch nemesis Mitt Romney is home free as well. The Utah legislature has announced that it will not consider any bills to recall or censure Romney for voting to convict Trump during the senate impeachment trial. Washington Examiner:

Utah House Speaker Brad Wilson met with his Republican caucus on Tuesday to determine a plan of action for bills to censure or possibly recall Romney, after which he announced they would not seek to punish Romney, according to Deseret News.

“Many people disagree with the conclusion Sen. Romney came to, and I think what we can kind of conclude from this conversation is we’re going to agree to disagree,” Wilson said. “We understand the thoughtful process Sen. Romney went through. Many people disagree with it, and we think it’s probably time to move on.”

But Utah is going to pacify the Child in Chief, don’t want him nuking Monument Valley or anything — and certainly not the Mittens Butte. (That’s in Arizona, anyway.)

Instead, Utah state legislators will move to pass a resolution supporting the president and thanking Trump “for all the great things he’s done for the state of Utah.”

So Romney’s “half a vote” as Trump characterized it, continues to stand, and so does Romney, more popular than ever.

I am curious, what are “all the great things he has done for the state of Utah”?

What has he done for Utah? The question should be “What is he doing to Utah”! The U.S. government implemented final management plans to ensure lands previously off-limits to energy development will be open to mining and drilling despite pending lawsuits. Conservation groups has called the decision the largest elimination of protected land in American history. This group contends Trump misused the Antiquities Act to reverse decisions by previous presidents. It’s the height of arrogance for what Trump is doing. The biggest fear by conservationists is that the excluded lands on some of the most pristine stretches of the American… Read more »

Exactly right. Thanks for outlining how he’s trying to rape our land for rich people’s benefit.

Excuse me while I barf. Yeah, Mitt did the right thing but for the wrong reason. Perspective, please.

Ass covering 101…though I don’t blame Utah for this move. No way are they going to actively flip Trump off–who needs the headache?–but they also know Mitt’s approach is the future of their party if it wants to survive. It probably won’t appease Trump but that’s as far as they’re willing to go.

It’s kind of funny but when the news originally broke (about the planned “legislation”) the Utah GOP–and the legislation’s “sponsor”–CLAIMED that it had absolutely nothing to do with Mitt’s vote, that the legislation had been in the works for weeks and it was merely a “coincidence” as far as the timing. Of course, no one could explain exactly what brought on the “need” for the legislation in the first place. I mean, it would make some sense if there was some history behind the desire for a recall vote–like other Senators or members of the US House had raised the… Read more »

Much as we are focused on the Democratic primaries and which candidates will be in a good position after Super Tuesday it’s worth keeping an eye out on Utah in particular on the other side. Some state’s GOP honchos decided to appease the human shaped flaming orange rectum by cancelling their own primaries/caucuses to avoid any unpleasantness that would ensue by their having to award convention delegates to some other candidate – say Bill Weld who happens to have gotten over 9% of the vote in NH. That makes Utah particularly interesting since Weld, like Romney is a former Gov.… Read more »
