Fresh update on "mitt romney" discussed on POLITICO Playbook Audio Briefing

"An unusual confluence of factors have brought back a climate change fighting policy that many Democrats saw politically toxic, the carbon tax, while the idea has long been the favorite tool of economists like Janet Yellen, Republicans like Mitt Romney, and the American petroleum institute, the Biden White House has always avoid pricing carbon. The president's deficit both the general politics and the specific fact that a carbon tax could violate the president's pledge not to raise taxes on Americans making under $400,000 a year. Instead, by then placed his faith in the clean electricity performance program, doctored by senator Tina Smith, which would pay utilities to shift to clean energy and find those that didn't. But the CEP now seems almost dead, a casualty of reconciliation grim Reaper Joe Manchin, proponents of the plant say the mansion, despite his public opposition to the Biden version, spent weeks engaged in negotiations over a modified CEP that was friendlier to coal and natural gas, but eventually declared it unworkable. A search familiar with the talks said, Manchin and The White House were negotiating on CEP. And mention was into something, likely a lesser version or a watered down version, but still something, and then he decided no CEP at all. So it's not like he had always been against it. That was a new position. Now The White House is looking to meet targets without CEP. Sack Coleman, who covers the issue closely for Politico, told us that while his sources say that CEP isn't technically dead, an assessment shared by a top White House official, the fact that Manchin, who talked about it over the phone on Monday, isn't actively offering ideas for how Democrats in The White House could make it work for him is just as problematic, so the source close to the talks. Basically the question is can The White House revive CEP in some form? The answer from Senate negotiators is that it's unlikely in civil progressive Democrats are happy to have a shot at resurrecting the carbon tax, which is supported by democratic senator Ron wyden, Chris Coons, and Brian shouts among others when democratic senator involved with the climate negotiations said that a carbon tax was still in the mix and that we are getting pretty close to a deal. Majority leader Chuck Schumer has previously told senator whited to make sure that any carbon tax complies with Biden's $400,000 tax pledge, which could be accomplished by semi rebates back to consumers. Enter Kirsten sinema, the return of the carbon tax has also been facilitated by the Arizona senator, whose revolt against some of the other tax hikes in the Biden plan forced legislators to come up with additional options. Those include a few on carbon, which widen, it was Senate finance chairman is in charge of writing the tax provisions, was happy to put back on the policy menu. AP also sees things headed toward a carbon tax as well, building that a middle ground proposal after the demise of CEP could include widens quote tax credits for energy producers that reduce emissions and pollution fees to be paid by industries for every ton of planet warming carbon dioxide they emit. Finally, CNN reports that meeting himself broke the news to Smith that the west virginian couldn't back any form of CEP. Smith told CNN. He told me last week he just didn't think he could get there on the clean electricity program. For rolling back to CEP, which is a foundation of the president's action plan, that's a huge concession. The question on my mind is, what are we going to do instead? She said senators are now considering a carbon tax. But CNN also added this rather important caveat. It's unclear if Manchin will support that. Democrats today are expected to reveal a scaled back version of the party's proposal to use the IRS to crackdown on tax cheats. The move scooped by Washington Post Jeff Stein comes after the banking industry and Republicans called foul, suggesting the proposal would be a gross invasion of people's bank accounts and privacy. The change according to The Washington Post. Initially, the department of treasury and Senate Democrats had proposed requiring financial institutions to provide information on bank accounts with the more than $600 in annual deposits or withdrawals. The new proposal will instead require the provision of additional information for accounts with the more than $10,000 in annual deposits or withdrawals. Here's what's up in Washington today, starting with The White House. And 9 30 a.m. eastern, president Joe Biden will receive the president's daily brief. At two p.m., Biden and vice president Kamala Harris and treasury secretary Janet Yellen will meet with House progressives in the Oval Office.

The Ruling Class Is Demoralized

"The ruling class is getting demoralized. They thought the implementation of Biden. Let me say that again. Not the election, but the implementation it was the most interfered with election, an American history, $400 million from Mark Zuckerberg, from the center for technology and civic life. The interference from big media and tech companies into our last election Biden was implemented. They also thought that their posture and the authoritarian turn post January 6 would result in conservatives and just regular Americans backing down. They thought that we would be giving up that we would be suing for peace. Instead, conservatives have more energy, more activism more resolve than ever before. You see the leaders of this slow motion revolution that we are living through. Envisioned a much different state of affairs. They envisioned conservatives, not showing up to school board meetings in massive numbers, but instead, trying to do some soul searching and looking for Liz Cheney or Mitt Romney to lead our party. They envisioned conservatives doing what we did after John McCain lost in 2008, which was let's go to the middle. Let's try to become more moderate. Now there was a temporary moment when the Tea Party rose up, but the Tea Party was squashed by both establishment Republicans and the media. In a variety of different ways. You see the ruling class right now, they are losing faith in their own project. The ruling class is realizing that this is not like storming the Bastille. You have to keep on winning

I i've been talking in this last year the plague year about hope and about the idea that i believe that The good part of what. We've been enduring Is that many people formerly asleep or waking up. I have been a excited to see a lot of that. People who Realized when things get this bad maybe they should pay attention. Maybe they should change their opinions on things. So i have hope Do you do you have hope. Where do you see things from here. I do have hope. And i. I have a long epilogue because the book was written before two thousand twenty one but i have an epilogue and one of the things that i'm very hopeful about. Is that the traditional. Republican party is starting to metamorphasized. In other words. There were a lot of americans believe in many of its principles but for variety of rational and irrational reasons. They didn't want to be part of the party of mitt romney. For example a decent man nice guy but in their mind representation of a very elite person. That was not concerned when he gave that. Talk for example. Why can't do anything with a forty seven percent all takers and wrote off that part of it. So what i mean in particular is when you see the border crisis and then you see that mexican american communities along the borders are electing conservative representatives. Because they say that's not what we want destroying our communities or where i live in the san joaquin valley california people who are mexican american are saying. I'm not going to be taken for granted anymore. And maybe i'm going to. I'm going to vote for a republican. Because they're not the party of the golf course only

Matt Boyle: We Are at War With the Radical Left

"Is the biggest obstacle. The left is going to be the left. The democrat party has become the most radical it has ever been since it created the kkk but the gop just hasn't learned the significance of what happened in two thousand sixteen and it sounds like to me. President trump agrees with that assessment. Yeah look and that's the point. Is that president. Trump was zoning on all these republicans. Whether it'd be lindsey graham. He had a lot to say about him. He had a lot to say about mitch. Mcconnell mitt romney he calls them little. Ben sasse right like all these other characters so i highly encourage people go read it. But here's the point is that the big picture is these establishment republicans whether it's those ones are other ones in the house or governors out certain blends. They don't understand that we are in a war here with this radical left that you speak of their for what kind of country we want to have this culture war. It's a political war. It the there are two visions and why only one will succeed either our vision or their vision. There's no compromise when people like this so we need to we these republicans to start acting like right like president trump gets it in there by the way and that was the other thing. President trump did praise a lot of republicans during this interview to he spoke very highly center. Hawley of senator haggerty And several other republicans around the country but those two in particular. He was very pleased with. But i'm saying is that there are there are a lot of republicans who do get who do understand that we're in a war and they are fighting but the problem is these establishment. Republicans don't seem to get it. They use the wake up. Wake up and realize that the if the left wins they're gonna crush us

Elise Stefanik: From Republican Moderate to Trump Favourite

"Coming leadership ouster of liz. Cheney is about much more than the sacking of the number three house republican it is an unconditional surrender by one of our two major political parties to former president trump. And his big lie that the twenty twenty election was somehow stolen. Cheney's crime is not that she isn't conservative. It's that she's not conservative as defined by today's republican party which apparently means unquestioning loyalty to the defeated former president. She stands accused of telling the truth that the election was not stolen and for criticizing trump citing the january six capital interaction. This episode is just the latest chapter in the party's purging of its legacy the bushes the mccain's the romney's and now the chains names that appeared on eight of nine presidential tickets for one thousand nine hundred eighty two thousand twelve all now. Essentially excommunicated by the party's base and leadership and for one reason only the message go along with donald trump and his lies or just go away. Will this help. Republican election prospects in the short term. Perhaps but what does it mean for. Democracy when a great political institution refuses to accept free and fair election. Results and rejects. Its own who choose principle over party. I have heard from members concerned about her ability to carry out the job as conference chair congresswoman lizzie cheney facing a vote as soon as wednesday to ouster from leadership after criticism of donald. Trump's big lie at the election was stolen and his role in the capital attack. We will not forget what happened on january six and that the single greatest threat to our republic is a president who would put his own self interest above the constitution sherry me writing in the washington post this week. The question before us now is whether we will join trump's crusade to de-legitimize and undo the legal outcome of the twenty twenty election. The house republican leaders have answered. That question you know i. I've lost confidence boosting. New york's elise stefanik who trump has endorsed. My vision is to run with support from the president. What they're saying is if you don't go along with the big lie. You basically need to go so phonic voted with president trump. Just seventy eight percent of the time.

"Him with the video as Mitt Romney knew he would and who else will take a swing at him there been several other people pendants except read that have already done that I think is far as him being reelected already said this he's still got that Pat of years I can't imagine that he that won't happen for for him and then we move on to whatever is next Sean Hannity said the Democrats put the country through hell for three years and he called Romney a diminished big year a diminished figure in watching what he had to say he said the petty irrational rage filled trump hating Democrats and their state run media mob allies have absolutely nothing to show for their three year never ending do nothing for the American people hate trump temper tantrum that was vintage and heavy he said the president one again and the bitter Democratic Party the mob in the media look at what they've put this country threw for three long years al absolutely nothing they have done for you we the American people but he did say the battle of the dems is an over saying that the Republicans have to finish investigating the origins of the Russia investigation the Ukrainian phone call whistle blower and other matters so it's interesting intron saying that it made me think I think this actually goes away there will be a push for some to find out more about the whistle blower that whole thing but I don't I don't believe as we move forward in the speed that were moving with the Democrats out there with the president doing rallies here in there and that will ramp up even more I think this will get shoved aside and it's something the Democrats I don't think want to be shoved aside but he was acquitted and this fans the flames of course of the base anyone would know that and if I were a Republican strategist and specifically if I were running the president's reelection campaign of course this is on another knock on the Democrats and clearly that's what Sean Hannity is saying Mitt Romney he says the difference between Romney and Donald Trump as Donald Trump fought every single day was tough and tough enough to win I do have to say ready you agree with Mitt Romney or not I do believe absolutely he had a I think he did struggle with what he was gonna do and he felt that it was wrong and he felt that as he said there but it was because of Biden any got hot under the collar about that and that was the whole idea the reacting acting back to bite regardless it's an acquittal it is not an impeachment it is historic that Mitt Romney sided with the Democrats crazy crazy times my friends of as we sit here my name's Kate Delaney and I've been doing this show for fifteen years I have never seen anything like this we've been through all kinds of things politically speaking and in the many many other ways because look this show is about you this show is about expression and especially through the miracle of up the mail bag because so many of you overwhelmingly email me with opinions on everything and that's the deal we were we we're not just one way going down one road constantly here but we have been driving the car in this direction for so long now it's so crazy the tsunami of nonsense that comes out of ease see that just washes through the rest of the country in every nook and cranny that's the only consistently and this is why I say this no matter how you feel about whatever process we have a big election coming up I hope you're registered to vote because to me there is no greater right and I've got on the soapbox before I've been to foreign countries were I saw ballot boxes being stuffed and guys with guns they were ready to shoot people that weren't ready to cooperate and this was in Mexico and I have been in other countries where they also have a weird press about voting it doesn't feel free form and that was in Ecuador where you can't leave the country if you don't vote so they're pushing you like you after vote you'd only the country going your little shopping sprees or whatever to Miami and I'm not kidding about that the the idea here is folks were frustrated with what's happening on things that aren't getting done things are getting done remember it starts locally and then state wide and then course you go to who represents you in the state and this is been tying up a lot of what we need to be looking at here's what Mitch McConnell had to say about the impeachment process except this impeachment climb they were defending norms and traditions in reality it was an assault maybe not missed both its McConnell never okay Mitch McConnell is your heard there you know talked about this the situation where he can kind of just Dodge the the question by the way on on the president the whole Ukraine thing but obviously he didn't want to go as far as it did and it felt like that was part of the problem in the first place that we that that it should have happened that we should have been there so Schumer and McConnell who have been clashing a lot lately that Lee clashed here right from the very beginning of this and that's pretty clear by what you heard with met you know McConnell McConnell new this is it I'm I'm right in the car and I'm gonna ride it over Chuck Schumer said if I have to and and I know all get that backing and he certainly did Schumer thinks that McConnell and the majority of his majority will pay a big political price for refusing to grant Democrats the requests for new witnesses and evidence and he's pointing to polls still after the fact saying that the American public strongly favored a fair trial and that's not what happened so you know McConnell says went on to say that in trying to achieve an outcome that helped him win the Senate that was you know he told reporters that Schumer is trying to make that happen and that's why it's so their relationship couldn't be more strained and the behind the scenes maneuvering started way back in December and even when they met privately which they did meet privately McConnell was not backing away from what he called the Clinton model of the beginning of the trial and postponing a decision on whether to add new witnesses or evidence so here's the deal it didn't happen there were no witnesses there were no documents none of that that they wanted to have happen happen meeting the Democrats the the process is over the president is acquitted and now the move as I've said several times is in the battle to be reelected for many of the people who represent you and for the president whether he gets reelected or one of these Democrats get in their pleaded shades who Biden says is to an experience or Bernie Sanders or whoever ends up going up against the president and we don't know who that's going to be yet because they're just the beginning of the process very small all screwed up the Iowa thing was in fact is not really official official is there like at ninety seven precincts reporting now at this point and so what a nightmare that wasn't just because they technology that they got an app that it wasn't tested it and it didn't work there were problems with its own that's what it led to all right coming up on the flip side the yeah we're going into the man cave you want to go there we had a parade yes of the cheese and with us what is US as a foundation this is the future is a bond that right now the bond is three and we need a place that could make it home from diabetes prevention to safety around water the Y. fills the gaps in pages are device can't do it without the only today because where

"Happy new year everyone. Welcome to pansy politics. We're so happy to be back together at the microphones and back with you. And hope that you had wonderful holidays today. We're going to be talking about the government shutdown about how we think the media is perhaps volving in ways that were supportive of and mitt Romney's op-ed about President Trump. And then we're going to share a fantastic, and I think highly relevant conversation with Tabitha Eisner about her run for congress. We're also going to be sharing her concession speech during what she cried. And while watching I cried, please exit price before we dive, we wanna make sure that you have planned to be at the women's March in Washington DC because the evening before we are going to be having a very special event that involves ambassador Swanee Hunt. He's been a guest on our show before. And a number of really interesting women who are working. Hard on women's leadership in Washington. We will have more details on that soon. But plan to be there. We also wanted to give you a little sneak peek of Tuesday's episode. We are so excited to be sharing our conversation with an focal of the podcast. What should I read next about building a really positive and empowering online community, and we can't wait to share that conversation with you on Tuesday. Sarah, I would like to just file the shutdown in Beth's file of wrongness because every time I believe that our elected officials are going to step up to the plate. And accomplish something I improve in incorrect, and we are now in the most pointless government shutdown of all time this morning on Instagram. I shared my new Christmas coffee mug, my mother-in-law gave me and on the side of just says people am I right. And I put on Instagram, and I said, this is my fish analysis of the government shutdown people. Am I right? I mean, what is happening? Why is there not more frigging out about this? That's sort of my main kind surpr-. Size. I'm not surprised. He's pigeon. If it over his wall, I'm not surprised. They're not budging. I'm just prizes. Not a bigger deal. It seems sort of is it because it's over the holidays. I dunno. It just seems like it hasn't been that big of a deal, which is concerning because it is a very big deal. I think it's time of year. I certainly part of it. I also think that there's an element of it being a partial shutdown, which makes the impact of it more complex to assess. I thought it was really helpful. We shared on Instagram. One of our listeners who works at the FDA shared this really concrete example of the impact of the shutdown at the FDA, but you don't get that kind of tangible impact three reading news stories about it. It's just it kind of sounds like he's being a pain about the wall. And the Democrats are saying no funding for the wall. And it just kind of sounds like nothing, right. Just the same old stuff that we've come to expect. But when you hear some of our meat inspectors are having. To work without being paid or aren't working. Then you can understand better that this is a real thing. With real consequence. Timing is definitely a part of it. The partial shutdown is part of it. I do suspect that the coverage will change and the dynamics will definitely change because as we are recording on Thursday January third. The new congress is being sworn in Nancy Pelosi is being sworn in again as the speaker of the house thought, this was really interesting. It's only the second time in history that a speaker of the house has returned to power and the way that she has. It was same Rayburn from Texas. I think it was the last the last speaker of the house that came back as speaker, and sort of triumphant return, I would say, and it changes, the dynamics of congress dramatically. The new house is passing new rules how govern the house. They're trying to change some of the way that congress people interact with lobbyists. I think there's a a far left wing of the house. That's just. That they view the way to govern completely differently. I think it's going to be a breath of fresh air was reading this morning that some of them are going to record every conversation. They have with a lobbyist and put it on the internet, which I thought was fascinating..

"The warns announcement and the reaction to it. And even the fights between Bernie broS and the Beddoe of broS out there. Do you see this sort of becoming a prophecy is is the Democratic Party heading kind of in that direct? Action firmly or do you think it's more still an open question? I think I think the Democratic Party particularly insurgent elements in the Democratic Party looked at Trump's nomination, and the general kind of lack of control of the Republican elites that allowed that to happen. And you know, some of them thought, oh, dear God, what a disaster. But a lot of them also thought like, well, we could do that. And I think that's that's one reason that that we're seeing you know, to my mind, an interesting more kind of a broader assortment of us coming up in these initial candidates in the people initially be named as potential candidates. You know, this sort of rise of the of the democratic socialist wing the rise of I think more aggressive progressive wing in the Democratic Party. It's it's it is all you know, the the end of control by the. Elites this this. Mitt Romney bed is is the counterpoint to this. Right. Romney is a patrician old school rich white dude elite guy, and he's he's the one who's saying let's do civility. And it's you know, I think it's actually a legitimate point to say the breakdown of these gatekeepers the the sort of end of the elite. Is is you know, it does have good effects. It does have the effect of letting people whose voices weren't heard get out there. It's just in the case of the Republican party. I think the the sort of weird quasi non elite to emerged as a hybrid out of that process. Donald Trump was not good. I think the Democrats can easily see the same thing a weird quasi non elite hybrid wildcard who will be populist in bed. Well, who do you who do you think if a on the right, though, I mean, you know, there is the progressive democratic caucus or whatever the socialist Democrats merica who are clearly insurgent. They are the, you know, they present themselves as the voice of young people of diverse people and occasional Cortez's clearly like the embodiment right now. Although other people are going to be moving into that space as well. Is there anything on the right? That is interesting. I mean, we have our pals. You know, the the guys that we've been championing particularly just in a mosh, and then Thomas Massie and. And ram Paul and a couple of others. But it's a mosh. I think is the kind of standard bearer of that. But you know, the Republican side of does not seem to have a libertarian wing that is worth shit or is even putting up much of a fight. And then beyond that, the really doesn't seem to be any kind of coherent new philosophy. They really argest kind of chugging along, and they take whatever Trump wants. And then they pretend that that's what they've always believed. But is there an insurgency that is like eight not even younger per se..

"And even Trump is not doing this in any in any way, other than at the most atmospheric high atmospheric rhetorical way, saying like, we've got a shutdown the press, we've got a shutdown this we've been shut down that they're not taking people's passports, etc. Anything like that? And right there you see the limit of mitt Romney's vision. But also, the I think the veracity of his tone stuff like this is just the way to kind of say nothing and seem as if you're being presidential. I want to know what mitt Romney's going to do about the goddamn budget and about the debt, you know, more than I want to know whether or not he's going to be a nice guy. He's in the Senate as a Republican. So he's probably vote for stuff that Mitch McConnell tells them to vote for. Yeah. And that's I mean, I do think like he I think he's he's being pretty clear here. Like, he doesn't. I think that's the priority. He's he's he'd sat down he did himself like a racy chart or something. Probably. And he was like here's what I can do while I'm in DC. And so let me push back on what Nick says just a little. I think you're right that we place too much emphasis on kind of the character of the president is like as being immoral leader in certain ways on the other hand, we should expect more from the president. I think than we're getting from Trump and Romney is saying these things is saying policy kind of doesn't matter right now character does because Trump's in office and the discourse in our politics right now looks the way it does enlarge part because Trump is is the central figure in it. And so plays a huge role in dominates political discourse and changes, its tone and character and has made it difficult to talk about policy. I think made it difficult for people to have those conversations in part because trauma down. Lately out of it himself, and is so I really does not. Come on. You're telling me congress. You know, what did they do about DACA? You know, he told them you've got six months come up with some fucking Bill and put it across my desk. And he basically said that he would you know, he would sign anything. And but he didn't never did. They did. There was part of what they did. There was did not. They did not put anything on ESPN has they couldn't figure out what she was gonna sign and they said, we're not gonna status something force. It force it. I mean like your act like congress, congress is more powerful than the president. You know, they did not actually create legislation. They're the ones who have to write the budgets and pass the bills let the president Fito stuff. I'm just saying like again, and again, we keep coming back to and this is I think it's it's a serious problem. That can't be addressed by you know, kind of the discussions that we're having now. But you know, it's oh, well, we don't know if the president will sign it. So let's just not offer him anything. Let's actually muscle stuff through the the the house of representatives are the. Senate that's got to finance. Mitt romney. It's good. It's a good thing for Mitt Romney to be pushing that kind of leadership rather than these anodyne gems about civility and agreeing disa- were where where in favor of of Nancy Pelosi now in charge of the house standing up to Trump and saying here sign this you should do this. And that. Certainly having her actually pass legislation and debate legislation. I agree. I mean, and she's basically making this argument that that the house that the Congress's Coequal branch and needs to stand up to the president and has not under while Republicans have been in charge of both branch.

"Way, he goes about his business the way he expresses himself, both privately and publicly is just all temperamentally almost exactly the opposite of Mitt Romney who either. Oh, when I was I was researching that piece I talked to a couple of people who had worked with him who knew him, and what everybody said was that he was incredibly decent sometimes very slightly distant and aloof, which again, kind of understandable, given that the guy's worth a quarter of a billion dollars in his spent most of his life kind of in elite society, but really incredibly decent and nice in that that was actually the thing that he was good at was was being like, a sort of smart clever decent nice person. And so, you know, one of the kind of sub arguments that piece I'm not sure I made it explicitly, but sort of one of the things that I came away thinking was that Mitt Romney, you know, sort of is maybe as an great when it comes to kind of as ideological policy decision making. But he is somebody who has done really well in the business world and has been kind of I think a force for good overall a force for for decency and transparency within his business within his business life. And I think he is trying to bring. Some of that sort of personality driven ideology, if that makes any sense to his I'll comes close to making sense. They'll give me that look Katherine Katherine is giving me a Peter. You've started on the wrong foot. I am striking that phrase from your piece, I feel like you're just editors look here.

"Mitt Romney taking shots of the president is not new but of laid it as been in two thousand eighteen thanked the president for his -dorsements. That's January in December is use me. I guess in January one he takes shot one. Well, this is a pathetic attempt by Mitt Romney relevance. This. This is a guy who comes to Washington in his stead of trying to help this president instead of trying to help the Republican party. He wants to attack this president it really tried to undo and be the center of attention. Look he wants to talk about character. Let's talk about jealousy. Let's talk about how shallow this person is I'm sick and tired of Mitt Romney wanting Donald Trump's help on one hand groveling trying to be the secretary of state during the transition in two thousand sixteen. Let's not forget that pathetic attempt by Mitt Romney. That was president Donald trumps favorite television program, FOX and friends this morning. Talking about the bracing slap of an op Ed published in today's Washington Post by rookie Senator Mitt Romney or Senator elect to announce his arrival on Capitol Hill. Hello everyone. Happy new year to you from all of us here at the reason podcast. I am Matt Welsh joined in our editors round table by my colleagues, Nick less p Peterson Herman and Katherine mango ward. Hey, nineteen y'all. Happy new year. Heavy wednesday. I'm here to make nNcholas be grown. Remember subscribe to the podcast today and every day at apple podcast Spotify and so on right review, and so forth. So we were wondering here month or two ago. Have forget when exactly who would be the next temperamentally centrist Republican politician to win the hearts and minds of Washington's political class by pivoting to anti-trump skulduggery. And I think we might have our answer this morning. Ding, ding, ding, ding, step away SAS. Here comes mitt, Peter. You wrote a great cover story on the mid Stor back in twenty twelve called consultant in chief, which if memory serves, you talked a lot about how he kind of very carefully management consulting Lee, kind of tweaks what is acceptable in terms of selling his politics, which tends to be kind of minor tweet. On the ship of state. Meanwhile, doing it such a way that, you know, no budget ever gets a balanced in in the future and that it's kind of a cautious approach yet. This thing strikes me as kind of not particularly cautious. It was stronger than anything I expected and it included allied. We must repair our fiscal foundation. What gives say you suitor pants. Well, Mitt Romney has never been a particularly ideological guy when it comes to policy, and that's that was sort of the the meta argument of that piece, which is that he's not somebody who comes in and sort of has an idea that oh, the government should be smaller or the government should be larger even or that. Instead, he's sort of like, well, let's look for it. It's this kind of moderate, no ideology, let's look for practical solutions sort of thing. Let's tweak what we can and try and make things sort of function better, you know, basically sort of treated government, like a management consultant treats the companies that they ended up working for which makes sense given his background where he was management console. Two and then went onto to financial work with with Bain. But he he does have another kind of ideology, I think that is expressing itself more in the Trump era, and that is that is a sort of a Mormon ideology of niceness. And and like, Donald Trump really deeply trigger triggers that instinct in Mitt Romney, and and in some other people, but particularly in a guy of in in a guy like Mitt Romney who is now representing Utah. Who is now kind of taking the the mantle of the of the the decent moderate here in in Washington, the decent moderate Republican to be clear, and and like a somebody like Donald Trump just in terms of personality in terms of the.

"But it also begs the question is he laying down a marker. Here is Romney holding out the option of potentially challenging Donald Trump in twenty twenty for the Republican party nomination. As you know, I think it is at the moment all evidence to meet suggests it's a fool's errand for any Republican who wants to challenge. President Trump for the nomination. He is still wildly popular. With republicans. The party has the party infrastructure. I should say has has coalesced around him. And yes, there is clearly a segment of Republicans some of them helped elect a democratic house majority. Just a couple months ago there is a there is a segment of Republicans in the country who are displeased with the way Trump handles himself and had been turned off by him. But it's a small slice overwhelming. Eighty five percent of Republicans approve of what Donald Trump is doing. And so it's an uphill battle for anybody. That might wanna. A challenge him. But I think that's one of the first questions Mitt Romney is going to have to answer from this op, Ed in fact in the bed he cites Nikki Haley is appointment as UN ambassador by President Trump as one of his great successes of the administration will Nikki Haley, the person that Mitt Romney is holding up as a great move by President Trump has already endorsed Trump's twenty twenty reelection effort is Mitt Romney going to do the same is he gonna follow Nikki Haley footsteps who clearly admires and endorsed Donald Trump's reelection effort. And if he doesn't do that now seems to me he may be holding out an option to at least keep open the notion that he's not fully on board with team Trump yet see where the president goes this year, and if any of his advice in this op Ed is heated and then see if there's a potential path for challenge down the road. I don't know if you speak to anybody who's ever sought the presidency in loss tip. It's one of the most DeVos's. Dating public losses. Anybody in politics, obviously has ever experienced and the desire to be president doesn't seem to dissipate much. So the fact that Mitt Romney has run for president twice in. Oh eight and twelve tells us all we need to know that he clearly sees himself in that job. And so perhaps he is keeping out keeping open the slight option. Again, I think he probably is aware politically just how difficult that may be to mount a challenge to the sitting popular Republican president among Republicans in a Republican primary one footnote to this back and forth between Trump and Romney. That is just humorous, I guess Rana McDaniel Ronna Romney McDaniel is the chairman of the Republican National Committee. Now, she is President Trump's handpicked chairwoman of the of the national party. He is just re upturn to become remained chairman all the way through the twenty. Reelect. She has been public about aligning all of the RNC's resources to the Trump re-election effort. In fact, the campaign and the party are a completely intertwined an interwoven organization in terms of all the pieces of campaigns the ground game and joint fundraising and all the things that campaign in party do together. Now, you may have noticed a familiar name when I sent her name Ronna Romney McDaniel Mitt Romney is the RNC chairwoman uncle with somebody with whom she has had a very close relationship over the years though, obviously it's been strained when he has spoken up against President Trump. She tweeted her clear disappointment today. She said police is attacked and obstructed by the MSM mainstream media and Democrats twenty four seven for an incoming Republican freshmen. Senator to attack President Trump as their first act feeds into what the Democrats and media want, and is disappointing and unproductive again, that's her uncle Mitt Romney, one of the most famous well-known politicians Republican politicians in the country who she refers to unnamed as an incoming Republican freshman Senator that from RNC chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel, I think one thing mitt Romney's made very clear the way he starting off his Senate career means that we are likely to hear from him a bit more going forward when he thinks that Donald Trump is careening off course should make for an interesting and likely strained relationship between the president and probably the highest profile well-known member of the United States Senate. Now Mitt Romney that does it for this edition of the. Daily DC..

"Eventful an angry presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable and it is in this province where the incumbent shortfall has been most glaring. Very strong words. And I like I was saying at the top had always been wondering was Mitt Romney gonna come to the United States Senate and sort of put his head down and just move along with the party pursuing the policies. He's most interested in not wanting to be sort of the Trump antagonised from inside the tent or would he be a bit more like the late? John McCain or the now retiring Jeff flake or Bob corker who have throughout the first two years of the Trump presidency spoken up at times amounting to what I'm not entirely. Sure. Because this this is the sort of wrap on some of those guys that Jeff flake may stand on the Senate floor and give a speech, but he was voting with the president most of the time. And he seemed completely unable to persuade the great vast majority of. Fellow Republicans in the Senate to take on the president on various issues that he had concerned about whether was the dismantling of the democratic institutions freedom of the press all of the issues that flake spoke about before he left the Senate. Now, I don't have an answer yet on Mitt Romney. I will say I was surprised by this op, Ed I I was surprised that he wanted to make his debut as a Senator with a key indication that he does see it as his job to hold Donald Trump accountable on this character and integrity test. And how important he sees that for the US president for America's future its position in the world with its allies end, its foes. But it was not something that he campaigned on. But it, but it's how he is making his debut, and he understands that this will get all the attention and and drive of the new cycle. He's actually going to sit down with C N N's, Jake tapper later today for his first interview since publishing this op, Ed, of course, he also knew that he would get a reaction from Donald Trump. I I don't think that surprise surprise them at all. This was Trump's tweet this morning here we go with Mitt Romney. But so fast question will be is he a flake question, Mark. That's a capital F as in Jeff flake. I hope not that was Trump's tweet. He then went on to say would much prefer that mitt focus on border security, and so many other things where he can be helpful I one and he didn't he should be happy for all Republicans be a team player and win. Here we go with Mitt Romney. But so fast. So Donald Trump clearly disappointed. Romney hasn't even been sworn in as a Senator yet. And now he's got a thorn in his side from this. You know leader of the establishment Republican party as it once was back in two thousand twelve when he was the Republican presidential nominee, so two questions. Now is this going to be Mitt Romney going for Mitt Romney and his op Ed says time, and again, he's not going to respond to every tweet. He's not going to respond every statement. He does agree with a lot of the policies and appointments, but he will speak up when he feels the need, and he felt the need that in the last month in December that that President Trump was on a decline as it came to this moral, fiber, the integrity piece, the American character piece of the job. But is this something he's going to do time? And again as Mitt Romney coming to the United States Senate to be sort of the leader of a Republican resistance. To trump. I'm pretty skeptical about that. And I think he makes it clear he really doesn't want to be that..

"Listening today on the podcast Mitt Romney is kicking off twenty nineteen in quite dramatic fashion. You may have seen that the former Republican presidential nominee from twenty twelve has taken on the Republican presidential nominee and now president from two thousand sixteen Donald Trump in a Washington Post op, Ed I think one of the big questions I had about Mitt Romney coming in as the junior Senator from Utah with all the stature of a former nominee of the party was how he was going to use that and what he saw as his role vis-a-vis, President Trump, we know the complicated history between the two whether it was the sort of awkward endorsement in two thousand twelve out in Las Vegas with Donald Trump endorsing mitt Romney's presidential campaign. Through the two thousand sixteen race mitt Romney's big anti-trumps speech sort of pleading with the party to not go this route and keeping up those comments then after Trump's victory having the president court him or perhaps the other way around for a potential nod to be the secretary of state of the United States of America, the Trump administration that clearly went south those talks in those negotiations and that did not happen. And then as Mitt Romney saw the opportunity to serve in the United States Senate from Utah knowing his way through the Republican party nomination process and looking ahead to the general election and seeing the president's popularity with the party. He welcome President Trump's support and stuck to the line as he does in this op Ed in the Washington Post today that he will work with them when he's doing good for the country and his state and he will oppose him when he's not which is a common refrain we hear, but what is. Is so startling in. This Romney op Ed is his attack on the president for the character issue. This is something we really haven't heard much from Republicans on this area. You will you know, there might be a momentary policy dispute that he has with his own party. Look at the issue over the withdrawal of US troops from Syria and Lindsey Graham on that or Bob corker on that. There have been other disputes like on the repeal of ObamaCare and the late John McCain voting against where the president was on that. But this is an all out assault from from Mitt Romney on the president's fitness for the office in terms of his moral fiber in terms of his character. In fact, Romney praises, many of the policies to say that he is very much in favor of cutting US corporate taxes to levels that are much more competitive with global competitors. Getting rid of regulations cracking down on China's what he calls unfair trade practices and even gave a nod to the reform for criminal Justice.
