16 Comments on Mitt Romney Fired; Trump Chooses Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson for Secretary of State

  1. BWAAA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HAHHH!!! Take a hike, Mitt, and don’t let the screen door hit you in the ass on the way out! Also, excellent pick of Bolton as Deputy. He’s the kind of hard-nose dude we need at State to clean out the garbage.

  2. Unless we hear it straight from Trump, Bannon, Priebus, Conway or some other ‘official’ spox from the transition team, we’ll never know how serious Trump was in choosing Romney. Pure speculating, I’m guessing that there was (is?) a push from Priebus to hire people from his circle of associates and that seeing how his BFF, Paul Ryan, probably owes a favor to Romney, that’s how this got going in the first place. Then there is the recent talk of Romney’s niece to chair the RNC. Maybe someone else can clue me in on what is so special about Mitt Romney that he continues to have influence because I don’t understand that part.

    I’ve broken my own first rule of listening to the media about Rex Tillerson.

  3. Poor Mittens got punk’d by Trump. Dangling the job in front of him and Mittens jumping at the chance has exposed him to all. A public humiliation without saying a negative word. Mittens is done.

  4. The senate confirmation questioning will consist of two areas. Man-made (fill in the blank), and Exxon’s Russian relationship.

  5. @AA, I like your analysis.
    Trump is a Master Chess Player.
    Could never stand Mittens.
    Maybe now, he’ll just fade away.

  6. Trump is the master of manipulation. He does things to get a reaction, a reaction is a true indicator of how a person feels, without the red paint and high heels of a public persona.
    Romney is a refined politician, it took a while to strip the veneer off and get to the cheap wood underneath. I kinda think he did the same to Rudy.
    Pretty sure he isn’t looking for anybody who feels they have earned it, that would be Hillary.

  7. I am sooooo relieved! I don’t know anything about Tillerson, but if he is giving vapors to the left, then I’m all for him!

  8. I noticed Mittens never went before the cameras to say what an idiot he had been during the campaign and how totally wrong he was. He still wouldn’t have gotten the job but he might have been more respected by the American people if he had.

  9. I’m sure the GOPe wanted Mittens the Milksop.
    Can’t have a SecState wandering around the World pretending to be an American, now can we? Ryan, McConnell, and the rest of the GOPe (Mensheviks at heart) will be hard-pressed to reject Mr. Trump’s nominees and will most likely enlist the Demonrats (Bolsheviks) through the “60 rule” to do the blocking for them without accepting any responsibility.

    izlamo delenda est …

  10. Typical left: taunt the right with sins they themselves have committed.

    Wasn’t it Obama who was caught in love mike telling the Russians to wait until he was re elected?

    Wasn’t it her self-proclaimed royal highness, HRC who trotted out a super prop to ‘reset’ relations with Russia?

    Now Russia is the ‘big’ enemy. Guess that’s ANOTHER thing destroyed by the Obama Administration.

    Funny thing about Russia, and I know they aren’t necessarialy benevolent to the world, but I can’t remember seeing stories about our reporters being held caprine and beheaded or enslaved, or gays being tossed office roofs, or Russian terrorists bombings.

    Sure makes you wonder about who spreads fake news: liberals who can’t even say jihadi terrorists, or radical Muslim terrorists, or ILLEGAL ALIENS or conservatives. ‘VEERRY INTERESTING.’

  11. Romney’s political career needs to be killed, dismembered, and buried in the four furthest parts of the globe. He is the worst kind of globalist. . .the ones who hypocritically say they aren’t

  12. I agree with Jimbo on this one. The State Dept is in need of some serious house-cleaning. And John Bolton as a Deputy Sec I think he’s just the guy to run the house-cleaning. Bet some folks at State are shittin their britches about now.

  13. AA, it’s like Trump saying (paraphrasing here) “he won’t pursure charges against Hillary”…when it’s DoJ’s responsibility to do so.

    Tricky feller, Donald.

  14. John Bolton as deputy secretary? What. The. Fuck.

    If people had wanted neocons, we could have voted for Jeb . . . or Hillary.

    He’ll be causing problems for Trump from day one.
