Romney Marches on White House

Posted by Tim Kaelin on

Is it plain old bitterness that motivates Utah Senator Romney to repeatedly make a fool of himself?

You will recall him as the former governor of Massachusetts who was given the honor of being the Republican candidate for President of the United States in 2012. 

 Even running against incumbent President Barack Obama, the race was Romney’s to lose – and he did, by being a stiff starched-collar snob without an agenda other than wanting to be President.  Romney was also a flip-flopper of the first magnitude – have enacted Romneycare for the folks in Massachusetts and then opposed the essentially same Obamacare that was – at the time – very unpopular with the American People.

In 2016, Romney was not running, but he was one of Trump’s harshest critics – calling the New York businessman a phony and a fraud.  Once Trump won, however, Romney shamelessly starting humping Trump’s leg (figuratively speaking) in an effort to be named Secretary of State.  They even had a friendly tête-à-tête over dinner in an exclusive restaurant.

I never thought Trump would give him the job – but rather dangled the prospect to show what a political opportunist the smooth-talking Romney really was.  If that was Trump’s plan, it worked.  Romney looked foolish and humiliated by his supplication.

Romney returned to being a Trump critic, but not for long.  Romney’s Mormon religion made him a good prospect for a United States Senate seat in Utah.  Suddenly, it was time to play pattycake with the President again.  Trump gave Romney a full-throated endorsement – which was not inconsequential in view of Trump’s popularity among Utah Republicans. And so, Romney becomes the junior senator from Utah.

Apparently, however, it was not a good faith rapprochement -- with Romney looking for a payback.  He got it when he was the only Republican in the United States Senate to vote to remove Trump from office after Democrats in the House sent over the uniquely partisan and baseless Articles of Impeachment.

Removing Trump from office without any evidence of “high crimes and misdemeanors” would have been an assault on the Constitution that would have grievously damaged any concept of separation of powers.  But the very venal Romney did not care.  It was the act of a very small man.

Seemingly incapable of skipping any opportunity to debate himself, Romney took to the streets of Washington to join the mishmash of protestors – legitimate and otherwise – to march on the White House.  Romney used what was left of his good name to vilify millions of good police officers by embracing the fraudulent banner of Black Lives Matter and in cahoots with Antifa – the violent wing of the political left.

More than anything, Romney seems to be driven by the fact that Trump is in the Oval Office and he is not. 

FOOTNOTE: looking at this photo, one can only wonder how Romney managed to avoid joining in with black protesters.

So, there ‘tis.

  • Romney lost the bid for President and that was on him not Trump!
    He asked for President Trump’s endorsement for Senate and he got it. Then he turned on President Trump again. We Republicans or Independents have absolutely NO USE for Romney ever again!

  • Romney is a snake in the grass and cannot be trusted to vote GOP nor anything but for the Dems

  • First Michigan was his home state. Then Massachusetts. Now Utah. He isn’t in it for what he can do for Utah. He is in it for what Utah can do for him. Now there is talk in Utah that they are not too happy with him and are even talking about recall.

    Any Michigander that can remember when his old man was Governor of Michigan will tell you that Mitt is a chip off the old flip flopper block. His old man campaigned on the promise to encourage more business to come to Michigan. That was after he moved the American Motors plant from Michigan to Wisconsin.

    I wonder if the Utah voters knew that Romney supports ANTIFA. He says he only supports the part of ANTIFA that is against racism and bigotry. That is like saying there were good Nazis and bad Nazis. There were no good Nazis and there were no bad Nazis. There were only Nazis. There is no good ANTIFA and there is no bad ANTIFA. There is only ANTIFA.

    It has been said that a bad Republican is better than a good Democrat. In 2012, in my opinion, Mitt was the lessor of two evils. Sometimes I wonder if his loss wasn’t a blessing in disguise. I think Mitt should do something honest for once in his life. Switch to the Democrat Party. I wonder what he wants to be when he grows up?

  • I totally agree with John, Kay, Linda and Jon.
    I think Mitt Romney should give up his seat as a Senator for the Republicans.
