Mitt Romney may be the darling of the Democrats for now.
But they can’t save him from the destruction he’s brought on himself.
Mitt Romney is about to pay big time for his impeachment vote against Trump.
It would have been unthinkable just a few short years ago that a President would be impeached on the basis of opinion and not fact.
It also seems unthinkable that a member of the Republican Party would join in the Democrats’ insanely biased witch hunt.
The only person that Mitt Romney has ever been loyal to is himself and the only ideal he fights for is pandering to liberals.
Mitt Romney tries to play both sides which is why he’s a weak politician.
When running against Senator Ted Kennedy in 1994, Kennedy famously said, “He’s not pro-choice, he’s not anti-choice, he’s multiple choice.”
Romney lost the race.
He ran for governor of Massachusetts on a pro-choice platform.
His statewide insurance plan was the basis for Obamacare.
Looking back, it’s more surprising that Mitt Romney was ever chosen to be the nominee of the Republican Party than it was that he decided to side with the Democrats on impeachment.
He’s flip-flopped between Democrat and Republican on every single issue and gotten away with it.
But there’s no way that Mitt Romney could pretend to be on both sides of impeachment as much as he wanted to do that.
He had to choose which side of the aisle he was on politically, and he chose to side with the Democrats’ impeachment that Trump should be removed from office for his phone call with the Ukrainian President.
He can no longer pretend that he is a Republican in any way, and as a Senator from the state of Utah, there’s no way that he’s winning reelection.
He had huge help in getting elected to the Senate because Trump endorsed him even after Romney ran the ‘Never Trump’ campaign.
The number of ‘Never Trump’ Republicans is limited at this point, most of them have been pleased that President Trump has carried out a conservative agenda, put America first in foreign policy, built a great economy and put constitutional judges on the courts.
Every Republican out there is going to work overtime to make sure that Romney never has a place in politics again.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham said she would even run against Mitt Romney if no one else would.
“At the end of the day, one man was trying to impress the elites in Washington today, and the guy in the oval office was not,” Ingraham said. “Romney, I hope, enjoys his brief moment in the sun while he’s lauded by the very people who spent the last 20 years attacking him. Because in a few weeks, the phone will stop ringing. He’ll be lucky to get booked on Chris Cuomo’s show.”
“He’s the ultimate selfish, preening, self-centered politician,” Ingraham continued. “He wanted desperately to be Trump’s secretary of state, and then, he casts this futile, pointless vote to convict him in order to show that he’s a man of principle, unlike all these other Republicans. It’s called payback.”
But ultimately Romney’s vote didn’t hurt Trump at all while it’s destroyed his own career.
