Mitt Romney Tag

Surprisingly, I'm not angry at Mitt Romney for his vote to convict Donald Trump for abuse of power and to remove him from office. I disagree with it, strongly, but anger isn't my emotion. "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" is more my emotion. Disgust is more my emotion. Romney has disappointed so many times, I'm numb to him.

One of the first and most vocal #NeverTrump members of Congress, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is now making headlines as "the first Republican" to call for President Trump's impeachment. So far, there is no indication at all that he is "first," it seems more likely he is the "lone" Republican making such a call.  Even Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) stated Sunday that the case for impeachment "just isn't there."

The long-awaited release of the Mueller report revealed, unequivocally, that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 election. However, Mueller's decision to lay out the case against Trump with regard to obstruction, and doing so without pursuing indictments against him or anyone else in his circle, has had  predictable results: the left is screaming for Trump's scalp, and the Trump White House and his supporters are declaring vindication.

The lesson of nominating Mitt Romney for president is that it doesn't matter how objectively nice a Republican presidential candidate is, the media and Democrats will portray the person as a monster. Romney was portrayed as someone whose main attributes were that he gave a woman cancer and kept women in binders. His decency on the campaign trail was not rewarded. The media swarmed to ensure his defeat.
