Welcome, all my friends to the show that never ends. The New Year’s edition of As the Swamp Turns brings us a live grenade thrown into the abyss by freshman senator from Utah, Mitt Romney, giving the mainstream media and all people who follow politics like it was the O.J. Simpson trial, something to talk about while we wait for Congressional Democrats to start obstructing the Make America Great Again agenda at every turn.
“With the nation so divided, resentful and angry, presidential leadership in qualities of character is indispensable. And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring,” Romney wrote….
“On balance, his conduct over the past two years, particularly his actions this month, is evidence that the president has not risen to the mantle of the office,” Romney wrote.
Romney argued that Trump’s “shortfall” set a poor example for America’s “public character,” while alienating U.S. allies.
“I do not intend to comment on every tweet or fault. But I will speak out against significant statements or actions that are divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions,” he wrote. “To reassume our leadership in world politics, we must repair failings in our politics at home. That project begins, of course, with the highest office once again acting to inspire and unite us,” he went on.
Essentially, Romney is taking the globalist position of his predecessors in the Senate and is offering a counter for President Trump, a foil to take eyes off of the very significant advances Trump is making to break the back of globalism itself and return the world to equal footing of nations.
In the end, all the oped is is a string of much-repeated talking points meant to shine a bad light on the president as a person regardless of what the man truly is all about.
Mr. Romney would be advised to remember We the People can see through soaring rhetoric meant to pull the wool over eyes.
