Mitt Romney, aka Willard, is the definition of what it means to be a loser. Granted, he’s wealthy, and yes he was able to get himself elected to the U.S. Senate, and after doing so has proven himself to be more than a disappointment and on so many different levels. He has continued to work against this president, despite first having sought a position in the new administration but having to settle for a seat in the U.S. Senate, even receiving the president’s endorsement for the seat he now holds. If he so dislikes this president, or disapproves of his agenda then perhaps he should simply become a Democrat. President Trump was, and continues to be, right about Willard.
It was on Friday that Willard apparently felt the need to announce, though it was likely that few believed him, that he is not leading any sort of NeverTrump rebellion, or coup, against President Trump from within his party. And that can likely be considered as true if for no other reason than Willard couldn’t lead his way out of a closet. But he is one of the leading voices from within his party among those who agree with the Democrats that our duly elected president should be removed from office. He likely remains embarrassed for having run one of the worst campaigns in American political history and for losing to a man he should have easily beaten.
It was in an interview with Politico that Willard, who has served as a frequent, and very vocal, critic of President Trump said, “I don’t believe I’m leading a wing of the party. Because there’s no wing that’s very large that is aligned with me.” And he went on to say, “Since I’ve been back, I have not spoken with a single senator about the impeachment process or about the implications of the process that’s going on or how I would vote.” But Willard has frequently criticized and opposed President Trump’s legislative agenda since before he even took office. And even before being sworn in Willard took to the leftist Washington Post to slam President Trump.
Willard has on multiple occasions voted against President Trump’s national emergency declaration, which allows him to secure the southern border by re-appropriating defense funds. And he delivered a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday afternoon, issuing a sharp rebuke of the president’s move to withdraw troops from northern Syria. Willard said the president’s decision to withdraw from Syria and to allegedly abandon the Kurds, “will stand as a bloodstain in the annals of American history.” Further, Willard attacked the “administration,” of President Trump, for speaking “cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty.”
No Willard, you’re wrong again! Because what will stand as a bloodstain on the history of the U.S. is the willful transferring of nearly all U.S. manufacturing jobs to China, for no other reason than for the sake of profit with little thought given to American workers. That had to have been one of the most irresponsible moves ever, the transferring of millions of manufacturing jobs to another country, and literally impoverishing millions American citizens. And it would seem to be something that Willard was, and remains to this day, very much in favor of. And yet Willard maintains that he and President Trump see “eye-to-eye” on most issues.
Willard has chosen his side, and nothing he can say can change that. As far as I’m concerned, he is now the enemy. That goes for anybody else who turns against this President. One may not agree with every policy his administration puts forth, and I understand that. But to virtue signal at the expense of our President or to create dissension against him is unacceptable and intolerable. This is a political cold-war and the progressives present is an existential threat to the liberty and freedoms that we have enjoyed. If the radical progressives are legitimized in this next election, the America that we have known will be forever lost. We must not start down that path.
So yes, I believe Willard when says he’s not leading any effort from within his party to remove the president that I voted for, and will vote for again, come the next election regardless of the things said about him. Willard is, after all, much more of a follower. He’s likely doing exactly what it is that he’s being told to by those much higher up the food chain, the ones actually running the show. But it’s because of his current position that the claims he continues to make, however baseless and without proof, carry a certain amount of weight. Which makes his actions all the more treacherous. He still never misses an opportunity to attack this president.
And it was in following the example set by RINOs like John McCain and Jeff Flake, as they duped the voters of Arizona into believing they actually shared the same values as the people of Arizona, that Willard did the very same thing to the voters in Utah. And thus they made a grievous error in judgment by trusting this man, this Willard, to be their Senator. Willard is disgusting, and is beneath contempt. He is a liar and a fraud. I can never forgive myself for ever voting for this man just a few years ago, when he and Paul Ryan claimed that would save America. If only I had known then what I know now, that both were then and remain today, traitors to my country.
Willard has never supported President Trump’s agenda, which is odd, because much of what the president has done and promised to do is exactly what Willard himself ran on back in 2012. But it’s today that I’m very confident in saying that Willard never intended to make good on anything that he promised, while President Trump has made good on much of what he promised. Willard’s obsession with putting American troops into harm’s way make no sense. And he has yet to offer any justification for doing so. It’s easy to criticize a President who has the duty of ordering the military into battle, especially since Willard will never have to do any of the bleeding.
And finally it’s in a weird sort of way we may actually owe old Willard a great debt of gratitude. Because had Willard not simply melted into what was really little more than a puddle of goo back in 2012 and had chosen, instead, to be a bit more like candidate Trump regarding both the ‘fake news’ media as well as his opponent, he might well have ended up winning. And had he won we would not now have Donald J. Trump as our president. And maybe it’s that that forms the basis of his hatred of this president. If Willard had won, we wouldn’t have been made to suffer through eight years of Barry’s devastation. Willard’s legacy is Trump, and it as to be killing him.
