Mitt Romney is discovering that his WaPo op-ed attack on Trump wasn't such a good idea, after all
By Thomas Lifson

Mitt Romney knows he is a smart guy and is used to thinking of himself as the smartest guy in the room.  But I don't think he thought through the now infamous Washington Post op-ed attacking President Trump's character that he published on New Year's Day, just a few days prior to assuming his new job as U.S. senator from Utah.  Virtue-signaling feels great, like a sugar high, but the aftermath often brings predictable consequences that somehow escaped the notice of the person anxious to demonstrate righteousness.


Mitt failed to understand that he is joining what is often called "the world's most exclusive club."  The Senate, with only 100 members and immense powers, is not at all like the raucous House of Representatives.  And though Senators face re-election only after six long years, they are very, very concerned with their ability to keep their membership card.

Romney won in Utah for the same reason the Occasional-Communist won in the Bronx.

That can't change the fact that he remains the RINO's RINO...

Is there a more tone-deaf politician than Romney?

Want to talk about lack of character?

Romney's letter stunt showed a complete lack of it.

I am so glad Romney's little stunt backfired.  Maybe he'll keep his mouth shut for a couple of weeks.

Actually not. Occasional-Crotchrot win was due to some insane NY State election laws. Romney won because UT is full of morons.

Don't worry Little Mittens, the morons that voted for you this time will forget all about it by next time and will vote for you again.
Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side.

Potatoes=DEATH!!!

BTW if you want to live a long healthy life there is one "Super Food" that is readily available regardless of season or location......The Meat Mountain. The manager at the local Arby's told me about it a couple months ago and I have no reason to doubt her.
