Did you hear the one about the failed presidential candidate who took to the pages of The Washington Post to lecture someone in his own party who actually won?
If you haven’t yet, you soon will, because former Massachusetts Gov. Willard “Mitt” Romney is back in Washington, trying once again to advise his party — presumably on how to lose.
Romney has clawed his way back to semi-relevance by becoming a U.S. Senator from Utah, handing the media another useful pundit inside of the Republican Party to replace Sens. Jeff Flake and Bob Corker.
It gives them no end of pleasure to know that Romney is the same person who ran and lost against Barack Obama in 2012.
Romney launched the first anti-Trump salvo of 2019 in his op-ed entitled “The president shapes the public character of the nation. Trump’s character falls short.”
Romney’s interventions against Trump can only be described as an act of sabotage against conservatives in the United States today. They should be viewed as enemy political combatants in the same way the Democrat Party is.
Think about it.
While a Republican president is locked into a fight with the Democrats over America’s border integrity (i.e., an existential national battle), the likes of Romney who is attempting to wound him with friendly fire.
