Senator Elect Romney (R.Ut.) knows who the real enemy is:
It is well known that Donald Trump was not my choice for the Republican presidential nomination. After he became the nominee, I hoped his campaign would refrain from resentment and name-calling. It did not. When he won the election, I hoped he would rise to the occasion. His early appointments of Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions, Nikki Haley, Gary Cohn, H.R. McMaster, Kelly and Mattis were encouraging. But, 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…
I will act as I would with any president, in or out of my party: I will support policies that I believe are in the best interest of the country and my state, and oppose those that are not. 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.
Go here to read the comments. It is interesting that Romney had this piece published in the Washington Post, a publication that did its worst to destroy him during his failed run for the White House in 2012. Throughout his political career Romney has imitated a beaten dog who licks the hands of his abusive master in regard to the tribunes of the Left. His venom, such as it is, has always been reserved for members of his own party. Thus his attitude towards Trump, a man he eagerly met with when there was a thought of Romney as Secretary of State, is unsurprising. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Trump often behaves in foolish and self-destructive ways, but Romney’s eagerness to preemptively go to war with Trump stands in stark contrast with his willingness to always whip out the “Why Can’t We All Get Along?” card when dealing with Leftists. I expect little from him in Washington, and I suspect I will be disappointed in that little.
