If you want to know one of the reasons a reality TV star clobbered the establishment candidates in the Republican primaries, look no further than this quintessential useful idiot moment of former GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Yesterday, Romney sent out the following tweet:
Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity.
The question on most every non-establishment republican’s mind is why isn’t Romney assailing the lecherous conduct of Democratic Senator Al Franken and Democratic Congressman John Conyers? It appears that Romney is content to save his harsh criticism only for members of his own party. Even if one can understand why he could never support Trump, many conservatives wonder, is it asking too much for Romney to assail the Democrats, when warranted, on occasion?
Why didn’t Romney ever address the disgraceful history of the media in conjunction with feminists and the entire Democratic Party when they dismissed outright serious allegations of misconduct, including rape, made against Bill Clinton? The reality was that while occupying the highest office in the land, Hillary’s husband defiled the sanctity of the Oval Office by having sex with a 22 year old intern. Yet, during the election, she shamelessly argued to voters that Trump should be disqualified from the presidency because he had made boorish comments captured on tape. Even though he found Trump beyond the pale, couldn’t Romney have at least levied a charge against Hillary’s galling hypocrisy during the election?
What does Romney hope to gain for the Republican Party by his long-term see no evil stance when it comes to criticizing members of the opposition? Romney an other never-trumpets of his ilk is clueless concerning the nature of the modern day Democratic Party and its political tactics.
Romney’s persistent silence in the face of deviant behavior of Democrats is deafening and is indicative of establishment republicans not equal to the task of opposing the 21st century Democratic Party.
