When revenge takes hold of a person’s heart, they usually find themselves isolated and alone. A person’s ulterior ultimatum becomes visible to the world as their actions show nothing but hatred and jealousy. So is the case for Senator Mitt Romney, who has been only one of three Republicans who fell by the wayside when they went against their own party by turning their backs on President Trump. Not only have the Republicans in the Senate left behind Senator Romney, but his home state has left him behind too.
Romney’s tweet at the beginning of October had landed Karma in his lap when he posted, “By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling.” Senator Romney finds himself along with very few other senators cold and alone as his colleagues leave him behind. It shows how everything he goes against the president is out of spite and nothing else. No one who matters in the Senate supports Romney anymore, and he has become just a voice in the wilderness as the GOP continues to push forward and fight the Left.
No one would have more reason to be jealous of the president than Mitt Romney. He has tried in the presidency twice and fell short while President Trump beat him in the primaries. The icing on the cake came when President Trump encouraged to throw his name in the hat and audition publicly for the Secretary of State position and completely overlooking him. Was it as a joke President Trump did this? Nope, President Trump just found someone more qualified, Mike Pompeo. But considering how Romney is acting now, it is kind of funny.
Democrats viewed Romney as an asset in their circus act to impeach President Trump. They figured he could get the support of more Republican Senators to side with him, but that is just not the case. His anger and jealousy showed more of his personal intent rather than what is best for the country. GOP members saw right through it. So not only does the GOP leave Senator Mitt Romney by the wayside, so do the Democrats. He just is not wanted right now.
We see every day how the Left cries as they try to throw President Trump under the bus only to burn themselves in the process. One would think Mr. Romney would learn his lesson, but he has not entirely caught on yet because he is still trying to go against the grain. His GOP voters in Utah have expressed their anger toward their Senator, and it seems he may have burned his bridge within his own state. Romney told NBC News in attempts to cover up his mess up after leaving the Senate chamber, “Nobody’s said anything. Everybody expresses their own views in the way they should. People don’t talk to each other or criticize each other or praise each other.” He practically ran away from reporters after saying this.
Many feel Romney could redeem himself by simply shutting up. The same three Republicans are the ones who stir the pot, Senators Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and Mitt Romney. As Senator Lindsey Graham put on the Senate Floor a resolution to combat the impeachment inquiry, these were the only three who were not in support of the president. What keeps the GOP alive with believing in our leader is the severe lack of evidence for impeachment.
Still, those three Senators side more with the enemy. But there is something Mr. Romney forgot. When he ran for President against Obama, President Donald Trump endorsed and supported him. So not only do we see a man who is bitter, but we know a man who is not loyal to someone who has helped him out as much as President Trump. It is a shame, but that is how the world turns.
Other senators are saying about Romney, “He does get heard.” For almost all of the Republicans, they are saying they don’t care and don’t like what they hear because neither of the two men like each other. President Trump only attacked after Romney’s tweet and called him a “pompous ass,” which is still hilarious. For the most part, President Trump has done his part to work with Romney, but the reactions are not met mutually. Romney is receiving tons of mail and phone calls from voters who are “disgusted” with him. Most say, “Romney is not representing us.”
