In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Romney Losing Support in Utah for Challenging Trump Impeachment Trial Rules

Let’s see how far he can go messing with President Trump before he gets a primary challenge next time around.

From the Washington Examiner:

Utah Republican Sen. Mitt Romney lost support from Republicans and independents in his home state during the weeks after he called for witnesses in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, a new poll shows.

The Morning Consult found support for Romney, 72, going down after he called for former national security adviser John Bolton to testify at Trump’s impeachment trial, which began on Thursday.

The poll shows the senator’s approval rating among Utah Republicans, from September through December of 2019, dropping 18%. Additionally, 9% of independents shifted to disapproving of Romney over the quarter.

In the prior quarter, 65% of Utah Republicans supported Romney, and while a majority still do presently, that number sank to 57%.

The numbers are particularly striking for Utah, one of the most Republican states in the country.

  1. Romney is a strange bird, full of contradictions.
    He was treated badly by the Dems and the MSM when he ran for President against Obama, so his wishy-washy support for anything or anyone who is bullying MrTrump is surprising.

    1. “Pierre Delecto”* fights harder against President Trump, than he ever fought against King Barry the Wicked.

      Or Candy Crowley, for that matter.

      Had he succeeded in 2012, Cankles would easily have mopped the floor with him in 2016, and Monsieur Delecto has to know that.

      His bitterness is thus, in some ways, understandable. Decades hence, Pierre Delecto will be remembered, if at all, for losing to King Barry the Wicked in 2012. And yet, had he won back then, he’d have been remembered for losing in 2016, and ushering in eight years of President Cankles.

      He was damned that he didn’t, but he undoubtedly would have damned if he did. That can’t be a pleasant realization to carry to the end of your days.

      So, the bitterness is understandable. The backstabbing, though…not so much.
