Mitt Romney left jaws on the ground with this 2020 announcement
After Mitt Romney voted to convict the President on one of the Democrats’ articles of impeachment everyone immediately wondered what it meant for Romney’s immediate political future.
Some wondered if Romney was setting himself up to challenge the President.
But Mitt Romney left jaws on the ground with this 2020 announcement.
Mitt Romney’s political career is best summed up by describing the Never-Trump RINO as a political chameleon who adopts whatever stripes he needs to in order to survive the current moment.
In 1994, Romney ran for Senate against Ted Kennedy as the most pro-abortion candidate in the race and vocally opposed Ronald Reagan only to claim in his 2012 Presidential campaign that he was “severely conservative.”
In that 2012 campaign, Romney accepted Donald Trump’s endorsement only to turn around and stab Trump in the back during the 2016 race by becoming the founding father of the Never-Trump movement.
Romney’s shape-shifting was on display again during a panel discussion at the Munich Security conference.
An attendee asked Romney if the Republican Party would move towards Romney’s Barack Obama-like globalist position on trade.
Romney responded that he did not know because now that Trump is the head of the Republican Party the GOP is taking a pro-America position on trade.
The Utah Senator claimed that although he could not predict which direction the GOP would move in the future he did feel confident in stating the President would win re-election.
“I can’t possibly predict what the future is in my party. I did not predict that President Trump would become President Trump,” Romney said.
Romney claimed that Trump would win re-election because the Democrats were likely to nominate Bernie Sanders – who in Romney’s mind was unelectable.
“I can tell you I think it’s likely he will get reelected. Not because he’s highly popular, but because I think the Democrats are not going to nominate someone who’ll be a very effective competitor.”
Some Americans wondered how Romney could vote to remove the President from office because he was a danger to the republic and the turn around and confidently assert the President would win re-election.
If the President deserved to be removed from office then Romney should do everything in his power to defeat the President in 2020.
Instead, Romney just reverted to the rudderless political hack who will do and say anything to survive politically.
