Romney Speaks

Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, said Sunday that "it just makes me ill" to see people inside of the Republican Party praise Russian President Vladimir Putin as he wages war against Ukraine. Romney even went as far as to describe it as "almost treasonous" to side with Putin.

"A lot of those people are changing their stripes as they are seeing the response of the world and the political response here in the U.S.," Romney said during an interview on CNN's "State of the Union," when asked about pro-Putin sentiment within the Republican Party.

"But how anybody — how anybody in this country, which loves freedom — can side with Vladimir Putin — which is an oppressor, a dictator, he kills people, he imprisons his political opponents, he has been an adversary of America at every chance he's had — it's unthinkable to me. It's almost treasonous," he continued. "And it just makes me ill to see some of these people do that."

We all know the people to whom he is referring. It's worth remembering that, when Republicans lined up behind Trump's pressure campaign for mythological dirt on the Binden's, Romney was the only Republican senator to not only refuse to go along, he pretty much accused Trump of lying.

He also abased himself before Fergus in an attempt at getting a cabinet position.
He said that he has morons on his team. Perhaps one more than he had counted.

I remember the photo of him having a meal with Trump. He looked like a man who it sold his soul and realized that he gotten too little for it.

Or maybe he was wishing that he had brought a longer spoon.
