I am surprised this was in the Washington Post. Something I can agree with.

He fights while other Republicans cower.

That sums it up very nicely.

It’s all about the Bush Plan for North Mexico.

The GOP elected want it.

The citizens don’t.

I hope Rand Paul pops him on the nose.

Cruz too.

Mitt Romney’s everything we hate about Rinos. I hope Trump destroys him like he did McCain.

Romney wants to be the new McCain, the “good” Republican worshiped because he’s hating on his party.

Romney was NOT a POW or EVER in the military he will be a much easier target for Trump, the MSM won’t be able to throw his war hero status in our faces!!!! Mittens better watch himself but it is to late for that now he already shot his mouth off!!!

This does not sound like WaPo. Must be a mix up.

Many instead see Trump’s pugnacious and sometimes crude talk as an essential part of his virtue — he fights while other Republicans cower.

That Romney hasn't 'got that', is exactly why Mr. NoseintheAir lost his pres bid in 2012 and will wash out early in the primaries in 2020. We knew exactly what we were doing when we elected Trump - his morals as a former playboy have nothing to do with the brilliant mind and determined fighter this country needs.

Romney’s a lowlife dirtbag, not worth including in a curbside garbage bag. Same as all GOPe Deep State and Swamp Creatures are worthless trash, always are.

Yup, and having the courage to fight while others cower in fear is in my book far more indicative of “character” than being polite and “dignified”.

The comments in the Compost are always vomit inducing. Are they shadow banning conservative comments, or is their customer base primarily lunatics?
