Can a Republican take on Trump and survive? Mitt Romney is proving itís possible. [Hurl Alert]
Washington Post ^ | February 17, 2020 | Griff Witte, and Ashley Parker

Posted on 02/18/2020 9:21:56 AM PST by C19fan

Since Mitt Romney became the first senator in history to defy his party with a vote to convict in an impeachment trial, he's been called a "disgrace" by President Trump. He's been pilloried as a traitor each night on Fox News. And he's been formally censured by GOP organizations as far away as Louisiana.

This reminds me of the old joke:

I guy jumps off a ten story building and as he passes an open window on the 3rd floor yells, “So far, so good!”

The only good republican is a traitorous one that abuses dogs and thinks Putin is the enemy!

The writer has mistaken Trump for Hillary.

Hillary Clinton is the one whose rivals die.

I think his whole purpose was to create sound bites to use in his 2024 presidential bid.

Bull. He’s facing a big backlash in Utah. Only the dems and never Trumpers are praising him.

Apparently the washington post doesn’t understand how 6-year Senate terms work.

Romney’s just over a year into his term. There isn’t a lot that can be done to him.

Stupid article.

“Survive” how? The Impeachment vote happened the equivalent of yesterday. Did they expect Romney to simply drop dead from some poisoned umbrella or something?

“Well, he’s still a Senator at the moment, and he’s still breathing! Proof someone can defy Drumpf!”

What a bunch of ten-cent idiots.

What’s “surviving”? Despised by your former supporters and Republican Party? Cheered by the miserable mainstream media that condemned you when you ran for President? Admired by people like Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi?

There’s a special place in Hadies for a jerk like Mittens.

How is he surviving? He has no influence left in the Republican Senate and now must content himself with being the “spoiler” by threatening to go with the Dems on close votes. Backstabber isn’t much of a legacy.

Exactly. All he does is vote in the Senate. He has no influence, he’s not going to be a big player at the Convention. He’s just one Senator.
