Posted on 12/10/2023 11:03:30 AM PST by ChicagoConservative27
Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former President Donald Trump had a dangerous “authoritarian approach.”
Romney said, “I do think you can look at his record as president and particularly in the last months of his presidency and say, ‘This is a dangerous approach. It’s an authoritarian approach.’ That gives me far more concern than him playing to the crowd as he did.”
He continued, “I think if you can look at the last few months of his presidency, you’d suggest that that’s the kind of thing you might see. That he would not have the generals around him, as he did last time, people of judgment and experience offering advice and, in some cases, restraining his impulses. Instead, he would have people around him, encouraging his impulses and perhaps adding to them. And I’m afraid you’d find the nation more divided.”

Between Trump and Romney I wonder which one plans to become a God when he dies?
Romney has a dangerous, extreme far-left Liberal moron approach.
Romney is jealous, he knows he’ll never be president.
Ya, it seems that Mitt is parroting the talking points. What the heck???
Romney: Trump Has Dangerous ‘Authoritarian Approach’
I’m just glad the Dems and the Leftists don’t though. /s
The 2012 elections were much more fair and honest.
Romney’s real problem is that Trump is not that he’s a potential dictator but that he’s a threat to the emerging dictatorship.
And Biden DOESN’T????????????????????????
Bite it, Pierre Delecto scumbag!
going after the political opposition, treating a mostly peaceful demonstration as an insurrection, surveilling public school parents, evangelical protestants and Catholics, clamping down on academic freedom in the name of safe spaces while exempting Jew-haters, weaponizing the law to attack Trump and his families ... these things are o.k.?
Reposting because the truth needs to be repeated against the lies of the Left and people like Romney.
The Delusional Lying Dictatorial Left would have you confused about dictatorship.
By definition a dictator combines and exercises both legislative and executive powers. The Constitution does not authorize such executive action as it structures our federal government with a Separation of Powers - Legislative (Congress MAKES the laws), Executive (the President ENFORCES the laws), and Judicial.
Private enterprise on the other hand is not under constitutional authority and owners/CEO’s/presidents of companies can be dictatorial and often are and if he knows what he’d doing is probably a good thing for the company.
“Dictatorship” and “free speech” issues ONLY apply to GOVERNMENT, not private enterprise or individuals. While government is SEVERELY LIMITED by the Constitution, private enterprise or individuals are free from constitutional restraints. Private enterprise can dictate to their employees and individuals can dictate to themselves whatever they want.
Our Free Constitutional Republic SEVERELY LIMITS the bounds of government which is NOT ALLOWED to be dictatorial although the totalitarian Biden/Obama administration ignores that. The Delusional Lying Dictator-Loving Leftists pretend they’re afraid of dictatorship when their heroes Biden/Obama dictate their way to making the federal government a totalitarian regime. I wonder how many of these people read posts and comments on FR including Trump. Some of the stuff we talk about here on FR seems to show up pretty soon after we talk about it here.
Having said that, I love Trump because he loves America. Trump is a very successful businessman. One reason is because to be successful in business the guy in charge who knows what he is doing makes the decisions. Those who resist are often fired. In that sense a President or CEO of a Free Enterprise Company could very well be dictatorial and be very successful. Nothing wrong with that.
I think as a successful businessman, Trump is used to being dictatorial and has every right to be so since he is the owner of the business. And it obviously served him and his enterprise very well. Again, nothing wrong with that in private business. Again the Constitution has no limitations on individuals or private business which are free to follow their own pursuits.
But government is a different animal. Although running a government like a business is a good idea in certain ways, America’s Free Constitutional Republic does not authorize the Executive Branch - the President - to legislate (make rules and laws). Legislation is reserved for Congress.
Executive Orders (EO’s) are an example Presidential legislation and THAT is dictatorship. Dictators make up the rules and then execute them. In America such presidential action is unconstitutional.
Trump is doing that mainly because America is in an emergency mode to correct the threatening acts implemented by his Leftist predecessors. Fair enough. But at some point, the goal MUST BE to reestablish the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land against the feds and to dismantle the $3+ trillion unconstitutional portion of the feds.
Either we dismantle it or dismantles us as Biden/Obama are trying to do right now.
FREEDOM FIRST, EVERYTHING ELSE SECOND!
Uh, the one wearing the magic underwear? Just a guess.
Leaders lead. Get TF out of the way or get trampled!
Dictators increase government regulations. Trump reduced government regulations.
Trump doesn’t have the follow-through. He’s a showman — that has its good and bad sides — not an authoritarian.
Just shut up and don’t get your magic underwear in a bunch their Willard
Only one is a mormon, so there's that...
Cofer Black runs Romney’s Ukraine grift.
Same as Biden.
Mitt, you’ve already demonstrated that you’re a RINO. We get it. You don’t have to keep proving it to us. Go enjoy your retirement and let the people run their government like it was always supposed to be.
