GOP Senate Coward Caucus: Republicans are 'secretly whispering' support for Romney's attack on Trump

Profiles in Chickenshit
Mod: It appears that a lot of Republicans in the Senate actually agree with Mister Mittens, but somehow they are too gutless to say so in public.

Republicans are ‘secretly whispering’ support for Romney’s attack on Trump: GOP operative Rick Wilson (Raw Story link): Over the holidays, incoming Senator Mitt Romney penned an op-ed savaging President Donald Trump’s character. Although he gave the President credit for policies like criminal justice reform and his tax bill, Romney said that Trump does not possess the qualities needed in a commander-in-chief. He also knocked the President’s trade wars.

“Policies and appointments are only a part of a presidency,” he said. “A president must also unite us, inspire us, and defend our vital institutions.”

Trump quickly shot back, disparaging Romney for not being a “team player.”

In an op-ed published in the Daily Beast Wednesday, Rick Wilson, Republican operative and the author of “Everything Trump Touches Dies: A Republican Strategist Gets Real About the Worst President Ever” noted that Romney is far from the only Republican who feels this way. “Most Republicans knew Romney was right then and they sure as hell know he’s right today, despite the reflexive backlash that spread like a wildfire of stupid from the President’s Twitter feed to /r/The_Donald, to talk radio,” Wilson writes.

Mitt Romney, The Enemy of the State, is a role I imagine he never thought he’d play in American political life, but the impact of his words is causing a full-fledged meltdown in the Trump-supporting media apparatus on the right. I expect QAnon to predict Romney’s arrest and transport to GITMO any time now,” he continues.

Mitt Romney isn’t trolling Donald Trump just for the sake of lulz. He isn’t poking the orange bear just because he can. The Senator from Utah isn’t playing Trump’s game of insult and acrimony, and Trump knows it,” he adds. “Behind Trump’s bluster and swagger, and the ten-toothed roar of his arena faithful, the GOP just had its collective head kicked in during the 2018 campaign.

The loss of 40 House seats, the trade war disaster, a volatile stock market, a teetering economy, the reality of Mueller’s growing case against the Maximum Leader, and Trump’s foreign policy recklessness have left Republican elected officials disheartened and shell-shocked.”

Yet most Republicans continue to fear taking on the President. “Mitt Romney’s editorial is making the rounds for speaking the words that much of the GOP lacks the courage to put their names behind. Many of the voices rising to condemn him are secretly whispering, “Mitt, it was great. I agree with you, but I have to defend him, you know. I’ve got to worry about a primary…” Wilson says.

Wilson envisions a strong role for Romney to play in Congress. “He has a chance to be a voice for the facts, for principles, and for personal integrity The coward caucus won’t get the headlines, the media attention, and the political capital that flows from calling on Republicans to live up to their principles and for providing a living contrast to Trump’s egregious, juvenile behavior. Romney just might.”

  2. https://www.rawstory.com/2019/01/articles-impeachment-trump-will-filed-today-california-democrat/

    California Democrat Rep. Brad Sherman is expected to files articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump when Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) convenes the newly Democratic-dominated House on Thursday.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Sherman, who attempted to file the articles in 2017, will find a more receptive audience following the midterm elections that saw the Democrats take control of the House.

    “Sherman’s articles of impeachment accuse Trump of obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James B. Comey, among other wrongdoing,” reports the Times.

    “There is no reason it shouldn’t be before the Congress,” Sherman said in an interview. “Every day, Donald Trump shows that leaving the White House would be good for our country.”

    On Thursday morning, Pelosi refused to rule out impeachment proceedings.

  3. Donald Trump:
    "I know more about drones than anybody."
    "I would have been a good general."
    "I could be the most popular person in Europe."
    "The Vatican has the biggest wall of them all."

    So no, he didn't quit Adderall.

    1. There is an op-ed in the LA Times today; "2019 will be the worst year of Donald Trump’s life"
      I wish, but since he's so clueless I don't think he actually has bad days, or years. Every day he is a Winner. Except when he eats a bad cheeseburger or something.

  5. Nancy Pelosi says she won't rule out indictment, impeachment for Trump

    Incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she wouldn't rule out President Trump being indicted while in office, describing the topic as "an open discussion."

    During an exclusive interview with TODAY's Savannah Guthrie, the House Democratic leader said it's possible that special counsel Robert Mueller could seek an indictment against the sitting president, despite Justice Department guidelines against such action.

    "I think it is an open discussion. I think that is an open discussion in terms of the law," Pelosi said, on the eve of reclaiming her former title as speaker of the House. She will become the first lawmaker in recent history to hold that office twice when the 116th Congress convenes Thursday

    Conservative Columnist Asks For Barf Bag After Seeing Trump’s Cabinet Praise Him Like A Dictator

    Conservative columnist Mona Charen had some harsh criticism for Donald Trump’s cabinet on Wednesday after they met for the first time of the new year.

    In the meeting, Trump officials were quick to heap praise on the president as if they’re working for some third-world dictator.

    “Look, honestly, you do wonder, do they keep the barf bags underneath the table there at those cabinet meetings?” Charen said during an interview with Chris Hayes.

    The blind praise of Trump is unprecedented

    It’s typical for a president’s staff to support his or her agenda, but the level of suck-uppery we see on display in front of Trump is unprecedented – and scary.

    That’s because part of the job description when you work for this administration is that you must blindly and publicly support Trump no matter what he says and does. If you don’t, you lose your job. It’s partly why no adults remain in this White House.

    It’s the stuff of authoritarian regimes, not democracies.

    As former Obama White House cabinet secretary Chris Lu said on Wednesday, “If one of us, whether staff or cabinet, had ever done something like this, we would have been mercilessly mocked by President Obama, and in the Trump administration, this gets you the job of attorney general.”

    That was put on full display on Wednesday as Trump’s cabinet members left their self-respect at the door before meeting with their boss.

  7. Numbers posted today by @USTreasury show the National Debt ended 2018 more than $2-trillion larger than on the day Pres Trump took office. It represents a 10% increase in the Debt on Pres Trump's watch. National Debt now stands at $21.974-trillion. Now how is wonder boy going to fix that?
