Donald Trump is incapable of original thought, needless to say. That’s why he recycles tweets and talking points from Fox News.

Kimberly Strassel is a columnist for the Wall Street Journal and an admirer of Trump.

The senate Republicans hung themselves. Their fate cannot rationally be linked to Mitt Romney. What can possibly be this woman’s logic? Romney did the right thing and in so doing he hurt vulnerable Republicans, who would have been aided if he did the wrong thing? The problem with this viewpoint is that it’s optics focused. If Romney had made the entire situation look partisan, as the Republicans had hoped, that would have helped the other senators. But choosing to go against the optics of the situation and come down on the right side of history, was a bad thing.

I guess this is the twisted thinking that we’re going to see for a while. It certainly underscores the Republican dogma of this age — don’t worry about right and wrong, just put up the right appearance. As to the comment about Chuck Schumer wanting to retake the Senate — of course Schumer wants to retake the senate. That’s not some hidden manipulation on Schumer’s part, that’s the fervent prayer of every Democrat alive — and probably some of the dead ones are clanking their chains in favor of that proposition as well.

It’s quite clear who the Republican whipping post is going to be in 2020, at least so far as Trump is concerned.

Oh, Trump just wants to sabotage Romney’s prospects once the former is out of the picture. He senses deep down that he, not Romney, will be blamed for the subsequent loss of Republican fortunes. Unlike W, who got a pass for being Republican royalty through his family, Trump will be cast out and vilified once he’s out of the Oval Office, whenever that happens.

I suspect Romney will be around a lot longer than Trump.

A VERY safe bet, Anastasia. My problems with Mitt aside, he knows the American conservative movement is going to be the most damaged institution of all the ones Trump has touched. As such, he’s positioned himself as the guy to clean all that up. I have doubts, however, on whether he understands the scale of the damage yet.

Romney hurt some very good Republican Senators, …

Note the oxymoron; “Good Republicans”
The damage wasn’t Romney’s doing . It’s just that there’s no such thing as a good Republican . Mitt , like John Bolton fell from grace over in their shadowland by breaking protocol and committing the sin of voicing their conscience and telling the truth . Everyone of those Senators who are scapegoating Mitt Romney are good for nothing liars

Guess they have forgotten whom they serve. They have put this man above God and we the people.

Trump seeking revenge, as usual. “Impeachment Hoax”? Not a chance, this is reality. Trump and his cohorts are a great danger to American democracy, and people understand this. I salute Romney’s courage.

I think it’s laughable that any dumbass Republican would think Romney did what he did in the hopes that it would put him in the WH. If anything he knew that he was killing any chance of being a “consensus” candidate if Trump melts down so badly his Cabinet is more scared for their very lives than Trump ruining their careers and invokes the 25th. Or if Trump’s clearly declining health is much worse than we know (don’t forget that mysterious trip to the hospital a little while back) and he drops dead in the months ahead. Romney was dead… Read more »

Romney’s courageous move was about the only bright spot to me in the political landscape last week.

Who da thunk it…

People in Utah don’t have a problem with Romney. They’re the ones who he’s responsible to.

PJ: While there is a tremendous amount of support for Romney in Utah, there are also some not so supportive. I’m one and I live in Utah. However, he did the right thing.

Mitt Romney wasn’t taking a shit at anybody. He was voting for what he believes in. I know most republicans won’t understand that. They only believe in money and power. If anyone is hurt by anything that Mitt did it’s their own dam fault and don’t come crying to Mitt because you shit on the constitution. It ain’t his problem. I will say when they write the history of this for our children to learn from Mitt Romney will be a hero and the rest will be cowardly,partisan, a-holes!

Republicans are not likely to lose the Senate in 2020, because of the infantile Dumocratic Schiff Show paraded before the nation during the past three years. This Dumocratic temper tantrum is an indication that all the Dumocrats have as a program, is smoke and mirrors. They shouted “impeachment” for three years while frantically looking in every closet in the White House and the Capital Building for any sign of a crime. Coming up empty, they then sat pouting while our beloved President Donald John Trump gave a rousing SOTU speech to thunderous applause! We the Deplorables will NOT forget this… Read more »

Yep, you self-identified deplorables celebrate lack of civility when you commit it. Sorry, that’s not how it works. If anything, the Democrats showed amazing restraint, thanks to Pelosi, As you well know, the GOP would have not hesitated to impeach Obama if he had had banned Muslims as Trump illegally did back in 2017. The GOP would have been the noisiest critics, and rightly so. As you also know, the GOP spent eight years searching every nook and cranny for something, anything to impeach Obama. Meanwhile, the Democrats did not come up empty. Many Senate Republicans agree that the House… Read more »

You must find reality such a scary place, what with it’s liberal bias and all. No wonder, you’re so far inside your little bubble, you can’t even see out.
Your bubble is set to burst.

Reminds me of 2 failed Benghazi investigations. Failed uranium 1 investigations. You’ve got to stop watching Fox News. When you use their talking points to people who think for themselves rather than take spoon fed information from entertainers on an entertainment channel, you out yourself as someone who is willfully ignorant. The willfully ignorant do not ‘sound’ smart. Their logic is blatantly specious at best, and usually ludicrous. I’m sort of embarrassed for you, actually.

When this is over, find a place to hide, scrub your social media accounts and NEVER again presume that anyone thinks you’re worth listening to. When Trump is gone, so is your shield. You’ll be on your way to the same margins you and yours have forced so many others. I don’t call your kind Deplorables. I call you Irredeemables.

No witnesses and they are throwing the stones sound about right for them. WWJD. This will be interesting, because now maybe Romney will know how that comment he made about the 47% of the people felt. It his party throwing the stones. He and all of them could of done the right thing from the start. WOW he had a conscious and good on him. What trump and republican did was assume they had it in the bag. But they counted out Romney from the start. Maybe?
