Sen. Mitt Romney: The profound moral idiocy of never-Trump Republicans

Written By | Apr 24, 2019

WASHINGTON. Democrats would like nothing more than to impeach President Donald Trump for obstructing an investigation that Special Counsel Robert Mueller grudgingly admitted had no underlying crime. That “crime,” of course, was the crazy conspiracy theory that Trump and his close aides and family members colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to deny Hillary Clinton her rightful place in the Oval Office.

Anger born of innocence

And what was the obstruction? That the president angerly, loudly, publicly, and steadfastly denied his guilt. That he ordered but never followed through with his desire to fire Mueller and his Democrat-friendly team of investigators. And finally, that Trump undermined the two-year Russia investigation by calling it by its rightful name: “witch hunt.”

You see, Republican presidents aren’t known for standing up to the smears and attacks of Democrats or their propaganda machine, the mainstream media. But Trump isn’t really a Republican. For all intents and purposes, he’s the nation’s first MAGA Party president.

Trump also has testosterone coursing through his veins, unlike the tangential members of the GOP’s low-energy Bush wing, of which the wooden-headed junior Senator from Utah, little Mittens Romney, is a member in good standing.

Having perused the Mueller Report, Mittens told the press:

“I am sickened at the extent and pervasiveness of dishonesty and misdirection by individuals in the highest office of the land, including the President. I am also appalled that, among other things, fellow citizens working in a campaign for president welcomed help from Russia.”

This from the awe-inspiring GOP presidential loser of 2012. The Beehive State sage who memorably said:

“I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that’s the America millions of Americans believe in. That’s the America I love.”

A fortune without sacred honor

That Romney has amassed a considerable financial fortune and was recently elected to the world’s most exclusive club, proves you don’t need much in the way of gray matter to succeed in a land so rich in opportunity. One where millions of successful Americans succeed successfully in the successful way successful Americans have always succeeded.

Nonetheless, that explains Sen. Romney’s remarkable Forrest Gump-like rise to the successful heights of, well, success.

His moral obligation to be smart

Before vacant-headed never-Trump Republicans like Romney begin moralizing, they should read the essay by educator John Erskine titled, “The Moral Obligation to be Intelligent.”

As Erskine wrote:

“It is the moral obligation of an intelligent creature to find out as far as possible whether a given action leads to a good or a bad end; and that any system of ethics that excuses him from that obligation is vicious. If I give you poison, meaning to give you wholesome food, I have – to say the least – not done a good act; and unless I intend to throw overboard all pretense to intelligence, I must feel some responsibility for that trifling neglect to find out whether what I gave you was food or poison.”

The hunt for traitors

Romney and his ilk would join Democrats in distracting Americans with poisonous talk of impeachment while ignoring the low-hanging fruit of genuine political treachery. The treasonous actions of a Democratic administration, a Democratic presidential campaign, weaponized Deep State agencies, and an FBI-paid British spy with spoon-fed disinformation from Kremlin sources.



However, it is their plot to overthrow the legitimate victor in the 2016 presidential election that requires investigation – with grand jury indictments to follow.

Republicans like Romney abandon “all pretense to intelligence” by continuing to focus their wrath on an innocent Trump. All while ignoring the guilt of Democrats and complicit Republicans in the midst of their ever-evolving coup attempts.

But ending these plots requires a majority of Republicans to ignore Sen. Mitt Romney and other profound moral idiots so eager to drink the Democrat and media’s impeachment Kool-Aid.
