Mitt Romney is as pure a Republican as anyone can find. The Utah senator carried his party’s presidential nomination banner in 2012 but lost to President Barack Obama in that year’s election.
So, when the distinguished lawmaker questions the wisdom of the Republican National Committee’s censure of two GOP lawmakers, it would do the party’s elite to rethink what they’ve done.
Mitt Romney’s niece, Ronna McDaniel, is chair of the Republican National Committee. Uncle Mitt said this about the censure, according to Business Inside:
Speaking at the US Capitol, Romney said the resolution condemning his fellow Republicans “could not have been a more inappropriate message.”
“One, to sanction two people of character as they did. But number two, to suggest that a violent attack on the seat of democracy is legitimate political discourse is so far from accurate as to shock and make people wonder what we’re thinking,” Romney said.
Romney reportedly exchanged text message with his niece, suggesting the very thing he said at the Capitol Building.
Indeed, for the party to censure Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger because they want to seek the truth behind the 1/6 riot by itself is idiotic and illogical.
Moreover, for Chairwoman McDaniel to dismiss the riot as a show of “legitimate political discourse” ignores what the whole world witnessed on 1/6 in real time. It bore no resemblance to anything “legitimate.” It was a riot staged by a mob of thousands of traitors … incited by the fiery rhetoric of the cult leader who masqueraded as president of the United States.
Listen to Uncle Mitt, Ronna. He speaks with much more wisdom than the moron you are backing.
