This is Mitt Romneys Moment (mega barf alert!)

Who might deliver us from this national train wreck? Who could restore a sense of balance to the Senate trial so that, whatever its outcome, it doesn’t feed Trump’s false narrative of victimization and populist rage? There’s one obvious answer: Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and custodian of what remains of his party’s moral and political balance.

History is knocking on Romney’s door. This is his moment to step away from a president who holds him in contempt and to speak for principle — by insisting that the Senate conduct an actual trial and weigh the House’s allegations that Trump abused power and obstructed Congress. This simple stand for an impartial trial (if backed by several more brave Republicans) would restore sanity to this process. Trump would probably still be acquitted, but it wouldn’t be in a firestorm of partisan rage…

You’re probably sick of quotes from the Federalist Papers, but try just one more, from Alexander Hamilton about the Senate’s role in impeachment: “Where else than in the Senate could have been found a tribunal sufficiently dignified, or sufficiently independent? What other body would be likely to feel confidence enough in its own situation, to preserve, unawed and uninfluenced, the necessary impartiality between an individual accused, and the representatives of the people, his accusers?”

Read that passage carefully, Sen. Romney. Hamilton is talking across the centuries to you.

Just commented on a Hill article regarding the Susan Collins.

We’ll see Plenty of these in the next days or however long.

It’s desperation and only if one doesn’t see the obvious and honestly weak strategy being deployed here, would they barf.

I’m kind of enjoying it.

“...custodian of what remains of his party’s moral and political balance...”

He should have choked to death on that BS.

The Deep State is so desperate so they send Ignatius out there to practically beg Mittens to fight for a Senate trial. They have zip, nada, nothing on this president.

Many of these Senators will stay away from this impeachment mess as it is rapidly becoming radioactive.

Hopefully they realize that if they vote to remove the President, they will forever be voted out of the majority and serve under a Democrat president. And conservatives will begin to rise up to throw them ALL out of office.

I hope Romney realizes if things had been a little different a while back, this would have been his impeachment. No rational democrat accusations required.

I seem to recall that his "moment" came and went in the blink of an eye when an obnoxious, overweight "Urinalist" named Candy Crowley backed his ass down during a debate.

It’s funny how they start with bipartisan beyond a shadow of doubt, then go with Schiff’s secret hearings, then Nadless’ charade, second-tier experts, one of whom doesn’t even support their theory, then a completely fabricated set of articles that their fearless leader is shared skitless to send to the Senate, and now they’re down to begging Mittens to save them.

And the idiot on CNN hasn’t a clue why popluar support is making a major shift toward Trump.
