Skip to comments.Distinguished pol of the week: If Romney can do it, others can
Posted on 11/06/2018 6:38:39 AM PST by kevcol
The jury is out on whether Mitt Romney, the nearly certain winner in the Senate race in Utah, will be a powerful voice challenging President Trump or whether he will, as so many other Republicans have, crumble. However, his essay this week in defense of a free press was as excellent start.
Romney should be credited with responsibly defending the First Amendment. It is good practice for the oath hell take to uphold the Constitution (including all the amendments) before entering the Senate. Republicans who think the media really is the enemy of the people and/or support Trumps assaults on the First Amendment have no business holding public office.
For reminding conservatives that the press is an essential institution, we can say, well done, Mr. Romney.

New Cain Mini-Me praised by fake news.
Sometimes they find a new maverick to love.
No clown that the Post holds up needs to “defend the free press”, because Trump isn’t doing anything to make the press un-”free”.
He’s just criticizing them, which is everyone’s right.
We need other republicans (not just Trump) standing up against Romney. Romney is still the same old bully he was in high school when he bullied the gay kid. WE NEED GOP SENATORS THAT HAVE SOME GUTS to stand up to Romney day in and day out.
This dog Rubin should be reminded that the First Amendment also protects Donald Trump’s right to call the media whatever the hell he wants to call them.
Trump does not criticize the entire press, only the liars.
Romney needs to be careful. He could make millions of us sorry we ever voted for him.
-—Trump does not criticize the entire press, only the liars.-—
Even if he did, it would still be OK.
These dummies think it’s persecution if you don’t constantly show them public respect. It ain’t.
He’s creating a “volatile atmosphere”. Whatever the #$$$ that means :)
And well stated by the way.
As for this POS Romney, WHY DIDN’T YOU JUST STAY AWAY?!!?
Go box Evander again you MORON.
And yes, he is a mccain in the making. Or already made.
it’s so ludicrous. the first amendment applies to people also, who have a right to free speech. it doesn’t protect the press from criticism (and his criticism is entirely warranted).
Romney’s distinguished cuz he’s a loser.
Tariffs will destroy the economy. Tariffs get enacted, 100K manufacturing jobs. Suddenly, “WE” created jobs. These people all suck and lead from behind. That’s what Trump criticizers all do. Complain and then take credit.
Free Press to the media means if you question the veracity of the news you are an enemy of the 1st amendment.
Thats with these scumbags think.
I used to live in Mass. I voted for Romney for Senate. I voted for Romney for Governor. I voted for Romney for President. And then, in 2016 Romney convinced me to walk away from the GOP and I crawled over broken glass to vote for Trump (actually had the flu but voted anyway).
Romney won’t be a powerful voice - he already is disliked by many in the party nationally. When he tries doing the maverick thing the only support he will get is from from the left which will further erode any support he has.
The media must’ve gotten the narrative right about this traceling turd in 2012.
How many days will he wait before he changes parties and gives the Ds another Senate seat?
Romney will NEVER win another national primary. Hell be torn to shreds.
Dear Jennifer Rubin,
Is it alright if conservatives consider you another irrelevant, disconnected, self-important hack? Too bad...
Two of my not favorite not people not Mitt Romney not Jennifer not Rubin.
