Donald Trumpís gift to Mitt Romney: Relevance
The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | October 26, 2019 | Mark Leibovich

“I don’t feel that there’s a need to be careful at this stage of my life,” said Sen. Mitt Romney, who seems intent on proving as much these days.

Romney, the freshman Republican from Utah — as opposed to the former governor of Massachusetts who ran twice for president — has discovered that hyper self-restraint might be overrated. Credit to Donald Trump for this lesson, a rare instance of something Romney might emulate about a president he otherwise has little use for.

“I would have been far less disciplined when I was running,” Romney said, meaning for president, in 2008 and 2012. If only he had the example of Trump’s campaign in 2016 to follow, an imprudent ramble that somehow landed this most unruly of characters in the White House.

“’I don’t feel that there’s a need to be careful at this stage of my life,’ said Sen. Mitt Romney...”

I’d think the closer you are to DEATH, you need to be more repentant and honest with yourself!

Loser. Get off the stage!

“If only he had the example of Trump’s campaign in 2016 to follow,...”

So, basically you’re saying Trump is smarter, bolder, and all around much more clever than you, and if you were just as smart as Trump, you might have won? Fat chance, Pierre. Trump would have you uncontrollably soiling your magic underwear in minutes.

Mittens finds he gets more favorable press from the evil leftist media when he sides with them.

And yet the Media Party derided the Republican campaign in 2012 as divisive, racist, and other label fitting to make them look like Freddy Kruger as opposed how they are mentioning “old style moderate” in this article. Honestly, these people must be living in a dreamworld when they write crap like this. Are they actually aware that more and more people do not bother to waste money on newspaper or magazine subscriptions or tune into CNN or nightly newscasts?

Well, Romney could consider finally using his fame and influence to actually advance conservatism. That would be a true late-life risk - daring to say something the MSM might not approve of. :)

“I don’t feel that there’s a need to be careful at this stage of my life,”

Seeing as how from this stage of his life on he’ll be ‘Mittens Delecto’, maybe he should have felt a need to be a bit more careful. But at least he can join Fredo Cuomo and Carlos Danger in the asshat hall of fame.

Romney is letting his liberal tendencies loose, and the media is applauding? Yet another dog bites man story. Yawn.

A truly idiotic premise. Delecto is now less relevant than Spartacus.

Has Pepe issued a statement congratulating President Trump on his successful military operation in taking out al-Baghdadi? Yeah. I figured as much.
