Well, well, well. If there is one thing that Mitt Romney can be counted on, it would be looking out for himself. Which, in his case, means talking nonstop to the media … about Trump. In fact, Romney talks about Trump so often that one wonders exactly what Romney did before as a politician.
Whatever it was, he will most likely be known as one of the most anti-Trump RINOs in Washington, followed closely by McConnell and a few others, namely those who voted to impeachment Trump in the most absurd impeachment trial ever … at least since 2019, anyway.
That said, Romney has now apparently decided to stir the pot by running his mouth about Trump and 2024, and it is safe to say that his commentary would make most reasonable people suspicious.
According to Romney, Trump remains immensely popular, to the extent that his name has soared to the top of the list of all potential presidential contenders for 2024. On top of that, Romney stated that he would expect Trump to win “in a landslide.”
“I look at the polls, and the polls show that among the names being floated as potential contenders in 2024, if you put President Trump in there among Republicans, he wins in a landslide.” [Source: Washington Times]
Well, perhaps Romney should spend more time ruminating upon why Trump remains so possible, rather than ranting away in such a manner that a person unfamiliar with individual American politicians would assume he is just another rather vocal Democrat.
Speaking of being vocal, Romney also weighed in on Trump’s voice, which he asserts is “the loudest voice.”
“He has by far the largest voice and a big impact in my party … I don’t know if he’s planning to run in 2024 or not, but if he does, I’m pretty sure he would win the nomination.” [Source: News Max]
Interesting use of the phrase “my party,” in particular the word “my.” Despite being one syllable and two letters long, it carries significant connotations. Romney clearly does not consider Trump part of “his” party, in spite of the fact that Trump served as a Republican President from 2016-2020.
In fact, maybe by “my party,” Romney may have been secretly alluding to some other party, namely the Democrats, considering his own “influence” has been far better for leftists than conservatives.
Despite his “predictions,” which do not exactly require a magician’s talents, Romney also asserted that he would “not” be voting for Trump in 2024.
“I would not be voting for President Trump again. I haven’t voted for him in the past,” he said. “I would probably be getting behind somebody who I thought more represented the tiny wing of the Republican Party that I represent.”

Well, thanks for sharing the most non-mysterious piece of news ever, Romney. As if any other outcome would be possible. After all, voting to impeach Trump not once, but twice, makes it rather clear you “won’t” be voting for him.
One also wonders why Romney “won’t” switch to the Democrat Party, but apparently he enjoys generating more headlines as a rebel Republican, despite the immense, ongoing damage being caused to the United States.
Fortunately, Lindsey Graham, who is infinitely more reasonable than Romney, asserted the need for Trump not only in 2024, but also in 2022.
“I want us to come together as much as possible. I think we need to be united around getting the majority back. … The worst possible outcome for the Republican Party is to continue to argue amongst itself.” [Source: The Hill]
Absolutely correct, Mr. Graham.
Unfortunately, the Republicans have already been arguing amongst themselves, with the apex of this argument on full display with 7 GOP Senators voting to impeach Trump. Nonetheless, it is quite clear that Trump’s influence will never leave again, nor should it.
After all, he’s one of the few public servants Americans have left …
