Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney joined the fray today and made an impassioned speech against Donald Trump. Is Romney the last hope to speak to sane Republicans?
I think most people respect Mitt Romney, even if they don’t agree with his policies. Romney spoke directly and firmly.
Trump’s response was to suggest that when Romney ran, he was all but down on his knees. Given the double entendre of that statement, Trump should be ashamed of himself. That remark was the crowning blow in the land of low-class.
Will Republicans listen to Romney? My guess is his speech will do no good. Those who agree with him already wouldn’t consider voting for Trump. The Trump-followers wouldn’t have voted for Romney in the first place. The angry, the lewd, the bullies, are all right where they want to be and proud of it.
