    I’ll quote an FB friend here: In this piece, VDH eloquently defends President Trump while gently performing a live autopsy on Mittens.

    Mitt Romney’s Naïve Incoherence (Victor Davis Hanson)

    But, ironically, all such long-standing repulsion at Trump’s behavior (even if it did crest in December as Romney alleges) raises the question, again, why would Romney have accepted Trump’s endorsement for his senate run in 2018, especially given the fact that he probably did not need it to be elected in Utah?

    And given that Trump was a known quantity (and known often to be abrasive) for decades, why would Romney have sought out and accepted his endorsement in 2012 for his own presidential run? The obvious answers are that in a world of political pragmatism, all candidates are foolish to turn down endorsements from celebrities and sitting presidents. But is not the bar higher for ethicists, who argue that traditional definitions of character adjudicate successful or unsuccessful governance?…

    And he’s just warming up!

    Good interview and I very much liked Rand Paul’s attitude.

    Romney lost a very winnable election in 2012 because he basically stopped campaigning and wouldn’t tell the truth about Barack Obama or challenge his record. We’d already had four years to gain an understanding of just what kind of America Obama wanted. And it wasn’t to our liking in the least.

    In 2008 (for those who didn’t do their due diligence and, IMO, BHO’s opposition didn’t) McCain was running against pretty much an unknown quantity and wasn’t used to working hard at winning. In a way his loss is more forgivable than Romney’s.

    But remember after Romney’s loss one of his sons said his father didn’t really want to be President anyway? That didn’t get much press, but I found it shocking. I and many of my friends had donated money to Mitt’s campaign and his win seemed very much within reach. Then to find he didn’t really care about winning, thus making us realize we’d been duped and taken advantage of, was anger-making.


    Rand Paul is right about the virtue signaling, about the holier-than-thou (my words, not his) attitude. Mitt continues to have a compromised character. I wouldn’t trust him to transport my dog, let alone lead my country now.

    I spit on his oped.
