    Republicans and Democrats voted straight party line on the Trump acquittal with one exception..

    Mitt Romney defied enormous pressure and an avalanche of threats to vote his conscience, his God and the U.S. Constitution.

    That takes enormous courage and integrity, unlike any we have seen in DC in many years. As a Republican, he didn't bow to the wannabe dictator in the White House.

    Mitt Romney is the most qualified politician in DC to become the next President.

      I too admire Mitt. He's the last Republican in the party. The rest are the party of Trump. I've always respected Mitt's integrity, as I did John McCain's.

        Yes, Romney reminds me of McCain as well as the Republican senators from back in the '70s and '80s. They all had courage and integrity.

          This is a thing of the past in the Trump Party. They've sold their souls to the most low class creature on earth. They simply do not care how many lies he tells as long as he's their guy.

          Do you know a more dishonest person. Yes, I know Putin and Kim Jon Un are in the running, but Trump makes them look like amateur liars.

            You're right. There is only the Trump Party. There is no Republican Party anymore.

              Mitt is the only true member of the Republican party left. The rest are not patriotic Americans who want the best for their country. They want the best for their demigod.

      Much like the Democrats in the House - about 1% defied the party.  Of course, it was well known that in neither case would there be any affect on the final verdict...not sure how much "integrity" it takes to keep the people back home happy in such a case.

      Romney's time was 2012... he didn't convince America at that time.

      He may try again in 2024... and maybe he would have a chance then.

      It would have been great if he had won in 2012, he was the first Presidential candidate to raise the alarm about China, and talk about the trade deficit and theft of intellectual properties.

      It would have been a benefit to have a president who chose to address that issue in 2012 rather than 4 years later when it was even more painful and politically dangerous to do so.

      And he may be an excellent choice for post Trump, he has a very liberal mindset where social and support issues are concerned, but has a strong grasp of doing what is best for business and the economy.

      A moderate may be a better choice in 2024 than a hard push to the left, it would certainly be viewed by the corporate and investment worlds as a better option than a Sanders or Warren type of candidate from the Democrats.

        Yes. I made my decision after going to one of his campaign rallies.

        I have also said on here multiple times that I would have voted for Romney or Kasich if they had gotten the GOP nomination in 2016.

    Romney for president? He's already run. He was measured and found to be lacking. Of course, maybe he could run as a Democrat?

      Multiple Presidents including Trump and Richard Nixon ran for the office and lost before finally winning it.

        I would like to see proof that President Donald Trump ever ran for political office before being elected in 2016.  I doubt there is such proof as it didn't happen.

            Based on the information you provided, Technically, we're both wrong.  President Donald Trump did run during the a presidential primary on the Reform ticket, but he dropped out. So, he didn't run for president several times. I was wrong as he actually did previously run for president.

            I will agree, based on what you provided, he talked about it many times to many news sources.

                You are absolutely right, you didn't say several times.  My apologies.  I meant to say that I was wrong because I said President Donald Trump never before ran for president.  He did run as a third party candidate and dropped out of the race.  BUT, unlike President Richard Nixon, President Donald Trump never ran for president and lost.  He never previously made it past the primary process.  So, yeah, we were both wrong.

    I can think of 47% of Americans that won't vote for him, and with more of the voting public (millennials) going socialist, I douth an old school conservative corporate Republican could win. He's too much like Regan, not enough like a clown.

  4. PrettyPanther profile image84
    PrettyPantherposted 2 months ago

    He would have to beat Trump in the primaries or run as a third option. He's too erudite and reasonable  for the  typical GOP primary voter and too conservative to win the non-GOP vote.

      promisemposted 2 months agoin reply to this

      If the GOP throws him out of the party, which some are demanding, he could easily run as an independent.

      Losing won't matter to him because he'll still have his Senate seat.

      I agree with you. It's against my religion to vote for a Republican lol any Republican, so I wouldn't vote for him. But I do respect him for standing behind his own integrity.

        With all due respect, shouldn't we vote for the best candidate for the country regardless of party?

          I think she was joking?

          But, yes, I think we need to vote for people of integrity and stop elevating slimy con men/women.

    Mitt Romney has always opposed Donald Trump. So his negative vote should not be a surprise. He is qualified to be president but unfortunately, I don't see any way he can win the nomination.

    As someone who is not from the US, Mitt Romney's speech is what I thought the Republican party was about. I was able to identify as being more Republican than Democrat. The coming of Trump, however, created an image crisis for the Republicans and it will be difficult for Republicans to attract new voters from outside their shrinking voting blocks after Trump.

    1. Randy Godwin profile image91
      Randy Godwinposted 2 months agoin reply to this

      Mitt is the only honorable Republican left in the party, Al. After McCain died, most of the party died with him. The Tea Party merged with the supremacists to totally erase any sort of dignity the party ever had.

      Neither the Democrat or Republican parties are what they used to be.

      The Republicans are being redefined by Trump, and so long as he is President they will continue to be the Party of the 'forgotten Americans' in addition to being the party of 'corporations & christianity'.

      The Democrats are a conglomeration-in-crisis.  The party that was once the 'worker's party'  (aka the union's party) abandoned the American workers during the mid-90s.  It took a while for Americans to catch on to this change in the party and even now, amidst the Democrats talking about open borders and universal healthcare for all some people do not realize the drastic shift that has taken place as to what the Democrats now represent.

      With that said, both sides are filled with politicians who are as corrupt as can be, and if they have been in Washington for 20 years or more, chances are, the only things they are loyal to is their bank accounts.
