Did you see “Republican” Mitt Romney waded back into the Swamp by getting himself elected Senator from Utah? Then, before he was even shown where to park his posterior on the Senate floor, he penned an op-ed piece slamming the sitting Republican President.
This is so full of irony. The so-called “Republican” Romney, who couldn’t get elected president, publishes a commentary in the ultra-liberal Washington Post, criticizing the job Trump is doing. Recall that Trump is the Republican candidate who did get elected. In full disclosure, having no better option, I voted for Romney over Barack Obama. Then again, I would have voted for a ham sandwich over Obama.
Romney, perhaps the poster-child for “RINO” (Republican in Name Only) specifically called into question Trump’s character. This from the guy who made his wealth by starting and running Bain Capital, a private investment equity firm that specialized in buying companies, firing the employees, skimming the wealth off the company, and then allowing the company to fall into bankruptcy.
Romney went on to claim that Trump has hurt our reputation around the world, particularly naming Germany, Britain, France, and Canada – all nations embroiled in their own issues. Seems the citizens of those countries no longer believe in their liberal leadership.
The United States gave away $50 billion last year to 196 countries, including an eye-popping $465 million to Russia. Perhaps if we were to keep some of that money, those countries might decide we’re not so bad after all. We could take those American bucks and pay down our own debt, rather than mortgaging our grandchildren’s future, as past politicians have done.
There is no sense in going on to paraphrase the rest of his op-ed, as I would only bore you. Suffice to say it was filled with words and phrases that one would have thought Romney won the presidency rather than just senator from a small state.
Ask yourself though, why would a well-known fellow Republican start off his senatorial career by kicking the sitting president of his own party? What is the end-game? Surely, it couldn’t be that he did not get the Secretary of State job when he interviewed with Trump back in 2016?
I hope you have read this far, as perhaps by now you are tired of me defending Trump. You might even be thinking to yourself, “there goes Webber again prattling on about defending Trump.” Quite frankly, I get tired of defending Trump, too.
But you see folks, that’s what the Left, the media, op-ed writers even from the Journal, and the rest of the Swamp does, they beat on Trump. They don’t want him in the office – he wasn’t supposed to win. It was supposed to be Hillary’s job so we could get on with the elitists business of the New World Order. They need to destroy Trump at all costs. Every day that groups sings the mantra that Trump is a horrible person and needs to be thrown out of the Oval Office.
We know what Trump’s faults are and don’t need to be reminded of it daily. Yes, he is rude, crude, blunt, and somewhat irascible – after all he is from New York City, what would you have expected? Vainly, his hair is too long and he can be thin-skinned. He might even have bad breath. At 72 years old he sometimes gets facts mixed up while talking and repeats himself. Who among us over 60 years of age doesn’t? And he’s doing this on the world’s biggest stage at no salary.
He thinks like a businessman, not a politician. Trump doesn’t think like a smooth-talking politician, proficient in the art of telling you what you want to hear and making you like it, while sticking their fingers in your wallet.
The next time you see another politician or op-ed writer rambling on about the evils of a President Trump I would like you to ask yourself a couple of questions. Please, for the love of God, question yourself:
What has any politician, past or present, done for me and;
What has Trump done specifically to me or country that has impacted me negatively?
Me personally, I’m not so enamored with politicians mortgaging away our grandchildren’s future, much like what’s been done here in Illinois. In fact, I detest it with every fiber of my being. I’m ready to try anything else that drains the swamp. I would have used stronger language but the Journal won’t print those words.
Sadly, I only get one shot a week to defend him.
