The truth is, RINOs are a dying breed. Back in the late 90s, when RINOs walked the earth, we were forced to put up with a lot of betrayal and stupidity.
Instead of more MTGs who take their gloves off and fight, we get Mittens. At the State of the Union, Romney called out Republican Congressman George Santos who lies so much, he could be a Biden, except Mitt never called out a Biden.
But MTG is the new model of things. Mitt Romney is the old one, the encased-in-concrete dinosaur. He is, thankfully, a dying breed, and understand well that he was only elected because he lied about who he really is to the good people of Utah! He took the paradigmatic Lefty deceptiveness to heart, and falsely represented himself. And the people of Utah screwed up–they trusted him.
Bill Kristol, Jonah Goldberg, Paul Ryan and every other poseur conservative who stabbed their party’s 2016 nominee in the back always cited principle. They never said what that principle was.
Principle my butt! Being a craven Wormtongue is NOT being principled…
Opponents are OK with me. Traitors are not. I’m fine with opposition–but not with pretending to be something you aren’t.
