PATRIOT RETORT: Nancy’s Childish Stunt

. . . I’m not offended by this childish stunt. Truth be told, I’m delighted by it. Delighted that, live on television, Nancy Pelosi showed the American people just how little regard she and her scowling caucus of grumpy, ugly partisans have for us.

PJMedia: Trump Destroys Mitt Romney on Twitter Following His Vote to Convict

MICHAEL SNYDER: Mitt Romney Is The First Senator To Ever Vote To Convict A President From His Own Party

THE FEDERALIST: What Does Mitt Romney Even Stand For? An Investigation

AM THINKER: Explaining why Mitt Romney really voted to convict Trump

Mitt Romney wasn't voting for Trump's impeachment as much as he was voting to obviate the electoral will of millions. . . . Romney tries to hide his contempt for the average GOP voter behind a veneer of salt-and-peppered elder statesmanship. But he's just as petty and small as those he gets on his tiptoes to look down upon. Former staffers on the Romney campaign are rebuking their former boss, saying he's "motivated by bitterness and jealously." That's somewhat true, but it's not the full story. As much as Romney craves hero status among the Georgetown set, he hates that the very people who backed his presidential run also stood behind a vulgar reality TV host. The difference is that Trump won. Romney will never forgive Republicans for making that happen.

GG: I think the above commentaries all hit on part of why Romney did what he did, but I think the following article hits a little closer to the truth. See what you think.

I had the above article bookmarked for today, but then saw a similar article at The Federalist:
