Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) is one of the old, real Republicans, but he stands nearly alone in the Senate. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) might be another, but they are a dying breed where the values of integrity, patriotism, and service once reigned strong. The party they have supported their entire lives has transformed into the irrational, chaotic, and cowardly party of Donald Trump. When we hear Senator Romney, his words wash over us, much like a calming bath of rightness.
Trump has been running around like a chicken with his head cut off, and that is exactly what happens to chicken, as he attempts a daylight coup. The problem is even most Trumpsters shout right back at him “I can’t hear you.”
NBC noted that the president’s attempts at overturning the electoral college should not be a part of a democratic party. He filed 55 lawsuits with individual swing states, and has been losing them one-after-another, POUS just keeps repeating that which has failed again and again and again. That is the often-used description of insanity.
Some Republican legislators follow blindly along this president’s rocky path. It does, indeed, have a deep cliff on the outside, and the footing is unsure. But for those who linger and the Trump campaign continues, POTUS will keep on throwing out “unsubstantiated claims about voter fraud,” according to The Newsweek magazine.
Romney said “This is madness,” NBC journalist Frank Thorp V tweeted from the National Republican Senatorial Committee offices:
‘ROMNEY on GOP Reps threatening to protest electoral college vote: “This is madness. We have a process, recounts are appropriate, going to the court is approp & pursuing every legal avenue is appropriate, but trying to get electors not to do what the people voted to do is madness’
Representative Mo Brooks (R-AL) has claimed repeatedly that the election was a fraud. Election experts disagreed, and said Brooks’ claim of noncitizens votes and changed voter ID laws in swing states were false.
Romney told an NBC reporter:
‘It would be saying, ‘Look, let’s not follow the vote of the people, let’s instead do (it) what we want. That would not be the way a democratic republic ought to work,’
Brooks said he wanted to lead a group of Trumpster legislators to oppose the election on January 6. That is the day Congress counts the Electoral College votes. Brooks would only succeed in delaying the inevitable, President-elect Joe Biden’s certification as president of these United States. Finally.
Technically, any House and Senate member would be able to object to this process. Then, both chambers have to approve the vote. That would be nearly impossible, given that the House is carried by the Democrats.
Just last week, Attorney General William Barr said that there was no evidence of fraud.
