Romney Sides With Democrats on Impeachment, Gets Hit By Club for Growth Ad Campaign

Mitt Handle the Truth
The Club for Growth has a new television advertisement, “Handle,” criticizing Senator Mitt Romney for siding with Democrats in the impeachment process. The ad will run from January 30 to February 1 on Fox News in Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C.

“Unfortunately, Mitt Romney continues to side with Democrats in their sham impeachment of President Trump, and voters deserve to know about his support of radical-liberals and their attempts to undo the results of the 2016 election and reverse the enormous economic gains achieved under Trump,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh.

In October, Club for Growth ran another TV ad on Romney’s support of Democrats and impeachment.

Although Romney has received national attention for his criticisms of the president and become the face of Republican dissent to the current administration, voters in the Beehive state seem to be paying attention to the message about Mitt Romney from our friend Mr. McIntosh and the Club for Growth.

A poll, conducted by UtahPolicy and Salt Lake City-based Y2 Analytics, found that 46% of registered voters approve of freshman Sen. Mitt Romney’s job performance while a little over half disapprove.

Tellingly, Romney was shown to be more popular among Utah Democrats than senior Senator Republican Mike Lee. Nearly a third of “strong” Democrats polled approve of Romney’s job performance while only 5% approve of Lee’s.

Daniel Hicken, chairman of the Utah County Democratic Party, said he is not surprised there is a strong partisan divide among approval ratings of the two Republican senators.

While the majority of Utahns are conservative, Hicken said that there is a “sizable minority” of Democrats whose ideologies align closer with Romney than with Lee.

“I think Mitt Romney is trying to better represent (a wide variety of) Utah citizens whereas I think Mr. Lee is approaching it more from his constitutionalist view,” said Hicken.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs has been a constant critic of Romney’s RINO ways calling him a "creep," "reprehensible," a "treacherous fool," a "snake" and questioned his intelligence.

"Who would trust this guy for a heartbeat?" Dobbs once remarked.

On Monday Dobbs reminded viewers John Bolton was Romney's foreign policy adviser during his 2012 presidential run, and through Bolton, Romney is apparently connected to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman and his brother Col. Yevgeny Vindman. Dobbs then posted a web map showing the relationships between Bolton, Romney and other anti-Trump forces, Yevgeny Vindman for example, is an attorney for the National Security Council, is alleged by some to have leaked the chunk of Bolton's book that the New York Times reported. Bolton also shares a book agency with Comey and fellow former Trump official Cliff Sims; Bolton "has been reduced to a tool for the radical Dims," Dobbs said Monday.

Even Senator Kelly Loeffler (R-GA), who was sworn into the Senate earlier this month, hit Romney for his stance with regard to the impeachment trial of President Trump. In a viral tweet, Sen. Loeffler blasted Romney for wanting to “appease the left” over his support of impeachment witnesses, when, according to the senator, there is “no case for impeachment.” “After [two] weeks, it’s clear that Democrats have no case for impeachment,” Loeffler posted.

As Tucker Carlson reminded us in a recent monologue, think back to 2016 and the campaign then. Donald Trump used to recite a poem about a woman who took a dying snake into her house and nursed it back to health. The snake did become healthy and then immediately whipped around and bit the woman.

As she breathed her last breath, the woman asked the snake, "Why did you do this?" "Well, because I'm a snake," was the reply. "That's what we do."

Lou Dobbs is right, Mitt Romney is a snake, and we should all thank the Club for Growth for reminding Utah voters of that fact.
