Mitt Romney's 'profile in courage'

Byron York, Washington Examiner

On the plus side, the vote would win Romney widespread praise across much of the media. How often can one become a profile in courage? That would certainly feel good, especially for a man who was excoriated by some of those same media voices when he ran against Barack Obama eight years ago. Now, Romney will take plenty of hits from the Trump side, and from the president himself. But there are clearly benefits as well. So, just as it was in the old days, the question is: Who is Romney trying to please? Although he is a man with some undeniably good qualities, those who have watched him over the years will wonder whether the vote was truly something new or the Romney they have known for a long time.
