Mitt Romney rode in on a plane, but it didn’t work for him; he should have planned ahead and used a white horse instead.

Hmmm... It's not entirely without merit.

I wouldn't be surprised if the story morphs in 50 years in Mormon lore. I predict this:

Mormons will be giving talks at church about how Mormonism saved the world during this horrible time. They already make everything about Mormonism. They will describe it as a situation where Romney DID step up to be the hero to save the Constitution. They will explain the prophesy was fulfilled (the horse was a metaphor of course). Of course they won't mention Mike Lee or the crazy Mormon terrorist.

They will mold the story into a faith promoting Mormon legend like they do everything else.

Just found out Biggs of AZ is a Mormon. He's one of those accused of showing the rioters around the Capitol the day before the riots. Another reason to resign--if I already hadn't done it and have at least 1,000 other reasons.

How Mitt Romney showed what real leadership looks like

https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2021/01/07/politics/mitt-romney-capitol-insurrection-trump/index.html


Romney has, without doubt, taken the road less traveled among his Republican colleagues over these last few years. He was an outspoken opponent of nominating Trump. He has repeatedly -- and publicly -- expressed his misgivings with what this President says and how he acts in office.

And he paid the price. He was attacked by the President. He was belittled by former colleagues. And recently, he was mocked on his way from Salt Lake City to Washington for his stands on principle -- and against Trump.

It would have been a hell of a lot easier for Romney to just stay silent as Trump engaged in his divisive and dangerous rhetoric. ...


https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2021/01/trump-romney-electoral-college/617566/

Mitt Romney’s flight to Washington, D.C., hadn’t even taken off when the chants from the back of the plane began: “TRAI-TOR! TRAI-TOR! TRAI-TOR!”

The Republican senator from Utah is used to angering Donald Trump’s most die-hard fans. But Romney’s latest sin against MAGA orthodoxy—the one that had so riled his fellow passengers—is especially egregious: He’s refused to go along with a plot to overturn the 2020 presidential election.

Romney said, “you can either be a fire extinguisher or a flamethrower. And President Trump has been a flamethrower.”

“The president was right that there was an effort to corrupt the election, but it was not by Joe Biden. It was by President Trump.”

Jeff Flake, an outspoken Republican critic of the president who retired from the Senate in 2019, told me that too few of his former colleagues have been willing to level with their base during the Trump years. “Sometimes it’s your job to tell your constituents they’re all wet,” he said. “There’s been very little willingness to do that.”

Romney tells Republican colleagues 'this is what you've gotten' as Senate shelters in breached Capitol

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) put the blame for the chaos unfolding in the Capitol on Wednesday firmly on the shoulders of his Republican colleagues: "This is what you've gotten, guys," Romney was heard yelling as "mayhem unfolded in the Senate chamber, apparently addressing his colleagues who were leading the charge to press Mr. Trump's false claims of a stolen election," The New York Times reports.

Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.

Seriously on Planet Utah, Romney is a godsend. Look at how they gerrymandered Ben McAdams out of his congressional seat.

Edit: From the HuffPost:

https://www.aol.com/news/mitt-romney-trump-impeachment-trial-160138162.html

>>Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) on Sunday called the upcoming impeachment trial of former President Donald Trump important for “unity” and “accountability,” breaking with some Republicans who argue the trial would further divide the country.

>>“It is pretty clear that over the last year there has been an effort to corrupt the election in the United States and it was not by President Biden; it was by President Trump,” Romney added.

>>He wouldn’t say whether he will vote to convict Trump. He was the only Republican to do so during Trump’s first impeachment trial in 2020.

So the Constitution was hanging by a thread and Willard bravely...Yelled out a description of the thread as he rode OUT on his white horse.

You gotta be precise when interpreting prophesy.

Say what you will about Mittens the Flip Flopper, at least he had the guts to pander to Trump, by telling us all Trump is a good man who will make a fine President, 4 yrs ago, before turning on him after getting turned down for a cabinet position.

The Constitution was hanging, and God sent a Roman Catholic instead of a Mormon.

I guess it doesn't matter, as long as someone from one of the two "one true" churches shows up!

Perhaps we didn't fall through just now, but seems the ice remains mighty thin.
Seems the thought that everyone wishes to choose their reasoned benevolent leader - and not a self-selected autocrat imposing iron rule - is a risky assumption.

The Dark Ages has it's appeal.

So perhaps there is yet time for the white horse rider-person-dude-gal
