“Romney, who announced earlier in the day that he would not be seeking reelection in the Beehive State, told The Washington Post in an interview ahead of his announcement that ‘I don’t think [Pence] has … any delusions that he’s going to become the nominee.’
‘I think he’s running for other reasons. One, to repair his legacy. … What he’s saying is important to be said. … I’m glad he’s running and saying those things. I respect that,’ Romney added.”
Donald Trump’s doll hands have an iron grip on the Republican presidential nomination, according to the latest Quinnipiac poll he has 62 percent support, followed by Ron DeSantis at 12 percent and everybody else, including Mike Pence, is in single digits.
Trump is the King and the Republican nomination process is a coronation, as evidenced by the fact that all of the contenders, with the exception of Asa Hutchinson, Chris Christie and Will Hurd are acting like his publicity agents instead of adversaries.
Most of the GOP presidential candidates realize they don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of winning, they’re just hoping that Trump will appoint them to an important role in his court, perhaps as Royal Jester or Chief Fluffer.
Pence is somewhere in the middle, he isn’t a Trump fluffer, but the only time he condemns Trump is when he criticizes him for ordering him to overturn the election results on January 6, 2021.
When Pence was asked about Romney’s comments he replied:
“I’m running for president of the United States because I think this country’s in a lot of trouble, and I’m running to win.”
I concur with Romney, Pence knows the he isn’t going to win, Trump’s MAGA base would rather hang him than vote for him.
If Pence is running to repair his legacy, then it’s incumbent upon him to go full Chris Christie and rip apart Trump’s corrupt behavior while in office and his despicable behavior in trying to overturn the election.
