Romney’s Impotence

My favorite Christmas Eve quotation (so far) comes from a FiveThirtyEight piece arguing 2019 was the year Donald Trump consolidated his hold on the GOP. It notes the impotence of Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT).
Romney seems to want to lead an insurgency among Republicans on Capitol Hill, but he can’t lead anything if he doesn’t have any followers.
Mitt Romney is the Republican version of Pete Buttigieg, or maybe Pete is a Romney clone. They’re shiny whiz-kid management consultants - swamp-serving technocrats.
