Isn’t it funny how the leftist media go running to Sen. Mitt Romney whenever they need a rational, independent Republican’s take on something President Trump has done, considering how they absolutely savaged the guy during the 2012 election, even breaking in to “correct” him on a true fact during a presidential debate?
Newsbusters reports that, on Friday, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace opined on how it would be Romney who would sway independents who were otherwise on the fence about impeachment. Where Romeny went, they would go, she argued.

Newsbusters provided a transcript of the exchange with Sam Stein:
I’ve spent my career studying public opinion, and the most credible messages are the ones echoed from both sides of the political spectrum. So if independent voters, swing voters, the kind of voters that have fled Donald Trump since his election, the ones that gave Democrats their big wins in the 2018 midterms, if they see Mitt Romney saying the same thing as Nancy Pelosi, they’re a whole lot more likely to believe it.
Maybe it’s just us, but we don’t consider Pelosi and Romney to be on opposite ends of the political spectrum; Pelosi is way over to the Left, and Romney? Well, he’s just kind of there.
Speaking of, The New York Times was sure to check in with Sen. Romney on this whole impeachment deal, because they too respect him now. And all we learned is that Romney is “deeply troubled.”
Ah yes, the lone principled voice of reason now… GFY NY Times. pic.twitter.com/L1uV0dflBD

Fun game – Search Romney/NY Times circa 2012.

Ah yes Romney. Literally Hitler 2012

But wait! Romney cut some kid's hair in 8th grade!! @jasondhorowitz

Remember when the NYT mocked Romney for suggesting Russia was a problem?
"The cold war wants its foreign policy back…"

I’m confused, are we in the “Romney is problematic” or “Romney is principled” part of the lib news cycle?
— Matt Burns (@MMBnnNC) September 27, 2019
Oh, we’re definitely in the “Romney is principled” cycle.
The media loves Republicans when they lose.

Flake, I mean Romney, is an irritating RINO.

You do realize someday Trump will be a former president attacking the sitting Republican President…
…and the Times will praise Trump for his courage.

He’s not wrong.
Romney – a man in search of a surrender

So because Romney is “deeply troubled,” swing voters are gonna swing all the way over to the impeachment-happy Democrats?
— daheater (@daheater3) September 28, 2019
Oh yeah?! In the same way that he swung those swing voters to support his candidacy in 2012?!
That woman is such an idiot.

Are we talking about the same Mitt Romney here?
The man has zero influence outside the state of Utah, which is where he had to retreat to in order to worm his way into the US Senate just to make himself feel relevant.
— Loren (@LorenTrainor) September 28, 2019
Who listens to Romney? Nobody in Texas, anyway. Is there any state other than Utah where he has ANY sway?

She’ll have you know she’s spent her career studying public opinion.
Mitt Romney has zero influence anywhere.

Mitt Romney will flip flop seven times before that.
Nicolle Wallace is dumber than a stump.

Seeing how Romney swung voters who planned to vote for him to stay home in 2012 , I’d say that Nicole is puffing the magic dragon again.
— BrianZ (@brianzman1) September 28, 2019
Yeah just like he swung those voters in the 2016 election after his speech on Trump ? Wallace is a clown

Romneys actions don't surprise me after that back stabbing speech he gave on TV attacking Trump. Romney has shown himself to be part of the liberal establishment operating under the Republican banner. RINO!

The only thing that will be swinging around Romney is the door when it hits him in the ass on the way out
