RINOs around the country let out a collective sigh of relief when Fox News axed their most popular host.
And they joined with Democrats in applauding the Fox News move to silence Tucker Carlson.
Maybe the happiest of all was lead Senate RINO and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Mitt Romney is one of the biggest cheerleaders for Joe Biden’s plans to entangle the U.S. in a bloody war against Russia.
In fact, so far Romney’s only complaint about Joe Biden’s actions is that we haven’t given even more taxpayer dollars to the corrupt Ukrainian government.
But while RINO Romney joins with the radical Left in supporting even more involvement in the European conflict, Americans are increasingly opposed.
For example, new polls show a growing resistance among rank-and-file Republicans to continuing to write blank checks for Joe Biden’s war efforts.
And Americans are less and less inclined to support efforts to secure the Ukrainian border even as our southern border falls apart.
An Axios/Ipsos poll taken in March found just 42 percent of Americans now support Joe Biden’s scheme to escalate the war through weapons shipments.
Many establishment Republicans blamed Tucker Carlson for the rising GOP opposition to unlimited taxpayer funding for the war in Ukraine.
In an interview with The Hill, Utah’s establishment Senator Romney falsely claimed the war against Russia over Ukraine was “one of the greatest demonstrations of good versus evil we’ve seen in our lifetimes.”
Romney then claimed Carlson has brainwashed conservative GOP voters with a hypnotic spell into opposing a war even Joe Biden admits could escalate to a nuclear Armageddon.
“There have been some that have argued that he was setting foreign policy for the Republican Party, which I find to be bizarre. Certainly not for me,” Romney said.
“To the Primary [Republican] voter, the active participant, the grassroot voter, he’s a person they listen to and has a big influence,” Romney went on.
Romney questioned Carlson’s role in the GOP saying, “it depends on the issue but I think with regards to Russia and Ukraine he was misguided.”
“It’s really disheartening and disappointing that an intelligent person would take a stance defending people who break into the symbol of democracy here and around the world,” Romney added.
But many other Congressional Republicans were far less eager to add their names to Romney’s quotes trashing America’s most popular TV personality.
That’s because unlike Mitt Romney, they want to pretend they are still Republicans, and they want to try and hold onto their shrinking base of support.
“It’s a bad day for Vladimir Putin,” a Senate Republican aide declared. “This takes one of the biggest critics of Ukraine war in Republican and conservative circles off the table.”
“He wasn’t troubled by whether something was true or not. He was mean, irresponsible, and dangerous,” an anonymous Republican Senator said in a statement to The Hill.
At least Mitt Romney had the courage to attack his base publicly, unlike these cowardly Republicans.
