TUCKER CARLSON: Mitt Romney supports the status quo. But for everyone else, it’s infuriating.

via foxnews:  “Romney’s piece is fascinating on its own terms. It’s well-worth reading. It’s a window into how the people in charge, in both parties, see our country. . . . We are ruled by mercenaries who feel no long-term obligation to the people they rule. They’re day traders. Substitute teachers. They’re just passing through. They have no skin in this game, and it shows. They can’t solve our problems. They don’t even bother to understand our problems.”

UPDATE: From Harvard Lawprof Adrian Vermeule, ouch:

But wait, there’s more:

ANOTHER UPDATE: Thoughts at Ace’s: “So failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney took to the op-ed pages of the WaPo to lambaste President Trump’s character, by which he means banging porn starlets and publishing mean tweets. Presumably, Romney doesn’t do these awful things, which makes him, in his mind, morally superior to Donald Trump. But there’s more to ‘character’ than this. For example, there’s courage. There’s commitment. There’s leadership. There’s not backing down, caving in to criticism, and sticking to a course of action when things get tough. To my knowledge, none of these characteristics have ever been attributed to Mitt Romney.”
