Okay, okay, Mitt Romney never committed treason or physically hurt anyone, but the fact remains that he was supposed to carry the Republican Party to a resounding victory in 2012.

President Obama and his administration were burdened by scandals and shouldn't have had the political weight to win reelection.

Unfortunately, many voters thought that Romney couldn't related to them on kitchen table issues. Worse, he ceded the political narrative to the more adept Obama before the general election even began.

This was not Romney’s only shortcoming. The Utah Republican found an ally in Donald Trump in 2012, but he did not extend him the same courtesy when Trump's election seemed in doubt. He went so far as to implore Republicans to actively distance themselves from Trump in order to salvage their party. Romney’s questionable decisions (to put it charitably) didn’t stop there, the other day he became the first U.S. senator in history to vote to remove a president belonging to the same party.
