“Inappropriate” Behavior vs Evil

Posted on February 11, 2020 by Robert Ringer


Let us not forget that Mitt Romney is not alone in his sanctimonious crusade against President Trump.  A number of other Republicans — including Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, Joni Ernst, Lamar Alexander, and Ben Sasse — have made CYA comments indicating that Trump did something “inappropriate” on his call with Ukrainian president Zelensky.  To straddle the political fence, however, they also said that his offense did not rise to the level of impeachment.  More CYA.

These are people who, though they did vote to acquit Trump, would switch sides in a heartbeat if they thought it was politically safe to do so.  Their faux-pious word of choice is “inappropriate.”  No crime, mind you — just “inappropriate” behavior.  It’s a safe word, because whether or not something is inappropriate is in the eyes of the beholder — meaning that it’s totally subjective.

That said, Trump’s supposed inappropriate behavior is minor compared to the inappropriateness of Nancy Pelosi moving ahead with the impeachment of a president even though Democrats didn’t bother to charge him with a crime, let alone an impeachable crime.  Then there’s the inappropriateness of her refusing to give the articles of impeachment to the Senate for a month, and, finally, the inappropriateness (and childishness) of her declaring that the president is “impeached forever.”

And wasn’t it just a bit inappropriate for petulant Nancy to tear up the president’s SOTU speech in full view of millions of people?  Democrats, of course, thought it was a wonderful antic.  In fact, the uber odious Eric Swalwell insisted that Nancy showed “great restraint.”

Oh, yes, and how about Nancy saying that Trump’s attorneys should be disbarred?  Not Adam Schiff or Jerry Nadler, mind you.  No, it’s shady characters like Alan Dershowitz, Jay Sekulow, Pat Cipollone, and Patrick Philbin who must be stripped of their law licenses.  Not an inappropriate statement at all, right?

Actually, now that I think of it, I find pretty much everything about Nancy Pelosi to be inappropriate — including her annoying habit of forgetting to apply Poligrip to her ill-fitting dentures before making public appearances.  In fact, it’s grossly inappropriate.

Then there’s our scandal-free ex-prez, Barack Obama.  Wasn’t it inappropriate for him to declare that he wanted to fundamentally transform the United States of America, a country whose way of life he was elected to protect?

And how about when he said, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”  This is the man whom Democrats to this day insist brought people together?  But, hey, it’s all in eyes of the beholder, right?

Perhaps Obama’s most inappropriate comment of all was when he said, “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends.”  How sweet.  I’ve often wondered who the enemies were to whom he was referring.  I guess Democrats know, because they loved it.

Speaking of presidents who did inappropriate things, wasn’t it inappropriate of FDR to try to pack the Supreme Court?  Or for Harry Truman to drop atomic bombs on heavily populated Japanese cities?  Or for JFK to refuse to openly support civil rights?

I won’t even bother to go into presidential scoundrels like Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, et al.  My point is that every president does lots of things that some people might arbitrarily believe are “inappropriate,” but no one ever suggests they should be put in jail.

Nevertheless, that’s exactly what the Dirty Dems and Pierre Delecto tried to do to Donald Trump.  They never stated an actual crime he had committed — just that it was inappropriate for him to try to find out why the former vice president’s son made millions of dollars, without having to do any work, in a country from which his father threatened to withhold foreign aid if a certain prosecutor was not fired.

Finally, we get to the king of inappropriate behavior, Mitt Romney, affectionately referred to by his closest friends as “St. Mitt.”  I honestly don’t recall ever hearing anything as inappropriate as St. Mitt calling a man running for president of the United States — whose endorsement he had sought and secured just four years earlier — a phony and a fraud, and, for good measure, adding that “dishonesty is (his) trademark.”  St. Mitt’s remarks made him sound more like an angry grade-schooler than a United States Senator or corporate plunderer.

Those who thought St. Mitt’s words and actions couldn’t get any more inappropriate were wrong, because shortly after Trump’s election he groveled before the president in an attempt to land the job of Secretary of State.  He even went so far as to say that “President-elect Trump is the very man who can lead us” to a better future.

Segue to 2020 and St. Mitt had yet another change of heart.  Citing his religious convictions and his oath to be an “impartial juror,” and saying that “God demanded it of me,” he voted to convict Trump on the abuse of power charge the Dirty Dems had lodged against him.  A cynic might suspect that the reason he voted not guilty on the second charge, obstruction of Congress, was to convince people that he was a champion of “impartial justice.”

The truth is that St. Mitt wouldn’t know “impartial justice” if it hit him in his ignoble snout.  The man is totally devoid of principle and is immoral to the core.  Trust me, his never-ending self-aggrandizement antics comprise nothing more than an attempt to convince people of his moral superiority.

Having said all this, I am obliged to point out that all human beings do things, at one time or another, that some people might arbitrarily believe to be inappropriate.  Which is okay, because halfway intelligent/sane people do not demonize others for their (subjectively perceived) human failings.

However, what St. Mitt and his Democratic allies have done to Donald Trump over the past four years — and, by extension, to the tens of millions of people who support him — is way beyond just inappropriate.  It’s flagrant dishonesty and malevolence to a degree that some people might be inclined to refer to as pure evil.

Yes, Mitt, some people (not me!) might agree with you that Donald Trump’s actions were inappropriate, but you win the trophy for pure evilness hands down.

    How is this for "inappropriate"? St. Mitt, who was canonized as the patron saint of RINOs (Dirty Dem wannabes), has a real name, "Willard Mitt Romney". How's that for inappropriateness? Ashamed to say so, I voted for this rat in 2012 to kick Hussein Nobama out. And he and his campaign did a p*** poor job in doing that just as I now would have expected. Now St. Mitt, I mean Willard, is the super rock star of the Radic-Libs who was once reviled and loathed, now gets standing ovations and high praise as being their soul brother and champion, one of them, since he voted for convicting a man who did absolutely nothing wrong! Nothing! And one of them he is. Even RINOs, Murkowski and Collins, voted to acquit, but Willard wouldn't. His day in the GOP is over! Not only is Willard a dirty rat, but is one of the Dirty Dems and in the wrong party.

    DJT has that quality that I admire so much…courage. How rare it is in politics (or anywhere) today.

    • spellinator says:

      BUT… but… but, he lies about everything (they say).
      How can you support such a man?

      (Not my feeling, but the earful I get every day from my wife who watches CNN all day long. Ugh.)

    Amen! Bullseye, Robert. Romney's vote to remove Trump proved that Mitt lacks moral principle. Despite his invoking of the Almighty, his outrageous Senate floor behavior was not endorsed by God. Any person with a desire to understand our Constitution and the intent of the Founders could see that President Trump was set up by adversarial factions and framed for a non-impeachable crime–for doing his job! It's what the Founders feared and sought to prevent. The flawed and failed coup attempt and impeachment were unconstitutional efforts to interfere in the 2020 election. Chameleon Romney staged his "Mitt fit" primarily to position himself better for his next gig–as an "unbiased" CNN commentator. Does Romney really think most people are too stupid to see through this? Thank God such a shallow person never became our President. Shame on you, Mitt Romney. Your evil actions have not gone unnoticed.

    For almost all of today's politicians, they're only interested in power…gaining power, retaining power. And money/donations is power. I wish we could get rid of most of them and replace them all with more people like our president…who put the people first.

    • JurassicRick says:

      Thank you, larajf, for your comment on my post. For starters, we need to get rid of swamp rats like Willard Mitt Romney who, in my opinion, serves no worthwhile purpose and is a Dirty Dem wannabe. Swamp rats like him are the reason the country is so out of whack.
      Also, why is it that Hillary is not in federal prison for all the high crimes she has committed and gets a free pass? And the same for Hussein Nobama. Sarah Palin, whom I admire greatly, has said that Nobama committed over 22 impeachable offenses, in addition to not being born in the United States, yet he gets a free pass! Yet our President just sneezes and they want to have him removed and convicted!

    After everything I've seen from the Democrats, starting with the ridiculous Russia Collusion Hoax, then the Brett Kavanaugh saga, and then the very dumb, very stupid impeachment process, I have come to the conclusion that the Democratic Part is simply EVIL. There is just no other word. They obviously don't care how they get rid of Donald Trump. They are simply Pure Evil. I am from Canada, and I have to say, I've NEVER EVER seen anything like what the Democrats have done in the past 3 years or so. Crazy, ridiculous, and Pure Evil as I have said.

    I hope to God, that the people who vote for the Democrats are honest enough with themselves to see how evil their party really is. Regardless, in the coming election Trump will win in a LANDSLIDE!

    After a narcissistic person enters politics, he then becomes a narcissistic politician. They now feel that they deserve to game the system and rise above the law. Guilt isn’t an emotion they are prone to. After all, their fat narcissistic egos believe they are entitled. As absolute moralists, what they believe what is immoral for others is yet somehow acceptable for themselves. Their hypocrisy lies, and manipulation just doesn’t apply to their fragile psyches. Narcissistic Pelosi Mitt and hundreds of others, senators and congressmen will not be admired or looked up to by the wise voter, unfortunately, we need more wise voters to continue with swamp draining.

    Politics is a power, ugly and sometimes dirty game. After all that happened to Donald Trump, I still love him and always support him.

    • spellinator says:

      He is a very flawed man, BUT I'd rather have him than any Demoncrat (or a RINO for that matter). We also need more people in congress like Jim Jordan, Dan Crenshaw, Rand Paul, Kevin McCarthy, and Steve Scalise, who took an actual bullet and survived. My representative, Van Taylor, is veteran of the Iraqi war.

  8. kevinbeck2015 says:

    I wonder if the elections for Senate result in a 50-50 tie between the two major parties, would St. Mitt cross over and vote for Schumer as majority leader?

    My guess: If Trump is re-elected, he will do exactly that.

    • spellinator says:

      Lets hope it doesn't come to that. I hope the Dems lose big time like they did in 1982.Their day is coming soon, I hope.

      • kevinbeck2015 says:

        I would prefer it never comes to that, either. But I always hope for the best while preparing for the worst.
