  1. so good <3

  2. Democrats should offer Romney some appropriate federal government position when they utterly evaporate the GOP filth in Nov. (like, not healthcare tho…)

    What a beast.

    • I believe the board position at Burisma in the Ukraine is vacant now his Chief of staff Mr Black has resigned….Mitt would be working closely with H#nter B#den again…

    • @Master Temple Nah dude he is faking Mars landings and making coronavirus

  3. What we witnessed today with Romney was truly unfathomable. Today we observed a species that was once thought to be long extinct….a republican with a spine. 👏👏👏👏😃

    • In 2012 he was Hitler who gave people cancer and killed dogs and Grannies

      Why the guy attacked Obama unfairly and said during the debates that Obama never declared the Begazzi thing a terrorist attack until two weeks later. That was false and Romney tried to lie and got called out and embarresed by Obama on stage and all he could do is stutter and he never even appologized for it.

  4. “The subtle and deadly change of heart that might occur in you, would be involved with the realization that a civilization is not destroyed by wicked people; it is not necessary that people be wicked, but only that they be spineless.”

    “In a word, I was too cowardly to do what I knew to be right, as I had been too cowardly to avoid doing what I knew to be wrong.” 
    ― Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

    This pretty much sums up the loathsome state of the Republican party today

    We are currently facing a Constitution crisis, and our democracy as we know it is on the line.
    The true character of a person will always be revealed when they are faced with a crisis or adversity. And the eternal question will always be, when it truly mattered, did he do the right thing?  So far, republicans have failed..

    “THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
    ― Thomas Paine, The Crisis

    I salute true patriots like Schiff, Doug Jones, Romney, and their colleagues, who had the courage to do the right thing, when it truly mattered. Thank you for standing up for the American people, the country, and our Constitution.

    • We have been having a constitutional crisis, since Trump took his oath of office with NO intention of ever honoring it. Today we are in an ongoing constitutional catastrophe with NO possible good outcomes for nearly a year.

      I wonder with whom Trump will be on the phone tomorrow, taking his next step in constitutional destruction.

    • Gag…urp.

    • David J VERY WELL SAID & the truth about COWARDS!

      In the rest of the world (including the shithole countries) as of 2016 we have been watching, reading listening and discussing in utmost disbelieve and disgust your president’s policies, his ignorance and untruthfullness, – behavior, his tweets, his remarks about other people /countries, his blatant lies and overall lack of integrity. The past few weeks yet again, we have been watching and listening in utmost disbelieve and disgust, now to your countries impeachment saga. Be sure to know there is a w.w. feeling of nausea about its results, although, it might be time for us (including the shithole countries) to acknowledge that indeed: EVERY NATION HAS THE LEADER IT DESERVES; SO, THIS IS AMERICA!!

  5. Senator Jones you also have a spine. We will all answer to God some day. And history will be the judge. Everyone should be donating to your campaign to get you re-elected.

  7. His religious following made his follow the right way to vote knowing the Constitution was a law not to be scrambled and twisted by a leader who only serves for himself and not for the American people

  8. Fifty two Senators left their broken oaths lying shattered on the Senate floor.

    • @Herr Frankenstein The oath of office would mean something to a democrat president.

    • —- > Republicans voted to cheat in the next election. I’m glad Romney voted guilty on Article 1 but, truthfully, he should have voted guilty on Article 2 as well. He’s okay with acknowledging Trump committed a crime but he’s also okay with making sure another president can’t be found out. And, he’s saying he’s got a God decision on that. So, I question his motives.

      I suspect he’s seeking converts. Mormonism is just another autocratic ideology that has been debunked.
      … In his bid for the Presidency, he said 47% of Americans are worthless. That is part of who he is as well.

    • @jannmutube What he said was that he does not care about 47% of the people living in America which is deplorable, but just about what most republicons feel about the people who live in htis country!!

      @Karen Schumer Thanks… Certainly the Oath of Office has clear meaning for most Americans… My point is different… My point is that the oath of office is no longer an enforceable code of conduct…

  9. When one exhibits Courage, they choke Fear…

  10. The whole show was simply partisan politics. Nothing more, nothing less. Imho

  11. Dumbo jr. He told the truth put his head on a pike expell him. Huff lungbarf I’ll smoke to that

    Senator Rumney is honorable men~👍👍👍 👏👏👏

  13. Senator Jones, here here!

  14. Doug Jones, you are not only on ‘the right side of history’, but you have a place in American politics!

  15. Senator Romney showed true leadership in his speech. If you have a chance to listen to it, you will see why he should be leading the GOP Senators and not corrupt Moscow Mitch.

    I always felt Romney would have made a better Senator than President, and his speech showed it.

    Keep at it, Senator Romney!!!

  16. Mr Romney, put other Republicans in the shade, he has my respect.

      Why the guy attacked Obama unfairly and said during the debates that Obama never declared the Begazzi thing a terrorist attack until two weeks later. That was false.He was also heard and taped talking against Mexican. This is partly why he lost.It’s interesting how you dispmiss all this stuff about the man simply because sided with your wishes to go against the president.

  17. On the right side of history- thank you Senator Jones!

  18. Mr. Romney, you have integrity. This wasn’t an acquittal, there was no trial. November won’t come soon enough!

  19. God bless you Sen. Jones, you’re my daughter’s Senator, I’m sure she’s proud of you.

  20. Senator Jones, God and we the people are on your side, you will be reelected.
