Mainly because the Trump followers live in an alternative reality world they also lack the reading comprehension necessary to actually  understand where Romney is coming from.

 Notices he didn't attack many of the present policies, as a Republican there are lots of policies that I am sure he is in favor of.

But what he has attacked in his writing is CHARACTER, MORALITY, HONESTY.  INTEGRITY.

Those necessary qualification of any leader or President of any country.

Right now, take a look at his cabinet and the men that he has appointed. and then make your own judgement. The swamp that he promised to clean is alive and well in his own cabinet.
Hoping that now Romney presents the voice of the real Republican Party.   and not the party of Trump./

Wow! Romney strikes a resounding chord when he said that he'd speak out against ill-conceived rhetoric or actions (an implicit condemnation of the President and his spokespeople) that are "divisive, racist, sexist, and anti-immigrant": in other words, anti-American. Bravo to Romney! This is a rallying call that I hope will activate centrist-leaning Republicans and resonate with all Americans who have seen Trump progressively and ignominiously stripped of his humanity.

ROMNEY ARRIVES!!!!!

In many situations, people are often afraid of standing up to a tyrant for a variety of reasons. However, if someone else does it first, that makes it a little easier to muster up the courage. That's the significance of Romney. If he's the lone Republican in the Senate standing up to Trump, maybe it will spark a bit of courage in a couple of others. If that happens, it could eventually turn into a tidal wave. 

 

It's well known that most Republican Senators know Trump is an imbecile and dangerous to our country. They have to get over the fear of the Trump Base turning on them. That's where Romney could change the dynamics.

So glad to see that you remember the names of outstanding Republicans, men with integrity, honesty and love for their country.

in other word, just expect a lot more of what has come to define the Trump Presidency thus far, a LOT more CHAOS. Heaven help us. I so long for a real President again.

Trump's new problem is that, once Romney starts hammering him and is not consumed by the MAGA Mob, other Republicans will begin doing the same thing. Senate Republicans are not happy at all that they voted for the latest budget proposal because Trump said he would sign it, then Trump threw them under the bus. Expect Trump to start seeing delays in voting. problems with scheduling, last minute issues being raised. Anything where the Republicans can interfere with Trump while not taking a direct hit.

you nailed it CT. That's why so few Republicans have a pair and spine to stand up to him. They are so afraid of the verbal abuse they will take it they dare speak up. Sad!

Trump's low IQ base does not allow free speech or independent thinking. Just like Hitler, everyone must agree with their Supreme Leader on every issue or pay a severe political price.

Romney is maybe one of two or three Republicans with a spine and a pair, who are willing to take on Trump. The rest of the GOP is too weak and scared to dare say anything against him.
