Dear Senator Mitt Romney
Updated: Jan 31
Since your election, you have gone out of your way to take personal and political swings at the President of the United States.
During your 2012 presidential campaign, you sent a fundraising letter to U.S. voters, stating three things you would do if elected president. In the letter, you said, “We need a president who understands the economy; we need a president who knows how jobs are created; and we need a president who will focus on fixing the economy from day one. I am running for President of the United States to turn our economy around.”
There seems to be no difference between promises you were making then and the current goals and achievements of President Trump. It is evident that you have a personal vendetta with President Trump and not a policy disagreement. You have adopted a stance of rooting for President Trump to fail, but you were not elected by the people of Utah to become the replacement for former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona.
Your recent supposed clandestine attacks and comments as “Pierre Delecto” on Twitter toward the President were petty, shameful, and beneath the office to which you have been entrusted as a U.S. senator representing the people of Utah. Perhaps you would be well-advised to do the honorable thing and meet with the President to work out whatever personal feelings you have toward him, leaving your discussion behind closed doors. Attacking the President does not elevate you in any way but has quite the opposite effect. You’re doing a great disservice to the voters of Utah. Our country deserves better.
Perhaps you might consider that you are being used by the propaganda leftist machine. You have abandoned Utah conservative values and seem to align closer to Massachusetts values. You are very consistent with your attacks on the President and seem to forget that you were elected to serve the people of Utah and not your own personal political ambitions.
We, as Utah voters, recognize that our state legislature might not have the will to amend Utah Code to make elected officials accountable to those they serve, but we will begin a grass-roots process to place an initiative on the ballot to recall elected officials who abandon and do not represent the wishes of Utah voters.
