OF COURSE HE DOES: Mitt Romney SUPPORTS Changing Confederate Names of Military Basis

(PatrioticPost.com)- Mitt Romney, the former Republican presidential candidate and the current Senator for Utah, said on Thursday that he thinks it’s a good idea to change the names of some U.S. military bases that were named after Confederate figures. The announcement prompted a collective sigh from Republican commentators online who weren’t exactly surprised that Romney would side with the Democrats…again.

When asked about the calls by Democrats to rename military bases named after Confederate figures, Romney told journalists in Capitol Hill that he would support the measures.

Romney said he thought it was a good idea in “some cases” and that he wouldn’t support President Donald Trump’s clear line that no bases should be renamed.

When he was asked which cases he thinks it is right, Romney said, “I’ll look at them one by one.”

It does kind of beg the question of how exactly Romney will determine which ones should be renamed and which shouldn’t. Democrats might argue that the presence of any Confederate name is offensive, so Romney will need to prepare a response to that too.

President Donald Trump has been clear that he will not bend the knee to far-left protesters and rioters who prompted this consideration by congressional leaders to change the names of U.S. military bases.

“It has been suggested that we should rename as many as 10 of our Legendary Military Bases, such as Fort Bragg in North Carolina, Fort Hood in Texas, Fort Benning in Georgia, etc,” Trump said.

“These Monumental and very Powerful Bases have become part of a Great American heritage.”

“Our history as the Greatest Nation in the World will not be tampered with,” Trump added

Romney is clearly siding with the Democrats on this issue. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, one of the loudest anti-Trump voices in the Democratic Party, said on Wednesday that several Confederate statues should even be removed from Capitol Hill.

No word on whether Romney supports that one, too.
