Once a leading member of the GOP, Mitt Romney says that Joe Biden was elected president in 2020 to “stop the crazy” and return a sense of normalcy to the country and not creative “transformative” social change. 

Romney made the comments during a recent interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The Utah Republican — who was also the party’s presidential nominee in 2012 — told host Chuck Todd that Biden needed to adhere to his commitment to bridge partisan divisions in the country. Romney’s comments came in the wake of Biden’s fiery voting-rights speech in Atlanta last week.

“President Biden said he was going to try to unite the country,” the senator said. “His comments in Georgia did not suggest he’s trying to pull us back together again.”

He continued, “He’s got to recognize that when he was elected, people were not looking for him to transform America. They were looking to get back to normal. To stop the crazy. And it seems like we’re continuing to see the kinds of policy and promotions that are not accepted by the American people.”

Romney’s comments mirrored the sentiment of Democratic Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia, who said in November that voters elected Biden not to become the next Franklin D. Roosevelt in pushing for major changes in government but to move away from the tumult of the Trump administration.

Romney, who worked with Biden to pass the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill that was signed into law in November, said the president should push for a “reset” regarding his presidency, arguing that the Democrat had “a bad year.”

The senator pointed to concerns surrounding inflation, the rise in illegal crossings at the US-Mexico border last year, the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, and logistical issues with Americans accessing COVID-19 testing kits in his critique of the administration.

“Things are not going well,” Romney said. “And the president needs to stop and reset and say what is it he’s trying to accomplish.”

He continued: “And if it’s to try and transform America, he is not going to unite us. Bringing us together means finding a way to work on a bipartisan basis. He had one success, the infrastructure bill, and that was done by Republicans and Democrats in the Senate working together. Build on that kind of success.”

  3. Romney is irrelevant he needs to close his mouth the whole of the republicans know he’s a RHINO. Not even his own home state trust him.

  4. LISTEN UP….MITT ROMNEY the RINO Can Jump into a LAKE with CROCODILES. If AMERICA/AMERICANS are DOING BETTER with PREZ BIDEN than I HATE to SEE what WORSE is. It LOOKS like Pretty Much of a HELL to ME. From SamuraiQueen. 😄😄😄😇😇😇

  5. Romney proved two things with that statement the first is he is a FAR FAR bigger IDIOT than previously thought he was. The Second is that he is a full Democrap not a RINO but an outright Democrap. How can he say this IGNORANT thing when he knows full well that Pedo Joe is a SENILE PEDOPHILE.

  6. Romney should have paid better attention to all the promises Biden was making to all the Democrat fringe groups to get their votes says:

    Not sure what Republican Romney means by Democrat “Biden was elected to stop the crazy.”
    -Most voters do not agree on every issue their party’s candidate stands on.
    -Republican Trump was doing a lot of things right, at the end of his 1st term: economic boom, record stock market and 401K’s, building a wall and securing the border, energy independent, tax relief for the middle class, deregulation, fair trade, etc.
    -In fact, Biden was asked during a 2020 campaign stop why people should vote for him, what he would do to improve what Trump was doing and Biden had no answer.
    -So Republican Romney thought voting for Democrat Biden, who had been mostly MIA instead of campaigning prior to the 2020 election, would be an improvement over a successful Republican term?
    -Even though Trump endorsed Romney for President in 2012, and for Senator in Utah in 2018.
    -If Romney is a Republican, and the country was running successfully under a Republican, Romney deserved to support his party and vote Republican.
    -Romney should not be surprised that the country is in the state it is in, because Biden did everything the Democrats wanted him to do.
    -At his age, Romney should have paid better attention to all the promises Biden was making to all the Democrat fringe groups to get their votes, and Romney should have known better.
