After Displaying His Collaboration Credentials, Mitt Romney Is Urged by Liberals to Run for President

Barely had Mitt Romney penned an anti-Trump op-ed for the Washington Post than one Amy Davidson Sorkin writes a piece in The New Yorker almost begging the Utah Senator to make a run for the White House:

Romney Vs. Trump: If Utah's Senator Is Serious, He Should Be Running for President
Are Mitt Romney and other Trump critics in the G.O.P. going to fight for American values or engage in quixotic battles to teach the President better manners? 
(Update: Thanks for the Instalink, Stephen…)

As Jon Gabriel writes, Don’t Be a Flake, Mitt:
Romney should keep a tally in his day planner: Every criticism of Trump merits at least 25 criticisms of the braying donkeys trying to push socialism on America. If he’s unwilling to take the fight to the left, there’s no reason for anyone on the right to support him.
Adds Ed Driscoll:

— the "Insufferable" Ann Romney — to Hitler, Stalin (thanks to Ed Driscoll)

Singing La Marseillaise, a Yellow Vest Protester Marches Up the Middle of the Champs-Elysées

Singing La Marseillaise, a yellow vest protester marches up the middle of the Champs-Elysées, next to Marianne. (Update: Merci pour le lien Instapundit.)

In the meantime, my post on How Fake News Has Misrepresented the Yellow Vest Revolt in France has been fully updated, markedly expanded, and, in the process, thoroughly rewritten, for an in-depth piece in the January 2019 issue of the New English Review entitled THE TRUTH ABOUT FRANCE'S YELLOW VESTS.
