When Mitt took that long pause, he must be thinking that he just kiss his remaining political career good bye. But history will remember him as the lone boy that stood up to the school bully.

“To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public.”

Gotta give Romney credit. He is not someone I agree with on a lot of things, but he is an honorable man.

Never been a fan of Mitt Romney.
I'm also a staunch atheist.
His speech was incredibly touching and sincere.
I could feel those words and he meant every one of them.
That's what morals and integrity can do when they're upheld.
I am amazed and have gain alot of respect for Mitt today.
Thank you sir.
I'm sorry your fellow Republicans, and the president himself, will drag you through the mud for this.
You dont deserve it.

I'm not even religious, but I found that speech by Romney and Colbert's follow up quite moving.

By refusing to allow witnesses to speak and evidence to be produced, does this not mean that the republicans are guilty of aiding and abetting a criminal?

While I disagree with Mitt Romney on many things, that moment when he went silent out of the overwhelming emotion he felt speaking of his oath to God was indeed a drink of water in the desert. His nobility showed through at that moment. His manhood showed through at that moment. His love of country shone at that moment. I cannot thank Stephen enough for the quote from A Man for All Seasons. I would hold the image of holding yourself in your own hands like water when taking an oath. How wonderful, what great teaching.

Wow, Romney's speech was intense. And so was Colbert's. It heals the soul to hear good men speak the truth in this time of turmoil. Now please everyone, vote for a decent candidate next election. We need it !

Romney's vote is the perfect example of what values and ethics mean. These two concepts are real only when there is risk to the person who is adhering to them. Without that risk they are nothing more than empty phrases. Most times these two concepts are considered noble but they are really quite scary because to actually adhere to them, you may have to risk quite a bit.

The Senate did not acquit Trump: the Republican party did. Democracy did not die in darkness... It died in the light of day.

That was surprisingly deep and heartfelt from Stephen. And while I’ve never been a Romney fan, I must admire that he stood tall while others slithered off into the shadows.

*NEVER thought I would say this, but "Thank You Mitt Romney".*
*I'm a questioner when it comes to religion and my biggest pet peeve about those who profess to fear and believe in a God, But when it comes to proving that faith, and walk the right path, they IMMEDIATELY abandon any guidance that their own religion expects of them.*

*But IMO, Mitt Romney, even though I disagree on NUMEROUS issues that surround him, ("Corporations are people my friend"), HAS proven his character when it came to his beliefs, and for that I respect you sir.*

The ironic thing about GOP senators being afraid of Trump is that they created him.

I do sincerely respect Mitt Romney and John McCain for their oaths to God.

Mitt Romney, the person that has all the courage that the GOP senators gave up.

“Why can’t he be president? Thanks Obama”
That was one of the best most thought out jokes I have heard him say
