Editor’s note: The following editorial is from The MetroWest Daily News of Framingham (Mass.), and was originally published on March 4.
True, Mitt Romney is an imperfect messenger for the denunciation of Donald Trump that he delivered Thursday. Romney cheerfully accepted a Trump endorsement in 2012. As the former standard-bearer of his party, he is a quintessential establishment figure, whose criticism may be taken as affirmation by some Trump supporters. And, yes, he is coming late to the argument.
