The former Trump Republican Vice President seems to have had a ‘Come to Jesus’ revelation ….
Is Mike Pence gonna become a Democrat?…Cause talking like this is just gonna piss Donald Trump off…..
While Pence continues to say nice things about his former boss?
Stuff said below is NOT going to endear him to Trump & Co…..
These comments before a crowd at the Ronald Reagen Library
Former Vice President Pence tonight on calls for him to reject electoral counts as presiding officer on January 6: “The truth is, there’s almost no idea more un-American that the notion that any one person could choose the American president.”
There’s more from Pence..…
: “The presidency belongs to the American people and the American people alone and I will always be proud that we did our part on that tragic day to reconvene the Congress and fulfilled our duty under the Constitution…”
Mr. Pence also compared Mr. Trump to former President Ronald Reagan.
“He too disrupted the status quo,” Mr. Pence said. “He challenged the establishment. He invigorated our movement and set a bold new course for America.”
But so far, Mr. Pence has only tiptoed around the issue of how to remain the loyal soldier while distancing himself from the events of Jan. 6….
Former Vice President Mike Pence on Thursday night made his most forceful attempt yet to separate himself from his former boss, Donald J. Trump, on the issue of certifying the 2020 election results.
Speaking at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif., Mr. Pence defended the constitutionally mandated role he played in certifying the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6, when a violent mob of Trump loyalists — some chanting “Hang Mike Pence” — stormed the Capitol while the president did nothing for hours to stop them.
Whether Mr. Pence will succeed in having it both ways — being viewed as an ally and a critic of Mr. Trump — remains to be seen. Polls show that a majority of Republican voters believe that Mr. Trump won the 2020 election and buy into his baseless claims about voter fraud.
Mr. Pence is also testing the patience of a man who still looms over the political landscape and the Republican Party. While Mr. Trump and Mr. Pence have spoken several times since leaving office, Mr. Trump has showed flashes of frustration with his former loyal No. 2….

Claire McCaskill was on Morning Joe today and called Pence’s strategy for a potential 2024 run going “half Trump”. I think she correctly predicted it will go nowhere.
Pence blowback from the Trump side of Republicans
Former Vice President Mike Pence is facing strong resistance from members of his party’s pro-Trump base over his role in certifying the Electoral College results in the 2020 election.
Pence has stepped up his public appearances recently and is set to appear at the Family Leadership Summit in Iowa next month alongside other high-profile Republicans. But his political future is complicated by his refusal in January to bow to pressure from then-President Trump to help deliver him a victory in the race against Joe Biden.
While garnering praise from Democrats and Republicans, that decision has led to howls from members of the party’s right flank — a swath of voters Pence will need should he launch a presidential campaign in three years…
Pence’s Top Aide to Cooperate with House Probe
“The former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence is cooperating with the House panel investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection,“ the AP reports.
“Marc Short was at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and accompanied Pence as he fled his post presiding over the Senate and hid from rioters who were calling for his hanging. Short is cooperating with the panel after receiving a subpoena.”

Meanwhile Nikki Haley–who is sometimes considered a post Trump Republican on here–had nothing but praise for the former guy at a speech in Iowa
