Utah (ABC4 News) — Utah Sen. Mitt Romney took to Twitter Tuesday morning to discuss his “thoughts on the current state of our politics.”
Sen. Romney said in a posted statement he has “stayed quiet with the approach of the election.” But says he is troubled by the current politics, saying it has moved away from spirited debate to a “vile vituperative, hate-filled morass that is unbecoming of any free nation.”
Within the post, Sen. Romney calls out both Republicans and Democrats. He specifically addresses the president, Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, and political commentator, Keith Olbermann.

Sen. Romney says the world is watching America in horror. “More consequentially, our children are watching,” as stated in the post.
“Many Americans are frightened for our country — so divided, so angry, so mean, so violent.” Sen. Romney says it’s time to lower the heat and calls for leaders to “tone it down.”
