Skip to comments.Mitt Romney touts conservative credentials in new ad [BARF!]
Posted on 12/26/2011 1:42:40 PM PST by Jim Robinson
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is a conservative. At least, that is the point the former Massachusetts governor is trying to make with a new TV ad airing in Iowa.
The new ad, titled Conservative Agenda, shows Romney speaking on the stump and meeting with voters, as he makes a series of commitments. I am going to do something to government. Im going to make it Simpler, and Smaller, and Smarter, Romney says. Getting rid of programs, turning programs back to states, and finally making government itself more efficient.
Romney pledges to repeal President Obamas health care overhaul and balance the federal budget.
The ad comes as Romney tries to counter the perception among some conservative Republican voters that he is too moderate. A NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted Dec. 7-11 found that only 29 percent of Republican primary voters nationally viewed Romney as conservative compared to 57 percent for former House speaker Newt Gingrich and 48 percent for Texas Representative Ron Paul. More than half of those polled 53 percent called Romney a moderate while 11 percent considered him liberal.

I agree with you on Romney and would never vote for him, but I’m also not too keen on Gingrich, but would and will vote for him over Mitts.
Tell ‘em, JimRob!!!!!!!
I thought someone rubbed the cat the wrong way.
Milt Romney the Magic, but ineligible, RINO:
"I'm not running as the Republican view
or a continuation of Republican values.
That's not what brings me to the race.
(Romney Video, accessed 9/19/07)
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party
over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged
to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support.
Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates
wouldnt make any sense at all.""
-- President Ronald Reagan
I don’t think that an article showing Romney lying his ass off in public is pro-Romney.
The truth about “conservative” Romney:
If I believed this, I would be much more likely to vote for Romney. Of course, if I was dumb enough to believe this from a leftist like Mitt, I just might be dumb enough to vote for Obama.
Then drop out.
Either that or practicing to be CINC. [BARF]
RomneyCare is a Romney Conservative Solution™ program that he still brags about today.
Romney (the draft dodger) has at least as much experience as Obama to qualify as CINC. /s
You mean, like, they're both fairies?
One has to wonder whose conservative credentials. They certainly couldn't be his unless one considers MA a conservative state, and 0bama care/romney care conservative legislation.
Seems kinda late for Romney to be claiming to be a conservative.
There’s apparently a chance Romney will win Iowa.
And he’s probably going to win New Hampshire. And Virginia because no one else is going to be on the ballot.
In which case, he’s almost certainly the nominee.
If so, I’m OK with it. We just have to keep pressure on him to be as conservative as he claims to be. If it’s that or 4 more of Obama, I’m for Romney.
NO ROMNEY, NO WAY!! NOT ON MY WATCH!! NOT ON FR!!
Rebellion is brewing!!
I wouldn't be bragging about that on FR!
