I am no Romney supporter and I am very disapointed to see Santorum leave. That said, I have seen a lot of popular conservatives back Romney: Coulter, Nikki Haley, Jindal, Christie, Rubio, Cantor, Issa, Paul Ryan, Mike Savage and others. Each time FReepers attack the endorser. Do the endorsers know something we FReepers don’t? Will Romney move to the Right after the election? Is it possible that Romney can be a stealth Conservative, secretly getting the independent vote? It’s all I got at this point.
According to Rush Limbaugh, Romney is able to convince people by talking to them. I can’t recall the number of times I’ve heard people say ‘sit down with Romney one on one and he’ll convince you.’ I also can’t forget hearing about his wife saying he can argue either side of an issue and she can’t tell which one he supports.
There is a difference between “popular” conservative and principled conservative. I know that you are hoping beyond hope that all the liberal things he did in Massachusetts were just an attempt to fool people. That his support for the gay agenda and $50.00 for an aborted baby were just his way of kidding people. Remember that if Mitt’s mouth is open, he’s trying to fool someone. But you can look at his history and his upbringing and you’ll see there is nothing in his background that would make him conservative.
