Mitt Romney is a True Conservative, His Moderate Reputation is Not Deserved

  Mitt Romney should be going bald from all of the head scratching that must be taking place. Four years ago he was the conservative’s choice. Pundits likeRush Limbaugh lauded him as the most conservative in the field, and he was decried as the person who was too conservative to win. Senator John McCain, (R-Ariz) who became the eventual nominee, was declared to be the only one who could win. (Remember how well that worked out?)
Now Romney is a RINO (Republican In Name Only), Liberal, and the epitome of the Washington establishment (Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul had more than 20 years in Washington, Santorum had 16, while Romney spent none in Washington, but who’s counting?). Mitt Romney has spent no time in elected office in D.C., especially when compared to his competitors, and just because some in the D.C. establishment are backing him, does not make him one of them any more than a former Speaker, or Senate leader.
True, Romney was a more liberal guy when he was younger, and yes he has grown more conservative as he has gotten older. If libertarian and Tea Party conservatives are going to hang someone for that, are they then precluding the possibility that anyone can grow, change their mind, learn, and discover new things? Maybe it appears too convenient, but others have followed a similar path, including Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
