This is for those of you actually listening to Mitt Romney these days and NOT to the Media drubbing his campaign…..
Thank you Chris Cillizza for this piece…..
This Dog never bit at the Romney in a Conservative line….
Cillizza argues for Mitt to come hime to who he REALLY is…..
Mitt the Moderate……(the ex-Governor of Blue Massachusetts)
This Dog thinks it’s too late….
He SHOULD HAVE gone back to the Middle a LONG time ago….
In a speech Wednesday night at the University of Miami, Moderate Mitt Romney reared his head.
In the course of a single night, Romney said:
* On his “47 percent” comment: “This is a campaign about the 100 percent.”
* On health care: “Now and then, the president says I’m the grandfather of Obamacare. I don’t think he meant that as a compliment, but I’ll take it.”
* On immigration: ”I said I’m not in favor of a deportation — a mass deportation effort rounding up 12 million people and kicking them out of the country.”
* On gay marriage: “I would like to have the term ‘marriage’ continue to be associated with a relationship between one man and one woman, and that certainly doesn’t prevent two people of the same gender living in a loving relationship together having gay domestic partnership, if you will.”
Concluded NBC’s “First Read” of Romney’s remarks: “Last night was the candidate many of us expected to start seeing in June or July, not in September — it was the Romney of 2004.”
We’ve long wondered when the centrist Romney might emerge — particularly as his statement on the protests in Libya and even his initial handling of the “47 percent” video seemed driven by a “reassure the base” strategy that, to our mind, is almost entirely unnecessary.
Polling suggests that the conservative base is — and has been almost since the moment he became the GOP nominee — strongly behind Romney. Heck, even Bill Clinton doesn’t think the Romney-as-flip-flopper narrative will work.
The benefits for Romney of moving to the middle (in tone if not also in policy) are obvious….Share on Facebook
