Is Mitt a RINO (Republican in Name Only)?

    One can feel for the conservative Republicans. They feel their party is being hijacked by a liberal leaving the Presidential election to be between two liberals. There is a solid majority for Conervatives in the Republican party but the conservative vote is currently split three ways letting Mitt win.

    I do not support conservastive REpublicans but I can see they fel they are being robbed.

      Yeah they are.  Mitt may be more liberal than Obama if the winds blow the right way!

      I wouldn't exactly call Romney a liberal. Old fashioned east coast moderate Republican would be more like it. Someone called him a pragmatic problem solver, a "fixer" or something like that. Others are less kind.

        I agree. Romney is a moderate. Thank God. No raving right wingers for me!

          John McCain ran as a moderate. To say Romney is a moderate is a wishful stretch. Romney is all over the place, one side one day to get votes, and the next day another stance to get votes. Right, wrong or indifferent John McCain stood his ground like a rock. Romney's like a rollercoaster, up and down on just about all the issues. I can't figure out his stand on any issue.

    Mitt will be plenty conservative when they tell him to. The Tea Party seems to be the pay-master at this time...

    In no time he will be calling women sl*ts, don't you worry.
    And the audience will cheer."Yay!" "Woooooo!" "Yeahhhh!"
    And Rush will say "Ladies and gentlemen...I was wrong about Mitt."

    Too harsh? Too insulting? Too just plain mean and wrong?

    These are Mitt tactics. When he stops using them, I will.


    He is no liberal, believe me. He's a corporate raider. No conscience in the man, IMO.

    I'll admit I'm so sick of the term "RINO" I could puke.

    Especially since it seems to be tied to this mentality of "OH YEAH we're gonna totally take down the entire Democratic party and oh by the way half of the Republican party too! Wait why aren't the votes pouring in what's wrong with people?!"
