Mitt Romney wants to be your president. According to some people, he wants to be a conservative president. In fact, he’s more conservative than that crazy guy Newt Gingrich. Don’t worry about that stuff he did in Massachusetts. His greatness was in becoming governor of such a blue state as a Republican. What he did to get that job is inconsequential.
Romney actually tried to be the conservative candidate in 2008. Republicans were still dumb enough to pander to their base even after the drubbing of 2006. Alas, Romney’s varmint huntin’ was not enough. The candidate experienced in government was nominated back when Republicans were dumb enough to think Democrats would let Hilary Clinton win.
Now Mitney is going in the other direction. He’s going to run a general election campaign and let voters eventually give up and vote for him because Obama is that terrible. This year, his greatest challenge may be dinosaur Newt Gingrich. Gingrich is now at a whopping 50% in Florida. If Mitt loses New Hampshire, he’ll go into a Rick Perry type of slide.
I bet he wished Sarah Palin was in the presidential field now. She’d wipe the floor with Newt.
