‘Extremists’ chase some Republicans toward Obama

‘Extremists’ chase some Republicans toward Obama | DispatchesUSA | Scoop.it
While the vast majority of Republican voters are likely to support Mitt Romney for president, some say they will back President Obama because of the GOP push to the political right.

Ruth Marcus - Mitt Romney's Extreme Makeover

Ruth Marcus - Mitt Romney's Extreme Makeover | DispatchesUSA | Scoop.it

Mitt Romney has a long, long history of chameleon politicking, as this article from February 2007 demonstrates (and there are plenty more to choose from).

Once again, in 2012, his views on abortion have a lot more to do with salesmanship than conviction. 

 

Most of the evidence suggests that left to himself, Romney is moderate on abortion; but there can be absolutely no confidence in his ability to withstand pressure from interest groups of any variety. Romney will simply be whatever his political bosses want him to be. He has no clear vision of his own.

 

The good news? Republicans are getting the message: Extreme social conservatism is unpopular. It has to be covered up if you want to win elections; and guys, in the long run, it just isn't worth it.

So make no mistake, Paul Ryan—the man you’ll see on stage debating Joe Biden—is the intellectual leader of the Republican Party. He just can’t admit that right now.


Here are 5 other things you won’t hear Paul Ryan say during the debate. ...
