It's not really a fix, it's more to the fact that Romney is just a more skilled candidate than the rest. He's pretty damn intelligent in the ways of politics. The reality is it takes a good politician to win. You can cry about how unconservative these guys are, but that's more to the fact that the America public is just not as conservative as some people claim they are.
If you look at most of history, Republican presidents were not all that conservative, but that does not mean that some conservative laws and initiatives did not win out when they were president. This has to be the most conservative POTUS candidature I can remember. It's national politics, you can't have your cake and eat it too. You win some and you lose some. That's the way it will always be unless your particular small interest groups crowns it's own king of the nation. Never going to happen until Jesus comes, and everyone will be surprised how unlike them He really is.
So in your book lying panderer = good politician. It is obvious why you admire Mittens so much.
