I got a few nastygrams from the Romneybots for pointing out that he is a socialist POS. Here is my response to one.

My response to rurgan.
If you are talking about vetting a candidates positions...you are right. Im doing what they should be doing. Pointing out that Romney has all the same positions as Obama is what all conservatives should be doing. Blindly supporting a liberal candidate with a known socialist record does nothing but damage the conservative movement. It makes us all hypocrites.
If you are ok with supporting Planned Parenthood, abortion, liberal judges, socialized healthcare, government mandates, global warming, cap & trade, forcing Catholic hospitals to violate their faith, TARP bailouts, a tax plan that defines the rich at an even lower $$ amount than Zero, and empty political rhetoric, Romney may be the right candidate for you. To me, its like distinguishing between Obama and Hillary. Are their differences?...sure. Would Hillary be better than Zero?...probably. Would I vote for her if she had an R behind her name and was running against Zero? No. Likewise, I wont support Romney. Some folks are just a bridge too far....even if they have an R behind their name.
Oh I figure there are a few romneybots around.
I just posted this because I can clearly see the party is trying to “clean him up” before the election. Most in the GOP know darn well we want someone who is prolife and profamily. They know also that Mittens does not fit that mold and they are trying to “please us” or at least this is how it comes across to me. Too late in my book, they should have tried to “clean him up” before now!
As some FReeper already said, he should have been “acting conservative” at least ten years ago!
