Skip to comments.CPAC embraces the new Mitt Romney (HUGE BARF ALERT)
Posted on 02/19/2010 7:46:41 AM PST by rabscuttle385
When Mitt Romney, candidate for president, came to the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2007, he was a fresh-faced over-eager student of Republican politics: He won cheers for a newfound social conservatism, and won a straw poll amid charges hed packed the hall.
Romney ended his candidacy in an emotional speech to CPAC the next year, and in 2009 he used the forum to open a critique of President Barack Obama that he spent the next year refining. The new Romney, received Thursday as the favorite son at the gathering of conservative activists, is a more constant, seasoned, and comfortable figure, one whose applause lines match up more closely with his record, and whose protégé Senator Scott Brown is his partys hottest star.
His fundamental weakness in 2008 was his seeming discomfort in his public skin. Hes more at ease now, though part of his past his role in reforming health care in Massachusetts while he was governor could still raise questions about his real political identity. But his aides believe hes successfully cast himself as a mature political figure, and the adult among potential Republican challengers to Obama in 2012.
In 2008, people had this perception of Mitt Romney as this kid sitting in the front of the classroom with his hand up, said Gary Marx, a conservative adviser to Romneys 08 campaign. Now hes taking a low key approach picking and choosing his spots to make his voice heard, and its worked very well for him. I think youve seen the full embrace of the conservative movement from Governor Romney.

More Bullshit from Politico!
CPAC embraces the new Mitt Romney
He's the best candidate that the liberals can supply for us... LOL ...
A RINO can’t hope & change his spots.................
CPAC/ACU is run by corrupt David Keene.
Exclusive: Conservative group offers support for $2M
Palin-bashing CPAC/ACU Chair donated $2,000 to Arlen Specter, endorsed Romney
Palin rebuffs CPAC, Keene
It’s so nice how Politico is looking out for our best interests
I love when liberal media ‘helps’ us this way.
Look how well it worked with them picking McLame for us!!
Sorry Politico....As Joe Wilson would say: ‘YOU LIE”
tell you the truth I was disappointed that Cheney spoke seeing as he thinks our military has changed and now we should accept perverts openly in the military.
I heard the rep from IN this morning and it was refreshing to hear him say that we need to get back to traditional social issues.
It amazes me how the GOP are to afraid of mentioning abortion and homosexuals when the majority do not accept their agenda
The GOP’s “Dr. Who.”
I wouldn’t vote for Romney for dog catcher.............he is boring and a loser............
Paul Ryan For President!
Cheney was ALWAYS a member of the OLD GOP Country Club HELL HE WAS FORD’S COS...ya don’t get any more Country Club then that. Cheney has a FAG daughter for G*D’s sake...kinda makes ya wonder what happened in the Cheney Household to cause THAT!
That image reminds me of the dead armadillos I used to see along Texas highways.
I’m all for traditional values....but I also want someone with BUSINESS experience...we need JOBS!
NO MORE RETREADS!
He is organized and has deep pockets. The establishment wants a safe established pick.
He will likely win the nomination, unfortunately.
Palin is the only candidate that can beat him.
I don’t care about “boring”. I care about his conservatism or lack thereof..............
Romney is the next biggest fraud to Obama. I would never vote for him. Why do dip sh_t republicans have such suicidal ways with selecting their leadership.
