Romney defends conservative credentials, says he was the conservative alternative 4 years ago
Washington Post ^ | January 3, 2012

Posted on 01/03/2012 1:09:08 PM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

DES MOINES, Iowa — Looking past Iowa, Mitt Romney defended his conservative credentials Tuesday as he anticipated escalated attacks in New Hampshire and beyond from his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination.

“Perhaps people forget that I ran for president four years ago, you may recall that along with Mike Huckabee I was the conservative alternative to John McCain,” Romney said on Fox News Channel. He was responding to rival Newt Gingrich, who had accused Romney of lying about his moderate record. Romney said Gingrich, who has fallen in polls in the face of negative attack ads by Romney’s allies, was “apparently angry.”

“I’ve got a record, and it’s a conservative record,” Romney said.

Romney has spent most of the nearly four years since he dropped out of the 2008 race trying to win over a skeptical GOP base. He’s had trouble with the party’s right wing, which so far has jumped from candidate to candidate as it searches for a conservative alternative to the former Massachusetts governor.

Romney said he is anticipating stepped up criticism from the Republican field in the wake of the leadoff Iowa caucuses Tuesday night.

Let me be clear...I’m not saying I support Romney, but Rush Limbaugh clearly was backing him in the final week(s) of the republican primaries that went to John McCain.

Rush said he did it because compared to Juan McCain he is conservative. I remember him passionately telling people to vote for Romney. So even if Romney does win at least (according to Rush) he won’t be as bad as McCain. Possibly a lessor of two evils deal, but Rush was pretty passionate about saying Romney was the true conservative.

Why in the world would the GOP want a candidate that couldn't even beat McCain?

Logic would tell us that we need a BETTER candidate than McCain...not someone who lost to him.

Mitt Romney may be a bit more conservative than John McCain, but that does NOT mean he is a conservative.

I mean, just because Rosie O’Donnell weighs less than Roseanne Barr, it doesn’t mean Rosie O’Donnell is thin.

Here's what Limbaugh said in February 08. “I think now, based on the way the campaign has shaken out, that there probably is a candidate on our side who does embody all three legs of the conservative stool, and that’s Romney,” Rush Limbaugh told his huge audience. “The three legs of the stool are national security/foreign policy, the social conservatives, and the fiscal conservatives.”

Laura Ingraham introduced Romney at CPAC as a “true conservative” and “a conservative’s conservative.”

Can someone name a major issue Romeny moved to the center on in the last four years? That's why I get mental whiplash when I listen to the jawbone media.

Hopefully the results for these primaries alone will convince the establishment that Mitt is out.

January 3, 2012 Iowa (caucus)
January 10, 2012 New Hampshire (primary)
January 21, 2012 South Carolina (primary)
January 31, 2012 Florida (primary)
February 4, 2012 Nevada (caucus)
February 4–11, 2012 Maine (caucus)
February 7, 2012 Colorado (caucus)
Minnesota (caucus)
Missouri (primary)

I’d see NH and Maine as the only ones where he’ll do ok.

Other than that, hopefully Republicans can dispense with the idea of him running by February.

After that, if he hangs in anyway, with any luck he’ll do terrible in March.

The grassroots has to do the right thing and vote for “someone else”, IMHO.

LIBERALS feel betrayed by Mitt?

Can Mitt Romney Ever Flip Back Again? "It would be a mistake, though, to believe that, long after Iowa, once the horse race is over, and if he’s elected, Romney could suddenly flip a switch, clear the air of the toxicity left behind by the Republican field, and return to being a cautious centrist whose most reassuring quality is his lack of principles. His party wouldn’t let him; and, after all, how a candidate runs shapes how a President governs. In politics, once a sellout, always a sellout; once a thug, always a thug."

Maybe your whiplash is actually caused by Mitt's flips. He was never a conservative, only played one on TV. He was perhaps slightly less liberal than McCain, which would make him the more conservative of the two - but that isn't much to crow about.

It's kinda like me saying I'm prettier than Helen Thomas. I am, but that doesn't make me pretty.

I agree.

I'm pointing out what El Rushbo and Laura Ingram among others were saying then vs what they are saying now.

Again what substantial conservative issues has Mitt moved to the center on in the last 4 years that knocked a leg of the stool off for these jawbone yackers?

He met the three legged stool test for them then....and has only shifted more to the right since 08. Something ain't right.

He hasn’t moved to the center. He’s always been on the left. He just tried harder to hide it in 2008. If you don’t know, here goes.

He is not a social conservative by any stretch of the imagination. Social conservatives do not support the pro gay agenda. Romney is pro gay. He is the father of gay marriage in the US, he supported ENDA, he was pro gays in the military and was even booed for that position in the 2008 election. He is the father of Obamacare with his own Romneycare.

We are very familiar with Romney on this website. Four years ago Mitts team of liars were all over this site telling one lie after another in an attempt to convince conservatives that he was one of us. Just like today, he and his mittbot minions failed.

He calls himself a conservative businessman. I believe that may be the truth. He believes in conserving his own money, for his own purposes, but he is not a fiscal conservative because he has no problem spending other people’s money. He has no problem forcing people into accepting govt. mandates such as those in Romneycare. He has no problem raising taxes by calling them fees and collecting more taxpayer money to feed an expanding govt.

We know Romney here and he is not conservative.

IMHO, these primaries will tell the story that Mittens has very little support from the the rightmost 30% of voters.

He’s only got the “we must win” Republicans who have no care which Repub is elected and fear losing more than anything.

Once those folks see other candidates surging past Mittens, he’s gonna start lookin’ silly, IMHO, and they’ll abandon him and jump on a more winning bandwagon.

Might as well forget about Supreme Court decisions if Mittens is elected.

Anyone who wants clear-cut positions on abortion, homoagenda, etc., Mittens would be a nightmare.

Conservatives will have to email their Congresscritters like crazy for the next 5 years to get anything going in the right direction to begin with, probably no matter who is elected.

I remember supporting Romney after Fred Thompson dropped out as essentially the only alternative to McCain.

I didn't know much about Romneycare at the time. During the Obamacare debate I learned how Romneycare was a precursor. I expected for me to even consider Romney he would have to recant his support and admit Romneycare was a mistake, but he never did.

I don't know how we could trust the guy to repeal Obamacare even if he were elected with Republican majorities in both houses.

Remember too the CONTEXT of the supposed "endorsement" of Romney. It was about ten minutes of monologue, and the subject was NOT Romney, the subject was the dismal field of Republicans. I never heard, nor did I ever see transcripts, of Rush "urging" people to vote for Romney. It's a myth that Rush "backed" Romney. It's TRUE that Levin, at the very end, urged people to vote for Romney over McCain in the primary, but Levin made it CRYSTAL CLEAR that it was a reluctant endorsement, that he thought Romney was the least bad of a piss-poor lot.

Go back and listen to or read the ENTIRE segment referred to here, where Rush very carefully said that Romney "embodied" -- "probably embodied," if I remember correctly, the three legs of the stool. Furthermore, Romney was only mentioned in passing, a very small part, of that discusion from Rush. WORDS MEAN THINGS, and Rush tiptoed around anything close to an endorsement, though Romney's suporters flat-out LIED and said otherwise. The only time I've ever heard Rush praise Romney was for his Religion in America speech. Rush has NEVER, that I've heard, praised Romney's politics and on the contrary, during the '08 primaries, he played clips of Romney and followed up with, "Folks, this is not conservatism." He also said after the first primary debate that included Fred Thompson: "Folks, there was only one conservative on the stage last night, and that conservative was Fred Thompson."

Seeing as how Romney was also on that stage, it's pretty clear to me that Rush thinks pretty lowly of Romney's politics.

Ok, so the field was dismal. He said Romney embodies the three legs of conservatism. Rush was playing a game to destroy McCain. But since words mean things, it appears Rush danced with the devil whether he said probably or does embody.

Romney for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.

Romney moved to the right four years ago. He tried his best to convince the world he really was conservative. He failed four years ago. He has tried to avoid moving in any direction this time. He allows the other candidates to make statements about him and gets his minions in the press to attack them.

Rush has always said his job is to entertain as well as inform. Listeners like you must learn to be discerning or else you end up unthinking, just like Obama’s supporters. Remember, even Rush can make a mistake.

Well I listened to it live 4 years ago and to be honest it had me confused for most of this election cycle until Rush mentioned it again. I thought I must have just dreamt it because no one was talking about it. I even asked about it on FR and no one responded. If it was not an endorsement then I either took the bait and fell for the trick or Rush didn’t do a good job of ‘splaining his position or he was endorsing him (to defeat McCain).

Keep in mind I am NOT a Romney backer he is way to moderate and wishy-washy for me, but it wsa pretty clear to Rush was backing Romney at the last minute. Which was as shocker because he really doesn’t endorse in the primary. For example, who has he endorsed this time? no one.
