WHAT'S THEIR PROBLEM WITH ROMNEY?February 22, 2012As governor of one of the most liberal states in the union, Mitt Romney did something even Ronald Reagan didn't do as governor of California: He balanced the budget without raising taxes.
Romney became deeply pro-life as governor of the aforementioned liberal state and vetoed an embryonic stem cell bill. (Meanwhile, Newt Gingrich lobbied President George W. Bush to allow embryonic stem cell research.)
Romney's approach to illegal immigration in Massachusetts resembled what Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona is doing today, making her a right-wing heroine.
Romney pushed the conservative alternative to national health care that, had it been adopted in the 49 other states, would have killed Obamacare in the crib by solving the health insurance problem at the state level.
Unlike actual Establishment candidates, Romney has never worked in Washington, much less spent his entire life as a professional politician. He's had a Midas touch with every enterprise he has ever run, including Bain Capital, the Olympics and Massachusetts.
The chestnut about Mitt Romney being pushed on unsuspecting conservatives by "the Establishment" is the exact opposite of the truth. The Establishment, by any sensible definition, is virulently opposed to Romney -- and for completely contradictory reasons.
The entire NFM (non-Fox media) hate Romney because he is the only candidate who stands a chance of beating Obama.
Meanwhile, many of the pillars of the conservative establishment also implacably oppose Romney. Fox News is neutral, but its second-highest-rated host, Sean Hannity, is anti-Romney, as is prominent Fox News contributor Sarah Palin -- who has also offered herself up as a possible presidential nominee at a contested convention. (Wouldn't a former candidate for vice president on a major party's ticket be part of the Establishment?)
The No. 1 conservative talk-radio host in America, Rush Limbaugh, is critical of Romney, and another top conservative talk-radio host, Mark Levin, is adamantly against Romney -- though both Limbaugh and Levin supported Romney as the conservative alternative to John McCain in 2008, and Romney has only gotten better since then.

Coulter loves her some Romney.
You loves you some Coulter.
Am I to draw a conclusion from this?
The Establishment, by any sensible definition, is virulently opposed to Romney -- and for completely contradictory reasons.Oh, this is satire.
Romney became deeply pro-life as governor...No he didn't, he changes back and forth dending who he wsnts votes from
Romney's approach to illegal immigration in Massachusetts resembled what Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona is doing today...Oh, the Mass border is next to Mexico??
Romney pushed the conservative alternative to national health care...There is no such thing as govornment controlled national health care which any true conservatives could endorse.
The conservative alternative to national health care is a free market non govornmental health care system
I could go on...
“(Wouldn’t a former candidate for vice president on a major party’s ticket be part of the Establishment?) “
Yeah...Palin has Establishment written all over her. LOL. AC is reaching deep.
Back in the 2008 election, I remember Rush was rather milquetost on Romney. He didn’t openly endorse him. The alternative was McCain, who Rush loathes. I don’t know about Mark Levin. I don’t remember what he did in 2008.
I remember after Fred Thompson dropped out, I was sort of OK with Romney, but not crazy about him. But since 2008, I have learned a lot more about Romney and have seen him in action and I don’t like what I’m seeing. I am now adamantly opposed to him. I suspect there are a lot of talk show hosts who preferred Romney over Huckabee and McCain, but not over Newt and Rick.
I've read quite enough.
Coulter jumped the shark on the issue some time ago.
Wonder if she was promised money or if she is just such the east-coast snob elite she can’t think of anyone but a fellow east coaster.
Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd that will about do it for my schoolboy crush on Ann Coulter...
She said Sarah Palin is part of the establishment. Her argument is invalid.
But then, who can blame her?
What I want to know is why is Coulter so in love with a stink’n liberal?
Coulter’s anorexia has gone straight to her brain. She has lost any credibility she had with me. Her unwavering love for Romney makes want to puke. No pun intended.
McCain won the nomination because states like Florida allowed crossover voting. I think it was an organized effort by Democrats to choose our nominee for us.
