How Democrats plan to use a lobbying group to paint Mitt Romney as too right wing
foxnews ^ | April 25 2012 | Juan Williams

The big news in the world of political lobbying last week was the flight of major corporations from the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

In recent years ALEC had become the model for coordinated, effective lobbying on Capitol Hill as well as in state capitols. ALEC pioneered the strategy of creating one-size-fits-all legislation on a wide range of issues and then pushing it into law across the country.

[snip]

Romney’s endorsements of ALEC laws are a major part of why independent voters are reluctant to back him.

So, get ready to hear a lot more about ALEC-style backroom, corporate lobbying as a key part of the Democrats’ attack on Romney as too right-wing for America.

The Obama administration supports Stand Your Ground.

The head DHS for the current admin signed SYG into law as Gov of AZ.

I don’t believe they have thought this through very well.

Bwahaha... Mittens too far right!?

Considering how liberal old Mitt is, then the people making this claim are so far out in left field that they’re practically behind the dug out.

“I don’t believe they have thought this through very well.”

I think they have thought it through very well. Portray your liberal opponent as to far to right so that when he loses the GOP will come up with someone even more liberal next time...kind of a tail waving the dog sort of thing but I have a different part of the male dogs anatomy in mind..

(How Democrats plan to use a lobbying group to paint Mitt Romney as too right wing)

WOW, you obviously can not fix stupid...........
Romney could not get any conservative support in any State during the entire primary. Conservative radio and papers and blogs have blasted him from day one as Obama Lite..
The only people that would believe Romney is too right wing are Communists and they are already in the bag for Obama

If they are only successful he just might stand a chance at winning. We live in a sad world.

They certainly have their work cut out for them.

Heh. Six months ago, Romney would’ve paid them for the help.

Such Bovine Excrement, piled high and deeps and it smells to high heaven

For someone who has been around going on 7 decades and considers himself VERY knowledgable and politically astute (hey, aren't all Freepers?) last week when the stories broke about the number of Corps pulling their support from ALEC, that was the FIRST I EVER HEARD of this Organization.

I'd bet the farm (if I had one) that O'Reilly could send Jesse Waters out anywhere and ask 100 people what ALEC was and I doubt he would find more than 2 or 3 people who could correctly ID it--even after it has been in the news the past couple of weeks.

Thus for FAUX News's Far Left Commentator Williams to suggest that independents will withhold their support for Mittens because he supposedly supported ALEC (another breaking development I was not aware of) is pure BS

Goddamn, Juan, you are dumber than the voters. Maybe, maybe 2% of the adult population of the US knows of ALEC and their political machinations.

Good luck with that plan. If it has any effect at all it might be to persuade a few more Conservatives that holding their noses one more time isn’t so bad after all.

Juan Williams? This is just too rich. 1. Mittens is tailor-made for every lefty "cause" du jour. 2. He's on record (as governor) as (not just supporting, but) promoting every bit of their agenda. He is 'Me, too Mitt' on abortion, gay marriage, gullible warming,gun control, minimum wage, commiecare, cap & trade...on & on. The only way I'll consider voting for this empty suit is if there's an ironclad contract that this guy *will* adhere ("severely") to a conservative agenda *without exception*. In fact, make that a contract drawn up by Mark Levin, himself. (ps & then /rant off) We should start a pool that he chooses Dream Act Rubio as his VP. All proceeds could go to Free Republic.

Not even the far left wing libs at work buy that Romney is right wing. One guy even said he was almost as left as Obama.
