Mitt proved to himself in the primaries that conservatives are inconsequential and just get in the way. I don’t think he cares even a little how or if we will vote. I don’t think he particularly wants to win the election. Winning would ruin him socially and be a burden he doesn’t need. What he needs, for his own satisfaction, is the Republican nomination, and he has that.
Honestly, arthurus, I think most conservatives are supporting mitt for the same reason most mormons are. For them, it's because he's a mormon. For the other, it's because he's a republican.
They could care less if their principles align.
He is a blue-blood, silver spoon in mouth, kind of guy who did the Mormon thing at BYU, and the blue-blood thing at Hahvuhd. (while managing to avoid the draft, coincidentally)
