“Mitt Romney Better Move to Right, Says Emboldened Tea Party”
Or else....what? Willard got nominated and if he is elected, it will be in spite of what conservatives think.
It’s also a safe bet that if willard were to support opening abortion clinics in schools on monday, demand seizures of firearms on tuesday, and propose an increase in the income tax rate to 95% on wednesday, the “conservative” abo crowd would still be insisting that willard is vastly better than hussein on thursday.
Willard has no compelling reason to move to the right. So he won’t. It’s just as simple as that.
Shhhhh....they don't know that yet. They haven't carefully dissected Mitt's comments, as after the Aurora shootings when he declared that bi-partisan gun control is "the kind of legislation I like."
What kind of margin will Republicans have in the House? It is 25 seats right now, so imagine a tax increase gets pushed by Mitt. Let's just call it a subtle tax increase where they perform the mysterious magic called "closing loopholes" and the get rid of the mortgage deduction but keep the rest of that mess we call a tax code.
Or let's say that he calls for letting the Bush tax cuts expire.
All of the Democrats + 26 Republicans (whose only concern, they will say, is supporting "their" president) will get it through the Hoouse over the objections of Tea Party newcomers. Bi-partisan and "that's the kind of legislation he likes".
The Senate will be trickier, but senators are slickier. They, too, would bemoan letting their president fail, so at present, I believe, they would need only 8 Rino senators to prevent filibusters and give us a tax increase called a "closed loophole." (BTW, Mitt is famous for that kind of tax increase in Massachusetts.)
He didn't even try for a 2d term in Mass. Imagine if he has the same plan as president.
A liberal Republican is actually more dangerous than a liberal democrat. "Compromise" and "bi-partisanship" is a sacrament to them.
