Not sure why people are so surprised that one Romney Republican would turn on another. After all, it’s what liberals DO.
"A tender-hearted woman finds a dying, half-frozen snake on the side of the road. Taking the snake home, she revives it by the fire and and hugs it to her bosom.
"The snake then promptly bites her, then hisses smugly as she lies dying in disbelief: 'Silly woman! You knew I was a snake before you brought me in!'"
I think that’s exactly what’s happening. It’s perfectly plausible. The left, decades ago, began infiltrating and taking over the media and academia. They’ve accomplished the infiltration of, and are in the midst of the takeover of mainstream “Christianity”. One of the few remaining large institutions left for them to infiltrate and then rot from the inside out is the only significant opposition political party. Some of the Republican politicians have been more leftist than Democrats of a long-gone era. They seem to be using the double tactics of pulling actual Republican politicians to the left, and posing as Republican politicians themselves.
