Re: Northeast liberals...yeah...it’s called “growing” in office. As conservatives move to the Washington/New York corridor...they “grow”. That is, they become liberal. It seems to be a problem with the human condition...we like to become like those around us. We like to fit in.
Remember David Souter...the “conservative” George H.W. Bush appointed to the SCOTUS? He was the deciding vote in Kelo...it allowed governments to take private property and hand it over to a private developer...something I don’t think the framers of the fifth amendment had in mind.
Remember how the liberal media congratulated him for his “growth”.
If Romney gets to Washington, I fear he has a lot of room for “growth”.
NAIL ON HEAD
People move up to the beltway or the north east and then over time become pro homo, pro cross dresser, liberal, etc
Romney will be meeting more of the elitist and over time like Bush become more liberal then he already is, if that is possible.
Souter truly an ‘odd duck’ and often wondered; who it was; that brought his name on a plate to Bush. Huge mistake; altogether; unfortunate, misjudgment. The ‘plate’ of course; stopped with the president.
