Skip to comments.8 Reasons Why Mitt Romney Is More Right Wing Than George W. Bush
Posted on 04/26/2012 8:47:34 PM PDT by NoLibZone
1. Bush passed a huge tax cut plan, mostly benefiting the wealthy. Romneys tax cut plan is four times larger, more heavily weighted to benefit ultra wealthy.
2. Bush signed the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. Romney supports repealing virtually all campaign finance laws.
3. Bush supported comprehesive immigration reform, a path to citizenship for 12 million undocumented immigrants and provisions of the DREAM Act. Romney opposes all of it.

I think this thread should be moved to “Breaking”, don’t you?
I have zero regard for Mitt Romney.
I would like, however, for these yardbirds who spout it to give me a simple sentence definition of “right-wing”.
I tried saying that about Bush back in 1999 and was almost banned from FR for it.
Hindsight can be a real kick in the head sometimes...
Bush seemed to do conservative things almost begrudgingly. I guess we just didn’t trust his strategery enough...
Willard is worse though despite this articles claim. Romneycare and an AWB are two examples of that.
There sure is a lot of somewhat there.
You’re right, Washington...
Hmmm, I guess that means I'm wealthy. Should I buy a Bentley or a Rolls today?
For all the arguments to vote for Romney there is one that I cannot cross. He is pro abortion. Unlike with Reagan, his claimed conversion is simply not believable. Not at all. Reagan made a calculation that the people whose general view he supported also opposed abortion were right in their overall view and therefore he must be consistent and oppose abortion. He said as much and, as with everything else he said, he stayed with it. Romney would have to reverse himself on just about everything he has supported effectively, as governor and politician, in the past to be considered a conservative. That is possible. Some great conservatives have done just that. But making that total conversion at the beginning of a Campaign then using most of his resources in that campaign to trash the other candidates says that his conversion is false, not that he had any hard principles to begin with, but that his “principles” are wholly in the service of his ambitions and do not inform those ambitions- ends and means and all that.
Romney is positioning himself as the most conservative soundingRepublican nominee since Barry Goldwater in 1964
. I don't expect that stuff to last more than 24 hours past his calculation that he has irretrievable secured the Republican nomination.
I will vote for president but I will vote for someone I can support, alas, not someone who is apt to win anything, but that is the situation this time around.
Why the post to a blog that does nothing but excerpt another article?
Romney supported all of Bush’s immigration initiatives at the time, was pro-illegal as guv, and is already pivoting to support Rubio’s DREAM Act.
JFK was more right wing than anyone since! Some imagine that Nixon was right wing but he slapped on wage and price controls and had plans for national health care. JFK would not be allowed in the current Democrat party and would be considered a right wing extremist by the Republicans.
“”Send Mitt to Washington with one simple directive leave our States alone or we will find a democrat we can beat into doing that.”
I do plan to ignore the presidency for another four years. However, there’s not a chance in the world I’ll ever vote for either of the liberal bums the DC elites have selected for us.”
Just because we can’t win large victory’s does not mean we should skip out on the small ones.
Send Mitt to Washington with the simple orders and low expectations.
I know exactly what your seeing & feeling , i see & feel it too about our situation. its been like that for a very long time, and as the leftist put more people on the dole we lose ground both morally and financially. Perhaps inevitably this ship will sink and there may be nothing we can do about that.
Logically our only option is to get back to our States, to force decentralization while in the same act(almost inherently) we will be laying the necessarily ground work for a separation should that day come.
Then we will be able to address the issues using either market forces of competition among states for individual people(money & industry) as our allies. Or if our worse fears are realized, we will be prepared to cut ourselves free of the leftist nuts, to recreate in our land the land of the free.
“those independents to go ahead and vote for the real Obama rather than for the Republican half-assed clone. “
Good point. Why vote for a half-way Obama when we have a full on Obama?
I know a couple liberal guys who swore that they LOVED McCain and he is the ONLY Republican that they would ever vote for. I said, sure.
And it turned out that after McCain got the nom, guess how these guys voted? They voted Obama all the way.
The so called independents, if the lean lib, they are going to vote lib.
So you think we are in for another four years of Hope! and Change! ?
I do think that. There is no choice between the candidates except that Romney is not physically Obama. That is insufficient to win. Then the Democrats will spend multiples of what the Republicans can spend on campaign advertising. By election day many many voters will not know that there is anyone other than the kenyan still in the race.
That’s as far as I got.
