Romney did not have the voting record to back it up either, made it difficult to etch-a-sketch
I voted for Romney reluctantly.
He was a self-avowed Progressive, a national socialist. When Anne Romney stated that the only friends her family had in Massachusetts were Liberals, I knew it was an impossible situation.
The best determination of what a politician will do if elected is what he did after being elected in the past. Romney was no conservative though I came to believe he was a nice guy with basically conservative family-oriented principles who passionately believed in compromise and consensus, which is always a losing situation for rock-ribbed Conservatives.
The Republican Party cannot win nationally by compromising our principles and pretending to be liberal Democrats.
