Flashback: Romney Brags He’s a Progressive

How Does Mitt's "Conservatism" Measure Up?

Back when Mitt Romney was running to become governor of Massachusetts, he couldn’t wait to explain to people that he was a progressive, and not a partisan Republican.  Let’s knock off the nonsense about Mitt Romney being a conservative, because it simply isn’t so.  Romney has never been a real conservative, but he’s spent a good deal of time re-calibrating his image to have greater appeal to conservatives.  Of course, he’s not the only progressive running for the GOP nomination, but of late, he’s been trying to sell himself as a conservative.  There should be nobody who examines Willard “Mitt” Romney’s  record who will believe that.  H/T The Blaze for digging up the video:

It’s easy for candidates to claim that they had been conservatives all along, only now, when they want the votes of conservatives or Tea Party patriots, but Mitt’s surrogates in the media pretending he is a conservative is a laugh, since we see where Mitt was as recently in 2002.

Or was Mitt lying to the people of Massachusetts when he said he was a moderate, with progressive views?  You decide. I don’t think Barack Obama can be defeated by a progressive Republican.

    It's hard enough to convince independents that we need conservative leadership right now. Why does the establishment ignore the fact that the GOP has a severe shortage of real conservatives in, and running for, office?

    This is the best the GOP can do? Mitt Romney? Newt Gingrich? For God's sake, give us a real "Taxed Enough Already" conservative!

    If the GOP continues to seriously consider such candidates then it's become apparent that I can no longer consider myself a Republican.

    Sigh!

      I'd rather be an independent than chained to either of two heads of the same snake.

      But that's just me

    Mitt scored the endorsement of TEA PARTY darling Christine O'Donnel because he backed her ! You cant tell the players W/O a score card.

    Well, radio talk show host Jerry Doyle pointed out something yesterday:

    Obama is a consistent socialist.

    The only way to beat a consistent socialist is with a consistent conservative.

    That would be Ron Paul, according to Doyle. And I heartily agree.

    I will write in Ron Paul's name if I have to. We must remove all the Progressives of both parties from Congress and the White House to save this country.
