This sounds pretty strange coming from a full-fledged, flip-flopping RINO like Romney:
"I wonder which team [Santorum] was taking it for," Romney quipped, drawing cackles of laughter from the audience.Hey, that's my line. To quote myself from yesterday (sorry):
But while we're speculating, how would Romney have behaved as a US Senator during the Bush years? I've no doubt he would have been a team player, but I'm not sure which team he would have been playing for.Byron York on Twitter:
Wasn't Santorum taking it for George W. Bush, a president Romney supported, for NCLB, legislation Romney supported?Back to Romney:
"I don't know if I've ever seen a politician explain in so many ways why he voted against his principles," Romney also told the Phoenix crowd.Hang on there: Romney has principles? You wouldn't know it from this or this, pieces of the tangled web he has woven over the years around his "stand" on abortion. William Saletan:
Looking at the 1994 and 2007 videos, it’s hard to know which Romney to believe. The transformation they convey is more than a change of mind. It’s a rewriting of emotional experience, or at least what was advertised as emotional experience. Was Romney telling the truth in 1994 when he described how Ann Keenan’s death had shaken his family? Or was he telling the truth in 2007 when he told Tim Russert that abortion was only theoretical to him until he became governor? How can you forget or minimize something you portrayed as so wrenching? How can one man be real unless the other is acting?So -- what exactly are Romney's principles? There's no way of knowing at this point, and it doesn't really matter. His record only makes sense if you see him as a political opportunist. Back in 2002 he was selling himself as a moderate who would work as a liberal change agent from within the GOP. Now he's selling himself as something else. Why should we believe him?
Why, again, would a conservative vote for this guy?
