Tea Party & True Conservatives getting bitch-slapped

Postby Huckleby » Fri Oct 05, 2012 4:54 pm

Note to True Conservatives: America is just not that into you.

The True Conservative pundits cheered Romney's Ayn Randian 47% remarks. "Run with it!" they advised. The True Conservative nipples hardened as Paul Ryan was selected as running mate. R&R aggressively sold Ryan's medicare plan to Floridians. How has this all worked out?

Time to shake the etch-a-sketch

The Severe Conservative has become the empathetic moderate.

Where are we now? Paul Ryan and his budget have been muzzled. Romney apologized on Hannity for his 47% theory, saying it was wrong, not just inarticulate. Romney is now bragging-up RomneyCare, he claims in debate he will deal with pre-existing conditions in health care (a lie). Romney no longer wants to cut taxes (a lie).

If Romney had been able to campaign as a moderate all along, he would be well ahead in the polls now.

The New Yorker went to great pains there to capture the contours of Romney's butt cheeks. Excuse me for noticing.
