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.
