When was the last time you ever saw Romney try to get to the right of anyone on an issue? Wait, don’t answer that.

I’m not the only one that has noticed Romney’s trailblazing hypocrisy here. The man who literally is in charge of maintaining President Reagan’s legacy, his son Michael, had this to say in response to the Romney campaign’s trailblazing desperation and lack of integrity:

“It surprises me that Mitt Romney and his supporters would raise this issue — when Mitt by his own admission voted for Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale who opposed my father, and later supported liberal Democrat Paul Tsongas for president. As governor of Massachusetts, Romney’s achievement was the most socialistic healthcare plan in the nation up until that time.

“Say what you want about Newt Gingrich but when he was Speaker of the House he surrounded himself with Reagan conservatives and implemented a Ronald Reagan program of low taxes and restrained federal spending. Newt’s conservative program created a huge economic boom and balanced the budget for the first time in more than a generation.

“I would take Newt Gingrich’s record any day over Mitt Romney’s.”

At this point Gingrich needs to win the Florida Primary, if for no other reason than the sheer entertainment value of witnessing what desperate and phony ploys Ann Coulter the Romney campaign will contrive next.

Either way, the rest of us can rest assure that Romney’s Republican trailblazing will continue—all the way to the bottom.
