Mitt Romney: Born Again

Steve, Excellent article. From the title, "Born Again", I believe you nailed it. This was the first time I have seen Mitt Romney reach out to the non-RINO's. I remember four years ago, when he was extremely disrespectful to all his challengers in the 2008 race, viciously attacking John McCain and the others during that race. I lost all respect. He broke Ronald Reagan's eleventh commandment: "Though shalt not speak ill of any fellow Republican." Romney violated that rule so many times, it turned my stomach. Unforgivable. I remember. He distanced himself from the tea party then, and still. I read his 88-page detailed plan. As a Libertarian, I support two of his plans: unleashing energy, and revoking regulations. It's a start.

Romney wasn't the only one who broke Reagan's rule. Not saying two wrongs make a right, just saying that you're judging him more strictly than the others for some reason. Hummm. Romney seems like a RINO to many because they don't understand the difference between a Federalist and a Statist. There's a big difference, but I'm tired plinking my one-string banjo.
He tried ignoring his base in the primary when it was rallying behind marriage in North Carolina and rallying behind Chick-fil-a when it was under attack, and that didn’t work. Then he tried just scaring people into voting against Obama, and that didn’t work.

Finally, Mitt Romney tried conservatism at Wednesday night’s debate—and that did.

The result was Romney – that’s right, the guy that was once named the No.8 RINO in the country by Human Events – provided the country the most teachable moment on the differences between Republicans and Democrats in a presidential election since before...
