Romney Doing the Job the Republican Establishment Won't Do

The republican establishment is.... Wrong Ann, the establishment is all elected republicans and their organizations. That includes formerly elected but still active players too, but lets not exclude the bulk of the formal members just to stretch a point. Shame on you, that's what the left does. And all of those big government republicans from McCain to Bush to Romney are part of the problem, not the solution. Romney having one good policy does not a conservative make him. If he even believes in stopping illegal immigration, which remains to be seen. So far, his staff appointments and recent speeches indicate a left of center direction for camp Romney. He is, most of all, an opportunistic, tone deaf, professional politician.

WC, great post and absolutely spot on. Romney may be a nice guy, but he is not a man of deep and abiding character like Reagan - not even close. I would take Newt Gingrich over him any day becuase I believe Newt cares far more about this country than does Romney. Romney merely wants to be president above all else.

That's SO funny Sara ... like Newt ISN'T totally enamoured with being elected president!

Newt is a great debater and historian, but he cares only about himself.....

Sara, while I too initially wanted Newt for President I cannot agree with your opinion of Romney. I believe Mitt truly does love this country and while we may disagree with his policies, I am certain that when he says as a grandfather he is quite concerned about what we are leaving to his grandchildren. I know as a grandfather and a father it is one of my major concerns.

I will be voting for Romney even if I thought Newt was superior because Obama having another four years will be the death of this country. It is so far past the time that the productive stand up and take this country back from those who vote themselves benefits at our expense. How much will Romney do that I am unsure of, but I know he will slow the decay tremendously. ABO!

Can you please provide a few recent Romney quotes that support your post?

I didn't hear Romney's acceptance speech Tuesday night, but I heard it was excellent and very conservative.

Yes, it was an outstanding speech...very Reaganesque.

.....and extremely refreshing to hear our country described in positive terms once again. If Romney follows through with even half his promises I will be satisfied.
The actual Republican Establishment –- political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits -- are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration.

Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure that employees are legal and allowing state police to arrest illegal aliens. He is the rare Republican who recognizes that in-state tuition, driver's licenses and amnesty are magnets for more illegal immigration.

These positions are totally at odds with Establishment Republicans who pander to...
