Kevin DuJan over at HillBuzz has this to say about Mr. Mittens' comment from 2002:
THIS is whom the Cocktail Party GOP establishment is so desperate to make the Republican nominee in 2012?
Because that worked so well running John McCain — another moderate with progressive views — back in 2008.
When the Cocktail Party GOP establishment, the Left, the Obama campaign, and the agenda-driven media all agree that a candidate like Willard “Mittens” Romneycare should be the GOP nominee, Republican voters need to really ask themselves if they want THESE PEOPLE to be selecting the person who will run against Barack Obama in the general election.
