Moderate Republican Conspiracy?
 
Given the new "moderate" stance by candidate Mitt Romney after his fiery and conservative pre nomination tea party and evangelical rhetoric, one has to wonder if this may have been planned all along. It is clear that many long time republicans including the Bush family and other high profile R moderates have been very unhappy about the far right swing of their party, almost a guarantee of non electability as seen by general polling concerning Palin, Perry, Bachmann and other tea party candidates. If so it was a very clever ruse.

Sure looks like to me, Romney is going to make a great president, willing to work in a non partisan way to make America a better place and will be open and honest with the American people. It will be a complete 180 degree change from what we have now.

Well, I would hope so. But one has to question Romneys "honesty" given all of his 180's on so many issues of the right and left, no?

Yes, it's clear that the old school, go along to get along socialism at 50 mph instead of 60 mph, ruling class republicans dislike any principled challenges to their power. They saw Reagan as 'unelectable' as well.

So yes, they love Romney. He'll act very conservative, and then give in to the Dems.
