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.
