That royalist Mitt Romney, the choice of GOP insiders and the pale pastels crowd has done it again. Lord Romney is prone to say things at inopportune moments that make conservatives groan and Obama giggle. Isn’t it just great that the Mittster doesn’t worry about poor people because they are so well taken care of on the government plantation? Yep that’s pretty much what he said and it takes a special kind of stupid to hand the media a soundbite like that.
Listen as Krauthhammer explains *this is bad*:
Obviously Krauthammer has pegged Romney correctly. I don’t know for sure what Romney believes and I’m not sure he does either. Maybe it is nothing more than the fact Romney is new to conservative ideas, but it galls all the more that the GOP base is being fed another “electable” squish.
I suppose conservatives will saddle up for Romney if they must but will he win? Maybe, but he is looking like a might heavy load to drag across the finish line.
