How the Gay Left Helps Mitt Romney

With Sarah Palin out, Mark Sanford becoming the star of a tacky Telenovela (El Gubernador y la Skank), and Tim Pawlenty becoming known as the RINO from the nutball state that elected Jesse Ventura and Al Franken, pundits are suggesting Mitt Romney is beginning to look like the last man standing for the 2012 Republican Nom; primarily on the basis that he seems to be the only Republican left who can keep his nads in his pants. (Meghan McCain may not like it, but that sort of thing still matters to Republican primary voters.)

The pundit class also argue that Romney’s big handicap is the bigotry of conservative evangelical voters against Mormons. That cannot be discounted, it was what motivated and propelled Mike Huckabee’s minions. But next time around, Southern evangelicals may be more accepting of the Mormon thing because of the role of Mormons in passing Prop 8 and the vicious anti-Mormon attacks from the Gay Left and the media that followed.

Two cliches apply here: Politics makes strange bedfellows and nothing unites like a common enemy. The Gay Left eagerly took the bloody hands of the Islamo-Fascists in common cause against George W. Bush and the “Christian Right.” The backlash against Prop 8 may be enough to unite some of the evangelical right with the Mormons, or at least make them get past their visceral disdain.

IMHO, Romney’s real handicap is that he comes across like a big phony. I’m not saying that he is, but his shifting positions on abortion and amnesty most definitely have the appearance of opportunism.

The Republicans Choose Whoever's Turn It Is. Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum.

  1. “All About the Mormons” — one of the best SP episodes ever!

    LOL

    If Mitt does run, he’s going to experience some seriously brutal attacks from the loons on the Left.

    Lol, indeed it does. Good post, nicely done. I myself am hoping for a Romney/Thune ticket, but we’ll see what happens.

    Why not Gov. Bobby Jindal of LA, or Sen Jim DeMint of SC?

    Enough with the RINOs like Romney. That’s precisely why we lost last time around; the Rockefeller-blueblood-moderate wing of the party got ahold of the nomination process and sent up a lukewarm “nice guy.”

    That’s not what we need. We need a hawkish, authentic conservative as our standard-bearer; someone red in tooth and claw, with experience in leading the charge against the Left. I’m not the least bit interested in another candidate who wants to “reach out”, “start a dialogue” or “compromise” amidst a spirit of “bipartisanship.”

    I’m probably about as interested in a candidate like that as I am in one who wants to “sit down” with the leaders of Iran, North Korea, or Hamas.

    The Left needs to be stopped. Plain and simple.

    I’m no Evangelical and I never supported Mike Huckabee either. That said, I do not trust Mitt Romney.

    Our last GOP president did an embarrassingly good job of co-opting democratic traits — like letting a GOP congress spend like drunken sailors on leave for fleet week, and basically having no economic policy in the face of a Tsunami of economic troubles. I have no confidence in Gov. Romney, especially after his term of office in MA, being any better.

    That Sen. McCain could savage the man’s fiscal policies as Governor in a primary debate say something very bad about this fellow’s record. Since when is McCain anybody’s fiscal conservative? He was perhaps the best of a bad litter left standing by the end of February.

    Romney/Thune? This is the same cynicism that paired Sen. McCain with a real conservative, Gov. Palin — a role that energized the base, but certainly didn’t keep Sen. McCain from going on strike when a massive bailout bill (read that as insane spending) wasn’t going to pass.

    I don’t care to be fooled again. I may not be the most conservative contributor to this blog, but I’m reluctant to trust Mitt Romney.

    Besides, are we ignoring the real issue at hand? 2010 congressional elections are critical and they need to be the real focus at this point.

    Mitt Romney has no chance of being elected President, because the American people no longer trust the greedy Republican establishment that is behind him. His life has been dedicated to the making of money, and what this country needs is people in positions of responsibility whose lives have been about service. Mike Huckabee would be a much better Republican nominee than Romney because he appeals to independents as well as social conservatives.
