    If Governor Romney represents the epitome of a "severe" conservative governor...then what/who constitutes a moderate Governor?

    Who thinks he's a conservative or a severe conservative?


    He's a big gov't liberal, Obama learned everything he knows about big gov't healthcare from Romney.

    This may be a sarcastic kind of thread, but I'd take the random joining of letters in alphabet soup more seriously than anything a politician says.

    Especially when s/he is trying to say something good about themself.

    :lol: I have been praying they are pulling Santorum to the forefront only temporarily so as to clearly distinguish what is and what is not part of the Presidential platform once Romney wins... :eusa_pray: IOW to better separate Romney from the Religious zealots in the GOP so he will have better appeal to any erstwhile wary Independents and Moderates in the general election...

    John McCain was a moderate. He won the nomination.

    Bob Dole was a moderate. He won the nomination.

    Even George H.W. Bush was a something of a moderate...he won the Presidency.

    I personally am not interested in running another moderate...I think I'm entitled to have my own opinion and vote for a candidate whose positions most closely matches my own philosophy and ideals....don't you?

    Isn't that what the right to vote is all about?

    The problem I have with Romney is he wants to piss down your back and claim that it's raining.

    Which brings me back to the original question.

    If Romney isn't a moderate...who is?

    Great video in my previous post to Jillian...it's Anderson Cooper's analysis, using Romney's own words and voting record.

    Who is "they"...

    Are you hoping that the republican establishment elites have enough power and iron fisted control of the party to organize a manipulation of the primary process to further their goal of thrusting their chosen candidate Romney upon us once again?

    While I wouldn't put it past them...it is failing miserably.

    Santorum has a double digit lead over Romney nationally.
