Romney’s ideological malleability is well known. As governor of Massachusetts and then U.S. Senate candidate against Ted Kennedy, Romney took politically advantageous positions that seemed to belie his inner conservatism. Whenever he had an argument with himself, it seemed like the other guy always won. As a conservative friend of mine rationalized, “At least he was tricking the liberals, not us.”I suspect the really annoying uncle is going to GET CHRISTIAN'S NOSE AGAIN!
But with Romney’s selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate, the era of questioning Romney’s conservative credentials feels like the Mesozoic Era. He delivered conservatism’s most attractive antidote to the Obama economy, which speaks volumes about Romney’s dedication to free-market solutions to the nation’s ills. This glorious flip inoculates him against any previous flops.
