Romney not a conservative


For all those who voted for Mitt Romney in the Washington and Idaho caucuses, I’m wondering: Why? If it’s because you’ve got the idea that he’s conservative, I wish you’d done your homework better (if you did any) before you headed to your caucus. If you had researched his record and history dating back to his father’s time as Michigan governor, you’d have found that he’s about as conservative as President Barack Obama.

Since it looks like he’ll probably end up being the Republican candidate, you’ve given the majority of Americans a choice of voting between two socialists, either one of which is going to tax and spend this country into bankruptcy.

Gee, thanks a lot. See you in the soup kitchen lines.
