Letter to the Editor
Although it doesn’t help Romney in the Republican primary it would help Romney in the general election if he were to flip 180 when he gets to the general election. So the “Etch a Sketch” Romney may be something he needs to embrace.
In order to win the Republican nomination a candidate has to go so far to the right that there’s no way they could win a general election. We all know Romney is faking it just enough to get nominated. Obamacare is Romneycare. Romney is actually pro-choice and supports Planned Parenthood. Romney doesn’t care about the social issues that evangelicals want. All Romney really cares about is cutting taxes for the rich and enslaving the middle class to be forever indebted to the top 1%.
So the Tea Party should just shut up, sell out, and support the Republican nominee because the longer Romney has to fake being a conservative the more he has to flip flop in the general election. Comments from Santorum and Gingrich saying things like the GOP is better off with Obama than “Etch a Sketch” Romney is just going to make Obama’s victory that much more of a mandate.
