Romney Reappears, Criticizes Conservatives, Advocates More Of Same In GOP

August 7, 2013 by  

With his characteristic vigor of a reanimated corpse, failed Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has re-entered the public fray. His mission: to undermine libertarian-leaning Republican efforts to revitalize the Party’s conservative spirit and defeat President Barack Obama’s progressive policies.

Speaking in New Hampshire Tuesday, the lukewarm conservative who turned off many GOP voters in the last election sought to weigh in on the current power struggle between Tea Party factions of the GOP and party-line Republicans like himself.

Pointedly referencing Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas) crusade to defeat Obamacare by threatening a government shutdown unless the President’s healthcare law is defunded, Romney (who, remember, designed a healthcare scheme as Governor of Massachusetts which served as a blueprint for much of Obamacare), urged caution.

“I badly want Obamacare to go away, and stripping it of funds has appeal. But we need to exercise great care about any talk of shutting down government,” Romney said. “I’m afraid that in the final analysis, Obamacare would get its funding, our party would suffer in the next elections, and the people of the nation would not be happy.”

Romney also urged Republicans to resist any shift from the Party’s establishment (RINO?) values.

“We cannot change policy to follow popularity; in the end, right prevails,” he said. “We can change policy if new information shows us that we were wrong-of course, that’s part of staying smart.”

The failed Presidential contender evidently does not count the fact that running a Republican with extreme big-government moderate positions against a Democrat hated by small–government conservatives is no way to win elections as information warranting a change in GOP strategy. Either that, or he’s been working for the Democrats all along.
