Mitt Romney Claims To Be “Severely Conservative”

It’s like watching a robot self-destruct … David Frum opines on CNN:

Mitt Romney ended a very bad week with a pretty good weekend.

Tuesday, Romney lost two caucuses and a nonbinding primary to Rick Santorum. Saturday, Romney won the also nonbinding Maine caucuses and the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

Four weeks from now, no one will remember the Maine caucuses. I’m guessing though that people will remember a phrase from Romney’s speech to CPAC on Friday, in which he described himself as a “severely conservative” governor of Massachusetts.

    Is that anything like severe lymphoma?

  2. Good for him!  The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

    Severely. . . inconsistent.

    Severely. . . out of touch.

    Severely. . . unscrupulous. 

    Severely. . . dishonest and dodgy.

    Yep, sounds like a conservative to me! 

    [of course, those things could apply to just about any politician]

    Split personality disorder? Schitzophrenia? Or just your everyday politician? They’re all the same. Should be on meds, watched closely and no sharp objects.    Just my opinion.

    This is America–Mitt Romney can be whoever he says he is as much as he wants.

  6. If you want to run for president as a Republican you’re obliged to disavow all your redeeming qualities first.

    “Tuesday, Romney lost two caucuses and a nonbinding primary to Rick Santorum. Saturday, Romney won the also nonbinding Maine caucuses and the straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference.”

    That’s odd. After last year’s RNC sex club scandal, I thought those boyos would have the “bondage” thing all “tied-up”, so to speak.

  8. I can´t believe that you readers of disinfo make an argument against a politician because he CHANGEs his opinion. CHANGEing one´s opinion is indicative of an adaptative intelligence, specially when you are conservative… Mitt Romney is unarguably the candidate of the real CHANGE.

  9. If “Mitt” gets elected President will we be calling him “Mittens” as a nick name?
