Romney Is Having Troubles Flying the Conservative Flag

Back on September 9 th I questioned Romney’s movement towards a more conservative stand after his proven track record to the contrary. I guess I am not the only one.

A posting on Politics Central points out that Mitt received a less than enthusiastic greeting at a recent American Spectator event. While Rumsfeld was enthusiastically received, it appears that Romney gave a speech that was “a waterfall of platitudes, seemingly ripped from the pages of a 1964 edition of Reader’s Digest”. They quote attendees that were not pleased with his speech.

The author follows with a conversation with National Review’s Kathryn Jean Lopez, who has been a strong Romney booster. She is quoted as saying “that Republicans should keep their options open for 2008”. So it looks like Romney is having difficulty in convincing people of his conservative principles. I wonder why?
