The Romney problem

Today's radio podcast is a discussion of the problem that conservatives have (or should have) with the presidential candidacy of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. I deal straightaway with the issue of why many devout Mormons who ought to have a problem with Romney because of his hypocrisy on social issues ignore that hypocrisy.

I will warn readers and listeners that this may be one of the most controversial programs I have ever done.

Don't you think that Rudy actually has more "issues" with true conservatives than Mitt does? After all Mitt was able to be a Republican winner in a very blue state. Really, all Mitt has to do is remind people that he was as conservative as he possibly could be, not as much as he would have liked.
Personally, I think the Republican nomination is McCain's to loose. It's in the bag, so to speak.

Rudy is a non-issue, because outside of New York we understand that he does not have a prayer.

Right now Romney would seem to be the frontrunner because he has not only Establishment money (the Romneys are historically the biggest Rockefeller Republican family in the Party short of the Rockefellers themselves-remember George was the Governor of Michigan and spent his career trying to destroy conservatives...he and Rockefeller joined in league at the '64 Convention), but has the base out west he has built...a very strong one, among his coreligionists who will vote for him, it would seem, for no other reason.

I agree that the race between he and McCain will be very tight...I hope it is extremely tight because it may allow a more conservative candidate to squeeze through.
