Mitt Romney: Groundhog Day for the GOP

Romney Hold Everything

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie told The Washington Post, “It seems like ‘Groundhog Day.’ ”

And we’re trying to figure out which alternate universe establishment Republicans are living in now that the journal that claims to be the “nation’s newspaper of record” has dubbed Mitt Romney a GOP elder statesman.

 Is it the alternate universe where the Republican Party has “binders full of women.”

 Or the alternate universe where “middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less."

 For our money it is the alternate universe where Romney says "I've been as consistent as human beings can be," because one constant identified in the article was Romney continued reliance with and alliance with Republican consultants and moneymen who favor content-free campaigns; such as Scott Reed, who ran Bob Dole’s content-free 1996 campaign for President where Dole offered to change positions and be Ronald Reagan if that’s what the Party wanted.

 And Eric Ferhnstrom who famously described the difference between the GOP Primary Romney and the fall campaign Romney to CNN, with a slight smirk that suggested he believed he was about to use a clever line; “Everything changes… It’s almost like an Etch A Sketch. You can kind of shake it up and restart all over again.”

The other constant is Mitt Romney’s support for big business – big government oriented candidates who are opposed by the grassroots conservative base of the GOP, such as Idaho Congressman Mike Simpson and Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst.

One friend quoted in The Washington Post article said Mitt Romney wants to be the “anti-Jim DeMint,” and by joining forces with the US Chamber of Commerce to support Big Government Republican candidates like Simpson and Ernst against Tea Party movement and limited government constitutional conservative opponents Romney is making it quite clear that he has little in common with the former South Carolina Senator’s principled approach to government.
