I don’t know about you, but I’ve been wondering exactly what conservatives stand for during the last…oh, 15 years or so. It seems to me that they stand for fidelity, unless they’re doing the cheating, and fiscal responsibility unless they’re actually in charge, and safety for America unless they’re actually in charge….So it was with great relief that I read this interview with Mitt Romeny, wherein he explained that conservatives think that only the states know what’s best for the people (unless they’re in charge at Federal level).
A new poll of Republicans by Harris brought bad news for the White House aspirations of both Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin, who both find themselves trailing none of the above. Among Republicans Romney leads Palin, 14%-13%, when voters were asked who the leader of the GOP is, but None beat both of them with 34%. Thus far neither Palin nor Romney has convinced Republicans that they can turn the Party of No into the Party of Go.
