Many conservative and libertarian (read small “l”, “Ron Paul people”) critics of Romney rightly point to his political vacillations and his tendency to blow with the political wind. Although he was certainly not my first, second, third, or even fourth choice in the recent primary/caucus, my view of his tendency to migrate in the direction of the strongest political wind was that this is actually an OPPORTUNITY for those of us in the “Restore” movement–if only we would quit hating on the guy for whatever our individual beefs may be, however legitimate those beefs are.
Instead of dwelling on the man’s past, we need to look at what we can drive him to do in the FUTURE by being the strongest political wind at his back. Is Romney a conservative ideologue? No. Is Romney a principled fighter? No, but neither are the wimpy moderates who originally supported him. Will he be influenced by the loudest voices in the room? MOST CERTAINLY.
There is no time like the present and despite the differences of even many of us in the constitutional conservative movement, we have fought too long and come too far to either walk away from or go lukewarm on the only person who has a legitimate chance to unseat the Godless communist currently occupying the White House who is now only one month–one election–away from indelibly enshrining Obamacare into our law and culture.
