The entire narrative that centrists have about Romney – that he’s not as extreme as other people in the party – is based on the idea that he’s lying through his teeth to get the nomination but will change course once he wins and follow his heart to the center.
It’s weird since he’s been a pretty consistent rightwinger. He does sound more moderate than Paul or Gingrich or Santorum… if you’re not actually listening to what he’s saying and are instead just listening to how he says it.
Anyway, can we move on that narrative, please? He’s secretly donating money to NOM. If anything, he’s hiding his more extremist tendencies so that he can get elected in November.
