I don't. I think he worked up the red-meat for the primaries with every intention of gravitating back toward the middle just to get the nomination. Republican critics think that he's too lefists. You guys should be thrilled that Rush, Coulter and Savage were doing their best to keep this guy down.
I think Romney is a pragmatist. I think he takes what he's got and makes it work. I honestly don't think he really cares about the social issues in any Christian fundamentalist sense. If it came to him from congress, he of course would deal with it, but I think you're getting a Michigan-born, Massachusetts governor, former businessman. I don't believe he's someone who let's either party dictate.
And yet, he won't explain his plan to create 12 million jobs or reveal the tax loopholes that will negate his 7 trillion in tax cuts and military budget increases.
For someone who is campaigning on the deficit, he's awfully reluctant to explain how he isn't adding trillions to it.
So far, his rhetoric doesn't add up
