Political and social observations from two aspiring hedgehogs who love the Isaiah Berlin essay.

Some Conservatives are starting to stink to high Heaven particularly those who consider themselves "True" Conservatives yet would still vote for someone who is for gay unions at the very least and has come out recently and said that he would USE PUBLIC TAX MONEY to pay for abortions (CNN 4/2/07). It's funny also that the media focused on Romney's MINOR blurb about hunting and not paying attention to what Rudy said. Who do you think that the MSM is more scared of? To have every news outlet that the Liberal MSM has ever created to make a stink about hunting (NOT 2ND AMMENDMENT RIGHTS WHICH ROMNEY IS FIRMLY FOR) as opposed to something even more important about abortions and making it a public (you and me) responsibility? More on this in a minute. You "Conservatives" need to wake up. I don't care if Rudy is "at least" being up front about his positions. They are the wrong positions. If he isn't going to change his views and side on Conservative priciples AT THE LEAST then he's not worth it.Now people are starting to harp on an actor who was once a Senator for a short time. Just because he saved the day on TV, it's still TV and not the real world. Do you think that Hollywood would be any different in dealing with Fred Thompson as Mitt Romney in Massachusetts? Hollywood has made their pick and conservatives are ready to jump ship on a guy who's proven himself and moved in the Conservative direction for a "non-executive" actor? You people are beginning to make me sick from your smell.The last part about some of you "conservatives" is that if you don't like Mitt Romney it's not really about him, it's about his religion and you know it. If it weren't then you wouldn't have to keep explaining that you "don't have a problem with mormonism."Now back to the MSM and what they know about "conservatives" right now when it comes to Mitt Romney. They know that you - ALL OF YOU - Conservatives are having problems. Your off-balance and there are so many variables to it. They know that you have a religion problem, an issues problem on getting on the same page, a whose electable problem, and a morals and values problem. They are playing you like fiddles and you're eating it up. They're putting stories out there knowing that you'll eat your own at their hands.Mitt Romney says something about being a life long hunter and Mike "Hack"abee goes out on NATIONAL TV (CBS LIBERAL MSM CENTRAL) and has a problem with Romney talking about hunting yet says that Rudy's at least "honest" about his abortion stance and public funding of them. I don't care what "Hack"abee said about opposing that stance. He still feels that Rudy's a better person to be the Republican party nominee than someone whose made the change in my (a True Conservatives) position.I'm tired of the bigot riddled Liberal MSM comments about religion when it comes to Romney and I'm even more tired of bigoted "True" Conservatives eating their "BS" up and regurgitating it back to us giving them credibility and eating away at people who's backgrounds both personal and professional truly serves our needs as Americans.I'm tired of it and any conservative who is a true conservative truly believes in AMERICA and the traditional values that this country was built on should go out and fight against this.
100% right-on!!! You said it clearly and honestly! Mitt Romney has a record of honest conservatism and should be applauded for his standards! The GOPiers are losing it and they have nobody to blame but themselves for supporting "liberal" Conservatives like Giuliani, and "moderate" conservatives like McCain! I can't understand why those in the GOP are turning their backs on Romney and turning towards those who values and platforms DO NOT fit in the Conservative movement (again, Giuliani, McCain - and even F. Thompson!)/ Conservatives - WAKE UP! Solidify yourselves and rally around Romney so that we are united better against the Liberals (Clinton, Obama, Edwards, etc.)! And stop the religious hogwash, stereotyping, bigotry, and hypocrasy against Mormons! They are Christian just like Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans, and Methodists! It's another way that the MSM and Liberals are trying to fragment the Conservatives by making us divide against ourselves by not supporting Romney - by using his religion as something to be fearfull of! DO NOT believe them! Support Romney!
Romney leads in New Hampshire and is a close 2d in Iowa, gaining in SC, despite all the MSM garbage. It's only a matter of time. The media attention is exactly what Romney needs. Go Mitt!!
