Romney Is a Liberal… (“And even worse than you think, says Paul Gottfried.”)

For once in a blue moon, I find myself agreeing with Dana Milbank of the Washington Post (October 18) when he observes that “conservatives are mum about Mitt’s moderation.” Making allowances for Milbank’s ideologically colored view, when he says that in recent weeks the Republican presidential candidate “sprinted toward the center,” this columnist is correct on two points.

One, Romney has abandoned just about every “conservative” social position he took during the primaries; and two, “conservative” commentators and GOP regulars don’t seem to mind. They’re too busy celebrating Romney’s ascent in presidential polls, or else complaining that Romney hasn’t savaged Obama’s foreign policy furiously enough.

GOP media celebrities may be receiving their worldview as well as money from neoconservative fat cat Rupert Murdoch, who is an ardent American interventionist.

They seem to be oblivious to the fact that most Americans are not complaining about Obama’s insufficient aggressiveness in international relations.

How many women voters or even old-time conservatives, like me, do Republican mediacrats think they’ll attract by continuing to scream about Benghazi or, as Ryan did in his debate with Biden, gripe that our president didn’t get tough enough with Putin over Syria? Contrary to something else Ryan suggested in his debate with Biden, it’s not at all clear that the anti-government side in Syria is any more freedom-loving than those Alawi Muslims who are now in power and whom the Russian government backs.

Are we really eager to jump into another Near Eastern quagmire, particularly while we’re still involved in the occupation of two Muslim countries? And allow me to express (for a person of the Right) two other heretical ideas: I’m not sure whether Obama is more to blame for what happened in Benghazi with the attack on our embassy than was George W. Bush for 9/11. Although Obama and his staff misrepresented the facts afterwards, I can’t figure out how they were responsible for the terrorist attack itself. I’m also not sure what Romney intends to do to stop Iran from developing a nuclear device. Will he join the Israelis in launching an attack on that country? I doubt his foreign policy advisors would hold back President Romney if he decided on this course.

Such warlike positions may drive away far more voters than Romney’s adherence to whatever social positions he took as a primary candidate. In the primaries and once or twice since, he’s claimed to be pro-life but when Obama stated during the debate that Romney does not support Planned Parenthood, Romney predictably tried to weasel out of the charge. What he should have answered is that he heartily endorses all the other activities provided by Planned Parenthood, but wishes this organization would restrict its activities to those endeavors and not facilitate abortions. But being a consummate opportunist, Romney wouldn’t take this straightforward position. Perhaps it’s because it’s not the one that he’s consistently held throughout his political career.

When Obama accused his opponent of supporting those tough measures introduced in Arizona under Governor Jan Brewer against illegal immigration, Romney again switched colors. Although he had enthusiastically backed this law and although, as Obama correctly pointed out, had put the person who wrote it on his advisory staff, in the second debate, Romney tried to align his position with Obama’s. Here too he was clearly equivocating in order to reach out to potential Democratic voters.

And I found even more egregious his answer as to whether he supports legislation enacted by Obama………

EXCERPT!!!!!
