    Re: Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?

    Romney is a Mormon. Progressive, liberal, conservative, etc. don't apply in the sense of a root philosophy to Romney. He essentially has a leadership position in the Mormon church. This is why most have trouble attempting to figure out if Romney is a liberal or conservative, he is neither. I voted No. But if the question is: Is Mitt Romney a liberal I'd vote No. The poll is demonstrates to me that Romney is not understood by most. But he is understood by Mormons.

    Exactly. You got him pegged. And it is for those reasons that he could be one of the most dangerous presidents we have ever had. He would be a toady and sycophant for the far right and the water boy for corporate America. You would have to go back to Warren Harding to find a weaker person who would be controlled by evil around him.

    If the GOP takes the Senate, we can expect an all out effort to repeal most of the political progress of the 20th century. We will then see how much true backbone Senate Democrats have in using the rules to stop such nonsense.

    I honestly believe the real Mitt Romney is more liberal than Obama on a lot of issues.

    Speaking to people who have actually known him, he is pragmatic to a fault. He isn't ideological. He takes up whatever views he needs to win. Romney is a moderate, not a liberal, but that gives him the ability to sway one way or the other when he needs to in order to get the votes. He was the perfect choice to go against Obama because he is cut from the same cloth.

    Re: Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?

    As I see it, Mitt Romney is a strong conservative in one area: tax policy for the wealthy, limited regulation on industry and generally favorable treatment for the wealthy to maximize their wealth building potential. Most other issues, he seems willing to pander, "evolve", bend and adjust as necessary in order to maximize voter support.

    Which means he's not a Conservative at all. Being Liberal on even one issue makes you a Liberal in whole.

    Maybe for you folks who have no Principles or Standards; but for those of us who do it's totally true.
