    That's not entirely true. There is a large percentage of Conservatives who dislike him cause he's not one of them on any social issue and if he is, he certainly didn't act like a Conservative during his tenure in Massachusetts. While he did this out of "necessity" is irrelevant, Romney simply didn't act conservatively for many on the right.

    mainly the grand inquisitor types from what I have seen

    on economics he is more conservative than Santorum (social fascist, fiscal socialist) or Newt (big government, big bucks from government)

    How would you measure "more conservative"? Would you call RomneyCare conservative? What about his earmarks? Were they "conservative"? I'm sure just a browse down Romney's career in Massachusetts would show he's not all that different from the other guys running for the GOP.

    He's a corporate friendly centrist like Obama, who will basically say anything to get elected(like Obama).

    Of course he does not do this. The guy is RICH for heavens sake. He represents the selfishness of entitlement who feels that the nation exists to help him stay rich. Like so many of his selfishness brethren, they would screw the nation and its people just to beneift themselves. And the last decade is proof of it.

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.
    Oh my. All this discussion about who Romney is. Romney is a Mormon. This explains his behavior. You are all talking about stuff that doesn't apply to Romney roots and therefore is inaccurate.

    Talk like this is what makes so many hate politicians. It isn't enough to say the other guy is wrong, people like you have to say they would hurt the nation to benefit themselves. So in effect, what some would call traitors.

    Nothing seems low enough in political discourse today. My sense is that this falls to partisans who feel they do not have an argument to lift themselves up, so their method of moving up the ladder of success is to pull their opponents down.

    People need to call out the scoundrals, as I am now doing. Perhaps then we can get back to a true debate of ideas.

    He's neither a liberal, nor a conservative. He's a two-faced lying corporatist who's only interested in money and power. He's no better for America than Obama is.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
