Most folks just haven't figured it out yet why wealthy Republicans want the Religious Right to Gamble on Romney and overlook stellar prolifers for Flip Flop. Two Words: Flat Tax.
The 2008 Race couldn't be any better example of how the wealthy take a candidate who'll protect their money on the backs of middle income and poor, and give him advice on what to say in the public square to get the religious right to vote for him.
The rich country club Republicans have poured their money into Romney and given him an extreme makeover -- and now the money people need to get the religious right on board their bus or the democrats are going to win the election and storm their cash reserves.
Here's the new boss, same as the old boss.
The problem, of course, comes when Brownback insinuates Gov. Romney’s pro-life positions aren’t authentic simply because he’s changed over the years. ~Nancy French, Evangelicals for Mitt
I needn't remind you, need I, that the Frenches are the Evangelical Gadflies that had no credible substantive arguments to reply to the evidence being produced that challenges Romney's newly found retroactive crusader for the culture of life -- and responded with an Evangelical ad hominem that blew the lid off of Romney's Newbury Street hairdo to reveal the malice against parents in Massachusetts who have been on the ground protecting children from Romney's initiatives and programs.
One of the questions Romneyites need to be able to answer is this: on the issues that matter deeply to them, why should social conservatives gamble on Romney when they know they have a reliable representative in Brownback?
Because they are foolish enough to think we don't recognize the difference between a candidate who has been available and supportive for 10 years and one that shut the door in our faces, attacked us, put programs in place to recruit kids into promiscuity, Catholics into handing out abortifacients in spite of the laws that protect us, knows every stem cell in biolabs is 'extra' and he is therefore pro stem cell use, knows the laws of Massachusetts still prohibit granting a marriage license to anybody but one man and one woman, and the accumulating lies won't ever be exposed when the real run for the White House begins and mainstream voters have to examine the facts of record?
The only people paying attention to what is going on for the race of 2008 now fall into three categories.
They have money they want to protect.
They want sinful sexuality and killing to be enthroned as virtues.
They are holding to the principles of God's sovereignty regardless of the pagans dancing at the base of the mountain.
The wealthy Republicans have no concept of the religious revolution brewing under the surface for the past two years. They are too blind to see the writing on the wall.
