Is Mitt Romney conservative or moderate?

Posted by: discomfiting

I personally don't feel he's very conservative since he opposes gun rights and free trade while supporting things like affirmative action, government regulation, and saying things like the GOP should be more open to homosexuals.

  • No No! He's a true conservative!

  • He really isn't that conservative..!

If he didn't try pulling the super conservative fake romney ideology, he would've had a better chance at winning

I agree. He should've stayed moderate in 2012. He probably would've won.

I agree with you discomfitting. We all saw his economic stances. I would say he was a liberal economist, but he had to play the fake ultra conservative. He wasn't going to steal voters from Obama, and he can't isolate the rest of the conservatives. Right wing whack jobs.

That's not true at all. Playing moderate NEVER works in a presidential election. He wouldn't have stolen anyone from Obama and the far right would not have backed him. Notice how politicians always align themselves to the extremes as elections approach. It's a strategy proven to work.

Dmussi, that's what I just said
texans14 says2014-07-25T22:48:41.0375882-05:00
And he wouldn't have been playing moderate. He is moderate.
dmussi12 says2014-07-25T22:51:05.4597281-05:00
Then why did you say you agree with discomfiting?
ChosenWolff says2014-07-25T22:52:07.1557506-05:00
I contradicted myself. I disagree with him.

Playing moderate worked for Chris Christie.

Yeah, New York is extremely liberal. Obviously it will work there. On the national scale, however, the nation is more evenly split.

@ChosenWolff Sorry about that. I just kind of glanced at your comment w/o reading it.
discomfiting says2014-07-26T10:01:37.6532304-05:00
NY has nothing to do with Christie
dmussi12 says2014-07-26T12:04:39.3904778-05:00
Meant New Jersey. Same concept

Romney is economically liberal, and socially conservative.
