A Mormon in the White House?

So, let me see if I have this right. In order to win the GOP presidential nomination, a candidate must move to the LEFT during the primaries by supporting an individual health care mandate, believing in the idea of man-made global warming, and ethanol subsidies? (I'm sure I've missed some.) And that makes the candidate a "true conservative"? (It's just "saying what every serious GOP contender will have to say . . .")

I guess if you have a history of flip-flopping and creating doubt about your conservative street cred, moving to the left is the only path open to you.

A Mormon in the White House? I don't think so.

THE ELDER CHIDES: You clearly haven't been paying attention to Hugh Hewitt lately James. To even raise the issue of Romneycare is to fall into one of the mainstream media memes about the battle for the GOP presidential nomination. And it also demonstrates that you must hate the Constitution. You need to stop asking pesky questions about Romney's past policies (and his refusal to back away from them today), circle the wagons, and get on the team. Anything else is being disloyal to the Republican Party and calls your patriotism and love of America into question as well.

JAMES REJOINS: Apparently, Ed Morrissey hasn't been paying attention to Hugh either. And he hates the Constitution. And Kittens. But mostly the Constitution.
