Promoted from the diaries as a public service on behalf of conservative voters. For those who don't know it, the author of this post is a self-described member of the Romney campaign.
Updated: Hey guys - this is Justin Hart. To be clear I am not a member of the Romney campaign nor am I paid by the Romney campaign. I welcome users of RedState.com to expand their understanding of the irony, comedy and satire in the picture below :)
While I have the attention of the front page I will ask:
- Romney has held consistent conservative values for years now. I would hope we welcome solid converts to the movement, right?
- Romney was endorsed by numerous editors here at RedState in 2008, and hasn't taken a vote since then...what has changed since that time?
- Romney has a laudable and robust conservative fiscal plan and has promised to repeal Obamacare. Is that insufficient for you?
- He's articulate, holds his own in debates and has the ability to win over moderates and even liberals who are disillusioned with Obama. That's a good thing right?
Lastly, if not Romney... then who? There are 7 weeks to go.
Update 2: Since I'm still here on the front page I might as grab your ear for a minute more. I have a confession to make: I am a Newt Gingrich convert to conservatism. I remember in 1994 listening to Newt's fantastic lectures on U.S. government from the University of Georgia broadcast over C-SPAN. These are the same lectures the Democrats used to push trumped up charges. Newt was later acquitted but not before the damage was done... and by damage I mean thousands of converts to Conservatism like myself.
I like Newt. I think he's an articulate candidate who can debate anyone. My qualm is with the #notmitt crowd. I want them to stake a claim and support a candidate rather than the constant haranguing about the trust issues they have with Romney.
The supposed pain induced by the pic below was meant to stir discussion. It did just that.
Hey Justin, I understand your angst at being caught at this but your LinkedIn profile states otherwise.
Co-Chair, Faith and Values Committee
Romney for President, Inc.
Privately Held; 51-200 employees; Political Organization industry
2007 – Present (4 years)
Is this untrue? A yes or no will suffice.
Justin here again. It is not true. The line item you refer to was from the 2008 campaign and I just never put an end date to it. I rarely use LinkedIn but I'll go ahead and make sure I make that change. Thanks for pointing that out and giving me this forum!
