Why are conservatives so wary of Mitt Romney? Because we’ve seen him in action, and he’s on record. And, as they say, a skunk can’t change it’s stripes. Here’s the telling article from The Hill:
Mitt Romney’s hostile takeover of the right
By Brent Budowsky
For Mitt Romney this is like the good old days at Bain Capital, except this time his takeover involves not another company but the Republican Party. In fact, Romney is seeking a hostile takeover of the conservative movement, methodically moving to take over Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Ron Paul, Rick Santorum and finally Newt Gingrich. Conservatives might remember what Romney did after he took over companies. You did not want to be a worker in a firm Romney took over. He liked layoffs.
I now expect Romney to move fast to the right for a few weeks while he buys stock in the Republican nomination. Once he owns a majority of shares, if he does, that is when he begins to sell his conservative positions, and start buying to his center and his left to get ready for Obama. Goodbye, conservative, hello, moderate, once the time is right for Mitt.
If Romney is elected, and Democrats either keep control of the Senate or win control of the House, Romney will head for Capitol Hill, sit down with Reid and Pelosi, and deal. In fact, even if Democrats lose the Senate but threaten filibusters, which they would, the Romney you will see then will look nothing like the conservative Mitt Romney you see today, and will look more like the moderate to liberal Mitt Romney who was governor.
Who would be the political equivalent of the workers Romney laid off when he took over companies? Of course, conservatives.
Las Vegas oddsmakers should have two betting pools. The first is who wins the election. The second, if Romney wins, is which Romney wins. I will take the weather-vane moderate and the points, haha.
Give Romney credit for this. He is good at what he does. He does takeovers. Workers learned this the hard way when Romney ran Bain. Conservatives will learn the hard way once Romney is nominated, if he is.
There might even be some conservatives who would rather take their chances with Obama for another term, rather than spending four or eight years being laid off by Romney if his takeover succeeds.

Obama Issues Executive Order Mandating “Lifestyle Behavior Modification”
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is fond of saying, “You don’t ever want a crisis to go to waste; it’s an opportunity to do important things that you would otherwise avoid.” Well, the Obama Administration certainly has not let the British Petroleum (BP) Deepwater Horizon oil rig crisis go to waste, using it as a smokescreen to silently assault and further diminish American citizens’ personal freedom.
While the nation has its eyes and ears focused on the blame game ping-pong match between President Obama and BP top brass, President Obama on Thursday, June 10, quietly announced a new Executive Order establishing the “National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council.”
You will “change” to my liking!
Claiming the “authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America,” President Obama has truly gone off the deep end this time in his most atrocious attempt to date to control every aspect of Americans’ lives.
According to the Executive Order that details the President’s “National Prevention and Health Promotion Strategy,” the Council will be charged with carrying out ” lifestyle behavior modification” among American citizens that do not exhibit “healthy behavior.”
The President’s desired lifestyle behavior modifications detailed in Sec. 6 (c) focus on:
- smoking cessation;
- proper nutrition;
- appropriate exercise;
- mental health;
- behavioral health;
- sedentary behavior (see Sec. 3 [c]);
- substance-use disorder; and
- domestic violence screenings.
Making matters even worse, if that is even possible at this point, President Obama will create an “Advisory Group” composed of experts hand-picked from the public health field and various other areas of expertise “outside the Federal Government.”
Let’s consider who the President has sought advice and mentoring from in the past:
- Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who the Anti-Defamation League calls a “Messenger of Intolerance,” and
- Bill Ayers, leader of the 1960′s domestic terrorist group ”Weatherman” that was “responsible for 30 bombings aimed at destroying the defense and security infrastructures of the U.S.”
Now, President Obama is going to seek medical advisors who will be charged with modifying lifestyles and behaviors of those citizens he deems unhealthy? “Paging Dr. Kevorkian! You’re wanted in the White House STAT by President Obama!”
Whether you are a child, a parent, a worker, or retired, the President’s approximately 25-member “Advisory Group” will soon be present in every aspect of Americans’ lives, as the Executive Order prescribes in Sec. 4 (b). Specifically, our new so-called lifestyle behavior modification advisors will be actively carrying out the President’s orders in:
- worksite health promotion;
- community services, including community health centers;
- preventive medicine;
- health coaching;
- public health education;
- geriatrics; and
- rehabilitation medicine.
President Obama’s sweeping plan to enforce “lifestyle behavior modification” is chock full of open-ended target areas, especially when it comes to issues of “mental” and “behavioral” health, “proper nutrition,” “sedentary behavior,” and “appropriate exercise.” The President’s Executive Order is a blatant and forceful attempt to adjust the way Americans young and old think, behave, eat, drink and whatever else free will used to entitle our nation’s citizens to enjoy as prescribed by the Founding Fathers.
If you are feeling stressed-out, sad, confused, hungry, thirsty, bored, or tired, do you honestly trust President Obama and his “Advisory Group” to act in your best interests.
