Romney’s CPAC Return Draws Interest, Questions | RealClearPolitics

And Romney’s appearance at this year’s event has left some of the event’s participants scratching their heads. “I think a lot of people are confused by what he hopes to accomplish,” said one scheduled CPAC speaker, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It’s pretty clear that he doesn’t want to take a formal role as a candidate in the future, and he had never previously been a thought leader on conservative issues.”

I think what he hopes to accomplish is to find some way to help Karl Rove destroy the conservative movement within the Republican party. I suspect that Romney (rightfully) blames conservative disdain for him, personally, for his inability to defeat Barack Obama.

I didn’t like Romney, although I did vote for him. Many conservatives did not. Romney is like most scorned politicians – hell hath no fury, etc.

Frankly, I’m not even sure why CPAC is letting him speak. What are they? Suicidally stupid or something?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Rove doesn’t have to do anything to destroy the party given the strong grass roots “libertarians out of the party” movement.

    Now I grant you he may be going about it wrong (not a pull together message) but he may in fact be responding to what is already in progress.

    BTW I don’t like the “conservative ” label. Call me a “fiscal conservative” because socially I’m pretty liberal. If we don’t get our terms correct we will not properly diagnose the problem.

  2. Well, M., if you don’t like conservative, you don’t have to call yourself one.

    I call myself a libertarian conservative, especially to distinguish myself from assholes like that leftarded TV comic, whose only “libertarian” concerns are fucking and dope – and beyond that, the government should rape you at every whim.
