Mitt Romney the Republican “establishment” candidate?by Dee Dee Garcia Blase on Nov. 18, 2011, under Hispanic Latino Vote, National tequila party movement
It looks like the Republican Party continues to make serious mistakes in choosing Mitt Romney as their establishment guy.
You’ve got the Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh talking heads promoting Tea Party extremists like Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann. It’s genius if you can’t see through it. Meanwhile Presidential 2012 Candidate, Mitt Romney, attacks Rick Perry on immigration as he ignores his own dismal record. Romney is like Gordon Gecko on the Wall Street movie because he has a record of slashing jobs to increase his profit margins.
How can Republicans and the Tea Party complain about “ObamaCare” when Mitt Romney passed RomneyCare? Their whole approach is extremely hypocritical, and we will not forget Mitt Romney’s dastardly deeds — particularly when he made Joe Arpaio his state Chair of Arizona when he ran against Senator John McCain.
Here is how we know/sense that Mitt Romney is the ‘establishment guy’.
Mitt Romney quietly solidifying support in Iowa

As Republican presidential candidates rise, fumble and fall in popularity in the race for the 2012 nomination, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney quietly continues to build a loyal, formidable network of supporters in Iowa, strategists say.Romney’s team plays down its effort in the state where the first caucus takes place Jan. 3, insisting his campaign is lean, efficient and reliant on volunteers. Yet, seasoned Iowa Republicans say it would be a mistake to overlook the low-key presence Romney built while few people were watching him…….
Romney likely is taking an “Aw, shucks, we aren’t doing much in Iowa” tact so that if he wins, political reporters will call it a surprise — and if he loses, no one will consider it a big deal because he set low expectations, said John Brabender, a Mt. Washington-based political strategist who is senior adviser to former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum.
“It is a relatively smart strategy,” he said.
And let’s not forget extremist Tea Party Republican, Ann Coulter, who endorsed Mitt Romney.
Coulter Gives Up, Endorses Mitt Romney: ‘You’ve Got To Go With What You Have’by Frances Martel | 3:12 pm, October 15th, 2011
Ann Coulter is holding her nose and voting for Mitt Romney. After spending several months of the primary warning that Romney was a loser who would mean certain defeat for the Republicans, Coulter announced her support for a Romney/Cain 2012 ticket on Hannity last night, noting that Romney had been “magnificent” in debates and “you’ve got to go with what you have,” but sounding far more enthusiastic about a Chris Christie 2020 campaign.With Christie a certain “no” now (and always, but don’t tell the media they wasted the past two months on a non-story), it seems the logical conclusion that Coulter would endorse whoever the New Jersey governor did. The problem with that, however, is that Christie endorsed a candidate Coulter argued would be a surefire loser back in February. That said, when asked who she was supporting in this race, Coulter told Sean Hannity she was “Romney/Cain 2012… with Christie in 2020.” Coulter refrained endorsing Herman Cain for the top of the ticket, she noted, because “he has never held elected office before, and I really want to defeat Obama.”
How will the Tea Party extremist talking headsd like Rush and Hannity come around to support Romney?Easy….just pull out the archives like below. Keep in mind, these conservative talk show hosts have already flip-flopped. Make no mistake, they will flop back over to support Romney again if Romney wins the 2012 GOP Primaries.
Rush Limbaugh *endorses Mitt Romney

Levin, Hannity, Ingraham and now Nobel nominee Rush Limbaugh (membership req’d): Big talk radio swings unanimously for Mitt Romney. Rush makes several solid points that you’ve heard before, mostly regarding how McCain represents the GOP’s national security wing, Huckabee represents its social conservative wing, and Ron Paul represents the economic conservative wing, but Romney is the one candidate who represents all three by himself. Romney is a late convert to all three, which as I wrote the other day explains why conservatives have taken so long to warm up to him.Read more: http://hotair.com/archives/2008/02/05/rush-limbaugh-endorses-mitt-romney/
