In today’s Washington Examiner, Mona Charen tackles who the real conservative is in the race for the GOP’s presidential nomination. Her answer is interesting: it’s Mitt Romney.
Charen’s argument, and it ends on this rather clever bit of analysis:
So he’s for a free market reform of health care, cutting spending, tackling the soaring debt, reducing taxes, simplifying the code, eliminating regulations, drilling for domestic energy, appointing conservative judges, and keeping our military the strongest on Earth. And Romney has not attacked his competitors from the left but from the right because that’s where they, far more than he, are vulnerable.
