Then came one action called RomneyCare.
“U.S. Senator from Massachusetts Edward M. Kennedy, who had made universal heath coverage his life’s work, gave Romney’s plan a positive reception, which encouraged Democratic legislators to work with it. The effort eventually gained the support of all major stakeholders within the state, and Romney helped break a logjam between rival Democratic leaders in the legislature.”
The Romney problem is he doesn’t understand the mathematically progressive nature of his compromises with Progressives. For example: If he compromises half way with Progressives in his first year, he’s half way to their goal. In his second year, he compromises half way again and now he’s ¾ way to their goal. In his third year he compromises half way with Progressives and he’s ⅞ way to their goal. In his fourth year, he’s 15/16 towards their goal.
But Romney needn’t go half way, he could compromise by going only 20% of the way each year, with the result: year 1- 20%; year 2- 36%; year 3- 48.8%; year 4- 59.0% towards their goal.
Quickly, the Progressives easily see that they can get all they want by just doubling their demands.
The Romney or RINO dilemma is that they want to serve two masters, the Conservatives and the Liberal media. From
No one can serve two masters, for either he
will hate the one and love the other; or else
he will be devoted to one and despise the
other. You can’t serve both God and Mammon.
— Matthew 6:24
So a RINO or a Romney, who craves the flattery of media praise, begins to despise the plain conservatives who chose him as their servant.
Can a picture lose a million votes? How can Captain Romney assure the Conservatives that he’ll not pilot their ship on the rocks, lured in by the media Sirens?
