Mitt Is a Policy Eunuch

“I’ve always taken it as a given that the ‘real’ Mitt Romney isn’t so much a political moderate as not particularly engaged on issues besides management and right-leaning economics.  In other words, he’s a center-right technocrat. So the moves to the center we’re about to see are comparatively easy for him since these just aren’t issues which are core to who he is one way or another.”  Emphasis added.   Josh Marshall, Talking Points Memo

This is my view of Mitt — not so much that he’s a flip-flopper as that he’s apathetic on stuff like abortion, gay marriage, gun rights, climate change, immigration, etc.

I think that’s why the base is so suspicious of him.  Issues that they are passionate about, that they devote their time and money to, that they believe are central and crucial to the future of this country, really don’t matter to him, just six of one, half dozen of another.

The GOP is nominating someone who is basically a policy eunuch.  You can’t really get him aroused.
