Conservatives Launch Coalition

The Daily Caller is reporting,  "A group of conservative activists and bloggers, including supporters of others running for the White House, are coming together to form a coalition called to convince voters that the former Massachusetts governor can’t be trusted as a conservative and shouldn’t win the GOP nomination for president in 2012."

"In an interview with The Daily Caller, Ali Akbar, a GOP operative who help found the coalition but isn’t publicly supporting any other candidate yet, said no other campaign is behind the effort to go after the GOP front-runner, though many of those involved in the effort include supporters of other candidates."

One has to wonder if this sort of effort would even happen, if so many of the GOP Establishment pundits and "experts", weren't so quick to dismiss Cain's candidacy and prop up Romney at every chance.  This is a direct "Blowback" to those efforts, in my opinion.

Does anybody really have the slightest idea what Mitt Romney would do as president? Nobody can even reasonably predict where he’ll be on any issue six months from now, much less what he’d do if he became the leader of the free world,” said Hawkins, who runs Right Wing News.

The flip flopping on a multitude of issues is coming back to bite Romney.  You can't be all things, to all people. Not even a politician.  Voters and conservative activists and Tea Partiers, want people who stand for something, primarily a stand against Obama's Big Government policies, which have failed.

The position changes cannot be denied.  From abortion and gay marriage on the social issues side, to taxes and Romney Care on the economic side, the record is there.  Republican activists and bloggers would probably not be so aggressive if it weren't for the failure of the same GOP pundits who are attacking Cain - to mention the Romney weaknesses on these and other issues.
