Romney Still Trying to Prove He's Conservative

Glen Johnson: "Romney's 2008 presidential campaign was undermined not by weakness in his deep and stellar resume; rather, it was damaged by doubts about the authenticity of a rightward shift -- particularly in his social views -- during the run-up to his first White House bid. In branding himself 'severely conservative' four years later, Romney added fresh currency to the seemingly never-ending doubts about his philosophical core, or whether there is anything he won't say as he tries to win his party's presidential nomination."

"It's telling that immediately after Romney made his comment, his campaign had to issue a press release outlining proof of his fiscal and social conservatism."
