The knock on Romney is that he’s a fake conservative, and has to try really hard to pretend to be one.
But now that he’s obviously in the driver’s seat in the race for the GOP nomination, Romney and his people are just screwing with Republicans for the fun of it.
Ann Coulter, a big Romney supporter, actually put up a column last night titled: THREE CHEERS FOR ROMNEYCARE!
Seriously! She basically mocks conservatives for being hypocrites, and for not admitting that healthcare under the old system used to be bad.
Now Mitt Romney—fresh off of touting the safety net as the answer for America’s poor—is talking about aggressively and regularly hiking the minimum wage.
Our only conclusion: Mitt Romney knows he can troll Republicans and screw with them, and they’re stuck with him.
