Toward Romney, which is a necessary evil at this point. He’s not all the way there yet, but he will be soon. Watch this space:
In Massachusetts, [Mitt Romney] undeniably championed abortion, gay rights, global warming, gun control, big government statist mandated/socialized health care programs, liberal judges, TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending, debt limit increases, etc, and even though he’s recently claimed a complete reversal in political beliefs and no longer despises pro-life conservatives or the time of Reagan-Bush, I still don’t trust him. He still stubbornly holds on to some of his statist beliefs, like global warming, gays in the military, RomneyCare, stimulus spending, etc, so there is no way I can vote for him or join Cain, Perry, Bachmann, Newt or any others who are endorsing him. But I will not act on my prior promises that I would actively campaign against him if he wins the nomination. Our combined movement is already torn and splintered and is going to have to be mended if we’re going to have any impact whatsoever against the liberal/progressives and statists after the election. To that end I propose a TRUCE among our conservative forces during the remainder of this election cycle.
only a fool (like John Boehner) would admit it
how that hurts to admit

I respect those who are still die-hard for beating Romney, but that is yesterday’s fight. The danger is not in seeming inconsistent–trust me; we left marks all over that Romney fellow, and he will not forget us. Maybe next time we will unseat him like we are about to do to Lugar, and a number of other RINOs. And this is the fight for today: punish RINOs in the House and especially Lugar in the Senate. Tomorrow’s fight is back to the White House to get Obama out of my chair.

Good luck, Jim. Good job. I support you one hundred percent.
Finally, a note about my phrase “making the turn”. When maneuvering a formation of ships, there is a method to turn a line abreast sailing one direction to sail another direction without having to have some ships slow and some speed up, an agony and a hazard. Instead, the ship furthest from the new direction ducks behind the rest, and as the sail on their original course, he hits the new course, and opens up room behind the withdrawing remaining ships. When there is room to go, the next furthest ship turns behind the remainder. And Voila! he rolls out of his turn just abreast of the first ship.
self-organizing the movements of individuals
Well what else would you have people do?
