A nice article on Gov. Romney was published in Bloomberg yesterday. The author, Heidi Przybyla, outlines why so many conservatives (evangelical and other) are turning to Gov. Romney as the best candidate for the GOP. The article acknowledges some of Romney’s “roadblocks” – his changing position on abortion, his religion – but includes this bit of wisdom as a response:
“You can disarm your enemies by being very forthright,” said George Landrith, a Mormon bishop and former Virginia congressional candidate. “They will look petty and small if they keep hammering” on the topic.
I think that speaks volumes about Gov. Romney. Yes, he was wrong about abortion a few years ago. Yes, his religion is not the same as ours. But he is open and honest about these things – a rare quality in a politician.
