GOP abuzz over Mitt Romney’s liberal lexicon on poverty, foreign policy

Mitt Romney’s opening pitch for a third shot at the White House left many Republicans scratching their heads, in part because his plans to fight poverty and tyranny seemed to borrow the lexicon of liberals like FDR, LBJ and Woodrow Wilson.

With a full house of Republican National Committee members listening aboard the USS Midway in San Diego, Mr. Romney implored his party last week “to lift people out of poverty” and “to make the world safe.”

The first phrase is a favorite of liberals who gush over Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal and Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society programs that put the government at the forefront of fighting poverty. The latter phrase was a tenet of Wilson’s foreign policy doctrine, cemented in part by his 1917 speech declaring war on Germany.

    I have been trying to tell the WORLD that Mitt Romney is NOT a conservative Republican.!!! I guess the world is not ready to hear me scream again that Jeb Bush is NOT a conservative Republican, either…WAKE UP, PEOPLE!!!

      No, but he was a successful governor of a Northern state. He presided over a positive economy and worked for the prosperity and health of his constituents. That’s probably not good enough for “conservative” Republicans, but it’s a good way to get elected.
