For those worried - and I'm not one of them - that Mitt Romney isn't conservative enough to win in November, or won't be a conservative president, listen to his off-the-cuff response to a woman in the crowd at an Illinois event yesterday.
While taking questions from the crowd, Romney was asked by a woman (who undoubtedly thought she was being clever) “You’re all for like ‘Yay freedom and all this stuff and yay pursuit of happiness.’ You know what would make me happy? Free birth control."
Without ridiculing her or belittling her question (unlike the boorish, condescending behavior the President demonstrates towards those who disagree with him) Romney gives her an answer that is practically a clarion call for individual liberty and limited government:
"Let me tell you something, if you're looking for free stuff that you don't have to pay for, vote for the other guy," he said. "That's what he's all about. Politicians get up and promise you all kinds of free stuff, more and more stuff that you won't have to pay for and you know what? We get elected that way, in many cases, politicians do, that's not something I subscribe to....The idea that of borrowing a trillion dollars more than we bring in is not just bad economics, its immoral."
Don't worry, my moderate friends, this will be a conservative president. Video is below:
