Romney called himself a perfect 10, according to Brendan Farrington:

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney placed himself alongside President Reagan as the perfect conservative during a campaign event Monday.

While answering questions at a luncheon, Romney was asked where he would rate himself as a conservative on a scale of 1 to 10 if Reagan was a 10.

"Probably a 10 as well," the former Massachusetts governor said. "I’m trying to think in what places we would differ. As I’ve gotten older, Reagan keeps getting smarter and smarter."

Remember what he said about Reagan in 1994? He wasn’t for Reagan-Bush…

(Insert sarcasm) Duh, Soren. In the youtube debate Romney is clearly demonstrating he was an independant because Massachusetts has open primaries.

Stephanopoulos: Let me talk about your political journey. You were an Independent, registered Independent in the 1980s.

You voted for Paul Tsongas, a Democrat, in the 1992 primaries. Now you describe yourself as a Reagan…

Mitt Romney: Kind of a mischaracterization. In Massachusetts, if you register as an Independent, you can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary.

When there was no real contest in the Republican primary, I’d vote in the Democrat primary, vote for the person who I thought would be the weakest opponent for Republican.

In the general election…
