Mitt Romney’s new ad says that too many Republicans "act like Democrats". Quotes:

When Republicans act like Democrats, America loses.

It is time for Republicans to start acting like Republicans.

Of course, this is the same guy who said:

My R doesn’t so much stand for Republican as Reform

Jonathan Martin asked recently why people dislike Romney so much. For me it is not so much that he is dishonest, venal, and hypocritical. I am a political professional. I deal with politicians all the time, and I am used to that. But he is so brazen. I am pretty cynical, but he is too much even for me.

After all, this is the guy who has flip-flopped on abortion, gay-rights, taxes, guns, embryonic stem-cell research, Ronald Reagan, the Contract with America, his draft-dodging, education, immigration, and campaign finance-reform. And now he is lecturing people on being Republican enough?

Hot Air » Blog Archive » Video: Mitt’s nifty new GOP-bashing ad · September 19, 2007 at 1:03 PM

[…] “GOP-scolding” would be more accurate but that doesn’t quite sing. I’m with Geraghty: I dig it, notwithstanding Soren Dayton’s point that Mitt’s in no position to be telling anyone what “real” Republicans should believe. True enough but beside the point: the ad’s really about good government and effective management, both of which conservatives are hungry for and both of which Mitt’s well positioned to push, partly based on his record and partly on his reputation as a guy so squeaky clean that he won’t even use foul language. Rudy’s too socially liberal to get away with an ad like this, Fred has too much lobbyist baggage, and McCain’s too much of an amnesty shill. If any one of the big four’s going to do it, and it needs to be done, it’s Mitt. […]

[…] Some like it but some see it as GOP bashing.  If the party wants to regain credibility it needs to demonstrate that it can police itself.  Otherwise, the party’s unwillingness will lead to more elections like last year.  And deservedly so. […]

[…] Dayton also seems to like calling Mitt Romney a liar. He did it in posts here, here, and here. That came after he accused Romney of “childish personal attacks” and called him “dishonest, venal, and hypocritical” as well as “so brazen”. He was also quite willing to call Matt Drudge a Romney “shill” without any actual evidence. […]
