Here’s a fun little video of a younger Mitt saying he’s not trying to return to the Reagan/Bush era, as he was an independent at that time:
Here’s Mitt from tonight:
[W]e’re in the house that Reagan built. It’s important that we, as Republicans, stay in the house that Reagan built. If we want to take the White House again, social, economic and foreign policy conservatives have to come together.
. . . .
I would be with Ronald Reagan. And this party, it has a choice, what the heart and soul of this party is going to be, and it’s going to have to be in the house that Ronald Reagan built.
Now watch the video again.
It’s short, and perhaps it’s ripped out of context. It’s hard to imagine how context could help much — but you never know.
UPDATE: The same YouTube poster has an effective little video showing Mitt supporting a woman’s right to choose — time and time and time again:
How excited are Republicans about their candidates? This excited!
