Jimmy Carter Wouldn’t Mind Mitt Romney in the White House
Former President of the United States Jimmy Carter told MSNBC: “I’d rather have a Democrat but I would be comfortable – I think Romney has shown in the past, in his previous years as a moderate or progressive, that he was fairly competent as a governor and also running the Olympics. He’s gone to the extreme right-wing positions on some very important issues in order to get the nomination. What he’ll do in the general election, what he’ll do as president, I think is different.”
Ron Paul Wins Washington, Too?

Now it appears he’s got the votes in Washington state to flip those results at the upcoming state convention as well.

Titled He’s Just Not That Into You, I predict Mitt Romney will never reach out to conservatives because the Republican Party establishment wants to prove it doesn’t need us.
