  •  I think Romney is a "standard Republican" (5+ / 0-)

    in the sense that his heart is really with the business community, while he's willing to throw red meat to the Goldwater constituencies - cranky individualists, moral conservatives, racists and nativists - as needed. That's how Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes won 7 presidential elections in 40 years.
    The problem for the GOP today is that this model is not clearly viable any more. The "crankies" don't want to nominate another "suit," they want one of their own. And the "suits" have reason to fear that doing so will throw the party back to where it was in '64.
