The other Romney

Is anyone listening to those robocalls us Michiganders are being subjected to in anticipation of the primary on Tuesday, February 28th?

Here is something else to contemplate from the the Washington Post, February 10, 2012, by Jacob Hacker and Paul Pierson:
"Responding to Goldwater’s dictum that 'extremism in defense of liberty is no vice,' [George, not Mitt] Romney countered that 'dogmatic ideological parties tend to splinter the political and social fabric of a nation, lead to governmental crises and deadlocks, and stymie the compromises so often necessary to preserve freedom and achieve progress.'"

George Romney was the Governor of Michigan from 1963 to 1969.
