Sahil Kapur at the New Republic has a post about conservative attempts to derail Mitt Romney's presidential campaign. It is curious that it is not only social conservatives who are suspicious of Romney's conversion to a pro-life stance, but the laissez-faire dogmatists who are attacking Romney. This is the essential problem he faces: A GOP primary electorate that is all wigged up will have a hard time getting enthusiastic about a man whose entire demeanor, to say nothing of his record, bespeaks a more moderate, centrist approach to governance.
