Eliot Spitzer warns Romney that Ryan will spell electoral defeat
Eliot Spitzer warned Mitt Romney, the ‘”Etch-A-Sketch candidate” on Monday that ”Voters are nowhere near as radical as Paul Ryan” that his “policies would be a disaster for the nation and will spell electoral defeat for Romney once they are understood”.
“Ryan is an arch-conservative on social issues and a supply-sider on economic issues. He is not the social moderate–fiscal conservative who might have appealed to the general public. The swing voters in the swing states will soon discover that the new Romney Republican Party has veered to the right — indeed to the fringes — and is now irrelevant to the mainstream.
Just consider these positions on social issues:
• Rabidly against abortion rights, believing life begins the moment a fetus is conceived and that there is no right to abortion, even in cases of rape and incest. • Against extension of same-sex marriage rights of any type. • He toes the NRA line on all Second Amendment gun issues.”
