Social conservatives like Reverend Lou Sheldon and Bob Jones III, and pro-life leaders and attorneys Jim Bopp, Jr. and Jay Sekulow and others have been supporting Governor Romney for quite some time.
That's simply because Romney is the Bushbot in this election. Many people in the Christian right sold out to the neocons back in the late 70's, when they were recuited by the military industrial complex as foot soldiers to help get Reagan elected. While that unholy marriage has fractured somewhat lately, there are still many in the fundamentalist fanatic community who remain loyal to their neocon masters.
Romney is giving Bush some love
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- President Bush hasn’t been getting a great deal of love on the campaign trail in recent months and years, even from Republicans, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) gave him some on the eve of Iowa’s first-in-the nation caucuses.
He even used the L-word – “love.”
“We’re a nation united that stands behind our fighting men and women. We honor them and respect them,” Romney said at a conference center here. “We love what they’ve done for us, and we also love a president who has kept us safe these last six years.”
