There he goes again (II)

Is this the flip, the flop or a reverse flip?

Myth Romney is now looking for Tea Party support in New Hampshire, thanks to the meteoric path of the latest right-wing darling Rick Perry. The candidate who has kept his distance from the extreme right is worried that Perry was made significant inroads.

Such is the nature of political campaigns. But what kind of reception is he likely to receive?

Return with me know to the days of yesteryear, or at least March, for a look at the attitude of the Tea Party toward their erstwhile Winnipesaukee neighbor:
“Right now, it’s ABR — Anyone But Romney,” said Kevin McHugh, 38, a Salem Tea Party activist who just started the Facebook page “Mitt Romney and His Record,” which enumerates his flip-flops on health-care reform, taxes and abortion. “He’s got a lot of work to do.”
How's he done so far?
“It’s preposterous,’’ said Brendan Steinhauser, director of federal and state campaigns for FreedomWorks. “Mitt Romney is not and never has been a Tea Partier. He’s just a charlatan. This movement’s been going on since the fall of 2008, and he’s never attended a Tea Party rally. He’s never reached out to the movement before.’’
Lots of labor for Our Man Myth this holiday weekend.
