Test Drive the 1994 and 2007 Romney
Take a close look at the 1994 model of the rugged but elegant Romney. If you see past the smooth, polished exterior, you will find it quite different, indeed almost indistinguishable, from the 2007 Romney. Sure, tastes and styles change over time, but THIS much?
For instance, the 2007 Romney only turns Right. The 1994 seemed to drift more to the Left. In fact, in this YouTube video highlighted January 10 by the New York Sun's Daniel Freedman, you can watch the 1994 Romney nearly run over Ronald Reagan. Talk about poor handling!
Thanks to a letter to the Log Cabin Republicans, the gay-friendly 1994 Romney recently collided head-on with the gay-hostile 2007 Romney. Ouch!
All in all, the 2007 Romney seems like a rather unreliable vehicle for reaching conservative destinations.
GOP primary voters would be wise to test drive the 1994 Romney before buying the 2007 Romney or even a 2008 model, if there is one.-Deroy Murdock
