Peter Beinart: Mitt Romney Will Be A Conservative President

The conventional wisdom may say that the Tea Party can't in its right mind embrace Mitt Romney, but Daily Beast columnist Peter Beinart says conservative true believers have nothing to fear. “It doesn’t matter all that much what Romney really believes, or whether he believes much of anything. Romney will be a very conservative president because that’s the only kind of president a Republican can be these days.” Without him doing a thing, Romney's administration would be filled with anti-regulation zealots and apologists for corporate interests. “The decisions a presidential administration makes flow from the character of the party itself. And in today’s GOP, that character is very, very conservative.”
