Doesn't This Answer Lose The Conservatives For Romney?

Williams: What have you done to further the cause of conservatism as a Republican leader?

Romney:Well, number one, I've raised a family. With my wife we've raised five wonderful sons and have sixteen wonderful grandkids. Number two, I've worked in the private sector. The idea that somehow everything important for conservatism or for America happens in government is simply wrong.

1. Raising children/grandchildren qualifies as "furthering the cause of conservativism?"

Wow. I guess almost all of us would qualify for that then?

2. Because he indoctrinates them with "Conservative Values"

that's furthering the "cause".

Figures that the more he produces the more conservatives there will be.

It's kind of a conservative Quiverfull thing I guess.

And remember -

4. Thankfully

not all of them can be as "fertile" and/or committed as the Duggars.

3. The first reason is poppycock. But the second might have some resonance

 

It's actually not a bad answer for a Republican to give. It keeps up the 'government bad, business good' argument.
