The Republican Party Starts Falling in Line Behind Mitt Romney

Posted by Paul Constant on Wed, Jan 11, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Last night, Sean Hannity chastised Rick Perry for attacking Mitt Romney for engaging in "vulture capitalism." Hannity said Perry sounded "like something from Occupy Wall Street." Meanwhile, Rush Limbaugh attacked Newt Gingrich for attacking Romney's Bain record, too:

“Capitalism is under assault here in the Republican Party,” said Limbaugh. “I’m telling you, I don’t care how much you love Newt, that is not good. Capitalism being under assault in the Republican Party is not gonna help us at all. It’s what Michael Moore does.”

The party's not entirely aligned yet—Limbaugh's got a lot of backpedaling to do on his teeny, tiny little bicycle before he can get past his "Romney is not a conservative" rant of a few months back—but you can see it happening. I'm willing to bet that by the end of the month, the conservative media machine will be claiming that Mitt Romney is now, and has always been, the conservative messiah.
