Romney's Speech

This weekend has been a boon for Mitt so far. Continuing the good news is this comment from Paul at Powerline:

Readers may recall that I was disappointed by Mitt Romney's speech at National Review's conservative summit. But Mitt didn't disappoint today at CPAC. Instead, building on the theme of a unified conservative movement articulated by Ronald Reagan at the same forum 30 years ago, Romney presented a fiery defense of all three major strands of conservatism -- economic, social, and security.

In the absence of another first-tier Republican candidate with a longer track-record of up-front social conservatism, Romney is the social conservative in this race as far as I'm concerned. Indeed, one would be hard-pressed to listen to his speech of today and doubt that Romney is the most solidly conservative of the three front-runners, period.
And for those who are wondering why it is that conservatives are so excited, here are excerpts of his speech.

You might as well have John Kerry up there giving the same speech, and these gullible college students who don't even know what conservatism means will eat it all up.

Oh wise Braden... it's a good thing you're around to remind everyone what it "really" means, isn't it?

I'm not sure who braden was referring to when he said "these" college students, but as for this college student, I know what conservatism is. I defend it everyday in class against the overwhelming tide of liberalism at the school I attend. Perhaps he could explain what conservatism means.
