The Washington Examiner's Phil Klein, one of the best journalists on the right, makes the case in his new book that conservatives will need to have a very different relationship with a Mitt Romney White House than they did with President Bush (or rather, than they did with Bush until Harriet Miers).
In his book, Klein writes:
“There’s always some argument partisans will make to discourage conservatives from criticizing Republicans. In the coming months, those of us who criticize Romney from the right will be told we should save it until after November, or else we’re just helping Obama. When we do so after the election – should he win – we’ll be told he deserves a honeymoon period and needs to rack up a few accomplishments first before moving to items on the conservative agenda. Eventually, it will be that we can’t weaken him before the midterm elections, and then later, that we have to loudly support him, or else he’ll lose reelection to an even worse liberal boogeyman (or boogeywoman) in 2016.”
