The "Rally Around Romney" Has Begun

So it was with keen interest that I heard the commentators this evening gushing over Gov. Romney. The commentators were saying that he was the only "true conservative" left in the race. The fact that only one person has left since the Iowa Caucus does not seem to matter, but despite that technicality they listed off the reasons for Gov. Romney's now exalted status.
Apparently, he is the only candidate with a truly conservative stance on immigration. He is the only one that does not believe in "amnesty." (I am still wondering why the word "amnesty" is such a nasty word in a Christian society, but that is another unexamined question.) The commentators listed the details as to how the other candidates really do believe in "amnesty" but just use code words to cover up that fact.
Also, he is a candidate who fully embraces a firm stance against abortion. The commentators went on to say that his late conversion is genuine. Moreover, the fact that he had his conversion while serving as the Governor of a liberal state only proves this assertion. The explicit categorization of the timing is intriguing, but that is the message that came over the wire.
They went on to list some other issues, but those two stood out the most during my brief sojourn into darkness. The message of the day was quite clear. The party has begun to finally embrace Gov. Romney, and they are beginning to rally the troops.
Even Rush Limbaugh has been backing off his tough rhetoric about Gov. Romney. Today he publicly stated his reasoning as to why he supported Gov. Romney in the past:
Rush Runs the GOP Primary? - The Rush Limbaugh Show
He firmly set down the rationale that principles do not matter as much any more as the ability to compromise on the choices before him.
The candidate of the establishment now has the establishment fully committed and working for him. The big question is what will happen in South Carolina. If Gov. Romney wins in South Carolina then this new found mantle of conservatism will be the "new rage."
The only question for the other side is whether or not the Democratic machine can muster the kind of "meaness" that is about to be unleashed against it. The anger and spite of the Republican party has been aimed inward and is about to be turned outward.
The gloves are about to come off.
