Mitt Romney’s supposed moderation is mostly a mask. If you look at the people he associates with and who help form his thinking, he’s about as extreme as it gets. W. Cleon Skousen. Glenn Beck. John Bolton. Kris Kobach. It’s like a who’s who of the radical right.
I doubt Pamela Geller has any particular influence with Romney, but there’s a reason why she’s hyping him — because when Romney starts talking about Muslims and Islam he’s pretty hard to tell apart from Geller or Spencer.
