Are Right Wing Extremists Already Turning On Romney?

With the Romney campaign making an almost daily effort to demonstrate how unqualified the Right's chosen candidate actually is, it's a wonder that he's even competitive. Already the Right seems to be moving from "Romney will be great" to "At least he's not as bad as Obama" mode in the hopes that those who will simply vote for anyone running against the President will not just stay home on election day. And when the very Right Wing extremists who have been controlling Romney's every move start to turn on him, it could get ugly. The Republican convention hasn't happened yet, and one begins to wonder if Romney can even make it that far.

Article excerpt follows:

Bryan Fischer: How Is Romney ‘Going To Stand Up To North Korea If He Can Be Pushed Around By A Yokel Like Me?'
By Alex Seitz-Wald
May 5, 2012

American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer led the right-wing charge against Mitt Romney's ousted foreign policy spokesman Ric Grennell, lambasting the presumed GOP nominee for hiring the openly-gay aide. When Grennell resigned under pressure from social conservatives this week, Fischer declared it a "huge win."

But today, Fischer himself backtracked a bit. On his radio, the far-right activist noted what many liberals have, asking, why should voters trust Romney to confront Russia or North Korea if he can't even stand up to a "yokel" talk show host? Right Wing Watch flagged the clip:

FISCHER: If Mitt Romney can be pushed around, intimidated, coerced, co-opted by a conservative radio talk show host in Middle America, then how is he going to stand up to the Chinese? How is he going to stand up to Putin? How is he going to stand up to North Korea if he can be pushed around by a yokel like me? I don't think Romney is realizing the doubts that this begins to raise about his leadership.

    The only reason why Republicans say they support Mitt Romney is because the downside polls keep saying that he is the best man to beat President Obama. And Republicans and Teaparty know they will twist Mitt Romney like a twisted loaf of bread to what they want him to do. And that is why if the people think Mitt Romney will do something for them or create nut shell job, they are living an illusion.

    I didn't expect them to begin devouring one another this soon. It was clearly inevitable but, already?
