Krauthammer on Romney's "very poor" phrasing.

In case you live under a rock, the back story is here. Via the Daily Caller, watch Charles Krauthammer blast Romney for failing to speak the conservative language.

“The idea that somehow we consign the poor to the safety net and we patch it, and dependency, is a liberal idea. It’s not our idea. And Romney is a guy who came late to his new ideology and he still can’t speak it very well.”

Krauthammer gets at what Mark Steyn was talking about earlier today. It’s not just that Mitt managed to deliver the Democrats the most awesome out of context sound byte ever, it’s that he clearly doesn’t even understand or know how to articulate a conservative position on the issue.
