I am an old fashioned conservative, and I think we have a good shot with Romney. Someone who has an executive background, a business background, and can handle both the economic situation and foreign policy.

But the social crazies are driving me nuts. If we lose this election, it will be the fault of the abortion and gays crowd. I know several rational, reasonable people (mainly women) who normally would be conservative, who are terrified of the place the US will turn into if the loonies are allowed to run the asylum (to quote my co-worker). Another told me that while she actively dislikes Obama, she doesn't want to live in a Christian version of Iran either. So her idea of the better of two evils has her leaning towards Obama.

What can/should Romney do to distance himself clearly from the Pat Robertson crowd? Will a Sister Souljah moment help? It doesn't matter here (Texas) but there are other states where it might make a difference.
