Rush Limbaugh Slams Mitt Romney: He ‘Is Not a Conservative’

(By Jonathon M. Seidl, The Blaze) - Just days after Mitt Romney picked up a key endorsement from Chris Christie, he is now having to deal with the fact that he’s lost the support of another prominent conservative — Rush Limbaugh.

On his radio show Thursday, Rush blasted the former Massachusetts governor by questioning his conservatism.

“Romney is not a conservative,” Rush said, “he’s not, folks. You can argue with me all day long on that, but he isn’t. What he has going for him is that he’s not Obama.”

He went on to say that Romney is a good debater and called him “a fine guy” who he likes “very much,” but cited the governor’s support of government-mandated health care and man-made global warming.

“He’s a very nice gentleman,” he said. “He is a gentleman. But he’s not a conservative.”

Rush’s comments came in response to callers and listeners who have told him he must pick a candidate to endorse.

“I’m personally not ready to settle on anybody yet.”
