(Newser) – Mitt Romney might be a nice guy and a "gentleman," but he's no conservative, at least according to Rush Limbaugh. "Romney is not a conservative. He's not, folks," the radio host said on Wednesday. What's more, the argument that Romney's presidential record would differ from his gubernatorial one just doesn't hold water. "We bring up RomneyCare, we're told, 'Well, that's [because] he was a governor, but as president he wouldn't do any such thing.' What do you mean he wouldn't do any such thing? He did it is the point."

It's also "obvious he believes in the concept of manmade global warming," Limbaugh argued. Sure, you can point out that Massachusetts is a liberal state, but "there's gonna be a lot of liberal pressure on whoever our president is: media, Democrat members of Congress that the media's gonna fawn all over." So let's not settle on a candidate just yet—even though "the Republican establishment's trying to nail this down and end it." Click through for Limbaugh's full diatribe.
