Memo to Mitt Romney: The next time you run for President, do not trust Paul Weyrich.
The reason: The ad that Weyrich signed on to. (Article 6 Blog has some info here.)
What changed between the time Romney ran for office and even suspended his campaign, and the present day, when he is one of those mentioned as a possible Vice Presidential nominee? I can think of only two things: 1. Romney dropped out and ultimately endorsed McCain, citing the needs of the country and the GOP and 2. Mike Huckabee's complaints that conservative leaders didn't back him.
So now, Weyrich seems to be caving in to complaints from Mike Huckabee. In one sense, you cannot blame him for the second factor - his bread is buttered by these people.
That said, there things that must be said openly: Weyrich's flip-flop makes him untrustworthy. He's not someone who will have your back. He seems to be an individual whose personality is that of a Soviet-era zampolit.
It should also be noted some major Huckabee supporters were behind the ad. I guess they're saying Mormons need not apply for VP as well.
