Romney Takes the Plunge and Goes Full Wingnut

Romney must be feeling the heat from the Bain criticism:

During a town hall in Ohio on Wednesday, Romney responded to question about the United Nations by declaring that the international body will undermine Americans’ Second Amendment rights and dictate how families should raise their children:

ROMNEY: Turning to the United Nations to tell us how to raise our kids, or whether we can have the Second Amendment rights that our Constitution gave us, I mean, that is the wrong way to go, right? Do not cede sovereignty. I’m happy to talk there. I’m not willing to give American sovereignty in any way, shape or form to the United Nations or any other body. We are a free nation. We fought for freedom and independence. We are going to keep freedom and independence.

Romney is a conservative, but he’s not this crazy. As Think Progress explains, this is the same kind of leap of lunacy that leads to a belief in light bulb vigilantes vigilantes. He really will do anything, including reciting half-baked neo-Bircher conspiracies, to get elected.

    I wonder if Bain ever invested in a company that produced energy-saving lightbulbs? Real Americans burn whale oil for light.

    So, Mr. Romney, do you support the efforts of Greece to maintain its sovereignty against the demands of the IMF to change its laws?

    He’s just catering to his Tea Party base – however far that takes him. Yet another group that he has trouble fitting in with.

    What is the fear that the UN is going to tell us how to raise our children? Restrictions on corporal punishment?
