Conservatives: Shifting Values or No Short Term Memory

It's quickly becoming apparent, either CONServatives don't believe in anything save their drive to retain political power or they have no short term memory.

Take CNN's conservative blow hard Glen Beck for example. He recently interviewed Slick Mitt Romney, questioning the former governor on what should be done about states and municipalities who don't share the CONServative world view on illegal immigration.

Romney's response is typical knee jerk republiCON, punish those states and communities which don't kowtow to the CONServative position by consolidating power within the federal government. Note Glennie Boy didn't challenge Romeny's lust for more federal control of local matters, rather he immediately moved onto a question about his fear over the loss of American sovereignty.

Glen's apparent agreement on the positives of more federal power is shocking given his take on the matter during his Mike Huckabee interview. (Fast forward to the 7:47 position.)

Notice Glen is now apparently incensed with the growth of federal power, mentioning the rise of several state session movements and asks Huckabee "how we correct" the problem of federal power consolidation.

So Glen (and other CONS) which is it? Is CON lust to retain power so great, that its leaders and spokesmen flip flop on supposed core values? Or have they simply lost their short term memory, clearly forgetting previous conflicting positions on important matters like the benefits of federal power? Either way, CON leadership doesn't bode well for America's long term prospects.
