At a meeting between media and conservative legislators today, Tea Party firebrand Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) shared his opinions on Mitt Romney, his party’s presumed presidential nominee. Gohmert is a bit apathetic, if not outright disdainful. According to Dave Weigel at Slate, Gohmert said of Romney, “whether you’re liberal, or whether you’re very conservative, you ought to be excited, because he’s been on your side at one time or another.” Realizing that the reference to Romney’s prodigious flip flopping may be problematic, Gohmert tried to smooth things over. “So I’m not completely understood,” he said. “I’m not as excited as I am desperate.”
