Romney To Give Liberty University Commencement Address

Romney with Ann Coulter, who is rumored to be a man.
From World Magazine comes word that Mitt Romney will be the commencement speaker at Liberty University. This would be an effort by Romney to shore up support among the far right evangelicals represented by the Lynchburg school.

Let's listen closely and determine just how far to the right he goes in this setting. Could set up some interesting dynamics when he is forced to move back toward the middle in the general election.

Here's the story from the magazine:

Mitt Romney will deliver the commencement address to this year's Liberty University graduates, a speech likely to offer more than the usual tips for success dished out during graduation ceremonies.

Unlike Rick Santorum, his former rival for the Republican nomination, Romney has not actively courted evangelical voters, a bloc pundits say he needs if he's going to beat President Barack Obama in November. After weeks of speculation about who evangelicals would support after Santorum dropped out of the race, the commencement gives Romney a chance to be seen and heard in a prime evangelical setting, said Mark DeMoss, an unpaid Romney adviser.
