Right now you've got a political Right that believes in and strives for small government, and a political Left which characterizes that within the framework of their own identity based political viewpoint (ie: Republicans aren't really for small government at all, but use that as an excuse to push a pro-white/male/rich/religious agenda).

And that's exactly what I was talking about. In what possible way can you argue that Romney was more aligned to the social conservative side than the fiscal side? Romney was as non-threatening in terms of social conservative position as possible.

That you could say that shows how successful the Left has been in framing such things, just as I said. The only way to make such a statement is if you are measuring "social conservative" based on an assumption that the Right engages in the same sorts of identity politics that the Left does.
