MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough took to his Twitter account Saturday night to rip Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s campaign strategy, declaring “a real conservative would be winning by now.”

“Romney will lose if he doesn’t dramatically change his strategy. Negative ads won’t substitute for conservative ideas,” Scarborough tweeted, along with a link to a Politico article assessing the state of the presidential race.

He added, “The Romney campaign is not conservative. It is just as cynical and risk-averse as Team Obama. A real conservative would be winning now.”

The former Republican congressman went on to criticize Romney on vague policies, declaring former President Ronald Reagan and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher would both have lost had they run as “timid a campaign” as Romney.
