Mitt spoke today at the Value Voters meeting in DC and Dave Weigel was there to document the flip-flops.
If this were any other candidate it would be a minor story. After all, we're talking about a politician. Obama was against mandates before he was in favor of them, for instance.
Mitt Romney at the Values Voter Summit this morning:
When government is trying to take over health care, buying car companies, bailing out banks, and giving half the White House staff the title of czar – we have every good reason to be alarmed and to speak our mind!
Romney at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February:
I know we didn’t all agree on TARP. I believe that it was necessary to prevent a cascade of bank collapses. For free markets to work, there has to be a currency and a functioning financial system.
But Romney's flip-flops involve polar opposites. In the 30 years I've followed politics I've never seen anything like Mitt.
Romney was against Reagan before he was for him; for abortion before he was against it; for gun control before he was against it, for universal health care before he was against it, and on, and on, and on,....
Does Romney stand for anything? In a couple hours any opo firm could turn out a dozen ads to run against Romney.
