Unfortunately, whether it‘s climate change, reproductive rights, auto bailouts, or even his own proposed tax and regulation policies, the story is the same: Romney has switched sides on many of the most important issues of our time, then declined to give a coherent explanation as to why. In fact, in some cases he actually denies that he ever changed his position despite crystal clear video evidence to the contrary. Between this unsettling tendency to switch positions without providing a reason, and a consistent reliance on vague assertions with contradictory details when it comes to discussing a policy agenda on his website and in his speeches, I have come to the following conclusion:
I have no idea what Mitt Romney would do if he became President of the United States.
Nobody does. Rmoney has been consistent in only one thing: He wants the job. He’ll flip and flop and suffer from convenient bouts of Romnesia, whatever it takes to win over another vote.
If the cannibal demographis happened to be the key to winning Ohio, you’d see video of Romney cheerfully snacking on Roasted Sucking Baby.
