Mitt Romney's Greatest Flips

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics...flops-20120801

Is GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney "a strong believer in stating your position and not wavering," as he once bragged? Or is he, as his onetime presidential rival Gov. John Hunstman called him, a "perfectly lubricated weathervane"? Take a read and decide for yourselves.

This is the best the GOP can come up with. Pathetic. I already knew he had no integrity though. Constantly changing positions depending on audience.

Never sure how to respond to anti-Romney threads started by liberals. One the one hand, Romney is scum, and I won't vote for him, just like I won't vote for Obama. On the other hand, the OP does nothing but vote for people who are brazen in their efforts to make life worse for every American.

I think I'd rather bash the OP, than Romney, in this case. Flintlocker, Toorop, 1200Fleas, or whatever you're calling yourself these days, go take a flying leap, you racist. You're no better than the two turds running for office this year.

Calm down you insane drama queen. Now I can understand the usual dimwits around here accusing me of being someone else, which I'm not, and they are welcome to their delusions. But when you start calling me a racist we're gonna have problems. Capiche?

And Obama doesn't flip? I'll vote for the lesser of the two evils. The goal is to remove the problem from the White House Then try to hold the correct course. It may take time but revolutions are sometimes slow.

Flintlocker,

Why did you start a thread bashing Mitt Romney?
Do you want Obama to win re-election?

Are you an Obama supporter?
If you are, then I understand the purpose of this thread.

If you're not an Obama supporter, then why would you attack the political record of the only person who stands a chance of throwing Obama out of office?

ALL politicians flip flop on the issues. That's not news to anyone on this forum.

Romney is far from perfect. In fact he's a terrible candidate.
He's a New England tax and spend liberal hiding in a see thru conservative shell.

But you know what?....AND THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART:
Romney is all that stands between us and Obama's second term.

If Obama wins, he'll go hog wild on raising taxes, banning guns and implementing a full blown socialist agenda, since he can't get re-elected and has nothing to lose.

The damage that Obama will do in his second term makes Mitt Romney look pretty good to me.

What about you?

..

Flip flops or outright lies from Obama?

--“I promise 100% transparency in my administration.”.
--“I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year.”.
--“I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills.”.
--“I will remove earmarks from PORK projects before I sign any bill.”.
--“I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year.”.
--"I will bring ALL of our troops home within ONE year."
--“I’ll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!”.
--“I’ll have no lobbyists in my administration."
--"I'll close Guantanamo."
--"I'll resign if I don't cut the deficit in half by the end of four years."
--"I'll unite the people of this great country."

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. Leadership means that ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership . Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit."

Yep, Ol Romney flip-flops, is antie gun is a tax cheat, hates women and gays and small children. He's such a terrible human being we must re-elect the Oboimation. I mean The Obimination is so honest, he has released all his collage transcripts, his "real" birth certificate, voted "present" 90% of the time, palled around with a known domestic terrorist, attended a racist anti American church, proved he's a racist in his books and by his actions, won't wear an American Flag pin because it might offend "other" anti Americans, won't pledge allegiance to our flag apologizes for our taking action to protect our way of life bows to foreign heads of state tells our law enforcement agencies to allow foreigners to brake our law (threatening our national security) and on and on and on. Yep, Romney is sooooo much worse than the anti American racist that's leading our nation down the road to destruction that we just can't allow Romney to become president.

If everything the Lefteys said about Romney actually were true he still WOULD NOT be half as bad as The Obomination.

You know, I think I can relate to that a bit. If that is your "favorite" then you and I came from different worlds entirely.

I was in high school when the war ended, but like almost every generation of my family before me, that grew up during a war, I had my branch of the service picked out, and optimistically my MOS as well. That is what my family did. Never served in peace time but served unquestionigly when there was a war.

My friends and I, almost to a one had fathers in WWII or Korea, were, in a way you can't understand, "let down" a bit. I know that seems strange to someone like you and I admit in later years I came to think that I was fortunate.

Nonetheless, if you ask me, right now, how I felt in 1973 and then in '75 I would have to be honest and say "In '73, reday to serve, in 75 terribly let down" I was young after all, young. I don't think his words were that hard to believe.

I respect anyone that tries to get after the truth. You should try it.

The OP makes me more sick to my stomach that I'm going to pull the lever for Romney.

ETA: I'm not an Obama supporter, but I guess that's the label I'll have to accept from the great JBnTX if I post anything hurtful about Romney. Shame.
