The Shifting Romney

Is Mitt Romney not the most transparent politician out there?

First he was for "reproductive rights", and now that he's running for president, he's against abortion. He was for gay rights; now he's opposed. He voted against Ronald Reagan; now he claims to have been a fan all along. And on and on.

This week's flip happened in Iowa. While speaking to a Council Bluffs luncheon, he came out against a pathway to citizenship for the country's undocumented immigrant workers--something he was for as recently a year ago.

Whether liberal, conservative or a moderate, how can anyone vote for a person that appears to change with the wind?
