    I wonder why republicans and independents don't have an issue with the flip flopping of Mitt Romney or is it not important and am I exageratting the issue?

    If I d have my brother saying 1 thing 1 day and 1 other thing every other day, I d have an issue trusting him. How do you know what he ll say and do as a president if he s so inconsistent?


    And this is something else I really don't get: Is a Mormon really like any other Christian (as some people seem to believe)? I say this because GOP is the most religious Christian party, the only problem I see is that the holy book of mormons is not "the holy bible" but "the Book of mormon". I wonder if Mitt Romney will swear his inauguration on "the book of mormon" then, since he doesn't believe in the bible

    For the same reason that liberals don't have a problem with the gross mis-handling of Benghazi: he's their boy and he's a lot better than the other no matter what.


    If he has flip flopped so much, it's such a big deal and independents should see it as a good enough reason not to vote for him, then it's Obama and the democrats' campaigns' fault for not making that clear enough to them.

    But in general, it's only wild partisans that make a big deal out of it. All politicians lie and all politicians say what's best for their (re)election effort.

    They consider the opposition and make the better choice in favor of Romney. The real question is how could anyone vote for Obama knowing how piss poor of a job he has done for four years?

    It's not an issue because it's a bunch of Horse shit peddled by the other side.

    They both flip on issues. obama flips because his VP is an idiot. Romney flips because he is trying to be the president America wants. FEMA abortion etc

    from the republican debate





    well there are also a number of video clips, but this is of course a subjective campaigne like youtube video:
    But still you can not fake what he said, they could ve been taken out of context but still: it does seem weird that so many news sources agree on it if it is not true (newspapers, tv news, ... )


    lol, I even found that some dude made a whole website about it: http://www.whichmitt.com/

    Well at least it s funny :p , sure I know all politicians flip flop. I think that it s only an idiot that never changes his mind because he thinks he s always right. But flip flpping all the time does seem to make you unreliable (at least if it is the case)
