Mitt's response

Mitt's folks show some rapid response speed and show the Gov'nah setting the record straight on his 1994 comments. If George Allen had the sense to do something like this well...

You're right . . . talk about rapid response!

Wow! I thought that they would saved these videos (which we ALL KNEW were coming) for when things heated up more. I guess his opponent(s) are sick of losing the "talent primary" and the "money primary" to Romney. Over $7 MILLION raised on Monday, S.C. Kredible Konservative Senator DeMint's AMAZINGLY STRONG endorsement letter on Teusday, and then the Roll Call article showing Iowa's "McCain Disdain" forced them to start floundering. It's not a pretty sight.

Romney's been getting some strong defense from conservative sources. I liked "Romney is Smarter than the Average Bear: Part 2" by Dean Barnett and the coverage from K-Lo, the Boston Globe, and Evangelicals for Mitt. These all confirm that well established conservative action groups in Mass(i.e. not the lunatic fringe of the right--like MassResistance) have loved working with Romney and have given him great props for his work there.

It must be frustrating competing against Romney! I'm glad I'm on the RIGHT team!

That was quick! Good thing he had just enough time for his self-tanning lotion to kick in.

This man is brilliant. You can tell from listening to him speak. I think he gets the nomination, and will be our next President.

And that, folks, is how it's done.

How do you "set the record straight" on a series of blatant and bald-faced flip-flops, all timed precisely with the election of the moment?

No credibility. No chance. He'll flame out.

It's interesting that in that same 1994 race, Romney criticized Kennedy for "flip-flopping" on abortion 21 years earlier.

Now his people are saying that we should discount what happened 13 years ago. That's a double standard.

All I want to know is where the hell will he stand in '08 or 2010 on social issues? I don't care what he tells me today. He could tell me he wants every middle class American to get a $5000 tax credit. Super. The point is in five years it will probably change due to a "revolution" and it'd be off the board.

Mitt Romney shows what REAL Straight Talk is supposed to look like!

As a guy on Krusty said today, "Mitt Romney runs AGAINST Ted Kennedy while John McCain partners WITH Ted Kennedy!"

WAR Tim Miller and Eric Branstad providing this venue for me to tease them (all in good fun)

Cancer Man- If this theory is as good as your last one (that the blog had a secret mission of lowering expectations for McCain- when the Roll Call article showed that we were right on the whole time) than I think those you accuse are in good shape.

All in good fun :)

Take a look at Romney's track record with keeping campaign promises. Can you find a single one where he did not either accomplish it or attempt to accomplish it (90% legislature after all)?

There's your answer. Romney keeps campaign promises.

Of course it was fast. Mitt knows that he is dead in the water given his previous history on these issues.

All of 2006 he's had his political team working on response videos.

What happens when he has to make tough decisions will he flip flop and flagelate like a warm bowl full of jelly?

We just can't trust him on important social issues.

dj and several anonymous, school is now in session:

"Flip Flop" is defined as one holding to a view, changing their view and going back to their old view.

As you let that sink in, an example of which is John Kerry, who gets in the military and wins awards, comes home and throws away his ribbons, and then wants to become Commander-in-Chief. Flipped, and then Flopped.

Mitt Romey never flip-flopped. He did do a flip from Pro-choice in 1994 to Pro-life after 2002. He has admitted this for months now. This is exactly what Ronald Reagan did on the same issue.

Like murphy said, can you find a single campaign promise he did not keep or attempt to keep given the nature of the legislature?

To sum up: A man changes his view on abortion over the course of 10 years. While in office, he kept his campaign promises. Thus, he has demostrated more consistency to campaign promises than others in this race.

Class over, it's recess, enjoy your warm bowl full of jelly.
