Just so we are clear that Mitt Romney will say anything to get elected, here’s this:
As several leading Republican presidential candidates embrace a flat tax as a core campaign position, one contender stands out in not doing so: Mitt Romney, who has a long record of criticizing such plans and famously derided Steve Forbes’s 1996 proposal as a “tax cut for fat cats.”
Lately, though, his tone has been more positive. “I love a flat tax,” he said in August.
This fucker is impossible to pin down. Thank goodness someone at the Times has a decent memory. Perhaps Mitt is looking in his rearview and seeing that Mr. Pizza is closer than he appears. He should have more courage, ignore others’ positions and run on his record, but what we see seems to show what Mitt truly is-an empty-suit by definition that will say just about anything he needs to say in order to win this fucking nomination. He’ll get the nod, but Obama is going to kick the shit out of him with aplomb. There will be no shortage of ammunition for the President to use. Expect flip-flop sales to spike.
