Get Mitt Romney A Backbone or Send Him to The Wizard to Get Some Courage
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has mastered the art of the flip-flop, he changes his opinion as much as he changes his underwear (magic perhaps?). I take great liberty in assuming that Romney practices good hygiene and showers at least once a day but either way, he is incapable sticking to his conviction on important issues.
Always the opportunist, he is so eager to get approval from the tea party crowd that he has no problem changing his opinion on any issue if it will get him a few more votes. Personally, I prefer someone with conviction and wherewithal; someone who won't fold like a cheap card table when faced with a difficult decision. This is not the mettle that makes someone presidential. Difficult decisions are not made based on political expediency but facts and conviction.
Mitt Romney changes his opinion on so many issues that he confuses voters. He has been running for president since 2008 and still languishes in the polls and has been bested by the come latelys Rick Perry and Herman Cain. What else does he really stand for besides corporations and the one percent that he is part of? His lame attempt at being every man is failing miserably. He has shifted his opinions on the flat tax, health care, abortion and gays in the military. His latest attempt to gain traction has to do with denial of science and skepticism about the cause of climate change.
As governor of Massachusetts supported regulation of carbon dioxide emissions and as a presidential candidate months ago, Romney actually said he believed the world is getting warmer and that humans contributed to it, now it's deny, deny, deny. Deny all you want, you and corporate friends won't be around to see the effects that climate change on our planet but our grandchildren and great grandchildren will.
