Romney is actually the least "flip-flopping" especially considering past MA presidential candidates.

He said Kerry was a worst flip flopper than Romney. That is ridiculous.

His ridiculous pandering to the social conservative wing of the party was terrible. If he actually ran on what he really believes, he would have done much better in my opinion.

The problem with the polls right now is that only Palin has been Palinized. What I mean is that she's been savaged by the media and the Dems (and there are some self inflicted wounds), and when's the last time Huck or Romney was the subject of a negative attack? As soon as they wrap up the the nomination, Huck is a right wing religious wacko even more than Palin, Romney is a flip flopper whose Mormonism will be held against him, and Newt is a philandering old relic.
Will their numbers hold up any better than hers if they were attacked the same way? That's the big question.

Can anyone explain to me how Romney is a flip-flopper?  From what I understand, the only issue he's changed his opinion on is abortion.  What else is there?

There's nothing else to use against him to cover for their anti-Mormon bigotry.

Everybody flip flops, sometimes for good reasons if for some reason you think you should change your opinion on something. Romney has flipped on abortion, gun control. He gets criticized because he seemed to think one thing when running to be a governor of  a moderate state, and another when attempting to be the nominee of a conservative party. He'll need to explain himself, like every other candidate in the world who is not named Barack Obama.

Folks, Americans would never be stupid enough to elect a subliterate Bible-lovin' right-winger with a disgusting southern drawl.

Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.

.yeah.... the question is- can Huckabee pull a Bush- a better question would how Dubya would have done had he run in 1996.

Effective policing requires to know when backing down is in the best interest of public safety.  By all accounts, the culture of the Ferguson Police was ignorant of that fact, and instead treated Cartman of South Park as a role model for how to be a police officer.

Don't worry, there isn't actually anything.  It's just an easy way for people to dismiss him because there isn't anything real for them to attack him for.

Let's see... he managed to get the entire legislature to vote for it. He got everyone insured. Leadership? Much, much better than Obama's attempts at healthcare reform.

It's a fiscal disaster. It's essentially bankrupt now, after only a few years.

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

So, in less than four years, get excited for the 2016 MetLife Financial U Pick The Prez Extravaganza. If you tweet a picture of your completed ballot with the hashtag #ivoted, you could win a trip for two to the inauguration or an iTunes gift card.

Yes, the Massachusetts legislature was an echo chamber for Mitt Romney.

It's a fiscal disaster. It's essentially bankrupt now, after only a few years.

Did you just make that up?  Because it couldn't be further from reality.  I suggest reading up on topics you plan to discuss.

Mitt Probably did change his mind on at least as many things as John McCain. However, he does seem to be a smart and reasonable Republican. Would I vote for him instead of Obama? Probably not...but still, if he ever becomes President, I can say that I would stand up and accept and support him as my President.

I mean, I was quite pleased when even the craziest bitch on the planet said that though she supported him, he would probably not give her the right-wing golden grail- the Supreme Court refusing to apply constitutional scrutiny on abortion laws.

Remember a long time ago when everyone thought that the 2008 election was going to be between Rudy Guliani and Hillary Clinton. A lot can change three years from now, who would have thought four years ago that Barack Obama would be president.
