The Multitudinous Mitt

Indeed, while I will vote for him, this critique is right-on. Romney seems to lack a "guide-star". What will we get if he is elected? No one really seems to know. The only firm conviction most of us have is that he will be "better" than Obama. Mr. Romney: How about making this statement; "I will submit a balanced budget to congress"?

he can't. he loves all the unconstitutional big government programs too much. there none of them he would be willing to reduce the budget for.

Romney, as a shape-shifter, might actually make such a promise. But why on earth would you believe him?

Romney is both a supporter of, and an opponent of, abortion--depending on who he is speaking to.

If you accuse Romney of being heartless because he wants to cut big government program A, he will smile and assure you, shape-shifter-like, that he would never cut that program.

He is both for strict gun control, and for the Second Amendment, depending on the split-second in which he is speaking.

That needs some clarification. Mr. Romney supports limits to Abortion on Demand. But, he supports Abortion in cases of Rape or Incest, or where the life of the Mother is at risk, due to Pregnancy, as determined by a qualified Physician.

So, taking that into account, is he For or Against Abortion. The answer is Yes, depending on the situation.

Life isn't always black or white.

Sorry, but you are much to simplistic to state the real situations.

Lkartchner, what you say about Romney's "stance" (not "stand") on abortion is absolutely correct--for the current split-second.

In 1994, he was FOR abortion. He approved taxpayer funded abortion on demand in Massachusetts, even after he proclaimed his devotion to being pro-life.

I stand by my comments: Romney is a political shape-shifter.

In Wednesday's debate, Mitt Romney said he will "stop the subsidy" to public broadcasting. That's good to know, because Mitt Romney's campaign website says he will merely "reduce subsidies for ... the Corporation for Public Broadcasting."

Kill Big Bird or just pluck some of his feathers? Or neither, in keeping with what often happens to promises made by politicians? As Ted Kennedy once said of Romney's abortion policy, "I am pro-choice. My opponent is multiple choice."

Barack Obama had a tough time in the debate because he was told he would be debating Mitt Romney, a self-described "severely conservative"...
