Romney on McCain-Feingold

Townhall has an exculsive article up today by Mitt Romney, titled: The Fundamental Flaws in the McCain-Feingold Law.

While I am 100 percent opposed to McCain-Feingold, I think it is only fair to mention that, in the past, Romney was a big supporter of campaign finance reform.

On one hand, I think it is possible to say: "Yeah, but who cares about the past?"  That's a legitimate point to make, because we aren't electing the Mitt Romney of 1994, but the Mitt Romney of 2008. 

Ultimately, I guess, the real question comes down to whether or not you believe Mitt Romney has legitimately changed his mind on issues like abortion and campaign finance reform -- or if this is the case of a very good business man who has adapted his positions to fit his audience ...

Update:  2:29 - Never mind 1994, this Hill article says that as late as 2002, Romney supported taxing political contributions:

The Quincy Patriot Ledger and the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported in the fall of 2002 that Romney proposed taxing political contributions to finance publicly funded campaigns.

“Mr. Romney campaigned in favor of clean elections, which provides public money to candidates for state office who meet strict fundraising requirements,” the Telegram & Gazette reported. “But he suggested an alternative funding method. Instead of providing campaign funds from state coffers, his plan would tap 10 percent of the fundraising of candidates who choose to raise money privately.”
