Is Mitt Romney is politically expedient?
Made popular 405 days ago in
Likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney and President Barack Obama have begun testing lines of attack as they prepare for an expensive and arduous political battle over the seven months between now and the Nov. 6 election.
Romney made news Wednesday by accusing Obama of abandoning 2008 campaign promises for political expediency once in office. It was an unexpected assault by the candidate who is himself under fire in his own party for the ease with which he has changed positions to appeal to the ultra-conservative Republican base.
Romney, who held moderate positions when he won the governorship in Massachusetts 10 years ago, has shifted hard to the political right in his bid for the party nomination. He has been sharply criticized by top challenger Rick Santorum and other Republican rivals for changing his positions on issues ranging from abortion to climate change.
Earlier this year, he reversed course on the minimum wage to bring his stance in line with party orthodoxy, saying he no longer believes it should rise along with inflation. The federal minimum wage law sets a floor under hourly rates for low-paying jobs.
On Wednesday, however, Romney said Obama had undergone his own “series of election-year conversions” on taxes, government regulation and energy production.

Do you believe Mitt Romney is politically expedient?

Romney is so liberal that he is only marginally better than OBumbler. He can speak without the crutch of a telepromter however and is probably his own man rather than someone's puppet. He could pose a great danger by replacing a Conservative Constitutionalist on SCOTUS with another diversity activist ultra liberal judge like Ginsberg, Sotomayor, Kagen or Breyer and complete the destruction of American society desired by Obama and his progressive minders.
