Mitt Romney is turning into a joke. If you don’t like his position on something just wait a bit. He might change it if the wind blows in a different direction.
His latest feat of mental gymnastics occurred in Ohio, where he once supported Governor Kasich’s union-busting bill. Romney came to the state to support the efforts to support Issue 2, but he must have seen the polls which showed how unpopular the bill had become. So he wavered. Conservatives were justifiably outraged, so a day later Mitt flipped again and said he was 110 % behind the bill.
Rick Perry and the others GOP candidates will savage him for this. Meanwhile, the Democrats are happy to chime in as well. See the video above.
We’re seeing a battle of videos out there and the Rick Perry-Mitt Romney feud gets personal and nasty.
Mitt Romney’s campaign put out a scathing video yesterday implying that Perry wasn’t capable of speaking coherently. The video was taken down after complaints by CNN of clips from their pundits, and now it’s been re-posted by an organization that downloaded the original video.
Perry’s video above hit Romney where it hurts. Not only is Romney a compulsive flip-flopper who will take different positions depending on the political environment he’s facing, Romney will also lie about his past positions. This video is devastating, and provides fodder for Romney attacks during the GOP primaries and in a potential general election match-up.
Perry is also vulnerable, and we can expect to see more videos from Romney showing Perry’s difficulties with the English language. He makes George W. Bush sound like a Shakespearean actor.
It’s game on folks, and this political cage match should be fun to watch, and it’s precisely what the Obama campaign has been waiting for.
