The Romney Two Step

I have been mostly silent on the Republican primary contest, but enough is enough. Mitt Romney is exceedingly disingenuous, dishonest and not to be trusted. Say what you want about Newt Gingrich, but he hasn't relegated his political opponents to abject mockery and ridicule. Nearing the end of the embedded video Romney says what is happening now is the same thing that that led to him being reprimanded and pushed out of the speaker position by his own fellow republicans.

I couldn't agree more.

Romney: "What you see now is the same old Newt Gingrich." Yep, that's right. He is the same man who ushered in the Contract With America, the first Republican congressional majority, welfare reform, balanced budgets and more.

What do we see from you Mr. Romney?

Believing in people is protecting their freedom to make their own life choices, even if their choice is different than yours. Accordingly, I respect and will fully protect a woman’s right to choose. That choice is a deeply personal one, and the women of our state should make it based on their beliefs, not mine and not the government’s.
My position has not changed. The truth is there is no candidate in this race from either party who would deny the women of our state abortion rights. So let’s end an argument that does not exist and put to rest these cynical and divisive attacks made simply for political gain."
"To hide their mess on Beacon Hill, the Democrats now admit their only hope is to scare people with a fear and smear campaign aimed at me. It is the last trick of desperate politicians and the people of Massachusetts won’t be fooled by it."
"Mitt Romney supports the strict enforcement of gun laws. He is a supporter of the federal assault weapons ban."

That was then, and this is now.
