Welcome to the First Friday Flip Flop Flyer - a Report that we at the Prolife Mitt Romney Watch will be bringing you each Friday.
Mitt had an eventful week. It seems he's mischaracterizing people as endorsing him who haven't - and people who are advising him who aren't.
First the announcement that Hastert and Boehner were in.
I spoke to Boehner's office myself - as did many others..and it seems Boehner isn't endorsing anyone. Flip Flop.
DeLay warns former colleagues against endorsing presidential hopefuls early , saying everyone ought to wait and see who the true conservatives are. Flip Flop has some 'splaining to do he said.
The dust hadn't even settled when Romney claimed he had a list of advisors, including Henry Kissinger. When blogosphere smelled the rat, Romney's people had to admit this was a list of people who once stood in the same room with him and breathed the same air. Flip Flop.
The right to bear arms people made an astute observation vis a vis Romney's dirty tricks:
This is kind of like the thief who sticks a gun in your ribs and demands $100, but then gives you $25 back to “soften” the blow. That's what we in Massachusetts call Mitt's Flop Flip.
Like we've been saying...Romney's against killing embryos unless they're extra. Since they're all extra, there isn't an embryo in Massachusetts he'd object to killing to harvest stem cells, it softens the blow. Flip Flop's Flop Flip.
Remember when Romney had nothing of substance to say of the list of Romney deceptions that go all the way to 2005 - and he spread the shocking news that the author of the Romney Deceptions had a habit of attacking prominent Republicans like Paul Celluci? (as if any prolifer would see that as a bad thing??)
The chicken came home to roost. Celluci's with the Gadfly about Romney.
Today at Waterloo, Romney's 2002 Flip Flop on biligual education hit blogosphere. To get elected in Massachusetts, he opposed the ballot initiative to replace bilingual education with English. Once elected, Flip Flop.
This from the comments section of the blog:
Romney supported English immersion his entire term as Governor. His recent quote in Waterloo is 100% consistent with his record as Governor.
So this is not a flip-flop. The most you could claim is that Romney changed his position in 2002 before he became Governor. Is that what we're talking about here? Old news from the 2002 campaign that completely disregards his record?

You are right. He supported it as Governor. But he opposed it while on the campaign. It's significant given his pattern.
