Mitt’s history,... his record of flip-flops,... ad deviations from conservative and Republican positions ....is on an order of magnitude beyond anything else out there.......there really isnt one central core to Romney as a political leader that is free of flip-flops, ..no one thing could be sure he’d never compromise in.
In order to have substance you have to have some measure of constancy...Romney has zip-zero consistancy...nada!
Whatever else he is, Romney knows private business better than Obama, is more pro-capitalism than Obama, and unlike Obama, has to consider whether his actions in office will alienate Republicans. That latter is particularly key.
I can't imagine a plausible scenario where Romney is worse than Obama, and quite a few where he will be significantly better.
