little Friday morning comedy courtesy of The Hill:
Ive been as consistent as human beings can be, the presidential candidate said in a meeting with the editorial board of New Hampshires Seacoast Media Group. I cannot state every single issue in exactly the same words every single time, and so there are some folks who, obviously, for various political and campaign purposes will try and find some change and try to draw great attention to something which looks like a change which in fact is entirely consistent.
Im not sure if Romney actually believes this nonsense, or if he thinks Republican voters are stupid (given his status as frontrunner, he may be right). Or perhaps he considers his consistent inconsistency to be entirely consistent. I would have paid big money to see the looks on the faces of the editorial board when Mitt uncorked this billowing cloud of methanous gas. Im guessing at least one of them had to rush home for a change of drawers. In any event, this is either extremely funny or extremely scary. I know I laughed when I read it. Loud enough that my wife ran into the room to see if I was OK. (Incidentally my drawers didnt need changing, though it was a near thing). However, it wont be so funny if Republicans nominate this guy. If this is how Mitt plans to rationalize his many years of flip-flopping on practically every issue under the sun, Obama wont need half of the billion dollars hes planning on raising for his re-election campaign.
He is consistent in his lies. He is consistently devoted to socialism. He is a constant phony conservative.
If his lifelong pattern holds, Romney will flip flop on this claim of consistency and start saying that he has always been reliably inconsistent.
