Skip to comments.Mitt Romney: “I’ve Been as Consistent as Human Beings Can Be”

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’s right. Consistently stupid. Consistently liberal. 10-4.
Denial: not just a pretty river in Egypt. Apparently Mitt’s running his campaign from it.
Maybe we should cut him some slack. If he’s referencing his consistency to flip-flop on all sorts of issues over the years, then I think we need to give that one to him.
You forgot “consistently inconsistent”.
Hehe...what’s he doing...pitching titles for “Mitt Romney the musical?”
Or maybe the “Consistent Song” is meant to be the show stopper?
Which side of his mouth did he say that out of? Will he contradict himself tomorrow? Even his wife said that he can convincingly argue both sides of an issue at once.
If you were to thump Mitt Romney, he'd echo like a drum. He's got no core at all.
Romney is an alien.
ROMNEY MAKES KERRY LOOK HONEST.
Yeah and only conservatives like Cain, Palin, Bachmann, etc say stupid things. This man is always popping out seriously inconsistent possitions yet he is considered the adept candidate which is largely because of the way he is reported on and less about how he really conducts himself.
You've got a point there. Mitt wears bigger flip-flops than Kerry does. More often, too.
Why is any supporting this guy?
He’s right - he’s consistently flip-flopping
He is right, he consistently flip flops. You can set a watch to it.
He’s pretty consistent. Given the option of conservative or liberal on a decision, he’ll go liberal.
as long as the human being in question is John Kerry
