Romney: 'Iíve been as consistent as human beings can be'
The Minnesota Post ^ | November 4, 2011 | Eric Black

Posted on 11/11/2011 6:36:07 PM PST by Clintonfatigued

Anyway, all that is by way of introducing a couple of comments Romney made in an interview with the editorial board the Seacoast Media Group, a Fox subsidiaries that owns small newspapers on the coast of New Hampshire and Maine. Romney was asked about the inconsistencies in his positions on certain issues over the years and the poor guy just tried too hard to make the problem go away without explaining it:

“I’ve been as consistent as human beings can be,” he said. And then, maybe even worse, "I cannot state every single issue in exactly the same words every single time."

Maybe that’s really Mitt’s point, to say a whole lot of nothing, and if he is mistaken at any time for saying something, then that was a faux pas on his part.

This is true- Romney has consistantly flip-flopped on every issue under the sun.

Mitt's list of qualifications keeps growing. First he fails to admit Romneycare was a liberal mistake. He continues to defend it and take 50% of the cost of it from the federal tax payers. (How he worked that I don't know).
He keeps flip-flopping and now stands up and says he has been “consistent” as anyone can be....in so many words.

His list of qualifications are for the LIBERAL title, not a conservative Republican title. Does Washington do that to these guys -— a parallel universe or some such similar phenomenon?? Sorry Mitt, but I will vote for you for only one reason -- to get Obama and his Marxist mob out of Washington.

He’s telling us I don’t have principles. But I will be happy to tell you what you want to hear.

Slick Willard is consistent, alright.

He’s been consistently liberal. He’s anti gun as well. He’ll never get my vote.

"I cannot state every single issue in exactly the same words every single time."

Hey Willard, I have found it is real easy to convey the same message everytime if you know it to be true.

Absolutely. But don’t worry, because he’s going to give everyone a waiver from Obamacare. That makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. :-)

He has been a consistent, progressive Republican, and a consistent pretender that he isn’t. It’s all in how one looks at consistency.

Yup. Consistently lying, consistent in accumulating great wealth at the expense of others. And don’t forget! Always the Malibu Ken doll, no longer with a sun tan to hide behind, so his lies are bald faced now.

Not only is he a bald faced liar, he’s delusional to boot.

Definitely presidential material if we go by the current example.

Mitt has been as consistent as the Mormon church over the last 180 years.

” - - - All the spinning must make him dizzy.”

Romney reminds me of a herding dog: “Keep everybody grouped together in a circle.”

Cain crashes on eve of his NH visit.
Manchester on THUR at 11 am.

Newt is the alternative there now at 11%. Maybe the UnionLeader will do an early endorsement to get the momentum going.

Unfortunately, Paul is at 17%, up from 9% in ‘08. And his support is mostly rural, which is the best anti-Romney area. So he is undermining the “stop Mitt” pipe dream.

Mitt 39%, Newt 29% seems like the best case result. But I refuse to count out the rebels in the woods over the mountain west of Milford. I wanna believe.

“Romney is the preferred choice of 40 percent of likely New Hampshire primary voters in a Bloomberg News poll conducted Nov. 10-12. Paul places second at 17 percent, while former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is at 11 percent. All the other candidates are below 10 percent. (Cain 8%)”

Also remember - talking to polls is not uniform across preference.

I've been called NINE TIMES in the past week.

I always hang up.
