Yes, this can be seen in his previous campaigns- I will not change or chip away at (fill in blank). He’s said the same, recently, about federal firearms laws, I will not change them.
I wonder what he’d really do as President. Look at all the stuff that happened in Massachusetts with him as Governor, and none of it was because of a decision he made! He was either forced into doing it by circumstances beyond his control (gay marriage, homosexual adoptions) or it somehow just happened.
Like keeping uniformed Boy Scouts out of the Olympics, apparently nobody made that decision, but it was not to be changed or challenged.
As with gay marriage, so with contraceptions under Romneycare. He blames the courts when it was the interpretation of his lawyers, he blames the legislature when it was the interpretation of his lawyers — and then he goes ahead with his liberal decision.
