An Oldie But a Goodie: The Real Romney Is Consistent

I've blogged before (here and here) that Romney was never close to being the liberal that some are claiming. First, though, I'll let the flyer do the talking:


Aside from the well documented, AND WELCOMED, shift on abortion he's been a solid conservative then and now (BTW Romney vetoed the "employer mandate" portion of the MA healthcare plan which was not a "Government Takeover of Health Care" by any stretch of the imagintion) .

It's also notable that Romney supported "Tougher Measures to Stop Illegal Immigration" back in 1994 (supposedly his most "un-conservative" campaign) when Immigration wasn't nearly the hot-button issue that it is today. Something tells me that Romney's got the best record and current position on immigration of anyone in the field of front-runners. This will serve him well.

I can't tell you how many times I've read/heard that Mitt has "flipped on every political issue" or that he used to be a liberal. The fact that he's been consistant on 23 of the 24 (or 96%) issues in this flyer speaks volumes. This past May I posted a blog entry about when McCain's camp was viciously and errantly going after Romney's record. They didn't seem to like facing the facts then . . . and times haven't changed in this regard.
