He was for healthcare before he was against it.
He was for abortion before he was against it.
He was for gun control laws before he was against them.
He was for Hispanics when he lived in Mexico. Now he's against them.
He was against blacks, until 1979 when his church told him "Ok, they are not the devil." Now he is for them.

Like the weather, Flip Romney is always changing and usually not for the better.

The self-serving lord marshal b. h. obama lied and lied to the American people saying his health care plan was NOT a TAX even after the word TAX popped its head up time and time again.
At least Romney was upfront and called a TAX a TAX. Apparently the above dirty diaper democRats Bevis and Butthead are too stupid to appreciate a bit of honesty. The libelous bevis and butthead continue to wallow around in sugarcoated marxist poop like the pathetic fools they are.
What matters now is Romney's word to rid America of an obamacare nightmare. That's full speed ahead.

"GIBSON:”Governor … you imposed tax penalties in Massachusetts?”

ROMNEY:”Yes, we said, look, if people can afford to buy it, either buy the insurance or pay your own way; don’t be free-riders.”

Looks like he said "Yes" to me.

boo hoo..lol.

Well, you know Mute Romney.
Just because he was for it in the past doesn't
mean he's for it now.

Healthcare, abortion...he was for them before he was against them.
Maybe instead of Mute Romney I'll call him Flip Romney.
