In some polls, Mitt Romney is ahead of President Obama in support and shows that he would win if the election were held today. But it seems that people forget what he said time and time again, in various flip-flop quotes. The Republican candidate will loose and will embarass the Republican party. It won't be until 2016 until a Republican would have another chance to run for President. But then they would have another problem on their hands. They would either be running against Joe Biden if he elects to run for President, or another handfull of Democrats that would bid for the Democatic nomination.
Around January 9, 2012 Mitt Romney said, "I would like to be able to fire people". in what was described as the "f-bomb" by Politico.com. Immediately below is a link to the Romney speech.
He also says that politics is not his career. If that were the case, then why is he so deep in politics as to run for President?
In another video link below, Mitt Romney states that he wants everyone in the country to have health insurance, similar to the law that he passed in Massachusetts as he did say in several interviews, but when it came time to run as President of the United States, he now says that he does not support a Health Care Mandate for the country.
Then, his infamous flip-flop quotes; Below are some to just highlight a few....
In a direct quote, he said "It was not my desire to go off and serve in Vietnam." Then he says "I longed in many respects to actually be in Vietnam and be representing our country there."
In another he says, " I will work and fight for stem cell research." But then he says, "In the end, I became persuaded that the stem-cell debate was grounded in a false premise."
"I saw my father march with Martin Luther King." Then he says, "I did not see it with my own eyes."
"I've been a hunter pretty much all my life." Then he says, " I'm not a big game hunter... I've always been a rodent and rabbit hunter. Small varmints, if you will."
"I'm not trying to return to Reagan-Bush." Then he says "Ronald Reagan is ... my hero."
"Roe v. Wade has gone too far." Then he says "I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law of 20 years we should sustain and support it."
"I like mandates. The mandates work." Then he says "I think it's unconstitutional on the 10th Amendment front."
"I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose." Then he says "I never really called myself pro-choice."
"I think the minimum wage ought to keep pace with inflation." Then he says "There's no question raising the minimum wage excessively causes a loss of jobs."
"This is a completely airtight kennel mounted on the top of our car." Then he says "They're not happy that my dog loves fresh air."
These quotes as stated by the candidate for President should disqualify Mitt Romney from being the Republican candidate. The Republicans seem to have fogotten what he has said in the past. He cannot even stay in touch with what he says. Can they trust him to say and do the right thing in the future, especially if he becomes President? Or maybe to them, it really doesn't matter, as long as he beats President Obama in the fall.
