What I wonder is, has the flood of flip-flops from the Republicans made it safe to change positions at will? Does anybody in the Republican Party care about the about-faces that these candidates are engaging in on a daily basis? These aren’t evolving positions, these aren’t candidates getting wiser or processing new information — these are all about integrity and core beliefs versus putting your finger up to the political winds and going whichever way the wind is blowing that day.
Romney is the ultimate weathervane in a hurricane. More pro-gay rights than Ted Kennedy, now gay bashing. Pro-gun control, pro-Brady bill, pro-assault weapons ban, now a “hunter” (twice) and a lifetime member of the NRA (since last August). Pro-choice, now pro-life. For immigration reform, now against it.
