Romney says he has ‘been as consistent as human beings can be’

Speaking at an editorial board meeting in Hew Hampshire on Thursday, presidential hopeful Mitt Romney (R-Mass.) claimed a record of constancy in his campaign for the Republican nomination.

"The nice thing about writing a book is that I can lay out what I believe on a wide array of issues that face the country," Romney told the Portsmouth Herald editorial board. "And I think you’ll find I've been as consistent as human beings can be as I look at those issues and as I try to apply those principles to government.”

The former Massachusetts governor has been under attack for his evolving stances and for not standing behind what he wrote in his book, No Apology.

Fellow Republican candidates Rick Perry (Texas) and Jon Huntsman (Utah) have both released ads attacking Romney for changing positions and the Democratic National Committee launched ‘WhichMitt.com.’
