Another Republi-CON Flip-Flop

"[M]any [Republi-con] notables, such as Mitch Daniels, Rick Perry, Tim Pawlenty, Haley Barbour, Mike Huckabee, Jeb Bush and, of course," Obamney, were for state welfare waivers before they were against them.  Read the Washington Post, The Obama administration fires back on welfare, which notes that "this is hardly the first time a previously widely held Republican policy position has become anathema almost overnight, but it’s a stark change nonetheless."

What to Expect If It Is Obama v. Romney

UPDATE II:  It's déjà vu all over again.

Read the Washington Post, Is the 2012 election the 2004 election all over again?

UPDATE: "He was for it before he was against it, and against it before he claimed credit for it." Read The New York Times, Romney and the Bailout.

Ronmey, the flip-flopper's flip-flopper.

"He’ll have hundreds of millions of dollars, the bully pulpit, Air Force One and high-profile supporters from Warren Buffet to Lady Gaga behind him.

The Obama team, he said, 'wants to make Mitt Romney into the Republican version of John Kerry.'"

Read The New York Times, Can Obama 2012 Replicate Bush 2004?

That's why the base hopes it is anyone but Romney.
