Face It: Mitt(wit) Romney Is A Boring Flip-Flopper

Before even announcing his intention to seek the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination, Mitt(wit) Romney looks to be the front-runner once again. Most polls as well as the recent New Hampshire straw poll show him points ahead of any G.O.P. challenger. The reason for this is that he could potentially capture the substantial moderate vote. He has the business acumen and executive experience to convince G.O.P. voters that he is the man to lead the nation out of its economic woes. He also does not align himself with the ultra-wacky Tea Party element of the Republican Party. For instance, he does not tout such draconian measures as abolishing Social Security, the Federal Reserve or the Dept. of Education. Indeed, during his tenure as Governor of Massachusetts, he was considered socially liberal. The fiscally conservative/socially liberal voter is a force to be reckoned with.

Romney does have a strong negative however. He is seen by many as a flip-flopper. A person who changes his position on issues depending on which way the popular wind is blowing. remember, he was pro-choice before he was ant-choice; he was pro-immigrant before he was anti-immigrant; he was pro-gay before he was anti-gay and he was pro-gun control before he was anti-gun control. Most potentially damaging of all to Romney however, is that he was pro health care reform before he  was anti health care reform. Romney after all, was the first Governor to sign into law a health care reform bill with a personal mandate requiring all citizens to purchase health insurance or pay a fee to the tax man. Our national health reform law was modeled after the law that Romney (and Tea Party Senator Scott “Nudey” Brown) endorsed while Governor of Massachusetts.

Let’s watch Romney’s ever changing positions, shall we?

That was amusing, but wouldn’t it be even more fun hearing some of this stuff right from the horse’s mouth? Well, simply ask and you shall receive…

Romney will have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do during primary debates regarding his many flip=flops, but especially “the biggee” with regard to health care reform. Another obstacle for Romney and most all Republicans however, is that he does not have a sense of humor. Let’s face it, Republicans are not funny. They lack the comedy gene. Do any of you remember the disaster of a conservative television comedy show which was “The 1/2 Hour News Hour” which aired on Fox News (where else)? Suffice to say, the show was canceled after only 14 episodes. Shall we have a look see?

Boy, that was especially funny in light of the Tucson shootings!

But we digress. We were talking about Mitt Romney’s “unfunniness”. Many people do not realize that despite the Mittster’s milquetoast Mormon inspired image, he has re-made himself into a laugh riot since 2008. Don’t believe me, then try to watch his appearance last night on “The Late Show With David Letterman” without bursting into tears of laughter.

On second thought, keep your day job, Mitt. That was not funny in the least. By the way, what the heck is Mitt Romney’s day job anyway?

The Great Pretender song link:


(sung to The Platters song “The Great Pretender”)

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Pretending that he is so swell
His needs are such; he pretends too much
The truth he simply cannot tell

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Romney’s true beliefs are unknown
Mitt plays the game; flip-flops without shame
With no firm beliefs of his own

He was pro-choice he had us all believe
But when he faced strife, he switched up to pro-life

Oh yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
His opinion changes by town
Mitt claims to be what he’s not; you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown

In Mass., health reform was what he achieved
He now says he feels health reform needs repeal

Yes, Mitt’s the great pretender
Just switching positions around
Ol’ Mitt Romney is not what you see
He wears his deceit like a crown
Romney is a flip-flopping clown
