Romney’s Wonderland of Changing Opinions

To the Editor:News
“Curiouser and curiouser.” Romney must have been thinking of these words from Alice In Wonderland when he replied to (Meet The Press, 9/9/12) David Gregory’s question about not mentioning the war in Afghanistan in his Convention speech. Romney said, “You know, I find it interesting that people are curious about mentioning words in a speech opposed to policy. “

So, he’s talking about not mentioning words in a speech? That is really curious. But I think Romney has found a way to do that.

Romney’s words on Obamacare:

• June 2, 2011 – Announcing his 2012 Run for President Mitt Romney said,

We will return responsibility and authority to the states for dozens of government programs – and that begins with a complete repeal of Obamacare.”
“We must rein in the skyrocketing cost of healthcare by repealing and replacing Obamacare.

March 22, 2012 Why I’d Repeal Obamacare By Mitt Romney:

“Friday is the second anniversary of Obamacare. It is past time to abolish the program, root and branch.”

• Sunday, September 9, 2912, Meet The Press, hosted by David Gregory:

Romney said, “Well, I’m not getting rid of all of healthcare reform. Of course, there are a number of things that I like in healthcare reform that I’m going to put in place. One is to make sure that those with pre-existing conditions get coverage.”

I think another quote from Alice clearly explains and defines who the real Romney is: “I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night? Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!“
