Connie Schultz wonders if Mitt Romney’s shift on gay rights was driven by anything other than political expediency in her new column, “The Ever-Devolving Mitt Romney:”
Poor Mitt Romney.
The Republican presidential candidate has changed everything but his gender to appease his new best friends on the far right.
He used to be pro-choice; now he’s anti-choice.
He used to support gay rights, but now he’s against those, too.
He’s also against the health care plan he signed into law when he was governor of Massachusetts. Which means Mitt Romney opposes even Mitt Romney.
And what does he get for all his Gumby-with-great-hair flexibility? Seriously upstaged by a pontificating pooh-bear named Newt, who is leading in every poll that includes the word “Romney.”
This is what happens when your values are more elastic than the waistband in a pair of Haggar Work to Weekend pants. Nobody who has to squirm into that stretch looks good in it.
