Romney’s Right to Be Wrong

It’s only Monday, but I may already have found my “quote of the week.” From The Washington Monthy’s Steve Benen:
Again, there’s nothing inherently offensive about a political figure changing his or her mind once in a while. Policy makers come to one conclusion, they gain more information, and then they reach a different conclusion.

But this only works when there are sincere changes of heart. It’s something else entirely when pandering politicians reinvent themselves, sometimes more than once, as part of a cynical, calculated ploy. This isn’t indicative of an open mind; it’s evidence of a character flaw.
You can keep track of Republican Willard “Mitt” Romney’s redundancy of flip-flops at Multiple Choice Mitt or Which Mitt.
