Romney’s Flip Flops Turning Into Flop Flops
People can understand someone changing their mind about an issue. We all have after learning more about the facts. But changing your mind about almost every issue leads people to believe that you are disingenuous, a liar, a person that tells people what they want to hear depending on the audience. People on both sides of an issue have seen this in Mitt Romney.
Take, for instance, what Mitt Romney said, just this past January, about mothers on welfare as opposed to what his wife Ann Romney said about making a CHOICE to stay home with her FIVE children. Ann could make a choice because she was able to financially. She didn’t need to find a job to help her family’s finances and she wasn’t the only “bread winner” so she was able to be a stay at home mom. Not many women in the past 30 years could make that choice.
Here’s what Mitt Romney said about the Moms on Welfare:
Women who stay at home to raise their children should be given federal assistance for child care so that they can enter the job market and “have the dignity of work,” Mitt Romney said in January, undercutting the sense of extreme umbrage he showed when Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen quipped last week that Ann Romney had not “worked a day in her life.”
“The dignity of working” seems to only apply to women on welfare or middle class women. If you are a privileged woman who does not need to work outside the home, what Romney said does not apply.
And here’s another video of Romney talking about Middle Class Families from 1994:
In this video he acknowledged that both men and women have to work. There isn’t a “choice” as Ann Romney made, for the woman to stay at home. (And I’d like to add here that what Ann Romney said about her choice insulted me as a woman who did not have that choice and worked two jobs to get by! I’m not the only woman who feels that way.)
Here’s a video that lists many of Romney’s Flip Flops through the years:
How can you trust a person that Flip Flops so many times? Where will he stand on issues if he becomes President? He is even flip flopping on his own father:

Here’s a segment from MSNBC’s Alex Wagner’s show “NOW” and her panel discussing Romney’s ‘Open Mic’ talk on doing away with several Federal Agencies, including the one his dad, George Romney headed:
If Romney can disavow what his father has done then he will have no problem disassembling any of the good programs we have in place. Nor will he and a GOP Congress put new ones in place.
