Mitt Romney versus Mitt Romney
It’s one thing to know, intellectually, that Mitt Romney contradicts himself every time he talks. But there’s a whole lot more impact when you see a bunch of Romney’s previous statements — each one canceling out the one before it — all laid out on the same page.
Mitt Romney was the moderate governor of one the most liberal states, and now that he’s gunning for the White House, he’s running to the right of George W. Bush. As Nicholas D. Kristof asks, “which is the real Romney?”
A lot of moderate and swing voters are assuming that Romney is actually moderate and pragmatic, and he was just pretending to be a Far Right droolbucket so he could get the Republican nomination. But what if it’s the other way around? What if Mitt Romney was only pretending to be a moderate so he could get elected governor of Massachusetts, and the real Mitt Romney actually believes all of his Wall-Street-humping bring-back-the-Salem-Witch-Trials rhetoric?
Anyway, please click on the linked article and take Nicholas D. Kristof’s little quiz. He lists ten quotations, and you have to guess whether each quote was uttered by Mitt Romney or Barack Obama.
After you’ve made your guesses, scroll down to the end of the article to get the answers.
