What other positions can Romney change?

Mitt Romney has apparently learned from Barack Hussein Obama's adoption of radical Leftist positions after running as a moderate in 2008. Romney, who is widely suspected to be another big government liberal, has been trying to portray himself as a conservative to wrap up the Republican nomination for President. On Wednesday, senior Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom went on CNN and announced that Romney is an 'etch-a-sketch' (one is pictured above for any non-Americans who have never seen one before), whose positions can be erased and restarted from scratch once he has the nomination sewn up (Hat Tip: Memeorandum).

Let's go to the videotape.

What positions might Romney change? Support for Israel? Moving the US embassy to Jerusalem or something more substantive like support for the 'Palestinians'? How can this candidate be trusted? Has anyone looked deeply into Romney's associations to see what he might be hiding that might come out after the Republican convention or after the general election?

Recall this post from the 2008 campaign.

While I would still vote for Romney over Obama (at least Romney will be accountable for the next four years if he is elected), I find the idea that a candidate feels free to change all his positions once he has the nomination sewn up dishonest and undemocratic.

Carl, I like Romney because he has a strong record on the economy, and I think he can beat Obama.

Santorum, Gingrich or Palin will lose to Obama.

Having said that, you are correct. Obama had a long record on Israel(not necessarily good), while W had a good record on Israel, but it was fairly entity. Romney says he is pro-Israel and I have no reason to doubt him. But you never know. I also like Romney because he seems to believe in traditional americana when we were great(if you know what I mean).

Well, I grew up in the 50's.

But that America is gone.

Think of it this way.

1952 to 2012 is 70 years.

70 years backwards from 1952 is, well, 1882.

The more things change the more they stay the same, etc. But if a voter in 1952 was looking for a way to restore the solid values of 1882 they'd be at a loss.

Carl, Mitt Romney has done a great deal of thinking on foreign policy issues. His advisers include John Bolton and Whalid Phares, among a great many other a-list folks.

You might want to read this.

I'm not worried about his pro-Israel bonifides in the least.
