    Just means he's a bigger political target for a wider variety of assailants.

    Re: Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?

    he appears liberal to the tea party, but not to progressives.

    at one point in his career, he supported some liberal policies so that he could be governor. for the presidential primaries, he became a conservative. in the general, he'll run to the right of center.

    while i find that seedy, it's hardly uncommon.

    If it looks like a duck,quacks like a duck and acts like a duck then chances are it is a duck. Only a ****en moron, a liar or someone who has been living under a rock for the paste 20 years thinks Romney is not a liberal.

    The Mitt Romney Deception
    Despite recent statements across the country by Governor Mitt Romney claiming he's pro-life, pro-family and a committed conservative, a broad investigation of his actual statements, actions, and public positions over the years indicates that he has spent his entire career speaking and governing as a liberal - and that his new found conversion to conservatism very likely coincides with his candidacy for the presidency.

    Pro-illegal immigration
    Lawn work at Romney's home still done by illegal immigrants - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe
    Standing on stage at a Republican debate on the Gulf Coast of Florida last week, Mitt Romney repeatedly lashed out at rival Rudy Giuliani for providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants in New York City.

    Yet, the very next morning, on Thursday, at least two illegal immigrants stepped out of a hulking maroon pickup truck in the driveway of Romney's Belmont house, then proceeded to spend several hours raking leaves, clearing debris from Romney's tennis court, and loading the refuse back on to the truck.

    In fact, their work was part of a regular pattern. Despite a Globe story in Dec. 2006 that highlighted Romney's use of illegal immigrants to tend to his lawn, Romney continued to employ the same landscaping company -- until today. The landscaping company, in turn, continued to employ illegal immigrants.

    Why We Hate Mitt Romney So Much :: :: FITSNewsFITSNews
    Seriously, if this guy isn’t struck by lightning at some point during the 2008 campaign there’s no justice in the world. After all, it’s one thing to flip-flop on every issue under the sun in an effort to fool people into thinking you’re something you’re not, but Romney is now taking the art of bull***** to a whole new level - attacking people for doing the same stuff he did.

    Romney’s latest swipe alleges that Hizzoner Giuliani is “soft on immigration” because he turned New York into a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants.

    Of course what Romney failed to mention was that three cities in Massachusetts formally declared themselves to be “sanctuary cities” (i.e. cities that promise to provide government services to illegal immigrants) during his term as governor, and Romney did absolutely nothing about it.

    Sanctuary Cities Under Romney

    But Giuliani's campaign said that Romney's aggressive charge on this issue is inconsistent with Romney's record. While governor of Massachusetts from 2003 until 2007, three cities in Romney's home state – Somerville, Cambridge, and Orleans -- either declared or reissued declarations stating that they are in essence sanctuary cities.

    if a conservative was a member of a union and supported union labor within his or her company, would that individual then be accurately defined as a liberal?

    Mitt Romney is liberal in a lot of issues. If he was only liberal at one or two issues then it could be argued that he was a moderate.

    Not necessarily. Possibly though.

    Moderates are like Unicorns. They may have existed at one time but there aren't any real ones around these days.

    This is like saying that Chevys are good cars because nobody likes them.

    Re: Is Mitt Romney a Liberal?

    I believe Romney is neither liberal nor conservative, he will take the position that is political expedient at the time. When he ran against Ted Kennedy he professed to be more liberal than him, now that he is the presumptive nominee of the Republican party for president he has taken conservative positions. He just wants to be president and he will say anything in order to fulfill that task. He wants desperately to do what his father was unsuccessful at doing.
