    Can you name which policies are making it better? That is what this election is about.

I think he would be a poor president, thus my vote will not go to either of them.

    What he's doing isn't "adapting" it's flip-flopping.

    I already showed you the video. You've seen it yourself. Romeny says he will war with Iran even if he doesn't have the approval of Congress.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    No trouble at all. And some of these aren't even flips, they're down right lies.

    That's all I need to vote for him...because the fact is, it doesn't matter what he says he wants to do as long as it meshes with the desires of the Republican Congress.

    I didn't see that part. Do you have a link to a written version of the speech from which you can cut and paste that particular quote.

    I don't hink it exists.

    First on the "flip-flops": You have shown hit pieces from biased sources comparing what the black haired young Romney says to what the grey haired current Romney says. Much of what he says is the natural progression of a position as one ages.

    In my personnal understanding of the Abortion issue, as an example, I cannot get away from the fact that a life in the womb is a life and therefore a person. When younger, that meant I could not support abortion. Being older now, I realize that I am not personally willing to take care of any unwanted child. As a result, my position, politically and socially has changed to the one endorsed by our case law. I feel it's not a morally supportable position, but it's what I am willing to support.

    Is that a "flip-flop"? Maybe so. My actual feeling on the sanctity of life is unchanged, but the political and social outcome of my inner debate leaves me on the other side of the issue.

    Why do I support Romney? First and foremost, because Obama has produced the worst results in the history of the office. He is a complete and utter failure in this position. He has single handedly stopped the economy and is dogmatically sticking to an agenda of failed ideas and bad policies. His administration is one that routinely breaks laws to enforce political agenda and he uses the power of the government to intimidate and harass private citizens. That is only why I oppose Obama.

    Romney has produced an unbroken record of accomplishment in all of his endeavors. He is obviously a talented businessman and is obviously a gifted administrator and executive. In all of the attack ads from the opposition, and there have been plenty, they twist facts into fiction and try to produce a picture of a monster, but they all fall flat because the guy is a good and principled man who is looking to get the best for those that he cares for.

    He cares very deeply for Americans and America. He has no grand dreams of driving back the Seas like King Knute and the Big 0. His dream is that this generation pays its debts and the next generation gets a better future.

    That is what a government leader is supposed to do. Take as little money as is needed to do the job, then do the job well and allow his people to be the best they can be.

    Yes, a transcript of that video doesn't exist.

    Romney's desire to invade Iran without congressional approval, as was proven in that video, is quite real, however.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.
