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.
