If Mitt Romney gets the GOP nomination for President the debates will be awfully boring:
Moderator: What do you think of Universal Health care?
Obama: I supported it for Obamacare
Romney: I supported it for Romneycare
Moderator: What is your position on global Warming?
Obama: The Scientific Consensus proves that it is one of mankind’s biggest threats
Romney: The Scientific Consensus proves that it is one of mankind’s biggest threats

“I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that,” he told a crowd of about 200 at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire.
“It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.”
According to the latest polls, Romney leads the GOP New Hampshire primary field by a wide margin.
In addressing climate change and energy policy, Romney sounded just like President Obama, he called on the United States to break its dependence on foreign oil, and expand alternative energies including solar, wind, nuclear and clean coal (he didn’t mention domestic drilling).
“I love solar and wind (power) but they don’t drive cars. And we’re not all going to drive Chevy Volts,” he said referring to electric cars.
The United States can not go it alone in attempting to trim emissions levels and give a free pass to countries such as China and Brazil, Romney said. “It’s not called American warming, it’s called global warming,” he said.
Actually its called a hoax developed to facilitate world-wide redistribution of income
Software developer Michael Hillinger, 60, of Hanover, New Hampshire, posed the climate change question.
Romney’s answer provided plenty of wiggle-room, Hillinger said, but “he is taking a more forthright stand than any of the other candidates.”
…..Asked to lay out a specific plan for the economy, Romney outlined seven points but referred to his 2010 book “No Apology” as containing his policy ideas in details.
“It’s a good book. I’ll give you a discount,” he quipped.
The Guy is rich as all hell and he doesn’t give details of his economic plan so he can pimp his book? Well at least he is a capitalist.
Romney skirted a question about whether doctors who perform abortions, or women who have abortions, should face criminal sanctions if Roe v. Wade, the 1973 U.S. law that protects abortion rights, were overturned.
“I am pro-life,” he said, adding that decisions on abortion law should be returned to state jurisdiction.
Abortion is one of several issues on which Romney’s critics accuse him of flip-flopping over the years. In the past, including during his race in 2002 to be Massachusetts governor, he has said he supports the substance of Roe v. Wade.
Put it all together and you have candidate Newt Romney. He supports some progressive policies and flip-flopped away from others. Why is he running for the GOP nomination? Wouldn’t a campaign as a moderate Democrat be more appropriate?
