One of the biggest problems Mitt Romney faced in 2008 was his, shall we say, malleability on several major political issues. It had many Republicans wondering who the real Mitt was; many still have that concern.
What the Washington Examiner found won’t help (emphasis added):
This can’t be good for his flip-flopping image. The Boston Phoenix has discovered that potential 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney has made edits to his 2010 book “No Apology” to be more in line with today’s Tea Party rhetoric.
In the original book, Romney says that President Obama’s 2009 stimulus package will accelerate recovery, but could do more. In the newly-released paperback version of the book Romney goes after it. “This is the first time government has declared war on free enterprise,” he writes, according to the Phoenix. He’s also changed his tone regarding ObamaCare, now calling for its repeal. (As Massachusetts governor Romney signed off on a similar health care plan).
Oh, and for all you other Ken Cuccinelli fans out there, I remind you of this comment from Romney during the 2008 campaign:
I like mandates. If you can afford health insurance, you should buy it.
Yes, he actually said that.
