Romney reverses himself, supports anti-union law

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) A day after he refused to endorse an Ohio ballot
measure that limits public employee union rights, Republican
presidential hopeful Mitt Romney said Wednesday that he is "110
percent" behind the effort.

While he was in Ohio on Tuesday, Romney seemed to distance himself
from anti-union measures that have lost popularity in recent months.
Campaigning a day later, the former Massachusetts governor told
reporters that he supports the ballot measure aimed at restricting
collective bargaining rights for state employees.

"I'm sorry if I created any confusion in that regard. I fully support
Gov. (John) Kasich's I think it's called Question Two in Ohio. Fully
support that," Romney said after visiting a local GOP office in the
Washington suburbs. "Actually, on my website, I think back as early as
April, I laid out that I support Question Two and Gov. Kasich's effort
to restrict collective bargaining in Ohio."

Romney's rivals criticized him for not supporting the measure, which
he previously endorsed but has seen its popularity falter.

Once again, in the face of the ninety percent movement, Romney brags about how he strongly supports crushing employee rights after cowardly ducking the issue in Ohio where the issue is front and center. Not only is he a right winger and flip flopper, but he is a chicken hawk weeney.
