5. Now they do. That was not true when Romney was Governor, though.
Mass. had nothing to do with Romney's flip flops.

Romney says whatever he thinks saying at that moment will best accomplish his lifelong desire to become POTUS.

That is the root of all his flip flops.

When Romney ran against Senator Kennedy, you would have almost thought Romney was the more liberal candidate. Ditto when he ran for Governor of Massachusetts.

He began changing position after position part way through his term, around the time that Dummya had done very well (on a state by state electoral vote basis) against Kerry. I don't know if that is what inspired Romney to change. I just know that was roughly the timing.
