Hi. I'm Mitt Romney. I'd Like to Be Your President. I'M Crazy, TOO.
Hi there. I'm Mitt Romney. You might remember me as the square-jawed, independent-minded, "do what's right and take the political fallout" guy who was Governor of Massachusetts. I'm the guy who fought for and won insurance coverage for practically every man, woman and child in the state, even going so far as to make it illegal to NOT have insurance coverage.
In a time where most Republicans were anti-gay to the point of homophobia, I was in FAVOR of gay rights. In a time where most Republicans think life begins at the moment Papa gets a chubby, I was IN FAVOR of a woman's right to make her own choices in the area of reproduction. I was against some aspects of "abstinence-only" sex education and supported embryonic stem cell research.
As you consider your choices for our party's presidential nominee in 2012, there are four words I'd like you to keep in mind.
"I'm sorry. I've changed!"
No. Really. I have. Quit booing me.
Didn't I make that 180-degree turn from pro-choice to anti-choice? Didn't I decide that being gay is bad? Didn't I...
OK, WHO THREW THAT TOMATO?
Back to the topic. The point is, if my career has demonstrated ANYTHING it's that I will DO or SAY ANYTHING YOU PEOPLE WANT ME TO to get the NOMINATION! REALLY!
If you Tea Partiers announced tomorrow that you wanted the next president to pass a law against the teaching of evolution in schools, I'D PASS IT!
If you Tea Partiers believe cavemen rode around on dinosaurs and think "The Flintstones" was an accurate representation of prehistoric man... I BELIEVE THAT TOO!!!
If I flipped on abortion, gay rights and embryonic stem cell research, why WOULDN'T I dismantle a health care system that is almost CHAPTER AND VERSE the SAME health care plan that I created that is incredibly popular and is working oh, so well for the people of Massachusetts? If YOU hate it... SO DO I!
OK, now you're throwing flip-flops at me. That's so mature.
People, if you'll stop throwing things for a moment and try to keep the screaming and profanities down to a dull roar, you will HEAR me when I say I HAVE SEEN THE ERROR OF MY WAYS! I am ONE OF YOU now!Continued on the next page
