Romney’s Flip-Flop Olympics Trials
“Met Romney last week,” he tweets. “Tough O Chicago pros will be hard to beat unless he drops old friends from team and hires some real pros. Doubtful.”

While voters prepare to start paying serious attention to 2012 election gymnastics, flip-flop records are being set by Romney’s whirling dervish moves to the point that pundits are wondering if the President, with his puny past record of reversals on the individual mandate, stands a chance of competing.
