RAIN­ING ON ROM­NEY

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Grav­i­tas, strate­gic ad­jec­tives, a good hair­cut: Mitt Rom­ney struck a pol­ished pres­i­den­tial pos­ture June 2 when he an­nounced his run for the White House from a pic­turesque farm in New Hamp­shire. But Democrats are wait­ing to pounce, in­tent on con­vinc­ing vot­ers that the new can­di­date is both po­lit­i­cal flip-flop­per and op­por­tunist. Just in time for Mr. Rom­ney’s big re­veal, the New Hamp­shire Demo­cratic Party has crafted some damn­ing and likely per­sis­tent talk­ing points. Most chal­leng­ing: The dis­tilled list is short enough to be em­bla­zoned on a “The Two Sides of Mitt” T-shirt:

On the front: “Mitt Rom­ney: pro-health care re­form, pro-in­di­vid­ual man­date, pro-re­cov­ery act, pro-im­mi­gra­tion re­form, pro-cap and trade, pro-gay rights.” And nat­u­rally, on the back: “Mitt Rom­ney: anti-health care re­form, anti-in­di­vid­ual man­date, anti-re­cov­ery act, an­ti­im­mi­gra­tion re­form, anti-cap and trade, anti-gay rights.”
