    And if this was what he did, he should have just said so. The story is his multiple incongruent explanations. Since he's given so many different explanations, there's no way to tell what his real motivation was. But that's just the way it is with most anything to do with Mitt.

    •  I think he has said exactly that. (1+ / 0-)

      See, for example, here:

      "In Massachusetts, if you register as an independent, you can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary," said Romney, who until he made an unsuccessful run for Senate in 1994 had spent his adult life as a registered independent. "When there was no real contest in the Republican primary, I’d vote in the Democrat primary, vote for the person who I thought would be the weakest opponent for the Republican."

        so for years he was really a republican but registered independent just to play games with his one little vote in the primaries?

        It may be what actually motivated him, but he sure said something different to Massachusetts voters when he was running a statewide, not a national, campaign.  

        There's no case for defending Romney on this.
