Romney is at it big time.  Even before the Republican primary, he and every single Republicans clobbered President Obama over ObamaCare.  Statements after statements about how he is going to repeal and replace ObamaCare.  Now, guest what...he is for ObamaCare.  Ok, he did not say he is for all of it, but he has soften his stance.  He now claimed that he will only repeal the part of the bill he does not like and he will keep some part of it.  I am not surprise of this switch because we all know Mr. Romney has no core. Issues after issues, he flip once he knew the opinion of the public.  I will only post the link of the article, that way everyone can read it and interrupt it for themselves.  The link is from the huffingtonpost: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/....  

While, I do like leaders who are smart and flexible enough to evolve with the issues, I do not want leaders who panders for vote.  We have seen President Obama evolve on issues but most of the time, his evolution is bring to populace with him on the issues.  Healthcare and Gay Rights are two such issues.  First, Gay Rights, his evolution was slow, but he did it when it was not popular and when he did the nation follows.  Second, on healthcare, he got it passed even though many opposed and others (supporters) were angry because he did not go far enough.  However, he rode out the storm and as people began to realize that even though the healthcare bill may not be perfect, it is still better than nothing; furthermore, the foundation is set for future modification to the law.  He achieve many more things, but I highlighted these two to show a leader who is willing to lead.  Romney on the other hand...well you decide.  We all know where he stand.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    First, Gay Rights, his evolution was slow, but he did it when it was not popular and when he did the nation follows.
    Factually incorrect. When President Obama came out in favor of marriage equality he did so when already 51% of Americans polled supported it. The American people led the President on this one. A much higher percentage of registered Democrats supported same-sex marriage rights. The party led the President on this issue.

    While he deserves much credit and respect for being the first sitting President to endorse marriage equality for all people, his position was hardly unpopular enough that he had to "bring the nation with him".

    That being said, his endorsement of marriage equality may have, and continue to, bring those once against it around to supporting it--which is the leadership part of what he has said on this issue. But the fact remains that public opinion evolved faster than the President's political evolution (I have no doubt that personally, he has supported equality all along).

      of marriage equality changed the media narrative, and pushed the idea forward, as you state. It was also considered risky in the black community, but you're right, he didn't move til it was ripe politically.
      All I can say is that in order to get elected and be in a position to actually change things, he has to take political advise and make decisions that do in fact cut one way or another.
      There will always be an angle to criticize the President on every issue, every day, every decision.
      As opposed to the way Mitt Romney does it.
