Mitt Romney flip flopping heads
Mitt flip-flopped on something again? Must be a day that ends in "y."
You know it's been a very, very bad day, week ... er, month for Mitt Romney when his patented flip-flop on something stupid is barely newsworthy. Romney would probably love to go back to the days of just seeing "flip-flop" in the headlines. But he is, after all, Mitt Romney, flip-flopper extraordinaire, so let's give him a little reprieve from the non-stop hammering on his humiliation at the Republican National Convention, his despicable and false attack on the president while Americans were under attack in Libya, his caught-on-video disdain for 47 percent of America, his sinking poll numbers—and of course, those still-lingering questions about his taxes.

Romney in May:

"'The View' is high risk because of the five women on it," Romney said at the time. "Only one is conservative and four are sharp-tongued and not conservative, Whoopi Goldberg in particular. Although the last time I was on the show, she said to me, 'You know what? I think I could vote for you.' And I said, 'I must have done something really wrong.'"
And now:
The governor has been to "The View" and had a wonderful visit, and his team confirms this morning that the Romneys would love to once more join the sharp-tongued chatter in October.
Being Mitt Romney, the man who can turn a simple photo-op with our allies into an international crisis, he's now getting bested by the "sharp-tongued" women of The View, including by—dear sweet lord—Sherri Shepherd, who not only doesn't believe in evolution, but also thinks maybe the earth is flat:
"This is just pre-season," Shepherd said. "If you can't handle four sharp-tongued women, how are you going to handle the country?"
Good question.

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.
