Now Mitt says he's with the tea party
Earlier this year, Mitt Romneybot was trying to steer clear
of the tea party:
As the former Massachusetts governor lays the groundwork for a possible second presidential run, he has largely shunned Tea Party activists in key primary states, including the state he must win if he enters the race, New Hampshire. [...] Romney declined requests for an interview. His advisers said it is too early to speculate on the Tea Party movement’s influence on the Republican primary field or how Romney may seek to expand his appeal.
And now that Rick Perry's in the race?
“The great thing about the Tea Party movement is that Republicans of all backgrounds and interests have all coalesced around a few common themes, which is government is too big and spending too much,” Romney said. “I happen to agree with that. You’re seeing the Republican Party united in a way that I haven’t seen before. [...] Tea Party folks stand for government being too big and too intrusive and they want it smaller. And I agree with them.”
Gawd. Even for a hack like Mitt Romney, that's an embarrassing display of flip-flopping ass-kissery.
