Newt Gingrich said that Mitt Romney would say anything to get nominated. Both he and Rick Santorum wanted Romney's conservative credentials examined, and Romney promised that he was not just "conservative" but he was "severely conservative". Of course, neither Gingrich nor Santorum believe him, yet Romney was able to secure the presidential nomination for the Republican Party and he adopted all the Tea Party positions demanded of him.

Now with the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney has started to re-position himself fot the general election after many months of dropping poll numbers and what looked like the end of the Republican Party. The switch seemed to take and Romney began to pull ahead of Barack Obama in the polls. The Democrats cried foul; Romney was now not telling the truth.

However, perhaps Gingrich and Santorum were right and Romney wasn't telling the truth to the extreme members of his own party. This is a real conundrum for both sides. Is Mitt Romney "severely conservative" as he told Republican voters during the primary or is he a "Massachuetts moderate" as we see today?

Obviously, Romney is many things to many people.

A few truths:
Mitt is a political moderate. He is not a partisan politician. He will not rescind or substantially change ObamaCare. He will be aligned with the LDS stand on abortion (none except for health of mother, incest, rape). He will not lead a comprehensive immigration policy, but would beef up border security. He may increase military spending. He is not likely to raise taxes on the wealthy. But he will soon find that increased military spending along with no new taxes will increase the annual deficit along with the National Debt.

In general, he does not have an inclination to lead in a partisan fashion. He does have an inclination to work with both parties to reach compromise.

As a very wealthy person (in top 1% of American income), he does not know much about how lower and middle class Americans live.

Romney is whatever he thinks it will take to get people to vote for him. Don't like what he just said? Wait 5 minutes and he'll say the exact opposite. He doesn't care about people; he just cares about getting elected. He's all things to all people, and no truth in anythng he says or does.
