    Eugene2 has it right. Romney isn't a flip-flopper. He flipped from bad to good on several issues, but he hasn't flopped back. I think he should use this as a campaign slogan. I'm a flipper. I used to be wrong on a couple of things, and now I'm right.
    The funny thing is that Perry was campaigning for one of the most virulent pro-choice candidates ever in Al Gore. And Gingrich, too, has flipped on some issues, including global warming. And he's not exactly conservative when it comes to illegal immigration. True conservatives argue against rewarding any illegal immigration while at the same time saying we need more legal immigration. The federal government needs to make it easier to get a green card.
    And who does ICE send back to Mexico? People who came her at the age of 2, got married to an American, had American kids and then had the misfortune of serving as propaganda bait for ICE, which makes sure the media knows when one of these guys is deported to a country where he can't speak the language.

    The previous posts against Romney are interesting; however, according to polls Romney has the best chance to beat President Obama in 2012 since he appeals more to independents than any other candidate. Drop the "flip-flop" tag, he is actually more just a "flip" which is a politican that evolves in the correct direction. Gingrich is a bigger flip-flopper than Mitt and has the personal and moral baggage that you will never find in Romney's closet.

    Why do 3 of the previous posts mention religion in some fashion? Maybe his religion is their problem with Romney? Sad if it comes down to that!

    Moral, honest, hard-working, presidential, business expert .... just what this country needs right now. Tell your friends!

    Romney the obscure. Romney the flip-flopper. Romney the opportunist.

    Romney's only consistent position is the one he takes in regard to his Church.

    He honestly believes has has literally been "anointed" to be a leader in the Mormon Global Church that will soon become the single political and religious authority on the earth!

    So what is there to hide, I wonder?

    Let's face it, Romney is shielding himself from media scrutiny. Sean Hannity's shortages of opinions on the topic and no one correct answer, don't tend to lean toward full disclosure of conflicts, caused by relationships between politicians and on-air reporters, just his lies, sound bites and half truth's, to cover-up the fact's and real truth, that his Party is as crooked as a $3 bill. Plus has no place in any Office along with their white colar crimes. Crony capitalism is the dark side of American politics and economics. The level of corruption in Washington is staggering, growing, and rife in both parties. The White House and Congress dispense billions of dollars of favors to political supporters like a non-stop vending machine. Congressional insider trading and stimulus corruption, the phrase "crony capitalism" is getting noticed. If you are a member of Congress and you sit on the defense committee, you are free to trade defense stock as much as you want to. If you're on the Senate banking committee you can trade bank stock as much as you want, and that regularly goes on in all these committees. Right Sen. Hatch?. Same with Glenn Beck also.

    'WASHINGTON Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney responded Tuesday to complaints that is shielding himself from media scrutiny, agreeing to more in-depth interviews and holding his third modest press availability in four days.' - Article

    Well, that's good.

    Because previously...

    *'Romney campaign battles Dems, Press over issue of transparency' - By Barrett Haake - NBC News - 11/17/11

    'There it was this morning, on the front page of the Boston Globe, a headline no campaign ever wants to read: Before leaving office, Romney staff wiped records.'

    Mitt Romney was NOT willing to share information.

    I guess Mitt Romney, changed his mind.
