I can't tell what Mitt believes. I'm not sure he believes anything. He just says what he thinks people want to hear. Unfortunately, a lot of people will vote for him because he's "Not Obama." One of my Republican friends said he didn't like Romney, but he sent him money because he was "Anyone but Obama."
Do I dare disturb the universe?

I just started reading Rachel Maddow's book "Drift." The part I'm on now is how Reagan would say incorrect things and when called on it instead of back pedaling he would double down. Eventually Reagan prevailed. Everyone who stuck with the truth including moderate Republicans got voted out and replaced with doctrinaire ideologues. Now the trick of saying the same lie over and over again until a lot of people believe it is part of the Republican play book as is attacking any of their own who give even an inch and sway from the party line.
It's a ken doll with multiple voice tapes that can be changed to suit his present audience. Pull his string and he'll saywhatever might get him elected by his present audience. The truth has nothing to do with it..nor does amnesia. ..it's pure 100% opportunism.
He does have a long history of saying what he thinks people want him to say, and it usually has little to do with reality, like his remarks about Obama Care when it is almost identical to what he crafted for Massachusetts.
