During the 2008, Mitt was a vociferous opponent of LGBT equality, which was a flip flop from his previous pro-gay positions. Now, as Romney begins his next campaign for President, he’s allegedly retooling his views again.
Last week, the Boston Phoenix reported on the next incarnation of Mitt, “New and Improved Romney”:
“He got himself caught up in the social-issues debate,” says Bill Achtmayer, chairman of business-strategy consultants the Parthenon Group and a supporter of Romney, his former colleague at Bain Consulting. “It diverted people’s attention from what he does bring to the table.”
As a result, the new Romney is now de-emphasizing social issues like abortion, same-sex marriage, and illegal immigration. He has made no public comment, for instance, about last week’s announcement that top military leaders intend to end the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, has scrupulously avoided association with the Tea Party movement, and has refrained from backing conservatives that other presidential hopefuls have endorsed, such as Doug Hoffman in New York or Marco Rubio in Florida.
And, come on, Mitt. Even Dick and Liz Cheney are on board.
