Mitt Romney and "flip-flopping:" Quote of the Week

Or maybe of the year, for presidential campaign watchers:

Mitt Romney? Yes. Characterological cheerfulness, personal stability and a good brain would be handy to have around. He hasn't made himself wealthy by seeing the world through a romantic mist. He has a sophisticated understanding of the challenges we face in the global economy. I personally am not made anxious by his flip-flopping on big issues because everyone in politics gets to change his mind once. That is, you can be pro-life and then pro-choice but you can't go back to pro-life again, because if you do you'll look like a flake. The positions Mr. Romney espouses now are the positions he will stick with. He has no choice.
--Peggy Noonan

That's probably the best, most concise response to the "flip-flopper" charge that can be made.

Precisely! Flip-flopping is a 360-degree turn, and is absent here. So Romney is a Flipper, not a Flopper. 180-degrees and holding. Conversions are welcome, deceptions are political suicide. Romney’s political cement is now set for the long haul.
