Frum on Romney's Flip-Flops

Conservative blogger David Frum offers a fresh take on GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's changes of policy positions on Frum Forum.

It’s not Romney who is the flip-flopper. It’s the conservative movement. It was only three years ago that Jim DeMint was praising the Massachusetts healthcare plan. Post-2009, conservatives have flip-flopped on individual mandates, they have flip-flopped on monetary policy, in these cases they have adopted ever more extreme positions.

Yes Romney has had to shape-shift to keep pace, and that’s unfortunate. But don’t blame him – blame them.
