Flip-flop season

The WaPo has Digby making hay of watching the GOP explain Romney, Giuliani, et. al.
Update: oh, and by the way, in case you think the flip-flopping charge would work against any of the Republicans, think again. The press have declared the issue dead since all the Republicans are flip-floppers, so it's not a useful issue anymore. Indeed, it's now called "evolving."
Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who is supporting Romney in the presidential race, said that he struggled when he arrived in Congress in 1999 with trying to reconcile lessons learned in the private sector with votes he was taking on the floor of the House and, as a result, some of his policy stances evolved over the years.

DeMint said Romney had been far more consistent than he had been portrayed by the media. On abortion, DeMint said that Romney's "values have always been the same" and that when Romney "saw his political position was out of sync with his personal values, he changed it."
