Romney Flip Flops---Again!

Mitt Romney and the Republicans hope that you have amnesia and that you won't remember his statement in 2007. Luckily, New York Magazine has the quote from Reuters:

During the 2008 campaign, President Obama made clear his willingness to unilaterally go after Al Qaeda in sovereign Pakistani territory if necessary. Obama's opponents, including Hillary Clinton and John McCain, cast such trigger-happiness as evidence of his inexperience and naïveté. On August 2, 2007, Mitt Romney appeared to do the same. As Reuters reported:
"I do not concur in the words of Barack Obama in a plan to enter an ally of ours ... I don't think those kinds of comments help in this effort to draw more friends to our effort," Romney told reporters on the campaign trail ...

Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is one of the Republican front-runners, said U.S. troops "shouldn't be sent all over the world." He called Obama's comments "ill-timed" and "ill-considered."

"There is a war being waged by terrorists of different types and nature across the world," Romney said. "We want, as a civilized world, to participate with other nations in this civilized effort to help those nations reject the extreme with them."

Romney has done more flip flops than a gymnast!

>>>>  Ohio women want to know why Josh Mandel refused to endorse the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act and the renewal of the legislation called Violence Against Women Act???? Does Mandel think that women will let him get away with his lack of supporting women's issues????  Does Mandel think women should be paid less than men?  Does Mandel think that those accused of violence against women and their partners should not be punished?

Come on, Mandel!  Start answering some questions!
