Mitt Romney denies flip-flops

Politics,Beltway Confidential,Charlie Spiering

A slightly irritated Romney worked through a Fox News interview yesterday with Bret Baier but when the conversation turned to his changed position on the issues, he disagreed that he changes his positions on the issues based on political calculations.

Bair asked Romney about his changing positions on climate change, abortion, immigration, and gay rights, and asked him how the American people could trust him on the important issues.

"Your list is just not accurate," replied Romney to an visibly surprised Baier, "So, one, we're going to have to be better informed about my views on issues."

Baier pointed out video ads released by Romney's opponents attacking Romney as a flip-flopper.

"I'm glad to see that the Democrat ads are breaking through," Romney said cynically adding that most videos took "only snippets of his remarks, taking them out of context."

Romney, however, admitted that he did change his mind on abortion, reminding Fox viewers that Ronald Reagan and George Bush had done the same.
