    No. Most politicians tell what ever lie is convenient at the time. This clip is out there to make Romney look stupid. It`s the same tactic used against Bush. Conveniently, everyone has forgotten that Obama claimed to have visited 58 states. In any case, people say stupid things all the time. Get over it.

    Nobody remembers everything they say. But I think what this is pointing out is someone asked his thoughts or stance on an issue and he has to try to remember what he has said in the past instead of just knowing what his stance is.

    Since you are off topic, I have a question, just to establish a baseline. Did you think Bush 2 was a good president?

    All politicians are actors. We should be more worried about the ones that are really good at it.

    If anyone is wondering about the context of this quote, I can explain it. Romney was asked about the Super PAC ad storyboards that were published by the NY Times yesterday, which attempted to make Reverend Wright an issue in this year`s election. Romney said he didn`t think that it was fair to bring that up and hoped both campaigns would keep the discussion elevated.

    A reporter reminded him that he already brought up Reverend Wright earlier this year in a criticism of the President, so Romney said "I`m not familiar precisely with exactly what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was."

    Thanks @FP: It`s good to know what was asked and why his answer is actually PERFECTLY FINE eh?

    SO: If asked about something he said about a year ago, Obama will INSTANTLY know exactly what it was! Oh yeah! And pigs will fly too! Right @madest?

    I know why @madest hates Romney so much: Shirt.Tucked.In! For crying out loud!

    @5Cats

    Yep. I have no problem with this. I think the reason it is so indicative of romney is because he does change positions so much. Even you have to admit that. But I honestly don`t really blame him for that. He is super moderate. So he had to go way right in the primary to compete with those guys and now he`ll swing back to moderate. Plus he needs to differentiate himself from Obama even though he at one point agreed with a lot of stuff he can`t now. Just the nature of the business.

    I have a theory that if 5cats and Madest ever came into physical contact they would cancel each other out and create a singularity that would destroy the Earth.

    I`d say whether it`s "perfectly fine" or not depends upon your perspective. If Obama were caught being a hypocrite like that, 5Cats and Crakrjak would be all over him. Remember John Kerry? Republicans practically invented the word "flip-flop" to attack him, only now the shoe is on the other foot.

    @patchy: LOLZ! Lets strive to avoid that, just in case!
    @FP: We disliked Kerry because he was a blatent liar. John Edwards (VP) was even worse! Flip flop? I suppose he did that some, all politicians do, Bush included.

    Your party: adapts to the times
    The other party: flip-flops!
    lolz! Same as it ever was...

    Bush Campaign used "flip-flopper" to describe Sen. Kerry

    Honestly, I don`t care whether Romney changes his mind on issues. As you said, most politicians do that. What should be looked at is whose interests will be served should they be elected. I won`t vote for Romney; he`s proven to only be interested in serving the interests of the successful.

    Obama? I`m not sure if I`ll vote for him yet. I`m disappointed in a lot of areas.

    They both are just freaking awefull choices. The US is worse off than we are. One wanted 7.4 trillion in new dept and gay marrige. The other one can`t wait to steal as much as he can from everyone and change the rules alright. Which rules? The ones where you have freedom? Or perhaps it`s gone already... pulled out from under you. Now there is the rock and the hard place if I ever seen it.

    I have nothing against Reagan and I was too young to judge him at the time he was president. But he more than quadrupled the national debt, added almost 75,000 federal employees, raised taxes 11 times, increased federal spending, and worked at gun control. Those are all things that republicans today would go nuts about. Isn`t that a bit of revisionist history?

    Reagan also thought that high income earners should have their taxes raised.

    "Reagan also thought that high income earners should have their taxes raised."

    Which is why he cut their taxes from around 50% to 35%.

    Good catch, AJ. I misspoke. I guess that`s what happens when I try to post here and work at the same time. My intent was to say that he thought top income earners should have fewer loopholes. My bad.

    "My intent was to say that he thought top income earners should have fewer loopholes."

    Yeah. That was the intent of his tax cuts. To make the overall burden lower, but close the loopholes. It was brilliant.

    HG: The democrat controlled congress, at the leadership of Tip O`Neal were responsible for most of the legislation at the time. However Reagan worked across the aisle and got things done that turned this nation around at a critical time.

    Reagan also lowered taxes which got the economy moving again and that move actually raised more revenue for the government because capital investment rose significantly.
