In the first debate, and in the days since, Mitt Romney has tried to convince the American people he’s someone other than the "severely conservative" candidate who has spent the past six years running for president on dangerous ideas that would hurt the middle class, women, and seniors.
It would be a mistake to label this as flip-flopping. This is a deliberate attempt to hide and even misrepresent the real positions he’s held loudly and unabashedly during this entire race — a last-minute effort to "make the sale" just like he did in the boardroom to close a deal.
At the debate tonight, Romney has a choice: be honest about the positions he has set out during the six years he has been running for president, or take the same tack as he did at the first debate and pretend like they never existed.
The most blatant example of Romney doing this at the last debate was when he claimed that he didn’t have a $5 trillion tax plan that he couldn’t pay for, and that he wouldn’t cut taxes for those at the top at the expense of the middle class. That’s just not how Romney’s tax plan would work, as President Bill Clinton explains in this video. Watch it, and share it with others so they have the facts about Romney’s tax plan:
