Which is the real Mitt Romney? The ruthless Bain Capital financial operator? The moderate and competent governor of Massachusetts? The radical right-winger of the Republican primaries? Or the compassionate conservative of last night’s debate?
Poor President Obama was at a loss, because he was debating the positions Mitt Romney took a couple of weeks ago, not what Romney was saying last night. I am old enough to remember the New Nixon, supposedly a kinder, gentler version of the previous Richard Nixon. Now we have a New Romney. As I did with Nixon, I wonder how long this will last.
