ISSUES (See his Plan, for each item; use this Plans Links/Directory. Also, some videos are on the issues. The issues are strictly fabricated and then repeated, whereas if you look deeper, into the provable, you'll see only an extraordinarily capable individual. For a good overview, see Contents/Links Romney. He is not actually a flip-flopper - A manufactured label that has stuck, but without substance. He has gradually solidified and modified his stands pretty quickly over a very few years of public service. Once he evolves, he sticks to it - and does not flip-flop. My conclusion: politicians have totally exaggerated. Read this to see my analysis. An unnecessary, irrelant issue: Why "Mormonism" Is Not A Threat (actually named The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints = "LDS") - Understand it first versus jumping to irrational conclusions, then use reasoning to decide if it is an issue. (It is not an issue and won't interfere with any other religion and not at all with the "job". It has nothing to do with the famous cult that was formed separately, without authorization and under a "guise".)
