One still waiting for a boom

As Andrew Sullivan says of Mitt Romney:

The record nonetheless shows Romney as once passionately pro-choice, a man who vowed a decade and a half ago to be more pro-gay than Ted Kennedy, a man who embraced and shaped universal healthcare on lines close to identical to Obama’s but now vows to repeal it, a man who opposed tax loopholes before Obama targeted them, a figure so shape-shifty it’s impossible to know how he’d govern, except by sticking a wet finger into the air. There’s a reason the GOP is uncomfortable with him, why Perry did so well in fundraising this past quarter, why the idiotic Christie-fever ran wild, and why Herman Cain, of all people, is now neck and neck with a former governor.

“This is starting to hurt where my feelings should be.”
