For anyone who wasn’t able to catch Mitt Romney’s speech on faith, I recommend that you go to his website to watch it. I believe it was the best speech by a politician thus far. I never had an qualms about his faith to begin, but if I did, I think the speech would help a little bit.
Many reviews of his speech claim that Romney looked more presidential than any other candidate to date. I would agree, yet it really isn’t that important. What is important are the issues of course (unfortunately, many people don’t realize this).
But what about flip-flopping? Oh, the dreaded term that destroyed Kerry’s campaign. Well, it appears that Mitt has potentially dug himself a hole (should anyone pick up on it):
“I do not define my candidacy by my religion. A person should not be elected because of his faith, nor should he be rejected because of his faith,” – Mitt Romney, at the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum today.
And then there is this:
“We need to have a person of faith lead the country,” – Mitt Romney, February 17, 2007.
