Most politicians are bad, but Romney takes flip flopping to a whole different level. He just appears to have no core values whatsoever. He's now trying to take back his 47% comments after just saying he stood behind them. This guy truly scares me because we honestly have no idea what he really believes in besides his twin obsessions of making money and the Cult of Mormonism.
Here's the thing with debates (and politicians in general)...only ~7% of winning/losing comes from what they actually say. ~38% comes from how they say it and ~55% comes from their non-verbal communication (i.e. where they are looking while the other person is talking).
