“I believe that abortion should be safe & legal in this country.” ~ Mitt Romney {Video}

Yes, Mitt said that.

Was he referring to this country? These United States of America? Uh, yes.

He also said other non-Romney-ish things not that long ago like:

“I believe the world is getting warmer…. I believe that humans contribute to that.”

I’m so confused!

What seemed to have been his core values/beliefs (again, not that long ago)—especially pro-choice all the way, baby!—he’s no longer voicing.

Here’s Mitt Romney on video clearly articulating these and other positions that do not reflect the Mitt-of-the-minute.

I can understand a person changing their mind. But these are some controversial topics. Can one just flip a switch on something they spoke so passionately in favor of or against? Was there a sudden wake-up-call/significant life event that altered Mitt’s thinking or was it an evolution? Was he influenced by facts or campaign contributors or a combination of both?

I could understand if these “past” views were from his college years…

Does anyone know the answer(s)? Am I alone in my confusion? Please comment!

P.S. I remain mystified over the absence of climate change discussion in the debates.

P.P.S. In case you’re wondering, I’ve already voted. But I can’t help but remain fixated on the nuances of the election and the candidates themselves (I’m also fascinated by the human psyche).
