The Mitt Romney anti-endorsement
New Hampshire's Concord Monitor has issued one of my favorite political statements of all time. Before their authentic endorsement of a Republican candidate, they came out with an anti-endorsement: Whatever you do, the Monitor implored, do not elect Mitt Romney.
The logic is centered around Romney's, ahem, "pragmatism," which has allowed him to fundamentally change core positions on choice, stem cell research, taxation and more.
Rumors that Romney read the Monitor piece, agreed with it, and then changed his mind five minutes later are unsubstantiated.
