Breaking News: Republican Presidential Candidates Switch Stances!
Yes, it is true. As sometimes-independent thinking Republicans such as Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and John McCain cater to the far right bases of the Republican Party, there stances on key domestic and foreign policy issues change in an instant. Besides Romney, who recently joined the NRA and decided that he was anti-choice on abortion, McCain is now in favor of Bush's deficit-increasing tax cuts (used to be against it), repealing Roe v. Wade (he told the SF Chronicle in 1999 that he didn't support a repeal), and now supports ethanol subsidies (was against them... Iowa, anyone?). Giuliani, besides being a political hack who gives Bush/Cheney talking points on Iraq, is also revealing himself to be a candidate of little consistency: He now is in favor of a flat tax when he used to be against it, has eased up on his gun control positions, and now is against partial birth abortions after being in favor of such access for women. Consistency, thy name certainly isn't Republican.
