Mitt Romney, I Was Wrong and I Take It Back

Stu was wrong about RomneyWell, well, well… Every once in a while, Stu here makes a mistake. Hard to believe, but true.

See, Mitt Romney isn’t the only one who can admit that he was wrong in the past. I can do it too. Luckily, I won’t have a maelstrom of crazy people condemning me for changing my position.

Mr. Romney, I cannot apologize quickly enough. Like I said, I’m not that much into politics and I haven’t paid that much attention to what you’ve been saying on the campaign trail. I am ashamed of myself.

Lucky for me (and I guess you) you have some passionate campaign volunteers where I work. After telling one of them that I tore into you on my blog yesterday, one of them was kind enough to point me to a YouTube video where, while off the air during a radio interview, you answered questions about your Mormon faith while unknowingly being recorded.

I’ll be honest here. I was freakin’ proud to see you defend your faith like you did. You did an excellent job explaining the Church’s stance on members in political positions, although your host didn’t seem to want to hear it. And strangely enough, one Mormon to another, I agreed with what you said (crazy that two Mormons would agree on theology huh?) and you may very well have stolen my vote away from McCain… not that you’ll have any trouble winning the primary in Utah without me.

Good on you Romney! I only wish now that I could take back what I said, delete my old post, make it look like I never said anything against you. But I did, and I’ll have to live with it. At least I won’t ever (I hope not ever) be asked by a bunch of politicos, “Hey, you said you were against Romney, then you changed your mind the very next day. What’s with the flip-flopping?”

I certainly don’t envy your position as a politician, and I envy your opponents even less now. Keep up the good work.

Here’s the video for your enjoyment:
