Mitt Romney is often criticized for being a spineless flip-flopper on issues ranging from the auto bailout to abortion and immigration. But that's totally unfair.
Romney is resolute in his belief that he does not yet have any resolute beliefs about anything…
RNC Hispanic Outreach Director Bettina Inclán fumbled when asked to defend likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's views on immigration, which were hit by some Republicans and observers during the primary as being too extreme and a liability in the general election.
"I think as a candidate, to my understanding, he's still deciding what his position on immigration is," Inclán said. "So I can't talk about what his proposal is going to be because I don't know"…
A few minutes after Inclán's statement, RNC spokeswoman Kristen Kukowski interrupted the briefing to explain that Romney does indeed have position on immigration, but the RNC just wasn't prepared to talk about it. She added that Romney has only been the presumptive nominee for a few weeks, and the RNC and campaign haven't completed the transition process.
Yeah, calm down, guys. Mitt Romney has only been the nominee for a few weeks and has only been a prominent politician for the last 18 years. That's only 936 weeks. You can't expect Romney to just possess a core belief about one of our nation's most important issues in that short of a time.
Before Romney can state his campaign's official position on immigration, he must figure out what he believes in his heart. That is, what polls and focus groups say he believes in his heart. Just give him another 900 weeks. By that time, Romney will have figured out his heartfelt stance on crucial issues like immigration and gay marriage.
Though President Obama will probably still be "evolving."
