Romney first says he wants a complete repeal of Obamacare, then says Sunday morning that he would like to keep certain things like the part about pre-existing conditions. Then later that day his staff release a press release basically saying he didn't really mean it and he wants a complete repeal.
Ryan gets asked about question about weed and he says he is ok with the states deciding on the law, then the campaign comes out the next day and says whoops, the Romney/Ryan ticket is against all weed. Not to mention, every time he opens his mouth a lie spews forth. And the fact that he looks like a creepy Bond villain.
If they don't get their stories straight before the debates, it could get real ugly for the both of them.
This has been Mitt's problem since the day he announced. I'm not sure if there is a single major issue that he hasn't done a 180 on dating back to when he was governor and more recently. Not just the usual political shading, but full 180-degree flips. Abortion, gay issues, healthcare, economic issues, taxes, etc. Every response he gives makes him do pretzel-like contortions.
