Anyone but Mitt

So says the Concord Monitor in a scathing editorial deeming Romney a “phony.”

If you followed only his tenure as governor of Massachusetts, you might imagine Romney as a pragmatic moderate with liberal positions on numerous social issues and an ability to work well with Democrats. If you followed only his campaign for president, you’d swear he was a red-meat conservative, pandering to the religious right, whatever the cost. Pay attention to both, and you’re left to wonder if there’s anything at all at his core.

Not only has Romney slipped into second in Iowa, but he now faces increasing pressure in New Hampshire from a resurgent John McCain. This editorial further fuels a central distinction between the two candidates. McCain, endorsed by the Boston Globe and the New Hampshire Union Leader, is perceived as the candidate of straight talk. On the other hand, Romney is portrayed as a flip-flopper.
