And for proof, look no further than Mitt Romney, who once he was done worrying about being reelected governor of Massachusetts and started considering the presidency, suddenly had a "change of heart" on several social issues.
I really question Romney's sincerity completely. When running for governor of Massachusettes, being a Mormon really didn't matter... but that's a blue state and he was elected on his political issues, as well as his socially liberal stance on abortion and gay marriage.
Now he's trying to appeal to the compassionate neo-conservatives that presumably got GWB elected twice, but I'm not sure where they are after the democrats ran away with the house and senate.
Romney's a joke. He used Mass as a platform to step into a prez. run ...he said what he needed to say to win votes here, and now he's saying what he needs to say to win back the "conservative" side of Republicans.
