A new video from the Democratic National Committee digs up footage of new Mitt Romney endorser John McCain repeatedly slamming his one-time rival for a long history of flip-flops.
“The governor of Massachusetts is very consistent — totally consistent — because he has had two positions, at least, on every issue,” then presidential candidate McCain is heard saying. The video also shows McCain joke in a presidential debate that Romney was the “real change candidate,” because of his shifting beliefs.
McCain, who won the New Hampshire primary in 2000 and 2008, appeared in the Granite State to give Romney his endorsement.
“I am really here for one reason and one reason only,” McCain told a town hall audience in Manchester. “And that is to make sure that we make Mitt Romney the next president of the United States of America. And New Hampshire, New Hampshire is the state that will catapult him on to victory.”
Democrats, who believe Romney poses the largest threat to President Barack Obama’s reelection chances, continue to attack him with a singular focus — with many openly celebrating the rise of Rick Santorum to the top-tier.
