John Kerry is finally getting to avenge his defeat to George Bush by hammering Mitt Romney on his flip flopping on the issues. You see when Democrats flip flop, it’s out of principle. When Republicans do it it shows how unprincipled they are.

From Politico:

Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) launched a broadside against his fellow Massachusetts politician Mitt Romney on Sunday, calling him a flip-flopper.

“There are few people I’ve met in public life who have changed on as many issues as he has,” Kerry said on NBC’s “Meet the Press”

“Every major touchstone of American politics — from abortion to guns to war to God to gays, you name it,” Kerry told David Gregory. “People will make their own judgments about that.”

Kerry was famously accused of flip-flopping during his 2004 presidential campaign by President Bush. Kerry contrasted his flip-flop on the Iraq war with Mitt Romney’s evolution on the issues.

“I did it as a matter of principle,” Kerry said. “I’ll defend that until the day I die. He’s going to have to defend his positions throughout this race if he’s the nominee.”
