In a typical Obamney Robama fashion, Mittens has flipped again. In the article below from The Washington Times, Romney’s new, temporary position on the Federal Reserve and the lack of transparency by the privately owned central bank. This Obama-like “Evolution” on the former Governor’s stance in regards to the Fed seems to be strategically timed to boost Romney’s fledgling support ahead of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida.
This “180” is a day late and a dollar short, a desperate attempt to garner the support of true fiscal conservatives and followers of Ron Paul. By mimicking Dr. Paul’s long held stance on monetary policy, Romney is attempting to dupe the critical element of the liberty movement.
If I were Mitt, I wouldn’t expect the ‘revolution’ to take his latest flip as genuine. We all know that before long that imminet flop will rear it’s ugly head.
Romney supports audit of the Federal Reserve

Borrowing Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential campaign push, Mitt Romney said Monday he thinks the Federal Reserve should face an audit.
“Very plain and simple, the answer is yes. The Federal Reserve should be accountable. We should see what they’re doing,” Mr. Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, said at a town hall in New Hampshire.
Mr. Paul, the Texas congressman who is still technically in the running for the Republican nomination, though he does not have the delegates to win it at next week’s convention, made an audit of the Fed a chief part of his campaign.
Earlier this year, the House passed Mr. Paul’s bill to grant the Government Accountability Office the power to conduct such a broad audit, though Senate Democrats have shown no inclination to bring that bill to the floor.
