Now he is venturing off into policy positions as well. As Democrats face impending disaster this November, and for once, Republicans actually remained united against Obama’s last-ditch effort to demagogue with minimum wage mandates, Romney is calling on Republicans to support Obama:
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney on Thursday morning said he supports an increase in the minimum wage, breaking with many Republicans who have stood against it.
“I, for instance, as you know, part company with many of the conservatives in my party on the issue of the minimum wage. I think we ought to raise it,” the 2012 Republican presidential nominee said. “Because frankly, our party is all about more jobs and better pay.”
Romney’s comments come after Senate Republicans rejected a vote on a Senate bill that would have increased the minimum wage to $10.10. Recently, though, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, both of whom also ran for the Republican nomination in 2012, said they supported some increase in the minimum wage.”
So after Obamanomics has depressed the job market and income levels with interventionist mandates, tightening wage mandates will create jobs?
Isn’t it time to retire, Mr. Romney?
No. It’s time for him to come clean, resign from the GOP, and register with the party best suited to his policies and past history: The Democrat Party.
