The Final Flip-Flop

So the big political news today is that Mitt Romney has decided to drop out of the race for the Republican nomination. That led me, for the first time, to check out Mr. Romeny’s campaign website, where I noticed what may be his final “flip-flop” of the ’08 campaign season. The first picture upon the site’s loading includes the following quote from the former Massachusetts governor:

“If this were only about me, I would go on. But I entered this race because I love America, and because I love America, I feel I must stand aside, for our party and for our country.”

The very next picture that loads is accompanied by the following quote from Romney following “Super Tuesday”:

“Ann [Romney’s wife] came to me and she said, ‘You know, the one thing that’s clear tonight is that nothing’s clear.’ But I think she’s wrong. One thing that’s clear is this campaign’s going on.” [emphasis mine]
