The Hill’s Congress Blog: “Mitt’s makeover is now complete – But will it work?”

“With the third and final presidential debate now in the history books, the extreme makeover of Mitt Romney is now complete,” writes Christopher Malone, associate professor and chair, Department of Political Science at Pace University.

“With the third and final presidential debate now in the history books, the extreme makeover of Mitt Romney is now complete,” writes Christopher Malone, associate professor and chair, Department of Political Science at Pace University. “In the first two debates, we learned that the former governor of Massachusetts was against reducing the share of the tax burden for the wealthiest Americans, for increasing Pell grants, for means-testing Social Security benefits so wealthier seniors would receive less, for the auto bailout (Iā€™m glad you followed my advice, President Obama), and for affirmative action in the hiring of women in his cabinet. In the last debate, we learned that Romney is now for increasing foreign aid, for expanding the rights of women and enhancing economic development in the Middle East, against any military option in the case of Iran or Syria, and for ā€“ generally ā€“ world peace.”
