It was politically expedient for Mitt to play centrist in Mass, so that's what he did. Who the hell knows if that reflects his actual political beliefs, or if he even has any. He spent the primary season acting like a frothing far-right ideologue ready to bomb Iran his first day in office, and then selected a VP candidate presumably to shore up that image. Then during the debates he pivots back to the center, denying his previous primary comments and trying to convince everyone he's a peace-lover in the mold of Dennis Kucinch on foreign policy. All the while, most of his advisors are former Bush people. If you can say with any certainty what this man actually believes you are doing so only as an article of faith.
Obama just changed on glb...what does he believe in that he can't change. You fail to recognize that everything you just stated applied directly to him as an individual and moreso as a president. As president, you put aside your personal approach and open the perspective as a president of a nation. Obama has tried, I give him credit, but he has failed more than succeeded and America says no more. The actions of the past are not history...they are now...and Obummer has failed to recognize this his entire presidency playing the blame game for 4 years instead of sacking up and getting to work.
