Will This “Flip-Flop” Video Destroy Mitt Romney’s Campaign?

Mitt Romney’s opponents, on both the left and the right, are celebrating the release of the following video. In it you will see Mitt touting the fact that he was able to funnel millions of dollars from the government for the 2002 Olympics.

Now that you’ve seen the video, what did you think? I personally wasn’t phased much, but that might just be because I’m not “on the fence” in the primary. I picked Romney months ago. I’d be interested in hearing from anyone who is still undecided. Romney as both businessman and Governor took advantage of federal funds to accomplish his goals, but I don’t see that as a fault. You expect a good businessman to avoid any expenditure possible, but you shouldn’t blame the businessman for the systems he exploits. Such an argument is akin to saying that anyone who signed up for medicare can never run on a platform to reform medicare. Romney probably knows the loopholes available to receive government funds better than any of the other candidates, but that means he has a better perspective on how to repair the system. On the other hand, I’m interested in seeing how Romney talks about the Olympics now. Will he accept the fact that he received a large amount of government funding or will he keep back-peddling on the funding issue like he did in the debates?
