Tax Policy: Romney Calls McCain a Flip-Flopper

Suzanne Smalley reports:

“Senator McCain has proven that he will say anything to win this election,” Romney told reporters. “He has taken on a very aggressive, bold strategy of misrepresentation, and it works in politics to a degree.” Romney then listed several issues on which, he says, McCain has flip-flopped, including the Bush tax cuts: McCain once opposed them but has more recently voiced his support for the policy.

Romney has a very good point here but there is a wee bit of a problem as Josh Marshall explains:

McCain’s fibbing and flipping on the Bush tax cuts is pretty hilarious. But I guess Mitt ain’t the guy to make the case.
