Yes, Mitt Romney was known for his ability to do a 180, but Jeb Bush can do a stunning 360

One of the more notable aspects of Mitt Romney’s failed bid for the presidency was his penchant for flip-flopping on the issues.

Romney figured early on that the only way he could  win the Republican nomination was by disowning many of the positions he held as governor of Massachusetts. This strategy earned him a reputation as a first-class flip-flopper.

But rare is the politician who can flip-flop and then flip back again. Let’s face it — a 360 is at least twice as difficult as a 180.

Ah, but Jeb Bush has attempted this daunting maneuver on the issue of immigration reform.

Benjy Sarlin has a chronology HERE.

UPDATE: Wait! As we see  HERE, Bush’s 360 suddenly is overshadowed by an incredible 720 performed by Paul Ryan and other prominent Republicans on an issue related to Obamacare:

Ryan and Republican leaders started off opposing the ACA’s Medicare cuts, then turned around and twice passed budgets that kept them, then campaigned against those cuts in the 2012 election, and are now embracing them again.

  1. The weathervane guys for sure. Now boy wonder says the GOP budget assumes the repeal of Obamacare going back to magic vouchers. Why don’t they just state that all citizens should not receive food, shelter and healthcare unless the ecomomy trickles down on them from fantasyland.

  2. Let’s elect another wonderful and typical Democrat in every State, county and city, election as well as President..Oops .we have one now just like this guy in the White House.

    Verdict in ex-Detroit mayor corruption trial
    Jurors reached a verdict Monday in the federal corruption trial of ex-Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick after 14 days of deliberations.
    Prosecutors say Kwame Kilpatrick rigged contracts that benefited Ferguson’s construction company. In turn, the government says Kilpatrick got a cut of the spoils Kilpatrick’s lawyer says the former mayor simply got cash gifts from political supporters and city employees while in office.
    Kilpatrick is charged with 30 crimes, including racketeering conspiracy, bribery, extortion and tax evasion. His father, Bernard, is a co-defendant along with Ferguson. The conspiracy charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison. To convict on that count, the jury must find that at least one of them agreed to commit two crimes, such as extortion, bribery or fraud.

    God Bless America
