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.
