We all know the story of the Manchurian Candidate, the person who is brainwashed at an early stage of their development, then groomed to a position of
importance, only to carry out an horrific act.
I wonder if Mitt Romney is one such person. We've been led to believe that a characteristic of this sort of person is someone who suddenly does
unexpected things, and forgets what they did before.
Romney has taken so many positions on so many different issues, that it's possible to suspect this sort of behaviour. He has even denied making
statements that were on camera, or widely reported.
This morning, Mr Romney told US television there were "disconcerting" signs Britain was not ready to stage the Games. But hours later, in Downing
Street, he said all Games were hit by "small" mistakes and he had seen "great progress" since arriving in the UK.
I mean, I know he's a famous flip flopper, but he completely did an about face on this issue within HOURS of his original statement after a high
Probably a way out there theory, but hey, it makes you think.
