“Politicians once flip-flopped at their own risk knowing the price they’d likely pay from the hypocrisy-sensitive press corps. . . .  

“But this campaign Romney has mostly skated through his latest reincarnation, as pundits marvel at the political ease and wisdom of his flip-flops: ‘Crafty’ announced The Daily Beast. . . . BuzzFeed suggested Romney had bet his entire campaign on the hope that ‘the era of the flip-flop as untenable, campaign-ending, non-starter is over.’ If it is, Romney has the press to thank.”
