In 1994, Mitt Romney -- the man now calling Newt Gingrich a "career politician" -- was beginning his 17-year career in national politics.

It's a tactic Romney has perfected over his two decades running for office: Regardless of the circumstances, painting himself as the political outsider and his opponent as a career politician.

The irony is not just the long time Romney has spent in politics, but how he embodies the characteristics of a 'career politicians' he claims to be so eager to defeat. He has opportunistically changed on core beliefs so frequently, the conservative Manchester Union Leader wrote that Romney just "tells us what he thinks we want to hear." But, to court (and win) support from the Republican establishment in Washington and on Wall Street, Romney has continued his pattern of pandering. Even the food he eats and the airlines he flies feel calculated by his chief pollster and strategist." -- BILL BURTON, PRIORITIES USA ACTION
