Flip Flops Protest Romney

Dressed like giant flip-flops, conservative protesters hounded Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a campaign stop in Massachusetts.

The activists protested the former Governor's shifting positions on abortion over the years, and his wife's $150 contribution to Planned Parenthood during Mr Romney's failed 1994 Senate race.

Mr Romney's views on social issues seem to have changed dramatically since his 1994 Senate race. At the time, he was running for office in a liberal state -- and stated liberal views (see video from 1994 Senate debate below). He's become much more conservative since he started wooing the GOP base in the run for the Republican nomination. Critics have questioned the timing and sincerity of his turnaround. And he's found himself saddled with the nickname of "Multiple Choice Mitt." (
