Letter: Mike Lee’s flip-flopping just like Mitt’s
First Published Jan 18 2014 01:01 am • Last Updated Jan 18 2014 01:01 am

Re "Utah Sen. Mike Lee reaches across the aisle with prison reform bill," Tribune, Jan. I3: Mike Lee’s speech to University of Utah students eerily reminded me of a Mitt Romney presidential-campaign speech.

Mitt would speak to one group saying exactly what they wanted to hear. The next day he told another group exactly the opposite, but it was what they wanted to hear. He did this without batting an eye.

I suppose it was the politic thing to do. Mike Lee pontificated on what a swell and feeling guy he was for the poor. Check his voting record on that. He was talking to a mostly liberal group of students that day instead of his rabid tea party supporters. It made one wonder: Were Mike’s fingers crossed behind his back?
