Is Romney poised to lose what little trust he has?

There’s a lesson embedded in Mitt Romney’s ability to readily say whatever he needs to win, even when he contradicts himself. Namely, stay in the moment and never worry about what you said in the past. Specifically, speak to the poll numbers and the audience at hand.

Perhaps that’s what allows Romney to be equally sincere about being for something as he is against it. The problem with this approach is that there’s no substance and definitely no trust. Here’s Romney responding to students in several scenarios about the high cost of education and how he plans to help the situation.

What’s insulting and steeped in arrogance is that Romney did not bother to share any explanation about why the shift. All that’s important is that he say something to go after the youth vote. Really. No substance. No trust.
