Romney Softens Policy Stances

Mitt Romney told Meet the Press that he would retain parts of President Obama's health care law, said that House Republicans made a mistake agreeing to automatic cuts in military spending to avoid a fiscal crisis and acknowledged that the president's national security strategy has made America in "some ways safer."

The New York Times notes the remarks "seemed to mark the emergence of a less openly partisan, more general-election-oriented Republican nominee, who is intent on appealing to middle-of-the-road voters who have not yet made up their minds."

However, the Romney campaign later insisted to National Review there had been "no change" his position on health care.
