(The Hill) — Mitt Romney, under fire from all sides on the issue of his consistency, said Thursday he has been as consistent as possible while still being human.

“I’ve been as consistent as human beings can be,” Romney said in a meeting with the editorial board of New Hampshire’s Seacoast Media Group. “I cannot state every single issue in exactly the same words every single time, and so there are some folks who, obviously, for various political and campaign purposes will try and find some change and try to draw great attention to something which looks like a change which in fact is entirely consistent.”

Romney could be speaking about his opposition both on the Democratic side — with the Democratic National Committee and President Obama’s re-election campaign regularly calling him a “flip-flopper” — or within his own party. Romney rival Texas Gov. Rick Perry referred to him as inconsistent Wednesday night in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“You know, Americans want a consistent president,” Perry said. “The issue is, you know, he changes his positions. I mean, last week, and years before he was for cap and trade. He was for global warming is manmade. And now this next week he comes out and says, ‘Well, no. Maybe that’s not the case.’”
