(Newser) – Maybe John Kerry was for Mitt Romney before he was against him, but count the Massachusetts senator as definitely not a Romney fan now. Kerry took a moment out of an appearance on Meet the Press to specially blast the former governor of his state, reports Politico, saying, "There are few people I've met in public life who have changed on as many issues as he has. Every major touchstone of American politics—from abortion to guns to war to God to gays, you name it," Kerry said. "People will make their own judgments about that."

As for Kerry's own infamous flip-flop: "I did it as a matter of principle," he said. "I'll defend that until the day I die. He's going to have to defend his positions throughout this race if he's the nominee."
