The Mitt Romney Deception

There is a great analysis of old comments that Mitt Romney made while he ran for the Senate and as Guv of Mass.

The Mitt Romney Deception

Let me quote a few instances:

"Romney ran against Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 1994. During a debate, Romney declared: 'I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. I have since the time that my mom took that position when she ran in 1970 as a US Senate candidate. I believe that since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years we should sustain and support it.' "(NOTE: Romney has supported abortion since before the 1972 Roe v. Wade ruling!)- Boston Globe, 3/2/2006

In 2002, Romney responded to the National Abortion Rights Action League's candidate survey: ''I respect and will protect a woman's right to choose. This choice is a deeply personal one. Women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not mine and not the government's. The truth is, no candidate in the governor's race in either party would deny women abortion rights." Notably, Romney refused to answer the candidate questionnaire sent to him by Massachusetts Citizens for Life.- Boston Globe, 7/3/2005

"In seeking the support of the Log Cabin Republican Club, Romney wrote them a letter promising that 'as we seek to establish full equality for America's gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent.' " [His opponent at the time was Sen. Ted Kennedy, perhaps the foremost advocate of homosexual rights in the U.S. Senate.] - Boston Globe, 10/17/1994

And finally, The infamous Gay Letter

Well, maybe Romney isn't as extreme as some of us thought.

The problem here is that we don't have a conservative candidate.

Maybe Romney isn't as bad a candidate as I originally thought!!! At least these comments on abortion give some hope.

Yes, there is no true blue conservative in the race WHO CAN WIN. John McCain is a tired wishy-washy old man who would lose as thoroughly as Robert Dole. Romney is young and energetic, has a clean record, and can attract women voters. Statements he made to win in a leftist state should not be held against him.

Yeah Romney's bad news...

But Rudy is better? Come on!

How about someone who actually believes in limited government like RON PAUL 2008?
