Romney is: pro abortion pro homosexual agenda pro government mandates pro man mad global warming pro gun grab pro big government pro government health care pro welfare (and more)
That list is simply not accurate beyond mere distortion or exaggeration.
Want an example of "off the reservation". First, would be all the posters that say there is no difference in Romney and Obama, that they are one in the same. These people don't have the first clue about how our system of government works or they would NOT say this. To be an adult and have this opinion is clearly off the reservation
Another is all the "I'll never vote for Romney" crowd. Who seem to think doing a write in vote is somehow not voting for Romney and not helping to reelect Obama. They are free to vote or not vote however they want but their mind set is off the reservation.
Lies, distortions = Romney appointed liberal justices. People that make this claim are either misinformed (distorting) or they know the truth of the Mass. System but are in fact (lying) about his appointments.
I could go on and on but I'm not going to get into a pissing match with those that have mindset that is not based in reality.
There is a mixture of things I can’t agree with on this thread.
First of all, saying ENOUGH and asserting one will not vote for Romney, a man whose record of governing in Mass. is full of Rhino compromise is certainly something that can be termed principled and even conservative principled. I may not withold my vote in this manner but I understand the issue.
Secondly for anyone to claim there aren’t anti-Mormon threads on this site is disingenuous at best and an attempt at disinformation of a leftist caste at the least. The is an entire clutch of posters that make their entire participation on the site about trolling for Mormons or their defenders and “exposing” the flaws of the practice of Mormonism. They have taken the appellation “the flying Inmans.” When you take a nasty name as a badge of honor you are declaring you are a party.
The owner of the site has plainly said threads promoting Romney are not welcome. As I respect his sponsorship of this site I will certainly always comply — why can’t others — there is a lot of politics and news without Mitt.
pro abortion: Speaking at a bioethics forum, GOP gubernatorial hopeful Mitt Romney yesterday endorsed embryonic stem cell research. The Boston Globe, 6/14/02
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. The Boston Globe, 3/2/06)
I will preserve and protect a womans right to choose, and am devoted and dedicated to honoring my word in that regard. I will not change any provisions of Massachusetts pro-choice laws. (2002 Romney-OBrien Gubernatorial Debate, Suffolk University, Boston, MA, 10/29/02)
pro homosexual agenda: In 1994, called President Bill Clintons dont ask, dont tell military policy the first of a number of steps that will ultimately lead to gays and lesbians being able to serve openly and honestly in our nations military. The Washington Post, 12/21/06
When a 2002 Constitutional Amendment was proposed to ban same-sex marriage, Romney opposed it. The Boston Globe, 3/22/02
pro government mandates/ health insurance: Romney signed a bill Wednesday requiring all Massachusetts residents to purchase health insurance. The Washington Post, 4/13/06
pro man mad global warming: “I think the global warming debate is now pretty much over and people recognize the need associated with providing sources which do not generate the heat that is currently provided by fossil fuels” Cape Cod Times, 3/14/03)
pro gun grab: “I will take stands that put him at odds with some traditional ultra- conservative groups, and cite my support for the assault rifle ban and the Brady gun control law. Thats not going to make me the hero of the NRA, he said. I dont line up with a lot of special interest groups. Boston Herald, 9/23/94)
pro big government: Mitt Romney broke with GOP tradition and refused to sign the Americans for Tax Reform. The Boston Globe, 9/4/06)
(and more): “Illegal immigrants should have a chance to obtain citizenship., The Lowell Sun, 3/30/06)
I was an independent during the time of Reagan-Bush. Im not trying to return to Reagan- Bush. The Boston Globe, 2/26/05)
Since you mentioned judges:
2005, The Boston Globe
Romney has passed over GOP lawyers for three-quarters (75%) of the 36 judicial vacancies he has faced, instead tapping registered Democrats or independents including two gay lawyers who have supported expanded same-sex rights.
Of the 36 people Romney named to be judges or clerk magistrates, 23 are either registered Democrats or unenrolled voters who have made multiple contributions to Democratic politicians or who voted in Democratic primaries, state and local records show. In all, he has nominated nine registered Republicans, 13 unenrolled voters, and 14 registered Democrats.
Yea, I guess my view of Romney is distorted.
