Rudy, McCain, and Romney have one disturbing characteristic in common: all three operate on the premise that they can get away with saying one thing when visiting a state (when in Florida for instance, in the Terri Schiavo case), then change their tune in such a way as to alter the public perception of their position to make it ambiguous. This is slick politics, but when it is applied to issues that are life and death, slick is deadly and the candidates show they have no deeply held pro-life values with such slickness.

I was ready to give Mitt the benefit of reconsideration with his proclamation regaridng cloning, etc reshaping his beliefs, but the more I read of this man's slick responses to pro-life issues, the more I consider his responses to be slick, not fundamental values. Slick is deceitful in the main.

It reminds me of the Clintons.

It’s a postmodern/liberal mindset: Instead of saying one thing and doing another; it would be nice if one actually did what they say they believe, and be consistent. Not try to have it ‘both ways’.

I am so sick of this ‘post-modern’ mindset, WHY Can’t things be simple again!

Exactly. I am deeply disappointed in Bush right now due to his relentless pushing for amnesty for criminals known as illegal immigrants, but one thing for which I will always be grateful and admire him for is his unbending support for the sanctity of human life and the right to live one's life until God decides it's time for the earthly phase of that life to end.

I get the distinct impression from that trio of would-be Chief Executives that their newfound professed respect for human life is just a thin veneer of cover for their real beliefs on the issue and for their insatiable thirst for power at the expense of truth and honor.
