Probably not. Did not take long to rehash a story that has been on FR for days now. The Concord Monitor story is already going on a rehash today. You are rehashing the Boston Globe story. I expect a rehash of something out of the NYT any minute now.

Don’t know if you missed any, but the point was made. This guy is a phony.

Wow, look. Another anti-Romney thread. How original!

Whatsamatta? Your candidate cannot run on his own credentials?

He’s been a lifetime member of the NRA . . . for about two years.

“Rehash...rehash...rehash.”

Actually, the Monitor and Globe and Times are just rehashing what I’ve been saying for the last almost three years now.

See Boston Globe, March 16, 2005:

I believe that, in terms of NRA membership, the actual term is a "life" member rather than a "lifetime" member. I have no idea which term he used.

AFAICT, it's a membership category that gets you membership for the rest of your life regardless of when you buy it.

Your candidate cannot run without his magical underpants?

They have all been hashed over many times. But one more time. Rearding the NRA story he was referring to a piece of legislation that had the support of the NRA.

If you want to believe the Boston Globe that is your right. Now I’m a member of the NRA, California Rifle and Pistol Association and SASS. Is Mitt my number one candidate? No. However I believe the incessant drumbeat of the anti-Mitt forces is way over the top. So much so that I beginning to think there is more behind it than meets the eye. That is why I’m taking the position I have.

My candidate seems to be doing just fine, thank you, despite being outspent 20-to-1 by The Great Prevaricator.

But the diversionary reference to how any other candidate is doing is irrelevant to the truth (or more often untruth) of Romney’s own words.

Romney joined the NRA in August 2006, then began boasting that he was a “life member” of the NRA.

As with much of his rhetoric, intended to lead the uninformed listener to believe something that’s not true.

As in...

“I was always for life.”

“I wasn’t pro-choice.”

“I don’t take the position of a pro-life candidate.”

Sorry, I’m getting confused.

Don’t most of these politicians make it up as they go along? What you get after the election is far from their premises. The only two that haven’t resorted to BS are
Thompson and McCain.

Actually the whole story was that Willard lied when he said he had been endorsed by the NRA when he ran for Governor. He was never endorsed by the NRA and finally admitted that fact.

Looks like you may be showing your ignorance of the NRA. You can buy a lifetime membership. He probably bought it in 2006. He is now a lifetime member. So what is your problem with that?
