Which conveniently coincided with his decision to run for president.
Why should we trust politicians who make politically expedient promises?
In 1980, GHWB spend months calling Reagan's tax cut proposals "voodoo economics." Then he had eight years to see how effective Reagan's policies were. So in 1988, when running for president, he promised, "Read my lips: no new taxes." Then a couple years later he said it was necessary to raise taxes.
We should not trust a person with a lifelong record of liberalism simply because they say what they think we want to hear during a political campaign.
Giuliani did not perform abortions, nor did he make abortion legal, nor did he force women to have abortions, nor did he drive women to the abortion clinic, nor did he make those women have sex with men they didnt want to have children with.
I see a huge difference: Rudy say he is for abortion. No question. Romney says he is against it. At least he is willing to take this stand. I presume you have never changed your mind on issues and you also are against Fred because of his changed positions. A goal of the pro life movement is to get people to chance their minds. I have no interest to further argue with people who see no hope in anyone changing their mind and take such a gloomy outlook.

Allow me to add to your great comment here...
G HW Bush also got the NRA endorsement when he ran the first time. Shortly before he ran for his 2nd term he got pissed at the NRA, tore up his membership card and said he wanted nothing more to do with them.
Well, he got his wish. No endorsement and he lost!
No Republican has EVER been elected without the NRA endorsement and that is something else Rooty and Romney will never get!
You can’t trust liberals!
How many times: GHWB did not say “no new taxes” he said “no nude Texans”.
