Romney: "I was pleased that as I ran for Governor, I received the support of the NRA and I hope to receive their support now."
And we all know how pro-Second Amendment the McChurian Candidate is! *rolling eyes*

Romney Claims NRA Endorsement He Didn’t Receive
Maybe it was the pressure of the moment. Being under the Tim Russert spotlight can get to anyone. Under Russert’s grilling about guns on this morning’s “Meet the Press,” former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney claimed an endorsement he’d never won.
...”I also was pleased to have the support of the NRA when I ran for governor. I sought it, I seek it now. I’d love to have their support.”
...”I told you what my position was, and what I, what I did as governor; the fact that I received the endorsement of the NRA.”
He was never endorsed by the NRA, and didn’t have their official support during his 2002 gubernatorial campaign. The NRA declined to endorse in that race, as was acknowledged by Romney’s spokesman this morning.
“The NRA did not endorse in the 2002 campaign,” said spokesman Kevin Madden, when asked about Romney’s comments.
“Said Mr. Reynolds: ‘I’m beginning to question his sincerity.’”
(Mr. Reynolds is a slow learner.)
What is Romney’s CURRENT NRA rating?
He can’t help it, he is a Creep.
Least Arizona doesn’t have any bans on ugly guns.
...it should be pointed out that this appears to be yet another example of Obama not being able to get good help.
Why does the article misquote Romney and say he said “endorse”, when your quote says “the support”?
Romney has lied and flip flopped so often that I don’t trust him in the slightest. I believe he’ll sign any gun control measure that comes across his desk and sell out gun owners. I cannot in good conscience vote for the man.
This is the same lie that was posted here twice yesterday.
WTF is wrong with you?
This whole sentence is an out right lie. And you repeating it shows how low the McCain people will stoop.
John McCain has already abridged one of our Constitutional rights. Who’s to say the 2nd Amendment in’t next on his list?
Thanks for posting this. Everyone who’s honest knows that Flip is a liar, but I thought he would be a little more careful about lying about the NRA supporting him again. Perhaps it’s some kind of a disease he has, you know, like maybe he can’t help himself. Or, as JR often says, “Not his fault. The liberals made him do it. ®” ;^)
As an NRA man I researched NRA’s archive history of McCain. He gave us McCain-Feingold law that cut off NRA free speech; he gave us McCain-Reed law that closed the gun show “loophole”; and...oh yes...he was..is?... a big supporter of the Federal Assault firearms ban.
These are facts guy...not misstatements.
With heroes like the Mac who needs enemies!
Obama wants to band and confiscated handguns.
I bet he wants them all
