Skip to comments.Uh oh: Romney refuses to sign pro-life groupís pledge

Doubling down on RomneyCare, confirming that he believes in climate change, now this. Say this for him: At least hes not a total pander machine this time around. He just seems to be in the grip of a political death wish. I cant even explain this in terms of him wanting to stick by a position he espoused in the past in order to signal to voters that hes authentic and wont bend on his principles easily. His position, ostensibly, is that hes pro-life. This makes him look like hes inching back towards his pro-choice past. Is he in fact pandering to centrists here, with an eye already towards the general election, or what?
Coming soon from Pawlenty, presumably: A nasty tweet ripping Mitt for forever flip-flopping on abortion, followed by a whole lot of stammering at the next debate. Bachmann, however, just might lay him out.
The [Susan B. Anthony List] pledge also states that a candidate will, if elected president, nominate pro-life persons to relevant Cabinet and Executive Branch positions, in particular the head of National Institutes of Health, the Department of Health & Human Services, and the Department of Justice. Such a provision, Saul said, would restrict Romneys ability to choose his Cabinet.

I think people have said it as a joke, but if Romney changed parties and challenged Obama for the Dem nomination, he might have an excellent chance of being the next president. But, as a Republican? That’s not gonna happen.
Romney demonstrates once again how ths country is cursed with useless politicians,when what we need is God-fearing patriots.
In my opinion, Romney can take his Socialist RomneyCare, his RINO support of Climate Change, and shove his RINO campaign where the votes don’t shine.
I like it very much. May I use it?
Romney and Obama are competing for the same 40% to 45% of liberal Democrats and liberal RINOs.
“God fearing” is a significant characteristic especially compared to the God complex POTUS we have now - not to mention his enablers in the Congress and media.
Not sure what I’d do if it ended up to be Romney v Obama - why is it so hard to defend innocent life??? This is beyond my capacity to understand. As the wonderful RR said - “I’ve noticed that everyone for abortion has already been born”.
Abortion is the real bottom line - at least for me.
You don't have to be a conservative, because most conservatives aren't really paying attention.

I think this proves Palin will run, why else would Willard veer left before the primaries even start?
“Re: Abortion is the real bottom line - at least for me.
Count me in as well !
From the articel:
“Or maybe he thinks tea partiers will line up for him if hes the nominee no matter what he says or does which, according to Rasmussens new poll, might be true!”
That is the plan. A vote for Trotsky instead of Stalin is not the way forward, comrades.
Romney, hopefully, will self-implode.
Dear God, please let him self-implode ;-)
I think this proves Bachman is trying for vp. Romney thinks he can flirt with the left because he believes Bachman will bring in the conservatives.
What’s he’s learned is, conservative aren’t going to vote for him under any circumstances. Then he did the math and determined that with the other 5-7 candidates knocking each other over for TP support, he can take the nomination with a solid base of moderates, squishes and what-have-yous.
The other thing to consider is, a Romney nomination guarantees a serious third party candidate and, ultimately, an Obama victory. Knowing this, dem voters will flood the open primary states with votes for Romney. Call it payback for Operation: Chaos.
I don’t like the way this is playing out. Especially if Romney does well in Iowa, then wins big in New Hampshire and gets the big dollars flowing his way.
Why doesnt Romney just get the whole thing over with and wear clown shoes and a big red wig? Honestly, he would still get into trouble even if his advisors super-glued his mouth closed!
