Mitt Romney, Hypocrite
stonezone ^

Posted on 10/01/2011 2:52:03 PM PDT by tsowellfan

This column is about hypocrisy. As a libertarian, I support marriage equality for gays and abortion rights although I admit I have struggled mightily with the latter and my views have changed after the birth of my grandchildren. I have always been and remain a Second Amendment man.

Mitt Romney once agreed with me. When running for the US Senate in 1994, Romney supported abortion on demand, gay marriage and gun control. That same year he attacked President Ronald Reagan and Vice President George Bush saying "I don't want to take us back to that, to Reagan-Bush."

Now suddenly Mitt Romney wants us to believe he is not only a fiscal conservative but a social conservative who "has always been pro-life" and now opposes same sex marriage. Can you say chameleon?

Romney's boast that he spent 24 years in the private sector creating jobs is a joke. Massachusetts ran third from the bottom of all the states in job creation during his governorship and his main vocation at Bain Capital was consolidating companies and firing workers who didn't fit into his downsizing plans.

Much like his father, Michigan Governor George Romney, Willard Mitt Romney disdains conservatives privately but knows how to sound like one when the occasion requires it. His mother, Lenore Romney, ran for the US Senate a a pro-abortion supporter of the ERA. Romney reminds me of George H.W. Bush who, after being elected President, took the National Review magazine off the coffee table and threw it in the trash replacing it with the Yale Alumni magazine saying "We don't need this shit anymore."

Here then is Mitt Romney's record. Governor Romney says he's "only been in politics the four years he was governor." He'd like us to forget his 1994 race for the US Senate when he ran to the left of Teddy Kennedy (as if there is any room there without falling off the left side of the earth.)

Here then is the real record of Willard Mitt Romney:

1994: Romney backed federal funding of abortion and the codification of Roe v. Wade. "Romney supports a federal health care plan option that includes abortion services, would vote for a law codifying the 1972 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion and backs federal funding for abortions as long as states can decide if they want the money, [a spokesman] said." (Ed Hayward, "Anti-Abortion Group Endorses Romney Bid," Boston Herald, 9/8/94)

1999: Romney said, "When I am asked if am I pro-choice or pro-life, I say I refuse to accept either label." (Glen Warchol, "This Is The Place, But Politics May Lead Romneys Elsewhere," The Salt Lake Tribune, 2/14/99)

2002: Running for Massachusetts Governor, Romney said he was "devoted" to the pro-choice position. "I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose, and am devoted and dedicated to honoring my word in that regard. I will not change any provisions of Massachusetts' pro-choice laws." (2002 Romney-O'Brien Gubernatorial Debate, Suffolk University, Boston, MA, 10/29/02)

2005: Romney Considered Abortion-Rights Supporter By Pro-Life Groups - Aide Claimed His Position Had Not Changed. "[Massachusetts Citizens for Life] considers Romney to be an abortion-rights supporter, as do national antiabortion groups such as the Family Research Council. ... [Romney aide Eric] Fehrnstrom said the governor's position has not changed on either sex education or abortion." (Scott S. Greenberger, "Roe V. Wade Omitted From Proclamation," The Boston Globe, 3/25/05)

2006: Romneycare provides taxpayer-funded abortions. Abortions are covered in the Commonwealth Care program that Romney created as Governor. Under the program, abortions are available for a copay of $50. (Menu of Health Care Services: www.mass.gov/Qhic/docs/cc_benefits1220_pt234.pdf )

2006: Romneycare guarantees Planned Parenthood a seat at the table. Romney's legislation created an advisory board and guarantees, by law, that Planned Parenthood has a seat at the table. Romney's plan established a MassHealth payment policy advisory board, and one member of the Board must be from Planned Parenthood. No pro-life organization is represented. (Chapter 58 Section 3 (q) Section 16M (a), www.mass.gov/legis/laws/seslaw06/sl060058.htm )

Romney used his line-item veto authority to strike eight sections of the bill that he found objectionable, including the expansion of dental benefits to Medicaid recipients. Yet, he did not strike Planned Parenthood's guaranteed Board representation and he did nothing to prohibit taxpayer-funded abortions as part of his plan. ("Romney's Health Care Vetoes," Associated Press, 4/12/06)

2007: Romney now claims he has always been pro-life. "I am firmly pro-life ... I was always for life." (Jim Davenport, "Romney Affirms Abortion Opposition During Stop In SC," The Associated Press, 2/8/07) policy advisory board."

2011: Romney refuses to sign the pro-life Susan B. Anthony Pledge. Romney has drawn criticism for being one of only three Republican presidential candidates to have refused to sign the Susan B. Anthony List's Pro-Life Leadership Presidential Pledge. ( dailycaller.com/2011/06/18/romney-draws-fire-for-not-signing-pro-life-pledge/ )

Mitt Romney also has a record of supporting gun control and has supported anti-second amendment initiatives:

1994: Romney supported the Brady Bill and Assault Weapons Ban, bragging his stance was "not going to make me the hero of the NRA." "[Romney] said he will take stands that put him at odds with some traditional ultra-conservative groups, and cited his support for the assault rifle ban and the Brady gun control law. 'That's not going to make me the hero of the NRA,' he said. 'I don't line up with a lot of special interest groups.'" (Andrew Miga, "Mitt Rejects Right-Wing Aid," Boston Herald, 9/23/94)

2002: Romney praised Massachusetts' tough gun laws, vowed not to "chip away at them" as Governor. "[A]s the GOP gubernatorial candidate in 2002, Romney lauded the state's strong laws during a debate against Democrat Shannon O'Brien. 'We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts; I support them,' he said. 'I won't chip away at them; I believe they protect us and provide for our safety.'" (Scott Helman, "Romney Retreats On Gun Control," The Boston Globe, 1/14/07)

2006: Romney explains he signed up for lifetime NRA membership in August 2006 because "I'm after the NRA's endorsement. ... If I'm going to ask for their endorsement, they're going to ask for mine." "Expressing familiarity with and support for gun rights is key among Republican presidential contenders ... It helps explain why Romney joined the NRA last August, signing up not just as a supporter but a designated 'Lifetime' member ... Romney told a Derry, N.H., audience, 'I'm after the NRA's endorsement. I'm not sure they'll give it to me. I hope they will. I also joined because if I'm going to ask for their endorsement, they're going to ask for mine.'" (Glen Johnson, "Romney Calls Himself A Longtime Hunter," The Associated Press, 4/5/07)

Mitt Romney once supported marriage equality. As a libertarian I wish he still did. His overnight switch is opportunistic and transparent. Mitt Romney believes in nothing but getting elected:

1994: Romney told the Massachusetts Log Cabin Club he would be better for gay rights than Ted Kennedy. In a letter to the group, Romney wrote, "As we seek to establish full equality for America's gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent." An Oct. 13, 1994 Bay Windows article also quoted from Romney's letter: "For some voters it might be enough for me to simply match my opponent's record in this area. But I believe we can and must do better. If we are to achieve the goals we share, we must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern. My opponent cannot do this. I can and will."

2002: Romney called 2002 amendment banning gay marriage and benefits in Massachusetts too extreme and did not support it. "Mitt Romney's wife, son, and daughter-in-law signed a petition in support of a proposed constitutional amendment that would ban both gay marriage and domestic-partner benefits in Massachusetts - an amendment that Romney himself condemned as too extreme after being told of his family's support for it." (Rick Klein, "Romney Kin Signed Petition To Ban Same-Sex Marriage," The Boston Globe, 3/22/02)

2002: A Romney aide said he felt the amendment was "unnecessary." "Romney's family members signed the petition to put it on the ballot 'without reading the fine print,' [Romney aide Eric] Fehrnstrom said, but he has no reason to believe they do not support it. 'Mitt did not know they signed it, and Mitt does not support it,' he said. 'As far as Mitt is concerned, it goes farther than current law, and therefore it's unnecessary.'" (Rick Klein, "Romney Kin Signed Petition To Ban Same-Sex Marriage," The Boston Globe, 3/22/02)

2006: Romney backed efforts to pass a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage in Massachusetts. "Just two weeks before lawmakers resume a Constitutional Convention to vote on a proposed ballot initiative to ban same-sex marriage, Gov. Mitt Romney will stand with the supporters of the measure to call on the Legislature to back it. Romney will join petition backers in a State House press event today to urge the Legislature to pass the Protection of Marriage Amendment when the Constitutional Convention reconvenes July 12, authorizing a 2008 ballot question asking voters to define marriage as between one man and one woman." (Kimberly Atkins and Kate Gibson, "Mitt Joining Supporters Of Anti-Gay Wed Initiative," Boston Herald, 6/28/06)

Mitt Romney fails the test of three key conservative issues - abortion, gun rights and same-sex marriage. Conservatives who support Mitt Romney also underestimate his weakness in the South, where the Church of Latter Day Saints is viewed with suspicion by evangelical Christians. In my view, these very real problems will haunt him - and spook conservatives - in the months ahead.

We are not talking about ideological perfection in this election; we are talking about getting our government back under adult supervision, for our own safety and to prevent other nations needing to fear us and/or take actions to deal with continuing lack of adult supervision at high levels of US government.

There is nobody amongst our potential candidates who would not be a gigantic improvement over Barrack Obama. Mitt Romney easily could end up being our candidate and NOBODY amongst us should be calling him a hypocrite.

There is no need to rally around this two faced hack Mittens till we absolutely have to in the General. Until then, Mittens needs to be exposed to lead the way for one of the real Conservatives to win.

Romney on Reagan

You really want to defend this lying sack of $#!t?

Sad to say, but the majority of FReepers have already told us they’re rather see 0bama win than to vote for Romney, Christie or Perry. They claim they will stay home unless St. Sarah runs.

Let’s hope the majority of voters don’t feel this way, or we’re guaranteed another four years of socialism, from which we will never turn back.

As Mark Levin states, he’d vote for an orange juice can over 0bama. And so would I.

You are right, but Levin also says we need to try and get the most Conservative candidate we can right now. Rolling over in the Primary season for a proven failure in both electability and Conservatism is not what he talks about at all. Mittens needs to be shut down now.

Get real. Romney is a supreme hypocrite and I won't vote for him even if he is the republican candidate. Go ahead and tell me noob, "That's the same as voting for obama", as if that's the first time it's ever been said.

Don't even try to push Mitt Romney here.

Patience. Patience. The Tea Party will be victorious. Just like they were back in 2010 thanks to Sarah Palin's help. Sarah Palin did it in 2010 which is why she's the kingmaker in 2012 and I'm sure she will not fail us this election year.

A GOP establishment Romney win as the nominee would be a defeat for the Tea Party and today's kingmaker Sarah Palin. This kind of defeat is not an option.

That is ridiculous. The kind of attitude that gets us RINO presidential candidates like John McCain that lose to communists like Obama or, even when the Republican wins, more government, just at a slower pace. No thanks.

Mitt Romney is a total phony and most certainly not a conservative. That may not bother you but it bothers most FReepers. Barack Obama has performed dismally and so, will be relatively easy to defeat. Meaning that the primary elections are crucial to ensure that the GOP doesn't hand us another Democrat-Lite candidate. This nation can't afford another GOP politician that drops the masquerade of 'conservatism' and seeks ways to play ball with the Democrats as soon as he is safely elected. If anyone wants to sneer at Republican primary voters demanding that we nominate a real conservative candidate, as wanting 'ideological purity', that is their prerogative. However, doing so does not reflect the kind of political sophistication one might assume. Instead, it demonstrates a desperation and fear of defeat that is totally unwarranted and would give the U.S. yet another 'pragmatist president' that, inevitably would end up increasing the size and scope of government while diminishing our personal freedoms via heavy taxes, regulation and deficits that never end. I don't think many FReepers are jumping on the 'anybody but Obama' bandwagon because we have choices. This time, we can demand a choice, not a warmed-over, faux 'conservative' such as Mitt Romney that privately disdains conservatism and would quickly revert to his statist ways, if elected.

Romney will NEVER be “OUR” candidate.

If the GOP takes the backstabber, another’s name will
be written in.

The GOP will commit suicide by picking the backstabber.

And BTW, using the POS Romney in the same
line as “Hypocrite” is unfair to hypocrites.

Whadda ya expect from a noob with comments like these:

Romney, Gingrich, Cain and a couple of the others qualify, the rest including Palin do not.

What about a Romney/Cain ticket?? I mean, that would annihilate Obama.

Romney noted the differences and declared that his first act as president would be the abolition by exec order of Obamacare. What the hell exactly do you want or need???

“We don’t intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals of our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all,” and the traitors he was referring to were the Rhinos of his day who had undermined the Goldwater conservatives during the 1964 campaign. And Reagan was saying: Over my dead body is the Republican Party going to be turned over to those people. We’re only going places if we conservatives run this party, if we take it over and if we are unified.” Ronald Reagan

“Mitt Romney easily could end up being our candidate and NOBODY amongst us should be calling him a hypocrite.”

A friendly word of warning, stevehoveler. JR, the owner of FR, does not take kindly to RINO supporters.

You’re new on FR, so it’s probably in your interest, if you want to remain a member of FR, to NOT push Romney as a candidate.

Oh, oh. I see JR has dropped in on this thread and made a comment about Mitt already. Tread softly, FRiend.

Mark it down as a wild guess on my part, but I bet if you push Mitt, you’ll meet the Viking kitties ZOT machine soon. Maybe tonight.

Good luck...

If RINO Romney is the nominee, I'll just sit it out. Cause that would be a worst disaster than Obama. Because Romney will be "bipartisan" and stab us in the back by bowing to the democrats.

All you have to do is look at this photo. It says it all.

Maybe on other issues but the statements on Romney which he made in the article were backed up by linked confirmed sources which I tested before deciding to post the article. The links are included in the article.

Just because the the author may be a hypocrite to his own Libertarian party does not mean we need to accept Romney's hypocrisy in our own party. Two wrongs don't make a right. At least not in my book.

If the GOP puts Mittens up, they will have repeat of the last election.

A lot of Obama’s opposition is rooted in rejection of Obamacare and anyone who pretends that is not so and that Romney is not right in the middle of that mess, is delusional. So if the GOP puts him up, it will just be another sad chapter of the stupid party.

That’s a pretty grandiose statement Jo. How did you ID that “majority” thingy, because nobody asked me about anyone except Romney, and I’ve never said I would just stay home either. Betcha you just made it all up, eh?

That’s a pretty grandiose statement Jo.

Remember when McCain was "the only one who can beat Obama?"

Several months ago, someone posted that we had to nominate Romney because "the late night talk show hosts like him." Apparently Letterman and Leno choose our candidate. When did the idiots overrun Free Republic?

Oh that’s the “toned down” version. The last one was really over the top rude. :-) I think the current one is adequate. It gets the point across. :-)
