Romney said he would repeal and REPLACE ObamaCare. Have you checked RomneyCare? When asked the difference between then he stated that RomneyCare had less pages. How reassuring.

A morning after pill as as well as birth control pills murder babies after conception.

Have you checked the Judges appointed by Romney while Governor. Liberal.

Have you checked the Judges appointed by Obama?

What judges are Cain, Santorum and Bachmann going to appoint?

> I tend to think that most, if not all women in that situation would choose the life of the child over their own.

Yes, especially a young future mother who has people who love her more than anything. I’m sure her husband, parents, children and friends would fully encourage her and fully understand her decision.

In reality, suicide is never the answer and to stay and fight is the strongest action. In both motherhood and politics.

Romney or Obama are the viable choices.

You’re certainly free to vote for Virgil Goode or for yourself or for your dog if you don’t care about removing Obama.

Despite Romney’s less than perfect bona fides, he’s still preferable to Obama in my book.

I am not a one issue voter.

So what then? An all-or-nothing voter?

It is not ok for the health of the mother. Good Lord what a crock. This guy sucks more and more daily! Any mother who kills their own child to save their own is a selfish person.

yep. And I know 3 important women close to me who would agree. My mom, wife and sister. Difficult pregnancies and life threatening. Me and my son and nephew thank them. Any time another person comes out of your body there is a risk.

Do you propose that the GOP candidates run on a platform of banning contraception and/or Birth Control Pills?

So where do you stand on the law of double effect? If the unborn baby is going to die anyway, Mom should, too?

No, I favor the current GOP Platform which states that we can murder some babies, but not other babies. /Sarcasm

Liberal judges appointed by Obama BAD, Liberal Judges appointed by Romney GOOD? My dilemma is what is worse 4 years of Obama or 8 years of Romney. I didn’t vote for HOPE & CHANGE last time and I don’t want to this time. I don’t want to have to HOPE Romney will CHANGE.

You seem to think exploring all issues and knowing what you are voting for is wrong. Romney may do a little less damage to the Country but for twice as long. Yeah he is a liberal but he has an R beside his name so lets all vote for him, and don’t dare to question the RNC new king.

You really believe they're the same!?!

Amazing.

Well if the conservative movement and/or the Tea Party can get together on something to influence Washington, who do you think you can influence one way or ther other?

Romney flip-flopper panderer as you say, worried about trying to get re-elected in 2016 or hardcore America-hating destroyer torching everything he can on the way out?

“What else is he gonna say? The VAST majority of women voters have bought in this crap about abortion. He would have zero (0) chance of being elected otherwise. “


So you’re basically saying that no one else but a pro-choice Republican can ever win the Presidency.

Tzar is right at 111.

Let the left celebrate killing babies as a party platform.

Incrementalism works.

I'm saying welcome to the nasty illogical world of human politics. See post #95. The reality is that a vast majority of people, whether they abhor abortion or not, NOW believe it to be a right. They are not willing to accept any serious effort by a politician to reverse Roe v. Wade. I would guess at least half the population (including half of women) hate the idea of abortion, but they would not be willing to allow the government to eliminate abortion entirely.

Romney has already begun his attack on grass roots conservatives. His staff is proudly behind the RNC rule changes. They have removed committee members and replaced them with Romney appointed delegates. He will make sure the Tea Party and any other conservative movement will not have any influence. It makes me wonder just how much damage he can do in 8 years. No I don’t believe Obama and Romney are the same. If Romney really loved this country he would not have been behind the attacks on Sara Palin so he could run in 4 years. It is OK to help betray your Country for your ego?

This is classic Mitt, say one thing, do another.

We're dealing with a colossal, determined liar here.

He has done this all of his career.

Anyone believing that they are going to be able to hold Mitt's feet to the fire where conservatism is concerned is "whistling past the graveyard".

All you have to remember is him lying about how the Supreme Court of MA made him implement Gay Marriage when anyone with a 4th grade reading comprehenshion can read the Massachusetts Constitution and know that where matters of marriage are concerned, it is explicitly spelled out that they have to originate in the Legislature, NOT the Supreme Court.

This is what Mitt does, he lies about being a conservative or even a Republican and then finds a way to do what is non-conservative or even Non-Republican.

THere is going to be Hell to pay where Conservatism is concerned and the GOP.

Wait until he starts talking about amnesty in some form.

It's going to be hilarious watching the Romney supporters make excuses for him and tell us all how they are going to keep his feet to the fire.

>> Romney is telegraphing what he personally believes.

The telegraph was sent a long time ago, and anyone that believes the message has changed is deluding themselves.

The facts are the boy is in favor of abortion and homosexual marriage. Nothing has changed, and we shouldn’t expect it to change.

Regardless of Romney’s betrayal of Life, both Life and Liberty have better odds with 3 Republican Houses.

Take a look at the convention schedule. It will close with a prayer by La Raza pal Rev Samuel Rodriguez.

Rev. Samuel Rodriguez Meets with President Barack Obama to Discuss Immigration Reform, Describes American University Speech as ‘A Clarion Call’

>>In a historic week for Immigration Reform in America, Rev. Samuel Rodriguez met with President Obama on Monday and urged the President to address the moral and spiritual dimension supporting immigration reform. Rodriguez joined a handful of other leaders representing the largest Hispanic organizations in the nation including National Council of La Raza, League of United Latin American Citizens and others in affirming the President’s commitment while simultaneously reiterating the urgency of immediate action.<<

Can someone please tell Mitt to SHUT UP on this abortion issue! Drop it! Stop talking about it! Wait for the debates and answers it simply then?

There Are far more important issues to talk about, any reporter or liberal who brings up abortion should be told they have been told too many times, and that other issues of a currently relevant nature need attention

Where is the evidence that the President's preference on abortion has an effect on the number of abortions? In fact, the evidence indicates otherwise!

ALL: Note that Sam Paine -- above this comment -- ran a chart for only U.S. abortions...as if presidential policy has no impact upon U.S. taxpayer-paid-for abortions overseas!

Sam, stop embarrassing yourself -- and do some research -- on the "Mexico City policy" which was implemented by Ronald Reagan -- and re-implemented under Bush.

Reagan & Bush were able to impact our taxpayer $ going toward the foreign abortion industry by squelching funds going to them.

Now, to be fair, Romney has said he would re-implement this...so, in reality, this is one apparent genuine distinction between pro-abort Romney and pro-abort Obama.

Just don't try to pretend that a POTUS has no impact on abortions...because just as the Mexico City policy has effected U.S. involvement in the dismemberment of foreign babies, likewise there's ALL kinds of ways a POTUS can influence funding -- or lack of it -- going to the AMERICAN abortion industry.

And on this, all ya gotta know is that Romney left a Planned Parenthood rep on the permanent oversight board for MA RomneyCare. (That tells you how "pro-life" he was -- after his supposed "pro-life" "conversion" in late 2004...) Also, RomneyCare has gone from $50 taxpayer funded abortions in MA to -- in some cases -- paying for 100% of abortions...and these go beyond the court-ordered abortions for "exceptions" that MA had to obey.

You've been posting that nonsense for that long -- without any FREEPERs calling you on it?

Ya know, ignorance is fine...after all, we're all ignorant 'bout somethin'...

But the key is to know what you're ignorant about...so that you don't try to export it.
