It Looks Like We’ve Discovered Gloria Allred’s Romney-Bashing October Surprise
The Gateway Pundit ^ | 10/21/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 10/21/2012 12:33:51 PM PDT by Nachum

On Friday Drudge teased that far left sensationalist Gloria Allred was about to drop a bomb on the Romney Campaign.

Allred has a reputation of dragging perceived female victims in front of the camera as props to bash Republican candidates. In October 2010 Allred dragged out illegal alien Nicki Diaz to attack heartless Meg Whitman. Minaj was upset Whitman didn’t buy her child a present and claimed Meg took advantage of her despite the fact she made a good wage. In November 2011 she dragged out Sharon Bialek who accused Herman Cain of sexual abuse.

So it is likely this year’s October surprise is Carrel Hilton Sheldon, a former Mormon.

The book Horror Stories: Mitt Romney’s Shameful Record with Mormon Women details Mitt Romney’s “psychological intimidation and bullying” during his role as a Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The report describes how Romney “tried to bully” Carrel Hilton Sheldon when she was suffering through a difficult pregnancy into not having an abortion. AlterNet reported:

A far more ominous tale in the Romney canon also took place that summer, one that has been largely swept under the rug as the former governor of Massachusetts challenges incumbent Barack Obama for the presidency. There have been no songs written about it, no cartoons, no gags on late-night television, no magazine covers.

It was in August of that year, shortly after the Romney family returned from their vacation to Lake Huron, that a pregnant woman in her late 30s—Carrel Hilton Sheldon—was informed

Isn’t it getting a little late for an October Surprise? Wouldn’t Obama have done it after he lost miserably in the first debate?

Sometimes “bullying” is a matter of opinion. If he strongly advised her that the teaching of the church prohibited abortion and strongly counseled her to make another choice, is that “bullying”? Or is it staying true to his faith and expecting her (as a Mormon) to do the same?

LOL that’s the big surprise LOL..WOW EPIC FAIL GLORIA WHOREALLRED! Big Deal..Romney told a woman that she should not have an abortion..guess what..pro abortion people don’t vote Republican anyway..so this changes NOTHING..actually makes me have more respect for Mitt knowing that he wanted this woman to choose life..and from what I understand, she ended up having the abortion anyway so apparently the conversation she had with Romney changed nothing in her mind

The fact that the commie lib skank, Allred, is holding back until the last minute would indicate to me that her bimbo parade won’t stand up to any scrutiny. Mitt needs to be ready to return fire, quickly.

This is the Obama electoral modus operendi...just ask Jack Ryan... dirty personal destructive politics is Obama’s trading card. He could never win an election based on his marxist ideas so he must denegrate the opponent. Nothing new here..just how much of it the electorate will buy is up for debate, but with the press pushing it you never know.

NAS Sigonella on Sicily is 500 miles from Bengazi and the AC130 cruises at 300 mph —they could have made it in 1.5 hrs. There were also F18’s there that could have arrived in 20 minutes.

There was also a SF quick reaction force —a large one— all geared up with helicopter rotars turning there on the ground at Sigonella, awaiting orders.

They begged to launch but the orders never came and they just sat on the tarmac while our people died.

Either way, Mitt Happens is screwed!

You can be a certified RINO liberal and still get attacked on abortion.

I don’t recall it being an issue in his campaign.

He doesn’t need to fire back over this.

He just needs to stand up and affirm this as true and he’ll gain a percent or two more votes.

Allred typically pulls this the Friday before the election. It gets on all the Sunday talk shows but doesn’t allow enough time to get the real story out.

In the end this woman ignored Romney and killed her baby. No surprise the baby is dead and she feels guilty. Gloria should be happy, a woman ignored a pro life plea and aborted the baby.

LOL! I’m laughing because the left’s perceived ‘deadly impact’ for Romney is nothing of the kind, as you’ve stated. His flip on abortion isn’t a flop after all; It’s real, as evidenced by this not surprise. Great point, and I think a positive outcome for Romney, not to mention an OBVIOUS SIGN OF DESPERATION BY TEAM OBAMA.

If I were to put on my "devious cap" for a moment, I wouldn't put it past the Obama crew to "let slip" during the debate some momentous news about negotiations with Iran/Libya, etc. Zero would let it out as if a slip of the tongue, and then once the cat was out of the bag, make an "impromptu" full announcement.

A revelation like that, of course, would be huge and completely over-shadow any kind of response by Romney, and throwing the debate completely out of kilter. I know it's a devious thought, but it is the way I now think regarding the most corrupt administration in history.

The good news to come out of this is that Romney sounds a heck of a lot more anti-abortion than I thought he was.

““He regaled me with stories of his sister and her retarded child and what a blessing the child had been to the family,” Sheldon wrote of the incident. “He told me that ‘as your bishop, my concern is with the child.’””

And that is “bullying”?

Many of them women who could not care less what some woman’s rants is at this point, especially when we have a loon in office.

The better story would have been that she took up representation of Donald Young’s mother in resolution to her son’s unsolved murder and the rumored connection with Obama’s 2008 campaign, rumored connection to Wright’s “program” at his church, and rumored ‘life on the down-low’ at TUCC. If Gloria want to help ANY woman, Donald Young’s mother would be a great cause to rally around. How ‘bout it Gloria?

so lets see here; obama states in 2007, as a US senator none the less, the “slow” response to certain victims of “katrina” was specifically about them being black....no big deal...

he claims not to have heard rev wright say anything controversial, then disowns rev wright just prior to the 2008 election but, according to reports today, he’s back courting rev wright to help him with the black vote...no big deal...

Romney tries to talk a woman out of an abortion 30 years ago...hmm; wonder how the criminal liberal media will cover this....

Scorecard:
1. Romney tries to talk woman out of murdering her baby.
2. Obama votes three times to murder babies lucky enough to be born alive.

Seems pretty cut-and-dried to me.

Fine then get the Nurse who saved the Baby Born alive Because of a Botched abortion that Obama says is ok to be left with the dirty sheets until it dies. Except the Nurse who saved the Baby testified to this and obama Voted against Legislation 3 times to save Babies in that Circumstance. Mr. Infanticide

The woman had a large blood clot in her abdomen and the doctor said she would die if the pregnancy wasn’t terminated. The Mormon man higher than Romney approved the abortion to save her life. She had other children and needed to live for them.

When evangelicals and pro-life catholics hear this story, they will be flocking to the polls to pull the lever for Romney.

This would expand his base. A lot of people say they won’t vote for him because of his less than stellar stand on abortion. This could change some minds.

Me? I’m pointing out what we all know is the truth about Mitt Happens. He IS a RINO liberal!

Saying it is only honest and doesn’t constitute my personal approval of Obama - whom I despise more! All I’m adding here is that Democrats are hypocritical about abortion.

They’d attack Romney if he allegedly coerced her to GET an abortion as well as not to have one. And he’s not advocated in this election anything like saying women shouldn’t control their bodies.

This is an effort to peel off suburban women from Romney, who has an image as a very moderate - in reality - liberal Republican.
