Skip to comments.Mitt Romney caught on "hidden camera" (Mitt, Mormons, and Abortion Flip-Flops)

Youtube video where Romney explains his and the Mormon Church's views on abortion.
Keep preaching the faith! I want a president who represents me. The choice between Obama and R-Money is no choice whatsoever.
I am a sincere conservative. And I don’t see how a sincere conservative could NOT vote for anyone over Obama. If we can get the commie out of the White House, then we can go back to fighting for true conservatism. If we don’t get him out, conservatism never stands a chance; our country doesn’t stand a chance. It’s about so much more than liberalism and conservatism in this election. No matter how liberal Romney really is, he is not trying to fulfill “his father’s dreams” by taking down America. Obama is; that’s his mission. We must stop him. The game of politics can continue after we get him out.
Good to hear. I wouldn’t have any problem voting for a Mormon who shared my conservative views on what policies the government should have. Not sure why Mormons would want Reid and Romney out there as their most public spokespeople. Seems like they can only do damage to your brand.
Newt’s getting zero bounce with Santorum out. Santorum’s numbers are actually holding steady.
Unless that changes drastically and soon, the best option to deny Romney delegates is Santorum, not Newt. Newt’s just not going to win any states with the 8 percent nationally that Gallup has him at right now.
If Obama goes back in, it will because we conservatives put him back in. If we would band together, let go of our pride and vote for Romney, then we could get B. Hussein Obama out of our White House. Otherwise, we are just playing into the Dems’ hands.
There is absolutely nobody who will be ready except Mitt. Later is too late.
You don’t appear to know what you’re talking about. Polls don’t seem to have been done since Santorum exited. And national polls don’t mean anything when half the voters have voted and we’re waiting for the other half. Everyone could be due for a shock once they see the determination of conservatives to deny the Romorrhoid his coronation.
I believe Romney has legalistically threaded the needle on this issue in accordance with the teachings of his church.
But I also believe that he lied in a blatant and calculated way to the voters in MA when he represented himself as if pro-choice. As he stressed at the very end of that video, he vetoed any legislation that itself was pro-choice with an understanding that he’d have violated the tenets of his church not to.
The choice is like smelling a fart or being covered in crap. If obama reups we’ll all be covered in crap.
Haha, are you nuts? He passed Romneycare which, as Santorum explained, was written in such a way as to allow abortion funding. He also said he would maintain the pro-choice laws on the books...that’s called being pro-choice.
Absolutely true. Thing is, there are a lot of LDS people out there who are pretty darn conservative, yet they will vote for a label out of ignorance (the non-knowledgable definition) no different than someone will vote for the guy with the R by his name, or if he’s black, or if he’s a fan of the New York Knicks.
What irks me is that the GOP-e seems to have picked someone who is a liberal moderate, labeled them with an R and thrust him in the limelight as the one we need, why? Because he’s LDS. And since LDS people tend to be conservative... well then he’s going to have a following. I guarantee you that if he wasn’t LDS, he would not have the backing that he currently enjoys. It really is frustrating to watch.
I get the whole idea of getting Obama out of office. I get that it might be better “policy-wise” to put in an Obama-lite rather than have Obama himself. I don’t agree with it, but I get it. The problem lies with the GOP itself, and someone has got to send a message to them that they don’t get to pick who represents us. They don’t run the show.
The choice is between being covered in donkey crap or elephant crap. Since neither are appealing, I prefer to lodge a protest vote in the hopes for better treatment in the future.
There, fixed it.
Yeah, I do believe a part of the strategy all along was to pick a candidate who had that solid base of Mormon support, and then build off of that. They used his Mormonism to keep him the “frontrunner” all last year while he was stuck at around 20% in the polls, most of that probably from Mormons, who are very likely GOP primary voters far beyond their representation in the population. He couldn’t have gotten to where he did without the block Mormon backing.
Mitt ain't ready to be a Republican nominee for anything and never will be.
Fox news is the only data that we do have.
Fox news shows that Santorum supporters are breaking equally for Paul (30 percent), Newt (30 percent), Romney (20 percent), and the rest back to undecided.
Ron Paul is getting a bigger bounce than Newt.
Newt needs 100 percent of Santorum’s supporters to come to him, and he’s only getting 30.
With the current numbers, Romney’s going to win every remaining state.
Yeah, you’re right. End of the week and I’m tired.
