Skip to comments.As governor, Romney worked to reassure liberals

Mitt Romney was firm and direct with the abortion rights advocates sitting in his office nine years ago, assuring the group that if elected Massachusetts governor, he would protect the states abortion laws.
Then, as the meeting drew to a close, the businessman offered an intriguing suggestion that he would rise to national prominence in the Republican Party as a victor in a liberal state and could use his influence to soften the GOPs hard-line opposition to abortion.
He would be a good voice in the party for their cause, and his moderation on the issue would be widely written about, he said, according to detailed notes taken by an officer of the group, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts.
You need someone like me in Washington, several participants recalled Romney saying that day in September 2002, an apparent reference to his future ambitions.
Romney made similar assurances to activists for gay rights and the environment, according to people familiar with the discussions, both as a candidate for governor and then in the early days of his term.

Peter, have you seen Jim Robinson’s checklist?
Romney isn’t just a liberal. He’s an ULTRA-Liberal
You know, after the backstabbing of Tea Party candidates by the GOP-E in 2010, you’re going to have to do a lot more than babble idiocy or make unsubstatiated claims that a fact is not a fact to win over the skeptics to the Establishment candidate.
The New World Order is alive and well. Pay to play or forget about you and what you want...peon nobody!
Great idea. Let's write widely about his moderation on this issue.
Maybe he means as moderator of its acceptance into the american mainstream, because he sure as hell is advocating all gay all the time.
Anyone, and I mean anyone who would collude with NARAL, talking about how he would get the Republican Party’s position on abortion “softened” is “evil”.
He’s evil in the worst sense of the word, he’s a mole, a liar, a sociopath of the worst order.
This example should serve as one of the clearest examples of this piece of excrement’s motivation and desires.
Not voting for him, no way, no how. If he doesn’t outright destroy conservatism/Republican Party because of his “moderate” positions, he will have hastened our demise.
I seriously am seeing very few discernible differences between Romney and Obama.
They`re two members of the same team.. just playing different positions.
Amen to that.
The lights are going out for the GOP. It`s a long, far cry from the heady days of the Reagan era.
Romney can drop dead for all I care.
I will never support or vote for the freaking leftwing socialist.
