  • Will Romney buy the White House?

    This is an excerpt... Will Romney buy the White House? -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: February 4, 2008 1:00 a.m. Eastern Mitt Romney might go down in history as the presidential candidate who spent more of his personal income than any other in his pursuit to win the White House. It is estimated that he has already used $35 million of his roughly $250 million personal fortune. And if Mitt makes the cut for the Republican nomination, over the next 10 months he will surely surpass Ross Perot's $60 million infusion into his own 1992 candidacy. p>

    All of you who think that Mitt Romney can win in November, need to have a hard look at this website: It's run by Democrats. I'm not sending you to this site to be convinced of anything. This site is instructive as a precursor to how the Dems will frame Romney should he become the nominee--as a two-faced, finger-in-the-wind, complete phony. Here's the blurb from the site: The truth about Massachusetts Mitt and Red State Romney Having endured four years of Governor Romney's failed leadership, the Massachusetts Democratic Party is uniquely aware of the real Mitt Romney.

    Maybe it was the pressure of the moment. Being under the Tim Russert spotlight can get to anyone. Under Russert's grilling about guns on this morning's "Meet the Press," former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney claimed an endorsement he'd never won. In answer to questions about whether he would sign an assault weapons ban, Romney said: "Just as the president said, he would have, he would have signed that bill if it came to his desk, and so would have I. And, and, and yet I also was pleased to have the support of the NRA when I ran for governor....

    Romney’s growth nationally has been steady-as-she-goes, without the ups and downs that characterize a mature base of support. (It kind of reminds me of Dean’s growth in 2003.) His rise in IA and NH has been dizzying and remarkable, clearly helped by his unchallenged early ads. What happens when someone starts dropping 1,000 points on flip-flops in WHO-TV in Des Moines? (…”another flip-flopper from Massachussetts?”…) Isn’t Romney especially vulnerable to this? As we’ve seen in the myriad YouTube clips, his inconsistencies are easily channeled on video in a way that parsing Fred’s NRTL rating is not... None of the candidates...
  • Candidates, Media Won't Stop Attacking Mitt Romney Over Abortion

    Des Moines, IA ( -- Two recent polls show Mitt Romney with a lead in the first presidential battleground of Iowa in advance of a major straw poll there this weekend. As a result, the front-runner is increasingly coming under attack from both the media and other candidates over his stance on abortion. Romney campaigned as a pro-abortion candidate who favored limits on abortions when he ran for both governor and senator in Massachusetts. He has said he became pro-life in 2005 when confronted with the issue of embryonic stem cell research. Romney has said repeatedly that he learned how...

    An AP article just came across the wire detailing another gaffe by presidential hopeful Mitt Romney (R-Mass.). Apparently, while in New Hampshire, Romney was confronted by an openly gay women who was disturbed by the former governor’s position on gay marriage. And in challenging him, she may have unwittingly changed or re-changed or re-re-changed his position on “gay rights.” “There are other ways to raise kids that’s fine: single moms, grandparents raising kids, gay couples raising kids. That’s the American way, to have people have their freedom of choice,” he said. Umm… what? We’ve lost track now, but we thought...

    Former Gov. Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, gave an $150 donation to the abortion-rights group Planned Parenthood in 1994, at a time when Romney considered himself effectively "pro-choice," the Romney campaign confirmed today. Campaign spokesman Kevin Madden said Ann Romney had no recollection of the circumstances under which she donated the money. Madden said he did not know whether the former governor was aware of the donation, but he noted that Romney had been publicly committed to upholding a woman's right to an abortion until late 2004. "This is an issue that the governor has changed his position on, that the...

    Washington, DC ( -- Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says he's getting tired of the questions about his shift a few years ago from supporting to opposing abortion. In a television interview last night, he said he wouldn't be barraged with so many questions if he had switched from pro-life to pro-abortion. The comments came during a Monday night interview on the Fox News Channel program "Hannity and Colmes." Romney has frequently explained how he became pro-life a few years ago after having to deal with the issue of embryonic stem cell research as governor -- after campaigning as a...

    BOSTON Apr 5, 2007 (AP)— In boasting about his lifelong experience as a hunter, Mitt Romney may have shot himself in the foot. The Republican presidential contender has told audiences on several occasions, most recently this week in gun-savvy and early voting New Hampshire, that he has been a longtime hunter. But it turns out he has been on only two hunting trips. Critics said it was the latest example of a White House aspirant willing to say anything to reach the Oval Office. "Whether he's pretending to be a hunter, misleading people about loaning his campaign millions of dollars...

    When he ran for the U.S. Senate in 1994 and for Massachusetts governor in 2002, Mitt Romney made it clear he believed abortion should be "safe and legal" and that he supported "the right of a woman to choose" to terminate a pregnancy. But in an interview with The Bee on Wednesday, Romney, a Republican presidential candidate trying to appeal to social conservatives, described a change of heart on abortion more than two years ago. He said he now believes states should be allowed "to pursue pro-life legislation." "I've changed my view with regards to the role of government in...

    Washington, DC ( -- Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and GOP presidential candidate, fielded yet another question on the issue of abortion over the weekend. During a lengthy interview with ABC News' "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" on Sunday, Romney restated his newfound pro-life views. A former supporter of legalized abortion, Romney has taken a 180 degree turn and now opposes both abortion and embryonic stem cell research. Asked about his beliefs now, Romney told ABC News that "abortion is taking human life" and discussed how human life begins at conception. "There's no question but that human life begins...

It's a time for action." The ad is set to air starting Wednesday in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Michigan and Florida. It is the first ad by a top-tier contender in a campaign...

    I think I'm done with the campaign of Willard Mitt Romney. I'm tired of it. His campaign and the potential for his nomination has jumped the shark. No Republican candidate for President has ever more deserved the title "Multiple Choice Mitt." I'm tired of the explanations and I'm tired of the dodges. First there was abortion. He was for it, then really for it, then really, really for it, then indifferent to it, and now against it. Some of his supporters and people on his campaign have called Sam Brownback pro-choice. At least Sam has never been multiple choice. And...

    DES MOINES, Iowa Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney conceded that the war in Iraq has been poorly managed and may hurt Republicans again next year. But he refused to oppose the course President Bush has charted. Romney, who was meeting with activists across central Iowa, told The Associated Press that his support for Bush will not hurt his chances of winning the G-O-P presidential nomination. Romney concedes much of the strategy used after Saddam Hussein's capture has fallen short. He said the U-S underprepared and was understaffed "in terms of our military team."

    WASHINGTON - Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee expressed skepticism Tuesday over rival Mitt Romney’s assertion that prior to 2004, he “hadn’t given a lot of thought to when life began.” “I’m not going to say whether I believe it or not,” Huckabee told The Examiner. “I would find it very difficult to think that any person who’s been in elected politics on either the Democratic or Republican side had not sat down and thought through that issue very, very carefully, because it’s one that is a defining issue for so many of us, particularly in the Republican Party — more...

    "For decades, pro-life activists have been in the business of winning hearts and minds to their cause. Powerful arguments about the humanity of the unborn have moved public opinion, and a pro-life political force has made ambitious politicians feel the heat, whether or not they see the light. Pro-lifers' faith in the power of persuasion has been rewarded, and their political clout increased, by important converts, including Presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush. Mitt Romney has also changed his position on abortion, but some social conservatives argue that membership in their ranks should be closed to this most recent...
