This is why I can’t support Mitt Romney in the GOP primary. This record. These words that he speaks in 2002. To his credit, he spoke the truth in this 2002 debate. He did nothing to change the pro-abortion laws of Massachusetts. I suspect that the Shannon O’Brien come back in this debate is going to be echoed by more and more candidates.
But I also suspected that Mitt Romney has peaked too soon and most of these issues are quickly becoming both moot and an anchor for him.
This also falls in line with the latest Gallup poll. Not a lot of people have heard of Mitt Romney, but the more they hear, the more his unfavorables rise. I suspect it is because of waffling like this. Contrast him with Rudy who is definitely to the left of Romney’s presently stated social positions. But, everyone knows where Rudy stands and the Gallup poll indicates people, including conservatives, still think highly of him.
No wonder Mitt is having to spend capital now to run ads.
And, you people who label Burkhalter, LInder, Gingrey, Price, Tanenblatt, Olens, Persons, and Nancy Coverdell as members of the extreme right should back off now. Life issues are not sacred cows for them in this primary — apparently.
