Romney in Washington

posted by on June 20 at 9:19 AM

Republican Mitt Romney today becomes the latest presidential candidate to stop at the Washington State ATM.

The Democrats, not surprisingly, have fired up the press release machine, and are using the occasion to try and stick the “flip flopper” label to a Republican this time around. The release begins…

GOP Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney will visit Washington State today to bring in more Republican dollars to his campaign. The question is, which Mitt will land in the Evergreen State? Will it be the pro-choice Mitt or the anti-choice Mitt? On November 9, 2004, Mitt told a Harvard doctor that he had evolved into a pro-life position [Time Magazine, 5/21/07]. But just six months later at a press conference, Mitt claimed he would continue to maintain the status quo on abortion.

Here’s the now-classic Romney YouTube clip:

we are just an ATM state because political parties refuse to use a primary election to hand out delegates for Hillary, Obama, etc.

Hey thanks for taking away our right to vote !

Romney was never pro-choice. He has always expressed his personal views were pro-life and when he promised to maintain the status quo in MASS, that just meant that he would veto any new pro-choice bills. And this is exactly what he did while Governor in the most liberal state in the Union. He ran as a fiscal conservative and he fixed their financial problems while doing his best to holding the line on social issues.
Now the Democrats are afraid of what he could accomplish in Washington, so they misrepresent his positions as "flip-flopping". Just a propaganda game.
