My issue is that I have a memory.
I remember Romney taking on Ted Kennedy years ago. Many of us were happy about the prospect of a conservative taking on the dangerous old fool.
But I remember that we were all terribly disappointed when, on issue after issue, Romney buckled, positioning himself as not as the AntiTed, but as the SemiTed. Same old, same old.
And now Romney wants us to think he's a conservative. ("But baby, that was last night! Don't keep bringing up the past!")
Though obviously not ideologically friendly to my position, Joan Vennochi of the Boston Globe reminds us of what Romney hopes we'll forget, on abortion and homosexual activism. He's been insistently pro-abort in the past, and sent his well-wishes to a "Gay" "Pride" activity. Human Events lists Romney as a Top Ten RINO:
Has said, “I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country.” Supports civil unions and stringent gun laws. After visiting Houston, he criticized the city’s aesthetics, saying, “This is what happens when you don’t have zoning.”As a Christian, I believe in conversion. I just want to hear Romney's testimony. There is every objective reason for him to have changed his mind on baby-butchery, on special rights for sexual perversions, on gun grabbing. I just want to know when it happened, how he figured out he was dead wrong, and why he thinks as he does now.
Otherwise, I just think Romney's sweet-talking me to have his way with me.
