Mitt's got their back, perhaps you should make your views known.


You know what to do.
"Look, the idea that we're subsidizing an institution which is providing abortion, in my view, is wrong. Planned Parenthood ought to stand on their own feet, and should not get government subsidy."
Since when are "we" the Susan G. Komen Foundation?

Since when is the Susan G. Komen Foundation an arm of "government"?

Still, though, it's hard to believe that the Mittbot's advisers haven't fully test-marketed this. Maybe they know something we don't?

Maybe this is some escalation of the "culture wars," or something. Or an attempt at blunting the Mormon other-ness with the evangelicals?

It certainly is puzzling, whatever it is.
I yelled at my radio this morning when Mitt called Plan B an "abortive pill". I'd like to abort his face.
The GOP would really like to make Abortion into a BFD in this race. It will motivate a portion of 'independents' who might otherwise slip away on economic issues. You know, the flibberdigibbet vote that decides every election.
@2: Listen to the clip again. When asked if Komen should continue to fund Planned Parenthood Mittens says:
“I don’t think so. I also feel the government should cut off funding to Planned Parenthood.”
Then Romney says:
“The idea that we’re subsidizing…”
He drew the distinction between Komen and the government with the ‘also’. The collective ‘we’ is ubiquitous in every politician’s babble when talking about the government and what the government should do.
Bad news for Romney of Wall Street (and probably Obama of Wall Street as well):……
If the government stops subsidizing Planned Parenthood, I say we stop subsidizing religion as well. The former provides far more societal benefit than does the latter.
I'd like to see Mittens threaten to de-fund the Veteran's Administration if this passes.

Yes, since writing @2 I've learned that Romney did separate Komen and government. I didn't listen to the clip, instead drawing my inferences from Paul's post.

You must admit that, based solely on the screen-words, it appears that the quote is directed at SGK. So blame Paul for my misstatement. :-)
Everyone but Newt is ignoring America's most important priority: the moon base.
@ 3, they know what Republicans want to hear, especially on a day when he's facing stiff Santorum challenges in two states.

I'm sure independents like a good slut-shaming, but I don't see them giving much of a fuck about abortion in this election.

Romney is trying to prove his anti-abortion bonafides to the base, trying to undo the damage of previously being pro-choice and more recently refusing to join the Susan B. Anthony List.

Please wait...
