@LDS Liberal: "Flip-Flop, period."Nothing wrong with some
flip-flopping provided you flip the right way. And he did.
re: Liberal,Romney on abortion: "The most common claim
made by critics is that Mitt Romney allowed for inexpensive ($50) abortion
co-pays in his health care plan. However, blaming the co-pay on Romney is a bit
like blaming the founding fathers for Roe v Wade, since the Constitution created
the Supreme Court. The truth is, the bill Romney signed does not say anything
about abortion but creates an independent agency called the Connector which sets
the co-pay amount."This is what he said during the
Kennedy/Romney debate:"I believe that Roe v. Wade has been the law
for 20 years, that we should sustain and support it, and I sustain and support
that law and the right of a woman to make that choice. And my personal beliefs,
like the personal beliefs of other people, should not be brought into a
political campaign."Romney on gays and marriage:"I
believe that the family is the foundation of America - and that it needs to be
protected and strengthened." "I'm going to want to see a
marriage limited to a man and a woman. I don't want to see civil union
@Mike Richards | 12:41 p.m. June 2, 2011 South Jordan, Utah "There's plenty of room for debate when the facts are not misrepresented.
Let's start there. You write whatever you want, but don't put words in his
mouth. He can speak for himself. "OK, Let's have a look....."Established court precedent in Massachusetts is that if the state
is going to subsidize health care services, they must offer abortion
services." I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in
this country, ~ Mitt Romney 1994 debate with Ted Kennedy.When he ran
for governor of Massachusetts in 2002, Romney was adamantly pro-choice. "I
respect and will protect a woman's right to choose."When Mitt
Romney ran for Senate in 1994, he favored a federal nondiscrimination law for
gays and lesbians, but after his term as Massachusetts governor, he now says he
no longer favors nondiscrimination laws for gays and lesbians.============ Flip-Flop, period.
@Freedom of Speech: "Obama's position on Gitmo, Afghanistan and Iraq are
the same as they were during his campaign."I guess his position
is the same but his actions say otherwise. It's nice to say you will do
something... but never get around to doing it. He only has another year or so
then he's out. Maybe he'd better get with it.
re: Liberal,You have defined Mitt Romney as a
"Flip-Flopper". Those are your words, not mine. He had
no "Universal Healthcare". As governor, he had the RIGHT to do
something that Mr. Obama has no right to do. Mr. Obama's healthcare bill has
nothing to do with a State's Rights. Sweeping it all together is wrong.
Liberals want us to think that the Federal Government, the State Government and
the Local Government are all part of what's coming out of Washington. They
refuse to acknowledge the limitations imposed on the Federal Government by the
Constitution. You've misrepresented his words on "gay
marriage". He told Chris Matthews, "I'm going to want to see a
marriage limited to a man and a woman. I don't want to see civil union
either."You claim that he supported tax-funded abortions. He
vetoed tax-funded abortions, but his veto was overruled. That's not support.
That's opposition.There's plenty of room for debate when the facts
are not misrepresented. Let's start there. You write whatever you want, but
don't put words in his mouth. He can speak for himself.
Mike Richards | 10:55 a.m. June 2, 2011 South Jordan, Utah re:
Liberal,It's clear from your comment that you don't think that Mr.
Huntsman has a chance against Mr. Obama. ============== Quite the contrary....I think Ambassador Huntsman is the GOP
candidate the Obama administration fears most.Why do you think they
sent him to China [out of sight, out of mind, out of the political picture]C'mon -- Sarah Palin? ha Michele Bachman?? HaHa!Hunstman
would have the blind voting block of all Repulbicans [including you, RedShirt,
Uncle Charles, etc. and every other Republican], most of the Independants, most
of the Moderates -- and a good chunk of Democrats.I'll admit - it
appears it's Romney's to loose.But he's got alot of explaining to do about
his own Universal Healthcare, support for Gay Marriage and using taxpayers money
for funding Abortions.Honestly - You really supporting a guy like
that?OrIt's just perfectly OK with you to be a major Flip-Flopper?
Re:Mr. BeanObama's position on Gitmo, Afghanistan and Iraq are the
same as they were during his campaign. So please show where he flip flopped on
these. He has done exactly what he said he would do. I find it interesting that
people who never took a few minutes to study Obama's foreign policy positions
before he was elected are now twisting those positions based on a few articles
by partisan hacks who have no understanding of his positions.Ignorance is no excuse!!!!!!
"How will the Republican nominating electorate, preoccupied with questions
about domestic policy and the role of government, respond to a candidate
stressing national security, and those national security positions? Huntsman
replies: "I don't know but we're about to find out."The
role of the President is primarily one of foreign policy and not domestic policy
therefore it makes no sense for a "Republican nominating electorate"
to be "preoccupied with questions about domestic policy and the role of
government." If Republicans can't understand this simple reality they have
no business getting their candidate elected. I voted for Barack Obama because of
his strong foreign policy positions and articulate and coherent foreign policy.
re: Liberal,It's clear from your comment that you don't think that
Mr. Huntsman has a chance against Mr. Obama. I don't either. He offers the
Republicans nothing. He offers the Democrats nothing. It is also
clear that you fear Mr. Romney. I agree. Mr. Romney's business experience
shows how totally incompetent Mr. Obama is. Your only hope is that
Mitt Romney will self-destruct. That is doubtful. Mr. Obama is in the midst of
self-destruction. His policies have failed. America is much worse off than it
was when he took office. He has spent us into bankruptcy. The people now know
exactly how incompetent he is and how full of hot air his promises were. He has
accomplished nothing that will not be overturned in court or in the Legislature.
He has wasted our resources and our trust.Mr. Huntsman offers
nothing better than Mr. Obama. Mr. Romney is a man who has the proven
experience to fix the mess than Mr. Obama has created.
@LDS Liberal: "Mitt Romeny's plan is be himself too. Only he'll be play a
Tea-Party darling for the GOP - then he'll pull a major Flip-Flop to the Center
for the General Election."Nothing wrong with flip-flop.
Apparently. Obama has a dozen or more to his credit. gito, Afghanistan, Iraq
to name three.
What a dicey call:Trying to gain votes of the
ridiculous-radical-right to get the GOP nomination....Whilst not
alienating the vast majority of America who make up the Moderates and
Independants to beat Pres. Obama.Hunstman will be himself - he is a
man of Integrity and won't change just to win and it might cost him the
nomination.Mitt Romeny's plan is be himself too.Only he'll be
play a Tea-Party darling for the GOP - then he'll pull a major Flip-Flop to the
Center for the General Election.
