The formerly pro-choice Mitt Romney briefly went pro-choice again today when he told the editorial board of the Des Moines Register:
“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” the Republican presidential nominee told The Des Moines Register in an interview.
That, of course, comes after Romney's very publicly renouncing his earlier pro-choice position prior to deciding to run for president. It also conflicts with his prior statements that he would seek to appoint justices that would overturn Roe v. Wade.
In response to Mitt Romney's latest flip-flop, he flip-flopped right back with Katrina Trinko of the National Review tweeting the following:
. @andreamsaul on Romney's abortion comment to DMR: Rom "wld of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life"— Katrina Trinko (@KatrinaTrinko) October 9, 2012
We all knew that Mitt Romney was a serial flip-flopper who it seems changed positions at will, and cleaned his slate like an Etch-a-Sketch, but I think this sets a record even by his standards. In the span of one day he was anti-choice, then pro-choice again and then finally ended the day anti-choice again. Nice going Mitt. Next time, would you like to try and do all this in less than an hour?
If flip-flopping were an olympic sport, Mitt Romney would win the gold, silver and bronze.
