Mitt Romney
Oh Mitt. Is there no position you won't run from?

Once upon a time, Mitt Romney supported women's reproductive rights:

"I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country. [...] I believe that since 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 the woman to make that choice. [...] And you will not see me wavering on that."

But that was waaaaaaaay back when he was running for office in 1994. And you can't expect a politician who promises not to waver to actually, you know, not waver. Which is why, when you fast forward to October 2011, it makes perfect sense that he would say, in his Awkward-a-thon with Mike Huckabee:

HUCKABEE: Would you have supported a constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception?

ROMNEY: Absolutely.

Yeah. Totally not inconsistent to promise to "sustain and support that law and the right of the woman to make that choice" and then voice his support for a constitutional amendment that would strip women of that choice.

But now that Mississippi's attempt to pass a constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception—you know, that amendment Mitt would "absolutely" support—well, Team Mitt is none too happy that anyone is pointing that out:

Mitt Romney's campaign, seeking to nip a potent general election attack in the bud, says he's being falsely characterized as supporting a proposed amendment to define a fertilized egg as a "person" that was badly defeated in Mississippi yesterday. [...]

Romney's current position? He supports, per spokeswoman Gail Gitcho, "a Human Life Amendment that overturns Roe vs. Wade and sends the issue back to the states" -- which sounds like something short of a federal abortion ban.

"Mitt Romney is pro-life, and as he has said previously, he is supportive of efforts to ensure recognition that life begins at conception. He believes these matters should be left up to states to decide," she said.

But that's funny. Because that's not what he said to Huckabee last month. In case your memory is even shorter than Mitt's, here's what he said:

HUCKABEE: Would you have supported a constitutional amendment that would have established the definition of life at conception?

ROMNEY: Absolutely.

No mention of Roe v. Wade. No mention of letting the states decide anything. Just a full-throated endorsement of a constitutional amendment defining life. Which is exactly what the failed Personhood Amendment tried to do.

So Mitt was committed to supporting a woman's right to choose. Until he flipped to being "absolutely" supportive of a hypothetical constitutional amendment to define when life begins. Until he flipped to being supportive of a constitutional amendment to overturn Roe v. Wade, but not necessarily committed—and not necessarily not committed—to supporting a constitutional amendment to define when life begins.

Flip-flop, flip-flop, flip-flop. The one thing we know Mitt is "absolutely" committed to is refusing to commit to anything.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The state of Mississippi tried to do exactly that.  So he must have been "supportive of efforts" there.

    Maybe he was "supportive of" it, without "supporting" it.

          So was I, actually, but my excuse is that I was 13 years old.    I was certain that President Johnson was a great man and our government was patriotic and virtuous.  In some ways those things are true, but not in all ways.

          I recall Tip O'Neill saying that he supported the war for as long as he did because he spoke only to the White House and the Pentagon.  It wasn't until late in the war, talking to veterans, that he realized he had been wrong.  He was one short step away from saying he had been brainwashed.  I can't condemn George for saying it.

      But you don't have to watch or listen to them.  Focus on what's the problem ... where was it working; what laws kept everything balanced; what laws were passed that broke it down, or network of laws; and work to restore the good laws.  Form petitions at Change.org.  Network with others.  But get active.

    •  Shodding the feet of the Gospel of peace: (0+ / 0-)

      One great thing about flip-flops (and there are so many, it's hard to speak of just one) --  they leave room for your toes to grow and your feet to breathe; no hot, deformed, fungi feet inhabit the lowly flip-flop.

      And they're so comfortable.  Full of EVA, they buffer the hard shock of pavement on your bones -- and they're affordable.

      A person in the public spotlight may have to go through some uncomfortable soul-searching.  It may make the person seem "soft" on issues ... fluid, like water (a symbol of the spirit).  The important thing is to tune out the public, and emerge prepared to act on what's right.

      Water is over 75% of both the planet's surface and the human body's composition.  Funny isn't it, how matched we are?  Yet no one, after getting hit by a tsunami or  cyclone, would consider water weak or wishy-washy.

      The human spirit and the Holy Spirit are largely "untrackable;" yet many are determined to track and control us.  It's excited the distrust of so many high-powered people, that big profits are being made in gearing up the technological deliveries of mind control methods, and even wireless emotion "reading." Human goodness could stop them, and they know it.

      You could say they've defined the human mind and spirit as the front lines in their war against the human race.  But the quality and ability to rethink things from other perspectives, and arrive at a different conclusion is HIGHLY human.  By establishing good, moral ground rules, and being inclusive of others' needs, we work out better ways to solve problems that all people face.

      For example, when it's possible to clone body parts, why aren't we doing so?  Why aren't we cloning just organs?  And why aren't we cloning just the umbilical cords?  We have urgent need to repair our damaged, aging bodies, but we needn't create a scenario for murder.  Just clone parts.  Science has proven it's possible, and industry has to make it affordable.  The beauty of it is, that every cloned part can be made to exactly match the recipient's cells, and this does away with organ rejection and the necessity of drugging to prevent rejection (by suppressing the immune system's vital protections).

      So don't be so quick to condemn flip-flopping.  Men and women are in a lifelong struggle with their morality, to find what's good and do it, and to include what's relevant to other people, and act on it.  It isn't easy!!  Loving and acting for others takes courage, and largesse of spirit and will.  But struggle for it!  It takes faith to believe in the love of God, and stand on it.

      The older we get, the more sleepless nights we have, because conscience and understanding sharpen.  Somehow it manages to derail the benefit of an increasingly fuzzy memory.  It may be that flip-flopping is a sign of a spirit in a wrestling match ... which is always preferable to the "dead calm" of a spirit in a coma.  It's OK to sweat.

    ...just in case Mittens is unclear on how the constitution works, the 14th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America was passed after the civil war to guarantee that "states rights" wouldn't mean an individual state, Mississippi e.g., could pass a law legalizing slavery again or denying rights to POC.

    This has been extended to say that the US Constitution is in "superior position" legally to ALL state laws in every respect. A constitutional amendment would, therefore, make it impossible for any state to try to backslide on abortion.

  •  Protecting tiny growing humans: (0+ / 0-)

    It's understandable to see men flip-flop on this issue, when we women (who bear the babies in question) also flip-flop concerning protecting the life of others.  Selfishness has a way of prevailing over genuine loving sacrifice; on its' face, it seems more profitable and convenient, even "green," to kill babies.  It's certainly big business.

    This eugenic stance on life has tainted the roots of every explanation and discussion, so that what we actually talk about is already skewed towards death, economic concerns, sexism, the feminist movement, dissolution of the family, and personal opportunity costs.  The tiny growing baby is forgotten, except as a statistic from undesirable community demographics, and regarded as one doomed ... as doomed as our own morality and hope for eternal life.

    God clarified the matter for me when I felt my daughter's spirit rush in (at the moment of conception), and I heard Him say to me, "You've got Vera!"  (I'd dreamed of Vera since I was 17 years old; I was 30, when this occurred.)  My instantaneous, gleeful announcement didn't go over big, at the time; but from then on, I knew that LIFE definitively begins at conception, the very moment God sends the human spirit into the human fertilized egg.

    It's about time we women became the heros we always dreamed we would one day be, by standing together to protect tiny growing unborn humans in the womb.  What earthly use are we, if we haven't the love to do that most basic, needful thing?  Especially now, when so many terrible forces, having been marshaled together, are galvanized to exterminate the human race on a global scale -- the twilight of the new Dark Ages.

    In this age of great miracles, if a woman doesn't want her baby, why not put the infant into a preemie pod, or transfer the living baby into another mother, who wants a child, or will carry it for another?  Or even pay her to carry her child, to give to another who wants children.  

    Where there's the will, there's a way.  The means and methods of doing so will develop when we take a stand together on protecting human infants developing in the womb, and their rights to life.  This must cross every party line, to each and every woman -- and men must back it up with the ways and means, and full funding.

    After all, haven't we developed many ways of preventing conception, without resorting to murdering infants?

  •  Or think of it this way ... (0+ / 0-)

    If it becomes possible in the near future to further "sex" the baby -- gender becomes defined at about 4 mos. gestation, simultaneously with hormones from liver development --  and by this, I mean not only to discover the babies' gender, but to discover its' gender affiliations (refined hormone and DNA measurements; further studies, should make that possible) --  WOULD IT SIT RIGHT WITH YOU if people chose to abort their "gay" babies?  Or abort just the females (as they do in China); or abort just the males (since they ARE the SOURCE of global aggressions, poisening and WARS!)

    Wouldn't the selectivity of these abortions smack of genocide to you?  Yes, of course ... you'd be outraged.

    So in this age, where our highest military and scientific members of the global community, together with national power brokers, are acting out the will of what they refer to as "inter-dimensional beings" (which HUMANKIND has ALWAYS called DEMONS) -- doesn't the wholesale aborting of the human race smack of genocide?  

    Or do you need to be rounded up in a Red/Blue List FEMA sweep, under martial law, and face immediate guillotining, or life imprisonment as a slave, without recourse to judge or jury, to realize that the extermination of the human race is being implemented?

    See, the "interdimensional beings" have told the global elite that eliminating over 95% of the planet's population will make the Earth a better place, and humans so much easier to dominate.  And the global elite are seeing that the demons' methods will make them kings upon the Earth again; they can take what they want, without having to pay for it.  You pay for it.

    for some bright young GOP spark in the Wisconsin legislature to introduce a "Personhood" bill or amendment. Of course, it will have to wait it's turn because Litjens (R-Town of Crazy) has been waiting since August to introduce the "Women's Protection Act".

    since Kennedy(no pity please).I can usually predict how these votes will go.I was  shocked at the outcome,especially the margin.The glee that is in my heart is how folks like Romney will explain their stance.Also Haley Barbour(think very smart,clever Boss Hogg),will now have to explain his vote.
