Mitt Romney ran to the right of lunatics such as Newt Ginrich and Rick Medicine Man Perry during the Primaries.

He was more anti immigrant, anti China, anti abortion than any of the crazies. He out-crazied Michelle Bachmann.

He had to do that to win a GOP Primary of voters who did not like him, did not trust him and who really did not want him. They now have to remain convinced that they hate the black guy more than they hate the Massachusetts Liberal.

The GOP hates Romney. They would rather vote for anyone but Romney but the GOP delivered no-one else for them.

Now all of their reasons for distrusting him are coming out and not one of the so called Conservative leaders will raise an alarm.

In 1999 Romney was  part of an investment group that invested $75 million in Stericycle, a medical-waste disposal firm that was then  attacked by anti-abortion groups for disposing of aborted fetuses collected from family planning clinics. He personally made $10 million from the deal. The so called pro-life movement, they are now silent on this.

So let's be clear. In 1999 ProLife forced birth groups were protesting Stericycle. In 2012 they are now campaigning for the man who pushed $75 million into the hands of an abortion profiteer. That stinks, even for the GOP.

The GOP lie more about "Obamacare" than they breathe, one of their big lies is that it promotes abortion. It does nothing  to either extend (sadly) or reduce access to abortion, that is guaranteed by both the Act and a Presidential order.The GOP ignores that the "father" of that act, Mitt Romney, allowed for abortion to be covered under Romneycare and he also profited from doing so.  

So OK, let us think like a Republican. This is old news, it was before he was "Severely Conservative".

No. To Mitt Romney, money comes first.

The ultra-right wing Daily Mail outed him.

In 2008, so called Pro Life groups protestedFresenius Medical Care. Mitt Romney showed how severely Conservative he was by investing in them, he got rid of his shares in the German Stem Cell research company just before his 2012 run.

Mitt Romney claims to be strong on China and Iran. He held stocks in Komatsu and Schlumberger, firms that have had strong business interests in Iran.

Romney has advocated "getting tough on China". It is hard to do that when among the interests he held were the Chinese businesses Hang Lung and Komatsu.

OK, Mitt has so much money that he has to hire other people to help find it new people to play with. Mitt now claims he runs all of his business interests as a blind trust.

So that means he must have lied in the run up to the 2008 election.

In 2007  Romney had assured critics that his trustee would only allow his money to play with investments that would not clash with his positions or Republican party stances.

Romney has a money issue. Lies will not help him, so all the GOP will do is cover it up.

GOP2012: We don't like him, don't want him, don't believe him but trust us USA we think he is telling the truth this time.

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.
