Mitt Romney's new sloga,
Mitt Romney is a good liar. But not even he could sell the bull he tried to spew last night.
Mitt Romney yesterday, denying he will pursue legislation to restrict abortion:
There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.
That was of course bullshit, and his campaign admitted as much within two hours.

And now the candidate himself has conceded he was wrong:

Per pool, Romney says he'd "immediately remove funding for Planned Parenthood" as prez, excluding it from his budget.

So either Mitt is acknowledging his legislative agenda on abortion will begin on day one ... or he doesn't realize that presidents aren't dictators and doing something like cutting off Planned Parenthood would require an act of Congress. You know, legislation.

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.
