Mitt Romney officially has no strong feelings about abortion

  • Romney, 2007: "I’d be delighted to sign” a bill outlawing abortion.
  • Romney, Tuesday "There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.”
  • Romney, yesterday "I’m a pro-life candidate. I’ll be a pro-life president.”

So, which one is it? You sort of have to, you know, take a position on these things. source

Romney did something last night that I didn’t expect him to do, and obviously Obama didn’t expect him to do. He suddenly became the moderate Massachusetts governor again.
Michael Tomasky, chalking Romney’s success last night up to the adoption (or re-adoption) of a moderate political ideology. In returning to his circa-2002 policy positions, Romney “disavowed or contradicted virtually everything he’s been saying for the past 18 months,” Tomasky says, citing Romney’s stated positions on preexisting conditions, taxes, Medicaid and school funding. source

Romney reverses on Roy Blunt’s health care amendment
A few hours thought: Ever the maestro of hasty take-backs, reversals, and changes in direction, Mitt Romney today found himself on both sides of an amendment to the Affordable Care Act proposed by Missouri Senator Roy Blunt. Romney denies he meant to tell an interviewer “I’m not for the bill,” saying that he “misunderstood the question,” but given the perception of many GOP voters that he’s insufficiently conservative, the damage may be done. The Blunt amendment would allow employers to deny any health service that violates their religious, or moral convictions — a polarizing, red-hot issue that Romney might prefer not to deal with.
