A few days ago I wrote of Mitt Romney's flip-flop on the issue of Roe v. Wade, pointing out that Romney is displaying an elephant-sized lack of integrity on this matter, and that his recent flip-flop is nothing more than a slimy, spineless politician telling conservative voters what they want to hear.
Let's look back at the very first sentence in his answer on last Thursday's debate. "Well, I've always been personally pro-life." Does this lay the groundwork for another Romney flip-flop? If his concerns over stem cell research were addressed would he return to his long-held pro-choice beliefs since he's personally pro-life?
Perhaps after a failed run at the presidency, Romney will return to Massachusetts and mount another campaign for U.S. Senate, and at that point he'll look the predominantly-liberal Massachusetts voters in the eye and tell them he has come to realize the errors of his ways, and he's returned to his "pro-choice" roots.
So I wasn't surprised in the least to learn of news reports that Romney's wife Ann donated money to Planned Parenthood back in 1994... they had good reason to make that donation: (emphasis mine)
His wife's donation was made at a time when Romney was unsuccessfully running to unseat U.S. Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., before Romney was elected governor in 2002.
Back then supporting Planned Parenthood was beneficial to his campaign for Senate in the liberal state of Massachusetts. Today, courting conservative voters, Romney sees matters differently.
Tomorrow? Who knows...
Romney lacks the integrity to hold the highest office in the land.
