Do you know why Romney used to be pro-choice? (The answer and Romney's

subsequent adoption of the anti-choice stance should disgust anyone with a heart that feels.)

But when Mitt Romney started running for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, he had to execute a 180 degree turn for the GOP's conservative primary voters . . . he had to convince his party's evangelical base that what happens in Boston stays in Boston. And that included desecrating the memory of Ann Keenan, the sister of Romney's brother-in-law who died at the age of 21 in 1963 after a botched, illegal abortion.

. . . .

That's what makes Mitt Romney's abortion about-face all the more stunning and a disturbing window into the character of the man who may yet become the 45th president of the United States. For him, the political trumps the personal. To put it another way, on his road to the White House, Mitt Romney threw his "dear, close family relative" under the bus.

What an absolute piece of shit this Romney is. No wonder even the Rape-publicans can't stand him.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd WELCOME George W. Bush if Romney were the alternative.

Bush was just stupid. Romney is truly evil.

botched, illegal and unsafe abortion and he just pisses on her memory (and his former position), all to court the favor of a bunch of friggin' loonies.

What an absolute fucking shitstain he is. Words fail me.

But the rate of the de-evolution is astonishing.

She's old enough she probably doesn't anymore. So now he can be ANTI and it doesn't affect him personally.
