Report: Romney Ran As Pro-Choice In '94 Because Poll Showed ‘It Would Be Impossible For A Pro-Lifer'

REPORT: ROMNEY RAN AS PRO-CHOICE IN 1994 BECAUSE POLL SHOWED ‘IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR A PRO-LIFE CANDIDATE TO WIN’ | In a new book, Boston journalist Roland Scott reports that Mitt Romney ran on a pro-choice platform in 1994 after “polling from Richard Wirthlin, Ronald Reagan’s former pollster whom Romney had hired for the ’94 campaign, showed it would be impossible for a pro-life candidate to win statewide office in Massachusetts.” Romney is now trying to assure conservative voters he is pro-life, and has previously said his switch before running for the presidency was a moral revelation.

2. He was running for office, for Pete's sake!

The quote that really sums Romney up. (He said that when he found out his lawn service employed undocumented workers he told them, "I can't have illegals doing my lawn. I'm running for office, for Pete's sake!"

3. It's all about The Principal to Mitt. Principles, not so much.

Something tells me Mitt would do fabulously well, financially, if he was to get into the office. Sort of like the Bush/Cheney legacy of mixing public policy with their private financial agenda.
