Questions Mitt Romney Hasn’t Answered – How Can This Man Be McCain’s VP of “Choice”?

Peter LaBarbera:

Governor Romney, you are running as a pro-life and pro-marriage candidate.

But you have a history of being strongly pro-abortion on demand and pro-homosexual.

You supported Roe v. Wade and said abortion should be “safe and legal.”

In 2002, you opposed a state constitutional amendment that would have stopped homosexual so-called marriage in Massachusetts. You said homosexuals should be allowed in the Boy Scouts of America and as Governor you officially celebrated “Gay Straight Youth Pride Day.” Whatever that is.

You sat on Marriott’s board of directors for ten years while it profited off the sale of hard core pornographic videos to its guests.

 

Why should voters trust you after you spent so much of your career aggressively promoting anti-life and anti-family positions?

 

I understand a change of heart.

 

But a “change of position” on life, marriage, gun control, pornography, and immigration all preceding your run for president?

 

Mitt Romney chose to diss values voters by not attending the Values Voter Debate. The questions above were asked to his empty podium. He has still not answered these questions.

John McCain strongly asserts that life begins “at conception”. If that was an honest answer, why is John McCain ready to name as VP someone who supported Roe v. Wade and said abortion should be “safe and legal”?

John McCain has betrayed values voters twice by refusing to attend values voters debates on September 17th, 2007 and March 3, 2008. Now John McCain is preparing to betray values voters a third time by naming a candidate with a “Pro-Choice” background as his VP of “Choice”. See: Is McCain going to screw conservatives (again)?; RNC says message received?

If the message has been received, McCain will pick someone other than Pro-Choice Romney as his VP.

Three strikes you’re out, John.

John McCain can pursue the disgruntled Hillary voters all he wants. Values Voters are America’s largest voting block, and if John McCain gives the finger to values voters again with his VP pick, expect to see values voters revolt and elect a third party candidate for President.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin has an excellent Pro-Life post entitled DNC Dispatch: The Planned Parenthood protest

    Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

    This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

    And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at palinforvp.blogspot.com

    Team McCain, well done!!!

  3. Ted,

    Thank you for your comment.

    What you say makes sense, but I believe McCain is a Trojan horse and he will reveal that with his VP choice. I believe McCain promised Romney the VP position on February 6th in return for Romney quitting on February 7th (and breaking the promise he made on February 5th to fight all the way to the convention).

    If Romney had stayed in the race, McCain would have run out of public financing money, and would have had to appear in the CNN debate that was scheduled for February 28th. Even though CNN cancelled that debate, the Values Voter Coalition set up a replacement debate for March 3rd. If Romney had stayed in and both McCain and Romney had shown up for that March 3rd debate, I believe McCain would not have won Texas on March 4th.

    Instead, Romney handed the nomination to McCain on a silver platter, including “releasing” his delegates to McCain. Romney provided cover for McCain to skip not one but two Values Voter Debates (September 17, 2007 and March 3, 2008).

    Yes, McCain would be wise to pick Palin, but he won’t. She is part of the group that McCain considers to be “Agents of Intolerance”. McCain said that his 2000 “Agents of Intolerance” remarks were carefully thought out and we would not take them back. McCain put on a good show at Saddleback, but he is a Trojan horse. Just watch. McCain will publicly announce the pick he made over 6 months ago – Romney – who has had a “change of position” on life, marriage, gun control, pornography, and immigration all preceding his run for President.

    I too share an enthusiasm for Gov. Palin, she’s a real firecracker and she’d secure the womans vote. If McCain picks Romney then this election is a comedy of errors, and I’m a Romney supporter!

    Use Romney as US Treasury Secretary or make him Fed Head. His strength is economics.

    If McCain does not pick Palin or Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana then he is intentionaly throwing the election.

  5. Thomas,

    Thank you for your comment.

    I especially appreciate your honesty about Romney.

    McCain would be making a huge mistake if he were to follow through on his promise of the VP slot to Romney. He’s very likely to do it, though, and the base would revolt. And it’s not about “Anti-Mormon bigotry” any more than being against Obama is “racist” or being against Hillary is “sexist”. It’s about their track record on the issues.
