Mitt Romney: What do you need him to be? He'll be it

Posted By on Tue, Oct 9, 2012 at 8:59 PM

Today, Mitt Romney was a moderate again on abortion. Until, again, he wasn't. Style counts with voters, clearly. Do waffling, prevaricating and a lack of details count? On that rests the future of the Obama administration.

Speaking of Mitt Romney, abortion

  • Hobby Lobby invests in contraceptive makers

    June 30, 2014
    Hobby Lobby, which won a Supreme Court ruling that it need not cover certain forms of birth control, invests its retirement money in funds whose holdings include makers of those forms of birth control, as well as insurance companies that cover abortions. /more/
  • Tom Cotton waters Delta roots with Skype

    June 12, 2014
    Tom Cotton skips in-person attendance at Delta meeting, not surprising given his lack of support for Delta Regional Authority and other grassroots government program. Not too surprising in this context that Cotton has been endorsed by Mitt Romney, also dismissive of that "47 percent" helped by government programs. /more/
  • Rapert's latest grandstanding; he honors a kindred spirit at Boys State

    May 29, 2014
    Bro. Jason Rapert got to grandstand at Boys State today about that liberal bully down in Little Rock — me. He might have had the crowd with him on abortion, but I think he might have found a different response on marijuana and Faulkner county beer sales. /more/
  • The Boys State open line

    May 27, 2014
    The open line begins with a discussion of my annual trip to Boys State. Attitudes are softening on gay marriage, I detected. Legal marijuana, you ask? Pass the doobie, brother. /more/
  • Dustin McDaniel continues to do Jason Rapert's dirty work

    May 27, 2014
    The state of Arkansas has filed its appeal of Judge Susan Webber Wright's finding that the 2013 law prohibiting most abortions after 12 weeks' gestation is unconstitutional. You wonder how McDaniel and his staff sleep at night filing this kind of balderdash. /more/
  • The abortion prohibition movement advances

    May 22, 2014
    The New York Times notes the spread in Southern states, including neighboring Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas, of laws aimed at requiring abortion providers to have hospital admitting privileges. The laws are under challenge. If allowed to stand they will, as designed, wipe out the availability of abortion in broad swaths of the country. /more/
  • UPDATE: Catholic bishop voices reservations about QualChoice acquisition, completed today

    May 1, 2014
    Bishop Anthony Taylor of the Little Rock Catholic diocese has expressed reservations about the acquisition of the QualChoice insurance company by Catholic Health Initiatives, which operates the St. Vincent Health System. The issue would appear to be insurance coverage of reproductive care. Despite the bishop's concern, the deal has been done, it was announced this morning. /more/
  • Reproductive rights and the Cotton-Pryor Senate race

    April 16, 2014
    U.S. Rep. Tom Cotton, you may remember, was a co-sponsor of the "Life at Conception Act," a so-called personhood measure which would give full constitutional rights to each "preborn human person" at the "moment of fertilization. In addition to being a frontal assault on Roe v. Wade, the bill (likely unconstitutional) could ban certain forms of birth control such as IUDs or the morning-after pill. The Washington Post's Greg Sargent speculates that Democratic Senate candidates may try to make this a wedge issue to help them appeal to women: /more/
