Dime Dropper

Willard Mitt went to South Carolina, and in one short speech made himself look sillier than a green grocer at a gristle convention.

According to the chairman of the Spartanburg County Republican Committee, Romney told him that he (Romney) is "pro-life." Rick Beltram, the chairman, told the Boston Herald, "I had a meeting with him one-on-one and he told me he is definitely pro-life." And Romney told the Herald that "I am, if you will, personally pro-life." (source: Boston Herald, 2/23/2005)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Not according to the National Review which last wrote "Mitt Romney has been pro-choice on abortion." (source: National Review, 9/9/2004)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Not according to Willard Mitt's own Lightweight Lieutenant Governor Sherry Kerry Healey who in 2002 said, "There isn't a dime of difference between Mitt Romney's position on choice and Shannon O'Brien (his opponent, who had been endorsed by NARAL)." (source: Associated Press, 10/3/2002)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Not according to Planned Parenthood, who said that in 1994 Romney "cast himself as an abortion-rights supporter," and that his aides said was "consistent in his pro-choice position" (source: Boston Herald, 3/19/1994)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Not according to members of the Massachusetts Republican State Committee who said that Romney "has committed himself to preserving abortion rights, has refused to sign a no-new-taxes pledge, and has called for linking the minimum wage to inflation." (source: NewtonGOP.com, 9/30/2002)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Then why, in 1994, did Romney say "I believe society should allow individuals to do whatever they choose" and in 1999 say, "we have a choice - whether you are pro or against abortion is irrelevant." (source: WGBH, 3/29/2002)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Then why did Romney say 'he became committed to legalized abortion after a relative died during an illegal abortion, and that the abortion made him see "that regardless of one's beliefs about choice, you would hope it would be safe and legal." (source: Boston Herald, 10/26/1994)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Then why did Romney say he would be a strong supporter of pro-abortion laws, "Let me make this very clear: I will preserve and protect a woman's right to choose." (source: priestsforlife.org)

Personally pro-life, if you will?

Then why did Romney say that he would protect the current pro-choice status quo in Massachusetts, and that women should be free to choose based on their own beliefs, not the government’s. (source: his own web-site)

Or was he simply saying those things to get elected? And what else will he say to get elected?

And what type of person runs for office saying they are pro-life, but have no interest in trying to change anti-pro-life public policies? And isn't there something Willard Mitt can take for this? And if he has no interest in changing public policy, why is he running for office in the first place?

Okay, enough about choice.

Let's turn to something Southerners actually care about - horses!

Hey Rick Beltram, are there many horse farms in South Carolina?

And did you know that Willard Mitt's Department of Revenue recently set the excise value of horses at $10,000. (source: MGL, c.59, s.8a)

Per horse!

Let us guess, Fraudo, you're personally anti-tax, if you will, too, right? But pro-horse.
