Abortion a Deal Breaker for Romney

Filed under: Abortion,Mitt Romney,RINOs — Psycheout @ 1:35 pm

Mittens RomneyYou can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all the time. Or something like that. Talking out of both sides of his face has been a successful strategy for Mitt Romney so far, but with his most recent flippy flop on abortion, things may be starting to change. And that’s a good thing for social conservatives.

Mitt Romney’s confusing statements on his support for a ban on abortion are not going to play well with the Evangelical vote, according to David Jeffers, author of Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland. “Evangelicals are clear on their position on abortion,” Jeffers explains, “We not only see Roe v. Wade as bad law, but also as the first egregious case of judicial activism. We want to see it overturned, and believe abortion to be a curse upon this great nation.”

Depending on his audience Mitt is either “effectively pro-choice” or “always for life.” But when the issue concerns the murder of millions of womb babies, a principled candidate cannot take both sides. One is either pro-infanticide or pro-life. Slick Willard may be losing some of his sheen.

Jeffers likens Romney’s differing stances to a double-minded man that the Book of James warns against: “he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8)

That description, sadly, fits Mittens perfectly. UltaMITTly he seems to stand for nothing.

Moreover, Jeffers believes Evangelicals will not vote for Romney, and they will stay home from the polls all together. “Evangelicals believe it is un-Christian to vote against someone,” said Jeffers. Jeffers cites a Rasmussen poll that that 25% of Republicans say they would definitely vote against Romney.

“Romney and other top Presidential contenders are taking the Evangelical vote for granted,” said Jeffers. “Evangelicals won’t choose the lesser of two evils. They won’t choose evil period.”

Romneybots and Mittheads can take that to the bank. Romney has negative ratings that meet or exceed even Hillary and it’s only going to get worse as social conservatives learn the many contradictory positions of Multiple-choice Mitt on critical issues. If the answer is Romney, it was a stupid question.

Perhaps John MacMillan, a former supporter of Romney (when he was running for Governor in 2003), said it best.

“He’s as phony as a three-dollar bill,” said MacMillan. “When I started to look at his positions – gun control, pro-gay – I found out that he’s just as bad as (Teddy) Kennedy. I’ve been a Republican all my life, and leopards don’t change their spots. He’ll change his position, say anything, to get votes.”

It’s a good thing there’s still time for the GOP’s nominee to be chosen. We can still choose a principled, conservative Republican. A Mittens nomination will guarantee a Democrat President, even if he were somehow to win!

  1. When nomination time comes, I sincerely hope you will vote for the pro-life Republican candidate Romney and not let Giuliani represent us in the general election. That would be disastrous. Also, I would point out that your harping on an issue like this is an effective way of giving democrats ammunition and worth about nothing else.

  2. It would be impossible for me to vote for either. Even being generous to Mittens, he’s perhaps 50% pro-life, 50% pro-abort. He has referred to himself as both “effectively pro-choice” and “always for life.” And that’s this year! 2007.

    I cannot vote for someone who will allow the murder of babies in the womb to continue. My religion forbids it.

    Neither Willard nor Rudy will get a vote from me.

    See also: Is Mitt Romney Human? Tim, I put it to you that you think Romney is pro-life because it’s what you want to believe. You heard him mouth pro-life words and swallowed it hook, line and sinker. Then you conveniently ignore all his pro-abortion pandering. Why is that?

    I vote principles. Where there are none, there is no vote.

  3. I’m still not sold on the fact that Romney has only one wife. Can anyone actually prove this? Has any of you ever heard of a Mormon with only one wife?

  4. Thanks for the laugh, Mr. Galt. We’ll look into the multiple-wife scenario.

  5. Hey Psycheout- I just wanted to draw your attention to a great pro-life candidate from Maine. Dean Scontras is running for the 1st congressional district seat here in Maine, which is currently open because Tom Allen is running for the US Senate. Dean’s a good candidate and I encourage you to take a look at him and if you find it in your heart give $30 or $40.

    We need to work hard for all pro-life candidates from US Senate to US Congress, so a post about Dean on your blog might not be a bad idea either. His website is:

    Thanks a bunch and Go Brownback..

  6. I don’t know how any Conservative with a Conscience could vote for Mitt Romney. His pro-Death pandering makes him implicit in the Murder of millions of Babies who never got the chance to be born. He forced Gay Marriage through the Massachusetts Courts, leading to an increase in the Frankenbaby Fertility Clinics necessary to provide “children” to these perverse “families,” irregardless of the millions of testube babies that get chucked into a clinic freezer and ultimately thrown out like so much garbage. The only things Mitt stands for are Perversion, Deception and Death.

  7. Romney is a flamer.

  8. Is it just my browser, or is the B4B sidebar out of alignment?

  9. It looks okay to me in IE, God’s own browser. But if there’s any problem it’s Psycheout’s fault. He made some changes and edited our blogroll.

  10. Psycheout, I hail from the Constitution Party; I am an ardent Buchananite and staunch social conservative, since after all he has thrown apples at prostitutes, something which George W. Bush can not claim. Your stance on Romney and these other RINOs worry me. I come here because I see such sensible social conservative ideas such as protons being Satanic and the abolishment of marching band. Brownback, as far as the GOP goes, is the best social conservative, usually. However, I must admit I fear Brownback.

    1. He allowed illegals to participate in Social Security. The Bible says, “Thou shall not steal.”
    2. Brownback stoops to NAFTA, NATO, CAFTA, and the WTO. Such organizations want to build a SUPERHIGHWAY through America, in favor of the Secular Elite Businesses, and distracts us from Christianization. Although I normally feel that minimum wages and civil unions are akin to rebelling against Moses, I also feel that the businesses have ignored the command, “Thou shall not steal.”
    3. He supports GOP medicare. Again, the Bible says “Thou shall not steal.”
    4. He supports the war in Iraq. This intervention policy is a direct descendant from LIBELeral Woodrow Wilson and FDR, and somehow switched sides towards conservatives. Is this right? No; neocons hail from LIEberals. You seem to be supporting these ex-liberal scumbags. Also, it is said in the Bible, “Thou shall not kill.” As trying to convert these filthy Islams has failed miserably, we should let them kill each other. You must, however, admire Islam’s opposition to Liberal Filth (pornography, secularization, etc.).
    5. The PATRIOT act. Jesus should be the only one to watch over me; I do not want Satanists doing this at all.
    6. Jews vote LIBERAL. Israel, despite being embraced by conservatives, is the sign of the Apocalypse. Read Revelations.

    Ron Paul, despite being touted as a ‘libertarian’ (their economic policies I completely agree on, however), is actually rated 100% by Right to Life. He supports the Defense of Marriage Act, and the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, both of which were put forth by Bill Clinton, who may be a horrible man, but who is interested in defending our traditions. He supports securing our borders, and wishes to privatize our nation, so the Secular Elite does not creep back into our nation. Finally, he wants to unite church and state. Romney is Satanic, but Brownback and your support of him is still evidence of Liberal Filth. Don’t worry about the ‘states rights’ issue; each and every last state will Christianize themselves. Those that don’t can be nuked.

    As for his vice, Brownback is still the best choice. Paul had to keep silent about the EVIL-lution issue, since many of his supporters are ex-liberals. Please, please ask yourselves why you hate him.

  11. God has a browser? next thing I know you’ll be telling me he has a myspace!

  12. Weird. All the text in the sidebar has shifted to the left (heh) and is now overlapping some of the text in the thread.

  13. We must pause and turn to the Lord for a message during these turbulent political times. Conservative Christians should be praying at the top of the hour, every hour of the day in 5 minute intervals for guidance from above.

    God Bless you brother Psycheout, for your tenacity and dedication to uncovering the GOP truth.

  14. Sam brownback seems to be the only true conservative running. I am hoping he can rise in the polls. He can beat anybody for the opposing party

  15. Actually, I could not agree more Mrs. Gaines-Crockett. In fact, I’d say that good Baptists should be praying at the top of the hour, every hour of the day in 55 minute intervals.

  16. So maybe he’s coming around on abortion. But he seems to have way too many friends who want to have gay sex in public restrooms.
