"Republican Presidential candidate Sam Brownback refuses to back off his attacks on Mitt Romney, saying that the facts on Romney's pro-choice credentials are clear. Normally, Republican spats don't interest me, but this is one to watch for two reasons.
First, Romney is trying to weasel out of positions he stated publicly. Flip-Flopping was the weapon of choice used against John Kerry in 2004, and it was effective because the Republicans never let up on it. It will be interesting to see if it works as well in a Republican primary."
I think Romney has painted himself into a corner on this one. What he has come out and said about it public ally amounts to this. He felt that it was morally wrong, but when he was running the first time, he didn't think laws should be taken to make it illegal. What no one is pointing out, that at this point he is saying that he believes that it is ok for something that is morally wrong to be legal. Later he claims to have changed that stand, which he may have, or may not have. It it the classic problem of a liar who tells you he lied to you yesterday. You don't know if he lied yesterday, or he is lying today. Did he sacrifice his ideas for office yesterday or is he doing that today.
The funny thing is that he is running up against Giuliani who is openly pro-choice.
