I need you to bear with me for a minute and let me tell you a story. I guarantee this is important and worth your time!
Our buddy Mitt Romney, master of the flip flop, and recently been positioning himself as a middle of the road moderate in yet another effort to get elected. I know better than to fall for this ploy, and so do you if you have been reading my blog posts. Today we have the perfect example that proves this strategy is all a big show and Mitt is either part of the extreme right wing of the Republican Party or is totally unprincipled.
Mitt has only recorded one ad/endorsement for a Republican candidate for Senate. Out of all the Senate races he decided to endorse the Tea Party candidate for the Indiana Senate seat that is being competed. That candidate’s name is Richard Mourdock and here is the ad……
Well….it just so happens that there was a debate last night that featured Mr. Mourdock and he had something interesting to say about abortion that you will want to hear. Let’s watch the video of his comments…..
Did you hear what this crazy man just said? Let me quote it for you, when women are raped and get pregnant “It is something that God intended to happen”. That is his argument against abortion in the case of rape…..God intended it to happen. Unbelieveable……
I shouldn’t be so shocked I guess…..it wasn’t that long ago that we were discussing the Republican Senate candidate in Missouri, Todd Akin who in his argument against abortions in the case of rape said that in “legitimate” rape a woman’s body has a way of protecting itself against rape. Where do these guys come from????
So middle of the road Mitt upon hearing about Mr. Mourdock’s comments obviously demanded that the ad be withdrawn…..didn’t he?????
NO HE DIDN’T…..HE STILL SUPPORTS HIM!!!
This my friend tells us everything that we need to know about the Presidential race. As I said earlier, based on the above Mitt is either part of the most radical conservative element of the Republican Party or he is totally unprincipled and willing to sell his soul to win the presidency and capture the Senate for the Republican Party. In either case he does not deserve our vote and for sure he will not get my vote.
Here are a couple of videos to let you know a little more about Mr. Mourdock. As your are watching remember that this is the one Senate candidate that Mitt wanted to personally endorse.
