Meanwhile, Romney says he now disagrees. After the stink raised by repug Todd Akins, Romney danced back to agree with outrage.

Romney says there should be an exception for rape or incest.

Strange though, if Romney agrees with "Personhood" repug crap, then he believes its okay to "murder" the person in the mother's womb since she was raped.

Its not ok to "murder" the person in the mother's womb if she wasn't raped.

So, combine his fence walking and you get ....

"Romney ok with murder if person is child of rapist".

Is that it? So hard to pin this "Etch-A-Sketch" guy down.

IF IT'S NOT ALIVE why kill it? Abortion is murder.
Who could be more innocent than an unborn child?
Obama is the antichrist.

GOP says the rapist can pick the mother of his child, and the mother has no choice in the option.

She must bear his child or face the Gov's wrath and be arrested for murder.

Rapist '1' vs Mother '0'...if GOP gets it's way.

But Romney disagree with GOP platform.

Why look over on the Dem side, when you're voting for someone who disagrees with you on this.

Focus...focus.

ETCH-A-SKETCH

1994 Debate with Sen. Ted Kennedy

"I believe that abortion should be safe and legal in this country,"
-Mitt Romney

2007 Presidential Republican primary debate

"We should overturn Roe v. Wade and return these issues to the states,"

2012 - Presidential Republican primary debate

"I would welcome a circumstance where there was such a consensus in this country where we said we don't want to have abortions in this country at all. Period. That would be wonderful.
-Mitt Romney

2012
"....against abortion unless in cases of rape and incest"

....sounds like GOP said screw you Mitt. "We know you're all over the board, so we'll set the pace here"

Point well made. Repugs "value life" from conception til birth. If you grow up to be an angry teen, they have no issue putting your azz to death. lol

Especially tough when they decide to voice their true feelings.

I could imagine, being a guy, if a bunch of old female politicians were trying to tell me how my body works...when they are wrong like Akins.

And in this case, imagine being a woman, then being raped, then having the republican government telling me I have to carry the fetus to term, than demand my husband raise the child as though it's his?

Heck as a husband, I'd have issues with not going to hospital right away and taking the day-after pill.

Funny how the GOP care about unborn babies so much. Yet as soon as baby is born they dont care if it starves to death suffering the pain of starving....

What type of rape is there other than "force-able" rape?

Ask a repugnant, is there a way his wife, daughter, grand daughter, can be raped other than "force-able"?

GOP and Romney are dwarfting Pres Obama, DNC, and DEM PACS when it comes to how much their spending and how much they have to spend....

....yet Romney and repugnants can't get out their own way.

Thank GOP for putting up a very weak candidate.

Spending millions each week to make Romney look good is like putting lipstick on a etch-a-sketch pig.

It was close, but of all the Republican presidential wannabes, Mitt Romney stands out as the slimiest. I propose that in the presidential debates, both Obama and Romney be hooked up to lie detectors. The winner would be determined by whose pants catch fire first. Feeling a bit warm, Mitt?

That's a shame, there should be an exception for both, even Romney thinks that and, quite honestly, I bet most, the majority of registered R's believe that. Abortion is not to be used for Birth Control, but in the very real instance of rape, not reported in time for the Day After Pill and incest, which probably means the child had no chance to protest and get help in time, there should always be the exception, just as to protect the life of the mother (real reason, not just a made up one). The only problem I have with R's is that they are stuck on no abortions, ever. That's pretty close to being stuck on stupid. Most reasonable people are not PRO ABORTION, most reasonable people feel that since you can find out that you are pregnant within mere weeks of becoming pregnant that an abortion after more than 4 weeks is just silly. If you get pregnant, don't want to be pregnant, get the abortion before the 12 week window. Come on, except in sever cases, you know right away what you want AND if you have had one abortion, you should be mandated to receive counseling before you get your second one. There are just too many ways to prevent pregnancy now a days, there is absolutely not reason for anyone to be pregnant, other than rape and incest, today. Gonna have sex, get on the pill. Planned Parenthood will give it to you for free.

My newest Grandchild, due in a few months, has eyes, fingernails, eyelashes, chubby cheeks, a good solid heart, healthy lungs,a straight backbone, a brain, makes silly faces (I've seen the 3-D or was it 4-D ultrasound, she's alive and real), kicks like a soccer player and bounces all over the place. YOU want to kill that? Really? YOU don't think this sweet little girl child is real? Poke her and she moves away, she FEELS things, but YOU have no problem killing her, right? You are willing to give HER the death penalty, because like Obama voted for, if they opted for a late term abortion, she would be able to live, but Obama voted to have little girls like her be placed in a dark room to die, ALONE, COLD AND CRYING. Too bad your parents didn't have the decency to put you out of your misery at 6 months gestation. At 4 pounds right now, well within the time for an abortion SHE IS TOTALLY VIABLE!

Sorry. The only reason he would be feeling warm is because he would be running away from the instantaneous combustion of our Messiah.
Pres Obama should have imploded when He lied about marriage during the debates.
We are living with Chicago politics at the national stage.
