"Of course you get rid of Obamacare, that's the easy one, but there are others," he said. "Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that."



This came out a few days ago, but I still think it is worth putting on here.

I think the real point is that it hasn't been an issue. Had Gingrich, Santorum or Perry stated in no uncertain terms that they intended defund planned parenthood the outcry would have been deafening. Liberal Democrats would have denounced it as evil. Establishment Republicans would have lectured them about how suburban women were going to leave the party in droves. Romney's stance draws no real attention because noone takes it seriously. Everyone one knows it is just boob bait for fundamentalist bubbas. Sure, Romney is lying in a particularly egregious fashion, but, of what concern is it if he is lying to those people?

He said he wants to get rid of funding for Planned Parenthood, not that he just wants to ban the organization from existence.

It's not likely that he or any candidate will ban planned parenthood because they can't. Only about a third of their money comes from the federal government. Now I'd like to see us cut funding for them, but as for putting them out of business some more things would have to happen.

Heh. Man, good thing Santorum came up with this policy earlier. Wink

Does Romney think he can really pivot and go after independent women and latinos after spending a year pandering to the angry white male vote?

Wouldn't surprise me if he does believe so. The man has proven he isn't a very smart politician.....so this shouldn't be surprising.

Sounds nice, but not very practical. Anyway, he'll probably flop back over on this in the general. He has no convictions besides getting himself elected. I doubt he really cares one lick about social issues.

I'm sure catching breast cancer at stage 4 instead of 1 will make for good public policy.

You know what's even huger?

Abortions.

Number one provider of abortion in America at 300k a year.

30 percent of planned parenthood's total revenue is from abortion.

You said they don't care about breast cancer screenings. Are abortion and "caring about breast cancer screenings" mutually exclusive now?

Not everyone who is pro-life is anti-Planned Parenthood. Lots of women, including many pro-life women, for what is the bulk of their work: women's health.

BTW Latino's are not that different than the rest of the country on social issues and as noted, Romney's anti-immigrant talk is much more salient to them.

Getting back to my point that he seems to think there is no price to pay with independents with this hard right pandering to the base.
