    The Mitt Romney Deception

    by Brian Camenker, MassResistance
    November 20, 2006

    EXCERPT

    Despite recent statements across the country by Governor Mitt Romney claiming he's pro-life, pro-family and a committed conservative, a broad investigation of his actual statements, actions, and public positions over the years indicates that he has spent his entire career speaking and governing as a liberal - and that his new found conversion to conservatism very likely coincides with his candidacy for the presidency.

    The information in this report is gleaned from public records, press accounts, internet web sites and research (as well as personal observation) by my organization, MassResistance, a grass-roots pro-family group that has observed Governor Romney for over a decade. We have analyzed his legislation, met with his staff, lobbied for and against his agenda (depending what it is) and otherwise compiled considerable research on his administration.

    We believe this report is necessary due to a calculated effort by the Romney campaign to revise his history and portray the Governor as far more conservative than the record indicates. Already, the Governor's staff is making appointments with the nation's leading conservative leaders to convince them that he should be the standard bearer for the conservative movement in the upcoming presidential elections.

    You might want to be careful about trusting anything by this Camenker fellow - at least based on the standards he himself wants you to apply to Mitt.

    Camenker Admits He Used To Be "A Social Liberal." "For much of my life I thought of myself as a social liberal. I voted for John Anderson for president and Michael Dukakis for governor." - Brian Camenker, "How A Good Jewish Boy Joined The 'Religious Right'," The Jewish Advocate, 12/25/96

    So Camenker thinks that it is okay for him to change his views but it is not okay for Mitt to change his views.

    This is a hoot:

    I expected you to attack the source instead of the substance of his information.

    But the info is out here for each to evaluate on their own. There is no doubting the veracity of large portions of his assessment.

    Sure, Mitt has come around on the abortion/embryonic stem cell research issue - and I am glad he did. I enjoy having people switch to my side of an issue. :)

    Mitt has never been in favor of homosexual marriage; therefore, he has not changed his position on that issue.

    The only issue I have a concern about with Mitt is his change about gun control. And that may only be because I have not heard his explanation about that one.

    Carpo, who would you like to see run?
    So far, Mitt is my choice.

    But I am open to a better one.

    I have seen no one I like. I do not trust politicians who have epiphanys like Romney. It smacks of political expedience.

    Both sides of Romney need to be examined closely. That's why I posted this article that is critical of him. He already has enough cheerleaders here and people need to see both sides.

    All the Republicans need is a viable pro life, constitutional originalist of good repute, to beat the clinton machine, but I don't see one so far. There is still plenty of time. I could still support Newt or George Allen, fully.

    Yep. I could run as a Vietnam veteran war hero with no purple hearts, but I wouldn't want the job.

    It's a no win scenario.
