Bush 41 went from supporting Planned Parenthood to declaring at his first debate with Dukakis that abortion was a crime that might need penalties. Romney went from being a passionate supporter of abortion rights who appeared at a fund-raiser for Planned Parenthood and endorsed the legalization of RU-486 to being “firmly pro-life.”
Many conservatives here don’t trust Romney to stay conservative if he becomes president. What if he began to think it’s his civic duty to cut the deficit by raising taxes, like Poppy? What if he flips back from his flops?
