This Is Not A Real News Story

According to ABC News former Massachusets governor Mitt Romney's wife, Ann, gave a whopping $150 donation to Planned Parenthood. . .in 1994! I am glad that ABC News waited for this revelation until the 21st century!
It is a clear desperation story. This comes along the heels of the "Reverend" Al Sharpton's lovely comments that, essentialy, Mormons do not believe in God, in a clear reference to Mr. Romney.
So Mrs. Romney may not agree with her husband on abortion. What a shock, a wife not agreeing with her husband! Or, like her husband, she too has had a change of heart on the subject. A lot of people do and it is usually due to some life changing experience. Also, it should be noted that Laura Bush does not agree with George W. Bush on abortion. She is "pro-choice" and he is "pro-life." Barbara Bush does not agree with George H. W. Bush. She is "pro-choice" while he is "pro-life." See, there is not the lock-step orthodoxy on abortion that husband and wife may not agree with each other on such a critical moral issue.
We should not be concerned about a 13-year story like this. We have to look at Mr. Romney now, for it is he, not Mrs. Romney, who is running for president. The record for Mr. Romney is that when he was the governor of Massachusetts, he did not expand abortion nor did he try to pass anti-abortion lesgislation. It was as he said when he was running for governor, he would respect the state law but would not look to expand abortion. And if Mr. Romney holds his ground now, he will appoint the kind of judges that will overturn Roe vs. Wade and return the abortion issue to the states, where it belongs.
Fascinating how now 13 year old stories and asserting that somehow being a Mormon means that you do not believe in God are coming now, from the left. Lets see how this plays out.

This contentious issue divides many Republicans, and is what's going to propel Obama or Hillary (or both) right into the White House. IF, we don't get our priorities straight, which is voting for the man most likely to win, then we can look forward to 4 or 8 years of hell.
My 2 cents.
