On Monday it was reported that Governor Mitt Romney had said something inaccurate. Responding to charges about his change of positions on abortion, he had said in a recent interview that George W. Bush, too, “was pro-choice before he came prolife.” His campaign based that claim on a National Review article (which I wrote) about political converts to the pro-life cause.
The White House denied that Bush was ever pro-choice, and Romney backed down.
But Romney was right.
Please read the whole article here.
In the latest volley in the GOP primary’s war over abortion positions, past and present, Senator Sam Brownback’s campaign pounced on the controversy to accuse Mitt Romney of “untruthfully characterizing the record of President Bush on life issues.” But any untruthful characterization of George Bush’s abortion position hasn’t been Romney’s.
