REPUBLICANS STILL UNABLE TO EXPLAIN ROMNEY FLIP FLOP ON ABORTION
REPUBLICAN CATHOLIC OFFERS NO DEFENSE OF ROMNEY NOT HAVING ABORTION ON HIS AGENDA
Former Republican National Chairman and current Romney Catholic outreach advocate Ed Gillespie went on FOX News Sunday unable to explain Romney's statement that pro-life legislation would not be on his agenda if he were President.
After a career of flip-flops on the abortion issue, Romney's most recent statement is that he has no abortion legislation on his agenda. Campaign officials have been unable to explain this comment, made to the Des Moines Register and Romney has not retracted it. Right-wing groups like "Catholic Vote" and the "Catholic Association" have gone into a deep silence on this matter.
On Sunday, Gillespie was reduced to mostly blather. He said, “Life is a very important issue in this election—as is the economy and as it national security, all these issues always play a very important role." He also assured viewers that Romney is personally pro-life.
Okay, Ed. But explain Romney's statement.
Gillespie then tried to pivot, saying the election is more about the economy than about social issues.
