Mittens MIA at abortion debate

It’s no surprise that the chickenshit Republican frontrunner, who has waffled on the abortion issue — as he has on most other issues — decided to duck this event:

Republican presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney was conspicuous by his absence evening at a debate organized by an anti-abortion group in South Carolina.

Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, Texas Governor Rick Perry, ultraconservative former
Senator Rick Santorum and Texas Representative Ron Paul all responded to the invitation to speak at Personhood USA’s Presidential Pro-Life Forum ahead of Saturday’s key primary vote.

All four of the candidates repeated their opposition to abortion, a subject on which Romney’s position has varied over the years.

The president of Personhood USA, Keith Mason, said Romney was invited to the forum at a Greenville hotel in front of an audience of several hundred people.

“Why not Romney,” Mason asked. “He was invited but he had a conflict and was not able to make it. He also had a conflict in Iowa…”

Fun with austerity

Obama is trying to convince his allies how he’s going to concentrate on jobs — while sticking to the budget agreement he made with Republicans.

I’m sure that’s going to work as well as it did in every other country!

‘Yes He Can,’ but will he?

Has Barack Obama ever acknowledged Robert Reich’s steady stream of criticism regarding Obama’s apparent lack of interest in putting the real economy back on track? He seems to have shunned the former Secretary of Labor, and to have ignored anyone urging accountability for Wall Street crooks.

Regardless, the accountability issues will be raised again today at “Yes He Can” events around the country, good opportunities to ask Obamabots why their man has shirked his responsibilities.

Footnote: In Philadelphia, MoveOn.org has arranged a protest at noon, at the Bank of America’s 16th Street and JFK Boulevard branch, followed by a march to Obama headquarters at 15th and Chestnut streets to deliver petitions demanding an investigation of the role played by banksters in the crash of the housing market.
