Those is the GOP establishment political and media elite including Karl Rove, the Bushies, Tony Perkins, Gary Bauer, James Bopp, Jay Sekulow, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Hugh Hewitt, Bill Bennett, Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, NRO, Human Events, and the Weekly Standard, among others have been diligently advancing the argument that McCain needs to shore up the GOP base by selecting Mitt Romney as his running mate because Romney is both “pro-life” and “fiscally conservative.”

And when McCain does select Romney as his running mate on August 29th as I have predicted for a long time that he will, the pseudo-conservatives at Fox News and National Review will be praising McCain for picking a “solidly pro-life fiscal conservative like Mitt Romney.” I can hear it now. Trust me, this is what you will be hearing ad nauseam 10 days from now.

The truth is, however, as I and a handfull of others have been reporting for well over a year, that Willard Mitt Romney is neither pro-life nor fiscally conservative.

Romney is not pro-life: While Romney and his supporters claim that he used to be “pro-choice” and had a “pro-life conversion” following a conversation with an anonymous Harvard researcher, the truth is that as governor of Massachusetts, Romney established abortion with a 50 dollar co-pay as a “healthcare benefit” (AFTER HIS PRO-LIFE “CONVERSION”) in his healthcare plan he signed into law that he called his “signature achievement” that was endorsed by Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood.

Romney also appointed a Planned Parenthood representative to sit on his healthcare advisory board with no pro-life member (AFTER HIS SUPPOSED “PRO-LIFE CONVERSION.”)

And, like Senator McCain who believes individual states can violate the unalienable right to life as guaranteed in the Declaration and Constitution, Mitt Romney opposes the central plank of the GOP since 1976, a federal protection of life amendment and believes that abortion is a “states rights issues.” How can you be “pro-life” and believe that states have a right to kill babies if the majority vote to make it “legal?”

Romney is a fiscal liberal. Governor Romney opposed the Bush tax cuts which earned him praise from uber-liberal Barney Frank. He raised taxes by over $800 million dollars which has devastated the Massachusetts economy. And, on his way out the door, Romney installed a quasi-socialist healthcare plan into law that has been an abysmal failure according to the Boston Globe, Cato Institute, and Wall St. Journal.

Romney opposed the Bush Tax Cuts, raised taxes and fees by almost a billion dollars, and instituted a liberal “universal” healthcare plan which was endorsed by Hillary, Teddy K, and Planned Parenthood and Ann Coulter is calling him “manifestly our best candidate?” Mitt has achieved what neither Hillary nor Barack nor any other liberal Democrat has been able to merely in instituting a “universal” healthcare plan that subsidizes abortion at 50 bucks a pop. And he is somehow a “fiscal conservative?”

The GOP elites claim Romney is a “pro-life fiscal conservative.”

Romney’s record demonstrates that he is the exact opposite–that he is pro-abortion and a fiscal liberal.

In other words Willard Mitt Romney is Hillary Clinton in a Ronald Reagan costume.

Buyer Beware!
