Wait a second

There's more Romney coverage after all.

In an attempt to stop the bleeding with the social conservatives Romney made two key hires in that community. From the Hotline...

Beset by questions about his committment to social conservatism, Gov. Mitt Romney today adds two validators to his team. Gary Marx, the current exec. dir of the Judicial Confirmation Network and formerly the Bush-Cheney campaign's chief staff liaison to social conservatives, will join Gov. Mitt Romney's PAC as an adviser. Also, Jay Sekulow, a constitutional lawyer who's argued numerous cases of import to social conservatives before the Supreme Court, has endorsed Romney and will serve as an adviser.

Meanwhile over at the Fix.

McCain hires another Bush insider. (yawn.)

Governor Romney on Fox News
In case you missed it, Governor Mitt Romney recently discussed several issues with Fox News’ Carl Cameron. Here are some excerpts of what Romney said.

On Life Issues:
“Upon a full examination of the sanctity of life and when life begins, there is no question, when you put together all the DNA, you've got life and it's human. And I recognize that every civilized society respects human life. And on that basis, I came out and said, look, I am pro-life. Let there be no ambiguity.”

On Gay Marriage:
“I want gay individuals to have equal rights in housing and equal rights in education. I don't believe in discrimination and I don't believe the American people do. That’s a fundamental principle. At the same time, just as fundamental is the principle that marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. And to suggest somehow that those two things can’t co-exist, that respecting rights of people who think differently and make different choices in their life that that can't go together with preserving marriage is just not right.”

On Religion:
“The name on my church is actually the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I do believe in Jesus Christ is the son of God. But of course there are many others in our country that don’t believe that They believe in other faiths and whether that’s the Jewish religion or Muslim religion or others and they are entitled to do that. Look, the sixth article of the Constitution of the United States got it right. It said no religious test shall ever be required for qualification for office or public trust in these United States.”

Too bad Romney can't buy back all those babies that died during the time he was pro-choice when he needed to win elections in Mass.

Or the babies who died while Bush did not promote a Constitutional Amendment to protect life. Unfortunately, while I may believe in state's rights ... the right to life is the biggest and grandest right of all. Given by God, not by the Constitution. This is an issue that will not be solved by Governors. It will be solved a pro-life President who has the balls, the skill, and the political capital to get the job done.

The only place Mitt has been going is downhill very quickly.

How can you write that when Mitt presided over the deaths of untold unborn babies while saying he wanted abortion to be "safe and legal" and said he would fight to protect and maintain Roe v Wade?

We're seeing unbelievable audacity here. Don't you know these quotes are out there for all to see? This man is an unMITTigated hypocrite.

Sekulow's strong public endorsement of Romney will likely go about as far as his strong public endorsement of Harriet Myers for the Supreme Court.

Who in elected office is not presiding over the deaths of unborn babies right now?

All elected officials are. But many are speaking out about it and want the law changed, not praising Roe v Wade and saying abortion should be "safe and legal" like Romney.

That's a liberal.
