Brief follow up to yesterday's blog: No sooner were the words about softening his abortion stance out of Mitt Romney's mouth during an interview with the Des Moines Register than his trusty spokeswoman Andrea Saul shook the Etch-a-Sketch and put out a press release "clarifying" what Mittens said. The statement basically imparted that if Romney is elected he will support any pro-life legislation. So first he's pro-choice as a Mass. governor and Senate candidate, then he's pro-life in the Republican primaries, supporting a personhood for fetuses amendment. Then he takes it back a little by saying he doesn't see himself supporting any restrictions on abortions, then his campaign says yes he will. Obama needs to point all this out in the next debate.
The polls are shifting because a lot of middle-of-the-road people are disappointed in Obama but they couldn't stomach Romney. Now that he at least look moderate they are drifting over him. Bad news.
