Another unflattering list about Mitt Romney’s record…

The following is from this website (link):

1. Romney violated the state Constitution by usurping the Legislature’s exclusive powers to suspend execution of the marriage statutes. He ordered illegal alterations to the marriage certificates. Lacking any binding (or even enabling!) statute he ordered that these still legally void licenses be issued to homosexual couples. He falsely told America that the “judges somehow had legalized same sex marriage,” in obvious contradiction of multiple parts of the state Constitution Romney had sworn to defend. Though he publicly admitted the four outlaw judges had violated the Constitution, bizarrely, Romney opposed citizens’ efforts to remove the judges for issuing an obviously unconstitutional (therefore legally null and void) opinion, in arrogant violation of their sworn oaths of office.

2. Romney’s “signature” government mandated healthcare plan that was endorsed by Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton and Planned Parenthood, established abortion, with a tax payer subsidized $50 co pay, as a “healthcare benefit.” (AFTER HIS PURPORTED “PRO-LIFE CONVERSION”). Romney also created a permanent, official government role for an unelected Planned Parenthood representative on his healthcare board and no pro-life appointee. (Again, AFTER HIS PUPORTED “PRO-LIFE CONVERSION”).

3. Romney increased government funding for anti-family, anti-morality homosexual propaganda starting in kindergarten, and refused to defend school children and parents’ rights against this indoctrination.

4. Romney opposes a ban on homosexual boy scoutmasters and has stated that “I feel that all people should be allowed to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.” (Boston Globe, 10/27/1994).

5. Romney’s former staff member and others have revealed that in 2002, in return for the homosexual “Log Cabin Republicans” endorsement, Romney secretly promised to let judges exceed their legal power and unconstitutionally impose homosexual “marriage.”

6. Romney cited a non-existent state law to force Catholic Charities, the state’s largest adoption and foster care agency, to provide children to homosexuals even when normal mother-father families were lined up to give them a home. Even former governor liberal Democrat Mike Dukakis pointed out that this “law” Romney was using was no “law,” but merely an executive regulation that a governor can cancel with a stroke of his pen. Dukakis stated, “The state’s anti-discrimination statutes do not preclude an exemption for the Catholic organization.”

7. Romney is often portrayed as being a “fiscal conservative.” Yet his “signature” achievement as governor, his government run “universal” healthcare plan that was endorsed by Ted Kennedy, Hillary Clinton, and Planned Parenthood, has been a total failure according to the Wall St. Journal, Boston Globe, and Cato Institute.

8. Romney increased taxes and fees by over $800 million which devastated the Massachusetts economy. He also opposed the Bush Tax Cuts earning him praise from uber-liberal Barney Frank.

9. Romney supported McCain-Feingold “campaign finance reform”, McCain-Kennedy “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e. amnesty), and parts of the McCain-Lieberman “carbon cap and trade” bill.

10. The so-called conservative governor from a liberal state that is wrapping himself around the flag as a culture warrior was rated the #8 RINO (Republican in Name Only) by the long-time conservative journal Human Events on December 27, 2005.

11. The Boston Globe reported on July 25, 2005 that Romney had passed over Republican lawyers for three-quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced, instead nominating registered Democrats, Independents, and two open homosexuals. In fact, Romney only nominated 9 Republicans for judgeships in Massachusetts, but he did nominate 14 Democrats.

12. On June 6, 2007, Romney said, “There are other ways to raise kids that’s fine–single moms, grandparents raising kids, gay couples raising kids. That’s the American way, to have people have their freedom of choice.”

13. Romney criticized General Peter Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, for saying homosexual acts are “immoral.” Romney called Pace’s March 2007 comments “inappropriate” and said we should “show more of an outpouring of tolerance.” Romney also said that “we, as a society, welcome people of all differences, whether there are differences in ethnicity, faith or sexual preference….”

14. On Meet The Press, December 16, 2007, Romney told Tim Russert it “makes sense” for states to pass ENDA, the Employment Non-Discrimination Act.
