Of all the GOP candidates for president, Mitt Romney is far and away the most dishonest about what he really, really, really(not kidding) believes in. Anyone following along with Mitt's talking points, quite honestly, can experience whiplash from the about faces he makes. Romney should consult with the transportation department about getting one of those yellow triangle caution signs permanently affixed to his back. It could read something like, "This Candidate Makes Abrupt Turnarounds", you know, something like that. The Reverend certainly doesn't want anyone to get hurt this election cycle. Prevention first and all.
Yesterday, during a campaign event, Romney said this about Barak Obama,
"I heard a quote today from Barack Obama which puzzled me," Romney said. "He said that, 'we should have sex education in kindergarten' -- I'm not kidding you."
Is that really what Obama said? Here's what Obama actually said....
"it's the right thing to do to provide age-appropriate sex education, science-based sex education in schools."
Factual accuracy notwithstanding, Romney blathers on,
"How much sex education is age appropriate for a 5-year-old?" Romney asked rhetorically. "In my view, zero is the right amount."
Has this always been Mitt's position on sex education? Has Governor Romney always advocated for "zero" sex education for 5 year olds?
In a Planned Parenthood questionnaire he filled out during his 2002 gubernatorial run, Romney checked 'yes' to a question asking, "Do you support the teaching of responsible, age-appropriate, factually accurate health and sexuality education, including information about both abstinence and contraception, in public schools?"
Now to the "two for two" part. Not only does Romney purposely misquote Obama here but while doing so he also exposes his own hypocrisy about the very issue he misquotes Obama about.
Two at bats. Mitt hits both the hypocrisy and deception pitches out of the park.
