His legislative record speaks for itself.Ok, so you see it more as a probability/weighted outcomes thing than a moral hardline thing. Makes sense. Thanks for explaining.
Well, but that's sort of the thing about Romney, he seems to be vague and shapeshifting with his opinions. He says he'll shut down Planned Parenthood ASAP but then somewhere else he says he doesn't oppose contraception. In regards to the Blunt amendment, first he said he opposed it then he said he misunderstood and supports it. With abortion, he repeatedly says he is pro-life (as far as I understand, that means anti-abortion) but then he had that quote in Iowa of "no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda." I don't understand where his boundaries are and that makes me uncomfortable. And as President, he would be leader of all those not-currently-so-prominent politicians. I don't have a good sense of the future in terms of social policies with him, and with what he may or may not do. And it's to the point in campaigning where it's important to make the widest appeal, so of course he and Obama are both going to lean more moderate right now than they would probably actually operate as President. My "so on" includes fair pay and gay marriage.
