Romney: No thanks

It’s a Romney on guns post:

He’s retreating from his anti-gun past:

Romney says he still backs the ban on assault weapons, but he won’t say whether he stands by the Brady Bill. And after the gun show tour, his campaign declined to say whether he would still describe himself as a supporter of tough gun laws.

“He believes Americans have the right to own and possess firearms as guaranteed under the US Constitution,” spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom wrote in an e-mail. “He’s proud to be among the many decent, law-abiding men and women who safely use firearms. Like President Bush, he supports restrictions on assault weapons, but Mitt Romney has also worked with gun owners and sportsmen to ease the gun-licensing laws in Massachusetts.”

So, he’s not pro-gun at all. On the issue of anti-gun popularity, I thought this bit at the hotline was hysterical:

The Brady bunch has been reduced to an organization waiting for a tragedy to exploit with no one – other than Carolyn McCarthy [D-NY], who will publicly associate with them.

Indeed. Jeff says:

Like Kerry and Edwards and other fake, phony frauds, former MA Governor Mitt Romney is suddenly embracing gun rights as he lurches right in anticipation of a run for the Republican primary. Like so many other opportunistic politicians, he forgets that there’s a paper trail

And Bitter has a lot of the evidence from the paper trail.

What does Uncle say? Romney, fuck that guy.

    […] I like this observation on McCarthy from The Hotline (courtsey of Say Uncle): “… The Brady Bunch has been reduced to an organization waiting for a tragedy to exploit with no one – other than Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY), who will publicly associate with them. …” […]

    The internet is awesome. Back in the 80s, you could be a communist in a really conservative district and the mainstream media would whitewash your record to be whatever they thought the voters wanted. Now you get accountability going back 20 or 30 years at the click of a mouse.

    SayUncle » Romney: No thanks

    Gov. Romney looks for cheap date with gun owners but gets cold shoulder from SayUncle, who sums up discussion on the RINO’s recent overtures. I agree. Conservatives are too Bushed to get Miered in another Punt Administration. Link: SayUncle »

    Lets see: A fraud is someone who misleads for the sake of personal gain. A phony fraud, then, I suppose, would be someone who tries to make himself out to be a fraud, but really isn’t. (?) A fake, phony fraud, would then be a person who merely acts like a phony fraud, but is in fact a real fraud.

    I have this conversation with my kids, and unfortunately with many adults: Words mean things.

    And if someone is in favor of the “assault weapon ban” they are in no way a supporter of gun rights. Period. If one claims to be in support of owning one type of gun and not another, it simply means that person is a genuine fraud (that would be a person who really is a fraud).

    What and change out one Rino for another, no thanks. Don’t think that I will give the current President a pass, I remember that he stated that he would sign the AWB bill if it made it to his desk.

    “…but Mitt Romney has also worked with gun owners and sportsmen to ease the gun-licensing laws in Massachusetts.”

    Yeah…the license now fit into your wallet without having to fold it first. It’s no easier to obtain said license, but look! It’s now valid for five years from your next birthday, instead of three.

    That’s about it. Thanks, Mitt.

    Ooooh…and check this! If you’re denied a license to own a gun because of a 48-year-old DWI conviction, there’s no a process in place to have your case heard by a review board. Any guesses as to whether they have weekend hours, so you don’t have to miss work?

    “fuck that guy” Now that’s funny, I don’t care who you are.

    We got no ggod choices for ’08. Barbour maybe, they all seem to suck. A lot.

  9. SayUncle » Light Blogging Says:

    […] The first pro-gun candidate for president is in, Bill Richardson. Funny that the first pro-gunnie is a Democrat. I’m not sure how pro-gun he is since he voted for the assault weapons, though rumors are he voted mostly for the crime bill. The NRA has endorsed him for Governor twice. That doesn’t mean much since they’re also recently friendly with anti-gunner Mitt Romney. […]

    […] Update: Say Uncle, Kim and Alphecca note that Romney’s record of supporting the Assault Weapons Ban and other anti-gun laws make him unsupportable. Romney’s OUT! […]
