    I still don't like him. He could be a gunner owner today, and a gun banner tomorrow.

    Thats what I was thinking "Gman". First he's pro-healthcare, now he's anti...first he's pro-abortion, now he's pro-life.
    First he's pro-gun control, now he's anti-gun control.
    Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up.

    "I'm not a big game hunter. I've always been, if you will, a rodent and rabbit hunter all right, small varmints if you will," Romney said.

    And earlier this year, during a Fox News debate, Romney was asked whether he has hunted in the years since 2007, to which the candidate responded, "I'm not going to describe all of my great exploits. But I went moose hunting actually. Not moose hunting, I'm sorry, elk hunting with friends in Montana. I've been pheasant hunting."
    Uhhh...not big game, rabbits...well moose, no wait elk, uhhh...ummm, well pheasants.

    If he is the best the GOP can do, I'll hold my vote as a protest, and let the cards fall where they fall. I can't stand Obama, but at least he's the evil we know.

    My wife and I describe him as smarmy. I wish there was a real pro 2A candidate with a chance.

    Remember John Kerry on his duck hunting trip?

    I think he used it as a campaign ad. Mitt reminds me a lot of him.

    I'll vote for a sack of potatoes over Obama. Mitt's a slimy dude, but I'm betting he'd be more inept at destroying our country.

    Any bets on an equally-pro-2A vice-presidential candidate? The big guy from New Jersey would make this ticket complete.

    Romney is a typical doublespeak pol

    Campaigning for the Senate in 1994, Romney said he favored strong gun laws and did not “line up with the NRA.” He signed up for “lifetime membership” of the NRA in August 2006 while pondering a presidential run, praising the group for “doing good things” and “supporting the right to bear arms.”

    I do support the Second Amendment. I would have signed the assault weapon ban that came to his desk. I said I would have supported that and signed a similar bill in our state. It was a bill worked out, by the way, between pro-gun lobby and anti-gun lobby individuals. Both sides of the issue came together and found a way to provide relaxation in licensing requirements and allow more people to--to have guns for their own legal purposes. So we signed that in Massachusetts, and I’d support that at the federal level. It did not pass at the federal level. I do not believe we need new legislation. I do not support any new legislation of an assault weapon ban nature, including that against semiautomatic weapons. We have laws in place that, if they’re implemented & enforced, will provide the protection and the safety of the American people. I do support the right of individuals to bear arms, whether for hunting purposes or for protection purposes or any other reasons. That’s the right that people have

    Q: Are you still for the Brady Bill?

    A: The Brady Bill has changed over time, and, of course, technology has changed over time. I would have supported the original assault weapon ban. I signed an assault weapon ban in Massachusetts governor because it provided for a relaxation of licensing requirements for gun owners in Massachusetts, which was a big plus. And so both the pro-gun and the anti-gun lobby came together with a bill, and I signed that. And if there is determined to be, from time to time, a weapon of such lethality that it poses a grave risk to our law enforcement personnel, that’s something I would consider signing. There’s nothing of that nature that’s being proposed today in Washington. But I would look at weapons that pose extraordinary lethality.
    Source: Meet the Press: 2007 “Meet the Candidates” series , Dec 16, 2007
    Q: As governor you signed into law one of the toughest restrictions on assault weapons in the country.

    A: Let’s get the record straight. First of all, there’s no question that I support 2nd Amendment rights, but I also support an assault weapon ban. Look, I’ve been governor in a pretty tough state. You’ve heard of blue states. In the toughest of blue states, I made the toughest decisions and did what was right for America. I have conservative values.
    Source: 2007 Republican Debate in South Carolina , May 15, 2007
    The candidate reiterated his support for an assault weapons ban contained in Congress’ crime bill, and the Brady law which imposes a five-day waiting period on handgun purchases. ‘I don’t think (the waiting period) will have a massive effect on crime but I think it will have a positive effect,’ Romney said.

    I think Ron Paul as his VP candidate would add an interesting twist to the election.

    I agree, I'd write in Howdy Doody over Obama.
    Obama has done such a great job dragging this country down because I firmly believe that's what he set out to do.
    Nobody could have done this much damage without trying.

    I'll take any kind of a wishy-washy flip-flop maybe anti-gunner over a definite tried and true anti-gun candidate any day.
    At least you stand a "maybe" chance.
