Apparently this is big news. Bigger than when we first found out about it three months ago? Follow that link for the whole saga. He took the federalist line early this year, then told Stephanopoulos in August that he supports the party’s position on the Human Life Amendment, then his campaign manager tried to square the circle by suggesting that he wants the states to decide the issue for themselves until enough consensus has developed nationally to pass the HLA. Not the most elegant position, for reasons I explained in my earlier post. But unless I’m missing something, it’s old news.
Exit question: Does this really hurt Mitt when the NRLC’s candidate of choice takes the same federalist position vis-a-vis the HLA? Click the image to watch.
