Chris Christie Denies Mitt Romney Shift On Abortion: 'He Is Deeply Committed' To Anti-Abortion Agend

Source: The Huffington Post

After Mitt Romney said on Tuesday that he does not plan to push legislation to limit abortion access if elected president, Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) attempted to assuage any potential doubts from his anti-abortion supporters about the Republican presidential nominee's priorities.

"Let me speak to all the pro-life voters out there, because you know I am pro-life," Christie told listeners on "The Laura Ingraham Show" Wednesday morning. "I have been with Gov. Romney the last day and a half. This is no change in position for Gov. Romney. We've talked about this issue for a long time. And he is pro-life. He is deeply committed to the issues."

Christie's comments seem aimed to preemptively address any concerns conservatives may have about Romney after the GOP nominee told the Des Moines Register's editorial board that he had no plans to push for anti-abortion legislation.

"There's no legislation with regards to abortion that I'm familiar with that would become part of my agenda," Romney said.
When Ingraham pressed on the specific wording with which Romney ruled out the possibility of tightening abortion laws, Christie blamed the statement on the rigors of Romney's campaign schedule -- "Governor Romney is speaking 20 hours a day, seven days a week," he said -- and asked for voters' trust.

"I have looked him in the eye and talked about this issue, I absolutely believe in my heart and know that he is personally committed to a pro-life agenda as president," Christie said. "If you trust me on this issue ... I know what his agenda is. I know what he believes. I know that he stands for a strong pro-life agenda."

5. Technically, that isn't a lie

he wouldn't have to push any legislation, just appoint a bunch of anti's to the Extreme Court and watch Roe v. Wade disappear.

Wake up and smell the coffee, RW. Voters are on to the fact your views don't reflect reality.

9. Christie, "Are you going to believe me or your lying ears?"

"Christie blamed the statement on the rigors of Romney's campaign schedule"

I can't believe Christie would drag out that old chestnut again.

OTOH I can believe it.

13. I actually think he's trying to keep this alive a little longer b/c

he knows this is one of Mittens' biggest flip-flops over the years.

Christie is all about "Christie 2016." IMO, he's cleverly stabbing Mittens in the back with this one.

But yes, Christie is a also a lying weasel as well as a craven opportunistic asshole.

15. If that is the case, then the guy you're sending out to campaign must not be the real mittiot

You must have an imposter going out and stumping the centrist bullshit while you've got the real mittiot tied up in a basement with his hair cut off.

16. No, Chris. Romney is deeply committed to getting elected

I am deely committed to the idea Romney would open an abortion clinic if he thought it would get him votes.

19. That's not what Mitt said, though, Chris. Mitt said he doesn't see any possible laws that could undo

. . Roe v Wade.
He said he doesn't see any bills that are out there that he could support to oppose abortion.

That's what Mitt said, Chris.

21. So he's denying what came out of Willard's lips?

Willard didn't say it, Chris, or Willard is so etch-a-sketchy that he has no clear position on anything other than tax cuts for himself?

23. Christie: "If you trust me on this issue... I know what his agenda is". Well, that makes one of you.

Trust needs to be earned Christie, and it sure isn't earned by spouting lie after lie. Buzz off.
