My schedule didn’t permit me the, um, pleasure of watching the latest Republican debate, but one item from the debate write-ups has me confused. Romney both claimed that his campaigning as a pro-choice candidate was his biggest mistake and that he is tired of people who have been pro-life longer than him being “holier than thou” about it.
How can these two statements be reconciled? If Romney’s past abortion stance was a grave error, why shouldn’t other candidates who been pro-life longer be allowed to chastise him for it? If his old pro-choice stand is something only “holier than thou” obsessives should be concerned about, then why was it such a big mistake (other than politically)?
