Mitt Romney At NRA: Beware Of Obama 'Unrestrained By The Demands Of Re-Election'
The Huffington Post | By Mike Sacks Posted: 04/13/2012 2:22 pm Updated: 04/13/2012 3:54 pm

Quote:
Speaking at the NRA national convention in St. Louis on Friday, likely GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney warned that re-electing President Barack Obama would lead to an "unrestrained" assault on freedom with decades of repercussions.

Romney, whose record on gun rights is hardly rock-ribbed, tried to convince a skeptical audience that he would fight for its interests upon entering the Oval Office.

As governor of Massachusetts, Romney in 2004 extended the state's ban on assault weapons and small handguns. Less than a year later, however, he designated May 7 "Rights to Bear Arms" day in Massachusetts and became a lifetime member of the NRA.
Another flip flop?

Romney files extension for 2011 tax returns
By Daniel Strauss - 04/13/12 05:23 PM ET

Quote:
The Romney campaign said that the extension is routine and he files one every year
Quote:
The campaign's announcement came late Friday afternoon, the same day the White House released tax returns for President Obama and Vice President Biden. Obama's reelection campaign urged Romney to release more of his tax returns.

Mitt Romney In 1994: 'Now Mom And Dad Both Have To Work Whether They Want To Or Not'
The Huffington Post | Posted: 04/14/2012 5:18 pm

Quote:
"This is a different world than it was in the 1960s when I was growing up, when you used to have Mom at home and Dad at work," Romney said, as shown in a video posted by BuzzFeed's Andrew Kaczynski. "Now Mom and Dad both have to work whether they want to or not, and usually one of them has two jobs."

Romney should be proud of Massachusetts health law

Quote:
It’s been six years since Mitt Romney signed the Massachusetts healthcare reform law. That law was a framework for change, a values statement about what we believe in Massachusetts: that health is a public good and that everyone deserves access to affordable, high-quality healthcare.

Six years after its passage, our experiment in universal healthcare is working, expanding coverage while helping to control costs. Mitt Romney should be proud of the law he signed. As the one responsible for implementing it, I know I am. Here’s why.

More people have health insurance in Massachusetts than anywhere else in the country: 98.1 percent of our total population. Of our children, 99.8 percent are covered. While the number of people without health insurance in America grew from 2006 to 2010, more than 400,000 people in Massachusetts gained coverage.

This isn’t because government took over. Massachusetts healthcare reform, like the national Affordable Care Act, takes a hybrid approach to increasing coverage, encouraging people to get health insurance in the private market and subsidizing the cost for those who can’t afford it.

Sperling: ‘Laughable’ for Rep. Ryan to criticize Obama over Bowles-Simpson
By Jeremy Herb - 04/14/12 02:55 PM ET

Quote:
President Obama’s director of the National Economic Council Gene Sperling took aim at House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), saying it was “laughable” Ryan was criticizing Obama for abandoning the Bowles-Simpson deficit reduction plan when Ryan voted against it.

“Paul Ryan, talking about walking away from a balanced plan like Bowles-Simpson is, I don't know, somewhere between laughable and a new definition for chutzpah,” Sperling said in an interview on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS,” which will air Sunday.

Religious Leaders Slam Ryan For Using Catholic Faith To Justify Cutting Programs That Help The Poor

Quote:
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) told Christian Broadcast Network earlier this week that the House GOP’s budget, which he wrote, was driven by his Catholic faith. “A person’s faith is central to how they conduct themselves in public and in private,” Ryan said, and Catholic principles are what led him to cut programs for the poor so as to keep people from becoming “dependent on government.”

........Ryan’s budget seems to ignore Catholic social teaching that calls for protecting the poor and improving access to food, jobs, health care, housing, and the social safety net. And now religious leaders are making the same case. The founder of the PICO National Network, the largest national coalition of religious congregations, slammed Ryan’s claim of adherence to Catholic teaching as “the height of hypocrisy” in a release circulated Wednesday:
