Mitt Romney on Abortion
[DDET What are Mitt Romney’s views on abortion?]
“Well, I think all of us — I believe almost all of us in the room would say that we’d love to have an America that didn’t have abortion. But the truth of the matter is that — (applause) — that’s not what America is right now. That’s not where the American people are right now, and so I’d like to see Roe v. Wade overturned and allow the states and the elected representatives of the people and the people themselves have the ability to put in place pro-life legislation.
And of course it’s our aspiration that at some point we’ll see a nation that doesn’t have abortion. But until that time, I certainly believe that allowing states and citizens and their representatives to fashion their own laws to protect the sanctity of life is very, very important.
I recognize that for many people, that is considered an act of murder, to have an abortion. It is without question the taking of a human life, and I believe that a civilized society must respect the sanctity of a human life. But we have two lives involved here: A mom and unborn child. We have to have concern for both lives. And so the expression of our compassion and our consideration — and work to change hearts and minds — and that’s the way, in my view, we’ll ultimately have a society without abortion.” — 8/5/07 at Des Moines, IA debate[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney flip-flop on abortion?]He did flip from being politically pro-choice to pro-life while he was Governor, but he has never flopped back to being pro-choice again.

[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s record on abortion while Governor?]Governor Romney came down on the side of life on every single decision that came to his desk. His conversion to the pro-life movement didn’t go unnoticed. Mitt was given an award at a Citizens for Life dinner and had this to say: “I recognize it is awarded for where I am on life, not for where I have been,” he says. He made his intentions clear. He wanted to be the next in a long line of past presidential converts, on the abortion issue. “George Herbert Walker Bush, Henry Hyde, Ronald Reagan. Each of them has made a meaningful contributions to this cause,” he continued.[/DDET]

However, Mitt has also said “It is time to move beyond typical Washington politics, and offer support for stem-cell research techniques that bring science and ethics together to promote life, protect life, and save lives.” Adult stem-cell research has produced more effective results than embryonic stem cells, and adult stem-cell research does not destroy life.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on American Culture and Values

Mitt Romney on Global Warming and Cap and Trade
[DDET Does Mitt Romney believe in Global Warming?]“I am uncertain how much of the warming, however, is attributable to man and how much is attributable to factors out of our control. I do not support radical feel-good policies like a unilateral U.S. cap-and-trade mandate. Such policies would have little effect on climate but could cripple economic growth with devastating results for people across the planet.” — Mitt Romney No Apology, p. 227[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney Support Cap and Trade?]No. Gov. Romney has written about his disdain for Cap and Trade in his book, done numerous interviews denouncing Cap and Trade, written several op-eds in opposition, and worked feverishly to elect conservatives who don’t support Cap and Trade. http://mittromneycentral.com/2010/06/30/mitt-romney-responds-to-obamas-cap-and-trade-meeting-with-senators/[/DDET]

More coverage can be found at our Card check issues page.
Mitt Romney on the Economy
[DDET How will Mitt Romney help our economy produce more jobs?]Get government out of the way. Lower the corporate tax rate and repeal the job-killing items of legislation that have been passed in last few years. Open up new markets to our goods and expand the amount of trade to countries we currently trade with.[/DDET]
[DDET What experience does Mitt Romney have in the private sector?]From 1978 to 1984, Governor Romney enjoyed a successful tenure as Vice President at Bain & Company, a leading management consulting firm, helping businesses grow and improve their operations. In 1984, Romney founded and led Bain Capital, now one of the nation’s most successful venture capital and investment firms. He later took a temporary leave of absence to return to Bain & Company as CEO at a time of financial turmoil to lead a turnaround of the organization.[/DDET]
[DDET How was job growth for Massachusetts while Mitt Romney was Governor?]Mitt Romney came into a state that had no pipeline, no sales force that called on companies and encouraged them to come into the state. There was no activity of any significance to bring jobs to the state. And he went to work with the legislature to try and change that. It took the a while to get all the incentives in place. In January 2004, Massachusetts unemployment was 6.3% and it was down to 3.8% in October 2007.[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney support TARP?]”Well, it [TARP] was the right thing to do. You know, I remember talking to Senator McCain — and he was in the middle of a presidential campaign — he said “Look, it is very bad politics to be for TARP. On the other hand, it’s the right thing for the country.”
And that’s why he voted for it. That’s why a lot of Republicans voted for it — they knew it was bad politics. But they also recognized that if we saw a cascade of bank failures — one after the other, after the other — that the entire free economy would grind to a halt in this country and probably in various places around the world.
We were on a precipice which, you know, now we can sit back and say “Oh, it wasn’t so scary.” Well, frankly, it was a very scary time for a lot of people. And that’s something which was resolved.”[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney support Obama’s stimulus package?]No, he did not. In fact, he published his own ideas for the economy at http://mittromneycentral.com/op-eds/a-republican-stimulus-plan-act-now/[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support bail-outs?]No. The free market must have winners and losers in order to grow. When the government picks winners and losers, it always hurts growth. The most famous example of Mitt rejecting the idea of bail-outs was with the auto bail-outs. Structured bankruptcies would have been a much better way to turn GM and Chrysler around.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support the Bush tax cuts?]Yes, they should be made permanent.[/DDET]
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s tax policy?]Mitt signed a pledge to not raise any taxes as president in the 2008 election and he did not raise any taxes as governor of Massachusetts.[/DDET]
[DDET What does Mitt Romney think about Paul Ryan’s budget proposal called the ‘Path to Prosperity?]Find out for yourself here.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support free trade?]Mitt thinks the U.S. should re-negotiate trade deals with China and other countries, open up more markets to American goods and services, and allow businesspeople to negotiate trade instead of politicians.[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney layoff a ton of people?]As in any business, there are good times when you add workers and bad times when people need to be laid off. Over Mitt’s entire career, he has created FAR more jobs than he has ever laid off. There’s a reason Gov. Romney has been called the “best businessman in North America”.[/DDET]
[DDET Has Mitt Romney Ever Let a Company Go Bankrupt?]http://americaneedsmitt.com/blog/2011/06/16/mitt-romney-company-bankrupt/[/DDET]
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s view on protectionism?]In his book “No Apology”, Mitt Romney writes that protectionism stifles productivity.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Gay and Lesbian Issues
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support gay rights?]Mitt Romney has pledged to fight discrimination based on sexual orientation and supports the same rights for all citizens. However, marriage is not a right because it is a religious institution that the government has no right to legislate.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support gay marriage?]No. Marriage is a religious institution that has been defined as between one man and one woman. It would be wrong for government to try to change than defintion.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support a constitutional amendment to define marriage as between a man and a woman?]Yes. Gov. Romney was on the front lines of this battle in Massachusetts as you can see http://www.deseretnews.com/article/595072380/Romney-calls-for-marriage-amendment.html[/DDET]
[DDET Is Mitt Romney responsible for gay marriage becoming law in Massachusetts?]Mitt fought the initiative every step of the way. Watch for yourself at http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=2219920n and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rQ7s7NKql8&[/DDET]
[DDET Why did Mitt Romney order town clerks to begin printing marriage license for gay couples?]The Massachusetts Supreme Court validated Gay Marriage and ordered the Massachusetts Legislature to make it legal. As a result, Mitt Romney had to follow the Massachusetts Supreme Court.[/DDET]
Info on Mitt’s positions on same-sex marriage can be found here.
Mitt Romney on Education
[DDET What are Romney’s general views on education?]Mitt is open to the idea of eliminating the Department of Education, wants to give parents more say in their children’s education, and wants merit pay.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support choice in education? (School vouchers)]Yes. Romney has expressed support for means-tested vouchers–through which households below a particular threshold receive vouchers of equal value–that would fund student attendance at public or private schools, including religious schools.
In the past, Romney has pledged support for a means tested school voucher program.
[DDET Does Mitt Romney Support No Child Left Behind?]Mitt supported No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and thinks it is an important first step toward enhanced accountability. However, he sees room for improvement. Mitt would like to see modifications made in terms of giving states that are meeting or exceeding the testing requirements some additional flexibilities in how student performance is measured.[/DDET]
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s record on education while Governor?]In 2004, Governor Romney established the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship Program to reward the top 25 percent of Massachusetts high school students with a four-year, tuition-free scholarship to any Massachusetts public university or college. Massachusetts had the top rated school system among all the states when Mitt left office in 2007.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support abstinence education in schools?]”Abstinence education gives young people the support they need in making the decision to postpone sexual activity until they are mature enough to handle the emotional, moral and financial responsibilities of parenthood. This is more than teaching kids to say no – it will help them preserve self-esteem and build character.” [/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Energy
[DDET What are Mitt Romney’s proposals to make America energy independent?]Mitt supports an all of the above approach to achieving energy independence. More domestic drilling, more nuclear, clean coal, wind, solar, you name it.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support drilling in ANWR and the outer continental shelf?]Romney openly supported President Bush’s push for opening ANWR in 2005.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Illegal Immigration
[DDET What are Mitt Romney’s proposals to stop illegal immigration?]
- Securing the border is priority number one.
- Those who have come to the United States illegally should not be given amnesty or an easier path to citizenship over those already in line.
- An employer verification system must be implemented to ensure jobs are not given to illegal immigrants.
- Illegal immigrants should be required to return to their home country.
- Giving tuition breaks to the children of illegal immigrants needs to stop.
- Federal funding for cities who consider themselves sanctuary cities should be reduced.
- The United States needs to be made more appealing to legal immigrants.
- Ending illegal immigration only strengthens legal immigration.
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support Arizona’s immigration law?]“Arizona’s new immigration enforcement law is the direct result of Washington’s failure to secure the border and to protect the lives and liberties of our citizens,” Romney said.
“It is my hope that the law will be implemented with care and caution not to single out individuals based upon their ethnicity,” he added. “It is increasingly clear that the time has come for Washington to fulfill its responsibility for border security.”[/DDET]
[DDET What are Mitt Romney’s views on the 14th amendment?]”My view is that we should not have a policy in our immigration structure that says that if a child is born here to illegal immigrants then, by right, the entire family is brought in based upon that child’s citizenship,”[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney hire illegal aliens to do landscaping at his home in Massachusetts?]Mitt Romney hired a company on the explicit condition that they did not employ illegal aliens. However, it was later discovered that the company lied to Gov. Romney and illegal aliens had worked on his yard. After Mitt started getting a lot of support from groups and voters who wanted a candidate who will secure our borders and be tough on illegal immigration, Rudy Giuliani famously tried to make a campaign issue out of the landscaping issue in one of the 2008 debates. However, Mitt’s explanation was so simple and straightforward that he even won the endorsement of Tom Tancredo when he dropped out of the race.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Limited Government
[DDET What does Mitt Romney feel is the proper role of government?]Way too big of a question to answer adequately in a little blurb like this, but overall he wants to return power to the states on virtually everything that the constitution doesn’t expressly give the federal government authority on. This is an area where I think a President Romney would surprise a ton of people. Gov. Romney already has a massive list of federal programs that will be eliminated as quickly as possible if he becomes President, but he hasn’t allowed the list to become public because of the history of demagoguery whenever huge changes are proposed.[/DDET]
[DDET How will Mitt Romney reduce to size and scope of government?]Eliminate and consolidate numerous federal programs, return lots of power and responsibilities to the state, tackle the entitlement mess, simplify the tax code, and more which you can read about in his book “No Apology”.[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney shrink or expand the government while he was Governor?]When Gov. Romney was elected, Massachusetts faced a $3 billion deficit and in less than 4 years as Governor, Mitt had reduced spending and grown the economy so much that Massachusetts had a large rainy day fund.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Appointing Judges
[DDET What kind of person would Mitt Romney appoint to SCOTUS if he were President?]Strict constitutionalists. Think Scalia, Roberts, Thomas, and Alito.[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney appoint more Dem judges than GOP while he was Governor?]If you look at the party affiliations of all of the judges Gov. Romney appointed without context, you would see some democrats there. However, a lot of the judges Mitt appointed were unaffiliated. It’s a Massachusetts phenomenon, but unaffiliated often means right-leaning and/or conservative because it’s almost impossible to get anywhere in Massachusetts as a republican. Also, comparing Mitt Romney appointments to other Massachusetts governors will show that Mitt’s record at appointed judges is the most conservative in my lifetime.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on National Defense
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq?]This may surprise a lot of people as well because people have been making assumptions and putting words in Gov. Romney’s mouth for years on this issue, but I cannot find any proof of Gov. Romney even advocating us going to war with Iraq. However, once the wars had started, Governor Romney strongly supported finishing the job. Gov. Romney will not allow the sacrifice of so many Americans go to waste.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support our actions in Libya?]In a nationally-televised speech on March 28, President Obama defined the American military mission in Libya as humanitarian: We would enforce a no-fly zone to prevent Libyan forces from bombing civilians. I support that specific, limited mission. Last week, the president wrote in an op-ed with his British and French counterparts that “to succeed, Qaddafi must go and go for good.”
It is apparent that our military is engaged in much more than enforcing a no-fly zone. What we are watching in real time is another example of mission creep and mission muddle. In an op-ed in today’s Boston Herald, former U.N. ambassador John Bolton rightly notes that Obama has set himself up for “massive strategic failure” by demanding Qaddafi’s ouster “while restricting military force to the limited objective of protecting civilians.” Military action cannot be under-deliberated and ad hoc. The president owes it to the American people and Congress to immediately explain his new Libya mission and its strategic rationale.[/DDET]
[DDET What does Mitt Romney feel is the US’s role in the world?]We are the world’s lone superpower and have been since the fall of the Soviet Union, but countries like China, India, and Russia once again are growing in power and influence while the United States is losing power and influence. Unless we have a major course correction, we are on track to be eclipsed by those nations.[/DDET]
[DDET How does Mitt Romney feel about the United Nations?]The United Nations is a failure and read why Mitt think so here.[/DDET]
[DDET Would Mitt Romney shrink or expand the size of our military?]Gov. Romney would like to add more troops to our force and have spending around 4% of GDP for the military. Gov. Romney would like to increase our naval fleet a bit, but also recognizes waste needs to be trimmed out of military spending like it does from virtually every government program.[/DDET]
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s view on the NEW Start Treaty?]Gov. Romney virtually stood alone in publicly rejecting the New Start Treaty and has taken a lot of flack for his bold stance. After the ratification, Gov. Romney has repeatedly called it President Obama’s worst foreign policy mistake.[/DDET]
[DDET What does Mitt Romney think about Iran and North Korea?]Both regimes are enemies of the United States. Gov. Romney has chastised President Obama on numerous occasions for not even publicly supporting the opposition in Iran after Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stole his election in 2009.[/DDET]
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s view on aggressive interrogation tactics?]Mitt has repeatedly said it is inappropriate for a candidate for the Presidency of the United States to publicly say what constitutes as torture and what doesn’t because it telegraphs to our enemies what they can prepare for should our forces capture them on the battlefield. It would just be guessing for any of us to say what Mitt feels about different techniques, but Mitt has been very clear that he does not support torture. He wisely just won’t tell our enemies which techniques are permissible and which ones aren’t.[/DDET]
[DDET Would Mitt Romney close Guantanamo Bay?]No, Mitt was recognized as the strongest supporter of keeping Guantanamo Bay’s detention facility open during the 2008 debates.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney on Second Amendment – Gun Rights
[DDET What is Mitt Romney’s stance on the second amendment?]“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.” — 1/24/08 at Boca Raton, FL debate[/DDET]
[DDET Is Mitt Romney a member of the NRA?]Yes and he has been for years. Watch and/or read some of his speeches to the NRA here.[/DDET]
[DDET Does Mitt Romney support the Brady Bill?]Mitt Romney specifically touches on the Brady Bill here.[/DDET]
[DDET Did Mitt Romney sign an assault weapons ban as Governor?]We touch on this with Gov. Romney’s own words here.[/DDET]
Mitt Romney and Mormonism (LDS Church)
[DDET Can a Christian vote for a Mormon?]This is a question that each Christian must determine for themselves. Ross Abraham, one of the contributors here at MRC spent 6 months in the year 2007 struggling with that very question and he explained some of his experience at http://mittromneycentral.com/about-mrc/team-mrc/rebel-ross/[/DDET]
[DDET Do Mormons believe in Jesus?]
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believes that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world and the Son of God.
Jesus Christ is our Redeemer, and he was sent down by God to redeem us from our sins by dying on the cross. Then over a period of three days he would be resurrected, which saved us from physical death because he had overcome it. Now because of His miraculous conquor of death, we all will be given the gift of resurrection. Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God the Father, in the flesh. He was the Creator, He is our Savior, and He will be our Judge.
Under the direction of our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ created the earth. Through His suffering in the Garden of Gethsemane and by giving His life on the cross that is, by performing the Atonement—Jesus Christ saves us from our sins as we follow Him. The LDS believe that the only way to heaven is though God’s son Jesus Christ by having a personally relationship with him as your savior through prayer. Even before God created the world, He prepared a plan that allows us to learn and grow during this life. Jesus Christ is the center of this plan. Christ’s mission was not only to teach us about God the Father and how we should live, but also to make a way for us to be forgiven after we sin. Sin is more than just making a mistake. When we sin we disobey God’s commandments or fail to act correctly despite our knowledge of the truth (James 4:17).
Our Faith in Jesus Christ will lead us to do good works. The Holy Bible teaches, “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:20). This does not mean that we can be saved by good works, for no amount of good works can cleanse our souls of even a trace of sin without the power of Christ’s sacrifice. But those who have genuine faith in Christ will want to follow Him and do the kinds of works He did such as; helping the poor and needy, caring for the sick, visiting the lonely, and showing good will and love to all people. Faith in Jesus Christ is a firm conviction that He is who He says He is and that He will help us when we seek Him. Faith in Christ means trusting in Him, remembering Him, and following His teachings. It is a conviction that He is the Son of God, “The way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6). As we follow His example and live according to His words, we will feel our faith growing until it becomes an active force in our lives, helping us repent of our sins and deal with our challenges. Faith in Jesus Christ isn’t a simple declaration of belief—it is a source of power we can renew every day by studying His words, praying, and by trying harder to follow His example.
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call his name JESUS; for he shall save his people from their sins.” MATTHEW 1:21

[DDET Do Mormons practice polygamy?]The LDS Church officially abandoned the practice of polygamy in 1890. Since the Second Manifesto in 1904, any member of the LDS church found practicing or even promoting polygamy is excommunicated. Some people who consider themselves Mormons still practice polygamy, but they do so without the blessing of the official Mormon church.[/DDET]
[DDET Will Mitt Romney take orders from LDS leaders if he were President?]No. Mitt explains very clearly in his famous “Faith in America” speech than Mitt will be beholden to no one as President. He specifically says his church will not tell him how to govern or be able to issue orders. The citizens of Massachusetts can attest to the fact that Mitt did not impose his religious beliefs on them as Governor either as even more proof.[/DDET]
[DDET How will Mitt Romney’s Mormonism affect his leadership decisions as President?]Mitt has developed a lot of his values as a person and leader from his Mormon faith, but he decided before ever running for political office that he would never impose those values on his constituents.

Mitt and Ann Romney were awarded the Becket Fund’s highest honor, the Canterbury Medal, for their contribution in expanding religious expression in the public square in 2008.[/DDET]

It was just like the kennel he curled up in at home.”
“Mitt and I love our dogs,” Ann Romney adds, noting that Seamus, an Irish setter, was the first of several beloved family dogs.
