Romney Moves to Reframe Debate on Abortion, Autos

KETTERING, Ohio (AP) -- Republican Mitt Romney seems determined to soften his emphasis on abortion and ignore facts critical to the auto industry as he seeks support from key voting groups in the waning days of a close presidential race. That's the message in ads, his own remarks and most recently the words of a top supporter.
Even some Republicans as well as Chrysler itself say Romney's campaign went too far with recent TV and radio ads that claim the No. 3 automaker is adding jobs in China at the expense of workers in Ohio. Romney's approach to abortion is more a matter of a change in tone, though one campaign surrogate recently assured an audience that the Supreme Court's 1973 opinion legalizing abortion is unlikely to be overturned if Romney wins.

    Here we go, changing his stance to the public to get the votes to win. Even though it's not his real stance. Trying to make himself more of a moderate to get the independent votes. Isn't that flip-flopping? Sounds to me like a lie to me all for votes to win.
