Anti-abortionists will re-elect Obama and give him the power to turn Supreme Court hard left
If you want proof that social issues Republicans aren't conservatives, pay attention to how they are putting GOP presidential candidates into a corner and how they are all but re-electing President Obama.
Anti-abortionists are guaranteeing that Obama will be re-elected and will appoint several liberal, pro-choice justices to
the U.S. Supreme Court and federal appellate and federal district courts. He'll also continue to stack federal agencies with pro-choice appointees who will drive the anti-abortion and anti-gay marriage folks crazy.
Here's the evidence. The Susan B. Anthony anti-abortionists have gotten Michele Bachmann, Tim Pawlenty, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul and Rick Santorum to sign it's anti-abortion pledge.
That makes them virtually unelectable in 2012. Ask Colorado's Ken Buck who lost his U.S. Senate race in 2010 because he opposes abortions.
Mitt Romney is running as an anti-abortionist, but he has refused to sign the anti-abortion pledge. If he sticks to his guns, he'll probably be only a little more electable than the rest of the field. But he has other problems. He has poor political instincts and skills. He supports mandates that Americans buy health insurance, ethanol, expensive electric power and many of the EPA's job-killing environmental regulations.
Indeed, all of the Republican candidates say they are for less government spending and lower taxes. But just as Romney supports tax credits and government subsidies for corn ethanol, the other candidates support government subsidies and tax credits for having kids and buying houses. The anti-spending GOP candidates are for subsidizing the richest and smartest Medicare beneficiaries who want to continue government subsidies for Medicare Advantage.
They can't have it both ways. They can't claim to be Small Government Republicans when they're Big Government Republicans on social issues and many aspects of federal spending.
Democrats will hammer them on wanting to make women who have been raped have their rapists' babies and either live with them or put them up for adoption. The Left will hammer Republicans on Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and all of the issues that the American "Moocher Nation" treasures.
This will make it easy for Obama and Obama Democrats to win a lot of elections in 2012.
President George W. Bush's legacy is Obama. You can't do worse than that. But the GOP presidential candidates are doing all they can to give Obama a second term.
