Daily Scoop: Mitt’s flip-flopping knows no bounds

In Mitt Romney’s attempts to appeal to swing voters he displays his unending strategy to say anything to win the presidency.

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio—With less than a month to go before Election Day, Mitt Romney faces a choice between whipping up the support of his conservative base or appealing to swing voters who could be persuaded to back his bid for the presidency.

In recent days, Romney has chosen to focus on the latter, pushing a more centrist message on the campaign trail. His latest turn came Tuesday when he told the editorial board of the Des Moines Register that he has no plans to push for legislation limiting abortion.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” Romney told the Register.

Afterward, Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul appeared to temper Romney’s comment, telling National Review that Romney would “of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life.

Mitt Romney is proudly pro-life, and he will be a pro-life president,” Saul said in an email to Yahoo News.

In a statement to reporters, Obama campaign spokeswoman Lis Smith called Romney’s statement “deceptive.”

“It’s troubling that Mitt Romney is so willing to play politics with such important issues,” Smith said. “But we know the truth about where he stands on a woman’s right to choose. Women simply can’t trust him.”
