SHOCKER: Romney comes out against `Blunt-Rubio� to turn back HHS mandate on contraception.

This is exactly why Mitt Romney makes a horrible candidate for the GOP.  He�s not a conservative and he�s sold out Senate Republicans that want to turn back Obmama�s religious bigotry. 
The Plum Line reports Jim Heath, a reporter for ONN-TV in Ohio, just Tweeted a remarkable piece of news: Mitt Romney told him he does not support the Blunt amendment, which would empower employers and insurers to deny health coverage they find morally objectionable.
 just got off the phone with Heath, and he graciously played me the audio. Heath asks Romney if he�s for the �Blunt-Rubio� amendment, and defines it. Romney replies:
�I�m not for the bill. But, look, the idea of presidential candidates getting into questions about contraception within a relationship between a man and a woman, husband and wife, I�m not going there.�
That�s pretty remarkable. If Romney knew what he was saying, the Senate GOP caucus, which is set to vote on this amendment tomorrow, may feel as if Romney has pulled the rug out from underneath them. And this has become an important issue for conservatives. So it�ll be interesting to see how the base reacts to this, particularly since the GOP primary is anything but over and Rick Santorum � who�s perceived as a more reliable social conservative � is likely to use this to attack Romney, who will be under continued pressure to connect with social and religious conservatives.

It didn�t take long for Romney to once again show his true colors.

Obama�s secretary of Energy Stephen Chu admits he wants gas prices higher to wean Americans of oil

That�s right it�s a matter of policy for the Obama regime for gas prices to be high so we can kick are gas cars to curb and buys Chevy Volts.
Honestly, does Obama deserve to be re-elected?

Heritage reports with the national average of gas prices hitting $3.65 a gallon, nearing $6 in some parts of the country, and poised to head even higher, America�s families are wondering when the bleeding at the pump will stop. But for Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu, those steep prices aren�t even a concern. In fact, he says his goal is not to get the price of gasoline to go down.

Chu delivered those stunning remarks in testimony before Congress yesterday. When Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) asked Chu whether it�s his �overall goal to get our price� of gasoline lower, Chu said, �No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy.�
