Mitt Romney Defends Conservative Views After 1994 Tape Surfaces

After a tape of a 1994 debate with Ted Kennedy surfaced on YouTube, Mitt Romney felt the need to respond to his then-support of abortion rights and gay rights with a call to the Instapundit Glenn and Helen Show saying “I was wrong on some issues back then…If you want to know where I stand by the way, you don’t just have to listen to my words, you can go to look at my record as governor…Frankly, in the bluest of states, facing the most liberal media in the country, I’ve led the fight to preserve traditional marriage. I’ve taken every legal step I could conceive of, to prevent same-sex marriage.”

Will Romney be able to convince his Christian conservative base that he’s really behind their bigoted, anti-gay, pro-life agenda?

Will the real Mitt Romney please stand up go away?
