How Romney Should Counter Gloria Allred’s “October Surprise”

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit thinks he’s figured out what ambulance chaser of feminist causes, Gloria Allred has in mind for an “October Surprise” on Romney…

On Friday Drudge teased that far left sensationalist Gloria Allred was about to drop a bomb on the Romney Campaign.

Allred has a reputation of dragging perceived female victims in front of the camera as props to bash Republican candidates. In October 2010 Allred dragged out illegal alien Nicki Diaz to attack heartless Meg Whitman. Minaj was upset Whitman didn’t buy her child a present and claimed Meg took advantage of her despite the fact she made a good wage. In November 2011 she dragged out Sharon Bialek who accused Herman Cain of sexual abuse.

The book Horror Stories: Mitt Romney’s Shameful Record with Mormon Women details Mitt Romney’s “psychological intimidation and bullying” during his role as a Bishop of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The report describes how Romney “tried to bully” Carrel Hilton Sheldon when she was suffering through a difficult pregnancy into not having an abortion.
AlterNet reported…

You can read the rest of the tale at Gateway Pundit.

Couple things…

#1. YAWN…As Ace says:

If he’s right, it’s neither surprise nor October, given that it has been reported on before, to yawns.

#2 The fact that a pro life Bishop of a pro-life church took a pro-life stance in the case of a difficult pregnancy doesn’t exactly pass the scandal test, I’m sorry. But it does give us an excuse to revisit Obama’s rabidly pro-abort/infanticide positions from his Chicago State Senate days right up to his ( abortion at taxpayer expense) White House days.

Nobody tried harder to bring Obama’s sickening opposition to the Born Alive Infant Protection Act to the voting public’s attention in 2008, than Jill Stanek:

Obama caught on tape arguing against giving medical attention to aborted babies

The IL General Assembly destroys audiotapes of its floor debates after transcripts have been written. That is why there is precious little audio, if any, of Barack Obama as state senator making any speeches.
But a pro-life sleuth has found a short audio clip on the Chicago Tribune website of Obama arguing on the IL Senate floor on April 4, 2002, against Senate Bill B1663, a companion bill to the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that would have required an abortionist to call a second physician to assess a baby aborted alive.

Okay, so the left wants to bring up a case where Romney counseled a woman to have the baby in difficult circumstances. Then we on the right need to counter with the story of how Obama, “all by his lonesome” fought tooth and nail against the rights of already born babies, because as he argued, doctors shouldn’t feel an “obligation” or “burden” to save those who have been condemned to death by abortion.
An abortion survivor told her story in an ad, last summer.

If Melissa Ohden had been born in President Obama’s Illinois, she might not be alive today. That’s the uncomfortable implication of a hard-hitting new ad released by the Susan B. Anthony List this week, featuring Ohden, who was born alive after a failed saline infusion abortion in 1977.In the ad Ohden draws attention to the fact that during his time as an Illinois state senator, Obama cast four votes against the Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA), a bill that mandated that doctors must try to save the life of babies born alive after failed abortions.

The bill was introduced after pro-life nurse Jill Stanek witnessed babies being born alive after failed abortions, then being brought to a room in the Illinois hospital where she worked and left to die.

“Is this the kind of leadership that will move us forward, leadership that would discard the least and the weakest among us?” Ohden asks in the ad.

This year’s HHS Mandate  has spurred protests all across the country:

Daniel R. Jenky, the Catholic Bishop of Peoria, Illinois, told a reported 500 men on Sunday that President Obama is following in the footsteps of Adolph Hitler and Josef Stalin, and urged them to wage war on the federal government to defend their religion. Saying, “Christ wins! Christ reigns! Christ commands!,” Bishop Jenky spoke vehemently about the Obama administration’s HHS mandate ensuring all women have access to contraception services.

“Hitler and Stalin, at their better moments, would just barely tolerate some churches remaining open, but would not tolerate any competition with the state in education, social services, and health care,” Bishop Jenky said. “In clear violation of our First Amendment rights, President Obama – with his radical, pro-abortion and extreme secularist agenda, now seems intent on following a similar path.”

Perhaps the Bishop is guilty of invoking Godwin’s Law, there.

But nobody would ever conflate Romney’s pro-life stance with Naziism or Communism.

Lila Rose urged Republicans to make Obama’s extremist views on abortion an issue in a piece at The Daily Caller, before the Republican Convention:

Republicans should be as bold on life from the podium and campaign stump as they are in their platform. After all, 50 percent of Americans now identify themselves as pro-life, according to Gallup, while an historic low of 41 percent of Americans identify as pro-choice.In another Gallup poll, 86 percent of Americans said abortion should be illegal in the third trimester. Meanwhile, an out-of-touch Democratic Party supports abortion on demand through all nine months of pregnancy.

Overwhelming majorities of Americans want common-sense restrictions on abortion and protections for the unborn. They support a ban on the brutal practice of partial-birth abortion, a ban on sex-selective abortion, and a ban on abortion after the unborn child can feel pain. Americans also oppose taxpayer funding of abortion.

These majorities cut across party lines, ethnicity, and religious denominations. Many Catholic, Hispanic, and Evangelical Democrats oppose abortion. Yet the Democratic Party supports a federal “Freedom of Choice Act” that would overturn state parental consent laws and other basic abortion regulations.

Many African Americans also oppose abortion, which is no wonder since an astounding 35% of the nation’s abortions are committed on black women. The statistics are worse in urban areas. According to the New York City Department of Health, 60 percent of black babies are killed by abortion in New York City. In Philadelphia, half of all babies aborted are black. Democrats often play the race card. Considering President Obama’s extremist support for abortion and the Democratic Party’s obsession over abortion funding, it’s time to call them out on it.

Go ahead, Gloria – make our day.
More speculation from the grapevine:
Some are claiming that as early as tomorrow a former maid who worked in the Romney Household will come out and say she had an “interaction” with the GOP candidate.
If so, it will be time to drop the “Bathhouse Barry” nuke.
They might want to rethink this….

In a speech on Friday in Virginia, President Barack Obama unveiled a new attack against his rival, accusing him of “Romnesia” (Romney + amnesia) about his past positions. The media treated the word as an innovation.

But the term has a prior–and specific–history.

According to the AlterNet article, which was published last Wednesday, “Romnesia” was the term created by Mormon feminists to describe his inability to recall specific details of his advice on abortion to female congregants. (Questions about Romney’s position on abortion, and his role as a church leader, first arose during his campaign for U.S. Senate in 1994.)

That is Obama’s possible original source–the same story Allred may be mining.

  2. My Moms Doctor tried to convince her not to have me because of the condition of her vericous veins. Now she is 87 with initial stages of demetia and alz,and I take care of her. I am the youngest of 5 but the only one available to care for her and this allows her to stay in her own home at least for now. She never told me this until recently. Obviously I am glad she did not take the doctors advice back in 1957!
