Calling bullshit on Romney’s latest abortion claim

Mitt Romney thinks American women are dumb.  Either that or he hopes we aren’t paying attention. At an editorial board meeting with the Des Moines Register the newly “etch-a-sketched” version of Mitt Romney was asked about the critical issue of choice and what his administration will do if he’s elected.
