Yesterday, a sound bite of Mitt Romney saying "Planned Parenthood, we're going to get rid of that," hit the web, and people haven't stopped talking about it because, apparently, this is shocking news. So shocking, in fact, that DNC's rapid response team decided to build a scary-music web ad around it…
Speaking a big proponent of Planned Parenthood, I do feel the need to come to Romney's defense on this one. In this political climate, a candidate simply cannot win a Republican presidential nomination without promising to close down Planned Parenthood.
And Mitt Romney really wants to be president.
You can see the pickle he's in.
