Romney's Health Speech Venue: Another Misstep?
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich got off to a not-so-great start yesterday with some website problems just as he announced to 1.3 million people on Twitter that he was running for president. Mitt Romney seems to have bungled a few of the details of his campaign's first few weeks too.
As National Review, Romney is giving a major health care speech today at the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center:
Two interesting tidbits about the Center: it’s affiliated with a university that provides abortions Planned Parenthood cannot do and it helped fund new embryonic stem cell lines — which requires the destruction of human embryos.
Since Romney is both pro-life and opposes embryonic stem cell research - as is a large proportion of the Republican primary electorate - this presents a bit of a problem.
This comes on the heels of two other missteps that have come with the launching of Romney's campaign: the announcement of his presidential exploratory committee on the fifthof Romneycare, and the adoption of a campaign slogan – “Believe in America” - that was the slogan used by John Kerry's cross-country tour in 2004.
