Last week, Mitt Romney was in trouble because he lied about George Bush’s record on abortion. Then this week, the Boston Globe points out that Romney’s campaign lost control of a planning presentation. I think that Matt Lewis’s write up on this will be the definitive one.

The closing sentence of the Globe’s article is:

… the plan lists two ways Romney can set himself apart from Bush. The first says, simply, "Intelligence."

So Romney is telling conservatives that he is as pro-life as Bush (and Brownback?) and smarter than Bush. Not a winning message for Romney.

Actually, it is you who are lying, as Kate O’Beirne at the National Review points out:

Turns out W did change his position, and Romney simply didn’t want to press the point and embarass the President, whose support he undoubtedly hopes to enjoy later when he’s the nominee.
