First we have the Romney campaign rejecting Ryan's budget:
In his solo first interview since tapping Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney on Wednesday attempted to create daylight between his plan for Medicare and his running mate's controversial budget proposal, telling CBS News that Ryan had joined his campaign - not vice versa.
"Congressman Ryan has joined my campaign, and his campaign is my campaign now," the presumptive Republican presidential candidate told "CBS This Morning." "We're on exactly the same page."
Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan's strong views on abortion took a back seat to his new boss's view in a Romney-Ryan campaign response to a Missouri Senate candidate's controversial remarks about rape and abortion.
The statement on behalf of Ryan and presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney said the pair would "not oppose abortion in instances of rape."
Rep. Todd Akin suggested to St. Louis station KTVI on Sunday that if a "legitimate rape" occurs, "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." Even if a pregnancy did result, Akin said, "The punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child." He later said he has empathy for rape victims and acknowledged that rapes can cause pregnancy.
"Gov. Romney and Congressman Ryan disagree with Mr. Akin's statement, and a Romney-Ryan administration would not oppose abortion in instances of rape," the campaign said in a brief statement released on Sunday evening by Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul.
Pro-life and pro-family groups who are currently supporting Romney need to understand that Romney's conservative rhetoric is not real. Look at what they are doing to their poster boy for the conservative base...converting him into a fellow pro-abortion RINO.
