When jockeying for the Republican presidential nomination and positioning, little things like supporting the opposition's platform can hurt you. Mitt Romney's past statements and support for pro-choice advocacy are big obstacles for the base and he's running from them as fast as he can. Apparently, selective amnesia is a more acceptable excuse than to stand up against government interference in the personal lives of citizens. When FOXNews Sunday's Chris Wallace asks Ann Romney about her financial support for pro-choice groups in the past, her response is "how can anyone expect you to remember every check you've written?".

You know, a check for $100, written in 1993, I believe is when the check was... I don't even remember writing the check. I know today, I wouldn't write the check. I mean, how do you remember all the checks you've written, you know, how many years ago was that?

Senility or fiscal irresponsibility? We report, you decide. ;)
