Mr. Etch-a-Sketch strikes again:  Mitt Romney told the Des Moines Register that he has no plans to push legislation limiting abortion, which is an abrupt change from a previous statement he made saying he would appoint Supreme Court justices who would overturn Roe v. Wade.

Romney said, “There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda.”

His campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul walked it back real fast, telling the National Review that Mitt Romney “would of course support legislation aimed at providing greater protections for life.”

Interesting take from Mark Halperin: “If the Obama campaign has cracked the code on how to make Mitt Romney pay a political price for his late rush to the center on tone and emphasis, we haven’t seen them execute their full plan yet. That might be the central tactical question in the presidential contest right now.”

Separately:

AP: The presidential battleground map “is as compact as it’s been in decades, with just nine states seeing the bulk of candidate visits, campaign ads and get-out-the-vote efforts in the hunt for the 270 Electoral College votes needed for victory. That means just a fraction of Americans will determine the outcome of the race for the White House.”

    Janet just to change the subject. Why is the news media as well as bloggers not questioning the President on why they are so quiet on what had occured at the embassy in Benghazi, Libya. I can’t believe that Clinton is still campaigning for Obama, after the President threw Hillary under the bus, by having her make comments that they knew were completely false.
