DemocracyNow.org - Mitt Romney's embrace of the Republican Party's call for a federal ban on abortion stands in stark contrast to his record as Massachusetts governor, one of his many shifting stances over the years in his bid for the party's nomination. Romney's wife, Ann Romney -- the featured speaker at the Republican National Convention Tuesday night -- has also shifted her public views. We discuss the move from "moderation" to extremism with someone who knew Ann and Mitt Romney well: former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson. Mitt Romney and Anderson worked together on the 2002 Olympics and later endorsed each other for their respective state bids. Anderson is now running for U.S. president on the Justice Party ticket. We're also joined by Megan Carpentier, executive editor of the news site The Raw Story.
