Mitt Romney's Record On Affirmative Action In Massachusetts He is such a lying sneak. And, he has no intention of protecting ANY civil rights. But then, that's why the right loves him. He'll take his marching orders from Norquist and Rove and, if they have their way, our Democratic Republic will be a distant memory. The right is always in favor of the old days when we had affirmative action to favor white men. Betcha the rw's here will pile on to rant and rave about how they want THAT affirmative action back. Or maybe they'll just attack the messenger because they know they're wrong.
