Abstract (Document Summary)
In a campaign swing through Lawrence and Lowell, Republican senatorial hopeful Mitt [Romney] yesterday stepped up his criticism of US Sen. Edward M. Kennedy's role in the congressional crime bill, charging Kennedy had worked behind closed doors to weaken a tough bill.
Romney said the best way the federal government can help communities like Lowell and Lawrence fight crime is by providing money for police and prisons. But only $15.3 billion of the $33 billion conference committee bill went for those purposes, Romney said.
Romney said the Congress should reassemble a bill that would include the assault weapons ban, the four provisions he blamed Kennedy for killing in conference, the $15.3 billion in funding for police officers, prisons and boot camps, an expanded death penalty, a "three-strikes-and-you're-out law," and $1.8 billion to fight violence against women.

Jesus said "sell your garment and buy a sword (weapon)." The Mormons say "build up your storehouse and prepare for the endtimes." I would remind Mr, Romney that if Jesus was here today he would tell us to prepare by buying a weapon to protect your family from that which is about to happen.
If you have the time, would you explain Romney being more liberal than Obama? Liberals making donations make them to Obama, Conservatives make theirs to Romney. Are they confused?
Romney is actually more liberal than our wonderful president Obama, which is why Romney has already lost the 2016 election.
