GOP contender Rep. Michele Bachmann released a web ad Tuesday attacking most of her Republican competition for switching positions on policies, or avowing ideas that are not in lock step with conservative ideology.
The ad titled “No Surprises 2012″ opens with the question: “Who is the consistent conservative?”
It then cobles video clips of her competition being less than “consistently conservative,” starting with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney saying, “I believe abortion should be safe and legal in this country” and “I will preserve and protect a woman’s right to choose.”
Since running for president, Romney has said he is anti-abortion rights.
The ad also includes Herman Cain, who insists he is “100 percent pro-life” but said in a recent CNN interview that abortion “ultimately gets down to a choice that that family or that mother has to make.”
Bachmann also assails Texas Rep. Ron Paul for saying Iran should be entitled to build a nuclear weapon and Texas Gov. Rick Perry for supporting in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.
