Mitt Romney: Is it a presidents job to solve moral questions?
Question: Is it the president’s job to solve moral questions?
Mitt Romney: Well everything you do that relates to the law and to the practices of a country has a moral component. And if . . . By that I mean a sense of what’s right and what’s wrong. Our society flows from Judeo-Christian values that say that there is a Creator. We’re a family of humankind. We care about the . . . the well-being of people in our own nation, in our families, and also in families around the world. And we also recognize that liberty and freedom is a gift of a Creator; not the invention of a state, but the gift of a Creator. And these views are revolutionary. And . . . and as a result of these views, I believe that our policy must, from time to time, take stock of where we are and make sure that we’re . . . we’re actually in the right; that we’re flowing from the kind of moral values that you’d expect of a moral nation like America.
