Posted on 07/10/2016 11:38:01 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Donald Trump is formally vetting a retired general as a potential running mate, but the 33-year Army veteran's views on social issues are sure to draw an outcry from Republicans already wary about Trump's conservative credentials.
Retired Lt. Gen Michael T. Flynn, who most recently served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, is being vetted as a last-minute addition to Trump's pool of possible vice presidential picks, NBC News confirms.

I guess there's a lot of money to be made by pumping out daily stories on the latest speculation/wild-ass-guess as to who Trump might pick.
Aside from a seismic shift abortion is a done deal in the States. There is no reason for a Republican to whine about needing it unless they wanted to damage the party.
I saw it. It’s unfortunate IMHO that he’s going out and doing interviews as he’s being vetted. To me, he’s an ideal pick for Trump’s VP and it was obvious in the interview that he hasn’t thought about and doesn’t give a crap about these kinds of litmus test social issues. He’s interested in protecting America against what he’s experienced first hand for many years and from a variety of angles as an EXISTENTIAL THREAT to our way of life. I bet he’s persuadable on abortion, but it just hasn’t been on his radar. But yes, he was clearly pro-choice in this interview.
um...he said this today on ABC’s “THIS Week”.
This guy is an admitted lifetime RAT and he hasn’t said if he’s changed his registration.
He did say in an interview that he believes a woman should have the right to choose.
The “Right To Kill Your Own Offspring” isn’t something I can support either. Let’s hope this isn’t true.
I would hope that this information, if true, would be a deal breaker for Trump.
Perot’s Admiral Stockdale was also a vigorous pro-abort type.
Santorum for VP! Boycott Flynn at the convention.
Please do stay home this fall.
Abortion is the only big issue facing this country, there are no others, and you shouldn’t allow yourself to be told differently.
Was a time it would have been a deal breaker here on FR.
If trump puts another liberal on the ticket I’m staying home There is only so much that can be swallowed. And no that doesn’t mean I want Hilary so save your invective
There are all sorts of lies, your post is illustrative of one way.
(Yea, I guess Hillary would be better...dont want to compromise principle do we.)
I don’t think that it was was being said at all. I think there is real concern on this issue as it goes against the belief of the right. Which is what Trump is running his ticket on. To pull in a more liberal VP would not be a conservative move. Something fishy here.
As far as pulling for Hillary... I do not believe for a second that is what the post you are answering was about at all....
we’re already third world bub. a kakistocracy all the way. no reason for me to vote to continue the same.
given a chance to vote against that same, I’ll do it.
There’s never been a time where such a statement would have been a deal breaker.
For some certainly, but others have always thought that other issues are a bigger threat to our nation.
Absolutely correct. He can work on those things and not be VP.
Per the owner believe FR has been Pro-life from Day One.
