    He's just pandering to the extreme religious right in the way that Barack Obama is pandering to the African American community.

    This is an interesting read!

    Secretly, I'm sure Romney and Obama don't care that much about it.

    I agree that Romney will be far friendlier to the gay community than many would like to believe. He won't campaign that way, but I think he would govern that way

    SHOCK. Does the religious right know Romney secretly loves fags? Would they approve of this sinful behaviour. What would God say?

    Agree completely. I wouldn't even be surprised if, after he's in office, would support something for civil unions if it were to come up. I mean, Massachusetts already has full-blown marriage for crying out loud.

    He's got to get through the primaries first and of course win in the general and then? I still think it will be a repub who does it.

    I hope you guys are right, although you're guessing and as I pointed out in another topic, The Republican Party is counting on being able to provide a Prez that carries his pre-election promises into actuality once elected. (Flip-flop Obama, and especially do-nothing after elected, are the contentions being presented to sway voters, right?) Otherwise there would be no need to be signing pledges, which are legal documents. How much weight they carry if used in litigation is another matter entirely.

    Probably zero. It's time has cum so if Romney performs well on economic issues and the country is in full recovery, folks will be at each others’ throats a lot less and instead down each others throats.

    Dick Cheney will have his back!

    ^^^^ Exactly ^^^^ and I suspect Jon Huntsman would play a significant role in any Romney administration -- Possibly Secretary of State -- and he would have his back as well. I'd bet who ever he picks as a V.P. would as well. It is by no means unimaginable that a Republican administration could be the one that brings either marriage equality or at least a solid "civil union" type thing that has all the same rights and privileges of marriage without actually changing the definition of marriage. I do not see this as keeping gays as 2nd class citizens, but rather making a respectful compromise

    But then, Curiousjock, you don't care about marriage anyways.

    Quite frankly, we feel that Mock for example should have every right to marry his man, have a delightfully hyphenated last name and pass that name on to their kids. It works in stodgy old Canada, no matter what political party is in charge, and it should be a given in a country as colourful and vibrant as the US.

    This thread raises a very legitimate point.

    Romney IS a two-faced lying flip-flipper who will say anything to try to get his lame ass elected.
    Sadly for him though - voters just HATE flip-flippers!

    It's not that I don't care...Of course I care...I would love to see my friends and fellow gay brothers and sisters be able to marry if/when/where they would like. That being said, for me personally, it is not a priority issue that guides my voting. I would never EVER, however, vote for anyone like a Rick Santorum or Michelle Bachman or Rick Perry who I feel is genuinely homophobic and bigoted.

    Actually, lucky for Romney, the voters are far more forgiving and not nearly as stupid as many in the media take them for. Romney is a fine man, and I believe he would be a fine President --- one that Americans could be truly proud of, and who will represent the USA with strength and intelligence across the world.

    Once a two-faced lying flip-flipper - always a two-faced lying flip-flipper.

    And considering the horrendous judgement you and your fellow Repub voters have shown in picking presidents for the last 50+ years, no one should trust the judgement of a partisan Repub like yourself.

    Every president you Repubs have elected for the last 50+ years has had a recession and massive job losses hit on his watch - and not one of them balanced a budget even once while in office!

    To be clear - I was referring to Romney when I used the term "two-faced lying flip-flipper" - not to curiousjock.
    And I stand by that assessment of Romney.

    So that's why you had to throw this one ^^^^^ in there?

    That's a mighty insult to tell someone that no one can trust his judgment. No one's judgments are infallible all the time.

    Question: Is a "flip-flipper" half as bad as a "flip-flopper" or twice as bad? icon_rolleyes.gif Cuz a flip-flipper sounds like a flipper that can't flop

    Good catch. Too bad I'm in the gym using the Droid and didn't see that. I thinks it's just his rage clouding his vision again.
