    "Mitt Romney is not Rick Santorum, and Paul Ryan is not Michele Bachmann. Otherwise, our decision would have been different," the group said.

    This is sick. Romney will do/say anything to get power but has no core convictions and has made few specific promises other than stupid and/or disgusting ones. His economics is a joke to anyone who understands such things, his social policy close to evil, and he has proven that he will align with the ultra right when he needs their votes. So listen up, gay Republicans, once he has your general election vote, who's vote will he be pandering for for the four years? The ultra right in Congress. He won't need you again for four years. And you've already proven you can forget what he said yesterday if today he dissembles. About the only thing he's been consistent on is his willingness to harm gays whenever possible.

    And one more thing, you so-called moderates are the reason the ultra right is winning control of the GOP. If you'd occasionally stand up with the Democrats on social issues or economic issues instead of this scorched earth policy of your party, the right wing would be forced to compromise. Or are you afraid of losing your non-existent power? You've sold your soul. And they will eat you alive and you will deserve it.

    In another thread, someone said I was acting like a child because I refuse to be friends with someone who would vote this way. Oh well, guess I'll just remain childish.

    LCR expressed their position well. And it makes sense.

    I don't think even straight Republicans want to back Romney. Thing is, he's the best thing they've got...(From their perspective. Not mine.)

    To Republicans, it's not about that Romney is so great. It's that they think Obama is so bad that they'll take pretty much anyone with an R next to their name.
