    Romney issued 189 Gay marriage licenses during his governorship:

    http://www.romneyexposed.com/2011/10/04/romney-personally-issued-marriage-licenses-to-189-same-sex-couples/

    "Matt Staver, Dean of Liberty Law School, said that Romney “went out and ordered to licenses to be changed, and if fact, that’s not his duty. His duty was to abide by the legislature….the governor actually participated, in my opinion, in advancing same-sex marriage.”

    Someone who really believes in his heart that gay people don't deserve marriage equality would never be caught doing something like this. But yes, keep trying to convince everyone that: ROMNEY IS THE MOST ANTI-GAY GOP CANDIDATE EVAARRRR

    MITT himself tried to convince the Far Right of this during his long and very revealing primary season.


    Twinkles, for those of us who must remain sober during daylight hours, it's hard to share your cheery image of a man who has sided with every anti-gay position the Far Right brings him.

    The point is that this one-sided reporting is just looking desperate rather than studious.

    Every GOP president has "campaigned" among the far religious right just like every democratic candidate campaigns with the far left wedge issue voters. It's politics darling, politics.

    If their campaign was focused on social issues Ann Romney would have mentioned something to that effect in the ABC interview, instead she said that all of these hot button social issues are irrelevant in light of the economy and that their campaign's FOCUS is on the economy and jobs -- they have enumerated that hundreds of times -- but windbags keep talking about how Romney is ready to make anti-gay legislation his priority! It's bullshit and you all know it. They know social issues is a losing position and that's why they are distancing themselves when not among religious crowds.

    Wow, you're such an Uncle Tom, the way you defend gay hate. So, it's okay to preach that gays are evil, as long as you're in a religious crowd?

    You're really sick in the head if you believe that.

    I never said that, but it's not like Obama would be touting his support of gay marriage in a black church either. People try to tell particular constituencies what they want to hear.

    You're trying way to hard to just be blissfully unaware of the points I'm making.

    We all know that all of the fear-mongering about Romney going after gay people as soon as he gets in office is completely opposite from Romney's track record.

    He doesn't have a legit track record. When he was governor, democrats ran his state, and he capitulated to them. Who's to say what he would do as POTUS?

    Obama's position on gay rights is crystal clear. There isn't a "black church" that doesn't know how exactly he feels about the issue, and he does not send mixed messages ever. He's stood up for gay rights for the last four years like no president in history. Gays who turn their backs on him now are betraying their own fight for equality.

    Sorry if I can't sugar coat the word betrayal for you, darling.

    The most egregious betrayal, against all American citizens (not just our gay community), is letting our country become another Greece.

    Two totally different countries. Greece does not even have its own currency. And if Romney spends money and cuts taxes the way he says he will...we will have even more debt.

    I'm almost convinced that the Secret Service will assassinate Romney if he gets elected, so it's hard for me to be concerned about the bullshit he pulls anymore.

    Are you on drugs? Alcohol? Or just plain crazy? That was then...this is now. You SHOULD be concerned that he went from pro-gay to anti-gay and from pro-choice to pro-life. But you're not. You're like a BuyBull Thumper....you just pick and choose which parts to believe and conveniently ignore the rest. Amazing....

    Our problems are not the same as Greece. And the current crop of Republicans are on track to turn us into Iran or Saudi Arabia. Which is worse?

    We should be striving to be like Norway, Germany, or Switzerland, but according to Republicans those are evil liberal socialist bastions created by Satan, so we can't have that.

    There's a reason why those on the right are considered the American Taliban. The similarities in attitudes between them are all too apparent.
