    Oh Lordy --- Seriously? Did you go to the RealLifeDad School of Thread Titles? icon_eek.gif How about trimming it down and keeping the bulk of the words in the body of the post -- sheeeesh!

    First off, Condi Rice was, as she always is, fair, articulate, enormously knowledgable, and gracious. She threw no one under the bus, she just told it like it is from her perspective which, in my opinion, her being a former Sec of State, is as good as you can ask for. In case you haven't noticed, Mitt Romney is not pushing the Libya/Benghazi-gate thing on the campaign train either, in fact, he didn't even bring it up in the debate (a wise move). What I appreciated most in this Rice interview is her making the point that she personally doesn't agree with all the social issue stances in the GOP platform. However, she went further to make the valid (and fair) point that Romney/Ryan will respect those who disagree with their stance on issues, and subtly even hinted that they would approach their administration with more of an open mind than people probably expect them to. Here's the interview...Draw your own conclusions from watching it, not the always biased slant ThinkProgress.com almost always gives.

    So when Mitt Romeny says he is going to put the breaks on gay-rights progression...he's just, lying?

    Did he say that? He is against gay marriage, not gay living. Mr. Obama was against it too before he was for it. Minds can be changed. Relax. The end of the Obama era is near, not the end of gay life as we know it.

    Gay living? Do you mean physically alive or livelihood? Equality is every sense of livelihood for most gays and is beyond just gay marriage.
