    As if there were any question as to what kind of President Mitt Romney would be.

    The GOP’s new darling, Senator Marco Rubio of Florida – a prominent Romney surrogate – is doing robocalls against gay marriage in various swing states where gay marriage isn’t even on the ballot. In other words, Rubio is gay-bashing to help get out the pro-Romney vote.

    As if there were any question as to how hateful and bigoted the Republican party remains to this day. Yet again trotting out gay bashing, at the last minute, to whip up the party faithful into a frenzy.

    Mitt Romney, and the GOP generally, need to decide who they want to be when they grow up.

    Are we electing the Romney who said he was more pro-gay than Ted Kennedy, or the Romney who says straight parents are better than gay ones? Is he the Romney who secretly promised the gay Republicans he’d move forward on ENDA?

    Every day brings a new flip-flop, a new position, a new lie from the Romney campaign on just who Uncle Mittens is going to play once he gets into the White House.

    And now we have the GOP’s new flavor-of-the-month using gay-bashing to get out the Republican vote.

    What is this, 2004, where the GOP is trotting out the gay-bashing card to energize the intolerant bigots and far-right extremists who control the party?

    From Chris Johnson at Blade:

    Rising Republican star Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is speaking out against same-sex marriage in robocalls being sent to voters in states deciding the issue at the ballot and presidential election swing states, according to an anti-gay group.

    The National Organization for Marriage, one of the major groups opposing marriage equality, included Rubio in a press release as among those making calls against same-sex marriage along with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Focus on the Family co-founder James Dobson.

    Experts have stated that Obamacare would actually be beneficial to seniors in Florida which is huge considering the number of seniors and retired. They're trying to appeal to the conservative views of the old folks basically saying "You may have to pay more with us but do you want the homos ruining the country after you're dead?"

    There is a well known quote: "Religion is the opium of the mass".... and Mormonism is the biggest opium of them all, doping its believers into ludicrous beliefs and deeds including gay bashing (i.e. mormon families were zealously called upon to give their savings to fight gay marriage proposition in California). I can't believe American is actually putting a person who was a mormon bishop as a viable option for the presidency job.... HELLO!
