      Good for Barack. His biographers will be happy that he left office on a high note.

      @BJ McFrisky: Heard your friend won’t be leaving hospital. Shame that, was funny though, and deserved.

      While this poll number makes me happy, the idea that you can “win” a debate is ridiculous.

      @BJ McFrisky:

      Ahhhh, the guy who can never state anything factual, just make vague comments. If you can’t defend your opinion perhaps you should rethink them.

      I would be curious to hear your thoughts on Romney going before Congress to advocate for an anti-gay amendment to the U.S. constitution.

      Oh but thats right, you Log Cabiners never want to talk about things like that do you?

      @Cam: Me, a Log Cabiner? Don’t make me laugh. Shows how little attention you’ve been paying. And really? You think Romney wants an anti-gay amendment to the constitution? What paranoid Lefty filled your head with such BS? Tell you what: You show me where Romney made that specific statement, and I’ll vote for Obama. Swear to God I will. But if you cannot provide it, then we have proof that you’re a wacky wearer of tinfoil hats who spouts lies to boost favor for a poltical candidate.

      @BJ McFrisky: I think perhaps Cam is referencing this statement made by Romney during a Faith and Freedom Coalition conference call: “I would also propose and promote once again an amendment to the constitution to define marriage as a relationship between a man and a woman.” This can be heard here on YouTube: Romney: Obama Leading “Assaults” on Life, Religion, Marriage. (Source: RightWingWatch.org article)

      In an interview with the Boston Herald he “expressed support for a constitutional amendment that could create a complex three-tier system of marriage — maintaining marriage rights for straight couples, allowing gays who have already married to remain married, but barring future same-sex marriages.” (Source: BostonHerald.com)

      Republican Senator Orrin Hatch (Utah) reacted to this by saying he “prefers that the matter be left up to states to decide, and that individual states have the right to support gay marriage if they so choose”. (Source: HuffingtonPost.com)

      @BJ McFrisky: http://www.buzzfeed.com/chrisgeidner/romney-campaign-backs-off-federal-marraige-amendme
      “Governor Romney supports a federal marriage amendment to the Constitution that defines marriage as an institution between a man and a woman.”
      http://www.mittromney.com/issues/values
      “…he will also champion a Federal Marriage Amendment to the Constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.”

      @BJ McFrisky: He signed NOM’s Pledge (see http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2012/04/11/462104/romney-nom-endorsement/)

      His campaign clarified this past Saturday that he supports a marriage amendment. “BUCHANAN: Governor Romney supports a federal marriage amendment to the Constitution that defines marriage as an institution between a man and a woman.”

      @Freddie27:
      @Aidan8:
      Nice try, marriage enthusiasts, but what I asked for was proof that he wants to add an ANTI-GAY amendment to the Constitution, as Cam stated, not whether or not he’s pro-gay marriage. As usual, in an attempt to prove how noble you are and how ignoble Romney is, you end up with egg on your face by making it all about the marriage thing (plus, you apparently forgot that one of Romney’s key campaign people was openly gay Richard Grennel). Again: Nice try, but epic fail. No one wants an anti-gay amendment to the constitution. Show me that, and I’ll cross over to the dark side with the rest of you.
