Mitt Romney Can’t Quit Marriage Card

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s starting to sound like a broken record.

The flip-flopping Republican again touted his anti-gay marriage stance while stumping in Colorado:

For those who are not familiar with it, of the four nationally leading candidates for president – and I count myself as one of those, but also Mayor (Rudy) Giuliani, and Sen. (John) McCain and Fred Thompson – there’s only one of us who’s in favor of a federal amendment to the constitution to limit marriage to the relationship between a man and a woman. And that’s me.

Romney conveniently forgot to mention Mike Huckabee, who scored second at last month’s Values Voter summit. For his part, Huckabee tells Rocky Mountain News that Romney’s simply “parsing his answers to suit the audience.” That is, after all, Romney’s M.O.

Hopefully Republican voters are smart enough to see through his marriage mirage.

    I simply “love” those compassionate and triangulating “liberal MA ex-governors”.

    First, there is William Weld, a Churchman by the by, who supported many good efforts and who actually presided over the same-sex marriage of his former aide.

    Then, Weld – stopped as Clinton’s ambassador to Mexico despite his linguistic and diplomatic competencies by Jesse Helms – went to NY and decided to run for governor as an anti-marriage equality candidate.

    Helm’s aide – a closeted guy with twenty five years and three children with his gay partner – marries in MA. So does Helm’s granddaughter – a lesbian.

    Then, you have, as Log Cabin points out, the Mitt Romney who lost his senatorial bid with Ted Kennedy as a me-too liberal, and the real Mitt the Mormon who served as governor of MA with his revival of a 1913 law banning others to marry there as non-residents that GLAD has not been able to lift in three almost four years.

    The man is finally “converted” back to the LDS faith. He can finally regain his temple recommend LOL.

    These people make me ill.
    I am living proof of this. I work at Kar’s Nut Products in Madison Heights Michigan and I hate that I have to parade around as straight. I work the late shift and get most of the lousy assignments too.
