WATCH: “Mitt Gets Worse” Points Out Romney’s Devolution On Marriage Equality

From “I’ll Be Better For Gay Rights Than Ted Kennedy” to “marriage is between a man and a woman,” Mitt Romney has Etch-A-Sketched his way from being a “compassionate conservative” on the issue to pandering to the basest, most anti-gay factions of the conservative base.

The difference between Obama and Romney is even starker now that Obama’s come out of the closet in support of marriage.

I mean, even Asia gets it:

    Romney leads Obama by his highest lead yet, the week after the anniversary of Rambo Obama having single handedly killed Osama Bin Laden according to Rasmussen. Know why? Because voters care about the economy period. Not stupid sh!t. A job is a job. We tried him, he failed. Bye.

  • Troglodyte

    You folks who believe this is a one-issue election—gay marriage—have your heads so far up your asses that your boyfriends must be jealous. Try paying attention to the happenings outside of your rose-colored bubble and do something with your vote besides furthering your own agenda. Obama is trying to sell the country out, period. If you want to have to answer to Chinese corporations in the coming years because they own all of our assetts, knock yourselves out and vote for BHO.

    @Troglodyte: My boyfriend always gets insanely jealous every time I shove my head up my ass. The farther I go, the more jealous he gets. Oh, that crazy green-eyed boyfriend of mine.

    @Troglodyte: Yeah, those $2 trillion wasted in Iraq and tax cuts for billionaires, oops, that was Bushshit……

  • Ernest Edward

    I find it funny how people blatantly attack Obama as if it’s all his fault. Obama can’t get shit done thanks to Capitol Hill opposing everything he tries to accomplish. There is a lot more behind the scenes bullshit that the American public does not see. Obama was left with a huge mound of BUSHshit to clean up. Had it been any other elected you idiots would be saying the same exact thing. Really get educated, you sound like fucking idiots!

  • Mark

    Thank God Obama “can’t get things done”. As a small business owner with 10 employees he scared the crap out of me. His anti-business penchant is going to kill him. Romney’s going to cakewalk in I don’t care what the generated pre-drama is. NBC could get photos of him at 4 stomping a baby chick, he’s still better than a damn socialist.

    “Three thousand years of human history shouldn’t be discarded so quickly”—How quickly *can* we discard it, then?

    Actually hearing it… that laugh when he says “I don’t remember that incident” doesn’t sound like a general laugh at the sort of incident it was. It sounds like the laugh of someone unexpectedly reminded of something he remembers fondly, then realizes he has to deny ever happened.

  • Troglodyte

    @Ernest Edward: You seem to conveniently forget that Obomber had a Democratic congress for two years—TWO YEARS!—to work with, and he still didn’t accomplish shit. Are those the actions of a president who wants to accomplish things? No. Instead of making him out to be a victim of partisan politics, instead you should be accusing him of basking in the glory of the presidency without having to do the work.

    @Mike in Asheville: You seem to be mistaking me for someone who supported W. I am not that person. But this is the Internet, so keep trolling, I’m sure you’ll find someone who shares in your delusions.

    @Troglodyte: Your tirade won’t change the fact that he’s still the lesser of two evils. Sorry. It was a good try though. A little better than Mark’s.

    @Mark: Mentioning his failures do not really unearth Romney’s success. Sorry. Better bone up though. Romney’s PR Office might decide to replace you with someone like JASON who may very well do a better job just by copy-pasting his newest mantra: “Romney was actually one of the most gay-friendly governors.”

  • Belize

    @Troglodyte: “You seem to conveniently forget that Obomber had a Democratic congress for two years—TWO YEARS!”

    Wow. Someone surely failed in political science. He only got two years? No wonder you can find a way to criticize him. ;)

    Mitt Romney is very gay-friendly. He doesn’t discriminate. Any pranks he played on gay people were matched by pranks he played on straight people. Don’t fall for the retrospective gay victim card in which supposedly gay victims of his supposed bullying are coming out of the woodwork 50 years later.

    Obama had a dominant Democrat Congress for nearly 2 years but did not pass any pro-gay legislation during that time.

  • Hyhybt

    @jason: Blatant lie. Two off the top of my head are the repeal of DADT and the hate crimes act. You can argue all you like about motives and timing and whatever, but pretending either that those didn’t happen or that they don’t qualify a “pro-gay legislation” is simply a lie.

  • jason

    Andy Towle of Gay Inc’s Towleroad seems to have gone off his head about Mitt Romney. Almost every post about Mitt is negative. Memo to Andy: you’ve become tiresome and your website is becoming a drag. Start being a bit more objective, goose.

  • jason

    Put it this way: Obama said gay marriage is up to the states. This means that you won’t be getting any federal gay marriage legislation from Obama.

    Can’t you see that he’s using you for the purpose of raising funds. How stupid can gay people get? You must enjoy being lied to and used.

  • Outraged

    Wow, all these pro-Romney posts have totally convinced me! I don’t need my rights, I should vote for Romney.

    Thanks, conservative spam-posters! I’m totally convinced! You can leave and never come back now!

  • Hyhybt

    @jason: Not quite. In order for this to become truly a states rights issue, the federal government must defer to the states. That means eliminating DOMA. It also means working to block attempts by the other side to work around that repeal (should it happen) and similar matters, just as supporting the DADT repeal involves fighting against attempts to minimize or reverse its effects.
