Mitt Romney Slams Prop 8 Ruling as Prejudicial, Wrong

by at . Comments

Prop 8 has been overruled in California, as the 9th Circuit Court stated today that the state's ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional.

The decision has been met with mostly cheers Hollywood (Woohoo!! Die Prop 8 Die!!!! Tweeted Olivia Wilde), but with one big jeer by one major player in D.C. Likely Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney has just released a statement that reads:

Prop 8 Fan

“Today, unelected judges cast aside the will of the people of California who voted to protect traditional marriage. This decision does not end this fight, and I expect it to go to the Supreme Court. That prospect underscores the vital importance of this election and the movement to preserve our values. I believe marriage is between a man and a woman and, as president, I will protect traditional marriage and appoint judges who interpret the Constitution as it is written and not according to their own politics and prejudices.”

Romney easily defeated Newt Gingrich in the Nevada primary over the weekend and it will take the political comeback to end all political comebacks for anyone other than Mitt to take on Barack Obama this November.

Mittens throws around references to the Constitution. He belongs to a cult that was formed AFTER the constitution was written.

Yeah - don't you hate those courts that protect our Constiutional rights? My great-grandfather had 100 slaves and the damn courts took them all away. Then those damn courts let women and blacks vote. HOW DARE THEM DAMN COURTS. They sure didn't care about the will of the people when they let all those slaves loose. Why, we would still have slavery today in some states if the damn courts hadn't stuck their noses in and went against the WILL OF THE PEOPLE. Because of them damn courts, women can own as much property as men. WE MUST PUT AN END TO ALL UNELECTED COURTS. THE MAJORITY SHOULD ALWAYS RULE - so watch out you blacks, Jews, Muslim, Hindu, women and every other minority. When Mitt gets in office, we are going to vote all your asses back to the Stone Age.

What was Obamas take on all this? I'm guessing he sits and twiddles him Thumbs as usual. The subject of Gays is not really a priority. Yet he did have an immediate response on accusing Boston Police of Profiling/ Police brutallity in regards to the Harvard Professor when Police were answering a dispatcher call.

Well said Mitt! I don't think a court should be able to overrule the people, just lower courts... Time to get rid of this unjust court.
