    Put. A hood on Romney and he will be right at home. There is only one way with Romney and it is the Romney way. What ever religion he espouses to he is a wasp deep down. There is no magic bullet to get us out of forty years of fiscal and financial or wall street abuse and they all know it. It will take American will power and sacrifice and I don't think today's American people has it within them to do it.

    @Melissa If you want to be taken seriously...learn how to spell the word..."hatred" for starters!

    My experience has been that we don't change much deep down from childhood and my belief mitt has always
    Been homophobic and always will be and hides behind the man written bible of all things as his excuse and
    Who wrote the definition of marriage, man did and that it has been around for ages doesn't make it right.
    But logically we can use the institution of marriage of gay people as a great source of although not perfect, source of couples that can adopt otherwise unwanted children and give them a safe loving and nurturing environment to grow up in that does not cost the taxpayers billions in foster and orphanage dollars. Look at the
    Statistics most of these children grow up heterosexual. Look at the statistics showing how foster care and orphanage children turn out and you end up paying for their criminal defense and prison terms.

    I don't believe this because Romney is older than me and I don't even remember anyone using the word gay or anyone who was gay, I don't ever recall knowing what that was.....

    We all do stupid things in life. I'm not going to lose any sleep, over some gay being picked on. What the gays don't want you to hear about, are all the straight, nice looking, kids, who were mildly to severely, molested, when they were between, 11-13 Years old, to young to realize, that the camp counseler, or boy scout leader, who were in their late teens, early 20's were doing something, they shouldn't be doing. Romney might have screwed up a little, as a teen, Obama, is screwing up a lot, as president.

    Just remember: Obama only stated this view only for political gain. It was contrived. Meaning--it's totally insincere. It's not going to move mountains for gays with regard to future laws. No way! So, you really didn't gain a thing. Instead, the President hopes to gain your money for his campaign. You've been duped I'm afraid!

    @Melissa What a ridiculous statement! He never said he bullied a gay kid...more like a kid who's hair was too long. And to say that his sons would bully a gay boy is why the liberal left can never be trusted. You people just fabricate imaginary scenarios in hopes the average American is dumb enough to buy it. Believe me. They aren't. People are bullied all the time for a variety of reasons. If you're had problems you should have gone to the school authorities and gotten assistance, but don't make up crap about a political figure that you can't back up! It's merely your assumption! It's irresponsible and actually erodes whatever credibility you may possess!
