    Poor Mitt. He just can't seem to catch a break. I guess his handlers need to keep him on a shorter leash - away from "those" people.

    You know the wonderful thing about human beings is... we can handle multiple priorities.

    Or do you just have a one track mind? Do you neglect your family because you can only think about how to pay the bills?

    All considered, Romney handled the situation well. At least he didn't try and appease the guy by flip-flopping on the fly. It's clear who that vet will be voting for in the next election :lol:

    I heard a report of a former supporter of Romney. When asked why he changed his mind about supporting Romney, he replied, "I met him."

    Might be a logical step for someone to define what they mean by 'marriage' when asking about 'gay marriage'. For example, I do not support 'gay marriage' because my personal view is that marriage is a religious commitment made before God. It has jack shit to do with the government. Having said that, if you ask me if gay couples should have the same rights and responsibilities as the rest of us.... my response is 'yes'.

    Seems to me, gays need to recognize that not everyone shares their definition of 'marriage'.

    So repealing legislation that allows for gay marriage should be a priority over all that stuff. But opposing repeal should not be a priority, because those other things are more important. :cuckoo:

    I hate to burst your dim little bubble, but I'm not gay. It is possible to support a group or an issue without being part of that group. I know that's hard for people like you to understand. What can I tell you? Get out and open your mind a little, I guess.

    Well, the same could be said of straight people, no?
