    Mitt Romney rushed to state his opposition to marriage equality in America after the President state his personal belief in human rights in this nation. Romney went out of his way to state marriage is for ONE man & ONE woman; appearing to imply same gender marriage would include polygamy. Will this hurt him in November? Was he trying to emphasize the long ago tradition of polygamy in the LDS church is just that?

    Actually, Romney didn't rush anywhere nor did he go out of his way to answer a question a reporter asked him.

    I believe that 30 states have passed legislation or amendments to their state constitution that marriage is between ONE man and ONE woman. That is over half of the 57 states that Obama campaigned in during the last election

    And, Obama merely left the marriage thing up to the states, which is what the Constitution requires. He can always flip flop back to evolving if this ploy doesn't work.

    Marriage is between one man and one woman. Anything different than that is politically correct horse shit.

    I hope you warmed up properly before taking that stretch.

    What will hurt Romney is deviating from the message that the economy sucks and Obama has been a disaster and needs to go.

    I read he quickly restated his opposition to both gay Americans marrying, and civil unions. Perhaps that was incorrect. The 57 states remark will not die, another bizarre far right oddity. I if Romney favored RE criminalizing gay sexual relations, YOU would have no problem with that.

    I asked a question, as some people keep bringing the LONG AGO polygamy practices up. I disapprove of that myself.

    The "57" states quote, and Obama's statement about marriage equality are part of the "arguments".

    The economy is too screwed up for enough people to give a shit about the culture warrior crap to make a difference.
