I’m watching the debate, during which Rick Santorum really misconstrued Gov. Romney’s record on gay rights.  Here’s the truth.

8 Responses to Did Gov. Romney Choose Gay Marriage? Santorum Misconstrues Romney’s Record

  1. Robin says:

    Nancy, thank you for that explanation. You and David are intellectuals of the highest order. How can we get your understanding out into the media? I am afraid people will believe what Santorum said and Romney will be hurt on false pretenses.

    • Brandon from NJ says:

      Santorum is mainly saying this because he’s down in the polls right now. Most people who are down really want to take someone else down with them. Frankly, as moderate as some are, however, this will only fly so much.

  2. RJLigier says:

    Santorum accurately depicted what actually transpired regarding Romney’s involvement in collusive litigation in order to implement homosexual marriage. Romney is a pathological liar. Romney could have waited to implement licenses for the 180 day period cited within the state’s constitution but to implement the distribution of marriage licenses and then throwing up token dissent by citing a 100 year statute. Combine Romney’s interference with the state legislature throwing up impediments by refusing to allow a referendum as provided for within the state’s constitution is nothing but collusive litigation. Romney will forever be known as the “Father of Homosexual Marriage.”

    • Brandon from NJ says:

      So what would you expect Romney to do, stand in front of the court building and obstruct anyone trying to get in? The real issue here is saying that there are separate responsibilities of church and state. The state’s only responsibility is to allow the dictates of the advanced healthcare directive, responsibility for child custody, dictates of one’s will and testament, settle divorce, and let someone ask for that time off work to run the wedding reception. The rest depnds completely on the individuals involved in the relationship, and it isn’t anyone else’s job to hold their hand and congratulate them all the time about it. Religions and nonprofit organizations don’t need to comply, and if there was a violation of these boundaries, I would be on that case like the Sun at the crack of dawn. Extreme positions on same-sex marriage take you nowhere on the national stage, and Mitt Romney did the best, most reasonable action in the situation while he was governor. It doesn’t cater to the extreme, but it’s reasonable.

      (Giving gene something to calm him down…)

      Just kidding!

      But I agree with him. The more details that come out about Mitt’s leadership abilities, his financial expertise and success at growing companies and jobs, the higher his credibility will climb in the eyes of the voters. He’ll need it, too, if the Demolition party, er, Democratic party goes after Mitt like say they’re going to do to whoever wins the GOP nomination. What else can they do? They certainly can’t run on Obama’s disastrous record.

    More Details About Mitt

    I watched a clip of Shaun Hannity interviewing Mitt after one of the recent debates. Very interesting. Mitt told him that as Governor of Massachusetts, he used his veto power over 800 times (to which Hannity commented “that’s a lot”), and that 85 percent of his state legislator consisted of Democrats. “I didn’t know that,” Hannity replied.

    I got the impression that Hannity came away from the interview with a slightly different opinion of Mitt than he has had before.

  5. Rick Schow says:

    Thanks to you wonderful Evangelicals for your hard work in support of Mitt. Sure, I am Mormon but I guarantee my support is not based on religion. Mitt is immensely qualified for the Oval Office…much more so than any candidates in the current field or in 2008 for that matter.
