Skip to comments.Obama & Gay Marriage: Is GOP best response: "Romney did it too" OR "Romney did it First"?
Posted on 05/10/2012 6:33:32 AM PDT by xzins
Barack Obama has come out of the closet....at least about gay marriage. Until now he has kept Willie and Pete stuffed in a corner behind Moochelle's expensive sweaters and shoes. Tiring of hiding them, and with so much cash and positive media coverage at stake, he finally ushered them out into the limelight as his version of North Carolina smackdown. How dare those yokel Tarheels vote down gay marriage! Damn hillbillies!
Republicans have rallied to North Carolina's side!
Uhhh....wait a minute...last night's Fox News "Red Eye" spent most of the showing demeaning all things North Carolina decision as well. How dare they vote down everyone's God given right to poke holes in a cesspool. (See Romans 1&2 about same-sex relationships and inexcusable violations of nature.)
Now for Republicans, the bad news. (No, I actually mean conservatives who are supporting the GOP so far this year. If it ever did, Republican no longer equals conservative.)
Mitt Romney had gay marriage out of his closet years ago. So the only question is this. When responding to Obama's initiative is it best for a conservative: (1) To be silent (The I need to avoid hypocrisy response), or (2) To Say "Romney did it too." (The I want some media adulation too response), or (3) To say, "Romney did it best!" (The proudly grab the initiative response.)
Please spare me the arguments about Romney either converting or not really being able to help what he did. If he converts any more than he has in the past, Romney will get his own Transformer action figure.
And if we argue "He couldn't help it." maybe he should get his own bobblehead, 'cause the Good Lord knows, it's enough to make you laugh at a silly drifting with the wind character. And it will keep you from crying.
Did anyone catch Shep Smith’s glib descriptions of anyone who opposes Gay Marriage in questions yesterday to Brett Baher and the WH Correspondent? He phrased his questions with sarcasm to sound like anyone who opposes Gay Marriage doesn’t live in this century. I am beginning to think Shep is Gay himself.
If you saw the neighbor boy trying to mate with a knothole or his cat, you’d yell at him and think he should be in an institution. Yet, if a man attempts to mate with another man’s anal canal, or a woman attempts to mate with an electrified rubber appliance, that’s OK? They are as insane as the kid trying to mate with a knothole.
You're a little late to the party, but welcome, just the same.
“Little late to the party”. I plead guilty. Shep probably has the one Fox show that I rarely watch, therefore, I haven’t paid much attention to him in the past.
GOP response should be: “no hungry children have been fed by the recent focus on same sex marriage. President Obama continues to fail on the economy.”
Liberals do not want liberty for anyone.
They would rather dictate what we do, what we buy, where we go and when, and what we can do while there.
The Republic you save may be your own.
I do not have a high regard for the rational abilities of any man Romney’s age since he truly believes in a cult. The claims are so ridiculous, the irrationality can be detected by teenagers. I do admire many Mormons lifestyles, but not their intellectual capacity and reasoning skills.
Romney has voiced his support of “civil unions” which is validating an obscene nihilistic sexual urge which gives it legal force—to force the sexualization onto young children which is what discussions of any “right” to sodomy which can NEVER exist in a sane society. The idea of sodomy is “good” forced by laws to be forced onto the “thinking” of young children, destroys logic and thinking in children. Just Laws—read my tagline.
The whole discussion of “homosexuality” “civil unions’ is to sexualize children—to desensitize them to the issue. It posits the idea of sodomy as “good”—to destroy all Judeo/Christian ethics which it always undermines and focus attention on sex which destroys the normal sexual formation of children—innocence in childhood is essential for normal sexual development. Abused children grow up to be abnormal. Look up Afghanistan boys beliefs.
Ideas are everything and create the future worldview of children. We need to promote the Constitution which is about the Laws of Nature and Common Sense. There is no sense in recognizing obscene nihilistic actions —to promote the General Welfare????? What a laugh.
Worldview is learned in the formative years....we are forcing the pagan practices where pederasty was also normal (since it was a natural urge). Reason should always trump urges in law.
Christianity can not exist if it doesn’t contain sexual morality. It becomes religionless—as Bonhoeffer stated when he went to so called “Christian” churches in NYC funded by the pagan Rockefeller in 1931.. Mormons are not Christians, btw.
They have a history of racism and sexism and polygamy....things considered irrational and evil by Christian Theology. Christianity, as DiSouza wrote in his book on Christianity—researches religions and Christianity is the most rational religion in the history of man. Because of men like St. Thomas Aquinas—the Father of Catholic Theology—basically took Christianity and aligned it with Natural Law Theory (Reason and logic).
Not that I would ever vote for a Marxist like zero....I am very disappointed in the “choice” of GOP candidate and will hold my nose like I did last election.
The system is rigged by the One Worlders. I know that....they have to destroy the Virtue which is necessary for a Civil society with freedom to exist.
If you study the Cultural Marxists from the 1930’s, you can understand the Marxist/progressive force of abnormal irrational “lifestyle” choices It is to destroy all our institutions, make laws “irrational”—exactly opposite of what is required for Just law—to take down the fundamental building block of all free societies—the family unit and God.
Let’s not talk about social issues, they don’t matter. Let’s just talk about the economy. Who cares about the nation’s embrace, and Romney’s embrace, of the UNNATURAL?
Let us be clear, if UNNATURAL is OK in one realm, it is also OK in others. Over-spending is a MORAL issue first, but we say ignore morality.
We have millions who are just fine with voting for those who will overspend and overspend to keep them in things.
They will willingly try to suspend the NATURAL LAW of cause and effect. As we know, though, it will come crashing down on their heads.
Why? Because they ignore morality thinking they are the gods of their own destiny.
Social issues and economic issues do go hand in hand....the breakup of the traditional family is a pre-requisite for the Welfare State.
Absolutely awesome post, gator. Thanks.
In a congress of democrats, rinos, and conservatives, a pro-gay Romney will be able to push the gay agenda if he decides to. The dems + the rinos + the president will equal a majority.
Except for his secret ambitions, Mitt Romney would be a democrat. We all know it.
I think it would be best if the GOP not lie, so that would rule out both of your suggestions.
You missed my point, and made it - at the same time. That’s quite a trick.
Apparently I meet with your approval except when I don’t.
And there are Rinos trying to make the case Romney is so great and will be the most conservative candidate on earth, while they plan on backstabbing conservatives. In fact some Dems have joined to chorus because they can get Romney to the nomination which is nearly complete and then have it much easier than with Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum. The Dems infiltrated the GOP and backed Romney, IMO.
Why on earth do you think that is possible? Romney has proven over and over again the only principle he believes in is doing what is best for himself.
Putting the fate of conservatism in the hands of a man with no principles will set the conservative movement back at least a decade. A Romney Presidency means eight years without even a moderately conservative President in the White House and guarantees Republican loses in Congress and at the state level.
You just don't seem to grasp the dangers of a Romney Presidency.
So in other words, Democrat infiltrators and Rinos are desperately trying to fool the public that Romney would be so much better than Obama. Then they’ll attack him or get him to move even further left than Obama.
Obamas supporters (Obamabots) and Romneys supporters (Mittbots) are both non-conservative. The real conservatives are fighting both guys tool and nail each step of the way.
Virgil Goode: On the Issues
It is becoming apparent that the DNC (with the help of the media) are going to keep throwing this crap out to keep the discussion everywhere but where it should be: the economy.
Of course its asking a lot for a party stupid enough to nominate Romney to figure this out.
