Wonderful Romney-the-RINO defense on ONE issue. However, his Liberal stance on nearly all issues, including Romneycare and STATED position that he won’t Repeal Obamacare, he will “fix it” meaning he thinks the Gubmint should run the Healthcare for EVERYONE, with an individual MANDATE to buy it. He’s a loser, and Gingrich will kick his ass from now to the Nomination.
MESSED IT UP ABOVE, REPOST:
As Governor, Romney Said “I Do” To Gay Marriage AT Least 189 Times
As a gay-marriage proponent, I was pleased to learn that then-Governor Willard Mitt Romney (R Massachusetts) issued at least 189 special-issue, one-day marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2005 alone.
While Team Romney argues that the SJC forced it to give gay couples conventional marriage licenses, the special, one-day licenses are a strictly gubernatorial choice, as Massachusetts law unambiguously states:
Scott Helman and Scott S. Greenberger reported in the January 2, 2006 Boston Globe that The applications Romney approved from same-sex couples included at least four from state legislators, including Jarrett T. Barrios, a state senator from Cambridge, members of the clergy from out of state, family members, and friends.
If Romney truly opposed gay marriage as fervently as he claims, he could have exercised his discretion and refused to grant these one-day licenses to same-sex couples. A tougher-but-fairer policy would have denied such licenses to everyone gay or straight. Instead, under no obligation to do so, Romney chose to give these particular licenses to gay couples.
Fans of gay marriage should thank Romney for these 189 or more instances in which he voluntarily used his gubernatorial authority to unite these same-sex couples so they might live happily ever after.
Foes of gay matrimony should ask Willard Mitt Romney if he really meant it when he said, I have never supported same-sex marriage. If so, why did he use his discretionary power to do just that at least 189 times?
