Posted on 05/13/2012 6:11:10 PM PDT by xzins
A day after Mitt Romney said he was fine with gay adoption, he took it back. Suddenly, its not fine.
He said on Thursday: And if two people of the same gender want to live together, want to have a loving relationship, or even to adopt a child in my state, individuals of the same sex were able to adopt children. In my view, thats something that people have a right to do. But to call that marriage is something that, in my view, is a departure from the real meaning of that word.
On Friday,he was asked, in an interview with CBS affiliate WBTV in Charlotte, N.C., how his opposition to gay marriage squared with his support for gay adoptions. Romney told anchor Paul Cameron, Well, actually I think all states but one allow gay adoption,

Romney should say as little as possible.
We will either lose this election outright, or win it and discover too late that Romney has mental issues.
How CAN a man be a socialist and be on a Republican ticket, and how CAN a man who is a socialit be so damn vacuous???
This guy makes my head explode. We are looking at an air head with hair!
He could be shot out of a dang cannon and land apologizing for bouncing when he hit the ground!
This stuff is no sign of intellegence, accomplishment, depth, gravitas, political savy.
Hells, bells, his wife has to restate nearly his every utterance and she has to amp up her own persona to Mach X, just to have a prayer of being convincing when she stares into the camera saying Myth approaches ANYYHING in the vicinity of normal.
No convictions is right, cc!
Romney is programmed.
“Oh, God, why did we get stuck with this man?”
The same reason we got stuck with Dole and McCain - the GOP does not represent us anymore, if they ever really did. Time to wake up, get out of our comfort zone and take the bull by the horns.
I don’t think hummingbird was having George Romney thinking or speaking, but he is probably right about Mitt.
Mitt was with his father at the 1964 convention where Goldwater accepted and Reagan made his famous speech, when the liberal Governor George Romney made his formal protest against conservatism and stormed off the convention floor.
The liberal George Romney ran against Reagan and Nixon in 1968 as the anti-war candidate for President (while Mitt was staying out of the draft, and the public eye, in France) and suffered a humiliating national embarrassment as he was laughed out of the race for saying that he was “brainwashed” by the American military leadership while touring Vietnam.
Romney switched registration because of Reagan and did not support him, and from 1989 to 1993 when he reregistered republican his only political donations and fundraising was for democrats, Romney voted for Paul Tsongas, Romney hates the right, and has always wanted revenge against us.
Romney was also one of the few Republicans in 1994 to refuse to sign on to Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America.
* “My hope is that, after this election, it will be the moderates of both parties who will control the Senate, not the Jesse Helmses.”
* Look, I was an independent during the time of Reagan/Bush
Im not trying to return to Reagan/Bush.
* We must make equality for gays and lesbians a mainstream concern,
There is a force that has always been an obstacle and an enemy to the Romneys, a family who is used to power and adulation within their own community, the force that Romney hates, is us, conservatives, gun owners, Evangelicals, conservative Catholics, conservative Christians of all stripes, all of the various elements that make up the right, and who have blocked his families ambitions for generations.
Yep. And we have FREEPERS who are saying we need to vote for this fraud....no thank you. He is the worst candidate we have had in history. I tried to tell people if we did not get behind “named conservative candidate” that we would be stuck with Romney....obviously everything thought they were smarter and look what happened. Well I hope those people get extra people to go to the polls because I refuse to vote for this disaster. I want no part of it. I haven’t even been on FR lately because of Romney’s nomination....to depressing considering we had many other options. If Romney was the only one to announce that would be one thing, but considering we had a ton of better candidates, they can have it.
You are joining right? We know Romney’s internal beliefs, he is a liberal through and through. He always had been and he always will be.
Obama's Economy thanks us for the distraction.
Wonderful post! There are too many people letting themselves be fooled into believing that Romney doesn’t hate Conservatives and Christians, when his record and his past prove otherwise.
I truly don't understand the "sneaky" criticism. I also don't understand the reference to joining "back then", having been a member on Free Republic for over ten years. My preference for the GOP nomination would be Paul. I would, however, vote for Gingrich or Cain. In fact, I made several contributions to Cain's campaign. Where's the animus coming from, brother?
