Get back to me when he commits to re-instating “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”.
Right now he is on record as leaving things as they are with DADT.
Until that time, he is simply pandering to me and other conservative Christians.
Whatevuh. I’m SO SICK of being USED as a ‘special interest group’ just like the Demo-cruds do. Everything is ‘pigeon-holed’. ENOUGH, already. Be for “life....liberty....and the pursuit of happiness”.
He is looking to 2016 or 2024. He has to to do this. It means NOTHING.
It doesn’t mean that Romney is trustworthy.
I am going to vomit.
"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;...that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them.

Any support he gets from Christian conservatives is very grudging and reluctant.
For the record, I voted for Santorum in the Texas Primary last month when Romney was the only candidate still in the race.
Texas was late in the cycle in 2008 as well, Alan Keyes got my vote then over Romney-McCain-Huckabeeyeeyeeyeeeee.
How is four years of, either, Obama, or Romney healthy for the long-term future of U.S. conservatism? The only major political candidates left for ‘12 POTUS are, both, leftists, and the U.S. is in for some more, major “hurting”, with either one as POTUS! Mitt’s ego is way too big to listen to and then, actually, act upon all that conservatives, really, want Mitt to do as POTUS, and having conservatives attempt to “hold Mitt’s feet to the fire”, in order to make Mitt into a, truly, conservative POTUS won’t work. The U.S. will become a third world, socialistic country, soon enough, unfortunately, but, please prove me wrong.
...guess Rick is only ‘pro-life’ up to a point...
