The republicans and the democrats have all been brainwashed by the same college professors after all. They all secretly agree with each other on abortion, and gun control, and immigration, and giving our industrial base to communist china. people don't like to hear that though.
Pass the Chic-Fil-A please.
And it’s this type of condescending crap that would have prevented him from a second term as gov.
What a jerk.
Private organization have to be able to do what they want. Not should be able to, but have to be able to.
The convention has not happened yet. We need to get rid of this bozo.
The Honeybadger troop?
I’ve had it with the GOP and their elitist establishment talking heads on TV and radio.
If Sarah, Allen West, michelle, Demint, Cain, an dothers set up a new party then I;m there with them.
Maybe those I mentioned need to tell the GOP that they will do that unless they get back to what the repblcian party stood for.
This is starting to remind me of the people led by lizards in the last hitchhiker’s guide book.
I wasn’t going to vote for mittens, but after the SCOTUS Obamacare decision, felt we needed to get rid of it.
I now no longer care. I will not pull the lever for this person. No way. No how.
Claire Wolfe was right.
See number 4 on the list.
I can’t stand Romney. We MUST send as m,any conservatives as possible to D.C. Obama or Romney, neither of them are on our side. But conservatives on the Hill can mitigate the damage either of these two clowns are capable of.
We need a Conservative candidate of the far right. There’s been enough pussycatting around to last for a century of elections!
The convention needs a big shake-up and a true American Conservative must emerge!
He LOST IOWA, but the MSM lied.
HE cheated in ME, and NH, and NC and FLA.
Backstabbed in 2008, and cheated in 2011 and 2012.
What, other than CREATING ObamaCARE, Death Panels,
and gay marriage, could make Mr.RomneyCARE
more attactive to the GOPe.
Answer: CHEATING and BACKSTABBING Conservatives!!!!!
I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.
Seems to me he said FIRST that he supports their right to do as they please. That’s good enough to me. What really bothers me about this is the same thing that bothers me about libs. The thought police. Romney should be allowd to feel however he wants as long as he does not impose his beliefs on others. It’s called freedom.
And if they admited homosexual adults, I can guarantee you my son wouldn’t be anywhere near them.
And Romney is our only choice?
Hey Mitt! STFU!
We don't need a gang of boy-raping perverts harvesting and recruiting our kids. Keep your mitts off!..it's a private organization.
You should be concentrating on getting these filthy whackjob predators OUT of America's institutions, where they proliferate, not helping them get in.
McCain all over again. A mushy, split the baby down the middle, stand for nothing RINO.
1994...long time ago. I dont think we can take another 4 years of the turkey we got.
The line has been crossed.
Romney must never become President.
“I support the right of the Boy Scouts of America to decide what it wants to do on that issue.”
They HAVE decided. The answer was NO.
He’s an admitted Progressive just like Obama so what did you expect?
He’s from Massachussets which was the first state to implement gay marriage and collectivist healthcare.
A vote for the Willard is a vote for the Zero and vice versa. That’s why I’m still going to write Sarah’s name in for POTUS.
He knows conservatives have no use for him or his stances. I’m sure he’s already looking for his allies on the other side of the aisle.
What a bleeping idiot and his campaign people are just as dumb
HOMOSEXUALS LEADERS my Butt
Pedophiles trolling for kids is what they really are
You have to be a naive fool not to realize it
I'm not sure about the "America wanted" part. I think that Romney shrewdly manipulated the Media's desire to continually pit one conservative rival against another in the Republican primary, cancelling out the conservative majority in each successive primary. Hence, "Mr. 2nd-Place" gets the nomination.
Unfortunately, finishing 2nd in the general election gets us nothing. Just ask John McCain.
This kind of stuff is going to kill Romney’s chances.
As for sending gay men on camping trips with young boys, I'm amazed that anyone is arguing for the right of strange men to spend time with children under inadequate supervision. I know BSA's policies on two deep leadership, but the fact is that the policies only add a small extra obstacle for predators and perverts to overcome.
Hell he couldn’t even win his “home state” of Michigan. In 08 he finished nearly 10 points up on John McCain and in 2012 he tied Rick Santorum.
We could have finished him off right there but the 6 man rules committee changed the delegate allocation rules the night AFTER the primary.
Reminds me of the old story about the scorpion and the frog.
Conservative talk show hosts should be all over this damn idiot —Let’s see what blowhard Limbaugh or Ann Coulter do ?
WE as conservatives haven’t anybody representing us in this coming election, and I don’t see it changing with the forthcoming convention.
Romney is a Liberal, an extreme Liberal by his track record, and he hasn’t changed. Only some of his rhetoric has changed in effort to appear the conservative, but as most of those types their being what they are prohibits them from fully cloaking whom they are.
It’s a damned shame. A damned shame, as well quite disheartening.
This kind of stuff is going to kill Romneys chances.
I think that he and his handlers figure that the Conservatives, Rinos, And fence sitters have no where else to go if they are voting against Obama. So if that is true, why not try to gather in more liberal-leaning voters with statements in favor of the Homosexual lobby.
What really gets me going is that he is probably correct since their is no true conservative in the race for President. My vote this year is going for electing the most conservative candidates to office. Maybe that will get his attention?
I agree with Romney....the BSA should decide their policy..not saying that I would agree with homosexual approval, but that the organic needs to decide.
Some of them at least think that because Mitt made gobs of money, he must understand the economy. Unfortunately, making a lot of money doesn't necessarily mean someone knows or cares about the economy as a whole; they've just mastered the niche(s) they operate in.
Knowing how to maneuver in or manipulate the system is as likely to make you gobs of money as great talent, great ideas or hard work. Look at Warren Buffett or Donald Trump.
Romney knows a bunch of conservative "copybook maxims" about the economy and sprinkles them about. Not the same thing as understanding the economy -- or caring how it affects anyone else!
There’s various third party entries, there’s writing in Sarah, but our only real hope is a miracle in Tampa, and I don’t know what it would take to persuade God we deserve one last chance.
Tel us how .
Most of us don’t like this Dick either, but we have a chopice of him or Obama.
There is no way on this green earth to have another candidate at this late date.
If we had another who would it be, another chithead just like this one.
Paul is a nut, Gingrich is dead in the water, Santorum sucks,
and Goode has about as much chance as a snowball in hell.
Unfortunately, that almost says something good about Romney - if you ain’t cheatin’ you ain’t tryin’.
He might be able to stand up to Democrat cheating.
Are you still holding on to that flimsy claim that this is PYSOPS 1010RD?
Romney is a liberal. There is no point in denying it. He should pick Sen Grahamnesty as a VP running mate or maybe Guiliani or Bloomberg and quit this destructive fake conservative act.
Is there some reason why boy scouts need to express their sexuality anyway?
Well They haven’t done it so far.
The republicans in Congress have done nothing over the recess appointment, the Immigration law Obama made, DOMA, or anything else Obama has shoved up our azzes.
I have no more faith in republicans than I do in Democrats.
Democrats are powere crazed loons and Republicans are a pack of wimps like Boehner.
homosexual-loving—where do you get that?
I will definitely vote for him over Obama! How about you?
OK, admit homosexuals, but only if they are Mormon bishops!
I congratulate the Boy Scouts of America for putting the kids ahead of political correctness and the drumbeat of the news media, TV and Hollywood. Protect the boys first.
The Boy Scouts didn’t make this an issue; others have. Everything seems to be about sex and sex education these days. Our country has bigger challenges than the forced conformity of acceptance of members of the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual community.
What do you think he would do if he were President of the BSA?
It is astounding to me that Mr. Romney, a father of 5 boys, thinks it is perfectly fine that Boy Scout leaders, counselors, etc. are openly homosexual.
I stand with the Boy Scouts.
Bingo! Well stated. I've often said that capable people with less than conservative personal beliefs should not be automatically discounted if they are willing to put "feelings" aside and abide by the will of the people.
Not all homosexuals are pedophiles, but all male pedophiles who prey on young boys are.....homosexual. Just a fact.
I'm certainly no angel by any stretch and I try my best not to hold others sin above my own.
With that said, homosexuality is against God's natural law. By promoting this as an acceptable lifestyle and teaching youngins this is simply mocking our creator.
When the Lord has had enough, HE will not hold back his judgment and it will be terrible.
I really dislike establishment candidates. I do not know what Romney is trying to prove with his nonsensical and immoral positions on homosexuality and abortion.
Maybe he does not understand the vices of homosexuality, the connection between pedophilia and homosexuality, the compromising of policies against sexual abuse of children. Maybe he has never gone camping with scouts. Maybe Romney is too insulated and too far away from the fundamental foundation of a moral society and culture.
I plan to vote for Romney for President for the same reason many voters of all persuasions - to replace the current corrupt administration with fresh new faces for temporary relief.
The Boy Scout Handbook would need to be expanded to include rules for boy-boy romancing.
The Boy Scouts should admit homosexuals? No, I don’t want a self-admitted homosexual to be anywhere near my children whether they are the adult troop leader or the young man in the next bunk. Since they are self admitted, they are welcome to form their own organization.
Campaign spokeswoman Andrea Saul confirmed that Mitt Romney continues to hold that belief today.
However, she said Romney, who served as a member of its executive board, has not pressured the organization to change its stance and does not wish to see the Scouts forced to accept homosexuals. LifeSiteNews.com revealed that some chapters of the Boy Scouts do not consider the national organizations prohibition of homosexuals serving as scouts or adult leaders binding policy.
And so The Stupid Party perpetuates the cyle of decline and ruin. Not that our largely godless country doesn't deserve it, of course.
