Well they’ve already nominated a candidate who did more for gay marriage as governor than Obama did as president.

Romney supported the proposed Constitutional Amendment in Massachusetts defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is an easily verifiable fact.

The Massachusetts Supreme Court's specious "interpretation" of the state constitution is the reason "gay marriage" is the status quo at this time. (Goodridge vs. Dept. of Public Health) The 80% Rat legislature obstructed the Constitutional Amendment vote in order to allow the supreme court's "gay marriage" interpretation to stand in MA.

The effect of the MA Supreme Court's ridiculous interpretation of the state constitution regarding "gay marriage" is an exact parallel to the current legal situation in regard to Obamacare. We need the Congress to overthrow Obamacare or we are stuck with John Robert's court's bizarre ruling, and in MA, action by the legislature was necessary to prevent the supreme court's ruling from remaining the final word on the subject. Unfortunately, the Rat legislature, with their obstructionist tactics, chose to trample the citizens' right to vote.

It's within the realm of possibility that the state constitution could be amended in future under a less corrupt legislature.

"Romney supported the proposed Constitutional Amendment in Massachusetts defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is an easily verifiable fact. "

That's the problem with Mr. Etch-a-sketch. One moment he's campaigning for governor promising gays he will offer more support for their causes than Ted Kennedy. The next he's supporting a constitutional amendment defending marriage. Then he's personally rolling out gay marriage, when he didn't have to.

Which candidate demanded Boy Scouts accept gays in leadership positions? Romney

Who named a well known gay activist as a key spokesman? Romney

Keyes: Romney responsible for same-sex marriage fiasco
“Mitt Romney pushed through same-sex marriage all by himself, in the absence of any authority or requirement to do so, having a complete misunderstanding of his role as governor and of the significance of the court’s opinion,” said Keyes."

Romney did more for Gay Marriage nation wide as Governor of Mass than Obama did as President. I can't vote for either.
