You gave us McCain and hence Obama. I don’t think you got much room to throw stones.

While it’s true that Romney is not an Alan Keyes clone in terms of defending conservative principles, it is equally true that he was not the most liberal Governor in U.S. history. Romney was a statist. He will do want the people want who elect. In Massachusetts, he was elected to be fiscally conservative and socially moderate. And guess what he was!

Gay marriage was forced on the people of Massachusetts and Romney strong armed the legislature to fight aganst it, and filed several lawsuits to prevent it. However, he did not take the Alan Keyes approach and override the legislature. The Alan Keyes approach, while from a different political perspective, is identical to what the gay mobs want to do in California, ignore the process outlined in their state’s constitution to right a wrong because the greater good is at risk.

Right. And you support him. That's about all I need to know.

What a load of bunk.

The legislature did nothing in response to Goodridge, which was the proper course. Romney, although nothing obligated him to do so whatsoever, used Goodridge as an excuse to institute gay "marriage." Thereby making a mockery of constitutional governance and fulfilling his campaign promises to the gay lobby in spades.

You are clueless about what happened in this particular case, and the constitutional duties of the respective branches of government generally. Which makes you a perfect Romneyite. Such ignorance is Mitt's stock in trade.
