    Mitt Romney said Tuesday that the problems inflicted by President Obamaís policies are even worse than he predicted during the 2012 presidential campaign. ďItís been a good deal worse than even I expected,Ē Mr. Romney told reporters after headlining a rally here for Republican candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. ďI was not a big fan of the presidentís policies, as you know, either domestically or internationally,Ē he said. ďBut the results of his mistakes and errors, in my opinion, have been more severe than even I would have predicted.Ē

    A group that opposes the Boy Scouts of Americaís ban on gay members is using presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to help make its case. Romneyís campaign restated his position that gay people should be allowed to join the Boy Scouts of America in an Associated Press story published on Saturday. Romney first declared his support for gay scouts and leaders in 1994 -- when he was a member of the organizationís executive board -- during an unsuccessful run for US Senate. In a debate that year, Romney said, ďI support the right of the Boy Scouts of America...

    Jennifer Tyrrell, the den leader who was "fired" by her local Cub Scout troop for being gay, said that her 7-year-old son Cruz will not remain in the national organization because of its discrimination against gay leaders and scouts. In March, the Boy Scouts of America removed Tyrrell from her position, telling her that her sexual orientation "did not meet the high standards" of conduct set by the Boy Scouts of America "We can no longer support an organization that has these policies and we hope to get them changed," said Tyrrell. "That is our main goal."

    Mitt Romney is on the hunt for a vice presidential candidate, and if his years running Bain Capital are any indication, he might be looking for a version of himself. In his roughly 25 years at Bain, Romney tended to hire mini-Mitts ó smart, ambitious, clean-cut and a little awkward, according to those who dealt closely with the men. Romney built the private equity firm, a spinoff of the consulting firm Bain & Co., from the ground up in the mid-1980s, bringing on several people who would help him turn it into an investment giant. ďFirst-rate brain power, first-rate analytical...

    CBS NEWS ^ | /12/2012 | Jennifer DePinto
    Even though Romney's chief rival, Rick Santorum, has suspended his campaign, states continue to hold primaries. There are five contests on April 24th with 219 delegates at stake; but even if Romney won every single delegate that day he would be far short of 1,144. Wyoming and Missouri are holding conventions before April 24th where Romney may pick up some delegates but even winning all of them wouldn't bring him much closer to the magic number. Looking ahead, Romney would need to win about 80 percent of the delegates available in the April and May events to possibly clinch on...

Homosexuals already have the same "rights" as everyone else. God did not grant and the constitution does not guarantee homosexuals any special rights. In fact, the homosexual agenda is a full frontal attack on OUR God-given, constitutionally protected rights to free speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association, Life, Family, Marriage, Pursuit of Happiness, etc. I don't want it on FR and won't have it on FR.

    Gov. Mitt Romney stepped on a landmine by appointing Richard Grenell, an out, loud and proud homosexual, to be his spokesman on national security and foreign policy issues. Grenell has for years been an outspoken advocate for homosexual marriage. In fact, word is that he left the Bush administration because President Bush would not formally acknowledge his homosexual partner. Since, as the saying goes in D.C., personnel is policy, this means Gov. Romney has some Ďsplaining to do. This clearly is a deliberate and intentional act on his part, since he was well aware of Mr. Grenellís sexual proclivities and...

So Magill is looking for reasons to get jazzed about the candidate he once dismissed. His list so far: Romney is a Republican who would sign into law legislation passed by a GOP-led House. Romney has started to hit the right talking points. If elected, Romney would have to listen to the conservative base - or risk its wrath at reelection time. Also, and perhaps most important, Romney is not Barack Obama. The conservative...

If Romney really is the political animal his detractors on the right suspect him to be, heíll shape his presidency with a single goal: Winning a second term. To do that, he will need to make sure there is no running room on his right for someone to launch a primary challenge.

    Christians who support Romney in Primary are responsible for advancing a polytheistic pagan doctrine and leading potentially millions of souls to state of deception. The God of Israel said He is the Alpha & the Omega, the beginning and the end. He said there is only ONE God. Mormonism says there are infinite numbers of gods throughout the universe and THEY can be gods themselves, just like God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ. This is heresy. Mitt Romney is a heretic just as Barack Obama is a heretic Here's WHY (just scratching the surface).

Wins this week by Romney in three primaries pushed him past the halfway mark in the delegate count, although his nearest competitor, Rick Santorum, contests the way the delegates are being awarded. Romney leads all contenders with 573 delegates, more than double his closest rival, Santorum's 202, out of a total 1,144, according to the RNC. Newt Gingrich, who has dialed back his campaign to making phone calls to delegates, has 132 while Ron...

    Mitt Romney won't be doing any apology tours on climate change. The early GOP presidential front-runner has broken with his party's conservative ranks to declare global warming a real threat to the planet that merits some sort of action to curb heat-trapping emissions. But the former Massachusetts governor is also quick to trash cap and trade, carbon taxes and other controversial policies that have been kicked around over the last decade in Washington. In a sense, Romney's initial global warming stance sounds a lot like that of former President George W. Bush, who during his two terms reluctantly accepted climate...
