    I believe Mormons shouldn’t be allowed to practice their silly religion in public or in front of impressionable children. If I can get enough of “the people” to agree with me can I oppress you too, Mitt?

  2. walter says

    mitt seems to forget his grandfather and great grandfather fled this country because they didn’t exactly believe in one woman one man and half the women were nothing more than children

    well Romney stands for a political party that remains behind in the times, full of hate and remorse that there is any sort of progress or opportunity for anyone to be happy or get ahead…marrying someone and protecting yourself and your partner are as natural as it gets…who wouldn’t want to protect their significant other….he should talk to older couples when one partner is sick or dying and see how lives are destroyed because of ridiculous outdated laws he clings to

    People like Romney who killed a man in Europe – and whose whole family since the Mexico days is based on getting out of military service should not be allowed to marry.

    I’m really happy that I can live with another man, gay or straight. I mean, sure that happened in college and afterward, but I guess it wasn’t formally approved by such a Big Thinker back then. But now it’s my right!

    He has a HUGE future in public speaking. Talk about correct and concise!

    What’s with these loser Republicans like Romney and McCain who keep appearing on the Sunday talking head shows to pontificate about how bad the winners are, and why they are so right about everything if only they had been elected….

    Mitt is a real loser. I would love to know if he would even be alive had his ancestors not practiced polygamy. I think some of these Mormon leaders are trying as hard as possible to disown their polygamous past and to show that they are in line with the one man/one woman positions they were forced to take for Utah to become a state.

    Willard and his cult are in no position to weigh-in on human rights in a meaningful manner. You are irrelevant Mittens – go back to LaJolla and count your millions but don’t forget to tithe to the LDS.

  8. SpaceCadet says

    The Republicans still do not have a clear front runner for the 2016 POTUS election and I’m hearing news reports that some in the GOP
    are courting Romney to go at it for the 3rd time.

    Firstly I must say, David Gregory is the picture of amateur journalism. I can’t stomach watching Meet the Press anymore because of him. He’s weak!

    Given how polygamous Romney’s own family tree is, what gives this presidential loser the right to say who gets married?

  10. DavidAz says

    I don’t know which is worse, listening to that pious slime-on-a-stick bigot or listening to the other MTP slime-on-a-stick bigot who shares the exact same beliefs. Its just more Republican filth either way you look at it.

    The trial judge in the Loving v. Virginia case, Leon M. Bazile, wrote: “Almighty God created the races white, black, yellow, malay and red, and he placed them on separate continents. And but for the interference with his arrangement there would be no cause for such marriages. The fact that he separated the races shows that he did not intend for the races to mix.” RMoney’s message of gay intolerance is no different from Bazile’s message of racial intolerance. They both use the Bible, and their beliefs, to discriminate against a minority. It was wrong then, and it’s wrong now.

    This coming from someone who belongs to a polygamy cult. Whose grandfather fled to Mexico, because they officially gave up polygamy in return for being allowed to establish their own little theocracy in Utah.

  13. SpaceCadet says

    It is amusingly ironic that Mittens touts the institution of traditional marriage as having been defined as between a man and a woman for several thousands of years and yet his very religion was founded with one of its defining characteristics being polygamous marriage!!! And the Mormon Church would still be practicing polygamy if not for the U.S. not granting Utah statehood as a condition that they ban such practice.

  14. woodroad34 says

    This from the entitled bigot who couldn’t understand why he lost, why people didn’t looooovvvvve him; or why people find him to be as stupid as George Bush. Immensely out of touch and sociopathic.

  15. Jim Stone says

    But Mitt..what if Mom and Dad have a meth lab in the basement? And what about all of those “throwaway kids” from Moms and Dads in foster care? Would they be better off in foster care rather than in a loving stable home with 2 Moms or 2 Dads? Enlighten us you epic loser! Please!

  16. JackFknTwist says

    We are bored with you Mitt.

    Now let’s address what we need to address; there are elections coming up.
    The two faced treachery of Mitt, McCain, and the fanatical fascism of the Tea Party must be the first topic of all conversations in politics.
    Let’s concentrate on how the Republicans despise women, suppress immigrants, will repeal gay rights and have nothing to offer blacks except being stuck in a permanent poverty cycle and will allow religion to become a determining value in public life.

    Republicans are the most revolting collection of self promoters in the USA.
    They actually believe that “the common good” is dirty socialism……..whereas ripping off the working class majority is the goal of their K Street lobbyists.

  17. Ninong says

    “But I think that marriage should be defined in the way that it has been defined for several thousand years.”

    Haha! This coming from a man whose great-great-grandfather, Parley Pratt, was murdered in 1857 by the estranged husband of his 12th wife! Besides having a great-great-grandfather with 12 wives, Mitt had a great-grandfather with four of them.

    Biblical marriage was usually about a man and as many women as he could afford to keep. Even today there are countries with multiple wives are legal as well as common. Osama bin Laden had four wives and that was perfectly legal.

    So Mitt Romney is lying and he knows it. He needs to quit worrying so much about marriage and get back to building his new 11,000 sq ft beach “cottage” in La Jolla with the elevator to take all of Ann’s Cadillacs down to the basement parking level.

  18. EchtKultig says

    Let me help you Romney:
    “I think you stand for various principles – especially the ones most likely to get you elected”
    This man is a completely charlatan and fraud, like the founder of his “religion”.

  19. Louis says

    And this guy is still clueless on why he lost the minority, lgbt, youth vote….

    If he doesn’t get this after having lost the presidency to a VERY vulnerable first term president.

  20. teeveedub says

    I love how Mitt keeps referring to the “setting,” as if some master planner could come in and perfect the environment for children to be raised in. How about using the word “family,” Mitt? Would you choke on that, if it referred to children being raised by parents of the same gender?

    I’ll leave it to others to refute his ridiculous premise that the only purpose for marriage is to raise children. I’m tired of beating that drum myself, so I hope there are some who are less weary of such falsehoods who will address that concern.

  21. james st. james says

    I wonder if he’s coming out in public because he thinks Christie in New Jersey is all washed up? His wife said never again but it looks like he’s running in 2016. Just shows how empty the Republican field is.

  22. anon says

    His people have been spinning the notion that the 2012 elections were “stolen” by team Obama and that polling companies were committing fraud by publishing falsified numbers. They don’t believe it, but they want enough primary voters to believe to keep open the possibility that Romney could run again in 2016. The problem for him is that the money people don’t want him to run again.

  23. StudioTodd says

    Is it, Mitt? Is it “fine,” really?

    Gee whiz Mr. Mitt, thank you so much for giving us permission to live together with absolutely no rights or protections whatsoever! Your generosity really knows no bounds!

  24. andrew says

    From all that I have read Romney is a good family man. However, listening to a Mormon talk about the ancient marital tradition of one man and one woman is like listening to a Catholic Bishop talk about raising children in a safe and protective environment. Oh how fortunate this nation is that Obama is in the White House and Romney is not.

  25. wale aboderin says

    THANK U MR.ROMNEY FOR STANDING UP FOR YOUR VALUES. WE NEED MORE PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND PUTIN. ENOUGH OF THIS HOMOSEXUALPROPAGANDA.THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO LIKE TO PUT THEIR PHALLUS IN ANOTHER MAN’S ANUS. A DIRTY AND UNNATURAL ACT. IS THAT WHAT ALL YOU GAY LOVERS/SUPPORTERS WANT TOPREACH TO OUR CHILDREN? WELL, I AS A HETEROSEXUAL PARENT ALSOHAVE THE RIGHT TO SHIELD MY CHILDREN FROM INAPPROPRIATE LIFESTYLE. THE VALUES I GIVE TO MY CHILDREN SHOULD BE FROM ME AND NOT FROM A BUNCHOF DEVIANTS AND THE PRESS. YOU ALL MAKE IT HARD TO BRING UP OUR CHILDREN IN A WHOLESOME HEALTHY ATMOSPHERE. PLEASE STOP PROMOTING HOMOSEXUSALITY TO OUR CHILDREN.ALSO, THE ADOPTION OF CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF SIXTEEN SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED. IT TANTAMOUNTS TO CHILD CRUELTY WHEN U DON’T ALLOW A CHILD TODEVELOP UNDER A NEUTRAL REGULAR ENVIRONMENT. IT WILL LEAD TOBEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS LATER ON IN LIFE.BESIDES THEIRARE MANY HETEROSEXUAL COUPLES LOOKING TO ADOPT AND THEY SHOULD HAVE FIRST PRIORITY.

  26. EdA says

    So speaks the emissary of the 1%, a man whose own campaign christianed him (Mormonized him?) as Mr. Etch-A-Sketch for his willingness to say anything to anyone, regardless of what he had already told others, if dissembling would profit him.

    And who pays any attention anymore to David Gregory anyhow?

  27. Jay says

    First a photo shoot with his black “grandson” and now this pandering to bigots. If that’s not a republican grooming himself for a presidential rerun, I don’t know what is.

  28. KD says

    Shouldn’t the rationale he applies — that it’s better for kids to be raised by a man and a woman — lead to the conclusion that no one should be able to get a divorce if they have children? [That would be a problem in Mormon Utah, which has one of the highest divorce rates since people are pressured to marry so young] Or that single women shouldn’t have babies? [OH NO!!! That would mean women should have access to birth control and abortions!] It’s all bull to hide flat-out discrimination (hatred of?) against gay people and a refusal to give them tax benefits and legal rights. Not all married people have kids. Not all people that have kids are married. And no gay couple has kids by accident without solid planning, foresight, and commitment.

  29. Fox says

    @KD – Yes, if they’re so concerned about saving marriage and protecting children, then let’s see them lobby to pass measures outlawing divorce for couples with children until all children in the household are over the age of 18. I’d like to see how far they’d get with voters on that one among the 90+% heterosexual population.
