    Re: Romney Accidentally Crashes Gay Vets Date

    One has to wonder if this "crash" was anything of the sort.

    Most people are so sick and tired of the gay marriage issue that this incident will likely boost Romney a few points in the long run.

    There is another thing to consider.

    If one takes too many opposing stances , not only will the Republican party lose the gay vote which they oppose but others.
    The Republican party supports the rich the protestors in the street do not.
    Therefore it is only reason that the Republican party" opposes" the protestors .

    The education sytem of America has suffered budget cuts offered by the Republican party
    Sonme say they "oppose" money for education?
    .
    All Republican candidates have directly courted organized religion.
    Is this to say they "oppose" atheist?

    The Republicans have extended rich tax cuts, but not extended unemployment benifits.
    Is this to say Republicans oppose the unemployed but support millionares and billionares

    This is but a few of the things Republicans "oppose".

    Not a big deal, he wasn't going to get their votes anyway.

    Just a hunch, but I think that more people are sick and tired of unemployment for unskilled workers, less opportunities for new College grads, outsourceing jobs, rich tax cuts and a bad economy.

    People on Main street are sick and tired of struggleing to live while the rich and wall street get a pass.
    Average workers are definatly sick and tired of whatching the cost of living go up while wages remain stagnant.

    At least they are willing to take a stand against something, unlike the Democrats.

    Never voted a straight ticket in my life. And I already noted that some nominations could force me to vote Democrat.

    It seems like (at least according to the story) the guy on the date is the one who brought gay marriage up, not Romney. I would think he could be given a little bit of a pass based on that.

    Although just sitting down at someone's table uninvited while they're eating dinner with someone else, regardless of the circumstances, is pretty rude.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Actually, Obama and the Democrats have rather successfully taken a stance against those who provide the vast bulk of the country's tax revenues (a.k.a "the rich")

    And from a strictly political strategy perspective, the Democrats probably have the advantage when the "60 second" commercial soundbite wars begin soon.....

    Yep. A firm stand against Right and in favor of Wrong. Great place to be.

    Anyone who doesn't know who they're voting for the moment the list of candidates comes out; or whose viewpoint can be altered by commercials/ads doesn't deserve the right to vote to begin with.

    Democrats take a stand for the freedom of individuals to make their own moral judgments.
