    Let me guess: You're straight, white, and male.
    Perhaps, you should take some time out of your busy schedule and learn the difference between a prescriptive statement and a descriptive one. The point of the matter is that an unemployed father of 2.3 children is not likely to perceive the issue of gay marriage as being particularly important right now. Indeed, he may find the seemingly constant revisiting of the issue by the gay community via the news media as particularly irritating in the context of the more pressing existential difficulties which he is presently experiencing. Therefore, this so-called "crash" by Romney may actually advance him in the polls.

    Let me guess: you're gay, martian, and utterly self-absorbed.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    If a conservative candidate does not fit the bill on almost everyone of these 10 things, he/she will just get roasted every time he/she goes on stage to debate. You have to be an neo-conservative to run for president and be taken seriously lately.
    No different for Democrats on the opposite side. Shut down every oil well and coal mine. Legalized Abortion. Alternative energy at any costs. For any policy even sensed is environmentalism etc.

    This issue actually isn't gay marriage. Exactly nothing prevents gays from marrying.

    Rather, it is a question of equality under the law in terms of insurance, taxes, community property, insurance, adoption eligibility etc.

    The "offense" of the gay couple was no offense at all. It is an absurd concept that before a politician talks to anyone the person/people they are going to be speaking to first are investigated to make certain they agree with the candidate/politician in advance. It is candidates who are vetted, not voters.

    In the past I was challenged and confronted when on a "date" (if it could be called that) for other reasons (age difference and race difference) by people quite a few times. My response would be to inform the person to immediately get away from me making it clear that I would hurt that person if he didn't. Realizing his mistake, whoever it was would do exactly what I insisted quickly. I am intolerant of anyone getting in my face, but not disturbed by it either.

    In short, the gay couple should have told Romney GTFO and that the end of it. Nothing wrong with Romney approaching them as potential voters with his view.

    There is no story about Romney's position offending gays. That's already known. Nor is Romney different from the other Republicans on that issue.

    Huntsman and Paul hold different views on this issue.

    Because they're too busy wallowing in their own filth to get out and vote, and Romney is afraid of catching something.

    Maybe he might catch some common sense while he's over there.

    LOL, but I don't think the OWS is in the streets to pick up chicks.

    As for the Ron Paul sign, no wonder people think the protestors are living in filth, must have saw the Ron Paul sign and nothing else. lol.
