  1. Thanks for the info. As a liberal atheist with many gay friends, I’ll be quite happy if Mitt turns out as the nominee. Cheers!

     
  2. Well, there goes the gay vote and probably a lot of independents, too for Gingrich and Santorum…….being the true RINO we know he is, Romney wiggles his way out of the tough issues as usual. Paul is a crazy, not many take him seriousily. I still think Gingrich is our man even though my personal beliefs about the topics here are more liberal than his.

     
  3. I don’t think there needs to be a question mark after Paul’s opposition in the first couple of categories. It runs in my mind that he’s said outright that the Federal government shouldn’t be involved in yea-ing or nay-ing gay marriage–that doing either one qualifies as Big Government intervention, and should be the purview of the states.

     
  4. What does sodomy have to do with family values? I don’t see the connection. What am I missing?
    If there is no connection, then what kind of ‘report card’ is this? The language in this ‘piece’ bespeaks some pretty far out assumptions, regardless of one’s taste in cock.

     
  5. Sheesh, go through those ten questions and keep only those that the President is granted by the Constitution any authority to do anything about them, either pro *or* con. Depending on just exactly what each is talking about, I figure it’s Nos. 1 (which is actually a “Yes” for Paul, as he is already on record that he will enfore the Defense of Marriage Act), 4, probably 5, 6, maybe 7 (at least within the federal workplace), and 8. Now realize that “no” is the correct answer to 8 since it’s not properly a federal issue. Finally, while these remaining points are certainly something to consider, apply the appropriate weight to them in comparison to so many other topics, and they fall down below the noise floor.

     
  6. Grouchy, I feel that the gay marriage is doing the ground work for Muslims to have their multiple wives…
