  •  The first thing I thought (17+ / 0-)

    since I heard it on the TV and the 2011 date was loud and clear was: this is why Romney picked the ridiculous douche, Ryan. Portman being the bland whitebread reasonable sort would have made a formidable challenge.

    That was my immediate thought. I really don't care if anybody is gay or if their offspring might be, but Republicans do and their money comes from frothing fringies who live for denigrating others for living their truth.

    Niccole Wallace, whom Rachel had on, was pushing the marriage/family as a foundation for an ordered and successful community/society BS, reiterating that this is such a conservative principle, blah, blah, yada, crap. I assume central command has sent out carefully worded memos to that effect, including across the pond.

    I don't see the issue as conservative or liberal, it's just fair. Marriage is a contract, like the Constitution, Republicans are in breach as far I am concerned. This new strong society crap is a pre-emptive strike with word salad.

    After all, Portman was standing behind Romney and the Republicans doing his best and selling his little heart out knowing he was at odds with their wacky platform. that's craven. No points. Go to the back of the line.
