Is this legit? Mitt worked hard to equivocate (Mitt Romney trying to have it both ways on an issue? Quel dommage!) on queer issues during his run for MA governer, but this seems pretty straightforwardly supportive.
Not that Multiple-Choice Mitt is incapable of trying to narrowcast this one.
And then, it got so bad that the legislature took the Lesbian and Gay Youth Commission away from him.
I think you maybe meant “quelle surprise”.
– M. Pédantesque
Pierce says maybe not, at least in the sense it might have actually existed but probably wasn’t officially made by their campaign.
Has anyone checked the kerning?!?!
Someone make a tumblr. Sell to Google for 1B dollars. I get 15%.
You’d think that having told a variety of lies throughout a career would make people less likely to trust you. But to paid liars, this just makes Mitt part of the club.

But to be a little fair to the wingnuts, they mostly understand that what one says (let alone what once said) matters infinitely less than what one does…and what one will do in the future. The far right has every reason to trust that they’ll get exactly what they want out of a Romney presidency. Not because Mitt necessarily believes what they believe (who knows what he actually believes?), but because they understand that he wants power and, since he does, they’ll have him by the short hairs.

Is there any evidence that Romney actually believes anything, other than that he is entitled?
I do believe that he believes in the LDS religion. And I believe that he believes he is entitled to be a MOTR, because he was Valiant in the Preexistence.
Ironically, I think his homophobia is legit. He did things as governor to marginalize and disrespect gay people that provided absolutely no payoff for him.
The gauntlet is thrown, and a challenger responds

How the hell did this not show up in the primary?
The Santorum campaign could have gone crazy with it.
It did…I know I saw it a few times. However, I think the authenticity had been doubted in the past.
That Mitt Romney died years ago.
The Mitt Romney who transparently lied about what he believes dies? When?
I think rea is channeling Ben Kenobi:
Luke: Ben! Why didn’t you tell me? You told me that Darth Vader betrayed and murdered my father.
Obi-Wan: Your father was seduced by the Dark Side of the Force. He ceased to be Anakin Skywalker and became Darth Vader. When that happened, the good man who was your father was destroyed. So what I told you was true… from a certain point of view.
Oh no, not him, he never lost control. You’re face to face with the man who sold the world his soul.
The high school assault incident kind of indicates that a soul has never been an option in the MittBot.
Don’t I remember this being put out by some extreme rightwinger group as a way to try to drive gay-hating voters away from Romney? I can’t say for certain, but I do seem to remember that as some sort of GOP dirty trick…
Yeah, HuffPost, whatever. Here’s an article about it; yes, he disavowed it entirely.
i always suspected mr. romney was AC/DC. just part of his ever evolving id.
Yeah, before they added Bon Scott they kind of sucked.
and you’re certain that mr. romney isn’t bon scott how, exactly?
Bon Scott never assaulted another guy for having long hair?
oh sure, that’s what he wants you to believe!
I think that this * is about as close to AC/DC as Mitt will ever come.
* link not safe unless you are prepared to drive an icepick into your skull to just make it stop.
I gotta say that’s a pretty good air guitar move for someone in eight-inch heels.
christ! anyone have a good eye patch for sale, cheap?
Mitt’s position on gay rights has been evolving.
Or maybe revolving? Evolving in a revolting direction, it seems.
Romney: My fellow Americans. As a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball, but tonight I say, we must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.
Gay marriages for some, tiny American flags for others!
how about tiny, gay american flags for all?
This is my screw-up. Sorry, all.
I suppose it is possible that the flyer is fabricated. But why do you believe the Romney campaign about it? To me, that’s not convincing. Although again, I don’t really know.
Coming as it did in the same week that Mr. P graced the Internet with the single greatest blog post title of all time, I’m willing to let it slide.
in the vein of great minds and all, driftglass also coined “Swiss Smarmy Wife”.
I could be well moved if I were as you.
If I could pray to move, prayers would move me.
But I am constant as the northern star,
Of whose true-fixed and resting quality
There is no fellow in the firmament.
The skies are painted with unnumbered sparks.
They are all fire and every one doth shine,
But there’s but one in all doth hold his place.
So in the world. ‘Tis furnished well with men,
And men are flesh and blood, and apprehensive,
Yet in the number I do know but one
That unassailable holds on his rank,
Unshaked of motion.
And it may not be genuine. Oh well . . . .
Mitt Romney supports the right of gay people to marry people of the opposite sex.
…and get free haircuts!
I’m still hoping for a video of Mitt, on a float, leading a Gay Pride Parade in MA – dressed like Carmen Miranda, and singing “Weekend in Havana.”
Now THAT might cause some conservative’s heads to explode!
I just hope the collateral damage is minimal.
Where are the JOBS?
Why isn’t the president talking about JOBS?
I am glad you are comfortable coming out with your inner female here, JenBob. Baby steps to self-acceptance.
Oh, and to answer your question, Jennie, they are here. See that low point, sweetie? That’s when Obama took over from your guy.
Data is a bitch, ain’t it, Jennie?
“Where are the JOBS?”
Where Mitt and his pals sent them.
Why is it that whenever someone brings up gay rights, conservatives are really anxious to talk about the details of the sex?
I hear GM is hiring.
Romney’s spinning fairy tales about jobs.
Four percent unemployment? No fucking way a corporate takeover artist like Romney can get us there. He knows how to throw people out of work, not put them *to* work.

Or wants us there, what with the upward pressure on prole chow wages..
