Romney’s desperation to win Ohio is starting to leave a stench

By: Sunday October 28, 2012 4:09 pm

I know that being this is a Presidential election, we shouldn’t be shocked at anything we see. However, this new ad by Romney goes way beyond the pale. When I first saw it, I thought  “this has to be a parody.  No one can lie this brazenly.” But it is a real ad. And it’s [...]

The real, nasty, anti-gay Romney: as governor he rejected new birth certificates for gay parents

By: Thursday October 25, 2012 1:40 pm

With days to go before the election, Mitt Romney is trying to pivot to the moderate middle on LGBT issues and sadly, the Log Cabin Republicans have been desperate to provide that cover. But the problem with Mittens is that he has a significant history — and record — of nasty homophobia that he rolled [...]

‘Apology tour’ ad reveals Romney’s lack of core & Christian right leaders’ lack of integrity

By: Tuesday October 23, 2012 8:23 pm

The following ad is what you call brazen. It’s Romney accusing President Obama on going on an “apology tour” at the beginning of his presidency: This claim that President Obama went on an “apology tour” (i.e. went to foreign countries and apologized for the past actions of America) has been pushed almost as many times [...]

Log Cabin Republicans: Thumbs Up to Mitt Romney

By: Tuesday October 23, 2012 9:20 am

This gay Republican group sat out endorsing Bush, but here they give an endorsement to Mittens, who would send things right back into the crapper. To see Ted Olson, who with David Boies are litigating Prop 8 to the Supreme Court in support of marriage equality, give a nod to a man who wants to roll LGBT rights backward is sad.

Team Romney etch-a-sketches on federal marriage amendment comments within minutes after Buzzfeed report

By: Sunday October 21, 2012 12:57 am

A reminder — Mitt Romney’s (continued) support for a federal marriage amendment signals that President Obama’s “cinderella crumbs” —  “policy changes” or recommendations to agencies to broaden its interpretation of a policy or mission to be inclusive of LGBTs – can, and would likely be reversed in a Romney administration. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised [...]

How many myths can Mittens spew in 38 minutes of a debate?

By: Thursday October 4, 2012 7:21 pm

At least 27. I didn’t watch the debate in real time; I was jamming in Greensboro at a Journey concert — front row seats. I asked my peeps on Facebook and Twitter if I missed anything interesting about the debate. Folks didn’t hold back. Of course when I did watch the debate, I was glad [...]

Mama Ann Romney worries about the mental health of Mittens…

By: Tuesday October 2, 2012 6:24 pm

She really is the gift that keeps on giving… Ann Romney, the wife of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, told a Nevada television station her main concern if her husband wins the upcoming election would be over his state of mind. “I think my biggest concern, obviously, would just be for his mental well-being,” she told [...]

The Sweepstakes Candidate: Mitt Romney’s Pay-To-Play Campaign

By: Saturday September 29, 2012 12:19 pm

The words Mitt Romney will be most remembered for: “Donate $3 today to be automatically entered for your chance to win“ A political campaign using a contest to raise money is nothing new, but the Romney-Ryan campaign has taken the method to excess by sending out at least 28 sweepstakes emails since I signed onto [...]

Stay classy, Team Mittens: foreign policy adviser John Bolton calls Obama’s Libya response ‘Limp Wristed’

By: Friday September 28, 2012 3:18 pm

Lacking any imagination (and letting its homobigot slip show), Team Mittens goes there… (Think Progress): Former US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton employed the term, usually used as a slur against or allusion to gay men, to describe the Obama administration’s response to the attacks in Libya earlier this month: The US is viewed [...]
