Romney targets gay marriage in new ad
Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney is launching a radio ad touting the strength of his opposition to gay marriage. Romney, who has come under criticism from conservatives for his past support of some gay rights issues, says he is the only major GOP candidate backing a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. "Not all Republican candidates agree, but defending marriage is the right thing to do," Romney says in the 60-second spot to begin airing Wednesday.It's difficult for anyone in this country to believe that a US presidential candidate would make such a big deal about same-sex marriage. The US faces economic crisis, failure in Iraq, a threatened war with Iran and this guy worries about what? Gay partnerships! It beggers belief.
