Mitt Romney has been under assault all week for a variety of political gaffes, but a new report in Raw Story highlights the questionable ethics of his top aide and political strategist, Eric Fehrnstrom.
Four of the country's most influential African-American leaders issued a joint statement yesterday in support of President Obama's new stance championing marriage equality.
After the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, spoke at Liberty University today, JimmyLaSalvia, executive director and cofounder of GOProud (a national organization of gay-friendly conservatives) took him to task, saying that Romney's message to Goldwater conservatives is clearly "Drop dead."
His marriage equality endorsement may cost him a few votes, not many.
The law passed 55-0 in the Senate, and the president is expected to sign it.
MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell explains that contrary to what Tony Perkins and Mitt Romney say, the definition of marriage has changed quite a few times over the years. Social conservatives like Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, have grown accustomed to claiming that allowing same-sex couples to marry is "redefining" marriage and that redefining it alone is a radical step.
Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin supports President Obama's position that marriage should be left up the states. "The role of defining marriage has fallen to the states, and it has always been with the states," she said during an interview on MSNBC's Daily Rundown. "Should it be?" interrupted Chuck Todd. "I know it always has been. Should it be, should we have 50 different laws on marriage?" "We have since the founding of this country," Baldwin said, "and I don't see anything changing."
