Mitt Romney today made one more stride at fusing church and state, with his speech at Liberty University. His pandering seems to know no boundaries.
In one fell swoop, Romney sucked up to the “religious” right and fumblingly grabbed at the youth vote, a demographic for which he desperately needs to gain traction. (I hope, for his sake, that he doesn’t consider the students at Liberty University as being representative of the youth vote.)
The line in his speech that made the 30,000 or so lemmings in the stadium leap to their feet and applaud was:
“I believe that Marriage is a relationship between one man and one woman.”
This, of course, is the same person who claimed in 1994 that he was going to be to the left of Ted Kennedy on gay rights. This is the also same person who signed the nation’s first marriage equality law into effect.
Does anyone else find it somewhat ironic that a speech advocating significantly restricting liberty is being delivered at Liberty University?
