It’s a valid question, and my answer is ‘nice try.’
GOP presidential candidate MITT ROMNEY, when asked “Do you personally think homosexuality is a sin?” by CNN’s Piers Morgan on the June 7, 2011 edition of Morgan’s show.
Why doesn’t he just stick with that as a stock answer?
Is London ready for the Olympics? ”Nice try.” What’s your opinion of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict? ”Nice try.” Are you really fit to be President? ”Nice try.”

Yes. Nice try getting me to say out loud that yes, I do, in fact, believe that. Way too smart to be forthcoming about my very troubling beliefs that could have very severe implications for civil rights and domestic policymaking.
Ignoring my usual ignore Mitt Romney policy to poke my head in and say I hate that smug, tone deaf, arrogant piece of shit. So, so, so much.
YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE SO MIGHT AS WELL SPEAK YOUR MIND YOU JALOPY OF A HUMAN BEING. Barack went ahead and did it. He’s not trying to appease his haters, I don’t know why you are trying to. And if you are actually AGAINST your base on the issue, WHY ARE YOU RUNNING ON THEIR TICKET.
You would think he would say ‘yes’ and be proud of being homophobic.
