Romney: 'Talk about Greece'

Pander to the base? Sure. But how far do you go?

A day after President Barack Obama said he supports the right of gay men and women to marry, Mitt Romney was accused of having harassed a high school classmate because he was gay.

Romney denied it, of course, but it must be confusing for him. As the standard-bearer for the Republican Party, how far (into people's bedrooms) do you go?

Romney must be so frustrated ... an endorsement of gay marriage should be the electoral kiss of death, yet Obama has pissed off only those who hated him already.

Roberto De Vido is a communications consultant, writer, cartoonist and jack of many trades. The former chief of Tucson Sentinel’s East Asia Bureau, he now lives in California (make of that what you will).

“Aren’t there issues of significance that you’d like to talk about?”
