Look, I realize that this election will be primarily about the economy,as it should be since it effects all Americans. And maybe some of the other issues brought up have been diversions.
But if offends me when Romney refuses to talk about anything other than the economy, brushing off issues like the legalization of marijuana and gay marriage as unimportant,
Well, clearly Romney opposes gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana. What more is he supposed to say? I disagree with Governor Romney on these issues. He has stated his position, and wants to talk about the economy because that is the most important issue facing America and the rest of the world. I do not see much of a problem with this, really.
Obama and Romney both know what their strengths and weaknesses are. The only difference is that Obama, in fact, is willing to talk about all issues, including the economy, with the voters. Obama knows that as a candidate he needs to be held accountable for his entire record on all issues, and that's something Romney just doesn't get.
Romney is always willing to speak about his record as Governor. And he is on the record on all issues, including gay marriage, which is not something he wants to talk a lot about because if somebody is overly interested in gay marriage and a discussion about it, they should see Obama or Santorum, not Romney. Romney is in the middle on this issue, and the Obamas and Santorums of the world can duke out that fight while Romney focuses on the economy.
